The Cultural Gaps in a Cult Child’s Life

WHEN CHILDREN GROW UP IN HIGH-CONTROL GROUPS, they miss out on so much in life, especially culturally. An Interesting article about the The Cultural Gaps in a Cult Child’s Life...

"Growing up in the Children of God cult, I was not allowed to listen to music that was not produced by the group. We kids knew well the story of Jeremy Spencer, world-famous slide guitarist of Fleetwood Mac, who one night at a concert met some eccentric people backstage and left his band to join the Children of God. He never looked back. The Children of God attracted many young, talented musicians from the ’60s. Music, songs, and dancing were abundant and common. But any music produced outside of the group was forbidden and shunned."
