It would be very exciting for you, or any Scientologist really, to actually look at
what you're involved in and have the great courage to question your organization's
statements as to their truth and question its standards and practices.

Although there is a convention which states that Christianity is
offtopic on ars, your choice to provide your understanding of the
subject is instructive. Your "why" that every religion has at its
heart some kind of wild beliefs is the Hubbardian viewpoint of
religion. It is false.
Your view of Christianity is also Hubbardian, and also false.
Perhaps, knowing the fact that you accepted these falsehoods as true,
you would be willing to examine your recent defense of Scientology's
antisocial and dengerous practices.
It would be very exciting for you, or any Scientologist really, to
actually look at what you're involved in and have the great courage to
question your organization's statements as to their truth and question
its standards and practices.
