CONNECTICUT – A Connecticut family has filed a lawsuit claiming a public school district, a trio of high school teachers and others engaged in a “predatory religious indoctrination” that left their daughters speaking a “bizarre new language.”

The family claims the alleged cult promoted martyrdom and celebrated death.

The suit also claims the teens experienced fantasies of suicidal ideation and began speaking in a bizarre new language.

Wellesley college is also named as a defendant for its alleged role in allowing the teachers and guidance counselor to maintain contact with the girls after high school.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and changes in school policy.
