Why has Scientology sometimes been considered controversial?

Like all new ideas, Scientology has come under attack by the uninformed and those who feel their vested interests are threatened. As Scientologists have openly and effectively advocated social reform causes, they have become the target of attacks. For those vested interests who cling to a status quo that is detrimental to society, Scientology’s technology of making the able more able and teaching people to think for themselves poses a serious threat.

As the falsehoods are proven lies, the controversy quickly fades, and the truth about Scientology, what the Church really is and what its members do, replaces it. The source of these attacks and the controversy that have generated are detailed in Chapter 35.
