The top 10 secret celebrity Scientologists May 31, 2007

Posted by Al in : bizarre,people , trackback

This is not a great list, by any means. However, it is surprising how many Scientologists there are in the world; particularly celebrity Scientologists. I find this surprising as, having read some L. Ron Hubbard novels before, I cannot believe anyone could listen to this claptrap and then go on and actually believe it to be true. It is very convenient that it costs a lot of money to advance in Scientology; which makes it a perfect religion for those stars who have lots of money and are willing to try to buy themselves happiness, or salvation. I only hope there is some form of purgatory for them to spend their time in once their dead, as this is about the only way they will ever learn the following the teachings of a third-rate SF writer is not a good way to live your life.

Hubbard’s novels have nothing to do with the Scientology philosophy. Benjamin Franklin wrote fiction too – but his works as a politician and philosopher are not related.

It doesn’t cost a lot of money to advance in Scientology. Scientologists generally donate about 10% of one’s income, like any other religion. And it doesn’t *buy* you salvation, it buys you access to courses and counseling, which (along with your own work on yourself) is what gets you spiritual improvement.

It is easy to dismiss others’ philosophies when you don’t bother to actually know anything about them.

Sincerely,
Greg
Scientologist and proud of it

If believing that aliens have been interfering with humanity’s brains for the last few millenia doesn’t sound like the worst SF claptrap from the sixties (which is what L. Ron Hubbard used to write) then you probably do need counselling.

I’m sorry, but I don’t have time for any religion, and especially not for a half-baked concoction made up by a third rate SF writer. Just face facts – you have approximately 60 years on this earth to enjoy yourself and make other people’s life a pleasure. Once you’re dead, you are no more. There is no afterlife, there are no aliens, you will not achieve any kind of salvation from spending your money advancing the cause of scientology and taking their courses. You would be better off giving that money to a worthwhile charity, such as Oxfam, or Grrenpeace, or any other charity that is actually doing real, helpful work to help people or animals who have not had the benfits we have all had. Stop kidding yourself.

Greg, how much does an OT VIII cost? I’m tempted and have alot of money to throw at anything that arouses my insatiable desires. The idea of ‘Advanced Technology’ fuels my lust for money, power and control. Let me know please.
With that, a quote from the masterful Tom Cruise –
“Some people, well, if they don’t like Scientology, well, then, fuck you. Really. Fuck you. Period.”
