From Scientology to The People’s Temple, AllTime10s brings you some of the most extreme religious groups. Get out now before it’s too late.
In Scientology, “going clear” means reaching a state of happiness and freedom. To get there, you’ve got to go through “audits.” Years of them. AJ+’s Francesca Fiorentini visited the Church of Scientology in San Francisco for her very first dip into the religion, or, as some would call it, cult.
The newest edition of International Scientology News came with a DVD! On that DVD was a hilarious video mashup of hyperactive Scientology testimonials.
Created by the late science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology is a religion/cult which teaches that humans are actually immortal beings who, having forgotten their true nature, require intensive (and expensive) “auditing” techniques to rediscover their true, immortal selves.
Reports and allegations have been made, by journalists, courts, and governmental bodies of several countries, that the Church of Scientology is an unscrupulous commercial enterprise that harasses its critics and brutally exploits its members.
In this compelling episode, we explore Scientology’s practices, and we hear from those who escaped its shadow.
