Where doomsday fears come from

NECN reporter Greg Wayland takes a closer look at where fear, fascination and our deepest worries all come together.

His report includes a blurb from false prophet Harold Camping, who has turned his erstwhile ‘Christian’ radio network into a cult-recruiting machine.

Camping, now considered a heretic, has turned Family Radio Network into a doomsday cult that claims the world will end in 2012.

Theologically, it is a cult of Christianity.

Also shown is respected cult expert Steve Hassan, author of Combatting Cult Mind Control and Releasing the Bonds: Empowering People to Think for Themselves.
