    Bunch of freaks.

    Reminds me of Jim Jones and his "People's Temple" or David Koresh and his "Branch Davidians", or Warren Jeffs and his Mormon-type cult.

    There's always some religious cult, or some other type of "cultish" group of people, out there that perverts the teachings of the Holy Bible and other religious doctrines.

    It's all in the free choice. You're giving a pass to a group that doesn't simply allow abortions, but harasses their members until they get one? :eusa_eh:

    When I was young I read Hubbard's scifi novels - never thought they were all that good.

    That's why he invented a religion. There was more money in it.
