I more or less agree with your assessment, and I'm one of the anti-scientology folks. I do not post negative comments about Scientology because it is a religion/philosophy. I believe that L. Ron Hubbard and the CoS have rooked and manipulated people to no end. That pisses me off. It's possible that people do get some help from Scientology, but many are being ripped off in a big way.

Read Jon Atack's _A Piece of Blue Sky_. The unsavory nature of the church is revealed in full.
