I don’t know much about Scientology. My problem with your post is that after reading it, I still don’t know much about it.
Yes, you provided a link. But, after reading just the title, it was obvious that was not the place to start. (The title “A New Face of Evil” just didn’t ring objective to me … for some reason.)
Yes, you said they control people with mind tricks, but it appears to be nothing more than an assumption. You don’t understand how someone could possibly want to be a Scientologist … so they must be brainwashed. Again, that isn’t the way to start learning.
So, in the end, I can’t support something as extreme as passing laws against their religious practice.
On the other hand, there has to be clear reason for any sort of government support. For example, if tax money was given to the church, it would have to be used in the interest of the public – by running a soup kitchen, or housing a homeless shelter, or something like that.
As for tax breaks, the requirements should be the same for them as it is for any other non-profit organization. Is that not the way it is now?
And, lastly, your comments on Mormons made me chuckle.
We have been giving the Mormons a hammering over the last few days.
This statement is just silly on multiple levels.
We must be careful not to pick ineffectually at them as we have with the Mormons, because that will only make them stronger.
So, instead we should be harsher to make sure they don’t survive? Maybe if we get all of the governors to issue extermination orders … it just might work!
