A few years ago, I was pressured into attending The Legacy Center in Morrisville, North Carolina. Their first course was called the Basic and our trainer was named Ray Blanchard who happened to have a PhD.
This place was supposed to be some type of educational center that helps people overcome their past and achieve their dreams. It was only later that I found out that it was a money grubbing cult espousing worthless and scary new age philosophies.
Ray Blanchard was charmining and extremely well dressed. Something seemed odd about his teachings at the time but I couldn't put my finger on it until later.
There was the usual mind control and sleep deprivation as well as dancing and new age music. However, I'm going to focus on only two things that seemed very strange.
First, Dr Blanchard related a story about a man in New York City whose job was that of a professional street beggar who made over $100,000 per year. He asked us what we thought of this from a moral point of view. Many of us thought that this was wrong because this man was deceitful as well as a liar and a thief.
Ray told us that we were wrong and that it was just fine for this man to do this and that morality depended on the situation and the person's point of view. What I realized later is that DR Blanchard was preaching SITUATIONAL MORALITY. This is a New Age Secularist philosophy that is in total opposition to the Bible and the Ten Commandments!
Have you ever heard of "Thou shalt not lie" and "Thou shalt not steal"? His teachings are in direct opposition to Christianity. And total BULLS**T.
Later in the trainings were were directed to play something called "The Red Black Game". I'm not going to bore you with details so here is a very short summary. We were divided into two seperate teams in two seperate rooms and told that our goal was to get the most points.
The final result was a score something like -6 to -16 or something like that. Little did we know there would be hell to pay.
By this time it was after 1 AM and we were told to file back into the main auditorium in silence. The trainer had a look that would kill. When we got to our seats we were ordered to close our eyes and the trainer screamed at us for over 30 minutes straight. We were told that what we did in the game amounted to war and the way we played that game was the way we lived our lives. That screaming lecture accused us of just about every negative behavior imaginable. We were told that crime in the streets, racism, and other personal and social problems were because of people like us. You would have thought we were the leaders of Russia and America who just fired off an all-out nuclear exchange at each other and were now being called to account for it in hell. Those of us who knew how the game was supposed to be played and voted black were especially berated because we didn't "take a stand" for the win-win situation.
After a night of sleep deprivation and now another late night plus all the psychological opening exercises, this screaming lecture over a PA system sends thunderbolts through your consciousness. I felt like with every sentence that a powerful jolt of electricity was sent through my nervous system.
I found out later that this was all bullshit and more about controlling us than anything else. Outside of our view and hearing, Ray Blanchard and Rob Katz were laughing their a**es off! Many people freaked out and were extreamly upset, to say the least.
These trainings and Dr Blanchard resulting in me having a major psychiatric meltdown. These people only care about picking your pocket and taking your hard earned money. They run a very dangerous cult and have no psychiatric training. Hundreds of people have been seriously damaged as a result. Additionally, their teachings are ANTI CHRISTIAN as well as either extremely damaging or worthless (if you are lucky).
Those teachings are SECULAR and NEW AGE. This place is a cult designed to steal your money.
Dr Ray Blanchard is a con artist and a dangerous fraud as well as a liar and a cheat!
