People make all kinds of comments about religion and religious groups, whether you are talking about a major church, a Hindu ashram, a Wiccan coven, or any other you can list. While much is said about groups which have problems, most of them do not have such problems. Nevertheless, even if the problem is only one percent, how can you recognize that one percent? After all, one percent means enough instances that you need to keep your eyes open. And, just because it isn't “big enough” to get the attention of the TV news doesn't mean that joining the wrong group can ruin your day!
There are “red flags” which you can look for that will identify issues which will identify the group as one which has problems. You need to use your own judgment, and the issues can range from small irritations to valid reasons to leave immediately.
