Why did they made a fetish of the founder?

The sarin gas attacked in the Tokyo subway system in 1995. Thirteen people were killed and six thousand people were injured.

The devotees made a fetish of the founder and killed common men. Most of all devotees had high school background and high income, but they couldn’t judge by moral standards.

The founder and their devotees were arrested and the mass media reports that the founder will be put to death soon.

However other devotees still profess the founder. We are anxious that a similar case might happen someday, because we know we have weak will and wish a strong leader.
