Default Scientology: The Controversial Religion

So what does everyone think of Scientology and the Anonymous protests that are going on? It is a pretty controviersial belief and is considered by lots of people to be a cult, rather than a religion. I was just wondering what you guys thought of it.

No worse or better than any other religion. The reason why Scientology gets a bad rap more than any of the others is the fact that politicians have to pay lip service to Christians and Jews, and they don't with Scientology. As I said, no worse or better than any other religion.

I dont support Scientology, but I can say that I dont beive its a cult.

Its not the Hare Krishna nor a satanic cult. I just think its a belief for people who are dependent on the idea of a higher being and have nowhere else to go. That, and stupid people...
