Lawsuits lately a lot of controversy and criticism of this case. Is that the right word for it that's what we'll start today Scientology's . Father Edward Beck. What is wrong with recognizing this as a religion. Of personal. And kind of -- to criticize. Any religion because I know that we all -- appear to be a little bit weird. And if you think about it I believe and a guy who walked on water change credit lines it was body and blood and rose from the dead people could say watt. But when you consider. Some of the tenets of Crist Scientology's . And you consider some of the recent history of it it does appear to be more cult like -- religion. How soin 1993.

Now such Scientology's secrets are supposedly reserved for the more advanced in the church have gone through extensive audits as they're called. L. Ron Hubbard the founder of Scientology's Which by the way has only been around since 1953. Taught that people are spiritual beings called agents who really been around for thousands of years. Well whatever Scientologist may teach. Last week a Paris court didn't think much of it. -- find them nearly a million dollars when He convicted six Scientology's leaders of organized fraud. For bilking followers out of large sums of money. And to add insult to injury a famous Scientologist has now denounced the group.

Which denied same sex marriage. And He also said that Scientologist lied when they denied a policy of disconnection. From family members or friends who question their affiliation with Scientology's In a scathing letter packets wondered what else they might be lying about. Now I'm not usually one to call anyone else's religion weird after all I believe and a guy who walked on water changed bread and water into his body and blood. And rose from the dead. However I do wonder about calling Scientology's A religion I know it gives them tax exempt status to do so. But it seems to need more like a weird cult. I mean secret beliefs and membership. Lavish money payments. Isolating members from loved ones. And a leader who supposedly strikes his subordinates when He doesn't like what they say or do.
