What is their faith? I've heard of them, but I've never been interested enough to research their faith.

Anyone care to enlighten me?

They don't think it's a religion. They just pay huge amounts of money for stress relief things, and are told that if they keep paying, they'll clear their mind or whatever. As they climb the ranks, the procedures get more expensive. Allegedly when they get to the very top of the ladder, they are told that alien spirits infest their body, because of the evil lord Xenu.

There are also people who can't afford Scientology that work in labor camps in return for the treatments. Really a scary cult at that level.

In scientology, it's okay to kidnap or harm people in order to save them...

This should be in this thread...
Explains how dangerous Scientology is...

Yeah, these guys are all "hush, hush" 'cuz they're beliefs would get them laughed out of the room. ... I wonder if Travolta has his "super-powers" yet??? If ya really wanna see how miserable their lifestyle becomes, look no further than the inventor of scientology: L. Ron Hubbard.

That South Park episode was classic, with the caption: "Warning: Scientologists ACTUALLY believe this."
