Mormonism: Cult, Christianity, or Both?

Mormonism cultIt is often said that the difference between a religion and a cult comes down to the number of adherents. Longevity seems to be a factor too, as it seems like it is usually the people who belong to older, established religions who use the cult label to describe newer religions.

I am curious about why many fundamentalist Christians are so adamant in insisting that Mormonism is a cult and that Mormons are not Christians. Do you think this is based on differences of doctrine, jealousy over the rapid growth of this religion in the United States, or is something else going on here?

Do you think of Mormons as Christians or not?
