The other day, a friend told me about a new church that's sprung up in her community. "Well, it's not really a church," she explained, funnily, and then said that they only meet on Sunday afternoons. A charismatic, handsome leader. No Sunday School for kids or grown ups, absolutely no roles for women. Women are not to speak in worship. Once a week, the men worship separately. The whole congregation works out at a local gym and boycotts certain local businesses (she didn't say what businesses). It's the kind of gathering that turns former church members - family - against each other, a son doubting his own mother's salvation, cutting off contact. People selling their homes, moving into trailers, giving the extra money away. My friend's parents went to a service, if only to see what all the fuss was about, and no one even said hello.
