Hm... apart from a small Bible quote in my sig, you know nothing of my beliefs nor of my reasons for those beliefs. So nothing personal, but you have no idea what you're talking about.

Anyway, my point was that to a lot of people, Scientology isn't like your typical 'cult' because it is a lot funnier.

But seriously, I don't know a heck of a lot about Scientology, but the bits I do know about just make me honestly wonder who would take it seriously. Anyway...
