IS SCIENTOLOGY A RELIGION?

by GARY D.  BOUMA, PH.D.



Introduction

     You can find many critics views of the Scientology religion on the
Internet if you search the word Scientology, Church of Scientology or
Scientologists.  Some show opposing views, some show opinions, some are
positive and some are negative.  This is a short one I found while doing
research for my religious studies class that is simple and interesting
from a man who has lived all over the world.

     Dr.  Gary D.  Bouma wrote this in October 1979 when he was faculty
at the Department of Anthropology and Sociology, Monash University,
Clayton, Victoria, Australia.

     He has attended the following universities: B.A.  Calvin College
(Greek and Philosophy) B.D.  Princeton Theological Seminary (Church and
Society) M.A.  Cornell University (Sociology) Ph.D.  Cornell University
(Sociology of Religion).
