A woman born into a religious cult has revealed how priests kept an iron grip on her life – telling her how to dress, think and even how to sit.

Amber Powers, 47, was born into a cult based in Indiana in 1976.

It was so strict, that members weren’t allowed to have televisions, go to the cinema, have boyfriends or girlfriends, or marry outside of the church.

Young girls bore the brunt of this authoritarian control — they couldn’t cut their hair, get their ears pierced; they had to wear long skirts and long-sleeve tops so men wouldn’t ogle them.

They were even told how to sit as to not attract a man’s attention.

Amber said: ‘We were taught not to smooth the dress out from under us as we sat down because that would draw attention to our rear end.’

At one point there were close to 70 people from Amber’s family involved in the cult, with the total number of people estimated to be between 150,000 to 200,000 worldwide.
