    Scientology - what to look out for

    1st point is they use a number of front groups, here are the main three Narconon - a supposed drug rehab... CCHR (citizens commision human rights) - lobbying hard for your rights *not* to receive medical help - especially if you need it... StudyTech - pre-brainwashing school kids to more likely join their cult.... "The Free Stress Test" - in your town centre being offered from a mobile stall - is just the main recruiting method for their cult operation Scientology..... Common to all these front groups and many more - is the author's name L. RON HUBBARD - - - Put quite simply - never trust anything associated with L RON HUBBARD..... Having just been made aware of this excellent site, i will post further information including latest trends on some of the mini scams scientology members are encouraged to carry out - in order to fund the enormous cost of the courses they have been brainwashed into taking.

    Oh there's no doubt about it.
    I grew up in Scientology and worked in the Sea Org for several years. I know more than I'd like and I still didn't know the worst of it till I got out. Surprise surprise, they don't let their own members find the truth for themselves.

    Any religion that charges you large sums of money to make you "spiritually free" should be avoided.
    That's like walking into a Christian church asking for help and them asking for money to help you.

    The "church" of Scientology is set up to control people. Thus their disconnection policy (let alone other things) which no matter how many times they deny it's existance, it is a reality!

    Scientology and CCHR sit back and say that ALL of Psychiatry is wrong and evil, yet they have no cure for mental illnesses.
    The following video is Anderson Cooper interviewing Bruce Wiseman (head f CCHR). You see that Bruce cannot answer a simple question. He spouts that "communication is the universal solvent" (Scientology quote) yet wont admit a Psychiatrist talking to someone can help them.

    I have little problem with someone believing in Scientology itself, but I do have a problem with someone supporting this malicious organization.
    I know, I worked on the "inside" for several years.

    Actually this is not what is wrong with Scientology. There is some of that in other religions. I know that in wealthy Jewish areas, you have to submit your income statement to be member of synagogue. And pay accordingly. Some Evangelical religions take 10% from every member.

    That makes those religions wrong as well.

    That's not what's wrong with Scientology??
    Let's see "donation" would imply you want to give them an amount of money. Scientology requires exact amounts to do their services. You don't just donate and get their services.

    10%...LOL. It' costs around $500,000.00 to get to the top of Scientologies "bridge to total freedom". As far as one can go right now anyways. Their bridge is bigger but they haven't released the rest of the "bridge (even more money).
    So $500,000.00 X10 = $5,000,000.00.

    Come down. I also believe that they are cult dangerous to their own members. Their cast system of rich recruiters and poor workers is despicable. I only meant that many religions expect financial contribution depending on your income.

    Re: Scientology - what to look out for

    anything that I have ever heard about scientology tells me it is wrong. yet there are eager recruits and they cater to the smart ,the movie stars, the desirables. most leave in disgust after some "mind control" that didn't work out.about finances. therre are a lot of religions out there that want your money. whther it is going to a free horoscope board like www.pasqualina.com that wants orginally 29.95 and then adds on more per spell cast for you; or it is the worldwide church of god that wants 20% or it is a televangelist that touts his or her sermons for 19.95 they all want something. I have yet to find a single source that would pray for you without a fee of some sort. makes you wonder about religion and what it does. perhaps the pundits are correct that mankind will eventually lose all interest in religion just as it lost all interest in alchemy after about 1,000 years of fascination with it in the dark ages. mankind grew tired of it. you know more wars have been fought over religion than anything else or so they tell me.anthropologists tell me that playing lotto and going to casinos shall be viewed as a type of religion by our ancestors several hundred of years from now. think of it: you go to a center of this activity ( similar to a church,mosque,or a temple) like Las Vegas,NV, Atlantic city,NJ or Beau Rivage,MS lay down money and see a show( similar to a televangelist show on TV with songs, dance,music). or you go once or twice weekly to a lotto machine or a convenience store and lay down money for no apparent reason. I guess there are similarities to religion. think about it. best wishes
