You learn something new every day.

"A recent Rolling Stone article about Scientology reports that its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, felt that gays 'should be taken from … society as rapidly as possible' because 'no social order will survive which does not remove these people from its midst.'"

A-ha. See? I had no idea.

And THAT must be why Tom Cruise insists on remaining closeted.

Love this post!

Man oh man do I detest Scientology. I know, it's not even REMOTELY PC to criticize a religion, but this ain't no religion. I have no hard and fast rules for defining the "true faith". Still, any so-called religion that started as a get-rich-quick scheme is suspect. Did you know that is literally how Scientology began? L. Ron Hubbard is on record as saying, while still a hack sci-fi writer, that the best way to make a bundle is to start a religion. Then he wrote "Dianetics." Hmmmm . . .

I've seen what the brainwashing has done to two friends. Not pretty. Your post about Hubbard's homophobia only confirms my opinion. I think Tom Cruise's career suffered serious damage since his Scientology-induced meltdown a couple of years ago -- picking on America's Sweetheart, Brooke Shields? I feel sorry for Katie Holmes. God forbid she should suffer post-partum depression after delivering (allegedly) Tom's baby.

Whew. End of rant. Sorry.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your comment was kinder and gentler than this . . .
