I think the term "cult" is totally subjective and its pretty much impossible to draw the line in any clear way. Yet I also belive there are such
things as "cults." It's sort of like trying to define a word like "chilly" or "humid." People are all going to pick different temperatures at
which they see the cut-off point. But that doesn't mean we can't use these words, either.
I think within any religious movement, there are going to be some people who are more fanatical than others. One member of a group may bring a
deranged, "cult-like" atmosphere to his practice, while another member of the same group might relate to the whole experience in a completely
innocent, healthy manner.
