Scientology,Yes or No? part 2 of 2

It Is Alive! It is Alive!

The religious monster we have come to know as,"Scientology" is born। Scientology is a body of beliefs and related practices described as a self-help system,using the concept of Dianetics। Hubbard later characterized Scientology as an "applied religious philosophy" and the basis for a new religion। Allegations for declaring it as a religion were said to be more financial than spiritual। Along with Hubbard's dreams for omnipotence. Scientology encompasses a spiritual rehabilitation philosophy and techniques, which covers topics such as morals, ethics, detoxification, education and management.

Hubbard achieved this by founding the first Church of Scientology in December of 1953.Today Scientology organizations form a complex network geared towards introducing Scientology into society. Religious Technology Center owns the trademarks and service marks of Scientology.These marks are licensed for use by the Church of Scientology International and its affiliated organizations. This religion sells its use to Scientology-affiliated corporations such as Narconon, Criminon and Applied Scholastics. These practices since their birth have remained highly controversial. Journalists, courts and the governing bodies of several countries have stated that the Church of Scientology is a cult and an unscrupulous commercial enterprise that harasses its critics and abuses the trust of its members. Scientology officials argue that most negative press has been motivated by interest groups and that most of the controversy is past historyMany of these disapproving feelings have been sparked by the appalling numbers of questionable deaths and suicides from it's members.An example of one of these deaths is the incident involving the late,"Lisa McPherson"

On November 18, 1995, Lisa was involved in a minor car accident. She was apparently not hurt, but she got out of her car and took all her clothes off and seemed mentally unstable. She was taken to a hospital where she was physically evaluated as being unharmed, but the hospital wanted her to be psychologically cared for. However, some Scientologists arrived and stated that Lisa did not believe in psychiatry, and she checked out after a short evaluation and left with the Scientologists. She went with them to Room 174 of the Ft. Harrison Hotel a Scientology owned facility for "rest and relaxation" according to the church, but church logs from Lisa's stay there from November 18 to her death December 5 show differently. Some logs are missing, and a high ranking ex-Scientologist has written an affidavit in which he claims that the church has in the past destroyed documents that might get the church in trouble.

The family of Lisa McPherson sued Scientology and individuals involved for wrongful death, while Scientology claimed it did nothing wrong toward Lisa While settlement talks were completed after being forced by the court, the case appears to still be active. Scientology had a web page that smeared Lisa's aunt and attorney. On November 13, 1998, Scientology was indicted on 2 felony charges in Lisa's death. On June 12, 2000 the criminal charges were dropped against Scientology because supposedly the medical examiner could not be counted on to confidently testify, even though the criminal charges were abuse of a disabled person and practicing medicine without a license. You can read much of the Clearwater police department's evidence and Scientology's logs of Lisa's stay, view some of the autopsy photos, and decide for yourself. Then ask why Scientology now makes members sign a waiver specifically against suing Scientology. .My major concerns with this incident are:

It was reported an ex-scientologist friend of Lisa's, before her death asked Lisa why did she take off her clothes after the wreck. Lisa replies, " I was hoping to be kept for psychiatric treatment."

After being released from the hospital she was said to have weighed 150lbs. At her autopsy she only weighed 108lbs. In 17 days she lost 42lbs. Maybe Kristie Alley showed up to assist her with her rest and relaxation.

When they did finally decided to provide her with professional treatment they didn't take her to the nearest hospital which was only a few blocks away. They loaded her cockroach bitten,cadaver resembling body into a church van and took her to the 5th closest hospital...5th! Scientology's claims of innocence,I don't buy them for a minute. And anyone that does only proves P.T. Barnum's theory,"There's a sucker born every minute.

"The Evil Prince Xenu

The head of the Galactic Federation the being formerly know as,"Prince Xenu" ruled 76 planets around larger stars visible from here.Founding this federation 95,000,000 years ago.He begins to have an overpopulation (250 billion or so per planet) So he placed billions in cryostasis loading them jet powered ships resembling DC-8's, transported them across the galaxy to Teegeeack (Earth) and put an H-Bomb on the principal volcanoes in order to destroy these captives upon arrival. Well the freed souls of these captives once released from their bodies, were dispersed amongst the human inhabitants of this planets. Causing the fears and instabilities scientologist seek to cure, bringing peace and world harmony.Maybe we can learn from this prince and load our deathrow inmates and undesirables onto space shuttles and ship them accross the galaxay before we kill them. Now why would someone have problems believing this? It makes perfect sense.I'm sorry but this just sounds like a bad episode of the X-files.

Mr Humanitarian

Another fact scientologist fail to mention is, in 1977, Scientology offices on both coasts of the United States were raided by FBI agents seeking evidence of Operation Snow White, a church-run espionage network. Hubbard's wife Mary Sue and a dozen other senior Scientology officials were convicted in 1979 of conspiracy against the United States federal government, while Hubbard himself was named by federal prosecutors as an "unindicted co-conspirator." At this time the IRS also had evidence that he had skimmed millions of dollars from church accounts and secreted the funds to destinations overseas. Facing intense media interest and many subpoenas, he secretly retired to a ranch in tiny Creston, California, north of San Luis Obispo. Now this is the part that truly gets me.In 1997 this man gets street dedicated to him in Hollywood, "L.Ron Hubbard way". Only in America can a man that lived the last days of his life running from prosecution, get a street named after him. Comemorated on live television with politicians, and some of the richest actors, and performers in the world.

In Closing

I could go on about these people, and this so called religion, but i won't because the deeper I dig into this Pandora's box the more infected I'll become. This religion and it's gestapo tactics are the mirror image enacted by Jim Jones. He started off with seemingly pure intentions later showing his true colors.So I ask the world,"is it going to take the death of 913 people before we decide to hold these people accountable for their behavior?"

Rest in peace Lisa McPherson, rest in peace.

Just a few disturbing words from,
