Dedication to one's religion is a great thing, but when religion becomes excessive, behavior becomes imbalanced. Often relgion is a mask for unresolved emotional conflicts within. How do you know when your religion has become fanatical? Some relgious organizations demand such a level of adherence to rules and compliance with authority among the members that it becomes a cult. What happens when members are ostracized who disagree with rigid, authoritarian leaders? Filmmaker Jaime Prater, former member of Jesus People USA discusses his upcoming film No Place To Call Home, and examines what happens when religious communities hide physical and sexual abuse of children in the name of protecting the organization's public image.
