  1. References regarding the position of the Church of Scientology on the LGBTQ community and LGBTQ issues. (Continually updating thread.)


    First, for text, Mike Rinder's essay, "Scientology Homophobia, which addresses Scientology scripture:

  2. Sixth, on 5/20/21, the Church of Scientology replied to a question about sexual orientation as follows:

    "Sexual orientation is not a criteria for membership in the Church. The first statement in the Creed of the Church of Scientology is that “All men of whatever race, color or creed were created with equal rights.”"

    The Church of Scientology's reply is non-sequitur and disingenuous. What do race, color and creed have to do with sexual orientation?

    The Creed of the Church of Scientology does NOT say that “All men of whatever race, color, creed or sexual orientation were created with equal rights.”

    The fact that the Creed of the Church of Scientology deliberately omits those who have a different sexual orientation (i.e., LGBTQ) from the class of people who have "equal rights" is what is important, telling, and indeed controlling.
