This work is presented as a non-partisan contribution to the subject of opposition to sects in contemporary France. The debate surrounding sects has been in the centre of the public arena, subject to deep social and religious discussion. The book examines the national Union of Associations for the Defence of the Family and the Individual, and the Center Against Manipulation of the Mind, anti-sect movements who lobby heavily and are largely subsidized by the government. They have compiled a list of 173 movements that qualify as sects, and criminal prosecutors in general and fiscal agencies in particular have plagued many of these associations. In this era of political and religious correctness, few voices are heard in France denouncing the aberration of the anti-sect discourse. One of the problems is that there is no legal definition of the word "sect" in France. The author argues that te creation of an independent panel for critical thought and deliberation is urgently needed.
