Do you realize how offensive it is to the Latter-day Saints to refer to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a cult? This is exactly what I meant when I said that there can be some resistance when the "examination" has a tone of conflict. As others have stated, however, this is not the place for this type of discussion, so I will politely withdraw. The discussion you seem to seek is readily available elsewhere and you have the links.
