They haven't done anything illegal? Taking advantage of momentarily weak-minded ponies isn't a crime?
Darn it, Equestrians!! Do you even know the concept of anti-sects laws?

As far as I know, cults stay inside the law most of the time. Even the really creepy ones.
ColonelBSacquet's avatar
Of course, being creepy isn't illegal.

But taking advantage of a person's momentary weakness to coax her (or him) into a sect is illegal.
At least, where I come from, it is.

And, to me, the cultists did just that.
They saw Berry Punch was going through a rough patch,
and they took advantage of that to "recruit" her - and Berry Pinch - and isolate her from her friends.
Not to mention making it very hard - if not impossible - for ponies they recruit to leave their sect.

Where do you live?
...Ah, France. Yeah, that sort of law would run afoul of Freedom of Speech in the US. "That group creeps me out" isn't sufficient evidence of illegality over here.
ColonelBSacquet's avatar
Sure. Here, being creepy isn't enough to proove illegality either.

But we do have laws to fight against sectarian groups.
And for them to be put to court, long story short, it must be proven that they hold the members in the group or inside a facility against their wills, that they took advantage of some of their members' weakness (a person who's mourning a recent loss, an elderly, etc.), etc.

A nice idea in theory, but it would sort of cause a war if it were implemented in the US. I give as my evidence, among other things, the entirety of the Mormon Church.
