Nutters, just like the one where all the mouthpieces have to be blokes who can't have sex and where they believe in intercession from beyond the grave and a number entertain themselves with children.

Religion, you can stick it where the sun don't shine.

I shouldn't call Scientology a religion. It's won tax exempt religious status from the IRS after a long legal battle in the US but I don't consider it a real religion. It's popular with certain Hollywood types, but I don't consider that a recommendation.

i'm all for 'live and let live', but the fact that some people, in fact quite a lot of people (100,000+ iirc) could actually believe this shit does actually genuinely freak me out. how deluded do you have to be! things like this are dangerous and are like a disease of the mind. Well i suppose if that psychotic fudgepacker is in then that is a bad sign for a start.

As mad sky-fairy lunacy goes, it's up there with Christianity for sure, and getting richer by the minute.

Never been involved with it personally, but in the 80's I knew a few people who were Scientologists in London and they were a great bunch who liked going out on the lash as much as anyone.

I think some of the Scientology stuff can help people, but the rest of it seems to be a way for the 'Org' to vacuum money out of members' pockets.

I admire a finely-crafted argument, of which that is not an example. Am I correct in thinking that it's been declared a cult in Germany and banned? One could expect them to be a bit sensitive about personality cults, look where the last one left them...to wit, in ruins.

Hey - ever been to East Grinstead...?

I couldn't help thinking while watching the programme that any organisation which is that secretive has too much to hide. That and the constant recording and subsequent, spiteful leaking to the press of former members' most private issues convinces me of one thing: Scientology is not a religion.

No doubt someone will be along shortly to film me...

I used to work in East Grinstead, back in the early 80's. You couldn't walk down the high street without being asked by them if you wanted to take part in a questionnaire. In my opinion it killed the place, haven't been back since about '89/90

Fcuking amuaters, mate; when Scientology starts a few Crusades and slaughters hundreds of thousands of people, then they can play with the Big Boys!

Scientologists = Religious Walts.

Fascinating programme. I always wondered where the Stasi lads went after the Wall came down.

I was around the place a lot in the early 1990s and got to know quite a few locals. More than a couple told me that they knew people who'd got involved with such 'religions' and would go from being friendly and outgoing to passing you in the street and acting as if they didn't recognise you. Again: hardly open and inclusive, is it?

East Grinstead seems to be a centre for 'alternative' beliefs. I think Channel 4 once did a documentary on it.

I once worked (as briefly as possible) for another cult-like-religion (CLR) and it wasn't a very pleasant experience for various reasons. I gather that these cults generally acquire their adherents by targeting the vulnerable and sinking their hooks in when the 'target' (odious term) is on their beam-ends.

I used to work for Kennedy's and then Omega down Imberhorne Lane opposite the school before joining the Army.

My parents still live near there and they do all they can to avoid the place.Off the top of my head, in and around there there are:

Scientologists
Mormons (Felbridge)
Moonies
Rosicrucians (Forest Row)

Know it well; my ex-girlfriend used to have a house on Lingfield Road.

Next you'll be telling me you used to go to Martines!

A mate once spent the whole night in there plying a bird with drinks and sincerity only for her to tell him, as the lights went up and the gorillas started kicking people out, that it was £20 to sleep with her for the night. He made his excuses and left - or so he tells me.

At times, it weresn't just the cults that spoilt East Grinstead.

:-D

Oh yes Martines, remember it well and Camelots before hand to get warmed up (if you're local you will get the pun). The Dorset Arms at the top of the hill wasn't bad.
