    Perhaps even more importantly (she can answer this) is the pigheadedness and conduct of some of the Mormon "apologists" we had back then -- NRAJeff, Other Cheek, LDSTrue, Jo151363726543161176274, and others.

    (It may take her a while to respond, as she's just moved back to start another semester of school.)

    I'd say one of the red flags of a cult is if they don't allow questions. The truth has nothing to fear and everything to gain by questions and the search for knowledge. So, something fishy is going on if someone claims that any questions are evil.

    Hypothetical conversation between me(cbw) and a potential cult leader(let's call him Bob).

    Bob: My group is the only way one can be saved. It is the one true chrch.

    CBW: Really? Why do you think that?

    Bob: Because! Now stop asking stupid questions and just believe. Questions are of the devil!

    CBW: Really? Prove it.

    Bob: You are arrogant and must repent!

    CBW: You seem like a cult leader to me...

    Bob: Oh no! I'm not a cult leader. It's just that everyone else got it wrong! I am the only one that got it right!

    CBW: There's plenty other people just you...
    If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

    Well, when I peek at different forums on the net, they've become pretty boring. The Mormons seldom give genuine answers.

    When we had some hot debates going, I always tried to use Mormon sources to refute the 'apologists', and was often amused at the clumsy "dog ate my homework" answers and explanations found on FairMormon.org.

    I especially enjoyed the occasional warning to Mormons "not to read further, as it may be damaging to your faith".
