The Cult of Scientology

13 01 2008

Well in lieu of posting an actual, new blog, I thought I would import this blog from my old, Myspace blog that I used to use back in the day. Personally, I think it is one of my best works ever. Read it, absorb it’s message and tell me what you think, in a comment. Thanks.

I’m sure everybody has heard of Scientology in some way shape or form. Probably in some article about Tom Cruise. Well, I’ve since done some digging and found out that, yes, everything you have read about this weird cult is true. The Wikipedia Article reads like the plot of a science fiction book, and rightly so. Because believe it or not, the founder of the cult was originally a Science Fiction author. The article on L. Ron. Hubbard reads more like a comedy script than a biography. The contradictions between the “official” version that the cult … er … “church” presents and the real versions by independent journalists are so vast that it makes me laugh.

Further down the article, we see that Hubbard was practically a madman. After trying to get in the good books of the white government in the then Rhodesia, they asked him to leave, and he created a fleet of boats and an organisation called the Sea Org, where he had teenaged girls dressed in white hot pants, called “Commodore’s Messengers”, wait on him hand and foot, bathing and dressing him and even catching the ash from his cigarettes. Members of the Sea Org have to sign a contract (yes a legally binding contract) stating that they will work for the organisation for 1 billion years. Here is a digital version of this contract, in case you don’t believe me – check the attached file – “Sea Org Religious Commitment” Contract. It was common for him to throw violent tantrums, throw people overboard the ship, bound, gagged and blindfolded, and lock them away in filthy chainlockers for weeks on end.

Hubbard eventually died at his ranch on 24 January 1986, where the post-mortem revealed high levels of scientology banned drugs. Of course, the whackjobs at the cult claimed that he had abandoned his body to conduct higher level research, unencumbered by mortal restraints.

His first son, L. Ron Jr. claimed that when he was six, he witnessed his father performing an abortion on his mother … with a coathanger. His second son, turned out homosexual, attempted suicide in 1974, and eventually died in mysterious circumstances in 1976. The cult of course, rejects all homosexuals and Hubbard himself was highly homophobic.

The so called church has been panned internationally, an Australian court said “Scientology is evil; its techniques are evil; its practice is a serious threat to the community, medically, morally, and socially; and its adherents are sadly deluded and often mentally ill… (Scientology is) the world’s largest organization of unqualified persons engaged in the practice of dangerous techniques which masquerade as mental therapy.” A london high court said “Scientology is both immoral and socially obnoxious…It is corrupt sinister and dangerous. It is corrupt because it is based on lies and deceit and has its real objective money and power for Mr. Hubbard … It is sinister because it indulges in infamous practices both to its adherents who do not toe the line unquestioningly and to those who criticize it or oppose it.”

Which brings me to the cult’s infamous Fair Game policy. In a nutshell, this is a policy that the cult has on opponents (called “Supressive Persons”) of the cult itself. Under the policy of Fair Game, former members have been blackmailed, harassed, threatened or generally bullied by the multi-billion dollar cult. One definition, written by Hubbard himself … “ENEMY — SP Order. Fair game. May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.” Lovely to belong to a “religion” that is so caring and loving, isn’t it?

And now, we get to the really laughable part. Laughable in that a religion is based on it. Here is the main core principle of the religion. 75 Million years ago, an evil alien dictator Xenu, had too many people on his 76 planets (each had an average of 178 billion), so, with the help of psychiatrists, he called lots of the people in for “income tax inspections”. But then, when the people arrived, he drugged them and flew them to the planet Teegeeack in Douglas DC-8s, except that they didn’t have propellers. There, he stacked the billions of people around volcanoes and exploded hydrogen bombs in the volcanoes.
Sound laughable? It gets worse …
Then, he used a special machine to gather up all the people’s souls (Hubbard named them thetans), put them in boxes and forced them to watch movies for 36 days. The movies were “misleading data” about “God, the Devil, space opera, etcetera”. Hubbard claimed that all world religions, except Scientology of course originated from this initial viewing of these movies. Anyway, to continue with our story …
These movies left the thetans with no personal identity, and so thousands of them started to cluster together. Convienently, a few bodies survived the explosions, so the clusters of thetans gathered into those bodies. These bodies of course were our ancestors. (Yes, Hubbard called earth Teegeeack). So everything that is wrong in the world is because of the souls of dead aliens clinging to our bodies. And who can save us from this awful fate worse than death? Scientologists of course. Yes, by paying a very nominal fee (about $380 000 all in total), you too can be brainwashed by this cult and can start converting others as well. Sounds like a bargin to me.

Allow me to end with some quotes from Hubbard himself. “Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wants to make a million dollars, the best way would be to start his own religion.” And guess what? He did start his own religion and made a fortune off of gullible people. Another gem – “We can brainwash faster than the Russians”. Oh, so you admit it then. Hmm

If you have some spare time on your hands, may I suggest you read the wikipedia articles on Scientology, Xenu, L. Ron Hubbard, Thetans and basically as many linked articles on Scientology as you can. Also, make sure to check out Operation Clambake which is a good a place as any to begin to free your mind.

Until next time, be safe, and be free, especially in your mind and your thoughts.

Which L Ron Hubbard and which SCIENTOLOGY are you thinking about? R J 37 The Truth was a fraud, the voice on that tape was a Ron Impersonater. The person that everybody knew as LRH might have been a bodydouble. There might be a group of people who benefit from the”Church”‘s profits. What happens to all the money the “Church” makes? Where does the money go, and how much work is it to hide that much money?
Is the sci-fi writer really the jerk, or might it be the mystery owners of the “Church”?
