I’ve long assumed Scientology was a cult. Their spiritual leader a scam artist.
No doubt some members of this organization (Travolta, Cruise for example) believe it’s been positive for their lives. But the “religion” itself is based on irrational nonsense. Scientology should no be getting religious status under any tax code.
L. Ron Hubbard … often referred to by his initials, LRH, was an American author and the founder of the Church of Scientology. After establishing a career as a writer, becoming best known for his science fictionand fantasy stories, he developed a system called Dianetics which was first expounded in book form in May 1950. He subsequently developed his ideas into a wide-ranging set of doctrines and rituals as part of a new religious movement that he called Scientology.
He was, in fact, a troubled man. Charismatic. But quite possibly mentally ill himself. Paranoid. Sometimes a danger to his family and followers.
David Miscavige ( born April 30, 1960) is now the leader. A good buddy of Tom Cruise.
