Exploding the Scientology myth

Scientology is in the headlines at the moment because of the antics of Tom Cruise, whose zealotish spoutings on the cult – let’s not pretend it’s a religion – have hit the web and provoked a storm of criticism. The Scientologists, renowned for attacking anything which portrays them in a bad light, used their considerable influence to get the video clip removed for YouTube (you can see Cruise’s sickeningly sincere droning by clicking here).

If you are in any doubt that this is not a religion, then consider this. The whole cult is based on some totally insane “facts”. How about this for a start.

75 million years ago, there was an alien galactic ruler named Xenu who was in charge of 76 planets in our sector of the galaxy, including planet Earth, whose name at that time was Teegeeack …. To finish the story, the Loyal Officers of the Marcab Confederation finally discovered how evil Xenu was and overthrew him. He is now locked away in a mountain on one of the planets and kept in by a force-field powered by an eternal battery. Several of Xenu’s relatives can often be found on the internet newsgroup called alt.religion.scientology or ARS for short battling Scientology daily.

Many Scientologists who have left from the highest levels of Scientology have told us that they have sat in a room at Scientology’s Sandcastle building in Clearwater, Florida for 5-7 hours per day for up to 10 years, holding two asparagus cans together, attached to a primitive lie detector, talking all day to these dead space aliens. And guess what? You’ll never ever finish talking to dead space aliens until you leave Scientology.

As with all cults, this one is dangerous. Finally it seems the backlash has started

  2. There’s an old American Indian fable about a man with two wolves living inside of him, one good and one bad. He asked an old wise man which one would win – he said, “The wolf you feed.” I think you need to figure out which wolf you want to feed.

    Scientology is a religion. Get over it. I’ve been a minister of it for 30 some years, marrying people, ministering and counseling people for much of that time. As a religion, we have our religious bona fides in order — we’ve been jumping through endless hoops all over the world, for government recognition for as long as I can remember. First it was the IRS, which eventually relented from the bigoted, prejudiced stand they had taken for 40 years and granted full tax exemption (just like they grant every other church in the USA). Recently we’ve received a string of legal bona fides in Europe, including full recognition by the European High Court of human rights.

    Whatever you think of Scientology (and it’s pretty clear you have been egregiously misinformed) you are free to say whatever you think about it. Obviously you can spew about anything you want on here – it’s your blog. You could just as easily spew hatred of how Jews are responsible for every ill of the world, how Mormons are all polygamists, or how Catholics are all ritualistic cannibals for believing in communion. But recognize that what you’re doing is spreading religious bigotry, pure and simple.

    I won’t debate the basic beliefs of my religion other than to say that we believe all men are immortal spiritual beings who are basically good. If you want to find out more about the subject for yourself, there are many books on the subject in libraries around the world. Read the books and figure out for yourself whether you agree with the real basics of the religion, as opposed to what’s been posted above. I recommend you start with my personal favorite, a book called “Dianetics 55” — it covers the basics of interpersonal communication very well.
