(Back on target) Any info on how to make someone confront the fact they belong to a cult? In my limited experience, they don't really seem to listen- especially to that undervalued human quality, reason.

Seriously, talk about your own experiences and tell stories of third parties so that the seed is planted without confrontation, then when the dissonance takes root, you strike.
Cunning. A friend of mine from cardiff has a touch of the latter-day saints...although he lives a fairly normal life he is continually lying to both his family of Witnesses (about typical clubbers existence) and to his friends (I've got a business meeting- read religious meeting). I think I'll be having a chat with him. Use Grand Celestial Do, FSD etc as third party examples, heehee
Good point, here are a couple of others to Ponder.

Sorry I'm late guys I was doing a bottle drive for the school today. Sifu says if I raise enough money he'll let me ride in the back seat of his Lexus to the next tournament. I'm so stoked you know, we're bringing in a guy who's a 15th degree Ninja. His skills are so great that he has to hide his identity when training with us. I'm so excited.
You know, now that I think about it, are we sure it was dog poo? I mean the phrase 'Think's his **** don't stink...' is readily applicable. Maybe he was just looking for confirmation.
'Oh no Sijo, your poop smells like lavender!' :XXfart:
