The allure of Scientology

Can't turn around without hearing about Scientology. This is one of several times I can recall across the decades when they have gotten a lot of buzz. This time it's because of Tom Cruise and other Hollywood devotees. Any pro-Scientology flare-up also draws out its many detractors, including this piece by Michael Crowley, an editor at the New Republic. Crowley brings out the details of founder L. Ron Hubbard's life, details which are usually glossed over by Scientologists or else completely unknown to them. These allegedly include black magic rituals designed to produce the Antichrist. (No, I'm not kidding.)

In any event, as you pray for the spread of the Gospel, please remember to pray about cultic groups, especially those which seem appealing when famous people promote them.
