thank you for all responses. I still find it tough to believe so many bad stuff about Scientology. But if you see there is bad stuff about any large corporation..lets just say bank of america or wells fargo. you will find terrible reviews about them but people still do business with them and there are people who love them.
Just because there was a fiasco/crimes with Wells Fargo employees creating false accounts (for stats) does not make it a cult.
You might consider making a list of items that define what a cult is.
Then see if Wells Fargo fits, say, 90% of those items.
