One of the Forum regulars warns that Tulsi Gabbard is a member of a religious cult. Looking at the “cult’s” web site (linked above) I find little to be concerned about.
Hinduism is one of the world’s great religions. On that basis alone it is unrealistic to describe Hindus as members of a cult. On the contrary, a practicing Hindu is on a par with a practicing Christian, or Jew, or Muslim.
I’m inclined to tolerate the faiths of people of faith, even in political contexts. I’m even OK with lawmakers crafting laws in accordance with their religious beliefs so long as those laws do not cause harm or infringe the natural rights and liberties of the people in the society where they are enacted.
My own warning would be that smearing Gabbard as a cult member is an insidious thing to do, about the same as ducking Pungo’s Grace Sherwood for witchcraft.
