Cult vs. Religion
Dean's World has a good article on what traits distance a cult from an established religion. Touches on Scientology and Islamofascism. It's true that by definition a major world relgion can fall under the category of "cult," but the word clearly has negative connotations, and is more commonly used by the first definition listed at "A religion or religious sect generally considered to be extremist or false, with its followers often living in an unconventional manner under the guidance of an authoritarian, charismatic leader."
