It CAN be...

All religions have sects or fringe elements that bastardize the true meanings...

The difference is (usually) the amount of people in those fringes...

As a side note, Islam isn't "just" a religion...It's also a political form of government...

I agree. But that doesn't make Islam cult. That makes it a dangerous religious political system.

Islam, like Christianity is a faith. Religions like Catholicism or Baptists or Suni or Shea are organized reflections of that faith. Cults are outliers from that basic faith or accepted doctrines of the dominant religions.

I'll be unpopular for sayin' this but it's my strong belief Islam is an extreme cult.

First, no other religion has peeps who kill and commit acts of terrorism and violence in the name of of their god and religion. And it's not just a few isolated incidents. It's a common theme and encouraged.

However, the main reason it's a cult is their traditions, which are extreme to say the least. Look at how they treat women. It's hands-down the most degrading, evil, oppressive, and sadistic thing I've ever seen. They're basically property. Hell, dogs here in America are treated better. And no other religion has the traditions like Islam. All religions have traditions and "rules" to adhere to but Islam is so far over the top with it it's scary. They're like zombies.

I could go on and on in better detail but that's the overall gist.

Definition of cult for English Language Learners. : a small religious group that is not part of a larger and more accepted religion and that has beliefs regarded by many people as extreme or dangerous. : a situation in which people admire and care about something or someone very much or too much.

Note small. Islam is everything you say, and more, but they are not small.

I encourage people to watch a public stoning video. It will change the way you look at some muslims Sharia..etc... Nothing like seeing a large group of men cheering, laughing, and video taping something so barbaric.

Personally I would have cheered if a group of real men cut them all down with automatic weapons.

Um, all of the above sans the 5th. Islam is a cult by virtue of being a religion, but it's not a Cult like some fringe Kool-aid aficionado group, but it depends on your preferred definition, and obviously some abuse the faith to their own violent ends.

To clarify, you have to use the term "IN THIS DAY AND AGE"...

Before "The Enlightenment", many religions, including Christianity, did JUST that!...

Almost every other religion grew out of the this primitive stage...Islam (generalizing) is an exception...
