What in hell are you babbling about now? Is everything a conspiracy with you? Take off the tin hat and come out of your bunker.

Wow, I was shocked to find out how much money the Scientologists contributed to the Democratic party.As for Waco, I assume the deaths of all those children was simply a horrible accident.

Didn't you hear? The government had to kill the children by burning them alive to save them from "abuse".

Gee Seven, what is Bible camp a week or two? Scientologists are die hards and from what I've read from some people in Hollywood that broke ties with them, they make bible camp look downright fun. Bible camp, 2 weeks, Scientologists-lifers.
I am not defending Scientologist as they are following myths just as Christians are, but if you wish us to believe the kids at bible camp are not lifers.......

No one is forcing these people to do this, so the right to religious freedom must be upheld. Unlike Waco, no illegal weapons are involved with either bible camp or Scientologists. Are they all a bunch of brainwashed sheep? Yes.

And the criteria here is astonishing. It isn't even imminent plot" - Charles Krauthammer referencing the Obama drone warfare.
Oh, so now the war on terror is bothering you? Great, now the democrats can call the republicans the weak ones who will not stand up to the terrorists. Enjoy your time out of power.

One of the good things about this country, is that its possible to state an opinion, without going to prison for that opinion.At least for now, in any event.

Sounds good to me as long as weapons aren't involved. Force by using a weapon definitely takes away from the free will of any religion or no belief in religion. However, when you looke at high profile people in the church of scientology, I've heard Katie Holmes and Nicole Kidman both comment that they were followed and photographed by "church security", intimidated etc. Now I don't know how familiar you are with the Baptist, Methodist or Presbyterian Churches around you, but I believe they don't spend money on spying and intimidation tactics. Who has church security on the payroll? Are you a brainwashed sheep? Yes. Precious, we're all sheep.

I would advise more people to educate themselves and listen less. That's what's wrong with the youth today. No one is being taught critical thinking. Todays youth are not making decisions for themselves. They are being given pre-selected choices. I hire people all the time and I can assure you today's 20 something generation can be scary.
I can agree with most of this, but I do not limit it to the young or just to the times. All of history has shown this to be true.
Maybe if you were listening more, you would know this.

I do agree the Scientologists look to be using intimidation tactics and the sort, and that is terrible, but legal as far as I know. Freedom of religion has its price. That price is a bunch of brainwashed people.

<quoted text>i would say because Obamacare is going to put them all out of business by creating an unlevel playing field where the govt owns the ball and the field and they determine who wins (them) and who loses (the insurance companies). The govt shouldn't be in the insurance business, the real estate business, the transportation business, etc..., those jobs should be done by the private sector!
Did it put insurance companies out of business in Massachusetts? Nope. Got any other speculations?

Mike, most freedom has a price, it comes down to whatever you're willing to pay. You must bare in mind, religion is not the only source of brainwashing and you're a perfect example. You have bought into everything anyone with "psychologist" by their name says and you know what, psychologists are well versed in brainwashing. Could you be a sheep too? I think so.

Anyone who believes that someone else is responsible for their safety, may well be"brainwashed"!
