Cult in of itself isn't a bad word. It's the usage of it that causes the problem. We often used it in our studies at the University of Cape Town along with referring to religious beliefs as myths. Unfortunately not everyone understands this frame of reference.
lol - I was just thinking of Joseph Campbell when I was reading this thread. I believe he was the one who mentioned this. "If I believe it, it's a religion. If you believe it, it's a myth." So yeah, it's definitely all about references and usages.
