    All organized religion is full of shit.

    Scientology is just infamous because it's creepier than usual in guarding its secrets and it's in the news for more sensational reasons than other religions.

    I think this line from South park describe the best what I think about scientology

    Mr. Connolly: Is it any more retarded than the idea of God sending his son to die for our sins? Is it any more retarded than Buddha sitting beneath a tree for twenty years?
    Stan: Yeah, it's way, way more retarded.

    Check out germany: you must pay 8-9% of your income to be a Christian.

    Given, it doesnt seem to really be money grubbing, but it is paying to be admitted into the faith.

    Actually, Isaac Hayes (the voice of Chef) had a stroke last year, which is why he was on very few episodes last season. Some of Hayes's family members believe that his Scientology handlers released that letter without his knowledge because he is still fairly incapacitated from the stroke.

    Not only do I find Scientology itself rather amusing, I'm equally amused when people try to classify it with other religions to support their own angst about them all. =)

    Tethe is voluntary in the US, I would think it be the same in Germany.

    Tithing would be on a church by church basis I thought, not by country lol. Never heard of a church that forced people to tithe lol... the people would just go to a different church haha.

    I believe the church of jesus of the latter-day saints (or something along those lines) requires you to pay 10% of your income as "donation" to build more temples and such.
