Ordo Templi Orientis Phenomenon
Unfaithful members not only face censorship but also a kangaroo court that shows plain similarity to the Spanish Inquisition: Anonymous informers, no witnesses, and no counsel for the defense. The Inquisitor is investigator, prosecutor and judge in one person.
Sometimes, inquisitors identify plotters and settle their own scores. They point the finger at the lost sheep and draw up some histories on the basis of rumours, gossip and hearsay, without subjecting them to the process of analysis that is elementary for any kind of judgement. They over-estimate here, they underestimate there and are perfectly happy to act as judge and jury.
The defendants publicly have to apologize or risk expulsion.
