Uh huh. From what I've seen this is utter bullshit.

But if you stray from their path, woe be to you.

Yep. That's why nine of its leaders, including Mary Sue Hubbard, were sent to jail.

Ah yes, Ethics Officers. The nice people whose real job is to make sure that you're not doing anything "unethical", where unethical is defined as anything that interferes with the Church's mission to make money. Ethics Officers are amongst the most unethical people on this planet.

The Tax Code.

Read: Anybody who does anything that isn't approved by God (LRH) is evil, bad, and must be punished.

>Is it just me or does all this seem like rumor and gossip?

No, it's well-substantiated fact. There are innumerable sources, and only those who have been blinded by Scientology are incapable of seeing these facts for what they are.

>Go read Dianetics.

No, read _A Piece of Blue Sky_, by Jon Atack. This will *really* tell you what Dianetics is. -- You know, my cat makes a "forgach" sound right when she coughs up a hair ball. What a coincidence... -- James R. Purdon III (purdon@athena.mit.edu), in talk.abortion
