Authentic Information & Answers to Questions About Scientology
Is Scientology a secret society?
Not at all.
The Church and its actions are anything but secretive. In fact, the Church published an all-new 1,000-page What is Scientology?, an encyclopedic reference book that explains everything one might want to know about the Church. Another reference work, primarily for scholars, is Scientology: Theology and Practice of a Contemporary Religion. The Church also holds open house events and tours regularly, and many of our churches open their facilities free of charge for use by community and civic groups.
There is nothing mysterious about Scientology or its members and practices. The Church’s leaders are in close touch with the membership and they hold events throughout the year which are attended by tens of thousands.
Scientologists are actively involved in their communities, visible and effective.
The Church has found that those who allege the Church is secret are almost always those who never bothered to try and communicate or find out anything, in which case they would have discovered Scientologists to actually be more outgoing with information than adherents of other faiths.
Is information divulged during auditing sessions always kept confidential?
