(One uncommon word that is used in the creed is "inalienable", which means "that cannot be taken away." Also the word "man" is used with the definition "human being".)
I think any reasonable person would find it hard to disagree with the beliefs of Scientologists. Here are a few:
We of the Church believe:That doesn't sound too radical or unusual in these civilized times. Of course to racists and others of a like mind such ideas proabably seem dangerous, but you would think that in a modern democracy this idea should be quite acceptable. Here is another one:
That all men of whatever race, color, or creed were created with equal rights;
That all men have inalienable rights to conceive, choose, assist or support their own organizations, churches and governments;I think only a totalitarian would disagree with that. Here is a more spiritual belief:
That his survival depends upon himself and upon his fellows and his attainmentRather altruistic sounding, but we believe it! And here is one more that only a nut could disagree with:
of brotherhood with the universe.
And we of the Church believe that the laws of God forbid man:And one last example, a rather unusual belief for a religion you might think:
To destroy his own kind;
That all men have inalienable rights to their own religious practices and their performance;So if you hear that a particular person or government agency doesn't like Scientology then you will know that they disagree with these beliefs and you will know them for what they truly are.
