. . .a pupil attitude factor, which appears to have a stronger relationship to achievement than do all the “school” factors together, is the extent to which an individual feels that he has some control over his own destiny. James Coleman, 1966
As a liberal, I really don't care how someone worships, or gets a spiritual "buzz", or strives for insight, spiritual or otherwise.It is a private matter, and a protected RIGHT in these United States.But when these folks try to impose their particular sect's views in THE POLITICAL ARENA,then that becomes an imposition and violation of OTHER PEOPLES" *Right* to have different practices & beliefs or, to have none at all. And the fact that MANY of these groups are secretive and deceptive about their true intentions (see: DOMINIONISTS), makes it all the more immoral, unethical and UN-American.
