[close] This club is not endorsed/run by the real DFN: Pickles and Hairspray. Please visit https://www.facebook.com/Pickles4Truth/ This is the book club for anyone with a fascination for cults, cult mentality, odd religious practices, etc. Stemming from a mutual fascination/dislike of the infamous Duggar Family, this club seeks to build awareness, community, and unity against cult abuse, child abuse/marriage, and suppression via religious fundamentalism. It's also a place where people can poke fun and snark on the Duggars and similar groups/practices (within reason).

[close] This exclusive secret group is for exmos and mormon apostates, those who deny (even if secretly) the truth of the LDS church and its doctrines. Members are welcome, but only if they are "anti-mormon" at heart. Logic, reason, science, and godlessness guide or discussions on any topic relevant to apostates. Do not join if you are a believer, advocate, or proponent of the mormon church. We were once truly mormon but are now defy and deny church power, veracity and authority. Our passive quest is to dismantle, disrupt, and rebel against the mormon church.
