U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno Identifies Christians as Cultists-Fiction!

 

Summary of eRumor:
It is said that Attorney General Janet Reno appeared on “60 Minutes” on the CBS television network on June 26, 1999, and described some of the common characteristics of cultists.  Her description, however, was the exact profile of many committed Christians.

 

The Truth:

It is a hoax.  Janet Reno’s office denies it.  60 Minutes denies it.  No one has been able to come up with any evidence that the statement was ever uttered or broadcast on television or any other media.

Also, incidentally, June 26, 1999 was on a Saturday.  60 Minutes is broadcast on Sundays.
