Last night's TV : 'Exposed: Ireland's Secret Cults' - 2011-09-27
Knock and the door shall be opened, and so on. Unless you're a TV3 reporter that is.
The programme opened with the Oxford dictionary definition of a cult: "a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or as imposing excessive control over members". This is a bit problematic to start with, because if you take out the words "relatively small"... well, you get the idea.
"Ireland has always had the reputation of being a very religious country but recently all that's changed," said Michael Ryan portentously. "The power of the Church here is no more."
