Not sure I have close friends who are Mormon and it doesn't seem cultish to me.

I think its due to the secretiveness about temple rituals and the very tight-knit insular family aspect of it.

the reason its "secretive" is because its sacred. 

were taught that family is the most important thing you have your family for eternity and you should be open and very close with them

Never heard that it was until cm. Sorry that people can be so judgmental and rude. You know the truth about your faith :-)

cuz of sister wives? lol

the mormon church has 2 churches that are "spin off" in a sense.  they follow one of the 2 churches that still practices polygamy. note in one episode they took a trip to a temple and werent allowed in because the main mormon church doesnt practice polygamy anymore

Uhhhh.... Bump?

I dunno if I'd call it a cult but it is not for me. That doesn't mean I'd put mormons or the religion in general down.

I'm not trying to argue, I am just pointing out that secretive rituals and insular family/church communities gives off a cultish vibe. Regardless of any perfectly valid explanations for them.
