I think Harris is on the wrong track here.

If your point is that phrasing your communications carefully will get them better accepted, then accusing those who do not understand or agree with you of being a "cult" undermines your message and your point. Obviously you are not someone who is an expert in effective communication.

Does Harris really think that someone could criticise "religious metaphysics and superstition" and "faith-based thinking" and not be instantly categorised as an atheist?
