Glenn Close raised in a cult?! The Moral re-armament cult?In her own words...

Glenn Close- Raised in a Cult. Celebrity news is not my norm, however, this caught my eye!
Perhaps this cult upbringing explains why she has a male name?
Glenn's father, a doctor? A CIA doctor? Entirely possible. In fact I would say, definitely!
She claims she was able to "break free" from cult indoctrination at 22, but, doesn't say how she managed what must have been a difficult process. She just "calmly walked away" Doubtful.
The scoop-

She spent a major part of her childhood with the Moral Re-Armament, a religious group her father joined when she was 7 years old. She also said she wasn't able to fully cut ties with the cult until she was age 22.

The Oscar nominee revealed she spent several years in a religious cult called the Moral Re-Armament during a recent interview.
Close, 67, said that she was 7 years old when her father, Dr. William Taliaferro Close, joined the group, which was led by Rev. Frank Buchman, described as a “a violently anti-intellectual and possibly homophobic evangelical fundamentalist from Pennsylvania.”
"When her father traveled to the Congo to work as a surgeon, which included a stint as the personal doctor to Congolese dictator Mobutu Sese Seko, she and her siblings were taken to the MRA’s palatial headquarters in Switzerland, where they stayed for several years. Her father’s work meant that they were separated from him for long periods of time."

See that red flag? It's there for a reason. A very important reason. Digression, brief but important and highly relevant- Mobutu Sese Seko was a CIA installed dictator after the assassination of Lumumba. Patrice Lumumba.

The Congo/Zaire
Being a vicious Anti-communist authoritarian, President Mobutu Sese Seko in Zaire received CIA dollars of appreciation during several decades of the Cold War. He rose to power in the early 1960s with the help of a lot of foreign-supplied guns and cash, much of which was provided to him by you know who

 In the midst of all this is a young Glenn Close. Her father William, CIA cult adherent, participant and personal physicians to a CIA installed dictator put in place after a particularly brutal CIA overthrow.

Regarding the "moral re-armament cult" ?

Just the quickest search connects the moral re-armament cult to the CIA. Scientology. Miles Copeland.

Former CIA officer Miles Copeland claims that his CIA colleague Bob Mandelstam made "arrangements" with Scientology and Moral Re-Armament about this time.[24] (Moral Re-Armament is another cult-like organization; Copeland's information on MRA is confirmed by the late Jim Wilcott, an accountant with the CIA in Japan in the early 1960s, who wrote that MRA "was covertly supported and used by the CIA."[25])
Now, back to Glenn-
The “Fatal Attraction” star provided details on her family’s life as part of the cult and how it continued to affect after she departed the group when she was a young woman.
“You basically weren't allowed to do anything or you were made to feel guilty about any unnatural desire," she said.
"If you talk to anybody who was in a group that basically dictates how you're supposed to live and what you're supposed to say and how you're supposed to feel, from the time you're 7 till the time you're 22, it has a profound impact on you.
 Glenn is very clearly talking about some heavy duty personality management and external control via cult indoctrination, influence and drugs, perhaps?  What roll did her Father play in this?  Did he administer drugs to her? He must have drugged Seko assisting the CIA in the coup and government management afterwards. Very, very curious stuff.
Glenn Close (l.) and father William Close attend a film premiere in 1989. The actress has revealed that she grew up in a cult after her father joined the group when she was age 7.

"I wouldn't trust any of my instincts because (my beliefs) had all been dictated to me," she added. Close moved back to the United States at age 15 to study at a Connecticut boarding school, but wasn’t able to completely cut ties with the MRA until a few years later. She said that she would have dreams about the experience while enrolled at the College of William and Mary at age 22.
“I would have dreams because I didn't go to any psychiatrist or anything," the actress said. "I had these dreams and they started with betrayal ... and then they developed into me being able to look at these people and say, 'You're wrong. You're wrong.'
“And then the final incarnation of those dreams was my being able to calmly get up and walk away. And then I didn't have them anymore."
One thing Close did not reveal was her reasons for how she was able to break free from the group.
"I'm not going to go into all of that," she says. "You can't in an interview."
But she did discuss how she came to find closure with her father, who left the cult in 1977 and passed away in 2009.
"I wrote him everything, everything I felt about our relationship, and it was extremely honest," she said about a letter she wrote him when she was in her 40s.
"I always thought, the way life works, the burden of forgiveness is on the child," she added. "That's the way it goes. Forgiveness is probably the most revolutionary concept there is right now in our world.
“Because without forgiveness, you just perpetuate what has been before. You (have to) say, 'It's going to stop with me.'"
 You just perpetuate what has been done before- You have to say it's going to stop with me
Of course, Glenn Close gives no clue as to what has been perpetuated.


  1. Religion is the oldest mind control system and still one of the most effective. It has always been a form of governance, whether by a priest or ruler claiming to be a god or a god-man or having a direct and exclusive relationship with a god or the gods or deriving his "divine right" to rule because he was selected by a god or the gods to do so.

    I have personal experience with the power that a cult can have over someone who does not have the knowledge necessary to understand how they are being manipulated. I joined a radical Christian cult when I was a teenager, having been deceived by their claims about the fulfillment of Bible prophecies, which I now know to be false. I wish I had known that then. It was very hard to leave them and to overcome their brainwashing, but I managed to do it. The deleterious psychological and material consequences of my involvement with that group lasted for years, which is one reason why I am motivated to educate others.

    "All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit."

    1. Hi no more myths-

      "I have personal experience with the power that a cult can have over someone who does not have the knowledge necessary to understand how they are being manipulated"

      Sorry to read about your experience, but, look at it this way- you got out and you learned well from it and that's pretty good :)

      I can't disagree with the Paine quote, that's for sure!

  2. Interesting post about Glenn of my (few) favourite actors. Seems you almost have to have a background similar to this to get anywhere in Hollywood.

    1. Hi greencrow! Glad you stopped by :)
      So true about the similar creepy background as a requisite for Hollywood stardom, but then, when one thinks about it
      Hollywood is all about perception management and un reality creation

      I haven't made it to CBC this week, no time, just no time. :(

  3. Very interesting stuff . . . hadn't ever heard of it. Of course, among the Holly-wood crowd, it's not unusual.

    Love the tidbit stories like this, keep it up! Still reading when I get the chance!

    1. slozo
      if you like this one, you will most likely enjoy the one I am working on, and have been for the past couple of days
      It seems William T, father of Glenn was very, very involved with an Ebola break out in 1976. Interesting stuff

  4. My name is laurent Boer (, and I have been harrassed and manipulated by an unknown hidden cult organization
    They drugged me insidiously, hypnotized me, they programmed my mind with hypnosis and several different kind of drugs, and they didn’t hesitated to do many illegal things including:
    - Under hypnosis, mental conditioning to make me feel terror to talk about them and what they do
    - use some addiction drugs to enforce the power of the hypnotizer on me
    - At work, air spray some kind of GHB drugs to train me to work harder
    - Under hypnosis, format my personality to fit their needs
    - Follow me in shops and coffee places to make me feel paranoid, harassed and under their control
    - Under hypnosys make me watch horror and homo movies every day under addictive drugs to get addicted to this
    - Installed software on my computer so they can remotely send subliminal trigger images
    - Under hypnosis make me hear for hours daily their speech teaching me that what they do to me is great and usefull

    How to get rid of this kind of secured powerfull worldwide organizations?

    Best Regards,

  5. The last quote in this article about forgiveness and personal accountability to end the cycle of resentment is directly from the cult she is purporting to be free from. It is a good idea and one everyone would do well to follow
