First Richard Nikoley relates how his father (who happens to have the world's coolest name), was told by his bible-thumping brothers that eating Paleo is a cult, then Dr Davis takes umbrage at being compared to David Koresh in an Amazon review of his new book. This seems to be the last gasp defense of those who think eating bread and margarine is healthy.
Here's my take on being compared to a cultist:
And when I stop laughing like a drunken hyena I would say, "Is that all you got?"
There is the famous quote which may or may not be attributable to Ghandi:
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.Being accused of being a cultist because I avoid grains, sugar and frankeoils is very much beyond the mocking stage and well into the fighting stage. Yeah, it's pathetic, but them's fighting words nonetheless. OK, more like laughing words, but they're meant to be fighting words.
This is what it feels like to win my fellow cultists. The tide is turning and the idiots are grasping at straws. OK, so my dogmatic sister-in-law doctor is still advising my father-in-law to avoid SFAs whilst he indulges in tons of sugar (cancer and double bypass notwithstanding), but the tide is definitely turning. If anyone accuses you of being a cult member make sure and do whatever the hell you feel like, because who am I to tell you how to react? But I would advise you to laugh like a drunken hyena or else you totally won't get that very considerable discount on robes and candles we are offering.
Meanwhile, here's a picture of true evil, or at least one of the better portrayals Hollywood has come up with:
