Anderson Cooper to Take on Scientology in New Weeklong Series

TV

Anderson Cooper is getting ready to launch a weeklong series about Scientology today. The series will cover the allegations against the controversial religion, according to Radar Online.

Cooper’s CNN nightly news show, Anderson Cooper 360, will take an inside look at Scientology’s “history of violence,” especially at the allegations against the leader, and best friend of Tom Cruise, David Miscavige that he physically abused his followers.

Cooper will interview Tommy Davis, Scientology spokesman, where he discusses the claims that while there violence was committed against the members in the elite Sea Organization. The guilty offenders are also the ones making the allegations against Miscavige.

Recently, Scientology has been under attack by top-ranking members who left the organization. Top celebrities who support this religion, like Cruise, John Travolta, Jenna Elfman and Kristie Alley, have yet to comment.

Sydney, any upstanding Scientologist knows that LRH forbade 'mixed practices', and taught that the Abrahamic religions, including Christianity, were part of the 'R6' implant instilled into disembodied alien souls called 'thetans' 75 million years ago by the minions of galactic emperor Xenu. So either you're a hypocrite, or you simply haven't paid the cult enough money yet for them to tell you what they really believe. SCIENTOLOGY IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH OTHER RELIGIONS. Do your homework, look it up in Hubbard's own words. Sheesh, you think people are still going to fall for this 'shore story'. As for the 'few' that have spoken out, over a thousand ex-Scientologists are on the record now speaking out against this for-profit business scam. And how many Scientologists are left, really? REALLY?

Very glad to see this investigation. There have been so many extremely serious complaints against this organization, yet somehow the situation has been under-reported. Thank you for your attention to this situation.

Sydney, why is it when somebody says something critical of Scientology, you possess this irrational attitude: "Everything critical of Scientology is a LIE and propaganda! Propaganda! Hate mongers! Bigots! Look at me, I know EVERYTHING and you don't! Everyone is a liar! Ex-Scientologist's can't be believed since they're all criminals trying to hide their crimes! Lemmings! All newspapers lie. Psychiatry is evil. Scientology is the only truth! You are so hateful! HATE GROUP! TERRORISTS!"Additionally, when you say "I have never even heard of people being forced to have abortions, let alone witnessed it.", you are proof once again that Scientologists tend to make what might be called the "Argument from My Own Eyeballs", saying that if you don't have any audio and visual footage of an actual event then the likelihood that that event took place should be doubted. If this style of reasoning was ever applied to the legal system convictions of criminals would go through the floor and chaos would ensue because we would be demanding a standard of evidence that is practically impossible to meet.So you're essentially saying, "I have no proof, but then again, I feel the truthiness of it, so even if it isn't true, it FEELS true, and that's enough." The fact of the matter is, unrelated ex-Scientologists from all over the world are confirming, with very compelling stories, the same thing regarding Scientology's abuses.

My wife and I who, were raised in the Christian and Jewish faiths, have been members of the Church of Scientology for well over 35 years. We have worked in many organizations from small Missions to Large City Churches to the the International level Churches. We have both gone to Christian and Jewish services with our families during that time. We have taken yearly vacations with them and separately, there has never been any conflict or disrespect. We were never forbidden to go or punished for going. In all these years I have never even heard of people being forced to have abortions, let alone witnessed it. I have never been made to disconnect from anyone, I have witnessed a few physical altercations, but much less than I witnessed in the various Christian Churches I was a member of and way less than I have witnessed in non-religious groups I have belonged to. With very few exception, two of them being individuals CNN are giving a platform to, almost one for one the Scientology staff I have had the pleasure of working with are hard working, caring individuals. As with most religious orders, those at the higher levels, sign agreements and take vows to devote their life to the Church and its mission, with no financial motivation. Of the many thousands who do this a handful decide they have made a mistake and leave in an ethical manner, and a handful, who came in with criminal intent or for other motives, when found out, are either made to leave or run away and attack the Church for profit or out of vindictiveness. As I have yet to see the CNN program I can only hope it does not, as the Newspapers who put forward similar stories, forward the unproven claims and give no or little space to the wonderful people in the Church and all of the many positive things it does in the world. Unfortunately, I think from the headline it is just more hate being created in a world that is already burdened by so much of it.

Hubbard also said the quickest way to make a million dollars is to create a religion. Not the best foundation for a "religious organization" to come into existence.
