Blog: Critical Q&A 135 - 2017-11-19
The weekly show where I answer viewer questions. This week, the questions taken up are:
(1) Are you able to explain what L. Ron Hubbard meant by making a "Perfect Duplicate"?
(2) I had a question regarding how children are raised in Scientology. I was raised in the Mormon faith, and distinctly remember a strong emphasis being placed on having ample child-friendly materials. Though there was still plenty of studying plain scripture, much of the doctrine / stories / church history were delivered to kids through things like cartoons and activity pages. Many of these were contained in their own magazine just for young children called The Friend, whose soft edges and simple language contrasted starkly with the boring repetitive slag that was The Ensign. Things like "connect the dots to form the golden plates" and "color in the prophets from the Book of Mormon" were common sights.
