All too true. The actress Lea Remini, a former Scientologist, has been doing an expose series on the American A&E network about the abuses of Scientology. A very scary cult! Just a month ago Remini did a two-hour segment on the JWs and how they practice shunning that destroys families. The two cults have in common exactly what you said.

Muslims are also notoriously harsh toward apostates. Play it safe and call 'em all cults I say, nice and disparaging too.
