Scientology 101: Front Groups, or The Lipstick On The Pig
“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”
— Charles Baudelaire
The video above is a Public Service Announcement from “Youth For Human Rights International”. Youth For Human Rights certainly seems like a laudable initiative at first glance, doesn’t it? In an age where young people are more apathetic than ever, it’s encouraging to see them standing up for human rights. The PSA has a catchy beat and a positive message. Why then am I including this video as an example of the devil’s age-old trick?
Because this organisation is a front group for the Church of Scientology. Its founder, Mary Shuttleworth, is a Scientologist and the organization is mostly staffed by Scientologists.
Many young people unwittingly join YHRI, not realising it is a front group for Scientology. Their good intentions to make the world a better place are misused by people who intend to push L. Ron Hubbard’s “technology”. YHRI was been established with the sole purpose of drawing young people into Scientology.”
