Honestly I saw no difference between this and any christian denomination in regards to tom foolery. I love telling this joke.
What's the difference between religion and a cult?
A hundred years.
If people think Mormonism is a cult, then put yourself in a non-christian mind 150 years after Christ died. You hear about this new belief of eating the body and drinking the blood of some old dude. Seems pretty crazy. Flash forward a few years and kids stand in line for that shit!
