To belong to Piecemakers, one must surrender all possessions to the organization, submit to the authority of Marie Kolaniski, live in the commune, work at the craft shop, forego sex, and subscribe to their ridiculous beliefs. According to the OC Weekly, the Piecemakers have some questionable beliefs:
- To become a cop, lawyer or judge, a person would first have to spend "three months or more" in jail "to understand how awesome is his job."
- No more taxpayer-funded inaugural parties for incoming presidents.
- The U.S. must apologize to the world for its "arrogance."
- No more pampering of the handicapped with choice parking spaces -- "walking is one form of therapy."
- No more welfare programs.
- Open national borders because "it isn't the Mexicans or the Asians screwing up the country but the offspring of the Caucasians who founded this country -- white-skinned, empty-headed with an evil heart."
- Only one religion allowed -- "all others would have to leave the country."
- A ban on aid to Israel.
- No more "foolish" government AIDS research.
I rarely find any organization so completely screwed up and just plain scary. These people are nuts – no, nuts who sell quilts and plot the overthrow of our government. I hereby add them to my Nutballs hall of fame. I also intend to watch them closely.
