Swedish pastor accused of leading violent 'cowboy sect'
The Old West...where you drive a Saab or Volvo instead of riding a Horse.
A southern Swedish religious congregation based at a cowboy-themed conference centre has been accused of harbouring a violent and extreme religious sect.
According to religious affairs programme Existens, members are often bullied into working long hours at the centre, and children are taken out of school and made to work at the cowboy-themed Lone Star park and conference centre in Höör, 50 km north of Malmö.
The cowboy-theme park may look like a line-dancing paradise, but according to defectors, life under parish pastor Christer Segerliv is far from heavenly.
Calling himself the Sheriff of Lone Star, Segerliv demands total subjugation from parish members, defectors claim.
There is a new Sheriff in town, and it ain't Jesus Christ....
