THEIST_WATCH Msg : 134 Written : 10/11/94 07:04pm From : ROBIN MURRAY-O'HAIR Status : To : ALL Subj : Last Supper for a Cult Actually, Eating is Everything One of the best gourmet restaurants near Geneva, Switzer- land, is the St. Christophe in the small town of Bex. A meal there, typically, costs about $76.00. Ordinarily the members of the Solar Temple sect ate there about four times a week. Usually they ordered well-done escalopes (escallops) of veal or lamb, with olives. They were gourmets who would take champagne as an aperitif and Bordeaux wine with their meals. They also favored langoustines (small lobsters). They paid in cash and were generous with tips. About thirteen of them came in, as usual, on October 4. The following morning forty-eight charred corpses were found in the remains of three chalets in Granges sur Salvan -- all having been murdered. As the mystery thickens, all we can say is that at least the condemned ate hearty meals. Meanwhile, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) announced on October 7 that the sect's leaders, Belgian doctor Luc Jouret and the seventy-year-old French Canadian businessman, Joseph Di Mambro, were involved with an arms network on the intentional black market. Millions of dollars of profit were laundered through the Royal Bank of Canada Ltd. and Bank of Credit and Commerce branch offices, all in Ottawa. Money was also laundered in the purchase of real estate. Five more of the sect were murdered in Quebec, Canada. * WCE 2.0/[NR-1167] * Dial-THE-Atheist (512) 458-5731 *********************************************************************** * * * American Atheists website: http://www.atheists.org * * PO Box 140195 FTP: ftp://ftp.atheists.org * * Austin, TX 78714-0195 * * Voice: (512) 458-1244 Dial-THE-ATHEIST: * * FAX: (512) 467-9525 (512) 458-5731 * * * * Atheist Viewpoint TV: avtv@atheists.org * * Info on American Atheists: info@atheists.org, * * & American Atheist Press include your name and mailing address * * AANEWS -Free subscription: aanews-request@listserv.atheists.org * * and put "info aanews" in message body * * * * This text may be freely downloaded, reprinted, and/other * * otherwise redistributed, provided appropriate point of * * origin credit is given to American Atheists. * * * ***********************************************************************
