Scientologist Wil Seabrook shares his thoughts on a recent city council meeting banning prayer from public meetings, published courtesy of STAND, Scientologists Taking Action Against Discrimination. I don’t believe in God the way many of my Christian, Jewish and Muslim friends do. And of course, their beliefs, while having many fundamentals in common, are as unique as each individual. Religion was on my mind as I recently worked with a music producer in Nashville who is a devout Christian. If… Read more

The article is published with the permission of  STAND, Scientologists Taking Action Against Discrimination.

How a statement by a young girl completely blew her father away. Published courtesy of STAND: Scientologists Taking Action Against Discrimination I spend a lot of time outdoors with my kids. Some might say too much. But while there are a lot of lessons one can learn about life at school or from books, I’ve found there are just as many lessons you can get just from exploring the world around you. The family out for a bike ride On… Read more

Scientologist Rodger Clark takes on Academia in his review of a recent religious study (and its news coverage). Published courtesy of STAND, Scientologists Taking Action Against Discrimination.

Scientologist Leland Thoburn on his reaction when he sees Scientology libeled in the media, published courtesy of STAND: Scientologists Taking Action Against Discrimination My mother died when I was 26. At her funeral, she looked like a second-rate wax museum replica. She was all there, but she wasn’t. Something enormous was missing. I hardly recognized her. Her personality was missing. “Science” (those quotes are the literary equivalent of a sarcastic smirk) would have us believe that death is simply the… Read more

Scientologist Wayne Hanson writes about conflict and the discovery by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard that there is a single source of conflicts and a simple way to resolve them. Published courtesy of STAND: Scientologists Taking Action Against Discrimination. Who doesn’t love a good fight? I still remember junior-high cries of “Fight! Fight!” as kids rushed to circle two combatants. But while conflict rivets attention, finding the cause of the conflict is much more useful than watching it. What if there was… Read more
