Advice to Would-Be Religious Leaders: Don't Call Your Headquarters a "Compound"


Colleen Hammond's blog first carried this story, but reading it confirmed what I have thought for some time now-- if you want to lead any kind of religious movement, DO NOT call your base a compound. Don't let the media call it a compound. Heck, don't treat your warts with Compound W.

Need examples?
  • Waco
  • the Texas uber-Mormons
  • Tony Alamo

Compound = Federal Intervention

Hey, I wonder what is going on at the St. Stan's compound...

And, you can see that it takes only a bit of suspicion to raid your 'compound'.
