Scientology is a cult, NOT a religion. For it to have tax-exempt status is ridiculous.

Yep.

Cult.

If you HAVE to pay money to belong, it's not a church.

That news article is dated Oct. 2009. The latest is that the Minneapolis org is closed, The St. Paul museum site is still under construction--forever, it seems, and disrupting parking space in downtown St.Paul and that there is temporary, small org somewhere in the skyway. Never fear, MN anons are already planning their protests for St. Paul, after a very successful "Rawktober" finale protest on the weekend of 10/10/10 (see You tube footage- its' excellent). If you need more background on all of this visit mnraid.org . The MN anons really ROCK and continue to be committed, creative, and a force of nature!

I took my son to a Church of Scientology because he had trouble in school - couldn't read at an acceptable level, teachers couldn't help. He learned how to study in the Church of Scientology and he's well on his way to his 4 year degree at university.

So I guess it's ok with people that a "Church" says it eats the body and drinks the blood of a guy who died 2,000 years ago. It's ok to sell "heaven" for 10% of your earnings.

Go figure on who the cult is.

I know of a man who couldn't keep his hands off the throats of young women uintil they were dead. They put him in prison whee he never choked another woman, however he died of Aids.. I guess it all depends on the environment.

Nice....how much did you pay the "Church" for this miracle??

Me? I helped my kid by studying with him....you know, parental responsibility??

Didnt have to pray with my Visa, or wait for "Zetans" to float down in thier little spacehip to carry him off to another planet.

When you want to study the "Church of Scientology", do you look in the Fantasy, or Science Fiction section of a book store??

I heard that the tragic death of John Travolta's young son could have been prevented with medication, but because of his affiliation with the church, he was not allowed the drugs and died. I don't know if this is true, but I do remember Tom Cruise railing against legal drugs to anyone who would listen. He's the poster boy for Scientology.

HERE'S ONE FOR YOU!

What would people say if the Scientology folks said they could talk to an invisible guy in outer space And they talked about building arks, feeding a bunch of people with a few fish, and they went on about parting the seas, resurrection and all sorts of crazy stuff.

What a laugh that would be!

When you want to study the "Catholic church" where do you look? Same place, I'd say...

Ok, your comment might be witty if it hadn't already been said before... and also if it pertained to the actual post you are quoting. Nowhere here does it say anything about the catholic church anywhere in that post. You are the one singling it out. The original poster was merely commenting on parental responsibility.

How much would the church of scientology charge him to make him slim? Is there a family rate? What if the whole family was bitter?

didn't i see you post this in another thread? yeah, original... and as a matter of fact, I'm average... perfectly average. But luckily for me, that only applies to weight. I obviously am far more intelligent than you could ever hope to be.

You, of course, know that the Church of Scientology TRIED to get their "amazing Study Tech" into public schools. And what happened? It was tested and found NOT TO WORK. Yes, it doesn't work.

This "amazing" tech isn't in ANY non-Scientology school because IT DOESN'T WORK.

You see, in the REAL world, you have to back up your grandiose claims with ACTUAL PROOF. Just BELIEVING isn't enough -- in the REAL world.

It's headquartered at Charlie Sheen's house.

You're right icouldusesomehel p-you COULD use some help. Try getting out of Long Beach and you probably won't need to pay for therapy to fix your need to insult and bully people.
HollywoodRon: there is nothing more powerful than a parent spending time with a child, reading and writing with him or her. Have fun with your son reading and analyzing the sports pages, the comics, fantasy novels like Harry Potter, joke books, Word Records Books, Ripley's Believe it or Not, etc. Just 30 minutes a day will work miracles with your son. Also, have him make shopping lists, thank you notes, letters to grandparents, write ghost stories, letters home from camp, etc. Also, let him see YOU reading and writing and enjoying it. All of this is free and can be done anytime at home. Plus it will make him feel that you feel he is an important person worthy of your time.
P.S. Study Tech has now been banned in the U.S. from all public schools.
