  • Certain cults should be put on a watch list, and made illegal if they routinely break laws.

    Religions of all sorts can be twisted into making followers do unspeakable things in the name of faith. This is even more true with cults. It can be argued that ISIS is a religious cult. Any 'cult' should put on a watch list, warned, and then if they don't comply with U.N. regulations they must be declared war upon by the U.S. govt. (regardless of where they exist in the world) and then their members should be fire bombed with drones. Then the local govt. Will be so 'grateful' that of course they will be willing to trade crude oil with the U.S. at affordable prices... Or else the U.S. will allow cults like ISIS to rise up and overpower their weak (U.S. Trained) security forces and behead people. Interestingly, such cults only rise up in areas that have resources the U.S. needs, which is quite convenient. ;) God Bless America. Allah (peace be upon Him) sure has.

  • There should be laws against cults

    I think that although difficult it would be possible
    To draft laws as cults have certain traits that do not exist
    In main stream religions. There would be a need to consult various experts in the field and peoples personal experiences as well. This would help to see standard practices that all cults seem to posess.

  • There should be laws against Cults.

    There should be laws against cults because most of these groups are exclusive to those who behave in a certain way or support a certain cause. However, in most cases cults are very negative and support a negative behavior. They are not like a book reading club or little league team. Therefore, I say yes. It gets rid of letting negativity congregate.

  • We need to set up laws against such groups.

    There should be laws against cults for sure. There are a lot of activities cults take part in that are dangerous to life. They sometimes kill, cannibalize, hurt animals, set fires, and separate vulnerable people from their families. Having laws against such groups should limit their ability to take part in illegal activities.

  • Practice what you want

    No, I do not think that their should be any laws that say you can not have a cult, because we have the right to practice any religion that we want here in America. When a cult becomes a problem, is when they are doing something illegal inside their system.

  • It's A Slippery Slope Problem

    I do not believe there should laws against cults, but I would assume there are other ways to protect against this problem. I believe laws should be avoided because it causes a slippery slope problem where the laws could also be seen as a way to inhibit religious freedom and in some situations religious persecution.

  • Censorship is a slippery slope

    It's very easy to say "this is abhorrent" we must ban it! It's a lot less easy to put that genie back in the bottle. Enacting laws to deal with an outlier only ensures that those laws will be used more broadly later against other groups with unintended consequences. We must be vigilant against allowing our liberty to be eroded to placate some peoples inability to handle messages they disapprove of.
