Blog: Some Thoughts on Scientology Criticism - 2017-08-03
Let's talk a bit about the Church of Scientology's current campaigns to dispel rumors and lies about its organizations and members. One can divide Scientology supporters into roughly five categories:
(1) Scientologists, who obviously are going to speak in support of what they think their organization is and does. It's quite surprising to many of them to discover how much of the Church's real history and activities they are unaware of until they leave the Church and do some research.
(2) Ex-Scientologists who are still caught up in the Scn mindset and feel that they need to speak in favor of Scientology's practices or methods or who still feel that L. Ron Hubbard was a genius researcher and humanitarian philosopher. The kindest thing that can be said about such people is that they have not availed themselves of the information available to them which would show them that Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard are no such thing. The facts on this are crystal clear and hardly up for debate, but sometimes it takes people a while to come around to accepting the truth of those facts.
