|Hubbard vs. Christianity|
Hubbard warns about the consequences of failing to disseminate Scientology or improperly disseminating it; relates bad dissemination to the Inquisition and burning people.
Scientology . . you can use it backwards and upside down and run it wrong and everything else, and you ctually won't commit much of a crime. But improper or incorrect or failure to disseminate Scientology adds up to one awful overt. Ask yourself for a moment, why? Well, if Scientology is abroad in a workable state, even though this fellow kicks the bucket, he'll be picked out of it someday..
All right. So this character gets loused up by processing, and next life, next life, next life, he has run on him, "You take this book on Suba-ooba-ooba, and you stand in the middle of the room, and you go around in circles, and then when you fall down you're Clear." It's no road out. And that's happened to Buddhism, Lamaism, the original Taoism. Happened to any development they've had here on Earth. Started out free . . by bad dissemination . . booby trap. See?
I imagine Christianity was all right sometime or another. I imagine it didn't have some of the intentions which it eventually expressed, such as Inquisition and burning people in East Grinstead, and a few other things. Oh, you didn't know there were people burned in East Grinstead?
They're lying right up here in the courtyard. You want to drop into the church cemetery there someday. You'll see them. They're buried right up on the High Street. I mean, they were burned on the High Street and buried eventually in consecrated ground. It was interesting. But what's most interesting about it is that it didn't sour people on it; it only soured people on a branch of it.
—L. Ron Hubbard
