Doesn't he mean "secte"? "Culte" is an anglicism.

No, I just checked Casell's dictionary. Culte is actually honest-to-god French for cult. Secte = Sect.

Damn. I was taught that "secte" is the French word for cult. Might be a Quebec thing to mislead kids from the South Shore.

A few months back some passerby bugged SRG about his sign saying "culte."

Culte is used in French as in religious ceremony or devotion to.

So, culte being used for cult is an anglicism.

The exact translation for cult is secte.

No, according to Cassell's, sect = secte, cult = culte. There is no equivalent to saying secte = cult. It's either a local Quebec usage of the word secte or else simply poor French.

Might be a Quebec thing since here using "culte" when referring to a cult IS poor French.

Write Culte on one side of a sign, and Secte on the other. Problem solved.

Cult:"from Fr. culte, from L. cultus"

While there's no denying that, Quebec's French has its differences, the use of the word "secte" being one of them. Secte is a corruption of sect, etc.
