Default Re: Newtmentum! (David Weigel & Chris Moody)

As was pointed out, I was addressing the "morality" issue rather than the doctrinal issue. On the other hand, I fail to see how "doctrine" can actually be separated from people in positions of power in the church telling other people to cover something up and then they follow those commands. Sounds like official policy to me.

Maybe I'll take a different approach. The first "sign" of being a cult in the link above is that the LDS church has an ultimate leader who can dictate commands from God. The only other Western religion that exists with this property is Catholicism. In fact, the entire structure and hierarchy of the two systems is almost identical. In that sense I'd say that Mormonism and Catholicism are the most closely related rather than the least.
