E) Scientology is one big money sink - the only religion I know of that makes you pay money to read its scripture.

"Iíd like to start a religion. Thatís where the money is." -L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology

The Church of Scientology is a ruthless criminal organization, so it's pretty plausible that he was murdered.

I have to agree with Defrag on this one.

There have been tons of circumstantial cases where it appears that Scientologists have commited murder. Never enough proof though, as creepy as they are.

Today, in church, our Pastor commented that his brother had bought a watch in Vatican City that had been blessed by the Pope. He was very excited to get the gift but noted, upon finally getting it, that it was running about 4 centuries slow. Ok, yeah, I laughed....

But anyway, this thread really got me thinking...am I going to have tacos or a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch.





(honestly, this seems like a police matter where this incident happened and I can't see that my view is going to make any difference one way or the other...Scientology seem, by and large, to be a light beer version of Heavens Gate)

Maybe the Scientoligist Space Planes shot suicide rays at his prison cell to make him suicidal! With suicide!

I dunno man. Travolta is also a scientology member. He takes it seriously. Very, very seriously. And i'm pretty sure Cruise does too. I remember reading news about how travolta refused interviews and movie parts from people who thought and told travolta that scientology was a joke.

That suicide should have been more obviously done, like Gary Webb, who shot himself in the head, twice.

Don't you know? Saddam's sons also committed suicide. It took them about 30 shots each, but they finally did it!

G) Scientology scares the bejebus out of me and I'm just goint to steer clear of this whole subject.

Some nights I'll get bored and read Operation Clambake and go hide under my sheets. I have a hard time beliving that some of that stuff happens.
