    No. Scientologists do not worship God, Jesus, Allah or anyone else. In fact, they do not worship AT ALL. Watch the show, read the books, watch the hundreds of videos made by ex-Scientologists. It's bad news.

    I want to read up on what that cross-ish symbol is and why they use it. It sort of bothers me as a Christian that they do.

    And Scientology.org says:

    It is an eight-pointed cross representing the eight parts, or dynamics, of life through which each individual is striving to survive. These parts are: the urge toward existence as self, as an individual; the urge to survive through creativity, including the family unit and the rearing of children; the urge to survive through a group of individuals or as a group; the urge toward survival through all Mankind and as all Mankind; the urge to survive as life forms and with the help of life forms such as animals, birds, insects, fish and vegetation; the urge to survive of the physical universe, by the physical universe itself and with the help of the physical universe and each one of its component parts; the urge to survive as spiritual beings or the urge for life itself to survive; the urge toward existence as infinity, also identified as the Supreme Being. To be able to live in harmony with respect to each of these spheres of existence is symbolized by the Scientology cross.

    Google is an amazing thing.

    .
    Right there that part is a pile of CRAP with them.

    Scientologists all but CAST ASIDE their very own children. Their own flesh and blood. They DISOWN them.

    Watch at least one epsiode of Leah's show when she interviews former members and they tell you their HORRIFIC story.

    It will bring you to tears.

    I remember reading an article from an ex-Scientologist. She was very eager to attend "services". They rarely had any. When they did it was more of a business meeting.
