Scientologists, gullible? Would they fall for a felon saying he's the returned L. Ron Hubbard? - 2018-04-16
(He is risen?)
Secrecy is one of the things that most makes Scientology what it is. Although we know plenty about the origins of Scientology, its underlying materials, and much of its controversial history thanks to countless media exposes and court cases and defections, Scientologists themselves are still very tight-lipped about what Scientology is and how it works.
And that's one of the reasons we're glad that there's such a thing as "independent Scientology," those former church members who got fed up with leader David Miscavige and his heavy-handed ways, and went off to practice Scientology on their own. No longer under the control of the church, "indies" or "freezoners" will often talk freely of things like body thetans, the "OT" levels, and other really strange and bizarre things that church members try to keep quiet.
