Im curious. What is the role of Ron Hubbard in the view of the church?

Is Ron o The Pope of Scientology? o The Jesus Christ of Scientology? o The Buddah of Scientology? o The Mohammad of Scientology? o The Haille Selasse (Please forgive the spelling) of Scientology? o The Moses of Scientology? o The Shiva of Scientology? o The Ra of Scientology? o The Asimov of Scientology? o The Mao of Scientology? o The Khomeni of Scientology?

In a country where our elected leader was a second rate movie actor who believed trees caused pollution, we shouldnt be shocked that a science fiction writer can found a successful religion. Every religion gets started by someone who at the time is a contemporary.

However:

In the immortal words of MY hero -- "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."

Flame away. I cant take it anymore.
