Falun Gong is a "personality-drive cult"
(Testamony from Ross Institute)
Li Hongzhi’s teachings also include the spinning "falun," which is a mystical "wheel of law" that he claims to be able to insert into his disciples’ abdomens telekinetically.(RI also exposed Falun gong's racist teaching)
Such fantastic and exclusive claims about a leader fit the classic profile of a personality-driven cult.
While Li Hongzhi talks about "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance," neither he nor his followers actually demonstrate any tolerance concerning critical questions or inquiry.
In Mr. Li’s world view, mixed-race people are part of a plot, contrived by the evil extraterrestrials. "By mixing the races of humans, the aliens make humans cast off gods," he told a gathering in Switzerland in 1998.
