    I just wanted to get a different perspective on this religion after hearing an interview of the author "Blown For Good"

    I heard about the irrational side of the religion(the Xenu/Mystical side) and I am trying to find if there is a rational coherent side that the author did not talk about.

    What are the counseling sessions for? What is the mission goal of the religion? What are the philosophical claims and benefits to memebers?

    Well, they are the authority on addiction, mental illness, and emergency medicine.

    Just ask them.

    I apologize for a troll post that in no way answers your question. I just can't help myself when it comes to David Miscavage's cash cow.

    On a side note, I doubt you are going to find many Scientologists on a board that isn't 100 % pro-scientologist.

    they have some very intelligent people in their organization and have done some excellent investigative journalism on government corruption.. psychiatry and medicine...but other than that the rest of it seems pretty far gone

    They know jack and shit about psychiatry and medicine, and the only reason they care is because they don't appreciate any competition when it comes to the "mind control" racket.
