Los Caballeros Templarios is a major drug cult in Mexico that, unknown to most people, owes its existence and sustenance directly to the American Evangelical Protestant writer John Eldridge, something which we have written about before. The cult has engaged in not just drug trafficking, but human sacrifice, organ trafficking, and mass murder throughout Mexico.
