    Scientology: Cult or Religion?

    Describe your stance on this issue and explain why you feel that way.

    I believe in the freedom of religion, and with that people have the right to believe in anything they choose. If people want to believe in scientology, then by all means do it. I personally don't believe in it, but I'm not going to stop others if they wish to do it.

    There is no difference between a religion or a cult other than when a movement gains social acceptance, it is then regarded as a religion rather than a cult.

    Scientology... a concept in a sci-fi novel that someone realize would make big bucks among celebrities. Because in L. Ron. Hubbard's opinion, "the way to make a million dollars is to start your own religion. (He's the one who wrote Dianetics the book that made Scientology famous.)

    So yeah, I don't really view it as a cult, just a bunch of rich people just wanting to be a part of the fun.
