From an article on new religious movements, refering to a conference wherein the author met people of various religious backgrounds, including but not limited to: a Hare Krishna, a neo-pagan, European Bahais, British Moonies, members of a small messianic community known as the Twelve Tribes, and Scientologists.

"That sounds like an exotic cast of characters, but actually it wasn't. The NRM members I encountered at the London conference were no more or less eccentric, interesting, or threatening than any of the people I rode with every morning on the London Underground. I found this oddly oppressive; I thought I'd be getting strangeness and mystery, but instead I got an essential human blandness. The people I met were just people."

Dontcha hate it when that happens? :)
