HIS MOM'S RELIGION SAID, NO MEDS. THAT EDICT MAY HAVE COST HER LIFE

PERHAPS it's less of a stretch for Scientologists to believe that aliens arrived here in a spaceship, exploded, and stuck bits of their souls on us, than it is for other religions to believe there was a talking, burning bush or a savior who walked on water.
All religions believe they are the, er, gospel truth.
Most religions, however, have withstood the test of some time and were not created by a science fiction writer. "
"The story is about the horrific 2003 murder of a gorgeous, upstate, Scientologist mom, Elli Perkins, by her 28-year old schizoid son, Jeremy.
"And what a show it is! It will make your hair stand on end. "
The unmistakable conclusion is that the burden for her murder (Jeremy stabbed his mom 77 times!) lies with Scientology and its belief that - as one Scientology former bigwig put it - "psychology and psychiatrists are the rats and vermin of our society."
"The Perkins family refused to have Jeremy treated with anti-psychotic medications despite the fact that he'd been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic .......... "
"You will hear from many of the principals involved, as well as experts recommended by the Citizen's Commission on Human Rights International, which is a group whose letterhead explains that it was "established in 1969 by the Church of Scientology to investigate and expose psychiatric violations of human rights."
"Watch this excellent report and decide for yourself. It will be one of the most riveting hours you'll see on TV this year."
"48 Hours Mystery: Scientology - A Question of Faith" Tomorrow night at 10 on CBS
