I have no problem with people's beliefs and practices being culty... at least no more than I have with the mainstream religions. But I get this hero-worship vibe when people talk about these two. Whatever; it's a matter of taste, not principle (and it's purely a gut feeling, not something I could argue for rationally. Probably just my over-skeptical nature kicking in). But I do
raise an eyebrow at the idea that someone's desire to go see them is a reason to fix that person up with tickets. (Although, if I were still looking for tickets, who knows what religions I'd promise to join -- fingers crossed behind my back -- in order to get them?
If you want drama to stop following you everywhere, try letting go of the leash.
