Does the Government need to start regulating and monitoring new Churches that behave like Cults?


In the news recently, two brothers were savagely beaten and one died due to his injuries in an upstate NY church. They were beaten so they would confess their sins. It was not one of the recognized Christian denominations and seemed to be private. in fact, the catholic priest next door, stated that they didn't welcome newcomers. Is that a sign of trouble and should they be monitored by state child welfare workers for possible abuse? http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/cultlike-practices-at-word-of-life-church/ar-AAfwRJ0

    It seems that the government agencies are private ones for that matter, cannot help anyone until a crime is committed.

    There are many people who cannot distinguish good from evil. They are weak minded,depressed and directionless and are looking for guidance in their lives.

    Should they have some protection against unscrupulous religious organizations?

    Because Christianity lends itself so well to cults, many Americans have a hard time understanding what a cult is. A cult is a mind control medium. They lead people into doing things that defy logic regarding positive living. Suspect NE such religion!
