My 100th Post

So what can I write about on my 100th post?? Something jolly and cheerful??? No, something absurd and ridiculous I think. How about Scientology. Just read about the inevitable conversion to Scientology undertaken by Katie Holmes. Now, I have a problem with religion generally, but I respect that some people have faith and should be free to worship in any way they see fit. Scientology, on the other hand, is nothing but a cynical attempt to make pots of money from the gullible and terminally stupid. Maybe we should gather these morons together in a spaceship and blast them into space. I can't believe that believers described past lives that involved them being:

  • 'deceived into a love affair with a robot decked out as a beautiful red-haired girl'

  • 'being run over by a Martian bishop driving a steamroller'
  • 'being transformed into an intergalactic walrus that perished after falling out of a flying saucer' and being
  • 'a very happy being who strayed to the planet Nostra 23,064,000,000 years ago'.

What a bunch of fruitcakes.......and some people believe this and contribute vast sums of money to the organisation. And if that doesn't convince you, read the words of Justice Latey in the High Court in London:

"Scientology is both immoral and socially obnoxious...It is corrupt sinister and dangerous. It is corrupt because it is based on lies and deceit and has its real objective money and power for Mr. Hubbard... It is sinister because it indulges in infamous practices both to its adherents who do not toe the line unquestionably and to those who criticize it or oppose it. It is dangerous because it is out to capture people and to indoctrinate and brainwash them so they become the unquestioning captives and tools of the cult, withdrawn from ordinary thought, living, and relationships with others."

Even High Court judges think that they are 'immoral', and most of them are barking mad if you believe some sections of the media!

Anyway, enough of this craziness, I'm off to watch 'Battlefield Earth', I need a good laugh!
