Anyone interested in Scientology should read Tom Cruise, the unauthorized biography, by Andrew Morton.
An excellent overall view of the fanaticism, gullibility and sadness of its members.

Scientology is not a 'religion.' Scientology is a dangerous cult that abuses its members to the point of death. It bilks its members of hundreds of thousands of dollars. It thrives on intimidation, threats and lies. How can any such organization claim to be working for the good of anyone?
How much more evidence do we need?

I now many of you who will read what follows will dismiss it out of hand. It is your decision but many of you will have the facts in your possession; however for the sake of balance it needs to be stated.
"I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, with all lowliness and meekness, with long suffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Ephesians 4: 1-5

Dear Ms Mein (and the other poor, lost souls of the aliens),
I will read a book, a fictional, no wait, a science-fictional adventure book! Perhaps even I will go on to read about ‘Dianetics’ so that I “can achieve a superhuman state called "Clear" with superior IQ”. Or maybe I will refer people to the South Park episode (yes, the war still rages!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfWGwXcUoao and let that shed just a little light on their founding doctrines, or as they say, ‘canonical texts’.
Good luck Scientology, you’re going to need it.

In this article Mike Ferris admits that there is indeed a policy of disconnection in the Church of Scientology.
This shows that Scientology spokesperson Tommy Davis is a liar. He publically denied that there is any policy of disconnection in the church.
Watch his lies here:
What else did he lie about?

Google "Keep "scientology Working" and read this policy that EVERY Scientologist must read and apply.KSW (as Tom Cruise calls it in that video) is what causes so many deaths in the cult. Now Google "Why Are They Dead".

All the OSA handlers for this article have children in the Sea.Org, my what a coincidence. How can Scientology dismiss anyone for ethics, Scientology is about as ethical as the Taliban.

How do they sucker people into it? They collared me on Queen St as a naive 18yo (34 years ago!), with the sort of issues going on that would probably have had them running at the mouth with anticipation of how long they could rule me, but once I did a couple of their 'tests' I spotted the control freaks and opted out. What makes people deny the obvious to themselves and let them get a hold?
Not just this whacko crowd but all the other nutjobs around the place? The theme is the same: total control & greed.

My son was in the Scientology Sea Organization. He left to handle situations in his life, but plans to rejoin the group. He was not actually at sea... most Sea Org members aren't, although they do have some members on ships. In my son's opinion, the Sea Org is attempting to handle crime, drug addiction, war, and discrimination on this planet. Looking over the current scene with terrorism, threats of nuclear bombs, war and crime, it seems to me that this world needs all the help that it can get. Of course, if people don't wish to join the Sea Org or wish to leave, then they should leave. Personally, Scientology has helped me a lot - it works. So thank you to the Sea Organization for keeping it going. As for the claims that it is a money scheme, my son earned a fraction of what he makes outside the Sea Org, and when goes back to the Sea Org, he will return to that low pay to have a chance to make a difference in this world. The Sea Org is making a difference, but it isn't for everyone. Personally I know that I am not physically up to dealing with the long hours and hard work. They are a very dedicated group.

To TC, Nicola Mein and others who defend the Cult of Scientology I have a few points to make.
Firstly, Lafayette Hubbard (or L.Ron, if you must) was a Fraud. Both in financial terms and in setting up a religion (Dianetics) as his "get rich quick" scheme.
Secondly, you've said Scientology does work "for human rights".
Where were Lisa McPherson's human rights?
While you're at it, how about Kaja Ballo, Noah Lottick, Eric Rubio, Shaun Lonsdale, Quentin Hubbard, Susan Meister and Konrad Aigner?
For anyone who still believes the "Church" of Scientology is no more than some benevolent group who council people to improve their lives, who do "good works", who are anything other than a dangerous and abusive cult that destroys lives and has killed people. Anyone who believes their "free personality tests" are anything less than their method of getting vulnerable people into their cult - please open your eyes. You've got the biggest information resource in the history of mankind right at your fingertips. Go to your favourite search engine or video website and search for things like "scientology truth" to see what it's really all about.
Though it is always bad under close scrutiny, Scientology isn't as obviously bad until its members run out of money or until someone stands up against them.
The practice of "Fair Game" was NEVER renounced. While they stopped "declaring" people fair game, the renunciation was carefully worded to keep the practice intact. Don't know what Fair Game is? Again, get searching and you'll see.
There are some good people in the "Church" of Scientology - but the "church" itself is rotten to the core.
