Are Scientologists Told What to Think?
That idea is especially ridiculous because, as a person studies and applies Scientology to more and more areas of life, their ability to think analytically and rationally and make positive decisions becomes easier and easier.

Reader Beware: Fake News Is Cheap and Easy

Leah Remini: Without Scientology “I Would Probably Be an Animal”
