We need a Ted Patrick who can rescue people out of the trump cult.

I didn't know he infiltrated before he started kidnapping teens and bringing them back to their parents.
Any way, I love the fact that COG accused him of kidnapping (which he totally did) but the judges kept giving him a slap in the wrist instead of sending him to jail for decades.

Makes me so annoyed that people take the Bible and twist it in so many ways to try and gain power like life is already hard enough just let people live their own lives and make their own decisions

From Ted Patrick's wiki:
"In 1980 Patrick was paid $27,000 to carry out the deprogramming of Susan Wirth, a 35-year-old teacher living in San Francisco. He was hired by her parents, who objected to her involvement in leftist political activities. The process involved handcuffing her to a bed for two weeks and denying her food.[6][7] She was later released and after returning to San Francisco spoke out against deprogramming but declined to press legal charges against her parents or Patrick."

A problem inherent in his method is that what is considered extremist thought, is subjective. What one person sees as a cult is seen as a faith to someone else. While COG is obviously a cult, being a democrat or a republican is not.

Also much of his work involved kidnapping adults who had made their own unfortunate decisions.
I think he appears to have done a lot of good, but his methods sure are questionable from an ethical stand point.

Someone is trying to snap you all out of it. Comedy has to be the method of delivery. It's funny but it's a Got Damn shame. it hasn't even been a year since the story broke, possibly hundreds of catholic priest raped and molested thousands of young boy over a period of 20 or 30 years maybe more and even after elders and members of the church knew for a fact a priest had done these things their solution was to simply move that priest to another church. Do you fucking understand how telling that is to where we are as a society. We have racist hating other races and religions and some of the rich hating the poor and some of the poor hating the rich , straight hating the gay, gay hating the straight all while children are being raped, molested, kidnapped, children being sold, abused and harmed mentally and physically, murdered in schools, movie theaters and clubs by other children with guns they shouldn't have had access to in the first place. And rich and powerful people mostly white people simply turn their heads because the NRA slips them a few hundred thousand dollars or the catholic church supported their campaign by giving them a few thousand dollars. Not only does the rich and powerful and those in positions of power not care about unarmed black people being killed by police, those same white people who could change the system. Those people don't care about white children being raped and molested in churches or children being murdered in schools. Rather than support the families of the abused and murdered children these people in positions of power befriend the NRA and Catholic church and turn their heads when those group commit crimes. Be very careful because those you support may very well be the ones that will make it possible for your child to be harmed or turn their heads if you are murdered by a 17 year old with a rifle that should be illegal

It should be legal (somehow) to “kidnap” (rescue) a loved one from a dangerous cult. I realize they’d have to word the law very carefully but if you can prove that a family member has left everything behind & is behaving totally out of character & now belongs to a recognized dangerous cult that you should be able to declare them “temporarily insane” & be able to take them by force for peaceful, nonviolent deprogramming. If parents, spouses, siblings etc could get a court order to intervene & rescue their family member that would be ideal. This man was a badass by the way! 😉

I love how excited she is to tell this story. I'm from San Diego and I've never heard of this

What's really messed up is that I've never heard of this guy. With all the talk about representation in Hollywood, Ted Patrick's life as a deprogrammer seems like great material for a feature film.

I wouldn't celebrate Ted Patrick too much. Aside from parents of cult members, he also took deprogramming jobs from people whose relatives believed in a different political ideology than them. Rather stupidly, they believed that their relatives were brainwashed because they didn't share the same exact political beliefs. Ted Patrick took jobs like this even as late as the 1990's, when psychology already knew that core political beliefs come from deep within an individual's psyche, and that outside influence has little effect on them. Unsurprisingly, every single one of these political deprogramming jobs he took failed, since it is impossible to brainwash core political beliefs into the mind of an adult, as those go deep down and make up who you are as a person.


Now, I purposefully left out the fact that Ted Patrick only took deprogramming jobs from conservatives whose relatives were liberal. This was to ensure that both liberals and conservatives reading the first paragraph would feel the same level of outrage over it, instead of one side predictably arguing in their minds that the other side really is brainwashed as they read it. Of course, this really only applies to conservatives. Liberals seem to have the capacity to empathize with people who are different from them, where conservatives need to believe that an injustice is happening to someone like them before they can get outraged over it. I'll just drop this little thought experiment off here now and slink off into the darkness from whence I came...
