Church of Scientology blames Pearl Harbor, 9/11 on psychiatry
Those folks are really amazing … living in an alternate reality really messes with your head.
In an interview on a television show called the No Drug Show, hosted by Larry Byrnes, the Church of Scientology blamed both the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States and the attack on Pearl Harbor on psychiatrists and the drugs they prescribe their patients. Scientology considers psychiatry to be barbaric and a violation of human rights.
“To take [a] person, and turn them into a killing machine, against their will or have them do things that are against their nature, you need something behind that. Psychiatrists employ drugs and conditioning techniques in order to change people from what they would normally be, into killing machines,” added Figueroa.
Figueroa goes on to say that Japanese kamikaze pilots responsible for bombing Pearl Harbor, Hawaii in December of 1941 were “on amphetamines which is a psychiatric drug” when they attacked. However, the the Japanese did not employ kamikaze tactics until later in the war.
Like the Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz, Scientology must CREATE its enemy if they are to have a CAUSE to fight. This imaginary enemy is the crucial factor that binds their ideology and gives it focus. In this case, psychiatry has always been the transcendent beast … the very one which L. Ron Hubbard used from the beginning to justify his traveling snake oil show. But it is late in the day … and THIS religion is, thankfully, finally running out of oil.
