Is Christianity a Cargo Cult?

I thought this was funny. The money quote:
John promised you much cargo more than 60 years ago and none has come," Raffaele said to Chief Isaac. "Why do you still believe in him?"

Chief Isaac smiled and uttered an irrefutable answer: "You Christians have been waiting 2,000 years for Jesus to return to earth," he said, "and you haven't given up hope."

OK, maybe not exactly a cargo cult, but certainly a cult; after all, the only difference between a cult and a religion is about 100 years. I just love that a "primitive" can zing a "sophisticated" religious system.
