Samoa government and church council to receive Scientology disaster course

Several volunteer ministers of the US-based Scientology religion are in Samoa to provide disaster response specialist courses for government representatives and local church councils.

The Samoa government and the National Council of churches are the two major organisations supporting the training courses, scheduled to start next week.

Numerous Hollywood stars such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta are members of the religion.

The followers of Scientology are fighting problems such as disaster management, manmade, natural or personal disasters, communication problems, violence, and drug or alcohol abuse.

The healing claims of Scientology

Scientology did not help Lisa McPherson

“Scientology is evil; its techniques are evil; its practice is a serious threat to the community, medically, morally, and socially; and its adherents are sadly deluded and often mentally ill… (Scientology is) the world’s largest organization of unqualified persons engaged in the practice of dangerous techniques which masquerade as mental therapy.”
– Justice Anderson, Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia, quoted atWhat judges have to say about Scientology
