Love Has Won, Legal, SSPX, NXIVM

"Several members of a ... spiritual group called "Love Has Won" have been taken into custody after the badly decaying body of the group's leader was found in its headquarters.

Amy Carlson, 45, whose followers call her "Mother God," was found dead in the headquarters of the "Love Has Won" sect, which is located in Casada Park west of Crestone. Saguache County Sheriff's deputies and Colorado Bureau of Investigation detectives discovered the self-proclaimed "divine being" of LHW after answering a tip from a member who told them her body had been transported to Colorado from across the country.

The death near Crestone and its connection to Love Has Won were first reported by Be Scofield.

While being interviewed by law enforcement, the group would not use the word "deceased," when referring to Carlson's death, according to a source familiar with the case. The source told The Daily Beast that members of the group—which law enforcement and ex-members have previously called a "cult"—claimed Carlson was not dead, but was merely "out of communication."

Saguache County Sheriff's Office Sergeant Royce Brubacher told The Daily Beast on Friday that deputies found the body on Thursday inside a mobile home, which is the LHW headquarters.

A law-enforcement source familiar with the case added that Carlson has been dead for weeks, and may have been transported from Oregon. That source said the body was in such a state that investigators couldn't formally identify her through fingerprints, but witnesses have confirmed that the body is indeed Carlson's."

The SSPX and COVID – The Index of Lessons Learnt
" ... My realisation of the sickness within this cult began on St Patrick's Day 2020, aka 17 March, as the COVID-19 pandemic was rearing it's ugly (but real) head, and it will mostly come to an end on St Joseph's Day 2021, aka 19 March.

To St Patrick, thank you for getting rid of the snakes.

To St Joseph, thank you for finding a new home for these people and their cleric.

In March 2020, the real Catholics, the Archdiocese of Cape Town, closed down early to help curb the spread of the new coronavirus. On 17 March 2020, the SSPX cleric had the following to say about this: "These directives have nothing to do with the faith."

When our president announced lockdown, the cleric announced underground Masses held secretly at their chapel and from house to house. He declared that the law did not apply to them – in June 2020: "… these laws have no moral bearing on us whatsoever". And later in 2021: "… none of these laws have any value whatsoever before God, and so we have no obligation in conscience to obey them …".

Sorry, but these laws saved thousands of lives.

I was now living next door to a group of people who had adopted a despicable attitude I later realised was informed by the pseudo-morality of psychopathy. I spent the next year doing what I could to prevent them from treating coronavirus like the Gospel and spreading it."
" ... In 1998, Keith Raniere, an erstwhile vitamin salesman with a history of multi-level marketing schemes under his belt, co-founded a new venture that would become known as NXIVM (pronounced "NEKS-ee-um"). Billed as Executive Success Partners at the time, the company purported to teach clients how to become the best versions of themselves. Just over 20 years later, Raniere—called "Vanguard" by his followers—would be convicted for acts he committed as the group's leader, including sex trafficking, racketeering, and forced labor conspiracy. Actress Allison Mack, who rose through NXIVM's ranks to become a senior figure in her 12 years with the group, would make headlines for her own arrest facing similar charges. While Raniere was sentenced to a 120-year prison sentence on October 27, Mack is currently under house arrest.

As of April 2021, there is still no sentencing date scheduled for Mack, the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of New York confirmed to Fox News. She also filed for divorce from fellow member Nicki Clyne in December 2020, per legal documents."
