Shortest Critique of Scientology?
This is the shortest critique that I can muster. "Thanks!" to Adam Savage and Dorothy Parker for inspiration.
"I reject your reality and substitute reality."
I don't think they can find anything in there to sue me over, either.
Ok, I suppose "Bullshit!" would be shorter, but less specific.
It seems a shame. Back in the "Joe Friday" days of the 50's and early 60's, I have no doubt that people engaged in this kind of activity would be arrested and charged with both fraud and tax evasion. Now, of course, they are able to cloak themselves in the bloody sheephide of religion, and we must all respect their "right" to sell their beliefs.
