My last site has been taken down by a troll. (not one associated with scientology though) but I was forced to switch providers. So sorry about the format of this.
Screenshot of my old website which was suspended.
What is a cult?
According to Wikipedia A cult is “a social group that is defined by its unusual religious, spiritual, or philosophical beliefs and rituals“
What makes scientology a cult ?
Well one reason scientology is a cult because it makes it harder for you to leave when you decide you don’t want to be in scientology anymore.
Here are some more reasons Scientology is a cult. They do some of the stuff Steven Hassan mentions https://freedomofmind.com/cult-mind-control/bite-model/ Such as behavior control, information control, thought control and emotional control. But each method of control has different bullet points under it. Note this is a bite model of Authoritarian control and not the one on mind control shown below.
Also see this How the Bite Model describes scientology https://freedomofmind.com/scientology-and-the-bite-model/

Scientology is a body of religious beliefs and practices invented by L.R.Hubbard. (according to Wikipedia) Scientologists believe that millions of years Ago Lord Xenu was the head of the galactic federation (no I am not making this up). If you want to know more look at this link.https://www.villagevoice.com/2012/07/21/why-do-scientologists-accept-the-xenu-story/ If you want to read the story of Xenu click here. https://www.gleepy.net/clams/ot3leaf2.pdf
Picture of Lord Xenu from a popular tv show known as South Park. note according to someone I know who is a scientologist most scientologists don’t believe in Xenu. However I don’t know if that is actually true or just what that particular scientologists believes. (see chatroom screenshots picture for screenshot)
Scientology is no normal religion and has been the subject of many lawsuits and allegations of abuse.
Scientology has 147 churches around the world.(sorry picture is hard to see)
Scientology status by country. From Wikipedia Dark green recognizes Scientology as a religion. Light green is where Scientology is tax exempt. Pink means it is allowed to preform marriages there. Orange is where it is considered a cult and blue means the situation is unclear. In my opinion it should be orange everywhere. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientology_status_by_country
In the United states scientology is recognized by the IRS as a not for profit for tax purposes!
Screenshot from the old church of Scientology website which has since been changed I think this screenshot might be from the 1990s or early 2000s but I am not sure. I wonder what was shown in the orientation film that might be interesting to look at if I can find a copy.

Scientology has been known to block its critics on twitter. (see the second picture below)
Recently a guy used recording glasses to enter a Scientology service and recorded what he saw.
https://www.rferl.org/a/russia-scientology-undesirable-/31477089.html Also I don’t support Russia (because of the invasion of Ukraine) however I found out recently that Russia calls Scientology undesirable and it is not a supported religion. They say it ” poses a threat to the security of the Russian Federation”
So Scientology is really thinking about sending L.Ron Hubbard’s books to Ukraine and claims that libraries have requested them. Down Below is an embedded tweet by Leah Remini about the situation.
1. So the “humanitarians” of Scientology are hard at work.
They think that Ukrainians need Scientology books at this time.
No, dickheads, they don’t need your books. They are fighting for their lives! https://t.co/GveqkCEOA9— Leah Remini (@LeahRemini) February 27, 2022

Scientology personality test
For those who don’t know Scientology has a free online personality test you can take you have to visit them to get the results though. Here are some questions I found interesting they ask during the test.
I wonder what kind of “discipline” they are talking about…
According to the dictionary Corporal punishment is described as physical punishment such as as caning or flogging. Given Scientology’s alleged history of abuse I find this question odd.
Another question I found interesting. A color bar is when people ban POC from participating in the same activities as white people. Class distinction is a characteristic that is observed to differ based on social class according to the dictionary.
Another question from the Test. I wonder why they chose these questions.
Anyway the test is very long (200 questions I think) and when you are done the site presents you with a confusing graph but then says you have an appointment on a certain date to go in and talk to a Scientologist about your results. However due to oviduct I am not sure how many in person meetings they are having. Anyway Here is some testimony from someone in England who has taken the test. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/belief/2010/sep/29/scientology-personality-test
if you want to check out the test for yourself click here https://www.oxfordcapacityanalysis.org/
So on the previous page I talked about scientology’s relationship with the LAPD (los Angeles police department) well turns out they have a program called ” Hollywood village” which is a hollywood cleanup program. They do everything from cleaning up trash to trying to make Hollywood a safer place for people (they claim)
When you tag Hollwoods villa on twitter and mention how they are connected to an Abusive cult and the LAPD they block you.
Screenshot from their website notice they talk about keeping hollywood safe but they ignore the harm that the church of scientology has caused people and it is not safe.
I found this interesting I clicked on a link from the Officlal Hollywood village website expecting to read more info about what exactly they do instead it led to a tiktok page. I feel like this is Scientologys way of trying to get younger people indoctrinated into their cult.
And according to the church of scientologys website as part of the process they also give homeless people copies of the way to happiness to “help them out”
organizations and companies connected to Scientology
On the previous Page I talked about Narconon which is connected to Scientology but there are other organizations as well such as the CCHR (Citizens Commission on Human Rights)
Crriminon a Scientology connected program that “rehabilitates” prisoners using L.Ron.Hubbard’s teachings according to Wikipedia.
Youth for Human Rights International is another Scientology organization, They say their mission is to teach humans around the world about humans rights, Yet they have no right to talk because Scientology commits human rights abuses on a daily basis.
United for Human Rights another Scientology connected organization
Foundation for a Drug Free World a anti drug Scientology group which has information about illegal drugs and alcohol on their site. it is what is considered a front group. A front group is a group that Scientology uses to promote it’s interests.
Applied Scholastic’s International is not for profit company that promotes the study techniques of L.Ron Hubbard.

Nation of Islam There are connections between the nation of Islam and Scientology. In fact Farrakhan receives money whenever one of his followers gets audited. So who is the nation of Islam. Read this description from the Southern Poverty Law center about it’s theology. “its theology of innate black superiority over whites and the deeply racist, antisemitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric of its leaders have earned the NOI a prominent position in the ranks of organized hate. ” if you want to look at the full article click here.https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/group/nation-islam Also if you want to know more about the Church’s connection to Scientology click here. https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/04/scientology-nation-of-islam-troubling-connections/

Scientology and racism
L. Ron Hubbard had a history of saying racist things here are some of his quotes.
According to his ex wife. L. Ron Hubbard wrote n a letter “You shouldn’t be scrubbing the floor on your hands and knees. Get yourself a nigger; that’s what they’re born for.”
“The trouble with China is, there are too many chinks here”

Originally the church denied it but then later they said Sweeney was followed. https://www.theguardian.com/media/2010/sep/28/church-of-scientology-john-sweeney
“They made a play for me. I did squeeze the cans and I did a session on the E-meter, and I realized immediately, because they’re asking very personal questions, that they were gathering information that I didn’t want to give out to a stranger.” – actor David Duchovny on how Scientology tried to recruit him but he didn’t fall for it. I guess even for David the truth about Scientology is out there.
Famous Scientologists and Regular Ones

Famous Scientologists and regular ones.
Everybody knows Tom Cruise is Scientology’s Poster boy but if you want to know the names of some of the other celebrities and famous people who are Scientologists Wikipedia has a list. They also have lists on deceased members and former members (note the Wikipedia list may not be complete and I’m not sure when it was last updated) If you see any errors be sure to notify them. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Scientologists#Current_Scientologists
(recent article mentioning Tom Cruise and Leah Remini an ex Scientologist. https://www.marca.com/en/lifestyle/movies/2022/06/14/62a8e54546163fb43c8b459b.html
John Travolta is another Scientologist and actor. Unlike Tom John does not have public outbursts on Oprah.
Nancy Cartwright(of the Simpsons fame) is another famous Scientologist. She She was awarded Scientology’s Patron Laureate Award after donating $10,000,000 to the Church in 2007.
But anybody can be a Scientologist not just famous people. writers, artists, small business owners, reporters and even criminal masterminds can be Scientologists. (Charles Manson allegedly was one) Scientologists are normally very intelligent and they do their homework. LOL (look at the second screenshot below ). And I’m just kidding they are brainwashed.
If you want to know about some famous people who have left the church. Ranker.com has a list of 27 people.https://www.ranker.com/list/famous-ex-scientologists/celebrity-lists
Some Scientologists such as Kirstie Alley block people for tweeting them about Scientology. They refuse to listen to the truth or discuss allegations.
An intelligent scientologist lol if they did their homework then why did they fail the Cults101 course in school?
What are freezoners?
What are Freezoners?
Freezoners are known as independent Scientologists. But official Scientologists call them (squirrels). These are people who were ostracized from the church for some reason and excommunicated or they left. Some freezoners have a problem with how Money Hungry the church has gotten while others have an issue with the fact the Modern church has strayed away from L.Ron Hubbard’s teachings a bit. Or they have a problem with the current Allegations of abuse in the church. Anyway it seems that Scientologists still in the church of Scientology have a problem with freezoners and have denounced them.
Scientology and the FBI
So back in 1977 the FBI seized some files from Scientology headquarters. Here is the List of files they seized from the wayback machine. Note this does not include the actual files they seized. https://archive.org/details/ListOfDocumentsSeizedByTheFBIFromScientologyHeadquarters/page/n15/mode/2up
One of the files they seized was a programme related to a potential criminal investigation. They also seized a document related to bribes and attempted bribes as well as other things. They raided the church of Scientology because they heard that several government agencies have been watched by the church of Scientology allegedly.
Here are some FBI and scientology files on the Church of Scientology also from the wayback machine. The second PDF explains in greater detail why the FBI raided the Church of Scientology.
First part of the Letter from the Church of Scientology to Members Of congress about the Raid.
What was Operation Snow white?
Operation Snow White was a church of Scientology effort in the 70s to get rid of bad records about them and their founder L.Ron Hubbard. According to Wikipedia they targeted government agencies,foreign consulates and embassies. Scientologist carried out activities such as wiretapping,infiltration and document theft. This became known as one of the largest infiltration’s of the US government in history. Two of the Agents involved in Operation Snow White were Michael Misner and Gerald Wolfe.

Scientology Chatroom Screenshots
Scientology chatroom screenshots
So I discovered a Pro Scientology Chatroom online. In the Chatroom there are actually members of the church of Scientology along with curious non members. According to A COS member the chatroom was created so the COS could interact with the public. The general public often asks questions about Scientology in general or a specific part. Here are some of the screenshots from it.
In this first two Screenshots a Scientologist talks about where he thinks Shelly is. By Shelly He means Shelly Miscavaige the wife of David Miscavaige who has not been seen for years and there are rumors surrounding her disappearance
