It really is. As much as I'll say that a lot of religious people are intolerant to other beliefs, especially those who express negative opinions about their faith, Scientologists not only take the cake, but they'll eat it and shit cake mix after.
I'm not sure if they've passed the record but this pseudo religion has been either sued or has sued more times than I can count.
And why would they sue people? Simple. For telling other people how full of shit they are.
Basically, anyone that publishes anything that expresses an opinion or even presents facts and evidence that Scientology is not only fake but that they also violate Human Rights, extort their followers and even so much as actually keeping people hostage.
As far fetched as this may seem, it's actually quite true.
Scientology is based on science fiction novels written by L. Ron Hubbard. A good example of this would be Xenu
. Xenu is Scientology's Holy scripture
, for lack of a better term, and is only revealed to those who have spent a lot of money in being audited,
a form of brainwashing if you will.
The Church of Scientology also has a reputation for attacking anyone that publicly criticizes their pseudo religion by filing lawsuits
. They're known to be some of the most intolerant people when it comes to anyone who doesn't agree with them.Another incident to mention is how Valeska Paris was held hostage upon one of their cruise ships
after having been taken from her mother when her mother left Scientology.
There are also many suicides that were reported to have been connected to Scientology as well, some of which concerning having lost entire fortunes to the Church from being extorted.The Church of Scientology also demands rights to underpay their employees,
which is a violation of their rights. These incidences were most definitely not unique
, but seem to be a cycle of abuse.
Not to mention the cases of child abuse and child labor abuse
.Here, you can see the truth behind their schools. Fact of the matter is, most of the teachers they claim are qualified to teach are in fact not qualified at all, let alone even certified.
Scientology also extortion money from their followers.
Most notably would be how they sell
their most secret scriptures to their members rather than share them freely as most religions do. They also charge people for the services, such as auditing as shown above, where they charge $5,000 (approx.) per session.
They prey on the weaknesses of others and lure them into their very well made, but poorly hidden, pyramid scheme.
Don't be fooled by the religion
label, for this is most certainly not a religion. It's a scam. I don't care if people want to believe what they want to believe, they've every right to, what is important and the point of this is that they use the pretense of religion in order to continue to abuse and violate Human Rights, commit crimes and all for financial gain.
Scientology is false and a scam.Update: Scientology recruiting children.
Not that it's anything new, mind you, but here's an example of how they attempt to recruit children into their pseudo religion without the consent or even presence of parents.
