"While living in the Lubavitch community I was at times both abused and threatened."
"It seems that the movement contains and often attracts unstable and potentially destructive people."
"Chabad's CULT and abusive tactics with young adults and minor children."
"G-d blessed our family and we got Leah home and away from them... but what about
other children?" - "... help us all protect our children from Chabad."
The Lubavitcher Rebbe as a god - Haaretz, Israel - March 1, 2007.
None have a problem with praying to Schneerson, using his books for divination in place of the Bible.
Even amongst those viewed as moderates, "the Rebbe" is often substituted for God in normal conversation,
sprinkling their remarks with comments such as "may the Rebbe help you" or "the Rebbe is watching over us."
Don't ever tell me Chabad is a cult. Don't ever tell me that they are conspirators in a cult designed to
overthrow the Jewish orthodoxy. Response: Your cult is filled with liars and cheats. They beg and profit for
their own lifestyle. They treat woman like cattle and anyone other than people like them are in the wrong.
Studies of the psychological aspects of cults focus on the individual person, and factors relating to the choice to become involved as well as the subsequent effects on individuals. Under one view, an important factor is coercive persuasion which suppresses the ability of people to reason, think critically, and make choices in their own best interest. Studies of religious, political, and other cults have identified a number of key steps in this type of coercive persuasion:
Chabad is a cult, not a branch of Judaism. The only link it has to Judaism is to suck away everything that
exists in Judaism. The following words are described in some dictionaries as follows: CULT: A religion or
religious sect generally considered to be extremist or false, with its followers often living in an
unconventional manner under the guidance of an authoritarian, charismatic leader. The followers
of such a religion or sect. PARASITE: One who habitually takes advantage of the generosity
of others without making any useful return. One who lives off and flatters the rich.
Just like Chabad: "If Chabad Lubavitch are Jewish, then we are also Jewish. They believe that the
Lubavitcher Rebbe is the Messiah, in spite of much evidence that he is not,
and they did not stop being Jewish. That is also true for us."
Many Rabbis have actually endorsed the Lubavitcher Rebbe as King Moshiach... (Chabad website)
Religious mentors in the major yeshivas of Chabad in both Israel and the United States, publications
issued by mainstream Chabad, and influential, highly educated Lubavitch laymen, take the following
assertions literally: The supremely righteous, of whom the Rebbe and Moses are the chief exemplars,
annul their own essence to the point where their entire Essence is that of God. It is permissible
to bow to them with this understanding. For this reason, the Rebbe is omniscient, omnipotent,
and entirely without limits. He is "indistinguishable" from God. Because he is a transparent
window for pure divinity, a "man-God," "when you speak to him, you speak to God."
A religious cult is a group which has a pyramid type authoritarian leadership structure with all teaching and guidance coming from the person or persons at the top. The group will claim to be the only way to God, Nirvana, Paradise, Ultimate Reality, Full Potential, Way to Happiness, Redemption, etc, and will use thought reform or mind control techniques to gain control and keep their members. The group will have an elitist view of itself in relation to others, and a unique cause. They will view themselves as being the only one right, and everyone else being wrong. They will view themselves as the only one doing God's will, and everyone else being in apostasy. They will promote their cause actively, and in doing so, abuse God-given personal rights and freedoms. This abuse can be theological, spiritual, social and psychological.
Q. Is one allowed to pray to the Rebbe? (Chabad website)
A. One is allowed to pray to G-d imagining G-d in the Rebbe King Moshiach's image somewhat similar how one is allowed to pray to G-d imagining Him clothed in the Sefirah of Chessed or Chochma etc. (see Derech Mitzvoisecho Shoresh Mitzvahs haTfliah and Sicha Acharon Shel Pesach 5710)
Why call someone G-d?! (Chabad website)
"... the 1st Rebbe of Chabad as an explanation as to why Chassidim sometimes call their Rebbes G-d which was one of the accusations against them ... a person may sometimes be in unity with the Creator, hence they call their Rabbis "G-d" ... It's explained in the Midrash commenting on Yeshiahu (Issiah) 52 that King Moshiach (Messiah) will be exalted even above angels thus it shouldn't be surprising that he too is called by G-d's name ... the Rebbe-Almighty ... His face shines like an angel of G-d and he himself is higher than any angel ..."
The central synagogue at 770 Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights - the hub of worldwide Lubavitch Hasidism - is
indisputably the headquarters of a messianic sect, and there the messianist slogan is a regular component of the
liturgy. The slogan adorns the headquarters of the Lubavitch Women's Organization in Crown Heights. A prominent
messianist directs the Lubavitch Youth Organization. Major schools in Crown Heights are shot through with messianism.
It is perfectly clear that the Rambam does not allow for just any idea of the Messiah at all to be accepted.
The death of a pretender before completion of the task of redeeming the world and making it ready for a last
attempt to produce souls worthy of the world-to-come proves that he was not the expected savior of the people.
Initially, the message was harmony and justice, and criticism of the hypocrisy of the world. Eventually, stories of beatings, kidnapping, and sexual abuse leaked out in the press.
Then came the almost unbelievable "White Night," a mass suicide pact of the Jonestown camp. The community drank cyanide from paper cups of purple Kool-Aid, adults and children alike died and fell around the main pavilion. Nearly 1,000 bodies were found.
Jonestown became a cultural cliche for mindless cults that drove members to commit suicide and served as a vivid warning against blind faith and charismatic leaders.
