Stupid Scientology?!

Yesterday an incredible twitter trend emanated from the story of a Councillor based in Wales (John Dixon) who, over a year ago, tweeted:

“I didn’t know the Scientologists had a church on Tottenham Court Road. Just hurried past in case the stupid rubs off.”

….and now he faces disciplinary action in what was deemed a breach of the code of conduct for local authority members.  This decision led to David Allen Green proposing the retweeting of the tweet in question, together with the twitter hashtag link of #StupidScientology to show support (which was, and remains, overwhelming!!) for Councillor Dixon.

So, what’s your views?

If you’re not au fait with the whole meaning of Scientology, here’s a great video to clear things up for you and then maybe you can decide if you agree that Scientology is stupid or not….

    Just spotted your blog via Twitter and randomly clicking around. Though really past my bedtime 🙂

    Scientology = dangerous and crazy. The basic idea of using science to make people’s lives better sounds wonderful, but they think they can do that by… building upon the writings of a science fiction author? Bizarre. I still think the Southpark episode on Scientology is the best introduction 🙂

      Hey Andy, thanks for checking out my blog and thanks for your comment on this post.

      What I wonder about the most with Scientology is this excerpt from “Bare-Faced Messiah, The True Story of L. Ron Hubbard” by Russell Miller (1987) : “Whenever he [L. Ron Hubbbard] was talking about being hard up he often used to say that he thought the easiest way to make money would be to start a religion.” What are the views of the followers of Scientology about what he said? I’m genuinely interested!!
