That can be said about any religion. I can say the same thing about Christianity and I would be telling the truth. They guilt their sheeple into
giving them cash every weekend while their pastors relax with six-figure incomes or more. Many would say I'm being "insensitive" for pointing that
How about catholicism? Another multi-trillion dollar commercial industy, run by pedos and geocentrists. But I bet the catholics would be pretty upset
if I point that out.
And let's not forget Muzzies, the source of 99% of all terrorism, founded by a prophet who was a pedophile. But if you dare draw his picture, there
is blood and rioting in the streets.
There is no logical reason whatsoever to have a different standard for bashing Scientology than for bashing any other religion. Cause in the end, they
are all scams, but people still have the right to whatever religion they choose without fear of persecution.

because: (no reason given)
Apples and oranges. hubbard stated the real money was in religion.... and lo and behold he made a "religion".
If you actually take the time to study christianity, which you won't and haven't. All those catholics that you claim that exploit and manipulate
people for profit do not follow the teachings of christianity. their actions are not the truth of christianty so you are wrong.
One is misused.... the other was explicitly made for one purpose and that was to scam people.
You are attempting to lump scientology in with christianity becasue you have an axe to grind against religion.
Those people who are exploited and manipulated are stupid and those are the same people exploited by scientology, governments, religion and any other
misused ideals you can come up with.
I am pretty sure any belief you may have can be used to manipulate and scam people. some are just more obvious... and scientology is one of them and
it is a perfect way to scam because it can be protected under the umbrella of religion when in reality it is not one. And you fall for it pretty
easily mainly because again you have a problem with religion.
Athiesm can be used in the same manner, belief in mother nature and saving the planet can be used in the same manner as well. are those things scams
and evil too??? Or are they exploited by people.
if you really want to rag on something rag on this
>Humans fallen nature<
that is the reason why everything is twisted in order for exploitation and manipulation.
I will repeat.. if you study christianity it is not about donating money for indulgences, it is not about giving money to get some back, it is not
about world conquest and spreading religion by the sword, it is not about Celibacy, it is not about being a pedo. I can even get into how screwed up
the doctrine and dogma is in roman catholicism and I won't even get into non denominational churches.
your comments are just based on your hate for it but you are not objective and have a double standard yourself.
there many ideals that suffer of the same thing that are not related to christianity that end up doing the same thing.
if you are truly honest you can conclude everything is scam because it is misused by man. you can bounce back that everything is made by man... which
is a long argument and opens up another can of worms..
The only thing is that scientology is a scam. the founder said the money was in religion and then he makes one.. HOW IS THAT NOT A RELIGION BASED ON
A SCAM. NOT A SCAM BASED ON A RELIGION. .
Two different things bucko and hubbard is exploiting exactly how it would be viewed by people with an axe to grind against religion and eager to cal
I hope this prosecution fails. As it would allow people who actually believe scientolgy to be a religion to attack other religions and it would more
than likely be christianity since it is cool to bash on it now a days.
