Scientology has been a mystery to many of us on the outside because the group seems to be pretty exclusive. However, when someone decides that this sort of organization is a “scam” or a “sham” then we just have to know why! It’s one of those stories that manages to spark an interest in the truth. So, if you have always wanted to know more about Scientology, here are 36 burning questions that are finally answered:
1. How are children treated in Scientology?
As old spirits in little bodies who have returned to Scientology… children are treated as adults.
2. Is Tom Cruise really the “Messiah?”
To the “Church,” yes. Parishioners believe that he is singlehandedly changing the planet because that is what the “Church” is telling them.
3. What’s is the single most horrible thing you encountered in the “church”?
I would say the “church’s” Fair Game policy, and how they systematically go after anyone who publicly speaks out against them. Anyone who speaks out against the “church” is seen as an enemy.
4. Over the past 10 years, I’ve seen my parents get deeper and deeper into Scientology. Decent reasoning, science and logic have done nothing to convince them to question the church. From someone who left, is there anything a loved one can do to help a brainwashed member see the truth, without ruining the relationship completely?
If you want to get them out there is no way to do it nicely. There is no way to do it quietly. You have to challenge them by saying, “If you can think for yourself, if you have truly accomplished what scientology says you have accomplished, you should be able to speak freely on any subject. If you have completed the “PTS/SP Course” you should be able to confront and shatter suppression.” You should ask them how is it then that you can’t watch a movie called Going Clear or look on the internet if you are the elite of the planet and handling the planet’s ills if you can’t think for yourself. I only hope that your challenge will get them to simply look.
