Scientology: Foe or Friend?

[digg-me]Let me start by saying I am completely against everything the Church of Scientology does. However, as the ‘Anonymous’ group unearths new evidence about the inner workings of Scientology, we must ask ourselves, is Scientology really a religion to consider a threat to the morality of our nation as a whole? Or is it rather, a haven for those who lack the mental capacity to function under the precincts of towns and of our nation? This is something we must consider in order to determine if these “believers” are people we want running freely through our streets, or if in fact, we are better off grouping them: “Scientologists.”


Much like the mental patients in psychiatric wards across the country, Scientologists (and those who should be) seek solace in the chowder-headedness of it’s Church. Like many religions founded on faith, and faith alone, believers are told not to question the church, not to question their faith, and in turn, they will receive salvation. And because Scientology professes this very idea, believers (Tom Cruise, Katy Holmes, Kirstie Alley, Lisa Marie Presley, and John Travolta among other forgettables) fail to question the intentions of the Church’s founder (and Science Fiction Writer), L. Ron Hubbard. The same guy who spoke blatantly stating, what appear to be his true intentions, “You don’t get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, you start a religion (read more here).” So how, in any normal frame of mind, does one “believe” in this fortune of a church.

That’s easy. They are this guy.

And is this guy (along with his other celebrity cronies) someone we really want to consider part of our “normal” society, or is he better off labeled “Scientologist,” which is, at least in my own educated and correct opinion, synonymous with insane (not that Evangelical isn’t). So let’s not pull a Reagan and close down the insane asylums. Let’s brand these people with the mark of idiocy, to allow them to stand out as, well, different. Don’t listen when they speak, and in turn say, “yea, ok tom.” Let’s keep the Church of Scientology on it’s feet, visit it’s patients during reserved visiting hours (MI4, or Risky Business if you’re the renting type), and keep our streets cleansed of the pollutants that be; Scientologists.
