If a Marxist-Leninist refused to make an ally with an anarcho-communist, is this an example of sectarianism?
I'm just trying to understand what sectarianism is in relation to politics
@Walter B: You think Trotskyists are Marxist-Leninists? Or left-communists? What a joke.

-- Why do you combine communism with anarchy when the two do not mix together.
-- All communists are Marxist-Leninists and all Marxist-Leninists are communists. None are anarchists.

That would qualify, as these people usually have more in common than otherwise.
Think of it literally; when a major Church splits off the movement is often known as a cult or sect, depending on the size and degree to which the mother Chuch considers the rupture important. The difference between a sect and a movement could be the main Church calls them differently, because they're more lenient towards the view of the ''movement''. Sectarianism is the attitude. It's where you let small differences create a rift.
Since Marxist-Leninists and Anarcho-Communists probably have more in common than ground to disagree on, creating a rift out of the differences they do have would be a sectarian attitude.
