Today at the Church of Scientology in DC one of our
staff spoke to an individual named Mark, who said he did not
know that other religions than Scientology maintained
confidential scriptures and asked that information on this
be posted. In fact, there is a wealth of material covering
this practice in other religions. Below is an extract from a
letter written by a number of religious scholars and others
containing some data on this point:
What is worse probably, is insensitivity towards the
Church of Scientology's religious beliefs, which are also
protected rights under the First Amendment. For centuries
and still in the present, many religions have been faced by a
dual need to disseminate their beliefs as widely as possible
without losing confidential central tenets of their faith and
practices through misappropriation, misduplication and
misunderstanding. Thus, as the Court of Appeals for the
District of Columbia found in a 1986 case involving the First
Church of Christ, Scientist, at least thirty editions and
translations of the Bible are validly copyrighted and
protected against unauthorized publication.
Question: isn't "misduplication" a Scientology term? And if so, doesn't
that mean that the above "extract from a letter written by a number of
religious scholars" was actually written by a Scientologist?
Someone please verify whether or not "Misduplication" is a scieno term.
It's not in my dictionary, but I've lost my scientology dictionary and
can't check it.
