This will answer your questions

In all honesty I want to hear from an actual partaker, not an outside source. There are so many outside sources but i never hear about inside sources. (PS that was an amazing episode of south park)

They actually do a really good job at summing up how the religion was started, believe it or not.

It is a religion,but nobody has the right to criticize others,especially when it is only based on your opinion.And opinions are not to be debated with because that is just silly

I find it bizarre, but I have met Scientologist when I was taking my World Religions course. They weren't bad people though they did leave out ALOT of information during there visit, but if it works for them then it works for them. You could worship a jar of peanut butter I wouldn't care just don't shove your peanut butter idol down my throat and we are all good.

I have an open mind when it comes to religions, but I have to agree with him. The leaders and high ranking members of the church have murdered, stalked and brainwashed people since it's start. They go after people with money and convince them to join their church and then convince them to donate all of it to the church and it's causes. They have even kidnapped people and gotten away with it! There are NUMEROUS videos on Youtube where ex-members speak out against the church. A lot of them even have their faces covered and voices distorted because the church will literally go after anyone who speaks out against them and stalk/threaten them and their families.

I understand that, but just as you are allowed your opinions on Scientology, so are others. I've seen and watched videos where people say that it has helped them greatly. There's always going to be people for and against something, no need to be disrespectful to something as sensitive as another's religion. Who knows the situations of those who are speaking out against, perhaps they just ran out o fmoney or did something that didn't follow with the belief system. -shrugs-

Cults deserve no respect. And this one enslaves their members who have no money. Scumbags get zero respect.

They enslave all their members? No. All of them are scumbags (how could you really know, you can't)? No.

Scientology is a made up religion by people who watched too much science fiction or don't believe in God...but believe in Aliens creating us. Personally, I think it's a crock of bs and an insult to even dare compare it to Christianity or Jewish religion or any other actual REAL Religion that believes in Biblical God. Not even close to the same thing.

Scientology is a viable religion just like any of the others, it's no more crazy then anything else.

Just a more modern take on trying to understand the human soul. Oh & yes recruitment staff in Scientology centers are trained like a lot of cults to use hidden methods of covert hypnotism & suggestive buzz words. So be careful & observant when talking to these people

If you read more carefully you would see that I stated that they enslaved their members who have no money i.e. the poor ones, not all of their memebers. Try reading next time without the overly-emotional filter. Cults get zero respect and scumbags (cult leaders and hierarchy) get zero respect. Any reasonably intelligent person not reading with troll-vision knew how I meant that. Perhaps there is a Nazi or KKK site where you can troll and defend their organizations.

Best of luck.

Still so aggressive, you sound like you're angry at the world.

Perhaps as you grow older you will mature and be able to get your opinion across without being disrespectful, but we'll see.

There is no sound inherent in text so your assumption of my anger via a belief that you "heard" something is likely you projecting.

I was simply succinct and explanatory of things that you obviously needed clarification concerning. My analogous suggestion to you concerning similar cult sites was simply highlighting your defense of an insidious organization and your obvious trolling.

Perhaps as you grow older you will mature and refrain from passive-aggressive, condescending, rhetorical question laced, posts and the subsequent, passive-agressive hypocritical, posts.

That fact that you needed to reach to Nazi and KKK comparisons are absolutely absurd, not mention incredibly offensive and insensitive to those affected by the two disgusting groups. Simply, there is no comparison between those two and a religious organization which you seem to have a bias against.

Regarding me defending an insidious organization, you're incorrect, I was defending the need to respect the religious beliefs of another, or at the very least not be disrespectful towards them. People are usually taught at a young age that others are going to have different views on various topics and that you should try to understand why they feel the way they do, not just post aggressive and blanket comments. You ignore the people who have been legitimately helped by Scientology and would rather highlight those who you say have been brainwashed and enslaved. There was no trolling, on my part anyway.

And you still can't be respectful, it's really not that difficult.
