That's not true at all.
A cult is merely a term used to describe a religion that is false.
For instance, if one is a Christian, they would believe that every other religion other than Christianity would be false. Those religions would then be called "cults".
Since I'm a Christian, I've known many at church who use this term to describe other religions.

Whether Satanism is a cult or not, a cult does not neccessarily worship the devil.

In the eyes of that teenager, he obviously thought that Scientology was a cult. Of course, this is his opinion-- And everyone is entitled to their own opnions.
