Damned Scientologists

RE: Damned Scientologists
(January 28, 2021 at 4:22 pm)arewethereyet Wrote: I recently watched a couple episodes from the docuseries by Leah Remini about Scientology and just couldn't watch any more.  There were several interviews with people who were either born into it or were in it for a long time and the stuff they talked about was just so damn bizarre.  

I get that most religions are bizarre but this is some seriously whacked out stuff.  The way people were/are treated, the money they put into it, and the things they believe are impossible for me to comprehend.  I enjoy learning about cults but this one is just too much.

It's kinda insane;  the more you look at it, just calling it a cult seems inadequate, since it's also a combination of the ravings of a madman, a Ponzi Scheme that charges you 150k to tell you we're all just cavemen with dozens of alien ghosts fighting over us at any given moment, and the power trip of a dwarf with all the even-headedness, imagination, and ruthlessness of The Trunchbull, and this chimera is so fucking powerful it can engage in legal guerrilla warfare with the U.S. Government and win. And the fact that hundreds of celebrities get taken in by it just makes it all the more jaw-dropping.
