Have you ever known anyone who has been a part of a cult or a wacky religious sect? Who was it and what were they a member of? Any interesting anecdotes/stories?

Hypothetical situation: you get a phonecall tomorrow from someone you're really close to (family member, partner, best friend, etc.). They tell you they've just become a fully-fledged member of your local looney cult, and they want you to join up too. You tell them no, but they keep on telling you about how great their newfound 'religion' is and how they feel it would enrich your life. They just won't shut up about it. What do you do? End your relationship then and there? Join up? Put up with them constantly trying to convert you? Try to persuade them to leave the cult? ...other?
