    Link: The Cult Of Scientology: One Woman`s Struggle - Ramana Dienes-Browning was once a member of Scientology. This is her story of her time in there and how she escaped.

    Scientology can say all they want, but they aren`t fooling anyone.

    All religion is bullsht, but Scientology has the aroma of a chimpanzee`s post-curry diarrhoea.

    Until some of the jokers running these slavery programmes end up in jail doing serious time for the abuse they inflict on vulnerable people, nothing will change.

    Bullsh|t Gerry, I know of no mainstream Christian church that demands you divorce your family, enslaves people, makes them sign billion year contracts or brainwashes their adherents.

    >>>Bullsh|t Gerry, I know of no mainstream Christian church that demands you divorce your family, enslaves people, makes them sign billion year contracts or brainwashes their adherents. <<<


    So, I take it you`ve never heard of Jehovah`s Witnesses, Islam or Christianity then? Look up the way Magdelenes were treated in living memory in Ireland if you`re deluded enough to think that your own religion of Christianity is above this sort of abusive behaviour.

    But of course you don`t *see* it: you`re *within* it, and that`s what brainwashing is. This woman and her mother didn`t see what Scientology were doing whilst she was in their grasp.

    Actually CrakrJak, aside from the Million year contract, I can`t see much difference. They`re not expecting you to divorce your family, just those members of your family that don`t subscribe to the tenants of Scientology.

    Damn, I`m actually curious now briandarf. Tell us!

    Though in all honesty, I don`t understand how Scientology still exists. I mean it has been (repeatedly) proven to be a fraud, has little to no benefits and proavtively encourages psychotic levels of abuse. As a society we`ve also made it (for the most part) socially taboo to be a scientologist, which seems to have done little to damage it.

    Oh balls I think I may have Christianity and Scientology mixed up. Oh well, point still stands.

    @Linkenberger

    That makes me think of one of my favourite "House" quotes,

    "If you could reason with religious people, there would be no religious people."
