The more bad press about Scientology, the better.

Not only does it prey on the idealism and gullibility of the young, by promising godlike powers that are, naturally, undeliverable, one might think they'd be guilty of fraud as well.

Watching the Cooper piece I found out that there are actually Scientology boarding schools for grades k-8. That is disturbing.

You can watch the Anderson Cooper piece here:


Dear Ghost,

Not only do they have boarding schools... but late last winter I got a mailing for a camp in Oregon called "Summer at Delphi" (which I believe is one of their boarding schools).

This part tipped me off: "Delphi's unique approach provides a personalized academic program for each student. Through the innovative study methods developed by American author and educator, L. Ron Hubbard, students learn study skills that will last a lifetime."

The application fees and deposit total about $400... with no real indidcation of how much the whole FIVE week program costs.

Very scary.

Oh WOW! After I hit "post" I looked at the xenutv link. I see on the title is says "Looks into the Delphian Academy". I guess I will have to check it out.
