Longtime General Hospital fan favorite Kimberly McCullough recently shared a harrowing experience via her personal blog. Apparently, the actress/director nearly joined a cult while a student at New York University.
Falling Prey to the Cult
McCullough revealed that she was surprised by a Bible group’s agenda and shocked at how easily she could have fallen prey to their ideas. She recounted the harrowing story on her blog.
“I knew one person close to my age in New York who happened to be a pretty famous pop-star at the time, so when they introduced me to a nice group of people at an ice cream shop, I was grateful to have an almost instant group of friends,” she added.
That was when her experience with her new “friends” began to change drastically.McCullough recalled.
“I met the elders of the church, who now looking back were probably only in their early 30’s. They took a special liking to me and offered to continue my Bible studies at their house,” McCullough stated.
Rethinking Her Decision
The actress then revealed that certain rules and regulations demanded by the group had her rethinking her decision. The group didn’t want her to go home for Thanksgiving and insisted she needed to be baptized, although she had already been baptized as a Catholic when younger. She didn’t follow their rules, and when she returned from Thanksgiving break, the situation became frightening.
“It was scary. They would show up outside my classes, call me until I would pick up and leave me notes at my dorm room. Eventually, they stopped when I wrote them back and said I was going to make a documentary about them. Don’t mess with a budding filmmaker!”
