In my personal experience, Scientologists and Moonies are very reluctant to admit who they are, and you have to know what to look for. The Mormons and Jehova's Witnesses (there, I said it) I've met are pushy and annoying too, but at least they stand up for what they believe in.

A college class I took in college visited a Unification Church ("Moonie") compound as part of our study of "New Religions in America."

Of the groups we visited, they were the most pushy; we were scheduled to meet with them mid-morning and stay trhough lunch. However, as none of us had converted by the end of lunch, they decided to extend their information session, even to the point of their head guru asking "so what part of this are you people rejecting?"

And as Klodomir says of them being reluctant to admit who they are, they kept emphasizing themselves as part of Christianity in its final stage.

We had arrived at about 9 in the morning, and by the end of the day, they had kept us there until about 6 p.m. in our sock feet (we had to leave our shoes at the door) and they only fed us some soup and a cookie the whole time. Much to their dismay and surprise, none of us converted.

I don't recall, but I can tell you that the tactics this guy was using were full of "crap."

The only "CARP" I know of is a large, boney, trash-eating fish that frequents ponds and rivers of the Southern U.S., a holdover from the prehistoric eras.
