Quote
In an unexpected revelation, a former member of the Church of Scientology has revealed that despite the highly effective Dianetics program (which starts with a stress test), Scientology members are highly stressed. This is very strange because almost all psychological and religious advice given by science fiction writers is extremely reliable, helpful, and effective.

For those who are unfamiliar with Scientology, it is the brainchild of marginally successful science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard who said that “if you want to make a lot of money, start your own religion.”

“This kind of criticism is something we are used to; however, we refuse to allow skepticism and antagonism from non-believers to get in the way of our members’ spiritual well being.” said David O. Uschberg, a Scientology representative, as he was counting cash contributions from members.


I don't know how unexpected it is that Scientology members are highly stressed, but who is the former member, and where was this revelation revealed?

Good question. I couldn't find the reference either, but as it is intended to be humor, I let that go.
