Even then, not all cults are bad, they have more of a bad reputation than they deserve, as you have pointed out to great effect they are erywhere around us, its religious cults that are the real concern.

BTW do you consider SPCR a cult, why or why not? Yes to a certain degree, numbers 3, and 4 apply, but the rest dont at all. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/cult Number 2 doesn't apply? How many points does a religion or cult need to score before it is rationally feared? Do you have a rationa...

During the Middle Ages several European Catholic 'theocracies' set out openly and zealously to conquer as much of the world as they could and forcibly convert the natives of those countries to Christianity whilst at the same time robbing them of their treasure. And look how badly that's turned out,...

My answer is that people will continue to go to the existing ones, and when they are jam packed they would simply stay at home, and watch their sports, have friends round and drink beer. So if it will change nothing, why do it in the first place? As I have pointed out a few times people are (rightf...

Also: religion (via the brainwashed masses) like to change laws (often legally via a vote) to discriminate against others because of their religion.
