Is Kemetics a cult? Bad or good? How to classify myself?
« on: April 05, 2015, 01:12:04 am »
Hi there,

I am posting here because I am still fairly new to the Kemetic pantheon but I am not sure how to classify myself yet. I have beliefs in Bast and Anubis. I have a shrine set up for them, but I also have a bit of northern Canada aboriginal beliefs. Such as spirit guides. So I guess my question is: How can I classify myself without others being mad? I have some people whom I know who say it's a cult. ( on a side note, I have been on the board for a while. I just haven't posted lately)

Thanks, Northernangel Nimya :confused:

I don't know of a way of fixing people being upset about someone's religious identification other than "Spend time with better people", unfortunately.

Are you part of some sort of structured organisation?  If the answer is no, then it is literally impossible for you to be part of a cult.

If the answer is yes, one possible thing you can do is run the Bonewits cult evaluation guide thing on what you know about the organisation and decide for yourself:  http://www.neopagan.net/ABCDEF.html
