I always try to be delicate with religions as to not offend the believers. (yes, believe me or not, I am being delicate. You don’t want to see what I don’t publish.) but with scientology the gloves are off.
To believe in any of the other religions you must be weak and not too inquisitive to say the least, but a lot of followers are there for the free cake and are not really involved in any religious life. They are in the worst case not too bright, and in the best case just easily mislead and manipulated falling into the mass hysteria where no one feels comfortable enough to admit the truth . And it Is also a social geographical matter which has been handed to people as part of the heritage and culture they were born into.
Scientology doesn’t really have an older generation, or a history, what with being blown out of the ass of a third rate science fiction writer just a couple of decades ago, which means that each and every scientologist has made a conscious choice to join that joke.
So , let me say this loud and clear:
If you are a scientologist, I think you are a moron. An idiot. I would sell you a bridge or two if I had the patience to talk to people like you. There are no ifs, there are no buts, there are no excuses – you are a stupid stupid man.
That feels better. Now we can really start.
Scientologists have all the right to be called a religion and should be treated the same way as followers of other major religions, with the respect they deserve. (Which in my case means none, but I am talking about the general sane population, not me)
They are NOT more ridiculous then Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and their ilk. They are all stupid on the same level with fantastic tales and absurd logic.
Scientology is just more modern so it seems strange. I am convinced that a thousand years from now scientology will be considered the 'old religion' where no one doubts the word of the saint prophet Hubbard and the cruise dynasty, yes the same dynasty that you read about in Dan brown's hundred and forty third book "the tom code"
I see it all the time with quotes I use. If I take a sentence I wrote and put some name of an unknown aristocrat from the 13th century on it , people read it and go 'ahm' with a respectable face ' these are wise words. Nice." . The same phrase said right now, still warm from the wheels moving in my brain? Doesn’t work. Need to wait seven hundred years I guess.
I suspect it is the same story with scientology. Today people all over the world follow a Jewish zombie who walked on water and created fish out of bread while healing the sick in the name of his father who is everything and rules everything but can't be seen. This father figure has an army of winged aliens who fight the other winged aliens who live in a fiery eternity under something that doesn’t exist but you will go there if you don’t stop doing that, put your hands on the table where I can see them.
And this alien boss of all bosses is EXTREMLY pissed off if you eat pigs. If you did something that will piss off that boss of all boss, capo di tutti capi, he will forgive you only if you sing for him ten times his favorite hit song, and pay a fine. If you want to be in our club you have to go shower and the sins will be washed away by the water who are now free radical free and deinoized after the verbal manipulation of our local representative. You can pay for the water on the way out.
Suddenly, Scientology doesn’t really sound all that weird. It’s a brilliant cut and paste job, replacing old bovine manure with new bovine manure, and making the whole process much more profitable and efficient. Good for them.
They are still idiots. Or greedy businessman, if they are on the top. But that is just a small percentage I am sure. They are mostly idiots .Especially tom cruise. But I suspect that would have remained the eternal global truth even without scientology.
