That's precisely the way I feel.
Right.

All Catholics aren't crazy.

All Scientologists are.

I believe all of Scientology is crazy, Tom Cruise is definitely crazy and I do not believe in catholicism but wouldn't go so far as to say I think the religion is crazy. Just my two cents worth.

Attacking Scientology is no better than attacking Mormonism or Islam or Catholocism or Judaism or Hinduism; somehow people feel that bad ideas get better with age.

Stick pop-psychology self-improvement tactics with a mechanism of getting people away from friends and family creates a great religion. It doesn't have commands to kill kill unbelievers (another great way to spread an idea) but it works a charm.

Scientology should be bitch-slapped with the evidence of the scam that it is, just like other religions; it is important that scientology will use the law to attack it's critics, just like other religions, the right to attack it in public with words and ideas must be protected (another eeeevil thing those dastardly secularists seem to support).

Beck doesn't seem even remotely crazy to me.

Neither does John Travolta, who has spoken much more intelligently about it than Tom Cruise.

And aside from her Michael Jackson period, Lisa Marie Presley is a pretty impressive person, as are the non-celebrity Scientologists I've been acquainted with.

They believe DC10's with jet engines existed 75,000,000 years ago.

That's fucking crazy.

you know what else is fucking crazy?

about half the ten commandments.

really, the top 10 rules? and we're going to include no swearing? no being jealous when someone has a better car than you? no false idols? don't do ANY work on Sunday? only ONE god, no more, no less (so you polythestic pederast Greeks who invented democracy can go fuck yourselves)?

that seems pretty crazy to me.

and, FWIW, Beck had this to say:

[q]"What it actually is is just sort of, uh, you know, I think it's about philosophy and sort of, uh, all these kinds of, you know, ideals that are common to a lot of religions. . . . There's nothing fantastical . . . just a real deep grassroots concerted effort for humanitarian causes. I don't know if you know the stuff they have. It's unbelievable the stuff they are doing. Education . . . they have free centres all over the place for poor kids. They have the number one drug rehabilitation programme in the entire world (called Narconon). It has a 90-something % success rate . . . When you look at the actual facts and not what's conjured in people's minds that's all bullshit to me because I've actually seen stuff first hand."[/q]

you need to lighten up.

and stop defending Scientology with your hatred of Christianity.

There's crazy.

And there's fucking crazy.
