Reception[edit]

The French Commission on Cults (1995) as well as a Belgian parliamentary commission, have, in 1997, registered it as a cult in their respective countries, in an annexed blacklist to their report, along with 171 other associations. On May 27, 2005, the cult blacklists were abandoned by the French government as becoming too quickly out of date and responsibility for keeping an eye on cult groups, and returned to local prefects.[14]
