birtherjoeA, Don't believe everything you read on the net. Many of us are good and decent people, and the majority of us are trying to improve our lives. Now, I will be the first tell you that I do believe some odd things, but I live a honest, sober, drug free, hard-working, Christian, monogamus life. I am teaching my kids to live that same way. Maybe there is a correlation between what I believe and how I live and maybe there is not. But, you will eventually have to come to terms with the fact that on a moral scale - us "cultist mormons" are a more moral group as a whole than nearly every groups who chooses to call us that. In Matthew chapter 7:18, the Lord would be suggesting that if the Mormons are a cult, they are not an evil one

Dar, I personally am happy with whatever you believe, as long as you don't hurt anybody, like that Evangelical pastor who wants to put homosexuals in elecric cages and kill them off)

My point was that TH wants to get everybody boiling by insisting that Bill Maher is the only person alive who thinks Mormonism is a cult, and that conservatives would never say such a thing. My examples proved otherwise.

You do believe your Saviour, do you not? Or do you prefer to believe the "personal comment by a Town Hall blogger"?

For me, I see it as a one-sided slander/libel from someone who had bad experiences. I really can not see an Outside Special Authoritative Unit backing off, if everything else he said was the unbiased truth - so I have to discount the believableness of the rest of the story. Common sense? Yeah, sorry.

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...
