Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, Sony Bonno and Lisa Marie Presley all have one similar lifestyle. Yes, they are all famous celebrities, however, this lifestyle has more effect on a person than any career possibly could. These celebrities, among many more, are part of what has been called “The Church of Hollywood.” They are all Scientologists. The Church of Scientology is one manufactured by a former science fiction writer who could not stop lying about himself and his religion up till his death on January 24th, 1986. L. Ron Hubbard lied about everything from his Boy Scout triumphs to his heroism as a decorated soldier. Hubbard is anything but a man of God and yet his followers see him as the ultimate being. Since December of 1953, Scientologists have blindly followed this con artist in a cult based around hunger for money and power. Webster’s Third New International Dictionary defines a cult as an “excessive devotion to some person, idea or thing…regarded as unorthodox or spurious.” Scientologists are obsessed with L. Ron Hubbard, a man they refuse to believe the truth about. Scientology is not a religion. It is not conventional. It is not genuinely based around a belief of a God or Supreme Being. Scientology is a cult whose practices can be considered a joke and whose leader can be considered a pathological liar. The beliefs and methods of Scientologists may be easily laughed at by any sane mind. The “religion” has many cult-like activities and many unconventional needs and beliefs belonging solely to Scientology. An example of this is the very important one billion year contract. Members of Scientology who wish to be part of the “Sea Organization” must sign a contract for one billion years of service.

Ron Hubbard was not an amazing man, but instead he was a man who tried to catch a break through creating a religion to serve his every need. Thus, he created Scientology. In conclusion, the Church of Scientology is based on little or no historical facts and its teachings are so unorthodox that for it not to be considered a cult, is an outrage. The leader of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard can not be relied on to state any fact as proven throughout his past and thus all credibility of the Church of Scientology has been jeopardized. When examining the teachings of Scientology, it is as if one is reading something from a science fiction novel. They are then reminded that it was all created by a science fiction writer and yet Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, Sony Bonno and Lisa Marie Presley all failed to question this.
