    ...Or you could always be creative and use two words, like "cluster cults."  Ha!

    I think that most cults do this...cults have their exclusive culture that segregate them from the outside society to remain pure and faithful in their religious beliefs.

    It's a commune. Like the Amish and Mennonites. They are a group of Christian church fellowships that form a subgroup of the Mennonite churches. They're cool people if you ask me smile

    Religious groups scare me. Scariest things are: #5 Bikers. #4 Mafia. #3 The Government. #2 Children. #1 Religious Groups. SCARY!

    C U L T         In all seriousness, this sounds like a compound, on which the cult or sect as they prefer to be called would commune, which is why they call it a commune. Short for community, commonly held buildings and property on which a group of people other than a blood family occupy.         smile

    Thanks for the answers. Ran across a group who called our company and is now a customer. They had 8 homes on one property, gardens everywhere, and they were very nice. Kind of funny though because they have no clue they called an atheist and would freak probably if they knew. They were kind and paid so their business is the same as anyone else.
    Thanks again for the answers.
