The Dangers of Scientology

I just saw this article that came from Time Magazine. Having lived next one of the worldwide centers of Scientology in Clearwater a couple of summers, and seeing these guys walk around downtown, it hits a little close to home. It's a very eye-opening, in depth look how this self proclaimed religion operates. It reminds me how thankful to know the Truth. The article opens up with this:

"By all appearances, Noah Lottick of Kingston, Pa., had been a normal, happy 24-year-old who was looking for his place in the world. On the day last June when his parents drove to New York City to claim his body, they were nearly catatonic with grief. The young Russian-studies scholar had jumped from a 10th-floor window of the Milford Plaza Hotel and bounced off the hood of a stretch limousine. When the police arrived, his fingers were still clutching $171 in cash, virtually the only money he hadn't yet turned over to the Church of Scientology, the self-help "philosophy" group he had discovered just seven months earlier."
