If they treat education like a product, they can't very well bitch when you act like a consumer.
Ouch. I think Elron is bad for your health.
Scientology is evil; its techniques are evil; its practice is a serious threat to the community, medically, morally, and socially; and its adherents are sadly deluded and often mentally ill... (Scientology is) the world's largest organization of unqualified persons engaged in the practice of dangerous techniques which masquerade as mental therapy.
The government is satisfied that Scientology is socially harmful. It alienates members of families from each other and attributes squalid and disgraceful motives to all who oppose it; its authoritarian principles and practice are a potential menace to the personality and well being of those so deluded as to become followers; above all, its methods can be a serious danger to the health of those who submit to them... There is no power under existing law to prohibit the practice of Scientology; but the government has concluded that it is so objectionable that it would be right to take all steps within its power to curb its growth.
It is an organization with medical, social and ethical practices that are dangerous and harmful. It claims to act freely so as to draw members who subsequently undergo ... brainwashing by dictated ways of thinking that limit reaction capabilities.

Call to Skeptics and Superior Mutants[/size]From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Modemac)Newsgroups: alt.slack,alt.religion.scientologyA Call to Skeptics, Doubters, Outcasts, Blasphemers, Suppressive Persons, Squirrels and Squirrelles, and others who actually dare to question the writings and teachings of the Church of Scientology.The holy war between the Church of Scientology and the Church of the SubGenius has been escalating in recent weeks, as Scientologists have upped their efforts to drive free thinkers such as Reverend Dennis Erlich off of the Net.Because organized attacks can best be met with organized resistance, I am declaring the creation of a SubGenius Online Clench, to be known for the time being as the Excremeditated Congregation of the Overinflated Head of L. Ron Hubbard. The primary purpose of this Clench will be to exercise the right to Free Speech that has been granted to us by Jehovah-1, Alien Space God from a corporate sin galaxy. All members of this clench are encouraged to participate in online discussions on Usenet and the rest of the Internet, to allow the opposition a chance to speak for themselves, and to encourage free, open, uncensored (and uncanceled) expression of free speech for all.Because of their status as true SubGenius ministers, Free Thinkers, questioners of the writings of L. Ron Hubbard, and thorns in the side of the Conspiracy, William Barwell (SubGenius Pope of Houston) and Reverend Dennis Erlich (The Informer) are hereby granted the right to choose an appropriate title for themselves as spokespersons for this Online Clench, and for the Church of the SubGenius in general. Any other SubGenii who wish to join our Clench and participate in the alt.religion.scientology discussions are, of course, free to do so if they choose. Those of you who wish to join the SubGenius Online Clench may do so as Honorary Members. However, it is beyond my power to grant you true membership as a full-blooded Clench Brother or Sister. This rank can only be bestowed upon you by the Living Slackmaster himself, J.R. "Bob" Dobbs, and the only way for you to do so is to join the Church of the SubGenius - the greatest of he thousand-and-one One True Religions to infest this great wide world of ours - and become a full-blooded, paid-up Minister.If you wish for more information about J.R. "Bob" Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius, feel free to email me, or check out alt.slack, the official newsgroup of the Church of the SubGenius.Why the Church of the SubGenius is better than the Church of Scientology:The Church of Scientology wants all your money, but they refuse to admit it. The Church of the SubGenius wants all your money, and we're PROUD to admit it. The Church of Scientology hides its profit-making enterprises behind tax-exempt status. We are the only religion that pays our taxes regularly. The Church of Scientology wishes to suppress the fact that it teaches belief in aliens who populated the earth millions of years ago. We hereby acknowledge the fact that SubGenii are, in fact, not human and part of the true Master Race known as Homo Correctus, descended from original Yeti stock (as described in REVELATION X: The "Bob" Apocryphon, Chapter 6). The Yetisyn are descended from alien beings (known as the Xists) who will in fact be returning to Earth very soon.The Church of Scientology demands that all Scientologists obey their Church and that no "squirrels" or Free Zoners be allowed to practice their religion. The Church of the SubGenius encourages members to break away and form their own Church IMMEDIATELY after joining and sending their money to "Bob."The Church of Scientology demands unquestioning obedience from all followers of the mighty L. Ron Hubbard. The Church of the SubGenius demands that all SubGenii think for themselves and allow NO ONE - not even "Bob" - to dictate their thoughts to them. SubGenii are encouraged to kill "Bob" himself, should we meet him in person, and in fact "Bob" WAS killed in 1984 (though he returned from the dead a few years later, only to be killed again and ressurected again). For more proof of the supremacy of the mighty cult of "Bob," look to alt.slack and read THE BOOK OF THE SUBGENIUS. [More...]
