There are a few peaceful current “cults” that a rather peaceful. The quakers, amish, mennonites somewhat. But anytime one preaches peace and compassion one must keep a picture of John Wesley on hand as a reminder how quickly that turns to shit.

Meh, the Amish aren't terribly nice to animals.  They run a crap load of puppy mills in PA.  My late rescue poodle was a breeder for them. When she wasn't of any use to them, they just got rid of her.  Then there's the rape stuff.

Captain Renault : What in heaven's name brought you to Casablanca?

Rick : My health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.

Captain Renault : The waters? What waters? We're in the desert.

Rick : I was misinformed.

Usually this would go under Christianity.

I never heard about this before.  Disturbing.

Just when I was almost willing to give a sect a grudging pass, I read about the puppy mills these fuckers have!  And then other stuff came out.  Organized religion, with no exceptions, (that I am aware of) is evil and damaging. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?<br />Then he is not omnipotent,<br />Is he able but not willing?<br />Then whence cometh evil?<br />Is he neither able or willing?<br />Then why call him god?

Atheists commit immorality and crimes too.  You should damn them every day ;-)

I always got a long with the Amish.  I've done business with them.  They seemed the least offensive of the religions around me, but they do have their detractors, mostly from other Christian sects.  I just expected more from the Amish.

Their problems with women and with dissidents are noted.  And of course they have the same percentage of criminals as any other group.
