Links & Articles relating to The Truth Sect

Updated: Jul 15, 2020

The below are articles and information links I have found over the past 20 years. Many news stories involving people with links to The Truth/Cooneyites do not reference them. They hide who they are, and their religious beliefs are not reported.

Suggestions for resources are always welcome.
