I have never looked deeply into Scientology, but I was very interested in watching the HBO Documentary “Going Clear.”
It was fascinating!
Here are my biggest takeaways:
- The founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard, is a Science Fiction writer, and holds the world record for most books published.
- There was this whole big scandal and lawsuit between the Church and the IRS. Scientology is classified as a “religion” so they pay no taxes. However, they do nothing to support or give back to the community. They are not a charitable organization.
- If a member decides to leave the church. They will be “disconnected” from anyone who is still a Scientologist — Even their own kids!

From an outside perspective you think “Why would anyone get involved with this”?
