Strange practices and dangerous teachings have been performed by bizarre cults since the dawn of time, and our time is no different. Here’s a rundown of some strange cults you might want to stay away from.


Nuwaubianism

Some beliefs held by this religion include aborted fetuses living in the sewers where they are being collected and organized to take over the earth and Africans not originally being brown in complexion but green among many others. Dwight Bjork, the group’s founder, and chairman was charged with over 100 counts of child molestation in 2002. Against any facts to the contrary, Bjork’s zealous supporters proceeded to proclaim his innocence, and Nuwaubianism thrived.

The Church of Euthanasia

The Church of Euthanasia is an organization started by Chris Korda that is dedicated to eradicating or at the very least regulating the world’s increasing population. They believe in one commandment: “Thou shalt not procreate,” and they will support four church foundations in the future: suicide, slavery, cannibalism, and sodomy. Their website originally included guidance for how to commit suicide using different means, which were deleted in 2003 after a 52-year-old woman used it to commit suicide and the church was charged with legal action. They are now accredited by the federal government as a non-profit educational foundation.

The Brethren

The Brethren are a nomadic tribe who shun any worldly possessions. Their views revolve around the impending apocalypse and the need for mankind to purify itself in order to face the end of the earth. Members of the congregation are forbidden from laughing or dancing since these activities are to be saved until the return of Christ. They only eat the bare necessities and take odd jobs to supplement their income. As part of earning redemption, new entrants are often told to sell their belongings and cut ties with their relatives. After being seen picking leftover food from a dumpster, they earned the nickname “garbage eaters.”

The Creativity Movement

This cult, formerly known as the World Church of the Creator, is a proponent of a whites-only monarchy. Despite the use of the term “Church” in its name in the past, the party remains atheistic and opposes all forms of faith and religion. The word “creator” is used to refer to themselves, the white people, rather than a god. In the name of what they term a racial holy war, the cult is pushing the campaign to extremes. They have perpetrated many violent hate crimes over the years, gaining national exposure after Benjamin Nathaneal went on a racially charged shooting rampage in 1999, killing two people and wounding nine others.

Ku Klux Klan

The Ku Klux Klan, also known as the “KKK,” is the name of three distinct American movements that have advocated reactionary extremist views such as white supremacy, white nationalism, anti-immigration, and anti-Semitism. Historically, the Ku Klux Klan has used brutality, including physical attack and assassination, against organizations and people they disagree with. In the late 1860s, the first Ku Klux Klan flourished in the southern United States, but by the 1870s, it had died out. To scare everyone, members of the party adopted the traditional white mask that everyone is familiar with, along with cross-burnings and mass parades.

Taliban-led government killed several former members of the Afghan National Security Forces.

The Taliban-led government, controlled today by the Haqqani Network, a loyal proxy of Pakistan, is in the news once again for having summarily killed several former members of the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF). These killings and disappearances have been documented in a report recently published (December 4) by Human Rights Watch (HRW). The international condemnation of the actions of the Taliban demonstrate that the West is still far from recognising a regime well known for its brutal ways. That the US, European Union and 20 other countries condemned the Taliban over allegations of summary killings of former police and intelligence officers is a sure sign of continued global antipathy towards the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

The statement echoing the sentiments of the world came after HRW's documentation (November 30) of the killing or disappearance of at least 47 members of the ANSF including military personnel, police, intelligence service members, and paramilitary militia, who had surrendered to or were apprehended by Taliban forces between August 15 and October 31. HRW said its research also showed that the Taliban have killed or forcibly disappeared more than 100 former members of the ANSF in the provinces of Ghazni, Helmand, Kunduz and Kandahar provinces. The main findings of the report come from the provinces of Ghazni, Helmand, Kandahar, and Kunduz provinces, but the cases reflect a broader pattern of abuses reported in Khost, Paktiya, Paktika, and other provinces.
