Tulsi Gabbard and the Science of Identity cult


Tulsi Gabbard grew up in a cult called "Science of Identity:, run by a guy named Chris Butler, who calls himself "Jagad Guru Siddhaswarupananda Paramahamsa". They pretend to be Hindu, but in fact, the cult revolves around Butler and the members' worship of him. Gabbard went to SoI schools her entire life, and didn't leave the cult until she joined the Army. She is still a member, and her husband, eight years her junior, is a member. One of her campaign officials, whose campaign business cards don't list his position with the campaign organization, is the right hand man of Chris Butler. The cult is anti-gay and anti-Muslim, which explains a lot of Gabbard's policies.
