7. You're digging a hole for yourself. Scientology has made up beliefs too and it more systematically

abuses people than any church I ever attended (and I don't believe in any of that stuff any more).

You can go to most churches for quite a while without being hit up for money, and even then, you don't have to give to continue to participate.

You know that is not the case with scientology.

Likewise, most churches don't hound those who decide it's not their cup of tea anymore.

You know that is not the case with scientology.

I'm sure David Koresh or Jim Jones could come up with a non-religious pedagogy too, but it would be fruit of a poison tree, and prime kids and teachers to think positively about an organization that is very dangerous to its members.

I would prefer not to have any religions designing public school curriculum, but allowing scientology to do so shows a reckless disregard for students, teachers, and taxpayers.
