Today I...May 27th

Today I... sharing these two pictures from the church of Scientology compound in the Hollywood area, right near where my Sweetheart and I were staying. My Sweetheart was very curious about Scientology as he has this thing where he likes to find out as much as possible about different cult-like religions, but I am very cautious about them because I dislike their recruitment habits. We did not go into this Scientology center, but I did cave in when we were in Pasadena and we went into a smaller center. We watched a film about how dianetics, the base of Scientology, became popular and as soon as it was done, what I knew was going to happen happened: someone came in with two 'Dianetics' books in their hands to try and sell them to us. We made it out of the center about an hour later after my Sweetheart had satisfied his curiosity (he is incredibly curious about pretty much everything and soaks information up like a sponge), without the books I am proud to say. The experience was quite interesting, to say the least, especially when we completed it with some more research when we got back to the hotel that night.

  1. Hi Karine! I make it a point to respect others personal beliefs (and their political choices) but have to say that Scientology is one that I really do not agree with--In fact, I left the last office I worked at because the principles of it were being implemented in the practice, and I just couldn't support it...
