warning signs of a cult –  1) Do they believe their group is the only true church, the leader the only true prophet, and their book the only true revelation?  2) Do they encourage you to change your occupation or class load so you can work more hours for the group?  3) Do they require you to raise money and recruit new members?  4)  Is their budget a secret?  5) Do the leaders take an unusual interest in you that requires an increased demand on your time and increased commitment to their group?  6) Do they discourage you from associating with family, friends, other Christian groups and authors?  7) Does the leader expect blind obedience and absolute compliance?  8) Do they seem to overemphasize submission?  9) Do they discourage independent thinking as a sign of weak faith?  10) Do they receive a lot of criticism from outside the group and treat it as an attack from Satan?  11) Do they have legalistic rules?  12) Do they attempt to control your dating, occupation, major, social time?  13) Do they control people with fear and shame? 14) Do they have discipline meetings where members are confronted, humiliated, and forced to confess and repent?  15) Do they disfellowship ex-members?

• Human Exploitation is not reserved to distant countries outside the U.S.

• One university study estimated up to 300,000 children in the U.S. are victimized by CSE-Commercial Sexual Exploitation.

• The average age of an underage sex worker is 14 years old, but the FBI states children as young as 9 have been rescued. In the US, the average age of entry into sexual exploitation is 12 years old.

*Pimps are Traffickers
*Johns who buy sex from girls under 18 years of age are Pedophiles

*Teen and Child Prostitutes are victims and should NEVER be arrested (though many times are, while the John and Pimp go free)

*Media should NEVER use the words Teen or Child Prostitutes. It should ALWAYS be referred to as Human Sex Trafficking Victim or Commercial Sexual Exploitation of a Child (CSEC).

HUMAN TRAFFICKING: (layman's definition) – forcing someone, tricking, coercing, threatening or blackmailing them to perform a commercial sex act (including stripping, porn, etc) or to work while benefiting financially from it.  Even offering a teen a happy meal or a bed to sleep in in exchange for having sex is human trafficking.
