On March 9'th of 1972, Scientology's messiah L. Ron Hubbard described what the primary "governing policy" of Scientology is in a "policy letter" from what he called his "Hubbard's Communications Office." In Scientology-speak, this is written policy is known as "HCOPL 09/Mar/72."

This written policy is backed up not only by the organization's actions but by other writings by L. Ron Hubbard. In a letter to Hellen O'Brien dated April 10'th, 1953, L. Ron Hubbard writes:

"We don't want a clinic. We want one in operation but not in name. Perhaps we could call it a Spiritual Guidance Center. Think up its name, will you. And we could put in nice desks and our boys in neat blue with diplomas on the walls and 1. knock psychotherapy into history and 2. make enough money to shine up my operating scope and 3. keep the HAS solvent. It is a problem of practical business.

"I await your reaction on the religion angle. In my opinion, we couldn't get worse public opinion than we have had or have less customers with what we've got to sell. A religious charter would be necessary in Pennsylvania or NJ to make it stick. But I sure could make it stick. We're treating the present time beingness, psychotherapy treats the past and the brain. And brother, that's religion, not mental science."
