Thank you for saying this out loud. I lost my daughter to this “religion” that tears families apart.

To echo/piggy-back on the theme of your article, from Wikipedia:

In Janet Reitman's INSIDE SCIENTOLOGY she quotes Hubbard: "Never let anyone be half-minded about being Scientologists," he wrote in Keeping Scientology Working. "When somebody enrolls, consider he or she has joined for the duration of the universe – never permit an 'open-minded approach'."

Scientology: ALWAYS WORSE THAN YOU THINK.

Why is Scientology considered a *religion* in the US? In most other countries it’s considered a CULT.

Interesting information. I personally consider all organized religion to be various forms of a cult, with a spectrum of fanaticism. They all profess to save a person but the ulterior motive is ALWAYS power and control and greed. Always.

They ALL are destructive and prevent Enlightenment
