A friend of mine has been rather vocal in his criticism of Scientology. He has received death threats. These are, in case you didn't know, illegal.

There are a number of cases of people attempting to reveal corruption in the highest levels of the 'Church' who have had their lives threatened.

'The most law abiding organization on this planet'? Get real, you are neck and neck with the KKK for last place.

It's just you.

I have read Dianetics. I find more substance in the average Flat Earther publication. If Dianetics is such hot shit, if clears can do all these amazing things, it should be dead easy to prove it. I *can* be convinced that you have something. Half-assed assertion won't do it though (regardless of the number of exclamation points you add). Why not present us with some evidence?
