  • It's Up To Scientologists

    If believers in scientology feel that their beliefs should be considered a religion, then it should in fact be considered a religion. Everyone should have religious freedom so you, nor I, should be able to tell people whether or not their religion is permissible or non-permissible. It all comes down to a person's values.

  • I think scientology should be recognised as a religion

    I am not a Scientologists but I believe that Scientology should be treated like any other religion for these reasons,
    1. As the founder L. Ron Hubbard is dead, it has lived on and became very polular
    2. I believe that all religions should be treated equally. Even though there are things in Scientology that I disagree with, I believe that there is wisdom in all religions.

  • Yes Scientology is a religion

    Scientiology has always been viewed as a religion up to this point so why would we stop now. People who practice Scientology believe in it and practice it. It may be different then some of the main stream religions of today but it still must be recognized as a religion.

  • Is it any more irrational than any other recognized religion?

    The tenants of Scientology are indeed, in my opinion, ridiculous. If you allow yourself to view other religions, and your own from an outside perspective it looks just as ridiculous. For example, the talking snake, burning bush, virgin birth, the trinity, the resurrection and damnation all seem on the same page as the tenants of Scientology. It's all absurd, but we can believe what we want to believe.

  • What is a religion?

    A religion is a system of beliefs and practices that some times makes moral standards. Given this definition we have to agree that Scientology is a religion. This does not mean that anyone has to respect or agree with it, but does meet the criteria for being considered a religion and should receive the rights and responsibilities of that designation.

  • It's a concentration camp.

    People have no rights, no privacy, they don't get paid for work and David Miscavage is a major or criminal with a supposed net worth of $600,000,00. He has all the benefits of a king and hides in a massive house. He should be in prison and the money given to people who have suffered under.

  • Scientologists worship themselves.

    If this is a religion, than believing in ghosts, angels or aliens to help you is also religion. Worship of money is a religion. Who do they pray to? A bad Science Fiction Author. We all should get tax exemption if they do. Scientology definitely is not a religion. It is just Self Worship.

  • Not a religion

    It is ridiculous to me that Scientology has been allowed to operate under the guise of being a religion. It is absolutely not a religion! The fact that it began as a business venture and then "applied" to be viewed as a religion ought to be enough of a reason on its own. Plenty of other reasons to deny it that status too.

  • Its a cult

    They protect their focus by controlling their parishoners, this is the definition of a cult. Its hard to leave, they have a division that follows people that leave, no religion above board does that. Its clear that this will be revealed one day. It clearly has somthing to hide and is really good at that

  • No god in it

    To me a religion is based on one God or more you can have a church for the flying spighty monster for all I care but what do they believe in money or science if it can be some thing like that you might as well make a church for a bathroom or a country so why not call the kkk a religion

  • No the religion is ****

    The religion is based off of false information that can't come close to real life situations the money they are getting paid is going towards drugs and other illegal purposes some one can't just make up a religion and expect it to be true the person who made the religion was probably on drugs while making it and there is hardly any proof that thier religious figure is real and plus any religion made by a science fiction writer can't be believed truly I think Scientology is the most stupid religion ever

  • Religion, in this case = tax shelter

    This argument is not about theology, beliefs, faiths, or opinion. It is a matter of taxation. The desire for this organization to become a religion was based solely on the need to avoid taxation for its ACCUMULATED profits (no charity is allowed to accumulate, only receive money in order to serve the community in some way). Hubbard said this himself - the only way to really become wealthy is to start a religion. They accomplished this by extortion, by bringing many lawsuits, - frivolous and annoying, but expensive and time consuming - against IRS officials. This is well documented. Their 'services' and 'humanitarian charitable work' is only self serving for the profit of the organization.
    They do all of this on the backs of slave and child labour.
    Scientology is an atrocity...It is a CULT, and it is allowed to continue its abusive, harassing, and life-destroying practices under the permission of the law which it was given under duress. This is complete madness.

  • No no no

    It would be one thing if they just held bizarre beliefs. It gets seriously dangerous when you see how advanced and violent their doctrine is about who is deemed supressive persons. No one advocates for people accused of this. They don't get to defend themselves or decide scientology isn't living up to their needs. They aren't allowed to quit or question their leaders decisions. There is so much data on just that subject alone and probably half the religion is dedicated to learning about s.P's. Its called tech. And this treatment of others isn't a choice. Its a requirement for them to be ruthless with s.P's. As an s.P one loses all his rights and is allowed to be destroyed and tricked with no consequences. Scientologists seem to take pleasure in this. They celebrate when they successfully ruin these people and have entire departments of people called the OSA who are dedicated day and night to these clandestine goals. They have endless money and spare no expense. How does this help our culture to have these people in charge of any other living souls who have every right to choose whats best for them. We all have Inalienable rights in this country and expect due process until being found in a court of law to be guilty. Scientology justice is perverted and biased. Letting them get away with manipulating another human being life is anti religious and anti love. Its simply wrong. They have no authority to enact this brand of justice, which is not fair or balanced justice at all. Destroying people doesn't get anyone closer to heaven. Its extremism and should be regulated if allowed to exist at all. All of scientology's submerged activity isn't doing anything to our society except creating justifiable killers and stealing peoples rights to privacy. Which all people do have regardless of their doctrine. And since when did a religion teach murder and society see it as enlightenment? Never, that's why they hide it and lie when asked.
