Do you ever worry about your spiritual eternity? Are there too many “solutions” out there? Have you ever turned to a popular spiritual “pain reliever,” only to find out later that it’s harmed more people than it’s helped?
The “solutions” that scientology has for making the world a better place are admirable, in theory. In practice, however, their toxic “disconnection” policy is not a way to make friends and influence enemies. Quite the opposite, when scientology breaks up families and excommunicates those who question their so-called religion, they create enemies and give society a headache for which no pill exists; not yet, that is.
That headache is turning into a migraine and mankind doesn’t know where to turn for relief. Decades ago, when its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, walked the Earth, people thought that scientology would be safe taken in recommended doses. Much like a shepherd guiding his flock, it appeared that scientology could usher mankind safely up the Bridge to Total Freedom, thus easing the pain and suffering of life on Earth.
One day, however, Hubbard died, and David “Ruthless” Miscavige took over scientology. Soon, Miscavige forced scientology down the throats of his followers in much larger doses and with different labels such as the International Association of scientologists (“IAS”) and “Ideal Orgs.” In larger amounts (and in prescription form that’s been considerably altered what with new “cures” including Super Power, the Cause Resurgence Rundown, the Survival Rundown, the Basics Books and the Golden Age of Technology), scientology can damage.
There is nothing known to mankind that can safeguard your trip up scientology’s Bridge to Total Freedom. The Flag Land Base in Clearwater, Florida, for example, declares in their promotional material that their facility is a “whole new dimension of excellence.” Just because Flag says it’s so, doesn’t mean that it is. Nobody is challenging those claims either. Not unless you count the growing number of ex-scientologists and those who’ve never been in scientology (and never will be).
Under scientology’s “care,” people have died, including Lisa McPherson and others who have succumbed under Narconon’s “watchful” eye.
The church of scientology will go to great lengths to protect its own and lure in new converts to its fold. In doing so, scientology whips itself into a frenzy, making its followers believe that the Bridge to Total Freedom is the “drug” that’ll cure mankind’s ills. Perhaps an agency in America, like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) should step in and conduct studies showing the possible risks of scientology. Imagine if such a study could be placed in mankind’s hands. Much like going to McDonald’s and being told the amount of calories you’re about to ingest with your next meal, imagine the relief mankind would feel if they knew the margin between the amount of scientology that might help and the amount of scientology that could cause serious harm.
Like McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a unit of Johnson & Johnson responsible for Tylenol, the leader of scientology, David Miscavige, has built that religion into a billion-dollar brand and barks its “success” to an uniformed world. Imagine if scientology came in bottle form, and the consumer could turn that container over so as to read the “Nutritional Contents” before taking or applying it.
The U.S. government has delayed or outright failed to step in so as to reduce the injuries and deaths caused by scientology. Like an acetaminophen overdose, scientology should be identified as “a persistent, important public health problem.” 
The U.S. government needs an agency, such as the FDA, to convene and issue urgent warnings about the damage that scientology can cause. Panels set up by the FDA could recommend safety rules for scientology, if any exist, that is.
Without governmental guidelines of any kind, scientology’s own claims are all we have that proclaims the “safety” of its products. Regulators in other countries (including Canada, France, Germany and the former Soviet Union) have limited how much scientology consumers can take at one time. Panels in countries around the world have rules designed to limit how much scientology can dish out to an uninformed world.
Like McNeil, I’m offering one approach in order to protect mankind from scientology. In today’s blog, I have an antidote to scientology poisoning that might save lives. I’m offering this free of charge, and in seven easy steps:
1. Go to your local laundromat, grocery store or bus station and look for a scientology display that offers brochures for the “Oxford Capacity Analysis Personality Test.” Make sure you find the official scientology display, much like the one in the photo above. It should say something like this: “Take this free personality test”; “Give yourself the knowledge of you”; “In just one hour you can test the 10 key personality traits that determine your future success and happiness, and find out how to improve them.” A key point in correctly identifying this display: the word “scientology” won’t easily be seen on the front of the brochure or the display that it’s found in.
2. Determine that you have all of those brochures, in whatever language they may be available in. See the photo above for the English and Spanish versions of the “Oxford Capacity Analysis Personality Test.”
3. The photo above shows the English version of the “Oxford Capacity Analysis Personality Test,” front and back.
4. The photo above shows the Spanish version of the “Oxford Capacity Analysis Personality Test,” front and back.
5. Destroy all of the brochures.
6. Properly dispose of them.
