I don't agree with this because there are aspects of Scientology that qualify as religion and can be practiced completely INDEPENDENT of Hubbard and his original purposes and intentions. The church itself I think you've summed up nicely in the above paragraph, but people have the right to embrace any belief system they want in this country. I believe there needs to be a clearly defined line drawn between beliefs and actions, not just for Scn but for all religions in this country. Some of what qualifies as church doctrine should be illegal because it infringes upon the rights of other people. Whether our government will ever get its head out of its own ass and take this much needed step to protect its citizens, I can't say.
