The recent article "Training in Scientology guides rescuer, volunteer minister" kind of makes Scientology sound like the thing to get into, doesn't it?

Never mind the million-dollar lawsuits against ex-members who have tried to leave the "church" or its well-documented tactics of framing and blackmailing opponents. And, of course, who cares that the central belief of the "religion" is that there is a 7.5 million-year-old renegade alien named Xenu locked up in a volcano in Hawaii?

This story makes Scientology sound like the thing to get involved in - as though it were simply a method for focusing and bettering yourself. I strongly suggest anyone interested in joining up first research the history of this "religion" before they sign any dotted lines.
