People have dreams. Scientology makes use of peoples dreams and desires in every way possible. Might and money and people that fall for this and give their money. That's what makes Scientology dangerous. It's like a cancer in society amplifying insanity and poverty and mabye even contribute to wars.

What is different - what you don't understand - ATTACK!

I would like to know what it costs to be a member of this group. Is it based on a percentage of a persons income? What if a person cannot afford it? Do they have to drop out for that reason, like the OP mentioned?
Yes, everyone needs to eat. Most church organizations contribute to charitable causes that would benefit even non members. How does the Church of Scientology contribute to charitable causes? Do they benefit people that are non members in any way? How do they benefit communities where their church locations are?
I mentioned earlier that there seems to have been some sensational Scientology related suicides in the past. What is your take on situations like that?
This anonymous group, I'm believing that its a Scientology setup, I mean, documents that have been 'leaked' are not supposed to be in ebook format, all their stuff is hard copy. I would bet its a way to get some 'interest' in their beliefs - a lot of you started reading the material right??
