Mega Obama Donor Bill Maher: Yeah, Mormonism's a "Cult"

Well, yes. If you are a mainline, historical Christian, yes, Mormonism is a cult and always has been. BUT, remember that Jews view Christians as a cult, from their perspective. Similarly, Muslims have their divisions--Shiite and Sunni and they view each other that way too. We associate the word "cult" too closely to Jim Jones and other radicals, rather than what it is. Again, from an orthodox, biblical understanding of the Trinitiy, Jesus, the addition of multiple other "sacred" texts (Book of Mormon, Doctrines and Covenants and Pearl of Great Price) the Mormons are most definitely a cult from a Christian perspective.

Chris-I really don't care how someone like Bill Maher views any religion.

Maher's brand of bile is more overt than the preferred approach of his fellow media lefties, but subtlety was never Bill's modus operandi.  Via Twitter:
 

RT @billmaher: Why even listen to on foreign policy? His entire FP experience is 2 yrs trying to brow-beat Frenchmen into joining his cult


Quick reactions:

(1) Some liberals are already saying that because Maher is a militant, aggressive atheist, he views all religions as cults.  Has he called Barack Obama's Trinity United Church of Christ a "cult"?  I can't seem...
