    Just about all religions frown on critical research from a outsiders perspective, why ?

    There's a difference between wanting to convince people that their interpretation of the bible (for example) is the right and correct one, and punishing, shaming, even killing people for looking for information or even questioning the veracity of their claims.

    Yes, religions of all kinds believe that they are right in everything they say. No one in their right mind ig going to make a claim and say "by the way, I'm wrong".

    What makes it a high demand, controlling, cultic situation is the way people who question or do independent outside research are treated. Depending on the severity of the cult, the "consequences" of their research can be from laughing at them to getting killed.

    The Amish (I think).

    I agree. Some of those communities can be very restrictive, demanding and controlling.
