    YES! Freedom of religion and freedom FROM religion.

    The definition of a destructive religious cult is like alcoholism-if booze controls you instead of the other way around you are an alcoholic.
    The Watchtower society Jehovah’s Witnesses as an example is not benevolent and won’t let you leave their organization in peace.
    If they try to ruin your reputation and break up your family for trying to get out then they are a cult!
    Whenever you surrender your logic and reason to anyone who asks you to trust them because they know better and to please donate generously, it’s a cult. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck….

    I’d just like to point out that the tenets of many mainstream religions are very intolerant to competing religions and different mindsets. There are several instances in the King James Bible where murder of atheists, women, children, and homosexuals is called for.

    Perhaps non-believers are emotional about these issues because Christians, Muslims, and Jews would kill them if they completely believed what they claim to believe.
