Yesterday, walking through the Upper East Side of Manhattan I saw a sign outside an attractive New York brownstone offering “Free Personality Tests!!” and a large poster for “Dianetics”, L. Ron Hubbard’s Scientology bible. I chuckled to myself as I hurried by- Scientology recruiting in one of the most upper scale neighborhoods in America. Quelle surprise!! Then today I see on Andrew Sullivan’s very fine blog a link to a scientology video proposing that islamofascist terrorists, the kamikazes of WWII, marketplace bombers in Iraq and the perpetrators of the Holocaust were/are all the products of…….wait for it……psychology and psychiatric drugs……..
Honestly, one of these days I’m starting my own cult. How hard can it be???? Two shots of happy, one shot of sad, tablespoon of batshit crazy, garnish with pseudo-scientific mumbo-jumbo, sprinkle of occult and voila!
