I’m been calling them “those who worship him” since 2008. And that is the case. His “followers” truly worship him. I know some of them. I don’t hang around them anymore for obvious reasons. Mainly I don’t like to be around evil.
I have family members who are, as you say, followers of him, and I have not cut them out of my life but I do not communicate with them as much...when they ask why I am not on skype as much or FB I just tell them I have too much work to do and don’t have time or am just too tired at the end of the work day to deal with email, skype etc. Heck, two live in very nice interesting places overseas but I have no interest in travelling there now just to witness them gloat and tell me how wonderful socialism is in the countries in which they now live and behave as if I should love it too.
