Belgian federal prosecutors are preparing to bring charges, including fraud and extortion, against the Church of Scientology as a “criminal organisation”, according to press reports.
Charges of fraud, illegal medicine, breaches of privacy and extortion have been drawn up against the Church and two senior executives, De Tijd, Belgium’s financial newspaper, has reported.

Couldnt agree more.

JFK: "And we are as a people, inherently and historically, opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings.
For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy..."

Whoa!  That is huge!  If Belgium actually goes through with it I think most of Europe will follow but I know the US will not.  There is  way to much money behind them here and when they start crying foul, they well win on the religious freedom stance, even though they insist they are not a religion.

I recall a friend & I answering a 'help wanted' ad when I was a teen and at the "interview" I was asked to take a personality test that was nearly 20 pages long...ugh,  being impatient I faked my way through it, but after they made my friend and I sit through a lecture about something I don't even remember what it was, but I know it was very boring and I wanted to get the heck out of there.  They ended up selling my friend L Ron Hubbards book, Dianetics for 10 dollars!!!  

I remember thinking what a load of bull****, I go to an interview for a job and they want to sell me something?   Well how ridiculous is that???  I did not get a lot of attention after I refuse to buy the book but, my friend got phone calls for weeks afterwards.

They prey on the week minded.

nothing and somthing first

thanks glorybebe

"Charges of fraud, illegal medicine, breaches of privacy and extortion" could be said about the church of athiest and christian chuches but not proven

because how can you prove fraud when it a believe it is in your self to believe or not  

one might name illegal medicine has your belief or lack of belief

I thought they were anti-medicine?  As a "medical practice" it can be argued that telling people with psychological problems not to take man made meds is definitely questionable, especially those with depression, psychosis and suffering schizophrenic episodes.

They should be charged for fraud for impersonating medical professionals-this is years overdue, especially as they deny being a religion and cannot hide behind any of the immunity that provides to so many beliefs.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

It wasn't known immediately ,that they were behind this. When it came out ,big outcry .
They literally moved in on the most vulnerable of people,and took advantage,like vampiric leeches
I hate them .

Good news, they are cockroaches and should be stamped on in every country they infest.
One of my favourite televison documenteries is from BBC, where reporter eventually looses his cool and gives this scientology creep both barrels.

Edit to include clip of volcano erupting. Not quite in context without seeing all documentary, but entertaining anyway.

Ron Hubbard, who was not making money off his scifi books, was quoted as saying if you want to make money start a religion. The whole thing was a fraud from the start. Then I think most organized religions are.
