This is the funniest thing I've seen written here. What are all of the scientologists doing here, if not advertising their merchandise?

i thought the scientologists were discussing scientology... funny that... discussions of scientology in alt.religion.scientology.

from what i've seen this group contains somewhat rational discussions about scientology, both pro and con.

the only major detractors i have seen are the splinter groups trying to sell their product. the scientologists i have seen make suggestions as to where you should go, but it can no more be seen as scientology selling itself than it would be if i were to go onto misc.comp (or whatever) and say that i thought that NeXTs were some of the coolest machines i've ever seen...

the difference between the splinter groups and the scientologists are similar to the difference between me as a private dealer of computer X (an ibm knock-off) going on and saying "i'll sell you this neato whiz-bang computer for less than ibm", and me as a private citizen saying "i think if you're gonna buy an ibm type computer you should buy the real thing."
