Cults

There doesn't seem to be a firm definition of "cult" but it is easy to find information. Here is one paragraph from a website that describes some cults.
Answers.org

Sociological, psychological, and journalistic observations sometimes show us the human dynamics that frequently result from a cult belief system, but they are not sufficient Christian foundations for determining a groups status as a cult. For example, a cult's unique doctrines can lead to an exclusivism and separateness from other religious groups. A cult's belief that the Bible's revelation is superceded by the current revelations of the cult leader may result in followers surrendering their thinking and decision making abilities to the cult leader. And the more aberrant a cult's beliefs and practices, the more likely it is to be characterized as bizarre.

Tom Cruise is in the news today. Scientology succeeded in getting the video removed from youtube. Here is a copy of the video that the news is using in their reporting. He sounds like he's smoked too much dope.

The video the Church of Scientology doesn't want you to see


There's some stuff that may be of interest over here at Operation Clambake.
