The Pat Robertson (and more broadly, evangelical) variant of Christianity is closest to the written accounts of their ur-text.
There's little question in my mind. The Judeo-Christian Bible turns the susceptible into crazy people. I suggest we preserve a few copies in the reference library.
Cults are indistinguishable from first generation religions. If Crowley, Blatvatsky, or Hubbard had something promising to say to the masses (ie: reconciling oneself to the perceived injustices of the world, or offering consolations and solace of maternal figures like Guanyin or Mary) their cults might have made a smooth transition. Alas, history is littered with failed cults.
Cults vs. Religion are pretty much a Pirates vs. Emperors thing. Your legitimacy amongst the populace is dependent on your size, not the morality/rationality of what you say/do/believe.
Dude, if I were a satanic wizard, I'd TOTALLY enchant some guns. They'd work like voodoo dolls, but with bullets instead of pins.

Remember when it was always tabloid stories about satanic toasters?
They need to make a prank toaster that has a secondary heating element. Every tenth slice (plus or minus 1-5, just so it's not consistent) gets a pentagram burned into it. I have several relatives that would have a major-league freak-out over something like that.

I'm glad to see Pat has gotten into shamanism.

I could probably count the number of articles of clothing I bought new in the last decade on my fingers (not including socks and underwear of course, because EWW). I'm definitely going to hell.
