    Spoken like a true Scientologist! Careful, you'll be a card carrying, forever paying member before you know it.

    Why is a "Scientology" even a section on Websleuths?

    Scientology is just like Christianity, Islam, or any other religious cult.

    No better, and no different.

    Well, my part of Christianity has only marriage as a lifetime contract, and no Billion Year Contract is available. Sadly acceptable to dump the lifetime marriage bond, as well.

    https://www.amazon.com/Billion-Contract-Memoir-Former-Scientologist-ebook/dp/B002UUTGKI

    (Not implying support of Amazon, this was a quick link.)

    Some people do join religious orders and accept a vow of poverty, but these are legal adults AFAIK.

    The descriptions of Sea Org published by anyone outside of Scientology are a description of slavery -- not legal in the US or other modern nations AFAIK. There is no parallel in my denomination.

    Were you raised in a religious practice, or viewing all religious practice as an outsider? If so, which?

    There are detailed accounts of criminal misconduct and convictions of core members easily found in any search of Scientology. It is an organization which has been found guilty of fraud and accused of organized harassment. Perhaps you should research your subject a bit more before making such a broad sweeping statement. In my opinion only, it was naïve.

    To be fair, there are detailed accounts of criminal misconduct and convictions of core members easily found in any search of (insert any religion here, i.e. the Catholic Church ). In my opinion, to think that Scientology is somehow different than any other religion, is naive.

    Excellent post, my friend, @Laughing.
    My Christian religion (United Methodist) does not have any type of religious contract other than lifetime marriage, as well -- and yes, divorces occur with no penalties or church judgements, whatsoever. Support is always there.
    And Sea Org is not a religious experience..
    Lea Remini knows of what she speaks.

    I read Troublemaker earlier this year and I found everything really fascinating. I didn't have much prior knowledge about the Church of Scientology. Good stuff!

    Operation Clambake is online and a real eye opener about Scientology. Excellent information to be had.

    I've always thought she would be that type of person that when she gets mad at someone or something she doesn't let it go. Her character in Save by the bell and King of Queens I feel is very similar to who she is. I love her think she's awesome. Worst person to piss off for scientology. They are not going to be able to bully her to keep her quiet. And it's giving so many victims the courage and place to tell their stories. I'm happy she's been there for those that needed someone. Hope that bastard David and his buddy Tom Cruise leave em alone. Need more celebrities to come out and tell their reasons why they left. I don't understand how blue collar people even afford it

    If you are blue collar and a Scientologist, you have very basic rent, food and not much in the way of worldly goods. All of your disposable income goes to the Church of Scientology. You 'borrow' or 'scam' money from family members who are not members, you piggy back off them by eating at their homes, ask them to purchase basics for you but particularly cash or co-signs that you dont pay. Then, the Scientology folk come around and put pressure on the members to hand over every spare dime. If friends/extended family fail to pay up, they are shunned and dropped from the family, sometimes for the rest of their lives. IMO, MOO, JMO

    This cult ruins families, all to suck money from them and their proper families; very much a result of brainwashing. No original though/critical thinking when they're done with you. IMO, MOO, JMO

    I was glad to hear that John Travolatas late wife did have proper cancer therapy, as that is against their beliefs. Think she was at MD Anderson, centre of excellence.
