My State is Doomed, Part 2

Ron Ramsey, the Lt. Governor of Tennessee and candidate for Governor, has stated that Islam may be more of a cult than a religion, and therefore not subject to protection under the 1st Amendment. Fine, Mr. Ramsey. You tell me exactly how to define a cult vs. religion, and we'll discuss whether your particular beliefs deserve protection.

We are doomed (again).

  1. Since there actually is a sociologically defined distinction of "cult" as opposed to just "religion," I'd suggest delving a little deeper into that. Some factions of Islam fall into it and some don't, just as with Christianity.
