Check out the documentary "Going Clear" They had one of if not the largest holdings of property in the world. Yes, more than the catholic church.

Pretty shocking, but no more than Goldman Sachs/Freddy May or any bailouts for that matter..

One of my best friends when I was 14 was commuting from Clarkson to DT Toronto every day working full time for them to make 40 dollars a week. It was to pay for his 'education', meanwhile it didn't come close to covering the transit. I had another friend who immigrated from Australia whose parents thought it was a private school. Two years and 80grand later they finaly realized it was a cult. 6hs a day of PE, the other one or two cost 10,000 per subject per year.

I just finished reading Ron Miscaviage's book. Some of the living conditions are unconscionable. His son really let the power get to his head.

If the scientologists are this bad, I wonder how much worse the JW's are?
other than the refusal of blood transfusions/medical procedures etc for their kids I'm not sure they (JWs) are worse.

Blood transfusions can be a life saving procedure. But then again, denying medication to someone with chronic depression or bipolar disorder will increase the possibilities of high risk behaviours such as suicide.

The blood transfusion is a huge piss off for me. They preach that everyone can choose for themselves but the church intervenes with families ,.. kids die, moms in labour die,..no choice, sad.

So young.,, so naive, @Diablo.

I'm just kidding, what you stated and several other things really bother me but I do believe I've heard much worse about Scientology.
thanks given for calling me young :)
