Scientology is the ultimate and perfect scam: it teaches that everything bad that happens to people is not their fault, it's caused by outside forces (body thetans) so nobody ever has to be responsible for the stupid decisions they make or the stupid actions they do in their life.
They also teach people that problems like schizophrena, bipolar disorder, depression, autism, etc should not be treated medically and that the medical profession is trying to control them through drugs.
The result is people with serious medical problems going untreated like Tom Cruise and Travolta's kid who died from a fatal siezure.
IMHO, adults of age should be able to join any cult they desire but their kids should be protected from it. I applaud what Katie Holmes did.
If you study the history of Scientology, it started out as "The Modern Science of Mental Health" which is to say had a scientific spin. It only mutated into a religion when they realized that would help them avoid paying taxes on the astounding amounts of money they were extorting from the idiots who followed them.
