Well, as someone who was asked to join the group multiple times (heck even today one of their consultants left me a voice mail) I can tell you, that it is brainwashing and I like to talk about it as "guilt related therapy or trauma."
See people have things that are clandestine and the Auditors push to get it out of you, which in my opinion, is a means of using this against you.
If work out here, you know that pretty much half this industry is not straight, but they keep somehow telling people that Hollywood is Anti-Gay, which makes no sense considering so many are.
Anyway, I've probably said too much and they'll probably be calling me tonight, asking me if I feel despressed, but any person who believes in a Christian God (which I do) could never be able to become a Scientologist.
If I feel the pledge of allegiance is propaganda, what do you think I feel about their organization?
Hey KatieGirl. I dont worry about it. I know it's inevitable and the longer I can stay here the better. Do I think we go to a better place? That would be nice and I'd like to believe that but I have no proof so I doubt it.
Tom Cruise changed his wifes name now, it's not Katie, it's now Kate. He said Katie was a childs name and now she is a mother.

So, you aren't afraid of dying, Johnny?
Do you believe you go to a better place or something else?
BTW ... Scientology was created by fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. It is not a legitimate religion in origin. I'm a writer too, but I'd hate to think anything that came out of my imaginative, nutsy, goofy head would be turned into a major, global religion with Tom Cruise as the "Dalai Lama" of it!

It is bull sh*t. I used to take an anti depressant, so I was completely turned off by the whole "scientology" blogney to begin with. If you ask me, i think it is a "religion" for people who don't know who they are, and need a LOT of help.
Your absolutely right, but so is a lot of other organized groups. Scientology/ Ron L Hubbard's group has been quite successful intimmidating people out of their money with one of, maybe the second largest CULT in the world. Sad but true. In fact Clearwater Florida is going down the tubes thanks to the concentration of Scientologists and non tax paying status of it's organization. Tom Cruise should be all the wiser?? What a concept take money and pay no tax, while the city turns to crap. Most religious organizations help the community and people, not isolate and/or harm them! Beware of this group.
Just my input stevey
Scientology is a cult, not a religion. It is banned in many european countries. Just do a search and see what the origin of the cult is. They believe that an alien,Xenu, destroyed billions of humans millions of years ago and that is the basis of all of our problems. Very disturbing.
