Are all religions cults?

Without a doubt. That is why they are all bullshit.

The gods, wisdom and spiritual significance within all religions are 100 % worthy to pursue if so inclined, but the authority (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?4597-Who-is-the-true-authority) of the religions and the institutions are 0 % worthy to follow. IMO.

For example on Christmas Eve I was celebrating Jesus Christ and reading the Muslim Poet Rumi, and at the same time listening to the Hare Krisha mantra over and over again.
