What is Scientology?
Mormons: A sect of xtianity dreamed up by Joseph Smith, and sold to an unsuspecting and easily pliable populace in the 1800's. They're not harmful, AFAIK, but it's just another twist on an age-old con game.
Scientology: A pseudo-religion based on the maunderings of a half-mad Ray Bradbury wanna-be named L. Ron Hubbard. Their core belief is that we are made up of the souls of extra-terrestrials that were murdered by a billion-year old galactic tyrant called Xenu. Other that that, it's not much different than Christianity.
