In case you're interested :
Yesterday, a Belgian parlementary commision has proposed an official list containing the names of 189 religious groups that - according to the commision - can be labeled as being "cults". Scientology is one of them, but I haven't seen the full list yet. A special task force will be put in place to monitor all these groups.
Belgian church and the flemish extreme right were appaled by the findings of the commision.
So, whatever the difference between "religion" and "cult" would be, it seems that over here we now have an official distinction between the two.
