Sinners are often people who believe they deserve every little thing they desire, and hurting others along the way…well that’s just road Kill.  On a small scale it’s scary, but on the scale these people have done it it’s down right evil.

Preachers, church, your faith are your most trusted source of comfort…but what happens when that world is shattered…
Season 1 of Seven Deadly Sinners took on the world of Televangelists and cultish child sexual predator, Warren Jeffs.

That’s just the beginning though, in Season 2 of Seven Deadly Sinners, we’re traveling to the depths of hell covering Preachers who kidnap, rape and murder the ones who trust them the most.   

What if, after leading you in prayer, he lures to the bedroom. 

What it the same preacher who captures your heart, kidnaps your child.

What if, the priest serving you communion used those same hands to dispose of a corpse.

These Preachers committed heinous crimes - right under …your…. nose.. - with a bible next to their bed - and a cross around their neck. 

Rachael O’Brien is the host of Seven Deadly Sinners, and she guides you on this hellish journey of deception all under the guise of Faith. Subscribe and listen on @applepodcasts  Now Let’s close our eyes, bow our heads and buckle up.

Today is the final episode on the Pride filled out-of-control billion-dollar Troubled Teen Industry. WWASP, deaths and lack of regulation - all stops along the winding road from Synanon. We’re not talking about insects, but an organization that runs dozens of troubled teen camps across the country and the world. Their sting? Just as painful, and sometimes, even deadly. And like, Chuck Dietrich of Synanon, we have another unqualified man ready to carry the torch of attack therapy and abuse all the way to the bank. A man by the name of Robert Litchfield, who without the benefit of a college degree, parlayed his work into a multi million dollar industry. And inspired scores of programs like his that are responsible for many horrific deaths of children, a few of which we will hear about today. We will also hear about what Breaking Code Silence and celebrities like Paris Hilton are doing to shut these facilities down.

A cult that has been described as one of the Most Violent and Dangerous Cults in American History, Synanon, which started as a rehab turned self help group and eventually compound based religion would go on to influence an entire industry that still operates today.  This is truly one of the most wild stories ever! SOURCES: LA MAG PAULMORANTZ.COM CABINET MAGAZINE LA TIMES THE NEW YORKER  WIKIPEDIA YOUTUBE CULTEDUCATION.COM
In part 3 Tony escalates into the true monster he would live to be until his dying day.  Once Susan Alamo was gone, Tony was left to run the cult with reckless abandon, ordering the followers to pray over Susan's dead body 24 hours a day for a year straight, in order to "resurrect her", her body, not buried.... just sitting open casket in a room.  Tony also begins the most brutal beatings the cult had ever seen, went on the run after feds tried to arrest him for that and tax evasion, before being caught.  And so much more evil ensues!  Sources: Ministry of Evil Documentary on Sundance Tulsa World Texarkana Gazette
Susan and Tony Alamo are, the over confident duo, who managed to lure hundreds of people into their cult to work for free, sign their outside paychecks over to them, and worship the ground they walked on.  In this episode we cover how they lured them in, how they kept them brainwashed and a huge surprise at the end where Susan Alamo's grift comes back to haunt her.

The cult of Tony and Susan Alamo "The Alamo Christian Foundation," began shortly after Tony Alamo moved to Los Angeles in the 1960s.  He was convinced his big break as a musician would come any day but he spent most of his time lying and scamming others out of money and into believing he was a big deal.  What he claims happened next is he heard the voice of God and linked up with another con artist Susan Alamo, who claimed the same.  What happened next is shocking.  Decades of stealing money from their followers and abusing children and their starry eyed followers.

Happy Thanksgiving - Part 3
Wrath…Jane Whaley’s deadliest sin, can be described as, the uncontrolled hatred for someone or something, and the unquenchable desire to exact revenge on said object/person. Sure, that definition might make sense if the wrathful person is responding to someone harming or even killing their loved one. But where in the hell did Jane Whaley’s wrath come from?  Because she directed her wrath fueled fury on the most naive and faultless, children who simply laughed, babies who naturally cried, and adults who were just trying to get by in their day to day lives. Currently, Jane Whaley, is 80 years old. She’s flashy. She frames her angry face with hair that seems almost purposely shaped into bold parenthesis meant to emphasize her anger.  Two large aqua-netted curls that look like they were formed by hot rollers the size of a Costco sized coffee can. She wears St John suits tons of jewelry and looks like a 1980s poster woman for the working gals movement.  But she is not the head of Redbook magazine, or the CEO of Sears, she is an evangelical oppressor with no formal theological training, just the incessant need to manipulate and control people to fill the void of what would have been an average existence.  Shudder is your go to for everything spooky!

Murder in House Two - is a true crime podcast like you have never heard before. It is about mass murder – but so much more. It is about cover ups, the fog of war and one man’s fight for justice. It took US Film director Michael Epstein 10 years  to make as he searches for the truth behind the Haditha Massacre in Iraq back in 2005.  24 unarmed Iraqi civilians – including women, the elderly and young children – were shot multiple times by a group of US Marines.

Lust in the simplest of terms can be described as an intense longing, perhaps a coming of age confused - constant thought of a high school crush or a celebrity you see on TV.  People who are in the throes of lust may lose their sensibilities, since lust seems unable to recognize the reality of a situation or motivates one to neglect it. It’s a excuse that can be slightly valid in the most innocent of cases but there’s a fine line between a crush, and lust crossing dangerously over into stalking, non consent, or even worse violent sexual assault. But the crush excuse or innocent lack of “sensibility” in the moment does not describe the subject of this season’s lustful lecher Pastor Matt Baker.  No, in fact he was callous, unashamed, and unapologetic in his pursuit to control and take what he felt he deserved.  He “ordained” the time or place of the encounter. He sought to conquest and manipulate,  but mostly barrel his way into groping or finding the most disgusting of times to violate innocent teens, women, and overall, everyone that knew him.  But the person he manipulated, gas lit and violated the most was his unbelievably devoted wife, who’s life was destroyed by her husband Matt Baker...

Jesus Christ. What a horrible little person.

not quite sure I agree with how she delineates sociopathy from psychopathy. my understanding is psychopaths are those who know things are wrong, but do them anyway. Your Ted Bundies of the world as she mentioned. but sociopaths are those that don't see that nuance of right or wrong. what is just IS. Those who have no grasp of societal norms. Your Ed Kempers of the world. of course, most psychology is just bunk anyway, so take that with a grain of salt, ha ha!!
