(p.83) 4 Controversy
Children of Jesus and Mary

In its relatively short lifespan of ten years, the Order of Christ Sophia (OCS) has experienced more than its fair share of controversy. From an accusatory media, to disenchanted ex-members, to direct assaults from the anti-cult movement (ACM), the order has matured in a hostile milieu. This chapter examines the major areas in which the OCS has been involved in controversy: first, confrontations with former members of the Holy Order of MANS (ex-HOOMies) who question the OCS's legitimacy; second, confrontation with disenchanted former members of the OCS; and third, confrontation with the media and ACM figures.
