There are different spins on the definition for the word, some being negative. When you think of a cult, do you think of them being dangerous?
I was thinking of the Amish, and while they're peaceful and harmless, they resemble a cult in so many ways. Either you're completely in, or you're completely out. There is rarely a gray area with them, and they are quite unconventional.
Any religions or groups that come to mind as a cult to you?

When I hear cult I think don't drink the koolaid.I remember growing up hearing about extremist cults with mass suicides and the leaders screwing all the young girls.So while I know there are many definitions the one that sticks in my mind is the worst one. On the other side of that though I do not view any religions that I know of today as a cult. I think the closest we have today is Westboro, but even they do not fit the extreme definition that I have in my head.
