Scientology, What is it really?

11 Oct

Here is a little post I wrote few months ago!

Scientology teaches people that they are immortal beings who have forgotten their true nature… (sounds cool, right?)
To get you back on the path to your true nature, you go through counseling, known as auditing, in which the practitioners aim to re-experience painful or traumatic events from their PAST lives in order to move on and free themselves of the effects.
The core beliefs of Scientology is that each person is a ‘Thetan’ or a soul. To unlock your ‘true power’ one must go through auditing, which is very COSTLY. (Auditing removes the ‘negative’ influences and psychic barriers)

Only after large amounts of auditing, Scientologists are shown the esoteric origin MYTH involving an ALIEN OVERLORD and GENOCIDE.

Sure, that sounds cool… But is it?
The dangers of Scientology are great. Many former Scientologists and anti-Scientology activists have leaked many serious secrets by the organization.
Scientology violates the right to free speech.
Scientology is ‘legally recognized’ as a tax-EXEMPT religion in the U.S.A.
They violate HUMAN rights such as suspicious DEATHS, TORTURE, coerced ABORTIONS and human trafficking.
Illegal actions have been committed such as slander, libel, extortion, harassment and lawsuits (encouraged when directed toward those who challenge Scientology.)
They practice unsafe drug rehabilitation, and BOGUS educational organizations designed to infiltrate schools to recruit young people.

Spread the word and make people more aware!

Religion and Politics

24 Jul


Probably one of the oldest debates known to man: Should religion and politics go hand in hand, or never be considered together?

Before I continue, I should point some things out. I am a christian, I believe in God. I’ve read the bible and I am a left-wing libertarian. I suppose this makes me biased. Maybe, maybe not.

Let’s start with the average day beliefs. A good relevant example of religion reigning over politics is the Gay Rights Movement. Many conservatives and republicans are known to be closely associated with faith and not support gay rights. This is because they think homosexuality is a sin, because that’s what the bible says. So, as politicians, they make the decision that everyone should be heterosexual, and anything else should be illegal. Basically, if you’re happy and different, stop it, because then you wouldn’t be a model cookie cutter citizen in the eyes of a republican. Modern day society is hardly the same as it was 50 years ago, where if you weren’t at church on sunday morning in your best, then you had to be sick at home. We are all surrounded by many different cultures and religions, immigration is bringing so much diversity into our westernized atmospheres.
Using religion to make decisions as a politician in modern-day society just does not work. Doing that is assuming everyone is ruled by said religion, when, a large amount of the population differs in beliefs.

When I’m thinking about politics, I push all thoughts of religion aside. We do not live in a theocracy, and we should not pretend like we do. As I mentioned, the diverse cultures we are surrounded by have different beliefs, and I would never, as a politician decide that what I believe is the only way. Everyone deserves happiness, I’m not going to be someone who denies such a basic right to humanity.
Often this belief gets many challenges. How could I be a Christian and support what is wrong and sinful? Everything comes down to morals, I happen to believe everyone should be happy, and that everyone deserves equal rights. Happiness isn’t a sin.

Isn’t it funny how those who preach homosexuality is a sin, are sinners themselves?
In this day, people are fueled by greed, they lie and cheat to get to where they wish to be. Are those not sins?
If you preach it, you better practice it.
