|Hubbard vs. Christianity|
Hubbard criticizes the Christian church about their supposed position on blasphemy and their admonition that "Thou must not talk to God."
Hubbard turns this alleged admonition into a repetitive auditing process "Get the idea of not communicating with God" and instructs his audience how to selectively upset or "restimulate" someone so they will act in a certain way.
In the Christian church they get you stuck in God by running the line "blasphemy." "Thou must not talk to God." See? You mustn’t say anything bad about God. You mustn’t be in communication with God..
You mustn’t . . God isn’t there. You can’t talk to him. You mustn’t communicate with God. All right, if you set somebody down, and say, "All right. Get the idea of not communicating with God. Good. Get the idea of not communicating with God. Good. Get the idea of not communicating with God. Good.
Get the idea. . ." and ARC broke him while you were running it, and get your rudiments out, and have somebody ring him on the phone in the middle of the session and tell him his wife has just left him, or something like this. In other words, get ARC breaks and present time problems good and restimulated, and go on and run this, "Go out of communication with God. Go out of communication with God." All of a sudden the fellow gets a starry-eyed look on his face; he actually could be walked right straight out and join a nunnery, or whatever it is they join. You got the idea?
In other words, you can take the whole track fixations of a person and restimulate them selectively and bring about momentary resurgences in certain goals directions. And you can do it. It can be done.
— L. Ron Hubbard
