    Shame shame Tom. L Ron would be mighty upset if he knew you were helping a gay person.

    L. Ron Hubbard was not homophobic.

    He wrote hundreds of works over half a century on the subject of mind, education, drug rehabilitation and related subjects. If you, “Small Fry”, pick an isolated quote from 1950, you will NOT understand what Hubbard had to say about homosexuality. Remember, in 1950, the American Psychiatric Association had homosexuality labelled as a “Mental Disorder.” It took the work of Frank Kameny and the Mattachine Society many years to get them to change that finally in 1963. Yet, in 1967, two years before the Stonewall riots and only four years after the American Psychiatric Association stopped calling us mentally ill, and long before any other major church instituted policies of non-discrimination based on sexual orientation, L. Ron Hubbard wrote the non-discrimination policy I referred to BELOW in bold capital letters:

    “It has never been any part of my plans to regulate or to attempt to regulate the private lives of individuals. Whenever this has occurred, it has not resulted in any improved condition… Therefore ALL FORMER RULES, REGULATIONS AND POLICIES RELATING TO THE SEXUAL ACTIVITIES OF SCIENTOLOGISTS ARE CANCELLED.”

    YO, Tahler….take a pill would you?
    Fry was making a joke, because for those of us who don’t read/care about scientology, it was funny.

  4. Scientologists are on Crack

    I worship a science fiction writer. I believe that he is a decorated war hero, even though that isn’t true. i follow a religion that takes my money to get to “higher levels” of the truth. i believe that AIDS is a state of mind and it can be cured by paying money to learn the truth. i worship celebrities…

  5. CUS

    that last comment was insanely funny stuff…

  6. doofus

    one thing I don’t understand about Scientology…

    don’t they claim that they can “cure” homosexuality?

    if the official church stance is that there’s nothing wrong with it, why would they need to “cure” anybody of that “affliction”?
