Introvigne's Very Private Plot
Let us briefly summarize again the evidence
for Introvigne's theory that a four-pronged anti-cult terrorist conspiracy
exists, led by secular humanists, right-wing extremists, left-wing extremists
The evidence he presents for Muslims being
involved, as we have seen is none.
The evidence for secular humanists being involved
is equally none.
The evidence for right-wing extremists amounts
to one convention in Milan by a Catholic group.
And what has this non-conspiracy actually
There is no evidence whatsoever for left-wing
extremists being involved.
Introvigne's evidence for "terrorism" ultimately
amounts to two items.
This leaves just one item: the fact that some
critical documentation on Massimo Introvigne's organization, CESNUR, circulates
freely on the web and that every attempt he has made so far to suppress
it has failed.
First, two explosions in Paris, which I believe
we can safely attribute to political rather than to "anti-cult" motivations.
This, in sum, is what the gigantic danger
of "anti-cult terrorism" ("a category whose time has come", in the words
of disciple PierLuigi Zoccatelli) amounts to. Here is how Introvigne suggests handling
"Law enforcement, the article
concludes, should focus on the minority of violent religious and millenialist
movements and the small extreme anti-cult fringes."
Which apparently means that playing with Sarin
gas on the subway and publishing documents on the less well-known aspects
of CESNUR are equally heinous crimes.
