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.
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
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
"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.
