Thetalko.com Discrimination Misses Boat on Scientology Religion

Scientology is a truly unique contemporary religion—the only major religion to emerge in the 20th century and flourish in the 21st. While it owes a spiritual debt to Eastern religions, it was born in the West and its religious beliefs are expressed in the technological language of the mid 20th century. Scientology adds a precise and workable technology for applying spiritual concepts to every aspect of life.

Kate Aenlle,

Your “15 Celeb Eerie Confessions About Scientology” is composed entirely of innuendo, rumor and fiction. Thus, it is also bigoted toward the new, vibrant and extremely popular religion of millions. The real story of Scientology is entirely different, and is told on www.scientology.org:

Scientology is a truly unique contemporary religion—the only major religion to emerge in the 20th century and flourish in the 21st. While it owes a spiritual debt to Eastern religions, it was born in the West and its religious beliefs are expressed in the technological language of the mid 20th century. Scientology adds a precise and workable technology for applying spiritual concepts to every aspect of life.

Scientology holds that Man is basically good, and that his spiritual salvation depends upon himself, his relationships with his fellows and his attainment of brotherhood with the universe. In that regard, Scientology is a religious philosophy in the oldest and most profound sense of the word, for it is concerned with no less than the full rehabilitation of Man’s innate spiritual self—his capabilities, his awareness, and his certainty of his own immortality.

In the wider arena, through the spiritual salvation of the individual, Scientology seeks the ultimate transformation—“A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where Man is free to rise to greater heights, are the aims of Scientology.”

L. Ron Hubbard, the Founder of the religion, wrote tens of millions of words on Scientology. His works include dozens of books, dozens more encyclopedic volumes containing thousands upon thousands of individual writings, and nearly 2,500 recorded lectures. He recorded the many varied mental and spiritual phenomena he encountered in his search for the truth. Out of this vast ocean of material, Mr. Hubbard distilled the fundamental axioms that comprise the Scientology religion.

Anyone wishing to find out more about Scientology should read Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, or any other Scientology book by L. Ron Hubbard. They are widely available in bookstores, libraries and at www.scientology.org.

Sincerely,
