There are Way to Happiness ads appearing on some of my hubs and I just wanted to point out that the Way to Happiness is a cover for Scientology using a booklet with that title. I know this because I used to distribute them when I was active in Scientology many years back.
I never really looked into Scientology because South Park already told me everything I need to know. No, seriously, is that that Dyanetics things? Always wanted to know but am too afraid of being abducted by aliens or something.
Did I like Scientology? Yes, very much so for the first few years or so and I really believed I had found the answer to the mysteries of life and a group of people who were changing the world. I have an entire hub on the subject if you want to read my experiences. It did me a lot of good actually. There is nothing wrong with the Way to Happiness books only that it is misleading advertising because it doesn't tell you it is part of Scientology.
I posted this thread because I have seen people complaining about Scientology ads on hubs and thought I should let people know here that the Way to Happiness ads are also Scientology but disguised.
If Scientology has to hide behind a mask - advertising help - then it really does make you wonder what they're hiding for?
It's like fishing. Luring individuals with a juicy piece of bait. Then hoping they're still on the line when you reel it in.
I read what they believe in, and I actually believe in a lot of what they do. About equal rights, right to choice what you believe and how you choice to live your life, and all. But I choice not to be labeled by know one. I am who I am.
Sometimes they are just a rich group that likes to go retreats posing as religion for tax breaks. I have nothing against Scientology, but I find their stance on medication amusing. Hey I am not into taking unneeded medications myself, but Tom Cruise telling Matt Lauer about how he did not understand the history of psychiatry was pretty amusing. Then we had the couch jumping episode on Oprah .
I can't believe I actually got to see that episode of Oprah when it aired for the first time. I was laughing too. And I thought his take on bipolar disorder was terrible. Poor Katie. Have you noticed, she looks terrible. I mean, she doesn't look terrible but her new style does. She looks just weird.
There were some guys in Michigan, near where I live, who were harassing Scientology offices and they would wear masks when they did it. I don't know if it's still going on.
Scientology stirs people up on both sides. I don't much worry about the ads on my hubs. Every so often a reader will call me out on an ad, and I just feel like, well, don't click on it, you know?
I barely notice ads on the internet. Can't remember the last time I clicked on one.
I never click on ads either. I think I clicked on the Evony one because it was hard to not notice those hawt chicks on my stuff all the time.

My new hub has had advertising automatically disabled. As far as I can tell, it does not violate Adsense policy. Who should I contact? Is it Maddie?
