    So much truth packed into a very small space. The hits just keep on coming.

    Just one aspect left out - Scientology collects all your "confessed" misdemeanors through security rundowns etc., to enforce compliance and for future blackmail.

    My comment didn't get through moderation. I think it may be because I said that there were a couple of things that I might have minor disagreements with but that the overall concept of the piece I agreed with 100% and said that people would do better to compare Scientology to the Mafia as it would create a much better understanding than to compare it to other religions.

    If this writer or this site don't allow statements that don't agree 100%, that's disappointing to me.

    That said, I appreciated the guy calling the cult for what it really is and said as much. No one else has described it exactly this way and it needs to be described this way more and more and when it's finally described this way by all the media outlets, it's game over.

    It IS a criminal enterprise and nothing else.
