A Way to Happiness?

ORIGINAL BROADCAST DATE: October 31, 2007

CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 took on Scientology on Halloween. They profiled two Christian churches that are using some of L. Ron Hubbard’s tech in their sermons and in their ministries. Specifically, the Way to Happiness booklet is discussed. This is Hubbard’s “improved” version of the Ten Commandments. Why settle for 10 when Hubbard can spit out 30?

Of course, his commandments are wordy and often silly reworkings of those from the bible. Why settle for “Thou shalt not kill” when you can really explore the issue with “The way to happiness does not include murdering or your friends, your family or yourself being murdered.”

Shrinking World of L. Ron HubbardHubbard of course was an expert on morality and always set a great example. For instance, he advises “Preserve Your Teeth.”

Many thanks to Rick Ross for once again doing a fine job of explaining what Scientology is really up to.

Now if only these ministers would play this clip to their flock:

    The Way to Happiness surely has some hopeful principles which people can interpret in a way to help themselves and others. What unfortunately L. Ron Hubbard wrote for his highest level Scientology levels of the Scientology “Bridge to Total Freedom” are the final “OT levels 3,4, 5, 6 and 7” which deal with Hubbard’s belief that all humankind have an unseen burden of up to thousands of clusters of dead souls of humanoids that were murdered here on earth 75 million years ago, and the dead bodiless souls are infesting all our bodies, and only through getting up to the top of the Scientology Bridge to Total Freedom, one learns how to recognize these surplus souls, and then rid themselves of these surplus souls, which in Hubbard’s terminology these surplus souls are called “body thetans.” Due to Hubbards code of silence, the Scientologists unfortunately will not freely admit to the genocide incident, where an ancient space leader named Xenu is the culprit of that longago space opera tragedy, and neither are Scientologists allowed to freely discuss the un infesting spiritual processes OT levels 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 in detail. But Scientology is about souls, ultimately. The huge surplus souls condition Hubbard and the top Scientologists believe are all humankind’s ultimate spiritual problem. The South Park episode somewhat accurately depicts the tragic massive genocide that top level Scientologists believe happened 75 million years ago here on earth, but they are not allowed to admit the details which are shown on the South Park episode, although that episode’s depiction is pretty accurate. Scientologists of the highest level of Hubbard’s “Bridge to Total Freedom” believe in un infesting themselves of these surplus souls (body thetans) but they cannot admit the OT levels 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 concern ridding themselves of these clusters of body thetans.

    What a surprise, another Scientology ploy yet again. Mark, where can I find the full recording of “the man on the cross” thing?

    Rory, this link has that audio:

    I don’t see why christians should bother using the “way to happiness” afterall the bible, indeed any holy book, already has the ten commandments or the guidelines to being decent and good. And the real religions already have these lessons for free. It’s my opinion that the past of these preachers should perhaps be looked into.

    By any chance did they have any dealings with scientology in their past? Perhaps before they became christian ministers?

  5. Rory Says:

    Well Rick, the preacher did say that he was part of Scientology back in the day. By the way, thanks for the link.

  6. Roro Says:

    Double yuck!

  7. Ulf Says:

    The Way to Happiness is not the same thing as the ten commandments, the only
    religion Hubbard believed in is in The book of the Law.

  8. Mike T. Says:

    I like how LRH’s fucked up version of “thou shalt not kill” allows for you to kill a whole lot of people as long as they aren’t your friends, family or yourself.
