It is a strong political movement that certainly has its enemies, but in a free society strong political movements are not considered cults. The history that TFP posts in its website makes the political activism very clear. No one could claim they were fooled into thinking they were attending a simple prayer group if they join TFP after seeing its own literature. It only took me a few minutes to see the full political profile of the organization.
I am not very familiar with CESNUR, either, but do please post any evidence of destructive cult behavior, Oerlikon.
I am looking at the CESNUR site now and it does not look like a "TFP Front" but simply a scholarly organization of people with a similar viewpoint about society and religion. It has a very large list of books but the search method is hard to use and it looks like the books are not online, but nevertheless it is a very valuable resource. It categorizes material as "apologetic" as well as "counter" or "anti" among other categories and so it provides scholars with a full view of whatever religion they are studying. It lists over 60,000 books in its collection.
I don't actually see any connection between CESNUR and TFP.
