    Satanists convince Rose Tree Media School District in Delaware County, Pennsylvania to alter dress code - 6abc Philadelphia

    They altered the verbiage in their school dress codes to remove language prohibiting anything "Satanic" or "cultish." It's clearly a Freedom of Religion issue, since they were singling out one religion while ostensibly allowing other religious symbols/clothing to be worn.

    I remember one Halloween, I decided to mess with my HR dept.

    One of the office administrators dressed up in a an ugly witch costume.

    I sent an email to HR saying this was very discrimatory to the Wicca religion. They actually reprimanded her for offensively characterizing a witch. She was really pissed at me for getting her in trouble.

    That's my go-to response to any time Satanists do things to defend civil rights. :)

    I mean it in all playful seriousness.

    I long ago discerned the real difference.
    A cult becomes a religion when it owns real estate.

    You and @KWED may both mean sects. A cult isn't defined by the number of members or property but how much of the BITE model applies to them.

    Too technical a model.
    As a former real estate broker, I favor my method.

    No, I meant "cult"
    Cult: A system of religious veneration and devotion directed towards a particular figure or object.
    A relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or as imposing excessive control over members.
    (OED)

    You are using 2 different ways of understanding the word cult.
