F0.png Critical Q&A #164 June 17, 2018, Chris Shelton, Critical Thinker at Large

The weekly show where I answer viewer questions left for me in the comment sections of my Q&A videos or sent to me at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I answer are:

(1) If I understand correctly, the Sea Org is a paramilitary organization loosely modeled after the U.S. Navy as Hubbard knew it during World War II. Most military forces have policies on haircuts and facial hair. The U.S. Navy, in particular, has a long on-again-off-again relationship with beards; over the years, they have been repeatedly allowed and then banned again (the ban presently in force was instituted in 1984). Also, unlike the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force, the Navy doesn't allow moustaches. Anyway, my question: what, if any, is the Sea Org policy on haircuts and facial hair?

(2) Are you concerned with Jada Pinket's Red Table Talk. It appears to be a new way to sell Scientology without saying the word. Check out her discussion on raising kids as adults.
