November: Cult Awareness Month
To my knowledge, there is no registered “Cult Awareness Month” designated to commemorate notable events associated with spiritual abuse. However, if I were to create such a memorial it would have to be in November. And that’s what we are proposing to do this month through social media. Some of us are already engaged in bringing awareness to the public through our Facebook pages and speaking engagements, but some have good reasons to keep a low profile and that is understandable. For those who can participate, we’re inviting you to make November CULT AWARENESS MONTH with us by posting more than the usual information about Jehovah’s Witnesses and/or the psychological studies on shunning and cults in general on your social media pages. There is no shortage of videos, news articles, personal blogs, and websites like this from which to choose.
We invite you to view the coverage we compiled on it here: Did you feel the mountains tremble on November 5, 2017?

What Is A Cult?
For the complete article on this see Are Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons a Cult?
As a former member of the Watchtower Society, I was fully aware that people considered my religion to be a cult. Yet I maintained that I was in “the truth.” That’s not surprising to hear from current members as they are regularly instructed never to view any material that holds the Watchtower up to scrutiny. Therefore, the only explanation of what a cult is that members will ever read is from the official website of The Watchtower Society who has answered the question for them Are Jehovah’s Witnesses A Cult?
In the interest of respecting the B.I.T.E model provided above, we feel it only fair to let the public discern through their own research without such “information control.” And so won’t you join us in setting aside November as CULT AWARENESS MONTH?
To start off with some general education on cults without naming any specifically, here is an interesting suggestion.

And if you’d like to raise awareness about Jehovah’s Witnesses or Mormons specifically, we encourage you to share anything from our website that has been helpful to you!
Keep yourself in God’s love,
