L. Ron Hubbard on Morality

L. Ron Hubbard evidently considered himself to be qualified to preach to 3½ million American children on morality.


So let's look at some of his own pronouncements on moral themes.

"Handling truth is a touchy business... Tell an acceptable truth."
L. Ron Hubbard, The Missing Ingredient, 13 August 1970.

The telling of "acceptable truths" is a tactic regularly employed by Scientologists. Most of the time, they will bend over backwards to avoid telling a lie (but that doesn't always stop them) by, for example, deliberately misinterpreting the question or interpreting it completely literally.

For example, if a Scientologist is asked "Is such-and-such school associated with Scientology?" they will answer "No".


What they will not tell you is that the school is run by Applied Scholastics, and/or uses "LRH Study Tech", developed by L. Ron Hubbard and used within Scientology, to teach children.

"The evidence portrays a man who has been virtually a pathological liar when it comes to his history, background and achievements.


The writings and documents in evidence additionally reflect his egoism, greed, avarice, lust for power, and vindictiveness and aggressiveness against persons perceived by him to be disloyal or hostile."

California Superior Court Judge Breckenridge on L. Ron Hubbard, 1984

Would you want a man described in this manner by a judge lecturing your children on morality?

Crowley styled himself "the Beast 666", servant of the Antichrist, and advocated the use of addictive drugs and bizarre sexual practices. Jack Parsons was a chemist and an early member of Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, but his passion was Magick (as Crowley respelled the word).


Hubbard and Parsons performed sexual ceremonies to summon a woman willing to become the mother of "Babalon", the incarnation of evil. The affair ended with Hubbard running off not only with Parsons' girl Sara, but also with his money. Hubbard married Sara Northrup bigamously, and started to write pathetic letters applying for a war pension.


In October 1947, when according to later accounts he had "cured" himself through Dianetics, Hubbard admitted to suicidal tendencies and begged for psychiatric help in a letter to the Veterans Administration.
from "The Total Freedom Trap", Jon Atack

A man who practiced bizarre "sex magick" rituals, telling children about morality?

"Scientology is evil; its techniques evil; its practice a serious threat to the community; medically, morally and socially."

Report of the Board of Inquiry into Scientology for the State of Victoria, Australia, 1965.

Some moralist!
