  •  Give Scientology ~100 more years. (0+ / 0-)

    It's not inherently crazier than any other religion, it just needs a bit more time to seep into the background until it reaches the point where people go, "Oh, you're a Scientologist? That's nice."

    Once DC-10s and eMeters are seen as old-timey, it'll lose some of the initial "WTF" factor. I'd say, hmm... 50 more years at least. If their membership holds out that long and/or Interpol doesn't just arrest the lot of SeaOrg for nine kinds of human rights violations. Man I'd like to see Freewinds raided by police.

    •  The thing with Scientology (0+ / 0-)

      Is that its clearly a money making scheme. The more you pay the closer you get to enlightenment, and they don't really try to hide that. The average Joe on the street isn't going to get his thetons read and stick with Scientology long term. Hollywood likes it because it tells famous people that they are rich and loved becaue they deserve to be rich and loved.
