Scientology enters the ranks of NASCAR sponsors

Scientology enters the ranks of NASCAR sponsors
Posted Jun 7th 2006 12:31PM by Erin Mays


It's a concept that has endless potential for comic relief, if the recent antics of Tom Cruise and the media scrutiny thereof is any indication. Scientology is presumably making an effort to broaden its appeal by getting involved in NASCAR and sponsoring the Ignite Your Potential racing team. The team's Ford Taurus, driven by Kenton Gray, indicates that the late L. Ron Hubbard himself is the inspiration behind this effort -- the Dianetics logo and replica of the book's cover will adorn the vehicle.

What's next? A team based out of Salt Lake City that encourages multiple drivers for its car? Or maybe a station wagon with a little ichthus on the back... the possibilities are endless.

In a day where tobacco dollars for sponsorship fading, do you suppose this is worse. What is worse Lung Cancer, or goofy doctrine, with (barely) sprinkles of sensible perspective. Alot of scientology I think is based of Theosophy, actually which I think makes sense. L Ron was a whoring, money spending, live for the moment guy...

My mods are ghey...

There was a lot of predominant scientologists before the cruiser.

Frankly, I'd take lung cancer over this, but IMO Christianity doesn't make much more sense than scientology, so maybe it's good, if it shakes stuff up abit.

and every single person who ever picked up a cigarette KNEW that it was bad for them....


and didn't care....


just like riding a sportbike is statistically bad ofr you over a "normal" life

or surfing....

or skiing...

or snorkeling....

or a myriad of other hobbies and activities.......



anybody who thinks the tobacco industry was out to kill off it's own customers, needs to reexamine their mental makeup.....

death is a by product of poor choices......
notice i said choices........


nobody made people smoke.
ever.

amen to that shit. Only thing I can see that ever "made" people smoke is peer pressure in school, but shit, if that's the most dangerous thing you ever did 'cause of peer pressure, you're doing damned well, I know I did tons of stuff alot more dangerous than smoking a cancer stick 'cause somebody thought it was a good idea.
