Freedom: An Essential Element of the Scientology Religion

In dedicating the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office in Washington, D.C. in 2012, Mr. David Miscavige, ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion, spoke of “freedom” as an essential element in Scientology. He made it clear that Mr. Hubbard selected July 4th for inaugurating the new international headquarters in 1955 quite deliberately.

“Just as this nation was founded upon the principles of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness, so too those principles are woven into the very fabric of our Scripture,” Mr. Miscavige said.

Religious Freedom for All

In 2011, Congressman Frank R. Wolf introduced the first bill to amend and strengthen the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 (IRFA). When Congress failed to pass that amendment before Congressman Wolf retired in January 2015, Representatives Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Anna Eshoo (D-CA) introduced the Frank R. Wolf International Religious Freedom Act.

Participants in the International Religious Freedom (IRF) Roundtable, an informal nongovernmental group of individuals who analyze and advise on religious freedom issues, have been advocating for this legislation since that time.

The advance of international religious freedom is a national security imperative for America and the entire world.  It is the IAS that is working to ensure religious freedom for all religions, not just our own.

Intensely Religious Teens do Better at School and College, Study Finds

From its beginnings, the Church of Scientology has recognized that freedom of religion is a fundamental human right. In a world where conflicts are often traceable to intolerance of others’ religious beliefs and practices, the Church has, for more than 50 years, made the preservation of religious liberty an overriding concern.

Intensely religious teens are more likely to excel at academics than their less religious peers, research conducted by a sociologist of religion and education has found, providing the latest evidence that the religious upbringing of teenagers has a powerful influence on their academic success.
