    What a terrible and scurrilous attack on a noble and helpful religion What a libel against its honest and self effacing founder and prophet, L Ron Hubbard And upon its current and not at all insane leader, David Miscavige, who is by no means a sadistic tyrant And upon Tom Cruise, who is not at all a megalomaniacal weirdo Psstis everyone gone Is it safe Okay, I really liked this book It s a hard hitting expos of Scientology that has to be read to be believed That first paragraph above What a terrible and scurrilous attack on a noble and helpful religion What a libel against its honest and self effacing founder and prophet, L Ron Hubbard And upon its current and not at all insane leader, David Miscavige, who is by no means a sadistic tyrant And upon Tom Cruise, who is not at all a megalomaniacal weirdo Psstis everyone gone Is it safe Okay, I really liked this book It s a hard hitting expos of Scientology that has to be read to be believed That first paragraph above was just a feeble attempt on my part to ward off retribution and harassment by the Church of Scientology for expressing a negative opinion

    I have really mixed feelings about this book On the one hand, I don t want to give it a bad rating, because I don t think it s a bad book, and I really appreciate all the time and effort Wright and hundreds of other people seriously read the acknowledgements put into investigating Scientology He is almost painfully even handed, even if the rain on the roof effect of the constant footnotes cementing the Wall of Denial the church is trying to put up around his findings Tom Cruise has neve I have really mixed feelings about this book On the one hand, I don t want to give it a bad rating, because I don t think it s a bad book, and I really appreciate all the time and effort Wright and hundreds of other people seriously read the acknowledgements put into investigating Scientology He is almost painfully even handed, even if the rain on the roof effect of the constant footnotes cementing the Wall of Denial the church is trying to put up around his findings Tom Cruise has never met that person, the church would never pimp for Tom Cruise, Tom Cruise has never had a motorcycle, Tom Cruise may in fact be a holographic projection is annoying.But.his main informant is Paul Haggis, who was a top celebrity member for nearly four decades, and who practiced an amazing level of denial and compartmentalization, until his love for his daughters punched through it To be fair, everyone at the higher levels of Scientology practiced this kind of extreme dissociation But this is insane, and I m not seeing anything like healing the sick, and people are actually being beaten and imprisoned.but my whole family and society is here, and I m clearly the only one who feels this way, so I ll just keep quiet and pretend and buy the audit courses bundled so I don t have to deal with it It is an amazing if probably unintended portrait of the powerful role denial has in keeping people places they realize they shouldn t be in but desperately want or need to be in I find Paul Haggis personally annoying because he honestly seems like just the kind of guy who would never think about racism until his Porsche got carjacked on Wiltshire there is a loving, four pages long, detailed description of Crash, surely one of the most self indulgent movies ever made If you ve read Wright s New Yorker profile of Haggis or the Maureen Orth piece about the Courtship of Katie Holmes , that s the basic structure for this book There is much, muchabout Tom Cruise s high flying lifestyle than I ever wanted to know Tom Cruise wanted a nickel plated motorcycle Tom Cruise got a Montblanc fountain pen carved out of a eucalyptus burl Tom Cruise closed down Rockefeller Center so he could arrange a skating date I DON T CARE.I m not sorry I bought this book, because I want to support critiques of Scientology, but it s just not very informative or enlightening In a way it s a blessing some of the atrocities are so sketchily reported the breakup of families, forced abortions, spouses informing on each other, slave labour that would rival Communist prison camps because just realizing how terrible Scientology is for everyone but a few hundred people on top is upsetting I wanted less dwelling on the psyche of the rich white privileged man who felt really bad about being in denial for nearly four decades, andof the actual stories about people like Paulette Cooper and Lisa McPherson, or even justfrom Haggis own daughters You can read about what it was like to be brought up inside Scientology here Not quite recommended, but I didn t dislike it, exactly

    This is not a church or a religious organization, the labor minister, Norbert Blum, told Maclean s magazine Scientology is a machine for manipulating human beingsYes, I already saw the HBO documentary Going Clear based on this hefty tome by Lawrence Wright, and so it was obvious that I d just have to read the book that made it possible After all, for any dedicated reader the idea that a picture is worth a thousand words simply means that there are thousands of words that should beThis is not a church or a religious organization, the labor minister, Norbert Blum, told Maclean s magazine Scientology is a machine for manipulating human beingsYes, I already saw the HBO documentary Going Clear based on this hefty tome by Lawrence Wright, and so it was obvious that I d just have to read the book that made it possible After all, for any dedicated reader the idea that a picture is worth a thousand words simply means that there are thousands of words that should be read instead.When I was just a kid, I had a huge crush on Tom Cruise It was in one of the countless magazine snippets on him that I first heard about Scientology It seemed strange and I forgot all about it Then there was that South Park episode that made me laugh Since then I ve spent a few minutes here and there on horrifically fascinated online searches about this strange blend of business and religion, but this documentary was what made me really want to look intoAfter all, not every day you come across such an inconceivably bizarre phenomenon that managed to survive several decades and amass quite a monetary value in the processIn the United States, constitutional guarantees of religious liberty protect the church from actions that might otherwise be considered abusive or in violation of laws in human trafficking or labor standardsWright does not spend as much time on Scientology as a religion after all, bizarre and religions tend to frequently go hand in hand He focuses on the celebrity worship, money making schemes and the culture of intimidation and espionage which he lays out through the examination of the lives of a few key players and a fewperipheral players victims throughout the years Scientology has been around We get the stories of those who tried to expose the misdeeds of the organization only to suffer the consequences of intimidation and smear campaign, with clear criminality in all those actions Paulette Cooper being one of the victims We get a thorough exploration of L Ron Hubbard s life as well as a look at where the current leader David Miscavige comes from There are the stories of the former enforcer and now a loud anti Miscavige voice Marty Rathbun Many of the pages are spent on Paul Haggis, an Oscar winning director and screenwriter, once a devout Scientologist who finally left the church once the bigotry he felt affected his his daughters made him go to internet for some research on the church the activity that is very much discouraged John Travolta gets a bit of attention but nothing even close to the amount of pages dedicated to the current loud pro Scientology mouthpiece Tom Cruise The focus of the organization on the cult of celebrity and feeding on the Hollywood culture is interesting given how much all the events that Wright lays out read like they were taken from any number of Hollywood productions We have large spying schemes and quiet takeovers of the government and companies power structures, the men in black showing up on the doorstep to intimidate and coerce, the threats and kidnappings, the physical violence and the bordering on absurdity cult of personality, and the daring escapes within the inch of the survivors lives.I personally found the experience of reading the footnotes after each chapter quite humorous Every allegation that Wright poses is followed by a footnote, the majority of which come to any variation of,The church denies the allegation Nope, never happened The church leaders had nothing to do with any of it and claim ignoranceOf course they do They know nothing, Jon Snow.It s a very thorough investigation into the phenomenon that is Scientology told through the experiences of the most prominent figures and the loudest voices in the organization There is something evensinister in the way the scariest, most unbelievable parts are so casually reported the beatings, the humiliations, the breakup of families and friendships, the forced abortions, the slave labor I think Wright succeeds at conveying how commonplace all this is within the tenets of the organization and I commend him for that.Now I just wish I could back in time and have a 10 year me pick a different celebrity crush, the one not too blinded by the gilded walls of a very well thought out cage Sorry, Mr Cruise, but blergh

    I can t lie I fell in love with Jesus at a young age.I was about 6 years old and my parents took me to see Jesus Christ Superstar That was about the extent of my religious education.I was conflicted to who wasdreamyJesusor Judas In the end Jesus won out not because of his morals as a 6 year old I was attracted to both but I am afraid I was justattracted to JesusI mean seriously do you want to align yourself with the troubled man who hung himself from a tree or I can t lie I fell in love with Jesus at a young age.I was about 6 years old and my parents took me to see Jesus Christ Superstar That was about the extent of my religious education.I was conflicted to who wasdreamyJesusor Judas In the end Jesus won out not because of his morals as a 6 year old I was attracted to both but I am afraid I was justattracted to JesusI mean seriously do you want to align yourself with the troubled man who hung himself from a tree or the guy that at the end was resurrected and had a cute flock of sheep following him about I picked the sheep guywith the dreamy eyes and the one that sung Hosanna Hey Sanna Sanna Hosanna It was upliftingeven though really if I was to look at it now Judas had a far superior voice and presence.Because todayas an adultI look at things logically rather than emotionally I look at fact vs fictionAnd factually Judas kicked Jesus s ass in that movie as far as talent Today as an adult I am also an agnostic A stance that most people see to be rather wishy washy I am not so far reaching to say I am an atheistI will never be one to call myself a GOD believer I am on the fence I like to call myself open minded and as an open minded person I must admit that I think of myself as far superior than those who think of themselves as superior for picking a side.I surround myself with believers and non believers but the one thing all of them have in common is they questionand they treat people with kindnessfor the most part I really don t care what you believe as long as your core belief is that you respect our landsand try to follow some kind of belief system that isn t harmful of others or future generations.Yup I am a dirty non believing, non God fearing environmentalist.My beliefs are that most religions are stemmed from crazy people and if you are a radical believer who takes logic out of the equation then I don t really have any respect for youas I am sure you have no respect for me.Scientology is at the tippity top of my list Those who have gone off in their own direction and practice their own form of Scientology need not fear my hatred I have so much respect for those that can t abide by the fundamental aspects of their religions that made them horrid in the first place.but I have no respect for those who cling to their belief system when it is harmful, and clueless, and dangerouswhen it splits apart families, when it ignores logic and when when bullies or men are only in the top tier.In fact..for the most part I don t really acknowledge Scientology as a real religion I think that they pushed their way into the mainstream by blackmail tactics and have no place in modern society The fact that they get tax breaks I think of as a joke I think of them as a cult Branches that have cut off ties with mainstream Scientology I have respect forthe ones that stick to a core base that believes in what is good and pure regardless of the fact that its founder was a crazy person The Ron Miscaviges of the bunch that benefit financially and carry it beyond reasonnot so much.There is good and bad for every religionThere are judgmental hypocrites that say they believe in goodbut live their lives anything butand there are the ones that regardless of what they believe live their lives with dignity and goodness that you can stand behind and respect even if you don t actually believe in the same things.After reading GOING CLEAR you will see how the Church of Scientology is full of hypocrites and corruption and evil doers just like allllllllllllllll religions are it is no differentbut the dangers of believing in something so much that you lose the ability to think for yourself and form logical conclusions of the world as a whole are exactly the same

    Wright gets my slack jawed admiration for his willingness to face stalking, slander, harassment, and a potential avalanche of bankrupting litigation in order to write a book that his own UK publisher wouldn t even release for fear of the retaliatory powers of what I initially thought was just a bunch of kooky, celebrobsessed Fox Mulder types, but who are actually just a 100% fucking terrifying cult, cult, cult who sues or smears or snuffs out anyone and everyone who gets in their way Good grief Wright gets my slack jawed admiration for his willingness to face stalking, slander, harassment, and a potential avalanche of bankrupting litigation in order to write a book that his own UK publisher wouldn t even release for fear of the retaliatory powers of what I initially thought was just a bunch of kooky, celebrobsessed Fox Mulder types, but who are actually just a 100% fucking terrifying cult, cult, cult who sues or smears or snuffs out anyone and everyone who gets in their way Good grief, I can t even begin to describe to you how creepy this book is, mostly because I don t have time right now, and also because WOW, this shit is something else Anyway, I was pretty excited to find out the other day that HBO is making a documentary based on this book, set to come out next year after 170 freakin lawyers review every frame in search of potential sue ables Because that s not totally insane Why, Beck, why

    This book is horrifying I knew a bit about Scientology before I started reading, but was unprepared for how much craziness and violence there was in this cult religion.I listened to this on audio, and there were many times I actually gasped when some shocking detail was revealed Such as when members were locked in a room for days with little to eat or drink, and they were forced to fight each other during a game of musical chairs They were told that those who didn t get a chair would be kicke This book is horrifying I knew a bit about Scientology before I started reading, but was unprepared for how much craziness and violence there was in this cult religion.I listened to this on audio, and there were many times I actually gasped when some shocking detail was revealed Such as when members were locked in a room for days with little to eat or drink, and they were forced to fight each other during a game of musical chairs They were told that those who didn t get a chair would be kicked out of the church, and a near brawl ensued.Or the time a young mother wanted to see her newborn baby, but the church refused and basically imprisoned her She managed to secretly phone a friend to drive over and meet her, and convinced the guard that her baby was ill and she had to go to the doctor The mom managed to jump in the car and escaped with her baby, with scientologists chasing after her.And there were stories about how the current leader of Scientology, David Miscavige, has beaten, attacked and humiliated his employees And there are stories of how church leaders harassed and threatened IRS workers until they were officially declared a religion, and thus could avoid paying taxes.But before the stories of beatings and harassment and forced separations, there is the history of the founder of Scientology, L Ron Hubbard Wow, that guy could spin a tale He wrote dozens of science fiction and fantasy stories, but he also loved to exaggerate his personal history He would invent wartime heroics and amazing feats of mental powers, none of which have been proven Lawrence Wright is an impressive writer Going Clear is well reported and detailed, and contains so many interesting stories that I was engrossed in the narrative He opens his book about this unusual religion by focusing on a Hollywood screenwriter, Paul Haggis, who loudly and publicly left the church back in 2009 We see how Paul stumbled into the church in the 1970s, and why he believed it could help him A lot of people have visited Scientology centers over the decades, forking over thousands of dollars for courses, hoping to be cured of their problems.In Paul s case, he rose quickly in the church, and was often told to fake it until you make it Meaning, he wasn t really seeing the mental or emotional improvements others have claimed, and the higher he rose, thebizarre the teachings became Paul finally left after learning the church was against same sex marriage, and hearing stories of the cruel treatment of gays.I found this book to be fascinating, both in its stories of specific church members, including Hollywood celebrities, and in its history of the founder, Hubbard, and its current leader, Miscavige If you like documentaries, the HBO film Going Clear is also excellent I actually saw that first, and was so intrigued that I decided to read this book I highly recommend both the film and the book.Favorite Quotes from the Introduction I have spent much of my career examining the effects of religious beliefs on people s lives historically, a farprofound influence on society and individuals than politics, which is the substance of so much journalism I was drawn to this book by the questions that many people have about Scientology What is it that makes the religion alluring What do its adherents get out of it How can seemingly rational people subscribe to beliefs that others find incomprehensible Why do popular personalities associate themselves with a faith that is likely to create a kind of public relations martyrdom These questions are not unique to Scientology, but they certainly underscore the conversation In attempting to answer them in this book, I hope we can learn something about what might be called the process of belief Few Scientologists have had a conversion experience a sudden, radical reorientation of one s lifecommon is a gradual, wholehearted acceptance of propositions that might have been regarded as unacceptable or absurd at the outset, as well as the incremental surrender of will on the part of people who have promised enhanced power and authority One can see by this example the motor that propels all great social movements, for good or ill Hubbard had an incorrigible ability to float above the evidence and to extract from his experiences lessons that others would say were irrational and even bizarre Habitually, and perhaps unconsciously, Hubbad would fill this gap between reality and his interpretation of it with mythology This was the source of what some call his genius, and others call his insanity Every new religion faces an existential crisis following the death of its charismatic founder Through his missionary work, Paul the Apostle kept Christianity alive after the crucifixion of Jesus Brigham Young rescued the Church of Latter Day Saints following the murder of Joseph Smith by leading the Mormon exodus across the Great Plains into Utah Religious geniuses arise all the time, but the historical test falls upon the successor, whose fate is to be forever overshadowed by the founder from the Epilogue Of course, no religion can prove that it is true There are myths and miracles at the core of every great belief system that, if held up to the harsh light of a scholar or an investigative reporter, could easily be passed off as lies Did Mohammed really ride into Heaven on the back of his legendary transport, the steed Buraq Did Jesus disciples actually encounter their crucified leader after his burial Were these miracles or visions or lies Would the religions survive without them There is no question that a belief system can have positive, transformative effects on people s lives Many current and former Scientologists have attested to the value of their training and the insight they derived from their study of the religion They have the right to believe whatever they choose But it is a different matter to use the protections afforded a religion by the First Amendment to falsify history, to propagate forgeries, and to cover up human rights abuses
