Through the Desert in a Cult with No Name… Cover Story
To former members and those who encounter this cult, they are known by a variety of nicknames: 2X2s (two-by-twos), Cooneyites, Irvinites, Dippers, Go-Preachers, the Tramps and the No-Names. It is the very anonymity and simplicity of the No-Names that enables their cult to grow largely undetected, like termites in a home, noticed only when the damage is too costly to ignore.
