Probably try to help them escape because Scientology is a legit dangerous cult.


you can believe in the ideas of scientology without being into the cult aspect of it. this is like when someone says "i'm a christian" you assume they're in one of those jesus camps by default.

Ask them if they ever noticed that in their 1990 music video 'we stand tall' they all congregated in the 420 building?
Because it explains a lot.

I'm not sure I actually believe this tbh but I suppose there's technically no reason you couldn't

You can't be a scientologist without believing the creator is a failed science fiction writer.

Unless you are merely naive and uninformed.

There is a difference between faith and just plain stupidity. Scientologists cross this line.

After watching a few documentary and youtube videos on ex-members, many people loved the ideas the low level stuff taught, which is how it hooked them. Many wish that they changed their stance to just the low level stuff becasue they would rejoin and think many more people would join if it was just limited to that. Basically they just want it to be a peace and love and self betterment thing.
