Daily religion-bashing

Just cause I feel like it:

Critics say the church hushes up this story — it involves an evil demiurge who, 75 million years ago, blew up 178 billion souls with hydrogen bombs planted in Earth’s volcanoes, trapped them on “electrical strips,” brainwashed them and packaged them into clusters that now cling to every human being and mess with our bodies and heads — for two reasons. One is that the church needs a sufficiently dramatic payoff after stringing members along through years of courses and trainings, all costing upward of a quarter of a million dollars. The other reason is fear that revealing this fantasia of kooky stories might turn off potential converts — but, hey, that never hurt the Old Testament.

    Searching for information on Hubbard, I stumbled upon this: Criminon. It doesn’t say Scientology, but we can probably assume that’s what it is.

    It looks that way. Narconon for criminals, I guess.
