FRENCH WOMAN CLAIMS SHE WAS BRAINWASHED BY OPUS DEI
AFP is reporting that a French woman is suing the conservative Roman Catholic secret society/cult known as Opus Dei, claiming they brainwashed her after she enrolled in an Opus Dei-connected hospitality industry school at the age of 14, then used and abused her for 13 years - forcing her to serve as a virtual slave to the organization, reclaiming her wages, etc - until her parents rescued her from their clutches. French authorities appear to have taken her claims seriously, and the defense arguments seem pretty damn flimsy. This could be one to watch, folks.
