It could never be a cult.
A cult of what? Couch sitters?

In fact I would say the we are "Cult Proof".
Charlie Manson may have held sway over a bunch of impressionable suburban kids but if he tried his bush league psych out shit on a Dudeist he'd might as well piss into the wind. When helter skelter hits you can bet the dudeist's will be on a hill in a folding chair torching a J with a nice caucasian.

Laughable, man!

"Catherine Wessinger (Loyola University New Orleans) has stated that the word "cult" represents just as much prejudice and antagonism as racial slurs or derogatory words for women and homosexuals.[60] She has argued that it is important for people to become aware of the bigotry conveyed by the word, drawing attention to the way it dehumanises the group's members and their children.[60] Labeling a group as subhuman, she says, becomes a justification for violence against it.[60] At the same time, she adds, labeling a group a "cult" makes people feel safe, because the "violence associated with religion is split off from conventional religions, projected onto others, and imagined to involve only aberrant groups."[60] This fails to take into account that child abuse, sexual abuse, financial extortion and warfare have also been committed by believers of mainstream religions, but the pejorative "cult" stereotype makes it easier to avoid confronting this uncomfortable fact.[60]"

In all reality, dude, I considered him a dude by association even though he is of the Christian persuasion.  I've never harshed on him for his own personal beliefs, yet he continues to tread on mine.  To make things clearer, here is his own personal rant towards our beliefs:

Being a Dudeist is irrational. I dare even say hypocritical. The Dude himself would not be a Dudeist. Remember, he's damn near the laziest man in the world. It would require effort to become a member and then being a member would put boundaries inside of your mind about taking down boundaries. Dudes are dudes because they are without affiliation, without focus. What you have there in Dudeism is simply cult following.

It goes without saying that, as of this rant directed at the ethos, he is no longer considered a dude-by-association, but a mere acquaintance.  First question is, do I, as a dude, try to make him understand or keep him at acquaintance status until he is enlightened of his own accord.  Second question is have others dealt with this?

So this Christian told you your belief system is a cult...guess he didnt realize what the romans called his religion back in the 40s AD...

Dudes,

All is well. Cease the confusion, and frustration that follows it. The rug has not been peed on, I am currently at hand tempering functional battle ready full twang swords for our army of dudeists. It's the best we can do at current member capacity and donation returns. The armalites are currently on hold, however if you can manage to pray, or lazy someone to death and take theirs, more power to the dude. ABIDE!!!

By the way, I'll be going around to all the local universitys and selling them used Allman brothers albums, since last time when i tried to pitch dudeism on them with sandals, lounge chairs and thai stick; it failed so miserably. Turns out they already have all that stuff, one of them even offered me a burrito. I tried to brainwash one of them, but he made me play frisbee and gave me a burrito.

NEXT TIME I WILL STRIKE WITH FURY
You're damned if you dude, you're damned if you don't.

Have not been bothered since! ;D

Oh love getting a visit from those guys. Been about 5 years since they came by. Wonder if there is a way to get the routes they take in advance, rent a apartment or home on their way and set up a nice intervention party for them.
