I ve seen an american chanel and i saw an interview of an american family....they had a very big problem in their family, they lost his son because of the sect, they were the members of this sect.

I think sects it is a problem in our world...I agree that all have they own choice, but if your choice it is bad for other people it is not good i think.

Your right, it's a real problem but there is so many other problems then we didn't take attention to it.Many movie have shown how a sect enroll you and take control over you.Some are fanatic and do collective suicide , you remember I think it was during the 1990 years somewhere in Europ many people have die in winter for the soltice.Sect can go very far ,death and children abuse and many other things .

If the sects is consensual, I don't have a problem with it. Personally, I like sects and with proper precautions it can be enjoyed by all.

Maybe we should define the difference between a sect and a cult.

Main Entry: sect
Pronunciation: 'sekt
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English secte, from Middle French & Late Latin & Latin; Middle French, group, sect, from Late Latin secta organized ecclesiastical body, from Latin, course of action, way of life, probably from sectari to pursue, frequentative of sequi to follow -- more at SUE
1 a : a dissenting or schismatic religious body; especially : one regarded as extreme or heretical b : a religious denomination
2 archaic : SEX 1
3 a : a group adhering to a distinctive doctrine or to a leader b : PARTY c : FACTION

Main Entry: cult
Pronunciation: 'k<
Function: noun
Usage: often attributive
Etymology: French & Latin; French culte, from Latin cultus care, adoration, from colere to cultivate -- more at WHEEL
1 : formal religious veneration : WORSHIP
2 : a system of religious beliefs and ritual; also : its body of adherents
3 : a religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also : its body of adherents
4 : a system for the cure of disease based on dogma set forth by its promulgator
5 a : great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work (as a film or book); especially : such devotion regarded as a literary or intellectual fad b : a usually small group of people characterized by such devotion

(both from the Meriam-Webster Dictionary)

Generally, when one considers a sect, definition #3 comes to mind.
For a cult, definition # 5 is most common.
