Spread the love

This episode sees us return to the Children of God cult. Continuing from episode 13, we finish our discussion with an update on Vivian Shillander. We also dive into bridal theology, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, and the cult’s history with ”Loving Jesus,” a sexual mystical marriage with Jesus Christ. We’ll go into detail about the church’s various phrases to say to Jesus while having sex with him.

Finally, we close off the episode focussing on some famous faces; celebrities that grew up inside the cult, or those who joined as adults. Among these celebrities are Rose McGowan, Christopher Owens, as well as River, and Joaquin Phoenix.
