Patheos: Attacking the Scientology Religion is Contrary to Your Original Purpose

It has long been policy within the Church of Scientology that, “Persons suspected of purely medical illness should be referred to a doctor for competent treatment if such a doctor or treatment exists.”

Dear Editor,

I read Bert Bigelow’s piece on Scientology reflecting his obvious misunderstandings about Scientology and Dianetics and write this letter to set the record straight and to help clear up his confusion.

The claim that anyone in Scientology or Dianetics is denied medical treatment is not only false, but contrary to actual practice.

In fact, it has long been policy within the Church of Scientology that, “Persons suspected of purely medical illness should be referred to a doctor for competent treatment if such a doctor or treatment exists.”

And please, in the future, refer to bona fide resources such as www.dianetics.org or www.scientology.org.

Sincerely,
Rebecca Blair
