Admittedly, I am not a person of the organized religion category. However, I do have a great deal of respect for the idea of faith. It provides a great release for a lot of people, and, in lot of ways, keep them going in life and giving them a sense of purpose to live for. Unfortunately, there are people like televangelists and super bubble gum church goers that take advantage of their follower’s sense of purpose for financial gain. A lot of the regular ones you see on TV, even though they have great attendance, extravagant venues, and the most top of the line PA system faith can buy, it is merely minor league play. Compared to the cornball racket that is Scientology, these fellas still have a lot of learning to do. It’s hard to comprehend a lot of the variety of stories of different religions. Scientology, though, is definitely the world heavyweight champion of plain as day, clear cut, bullshit. The story of Scientology is a piece of work in itself. It’s some of the most whack-a-do science fiction randomness that even if wasn’t a religion, is some pretty “meh, meh” type story telling. But the story isn’t the weirdest part. The creator and the followers of Scientology are much more entertaining than Xenu and the Galactic Confederacy.
L. Ron Hubbard was a science fiction writer for magazines that eventually published a book called Dianetics in 1950. If I were to give LRH credit for anything, it’s that this guy had a psychotic and ambitious pair of nuts on him in the world of business. His book did pretty well as far as sales, landing him a world recorded of most translated and published author in the world. Apparently, for this fucking guy, he thought that he was Jesus now because he’s competing with the Bible for real estate on local book shelves. LRH had an ego and sense of narcissism that just pours out when you see any interview with him, a very controlling and in his own world type of mind set. The fantasy camp mind set. Where a person has been living in their own world and their own bubble for so long that they have developed a structured fantasy camp that adheres to them. This is what Scientology seems to be about, as opposed to LRH’s quote that is considered the true testament of their cult:
“A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology.”
I challenge all of the readers and the internet to find a religion with a quote in it that contradicts itself more than this one. Not only is Scientology composed of insane criminals, they wage wars on people all the time that try to go against or say anything against them. Scientologists have these auditing sessions where they are basically question asking therapy sessions where their followers get people to admit personal things about their lives that have had a negative impact on them and then record all of their data. This is all then stored away until the day comes until they might need to use that information to exploit someone and ruin their career if they don’t lock them up in one of their prison camps first.
Yes. A religion with prison camps.
Rehab centers essentially where non-believers are tortured into submission until they see the ways of their high school jock superiors. The more I read and discover this “religion”, the more and more that it is a real life science fiction story. It’s Hunger Games, meets Star Wars, combined with Howard the Duck, with a sprinkle of Village of the Damned. Again, televangelists don’t have shit on these guys. When they have their events their set design team isn’t messing around. It’s vanity to an extreme and the stench of elitist butt sweat can be smelt through your screen. Their current leader, David Miscavige, along with celebrity Tom Cruise and many others, seem to be written out of a science fiction novel. The Stepford Sons of L. Ron Hubbard talk as if they knew the world was dying and they were the only ones that had the cure, but with a smug attitude because you’re not believing them enough. The speak with a sense of entitlement like they, too, along with LRH, think that they are Jesus Christ himself. Here to lead you to spiritual freedom and financial burden all in one motion of your asshole being resized with a thetan reader. It’s a real life brochure for becoming the high school varsity jock you always wanted to be with an Eyes Wide Shut and M Night Shyamalan plot twist in the end.
Even with what I’ve read and seen and even writing this, I still don’t get it. How, just because a bunch of people bullied the IRS, they got their tax exempt status to become an official religion and then gloat about it like they won a great war. I don’t get that, as full of shit as LRH was and what a terrible person personally that he was, people still followed him. Never heard any stories of Jesus or Joseph Smith threatening to kill their wife’s baby after kidnapping them, have you? There is nothing about this cult that seems to carry any other values of other religions in the sense of peace, love, and the better well being for ourselves and others. It’s just about all that for them. For a particular group of people that is not you. They still bring in billions of dollars that just continue to fund their fantasy camp squad and continue to grow not followers, but clients. Because this is a business. A shady business but a business above all. It makes the Illuminati seem welcoming in the sense that all that bullshit seems believable and more welcoming than what they have to offer.
There is so much bullshit in the story and practices of Scientology. Again, it is real life science fiction but in the form of a dog shitting in a pair of clown shoes. As absurd as my interpretation is of all this, I guess if I were to have a point to this rambling, it would be this: at what point do we call out bullshit for what it is and put a stop to it? Yeah, freedom of religion is a great thing in this world. When you take it to the extremes that Scientology does, you cross many boundaries of being a human being. You’re exploiting the time on earth that we are aware of and have for now only for a select few’s financial gain. I don’t believe in much, but I do believe that Scientology is something nobody should have faith in.
