Agape Ministries of God:
Australian police investigate a doomsday cult
Radio Australia News
May 22, 2010


A former member of an Adelaide doomsday cult, in South Australia says police have only scratched the surface of what he describes as a highly dangerous organisation.

Police are continuing their inquries into the Agape Ministry, after more ammunition was found in a shipping container at a Klemzig property yesterday.

It's the thirteenth property raided and fifth container found as part of a police investigation into the cult.

Former members like Phil Arbon say the containers were to be sent to a pacific island community where the group was expected to move before what it says is the end of the world in 2012.

Mr Arbon says he is thankful authorities have stepped in to prevent what could have become a WACO type seige.

Police say they believe they know the location of cult leader Rocco Leo..
