Is It Scientology? Is It A Church?

Leaders of the Church of Scientology in France are being placed on trial on charges of participating in fraud. It is the second time in six years the church has faced a court in France. A woman complained she was approached in the street by someone who said he was in the Church of Scientology and he offered her a free personality test. According to the man, she failed the test because she had a poor personality that required “life enhancement” courses, plus vitamins and other pills. A second woman complained her employer was in the Church of Scientology and he pushed her into courses and in the end she wound up getting fired. The seven leaders are charged by the French government with illegal practice of pharmaceutical work because they were selling vitamins and other pills.

One can only wonder how the woman was identified as possessing a “poor personality” since two of the most famous personalities involved in the Church of Scientology are Tom Cruise and John Travolta. If those two individuals are examples of “good personalities” we can assume there are problems in the Church of Scientology’s definition of “good personalities.”

Scientology Faces World Wide Protests

A few hundred protestors will descend on Toronto and a few dozen other cities in order to express their anger at the Church of Scientology. the movement is either an adolescent Internet prank or the real feelings of thousands of young people against a church which has come under fire from many sectors due to its religious beliefs. The cyber activists are being told, “Bring your warm clothes..Do not bring your weapons, or your stupid rowdy troublemaking ass.”Anons, a network of peaceful opponents of the Chruch of Scientology has arranged these protests to occur in several cities. Many were sparked by the Tom Cruise video in which the movie star goes on about how Scientology represents “the authoritities on getting people off drugs” and rehabilitating criminals. Mark Bunker, a TV journalist who was critical of the Scientology movement, urged peaceful protest. He was subject to Scientology demonstrators picketing his home and holding up signs, “Mark Bunker is a religious bigot” because of his critical remarks.

Scientology is based on having positive attitudes in life. Its origin makes no sense since it is a jumble about aliens dying on Earth and so on. For some reason, it attracts many celebrities.
