The Gnostics mentioned above advocated monogamy, so the “sex cult” label isn’t warranted or accurate. They did have a tantric practice, based on principles common to Eastern traditions like Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism, but it was clearly explained as something only for couples in their private lives. On the English form of Gnosticism, almost all the 90,000+ people who attended the free courses had a positive or neutral experience and left amicably, and neither Mark nor anyone else made any money from it as it was a registered religious charity. Most people never took on positions in the organisation, they just attended the free courses and left. The few who supposedly “spoke out” had actually been asked to leave the organization for misconduct, and only started making baseless accusations when their attempts to come back were denied. They were joined by a few other people with their own agendas, like certain religious people and others who just hated people with different beliefs. Their false claims were all addressed and refuted with evidence years ago. It was actually some of them that went into hiding to avoid accountability when they were followed-up by governmental anti-discrimination commissions.
