“Cultism is one very stupid activity I cannot wrap my head around. You were living a free life, then you decided to join a cult group in the name of freedom and protection, only to get killed like a dirty animal… The world is moving fast with technology and we are still battling with cultism in 2024???? God forbid.”

@Blacksodje said:

“I really do not see any sense in becoming a member. RIP.”
