    4. Seventh-day Adventists. Seventh-day Adventist Church emerged in the 1844th year in the United States.
    3. Sect Manson. Perverted maniac, a madman who imagines himself a prophet. He declared war between the black and white races. War, which he, the preacher, has long predicted, the war that forever cleanse the earth and opens the way for him to rule the world, over the entire planet.
    2. Sect Gates of Paradise (Heaven's Gate), founded in the United States in 1975 and Bonnie Marshall Eppluaytom Nettlz.
    1. Peoples Temple. The sect was founded in Guyana.

      JThomp - I would not lump Seventh Day Adventist with those killer cults.  I grew up SDA, and have never killed anyone.  In fact, if I hadn't attended an SDA high school and summer camp, I'd be much worse off today.

    My answer is the Branch Davidians. Or any religion/sect that discourages it's members from free thought.

    No one has free thought, though is derived by Prior thought before us, Our beliefs, our likes, our dislikes, our trusts, our distrusts...Ext. it is all learned behavior. I believe all sects are equally dangerous if taking to extremes.

    I think the most dangerous sects are those that pretend to be something that they are not, like wolves in sheep's clothing.

    For instance, the Mormon cult is a dangerous "sect" that attempts to hide facts, brainwash their converts, and follow a different gospel than what Christ preached, but they cleverly conceal these facts with positive spin, white shirts, bold ties, and a multi-million dollar public relations campaign.

    Once ensnared in the Mormon web of deceit, a convert will be lucky to escape with their family and marriage in tact. In many cases, upon discovering the truth about the LDS church and attempting to leave, a member will likely lose all their friends, most of their family, and probably their career as well, since many jobs are supplied by the church.

    The LDS church is like the Hotel California, where "you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave", unless, of course, you are willing to start over with nothing...no friends, no family...no job. This major cult gets you dependent upon them, so that leaving becomes very hard to do.

    In fact, the saying in the LDS church is "Once the leaders have spoken, the thinking has been done." This then, is a very dangerous place to be...rendering blind and unquestioning loyalty to a false-prophet and president.

      I understand the LDS have a huge database with the details, including the family descent, of many millions of people. Why do they need that? Scary.

      That is why a person should never be lead in times of need, because those are times of naivety. Never put full trust in anything in this life except for your own personal drive to succeed. Don't lean on my back, because I might eat ya, tasty cookie.

      Read about the Mormon "Oath of Vengeance" against the U.S. From 1849-1929 they were instructed to destroy the U.S. and this led to the "Mountain Meadows Massacre", where bloodthirsty  Mormons murdered 120 innocent Americans on a wagon train to Calif.
