Sometimes it’s tough trying to get across to someone what it’s like to be a part of a religious movement that the other fellow has no real experience with aside from what a quick Google search told them. It’s rough because one can get some odd ideas.
I can only imagine what Muslims in the US have to go through, as they face existing archetypes – false data like “everyone who’s a Muslim is a terrorist or religious extremist” or something bizarre that really couldn’t be further from the truth.
As such, it’s such a relief to have a resource like the Meet a Scientologist videos on the Church of Scientology Youtube Channel to be able to quickly give a vignette of what it’s like to be a Scientologist.
One I took a particular liking to was this one of Bishop Fraser, a Pentecostal Minister who is also a Scientologist – elucidating how he has merged and reconciled the two faiths in something that is very spiritually satisfying and workable for him.
Each of these videos is only a snapshot into the lives of these people, but I think it’s a very satisfying one, which says in only a minute or so of time why so many people just plain like being a Scientologist.
