SubGenius Recovery and Support Network


Hello, and welcome. This is the informational website for The SubGenius Recovery and Support Network, a group dedicated to the rehabilitation of former members of this dangerous mind-control cult. Many people believe the Church of the SubGenius, founded by Texan millionaire J.R. "Bob" Dobbs, is a joke. They themselves claim to be a harmless group of people who like to poke fun at Christianity, politics, and other institutions. However, as a former member of this cult, I can safely say, they are no joke.

Many people further believe that even if the cult was "serious" or "dangerous" in some way, the threat would either manifest itself, or pass, on July 5th. After all, this is the day the world was supposed to end. The occasion was marked by a weekend of drinking, sex, and feverent, bizarre rituals at a "clothing optional" camp in upstate New York.

Obviously, the world did not end. Thankfully, no catastrophe befell these brainwashed revellers. But I now know some things about the Church of the SubGenius that have made me put out this warning to all right-thinking Americans. I have spent time with certain members of the self-styled Heirarchy, and learned of some of their private goals and fantasies for their Church. I can only say that I am truly horrified at the monsters these men and women truly are.

Mark my words: by this time NEXT YEAR, The SubGenius will be spoken of in the same breath as Heaven's Gate, Jonestown, and the Manson Family.

If you are a parent, a teacher, or a community leader, you need to keep an eye on your children and your neighbors. I urge you to consider requesting my pamphlet, "Stop Bob Dobbs!" which will teach you the secret background of the Church of the SubGenius, how to spot SubGenius activity in your area and in your children, and what you can do to help stop them.

Sadly, suicide cults are largely ignored until it's too late. Help me alert the media and the people to this (self-described) "Fastest growing UFO Suicide Cult in America" before their evil plans come to fruition at X-Day, this July. Time is desperately short.
