    What is the worst CULT in the world?

    Which of the various NREs (New Religious Movements) around today are the very worst in terms of their effect on people's minds and souls?

    Some people say the Church of Mormon or Later Day Saints is a cult - or, at least, the more extreme offshoots that promote polygamy and strange, science fiction Apocalyptic thinking - but they're big and wide-spread enough now that I don't think they should count.

    So what do I mean by a CULT? I mean a group that is exclusive, limiting membership to select individuals who are chosen according to specifications that are kept secret from the public. That would include groups like the Moonies (Unification Church), Aum Shinrikyo (Japanese Death Cult), the Family of God (pedophile cult of David Berg), L. Ron Hubbard's Dianetics-based Church of Scientology (which charges outrageous fees for climbing up "the ladder to total freedom") and the occult tinged Solar Temple, which saw groups in the Swiss Alps and in Montreal die in mass suicides around the turn of the millennium.

    Which of these cults has had the most damaging impact on society at large? And which poses the biggest threat, currently?

    I have my opinions, but I'd love to see yours!

    First: Atheism
    Second: Islam

    Both cults justify mass murder to convert the world. Atheism is worse since they have murdered far more than any other.

    But if forced to live under one or the other, I guess I'd prefer an Atheistic society. Thank GOD that'll never happen.

    Well. That's an opinion, I guess.

    Not a good one. Certainly not a correct one. But it's an opinion.

    Everybody has the right to their own opinion, but not all opinions are created equal.

    Cult is a mere word with no meaning in this world unless there is a religion and there are people who give up lives for that religion. So the word cult would merely be of anything only to those atrocious being who care about religion more than life.

    I would put the top 3 in no particular order as...

    Christians
    Muslims
    Jews

    Eliminate the war and death caused by those 3 and the world would have been a lot better place.

    Could be there is only one God, and He (It) is so demanding (apparently) that no one wants to obey Him (it). So we have war after war, some more deadly than the last, some more fatal than expected, some to end all wars. If only the first humans and done it right, and obeyed the Lord God. Then, we would have no wars, and maybe eternal bliss.

    It could be argued that even the few main different branches of Christianity are just big cults, but besides that, I would say that the former Heaven's Gate UFO-Apocalypse cult is the worst in history, with leader Marshall Applewhite.

    The majority of them died in 1997 in a mass suicide. Pity for the innocents that were led to their death that madman.

    None of these three compare to the Countries of the world. Do away with Countries attacking Countries and you would do away with far more killing than eliminating all three of those "religions" or associations. Maybe, the greatest Cult is Countries.

    One of these days soon most wars may cease to exist. It sure seems things are less tumultuous now than what we know of in days gone by.

    Looks like the prophecy of Isaiah -about how God is going to heal the world through the Good News that "Jesus" SuperStar brought us -is coming true.

    There has never been a time in the history of the world where so many people were living so harmoniously. Still gotta few kinks, but they are being straightened as we speak.

    Do you think Al Qaeda could be considered a cult? The reason the do all the evil things they do is because of a religious reason.

    Re: What is the worst CULT in the world?

    Al Queda has religion based inside it, but I think the majority of the premise and basis of a cult is religion or an insight to a higher power.

    Al Queda has elements of being a cult, but in my opinion its like the mafia, or a gang, or club.

    If anyone has valid points, I'm open to info.

    Re: What is the worst CULT in the world?

    I have to say Christianity is the worst cult in the world. Think about it for a second. How many people have been killed in the name of Christianity. I was raised in a Baptist church growing up and let me tell you that were some of the most ugly and judgmental people I've ever met.

    While there are different branches of Christianity none seem really better than the other as they all frown upon free thinking and rely on a book contaminated by lies to fear and control people.

    Awesome answer. I really agree with you. Islam and Judaism are really bad too. Buddhism is one of the few that I can think of that is actually decent when it comes to the death of others.

    Re: What is the worst CULT in the world?

    Catholicism for me is the Biggest Cult of all. It is a mixture of beliefs which doesn't even exist in the Bible which should be the basis of Christianity. I believe all other forms of religion including Alcoholism, Drug Addictions, Satanism, Pornography, Atheism, Agnosticism, Buddhism, Islam, Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Paganism, Hinduism, Occultism, Witchcraft and all the rest are all cults which join Catholicism since they are all the same.

    No offense, but that first sentence was the only one that made any sense. Alcoholism is a cult? Pornography? And they all join Catholicism in the end?

    Personally, I lean towards Catholicism too, but I don't really want to be lumped into the same category as you. You went off on a tangent I just can't see.
