With the Tom and Katie news lately, which frankly I couldn’t give a flying fuck about, you have lots of people bringing up how crazy the Scientologists are. I’ll be the first ones to agree that they are, utterly, hopelessly and ridiculously insane.
But they’re not the only ones.
The thing is though, most people I see bitching about the Scientologists are just as religious and don’t want to face the reality that they’re just as crazy as the Scientologists.
I saw someone complaining that the Scientologists sue people to keep secrets about the church buried. He went on and on and on about how horrible and awful it was that the Church of Scientology teaches it’s members to go out and try to censor anything negative about the church online. But bring up, say… the Catholic Church and their attempts to do the exact same thing and you’ll be met with blank stares. They just don’t want to acknowledge that Christians are just as nutty as Scientologists.
Nobody has any monopoly on crazy religious shit, that’s something the religious ought to get through their delusional little heads while they’re pointing fingers at each other and calling each other insane.
