Why is Everyone Mad at Scientology?

Just watched a BBC Panorama docu called The Secrets of Scientology. A friend had sent it to me telling me it’s very interesting.

Here’s where our differences came up- she found it unbelievable these ppl think they’re a religion, I find it unbelievable that anyone thinks they aren’t.

As far as I’m concerned they have all components of a religion:

  1. A theory not supported by any evidence that contradicts scientific findings to-date
  2. Blind followers that pay money and have other people tell them what to do
  3. Teaches ppl the meaning of life, gathers their confessions and uses them against these ppl

So then, why is Christianity a well respected religion, but Scientology viewed as a cult? Because Scientology threatens to take believers away from what is ‘mainstream Christianity’ these days.

just another retarded believer

Man was that an easy one to solve!

    Interesting argument, sure, its a religion – i mean, people believe in it, as a set of cultural symbolics and higher powers, blah blah blah.
    But I have to say that the fact the the guy who founded the religion in the 1950s was a science fiction writer and we know he got ridiculously rich because of it – kind of makes you wonder… I mean, in this case there is no doubt as to whose a quacking loony 🙂

    Oh, and i guess people are mad at scientologists because they kill journalists and are super secretive – that usually raises eyebrows.
