hr-summit

On the 63rd anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Church of Scientology urges mandatory human rights education as the key to its full implementation of the Declaration. Human rights are the rights that belong to everyone without exception—to people of any color, creed, age, ethnicity or gender.

Don’t Bypass Your Child (Part 2)

This is the second of two (perhaps more) posts on the subject of bypassing your children – and in this context, bypassing means to ignore their efforts to help or do work that is theirs, and instead doing it yourself. I realized after writing my last post on the topic that there is so much more that could be written on this, and so many other facets to the issue.   The facet mainly covered in the first post was that the more you bypass them and don’t let them do the work, the more … [Read more...]

Don’t Bypass Your Children (Part 1)

Human Rights Day

December 10 is the 63rd anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and amazing document that lays out the basic rights to which every human being is entitled.

What Moral Code do Scientologists Live By

There are four main codes that Scientologists apply in life. One is the Auditor’s Code, which gives the basic rules an auditor must abide by to ensure excellent auditing results. Another is the Code of a Scientologist, guidelines which Scientologists agree to follow in order to achieve the aims of Scientology. There is an ethical code, called the Code of Honor, that Scientologists follow in their day-to-day activities.

What are Scientology Congregational Services and Religious Ceremonies

Scientologists find that Scientology Sunday religious services, which address the spirit in accordance with the religion’s teachings, are uniquely suited to their needs and impart a special quality to these occasions.
