This is a question Join us... come join the cult

A friend of mine recently floored me with the admission that he'd spent several years in Eastern Europe with the Moonies. And he seemed so normal. Have you or your mates disappeared into a cult? Now that the brain-washing has worn off, tell us all about it.

I never joined a cult..
..but at Lancaster Uni were tried to create our own. It started when we were bored one day and said "yes please" when the 'elders' from the church of later day saints (Mormons) asked if they could have a chat. Long story short we received our very own copy of the book or Mormon (cleverly title 'another testament of Jesus Christ').
The idea really happened when the next day some bog-standard Christians called round. After a long chat and discussion we managed to swap our Mormon book for a new testament and the following day repeat the exercise with our shiny new testament, the book of Jehovah and some witnesses!
This was the inspiration we needed: convinced the solution to religious conflict was to unify all the many faiths we continued to swap the various books from visitors at out door, eventually managing to trade nearly every major religious text for another one. Ultimately our quest to get them all to read each others books and agree a common ground failed because we were just too lazy to do any more than answer our door and argue when diagnosis murder wasn't on the tv...

No apologies for the lack of apology concerning length or girth...
