profiting members of the church of Scientology. Why?, what is scientology?.
Other reports by church defectors include harassment, assault, and a process they call "cutting off", basically the church cuts you off from your family, that means that if you are the head of a Scientology family, and you decide to quit the church, you are free to do so, but you have to give up your family, they belong to the church.
Lisa McPherson (February 10, 1959 – December 5, 1995) was a member of the Church of Scientology who died of a pulmonary embolismwhile under the care of the Flag Service Organization (FSO), a branch of the Church of Scientology. Following the report of the state'smedical examiner that indicated that Lisa was a victim of negligent homicide, the Church of Scientology was indicted on two felonycharges, "abuse and/or neglect of a disabled adult" and "practicing medicine without a license."
There's also a very good reason why there's not as much talk of Scientology from skeptic TV shows, Scientology has a fierce team of lawyers and they jump to the neck of whoever dares to criticize the church, a couple of years ago, the magic duo Penn & Teller wanted to make an episode about Scientology on their show Bullshit!, that never happened, allegedly because SHOWTIME didn't want to deal with legal action from the church of Scientology.
In 1978 Mary Sue Hubbard, L. Ron Hubbard's wife was accused by a grand jury of masterminding a conspiracy against the government to stop them from investigating the church's business practices. L. Ron Hubbard himself was being persecuted by the IRS for stealing 200 million dollars from the church's money, he died before he could answer to the authorities.
The famous E-meter was shot down by the medical association, every e-meter needs to have a label indicating that it has no proven effect in the diagnosis, treatment or prevention of any disease. It's basically in the same isle as a ouiji board, dousing rods, GT-200, and other mumbo jumbo "spiritual" devices.
At what point should we start attacking scientology more often and more directly?, should we start now?, or should we just wait for the masses to be more and more disappointed of Jesus, Muhammad, Yahweh or even Joseph Smith and run into the arms of something like Scientology?, have you ever seen a scientology in a debate defending his beliefs?, scary stuff right?, they don't even try to be rational, at least the christians and muslims try to sound reasonable, they try to make a case for themselves, Scientologists throw rationality overboard, they have a whole book of instructions called How to Confront and Shatter Supression: a guide on PTS/SP
To Scientologists, anyone who criticizes the church's methods is a SP (supressive person) you know, someone that suppresses your Thetan with his negativity, a PTS is a potential supressive person, often someone close to the SP, a PTS is deemed dangerous because he might be highly influenced by the SP, thus resulting in very destructive situations for your inner Thetan.
Good luck arguing with a scientologist. I'm missing a lot of interesting stuff but i feel this is a good introduction to Scientology, ill save more crazy goodies, like their hate towards psychiatry and the belief that they are the only qualified persons on earth to deal with issues of the mind for future articles.
