I don’t blame Leah Remini for her televised crusade against Scientology and its greedy, celebrity-crazed leaders. What I don’t comprehend is how she and her family ever became persuaded by an entity that is not anything close to being a religion, or how anyone else can,in the first place. (Of course, Leah herself was a child and children pretty much are at the whim of their parents’ lunacy so Ms. Remini should be cut some slack for her immersion in L. Ron Hubbard’s world of idiocy.)
Something must be wrong with people that actually believe in this garbage! Then again, I don’t truly understand how any sane person could be misled by any organization that calls itself a ‘religion’ be it Catholicism, Mormonism, or whatnot. I feel that religion is the worst thing that mankind dreamed up, after weapons of mass destruction and guns of all types.
Here are some very unnerving truths about this evil system masquerading as a religion:
- Scientology actually runs a child labor camp Down Under.
- Gold Base – just read about it here and laugh your head off.
- The Cult Awareness Network, which was founded after the November 1978 deaths of Peoples Temple members in Jonestown, Guyana, once listed Scientology as the #1 Most Dangerous Cult. They were sued into non-existence by Scientologists who renamed it the New Cult Awareness Network, which is funny considering that many believe Scientology to be a cult.
- Scientologists spied on the creators of Southpark in an attempt to gain something on the guys to be used as blackmail yet couldn’t find anything.
Germany does not recognize Scientology as a religion, and the English Court of Appeals discovered in 1970 that the organization ‘does not engage in religious worship’. Both L. Ron Hubbard’s namesake and Charles Manson rejected the belief system; Hubbard Jr changed his name to Ronald DeWolf and Manson called Scientology ‘too crazy’.
I’d like to share this interesting tidbit from the site Xenu.net:
The science fiction content of Scientology is revealed to them after they have reached the state they call “Clear”, meaning freed from the aberrations of the mind. However, perhaps “brainwashed” would be a more applicable word to describe the mental state of someone who has survived the near entire delusional contents of their subconscious mind brought to the surface and presented to them as “truth”. On the “advanced” levels (called OT levels) above the state of “Clear” they encounter the story of Xenu. Xenu was supposed to have gathered up all the overpopulation in this sector of the galaxy, brought them to Earth and then exterminated them using hydrogen bombs. The souls of these murdered people are then supposed to infest the body of everyone. They are called “body thetans”. On the advanced levels of Scientology a person “audits out” these body thetans telepathically by getting them to re-experience their being exterminated by hydrogen bombs. So people on these levels assume all their bad thoughts and faulty memories are due to these body thetans infesting every part of their body and influencing them mentally. Many Scientologists go raving mad at this point if they have not done so already.
It seems that the only members of Scientology the leaders really care about are their celebrities which to me is quite laughable because their most visible celeb, Tom Cruise, isn’t honestly all that talented. His performance in Valkyrie was mediocre at best, and Nicole Kidman ought to be grateful she got away from him when she did. Katie Holmes? That chick is a has-been who thought she’d landed a golden goose; if she’d been smarter she’d have realized that anyone involved with a cult will put that organization above everything else in his life. As for John Travolta? Another washed up actor, I never liked the guy. Celebrities tend to be stupid anyhow, so the fact that many of them are duped by the evils of Scientology isn’t surprising.
Scientology isn’t any more a real religion than is Transcendental Meditation and Scientologists are a bunch of brainwashed sheeple being led by the nose by a few money/power-hungry rotters who are laughing all the way to the bank.
