#11 Fundamentalist Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints
Whether Mormonism is a cult or not remains hotly in debate. However, Warren Jeff's who lead the arm of the Fundamentalist Church of Christ is now in prison for various crimes against the women and children in his congregation. The charges include sexual abuse and physical abuse of minors. For purposes of this comment it is important to draw a line between Mormonism as a whole and this particular branch or cult of Mormonism. Polygamy was also a bone of contention with US authorities when investigating the cult. Many would argue that Hari Krishna is not a cult. If one exams their basic way of functioning it does appear to have cult like characteristics. They isolate you from normal society, they encourage you to cut off contact with friends and family and they also demand half of your pay-check and assets. They preach that money is bad but they seem happy enough to take yours.
