I would think all groups would be bound by the same rules whether a cult or not

I am sure Janet Napolitano Ice Cream, grey streak in her hair. Would label anyone a prepper (therefore a hate group) if they own more than one gun; like the media did to the whacked mentally ill Sandy Hook Shooter's mom.

Mainly whichever way the media decides to spin it to get the highest ratings/most attention

I mean what does the KKK say: deport all blacks is all right? they don't say "kill all N&&&&&!!!"

is this really worse than....burn in a fiery hell for all eternity? Or everyone who is not one of us is our servant? or anyone who doesn't believe in a one true gods should be killed?

To not publicly embrace abortion, alternative lifestyles, single motherhood, gun control, unions, atheism, and Obama. That's an easy one.

Call yourself CAIR I think is one way to achieve what you posit.

I am pretty sure when deciding tax exempt status the government has to be content neutral. IE they can't judge it based on what the groups say, just if they follow the rules.

As to the hate group and cult designation, as the US government has no such official designations, that part of your question is irrelevant.
