Getting to know the Church of Scientology

Here are a few super interesting links to some of the more important info on Scientology. The Church markets itself as a family-oriented, psychological self-help and humanitarian organization, but the core of Scientology’s beliefs and practices are much darker.

Here is a link to Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard (who was a moderately successful science fiction author before he started his religion) explaining Scientology’s view of the world. Apparently, many years ago the evil intergalactic warlord, Xenu, captured many of the citizens of his planet, flew them to earth in an airplane (minus the propellers), stacked their bodies up in or near volcanoes, blew them up with hydrogen bombs (not atom bombs mind you), and now the souls of these deceased aliens infest our minds and cause our psychological disorders, which only the Church of Scientology can cure, for a fee (but they use a sliding scale…whew). Thanks to Josh P.

Here is a documentary on how the Church of Scientology basically owns the city of Clearwater, Florida (including the police force). If you’ve ever been there and wondered what all the white lines on the ground are about, well…you’ll be appalled.

Here is the short version of the affidavit of Jesse Prince, a Scientology defector who was second in command of the senior branch of the Church of Scientology. His experience with the Church involved forced isolation from friends and family, a type of imprisonment, threats against his safety, and a forced abortion. You can also read the full affidavit here.

Hope you are as shocked and confused as rationality demands.

    Wow. That is disturbing and disappointing. I’m shocked that the police are able to so obviously support scientology. Didn’t they take an oath to uphold the laws and protect all citizens? The scientologist are disurbing a peaceful protest and injuring people…pretty sure that if you came at me with a hammer after all I did was knock on your door there would have been a slightly different reaction from the police. I’m now wondering what you can even do when all of the local government is corrupt? I’m pretty sure you can’t appeal to the state or federal government for small infractions and how on earth would you go about trying to indict the City of Clearwater? Thanks for sharing. I didn’t realize the amount of control that Scientology has in Clearwater.
