In that year the brothers Z.W. Leene and J. Leene... formed a Dutch branch of Max Heindel's Rosicrucian Fellowship. In 1930 Mrs H. Stok-Huyser... joined the two brothers. Together they undertook a spiritual quest which led to a growing estrangement with the US-based Rosicurcian Fellowship and in 1935 they severed links with the Fellowship altogether. The three spiritual leaders then formed a new body which became known as the Rosicrucian Society. Later, after World war II when its activities had begun to spread all over the world, it adopted the name Lectorium Rosicrucianum. "

Yet several left-wing extremist groups advocate different, though equally radical positions. As the civil rights movement gained momentum in the late 1950s through the 1960s and was joined by the anti-Vietnam movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s, left-wing extremism flourished. The diverse groups included the Weather Underground, which was the violent arm of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), whose goal was to halt the 'imperialism' of the U.S., seize power, and create a socialist society; the Black Panthers, which sought cultural nationalism for the Amerian blaks; and the Black Liberation Army, a paramilitary group seeking a separate black state. These organizations attracted individuals who were frustrated by government policies and by the slow pace of social change. "

Left wing extremism, for the most part subsided by the 1980s. One very vocal left-wing extremist who is still rousing thousands of supporters, though is... Louis Farrakhan "

Black Guerrilla Family... African People's Socialist Party (APSP)... May 19th Communist Organization... John Brown Anti-Klan Committee (JBAKC)... Revolutionary Fighting Group, The Armed Resistance Unit, The United Freedom Front, The Red Guerrilla Resistance... FALN--Puerto Rican National Liberation Armed Forces... Omega 7... For most of these groups, the U.S. government is the imperialist enemy, and prisoners are considered 'prisoners of war.' Although responsible for scattered bombings, left-wing groups for the most part have been minimally active in recent years, probably because most leaders and the more violent members are now in jail. All the groups actively recruit new members. "

Dean Bekken [bekkende@spawar.navy.mil] The Liberal Catholic Church International's (hereinafter called Group A) American Province is officially called the "Liberal Catholic Church. " That is the result of court ruling in California in the 1950's. In the rest of the Western Hemisphere it is called the Liberal Catholic Church International. In the Eastern Hemisphere, it is sometimes called the International Liberal Catholic Church.

The "Liberal Catholic Church, Province of the United States of America " is the American Province of the body known elsewhere in the world as the "Liberal Catholic Church " (hereinafter called Group B). What happened is that the Group B sued Group A in California, claiming that Group B was the LCC--but the Superior Court ruled that Group A was the LCC.

Then Group B went to Maryland and incorporated as the "Liberal Catholic Church, Province of the United States of America. "
