For many, to exist near Ma Jaya -- a beguiling New Yorker with a tenth-grade education -- was rapture. To them, her dogma was beyond the mortal ken. But there were also stories of profound cruelty and despotism. Former followers say Kashi members were beaten for disobedience or spiritual cleansing. A man said he dunked his head into a vat of red paint because Ma Jaya had asked him to. Masked teenagers reportedly battered a 13-year-old boy with rocks inside socks because he'd angered their leader. In the church's 35 years of existence, adherents claim abuses including beatings, pedophilia, forgery of official documents, and extortion occurred by order of Ma Jaya. New Times Broward-Palm Beach has the story.

On November 16, a 38-year-old woman walked into the police department of Springfield, Missouri to make a complaint.  She told an officer she felt "embarrassed": She'd willingly filmed herself naked for the singles-matching website, Vietsingle.com. But now one of her "matches" was threatening to send the video to her family and co-workers. Daily RFT of St. Louis has the story.
