You do realize that in my OP there was absolutely no mention of religion. Silver Thong asked if America was ready for a mormon Prez and I replied I'd take a mormon over a BLT any day. Now, in what way does that show how I think?
And again you bring up ethnicity as a basis for your vote but this time use an acronym. Some are simply not voting for a party full of racists that think similarly to the way you have by making ethnicity the basis for their vote. We know that is why some do not like our President. Get over it, your own grandchildren will judge you or be judged by others themselves.
To be fair, from an anthropological perspective, ALL religions are defined as cults as they are organizations for the conduct of ritual, magical, or other religious observances.
To be fair, it is not a cult using a sociological definition.
Also when others call Mormonism a cult they do it in a disparaging manner as if it is acceptable still to disparage the beliefs of others. It is not.
To be sure, it is still done, people still put down others or dislike others on the basis of religion or ethnicity, but everyone else can see these are backward ideas. Unsure why anyone would want to defend the claim that Mormons are a cult, it is a sickening charge, it has no place in modern political discourse, and to claim technically that they are a cult because of an anthropological definition is just as equally backward.
