John Travolta refused treatment for his autistic son under the pressure of that same organization. The reason was that they do not recognize psychiatric of mental related illnesses. This proved to be fatal.

Do you have any facts to back up your absurd claim?
Since you've set yourself up as Righteous Judge to decide who and what 'deserves persecution' like some kind of High Inquisitor I'm guessing you are basing these statements on your personal feelings and speculation alone.
I hope people can see this as an example of how sad the double standards on this board have become. If I posted "Jews deserve nothing but ridicule and persecution" there would no doubt be screams of bloody murder and maybe even a ban hammer. I hope there are at least some left with enough intelligence to recognize and reject these kinds of double standards.
I have no affiliation to Scientology but the amount of persecution they have to put up with constantly from people like this is just sad.edit on 28-12-2012 by SilentKoala because: (no reason given)

You're assuming that they both should share you're outlook and morals.
I empathize with them because I believe everything happens for a reason. If it's in divine order that I become sick or if I'm confronted with a situation that others would consider less than ideal - then I don't see myself as big enough to question the design of the Universe/Spirit, or the consciousness of the Earth.
Scientology as I see it - is a system that's built in a way that allows people to abuse it. There's noting new there, greed exists in many forms. And as for the beliefs of scientology, I know VERY little, but I understand that it's commonly accepted that we were planted on Earth by aliens long ago, or something along those lines. And in my personal opinion - that comes much closer to the truth than many other religions (at least the aspects in most common religions that most people believe).
I hope my different outlook provokes some thoughts brother. It is just that afterall - simply my outlook.
