The expose by Leah Amini on Scientology reveals a brutal, authoritarian sect, set up by a science fiction writer claiming to be a messiah like Jesus or Mohammed. But his authority came from little green men not God.
With the death of Hubbard, his place was taken by a junior high school drop-out and psychopath David Muscavige. Hubbard did not die of a stroke but merely discarded his body and went to live with the little green men on another galaxy. Haha.
His successor Muscavige believes in terror attacks on followers, forced confessions, re-education, demotion and disconnection. There is no Christian love. The focus is not on the soul of the believer.
It is on the cruel, asset greedy, authoritarian, vicious and fraudulent agenda of the Scientology Gestapo.
Perhaps Hubbard and Miscavige are the anti-Christ we read about in Revelations. This writer is not a Scientologist but merely recognises the authoritarian bullying common to all dictatorships.
Why do Americans allow demagogues as spiritual leaders? There seems to be a cult of personality among spiritual dictators in the USA.
Take Jim Jones of the Guyana cult who killed his followers with poison. Why do Americans follow like sheep? I would never have allowed him to give poison to my family.
Where in the Bible do we read of mass suicide? Those silly people died because of a crazy megalomaniac pastor. The Scientologists have a megalomaniac in Miscavige.
