    Cult is now the worst of the four letter "C" words to me... My disdain for dubdom is ever growing...

    Hmm... I almost want to delete my previous post, 'cause I found this page:

    Food for thought.

    Yes, and the only difference between jws and other cults like Waco, Jonestown, etc. is that the jws follow a group of men (the gb), while the others follow individual men (David Koresh, Jim Jones, etc).

    Yes, it's a cult. It follows all the guidelines of a high-control group.

    It's most interesting that some are either not convinced "cult" is proper for JWs or that at least they are uncomfortable with the label. To me, they are as much a cult as the Scientologists or Hare Krishnas. (sp)...Of course I believe the Roman Catholic Church is one of the most cultic groups I've seen.

    Yes JW's are a CULT. Fear and Control!

    Like you, Minimus, I thought they were not a cult. My position was that they were a high control group.

    I've since changed my mind, and am quite comfortable calling them a cult. 100% cult. Absolutely.

    Is the difference limited to an emotional response, or would you point to a definitional difference between the two (cult/hcg)?
