"Cibé an úsáidimid an téarma sect nó cult, is deacair na sects a shainiú. Ach lena smacht neamhréasúnach ar dhaoine, is éard atá i gceist le caint faoi sheicteanna ná tagairt a dhéanamh do phobal daonna a bhfuil an teagasc fealsúnach, reiligiúnach nó polaitiúil céanna á leanúint go docht ag a mbaill, in iomaíocht le grúpaí eile. Má táimid ag tagairt don sainmhíniú i bhfoclóir Larousse, tá sé ar ghrúpa de dhaoine professing an fhoirceadal céanna (fealsúnachta, reiligiúnach, etc.) mar shampla: an sect de Epicurus. Clúdaíonn an téarma “sect” comhlachas fealsúna chomh mór céanna le reiligiún ar bith. “Seicte rathúil í an Chríostaíocht”, dar le Ernest Renan, staraí agus foghlaí Francach a raibh ról mór aige i saolú “eolaíochtaí na reiligiún” sa 19ú haois. Déanta na fírinne, nár tháinig an Chríostaíocht ó sheicte de reiligiún na nGiúdach? Go deimhin, níl aon sainmhíniú ar “sect” inár ndlí. Is iomchuí, mar sin de, úsáid a bhaint as an nóisean “sruthanna seicteach”.

The above paragraph, – writes Belgian writer André Lacroix,  is from the Introduction of the new book “Sects – Twisted Beliefs” by the independent writer Albert Jacques. As a retired independent journalist/writer, Mr Jacques is dedicating part of his time to investigating and exposing fake beliefs and harmful cults. It is only through careful observation, analysis and proper legal actions that we, as a society, can hope to defeat those atrocious organizations.

So why would he write a book about a cult? His personal experience may give some answers: “First of all, it turned out that a member of my family became a follower of a cult and that from that moment, his behaviour changed. The most astonishing thing for me was his attitude towards his parents and his brother. He tried to enlist his brother to join the sect. Following her brother’s refusal, he became a stranger in her eyes. Since then when he says my brother, it is a member of the sect he is talking about. Finally, he disowned his parents, the sect becoming his only family. Some astonishing news stories where sects were involved caught my attention. A trip to the United States definitely pushed me to get involved by first doing a report, then a book. In Phoenix, I travelled a good kilometre where the churches followed one another on both sides of the road. In fact these were places of worship belonging to different sects, a term ignored in the United States. While here we are wary of these sects, some of which are even banned, in the United States no problem, they are well established.So when I embarked on writing this book, I knew that I was heading down a rocky path.The sects do not like people to take too close an interest in their prebends and will stop at nothing to keep them.”

“Murab ionann agus go leor, ní raibh faitíos ar an Uasal Jacques a thorthaí a chur in iúl go dian faoi leithscéal saoirse chreidimh chun iompraíochtaí díobhálacha a cheilt. I sochaí ina seanmóirimid saoirse creidimh, is minic a theipeann orainn a thuiscint conas a cheiltíonn an tsaoirse sin réaltacht dorcha na mí-úsáide.” Scríobhann an tOllamh Hassan, saineolaí frith-chultúr a bhfuil cáil dhomhanda air, i mBrollach an leabhair seo. Tá sé ina bhunaitheoir agus ina stiúrthóir ar an Ionad Acmhainní um Shaoráil Intinne, a chuidíonn le daoine éalú ó smacht aigne cultúir.

How to write this book, the writer says:“All my information comes from many apostates who want to talk about the pressures they face in leaving the sect and from the testimonies and statements of influential people in ecclesiastical circles or other religions. Important figures from different religions do not recognise these sects as schisms but as movements outside the religion. I suffered denigration and pressure from people whose primary activity is to defend sects against all odds. On this theme, they oppose the Belgian and German authorities on the subject of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the South Korean government, the Taiwan authorities and more recently the authorities Japanese since the assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. They regularly and virulently attack organizations like MIVILUDE or FECRIS. These organizations monitor sects, ensuring that they do not cross the red line, and come to the aid of victims and parents of victims of these sects.”

Mr Scríbhneoir neamhspleách Beilgeach é André Lacroix, thug sé na tuairimí seo a leanas tar éis duit an leabhar seo a léamh: “Excellent study which clearly reflects the global dimension of sectarian movements, their number as well as their ideological and political convergences. It’s very clear and easy to read.”

Tugann an leabhar isteach go cuimsitheach na gníomhaíochtaí, an struchtúr eagrúcháin agus na modhanna chun rialú a dhéanamh ar chreidmhigh roinnt cultas a bhfuil aithne mhór orthu ar fud an domhain. Maidir le brainwashing agus rialú cults, an tUasal. André Lacroix: “Tá bolscaireacht na sects sách cliste; tá a fhios acu conas leas a bhaint as caillteanas pointí tagartha spioradálta i measc go leor dár gcomhaimseartha chomh maith lena n-aineolas stairiúil-pholaitiúil chun a dteachtaireacht a dhriogadh agus a ndóthain acmhainní airgeadais a bhailiú chun a lucht éisteachta a mhéadú. Tá a gcumas iad féin a chur i láthair mar sheaimpíní na saoirse creidimh thar a bheith contúirteach mar is dócha go meallfaidh sé comhbhrón. ”

Aiseolas

Talking about how to reduce or prevent the temptation and persecution of ordinary people by cults? Both independent writers gave their own advice, with Albert Jacques saying: ” The latest MIVILUDE report demonstrates a resurgence of sectarian abuses in France, which is why, in France, the National Assembly took its responsibilities and adopted the bill aimed at strengthening the fight against sectarian abuses and improving support for victims. The European Parliament should take inspiration from the actions of their French colleagues and act at the European level because the actions of these sects have no borders. European populations must be protected, especially since behind these occult facades of sects, some hide child criminal activities. And I will end with a warning to the European authorities because these sects organize intense lobbying with members of the European Parliament and institutions. They already have one foot in the house.”

Is é moladh André Lacroix ná: “ First means of combating sects: information. As such, I find it regrettable, in Belgium, the lack of resources allocated to the CIAOSN (Center for Information and Advice on Harmful Sectarian Organizations), a lack denounced by this Center in its 2017-2023 activity report. Everyone in Belgium knows the OCAM, the Coordination Body for Threat Analysis, but who knows the CIAOSN? Wouldn’t sects present a serious threat? It would undoubtedly be worth seeking an audience with party presidents to draw their attention to the danger of sects; also request an audience with the Ministers of Education to see if it would be possible to organize information sessions in schools. ”

Sa deireadh, tá tuairimí an Ollaimh Hassan an-tábhachtach: “Is mór an onóir dom é a lua, a phlé agus a mhíniú sa leabhar seo, ní féidir liom ach iarraidh ort, a léitheoir, na daoine a bhfuil meas agat orthu a chosaint ó chreach a bheith agat ar na hionramhálacha seo. ”
