Scientology's doublecross

Scientology's® Claims

The Scientology religion has a strong ethical and moral component that offers very workable guidelines for improving one's own life as well as the lives of others. This reflects the very essence of Scientology teaching: to go out and improve conditions to make this world a better place for all.

Scientology Scriptures repeatedly emphasizes the need for individuals to apply its wisdom to better the conditions of their family, neighbors, their friends and society at large.

Thus, Scientologists are not following the scriptural mandate of their religion to the extent they seek only the spiritual enhancement of themselves. As Scientologists continue their spiritual ascent, they assume more and more responsibility for both themselves and their fellow man.


And now for the truth

According to Scientology's once-secret internal documentation, what's considered ethical is anything that makes money for the Scientology organization. Things which don't make money for the organization is called "out ethics" and such things include having babies, giving to charities, and not signing up for more and engless "courses"

The suggestion that Scientology is some how a religion probably doesn't need to be debunked any further than by looking at Scientology's once secret internal documents, one of which was written by L. Ron Hubbard to his wife wherein Hubbard is caught deliberately contriving the notion of pretending to be a religion as a tax dodge.

How well does Scientology "improve one's life?" Well, if you're one of the ringleaders it certainly makes one rich! Followers who mistakenly subject themselves to Scientology's predations, however, don't fare so well. The court record is stuffed full of detailed examples of how Scientology "improves one's life." A good example of that is Mr. Raul Lopez who suffered a vehicle accident and signed on with Scientology to improve his life. The number of examples of such "improvements" are far too numerous to list and in any event can be found in court documents widely available on the Internet.

As for Scientology "scriptures" suggesting that family needs "better conditions," Scientology forces followers to abandon family members who are not Scientologists of once were Scientologists yet twigged to the fact of the fraud and escaped the organization. The crime syndicate calls his policy "disconnection" and it's done to keep the rubes from being informed by loved ones about what Scientology really is all about least the rubes twigg to the fraud and also leave.

The criminal enterprise justifies this anti-family ideology by demanding that abandoning one's spouse and children is "what's good for the greater dynamic." And Scientology, of course, is the "dynamic" that's "greater" than one's own family.

Finally, the suggestion that followers are even able to follow Scientology "scripture" is a lie simply because Scientologists are never informed about what Scientology's once-secret "scriptures" actuall say until followers pay up those big bucks. Some free Scientologists -- Scientologists that practice the "technology" of Scientology without being followers of the criminal enterprise are allowed to read Hubbard's "scriptures" without the extortion of having to pay for the privelage. Manu such Scientologists are known as the FreeZone and they offer a better, non criminal version of Scientology.
