A Letter to The Church of Scientology: What do Tom Cruise, Brandy, Jason Lee, and Lisa Marie Presley all have in common? They all have so much money, that they looked up one of the most bat-shit crazy religions around today, and sent for a subscription. Now let me give you a quick rundown of what some of the basic principals behind Scientology are…
From the word of ex-Scientologist Roland Rashleigh-Berry:
The Church of Scientology is a vicious and dangerous cult that masquerades as a religion. Its purpose is to make money. It practices a variety of mind-control techniques on people lured into its midst to gain control over their money and their lives. Its aim is to take from them every penny that they have and can ever borrow and to also enslave them to further its wicked ends.
It was started in the 1950s by a science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard in fulfilment to his declared aim to start a religion to make money. It is an offshoot to a method of psychotherapy he concocted from various sources which he named “Dianetics”. Dianetics is a form of regression therapy. It was then further expanded to appear more like a religion in order to enjoy tax benefits. He called it “Scientology”.
Scientology is a confused concoction of crackpot, dangerously applied psychotherapy, oversimplified, idiotic and inapplicable rules and ideas and science-fiction drivel that is presented to its members (at the “advanced” levels) as profound spiritual truth.
The Reason: In the 1940′s, then science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard (Later founder of Scientology) is quoted as saying:
“Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion”
So what did he do? Created the religion of Scientology. Despite the total lack of free thinking ability this religion depends on to survive, that is not the reason I am writing them. This religion is very powerful monetarily and has used this influence to infiltrate numerous organizations, including the US GOVERNMENT. This organization (more like business with a religious status for tax purposes) also has many stories of human rights abuses, demanding that members cut off contact with anyone who is not a member.
