          Family Cult

          November 24, 2008

          Dr. Phil delves into a tragic story that spanned several decades, shattered lives and left one person behind bars. Fourteen children were held captive by a man who called himself The Messiah … a man who was also their father.

          Viewer discretion is advised.

           

          A Traumatic Childhood

          Jeanne says she was raised in an environment which the authorities called cult-like, and that she and her siblings were starved, beaten and had no schooling. In a tear-jerking revelation, Jeanne tells Dr. Phil that she was forced to perform unthinkable sexual acts with her own father.

           

          “He took me in the bathroom, and he made me get on my knees.”

           


           

          Estranged Siblings 

          Jeanne’s younger sisters, Miriam and Sarah, say they can’t forgive her for the pain she caused them. Find out why Sarah says she’s nervous just sitting next to Jeanne on Dr. Phil’s stage.

           


          “I don’t hate her, but I definitely hate what she did to me.”

           


           

          Breakdown on Stage

          It’s been 20 years since Jeanne’s father was arrested, but she and her family say the effects of abuse still linger. In an explosive heart-to-heart with her sisters, Jeanne gives voice to all the pain she’s lived with for the past two decades. 

           

          Can these siblings ever get closure on their horrific past?
