    She's also prominently featured in the two documentaries that Louis Theroux made about this family, available on Youtube I think. It's all heartbreaking to see. There's one part in the second documentary ("America's most hated family in crisis" ) where some of the female grandchildren talk about a friendship that they have with a small group of Dutch college kids who were making their own short documentary. It's clear to see that one of the girls is in love with a Dutch boy and with tears in her eyes she has to keep repeating how this boy will surely go to hell. Painful to watch.

    That is so sad. The people in that church are twisted almost beyond help. They are pathologically twisted by religion. It's too bad there is no bible god, I would think if there was, they would be the first to go directly to hell, do not pass go.....

    they aren't twisted beyond help. the proof of that is that some manage to leave. this human decided at one point to make a change in her life, rather than go through the motions.

    anyone can change his life for the better. all one needs is love. blake showed her love. logan showed her love. what appears to be minor at one time may add up.

    Yes, that is what I was thinking also, but it seems to me they will be the only ones to leave, I think the rest are just circling the wagons so to speak. I don't think there will be any more defectors.

    The whole lot of them needs intense psychological counseling. The best thing about that clan is it is mostly one family and there is about zero in the way of actual growth of the congregation. It sounds like everyone else in that town shuns them.
