Scientology: What you need to know about the religion that promises spiritual certainty

On 10 October Louis Therouxs debut film My Scientology had its general release in the UK. The documentary maker has had a long running fascination with the subject, and the film takes an in-depth and controversial look at the religion. Scientology is a relatively new religion founded by Ron Hubbard in 1954. The film is controversial as often the subject is avoided for fear of retribution by Scientologys followers. Scientology claims to offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, mankind, all life forms, the material universe and the spiritual universe.
