Christians calling other denominations a "cult"?

Is it more funny or sad?

And what of some of them calling other denominations "not christian at all"?

Try telling them that.

Update:

"Both at the same time." Thank you.

Its hilarious!

    By using the term “cult” some Christians are trying to sneak in the negative connotation of the word in order to stir the emotions without really knowing its true meaning. Usually because their own argument is shaky so they revert to this tactic as a form of defence. Bit sad really.

    my idea of a cult is when they dont let you leave without some fierce arguments. ive heard

    J witnesses have some goofy restrictions against leaving their group, i know amish cant see their families anymore if they leave i recently watched some scary stuff about scientology

    and i know from experience that the AMWAY company gets real vexed when you want out.

    so thats what i think a cult is (oh and some motorcycle clubs)

    as far as being christian, if your group beleives Christ is the reincarnation of anyone like satan's younger brother ,than it is not true christian

    They are cults, how can Islam be called anything else?

    When there religious leaders call for purification of there faith, by beheading infidels, do you think that will stop the average Muslim?

    If the pope would call crap like that, the church would loose more followers and achieve its own annihilation.

    Mostly I find it sad, but not because they're being mean -

    rather because they don't see the hypocrisy. When one

    cannot see hypocrisy within themselves it's really rather sad.

    However, there are those moments I find it highly amusing, too,

    (and I'm so middle-of-the-road sometimes, I disgust myself)
