While you dumb Americans do love your cults don't you?

See the Jonestown Massacre and Jim Jones.

Also Waco Texas and David Koresh.

Also the Mormons and Scientologists LOL? Need I say more?

I don't agree with the Catholic church, I don't think it represents Christianity in a particularly good light. However considering how much nutty religious movements have come from America, I don't think Americans can have any authority on the matter....

Although the incident at Waco was the American government (ATF, FBI etc) going over the top and harrassing a small religious community until it drove them over the edge. Also many of the 23 childrens bodys that were recovered after the attack on the compound and resulting fire (76 church members killed) show the effects of excessive CS gas use against them as their corpses show much evidence of spasms etc prior to death.

Of all the religious groups you mentioned, I think the Mormons don't deserve the title of "cult".

The Church of Latter Day Saints is a mainstream religion which has widely gained acceptance worldwide. I believe there are as many Mormons as Jews in the world.

Their dogma, which is ridiculed by critics, doesn't appear to be so different from Christianity. If one mocks the revelations, the miracles and the beliefs of Joseph Smith, he should apply the same rules to Christianity itself based on revelations, divine inspirations, etc...

Christians have really no business criticising the Mormons.

Waco was mostly the work of David Koresh; an individual who had gained spiritual power over a group of gullible people, and used them against federal authorities.

There were strange going on in this community, and that's why Koresh didn't want the compound to be inspected. I can't see why it's the business of "God fearing" folks to arm themselves to the teeth and them resist authority.

Koresh was wrong no doubt. Why didn't the ATF arrest him when he was on his morning jog? Or when he was shopping in Waco town? Instead of going in all guns blazing in February 1993 trying to raid the place. These people were already being told they were living in the end times and that America and its government were the ''Babylon'' mentioned in the Book Of Revelation. Surely a different approach was merited considering the circumstances? They could have arrested Koresh when he was out buying some milk.

At least there is aspects of Christianity and Judaism that are backed up by contemporary historical accounts. I'm not talking about miracles and the likes of that. Smith wrote about large towers when archaeology has never unearthed the slightest evidence of such things. He also claimed that white people were in America thousands of years ago. When there is no genetic evidence to suggest otherwise. He claimed that Native Americans are one of the lost tribes of Israel, genetics would suggest otherwise.

Smith claimed he unearthed golden plates from the ground, translated them, then an angel took them away. Fair enough. Years later some people made fake golden plates, gave them to Smith, he translated them. Need I say more?

I have no problem with people being Mormons its their choice at the end of the day, but it must be also open to criticism, as should all religious movements.

The problem was that the ATF got shot at when they tried to enter the compound. That wasn't a smart move.
From then on, an full scale assault was on the cards.
By how people can get so brainwashed by a preacher, is what I cannot understand.

The ''Babylonians'' had brought an army to the compound. Why couldn't a couple of nice fellows in suits have just gone and knocked on the door with warrants? Instead of dozens of heavily armed men in swat gear jumping out of cattle trailers. Typical OTT American nonsense.

I don't quite know either, a few Brits were also killed in the compound. The harrassment leading upto the FBI raid did little to give assurances to the people, and watching the videos they sent out of the compound they seemed like decent ordinary people with perhaps some questionable religious views thats all.

If you are going to examine the LDS Church, you will find that most of its dogma is common with Christianity, plus some North American bits added.

Now, if you want to say the story doesn't add up, well, maybe. But look ar Christian beliefs first, no less unbelievable.

A God in 3 parts being one? An immaculate conception? A virgin birth? Water transformed into wine? Jesus walking on water? The Nile splitting in 2 to let the Jews escape from Egypt? Miraculous cures? Death and resurrection? Bodily ascension to heaven? Angels?

Really, that doesn't seem more plausible than many myths perpetrated by the Mormons.

As a group,even if looked with suspicion, the Mormons never did harm in the same scale Christianity did through its history.
Sure, they are a close-knit society with singular practices, but no more than the Jews, for example.
