The Mormon Church is a cult. Look up the traits of a cult. Maybe the information will help you decide if you want to stay interested or not. For a while I wavered on weather it is a cult or not. For one thing it is huge. World wide. However, the tier system used breaks it down into manageable parts. The extremely strict patriotic rule helps such a large organization control its people. Yes, the people do not control the church. The church controls them.
The only other feature found in cults that I swore would not be part of the Mormon church is the practice of non mainstream sexual practices. I believe that the main body of the church does not meet that criteria. However, there is part of the church that might.
