Rutherfraud was a lawyer first and the figure head leader of a religious cult second. As a lawyer, a litigator, he had a natural inclination to be adversarial and adversarial he was in every way. He was determined, once he gained control of the wtbts, to make it his OWN personal religion, which he pretty much did! Nearly everything that main stream christian religions did, he did the opposite. He knew that controversy captures attention. He was the very definition of a charlatan! The sh*t that he and mad Freddy set in motion certainly had an adverse effect of the lives of many sincere people. Jim Jones on a larger scale!
