I'm not venemous at all. I _don't_ take Scientology seriously, except for the fact that it _has_ harmed a lot of people. People have _died_ because of Scientology. I got "interested" in the bad side of LRH's scam over 15 years ago and read whatever I can, whenever I can. Beside's all the books dealing directly with Scientology, it's interesting how many books touch on it as a side thing. _Helter-Skelter_ for instance, goes into great detail about Charles Manson's interest in the cult. Oh yes, he got a lot of his best brain-washing techniques from LRH. A few of his followers were found dead in London, SPs taken care of, I imagine.

_Whatever Happened To The Class of '65?_ mentions Scientology too. One of the class members had become a follower of LRH and got very high up. He came to his senses and got out. Told his story to the authors too. Very interesting.

There are so many examples, and I'm not going to go into them all. The fact is, Scientoligists, know _very_ little about Scientology. You speak the lingo, you talk the talk, you spout the bullshit, but you don't know _ANYTHING_! You know as much about Scientology as cattle know about the inner workings of a slaughter-house.
