Default Re: What constitutes a cult?

Yeah - the thing that gets me though is I am a big reader, knowledge hunter etc on the tragedy at WACO.

Everyone likes to call them (the Branch Davidians) the religious cult. But to me a cult is like something of keeping to yourself, staying away from others etc however the Branch Davidians all had jobs in the local WACO Community, David Koresh on numerous occassions has the Sherriff at the commune for BBQ's, and all reports are that they were actually valued members of the community.

Apart from having someone think they were the second coming of christ nothing really jumped out to me as being cultish.

I guess thats why I started this thread to get others ideas of what constituted a cult.
