[Fredric Rice, The Skeptic Tank: The authorship of these files on cults has his or her own motivations for providing them and will contain his or her own bias. What I find typical is that individuals and organizations which report on cults are usually themselves a competition cult yet like to think of themselves as "a religion, not a cult." In actual fact, _ALL_ religions are cults by the primary, secondary, and terciary usage definition of the term. Some of the information you find here is inaccurate and contains urban legend -- take what you find with a grain of salt.

He had been chosen to represent spirituality in its battle with materialism and would be helped by the Hidden Masters themselves, who would visit humanity in flying saucers. Some time after setting up the Aetherius Society to help him in this quest, King revealed his full name to the world: Sir George King, OSP, PhD, ThD, DD, Metropolitan Archbishop of the Aetherius Churches, Prince Grand Master of the Mystical Order of St Peter, HRH Prince De George King De Santori, and Founder President of the Aetherius Society. Before the visitation, George had been a taxi driver. More surprising than these claims is the success King's Aetherius Society has enjoyed. In the 1950s he was able to fill London's Caxton Hall for his rallies. He was and is the champion of educated UFO spotters. One of King's beliefs is that benign spiritual energy is constantly beamed at Earth and it is possible to capture and store it in special batteries. He now lives in Los Angeles with his wife ('Lady Monique King, Bishop of the American Division'). The Society has branches in Ghana and New Zealand and is run in the UK from its office on the Fulham Road in London. There is a benign anti-apocalyptic humanity behind the Society's aims and some recruiting is done, especially on campus.
