Request - Religions are Just Cults by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me Request - Religions are Just Cults by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me
This was a requested stamp.

If you think about it, it's basically true.

cult |kəlt|
a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object.
a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister.
a misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.

Only thing it doesn't fit is "small" so it's basically just a widespread, large cult.

I disagree.

From a religious standpoint, cults are groups of people who practice a form of a previously established religion that is not "green-lighted" by the original denomination.

An example would be the Christianity would technically be considered a cult in its very early stages, as it took the basic beliefs of Judaism but mixed it up and added new beliefs and the like. Everything but certain aspects of it is lined up with some other previously established faith. Also, cults are usually run by a few people or one person who is seen as the figurehead of the religion, and cults usually die off and dissipate when that leader either dies or is discredited. Christianity had Jesus, who died, but his followers "spread the word" so more people = working the kinks out of the new cult, so it became a religion.

Religion also can't be a cult because there are completely different faiths that have not been influenced by each other. In all sanity a Christian cannot call a Buddhist a member of a cult and vice versa because the faiths don't really match up at all when it comes to beliefs, values, and the central messages behind the faiths.. :/
