SpankyPinkbottom: I landed up in treatment with a dude who got sucked into Narconon without knowing what it was. They treated his withdrawal from heroin and benzos with vitamins. When he inevitably had a seizure, they attempted treat that with yet more vitamins. They refused to take him to the local emergency room until he threatened a lawsuit.
saturn badger: Mad_Radhu: Before I read Going Clear, I wrote Scientology off as a scam, but now I'm convinced it is an insane cult. David Miscivage is deeply unhinged. He turns on people for the smallest of things and is physically violent (hitting and choking people out of the blue) and a huge fame whore. The whole religion is a reflection of his and L Ron's mental illness. It's a deeply sick organization.Now it is time for Beyond Belief. Good book by Jenna Miscavige. Davids neice.
Confabulat: Those charlatans claim Hubbard's teachings about drug addiction have nothing to do with his teachings about Scientology.No, they really claim that.
Fark_Guy_Rob: So it's basically like all the other religions?Well, that's good.
Jument: All religions suck to some degree but Scientology is by far the worst, at least in the western world./I was in St. Peter's Square for the Pope's Tuesday Mass a few weeks ago, it was pretty cool actually//agnostic, was there for the "historical value" rather than any religious reason
MFAWG: And this makes them different from other faith based recovery programs how, exactly?
chuggernaught: Came for You_Don't_Say!.jpeg. Leaving dissatisfied./What happened to you farkers? You used to be cool.
