Going Clear and the Truth About Islam

We just watched the movie,Going Clear, a documentary on Scientology, and we were again struck by some of the similarities between Scientology and Islam. For example, if someone leaves Scientology, they are considered an enemy of the religion and in Scientology’swritten doctrine, they are labeled “fair game,” which means they can be “deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued, lied to, or destroyed.” Read more about it here.

Certainly this is a far cry from burning apostates alive or beheading them, but it is still an unusually aggressive response against apostates.

    Great documentary.

    Also, Nicole Kidman and every other woman should not be allowed to vote.

    Sounds like My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult.

    “Going Clear” also reminded me of another cult,, “Liberalism/Progressivism”

    Islam, Scientology and Liberalism/Progressivism are all Fascism

    The main difference between the two is that if someone leaves Scientology and speaks out against it, only Scientologists will try to ruin them; whereas if someone leaves and speaks out against Islam, they will be smeared and vilified not just by Muslims, but also by numerous non-Muslims.
