What is Scientology?

Thanks to a recent commenter for pointing us toward this video. Someone snuck a camera into a screening of this Scientology orientation video, so you too can get a 36-minute introduction to the religion Katie Holmes is marrying into.

Evil T wondered what their wedding would be like. I’m not sure, but around 23:50 there’s a church scene. It’s a “Christening,” and I’m pretty sure there’s a big ole’ cross behind the minister. See, guys? Scientology is just like that Christianity you know and love, except with more aliens and intergalactic warfare.

Even if you don’t watch the whole thing, please check out the end, starting around 32:30, where you’re warned that you have the opportunity — right now — to determine the course of the “your next trillion years.” You can choose Scientology, or you can choose agony and despair. For a trillion years, people. “I’m sorry,” says the host, “but that’s the way it really is.”

Anyway, if you’re gonna watch it, watch it today, before I get the cease and desist letter.

    They SHOULD study psychology, because their sales pitch sucks!

    Actually, that cross isn’t what it looks like. I originally thought it was a cross with extra rays coming out of it. Turns out that it is based on a satanist symbol from Alastair (sp?) Crowley, whom L. Ron Hubbard admired. If you look closely, you can see that what appear to be little rays are actually a small “X” crossing out the cross. Creepy.
