I think it is so important that they are discussing the contracts that people must sign to become Scientologists. Presently Montana is trying to pass a state law that would require that only US law can be used and not foreign laws which would include Sharia. If our own government cannot address the abuses of Scientology because people willingly sign away their rights in favor of total subjugation to Scientology's internal legal system then what can they do if Muslims sign similar legal contracts and are abused under Sharia? And if we begin to legally recognize or culturally tolerate elements of Sharia as some western countries do, then why not do the same for Scientology or other similar organizations? As Steven and Jeffrey explain, there is no real disclosure or accurate representation as to what Scientology expects of people or even what is contained in the doctrine. The Xenu mythology is treated more like a corporate trade secret than religion. This is a very slippery slope. The enduring legacy of Scientology is that it has established a working model for foreign codes of law to coexist within the US with government sanction.
