The Church of Scientology Increasingly Embraces Big Pharmaceutical Companies

CCHR.JAWThe Church of Scientology is infamous for its rabid attacks on Psychiatry and what it calls “Big Pharma.” In the tweet above we see Scientologist and OSA operative John Alex Wood going straight for the jugular by candidly and publicly admitting that the true purpose of Scientology’s lunatic Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is, “the total ANNIHILATION of psychiatry world wide.”

Scientology is opposed to psychiatric drugs in particular and all pharmaceuticals in general. This opposition is driven by Scientology’s belief that drugs “mask the symptoms” of the underlying spiritual distress that is actually responsible for illnesses.

Scientology does not believe that mental illness exists. Scientology utterly dismisses Psychiatry as a fraudulent science and claims that “psych drugs” are part of a money-making racket designed to enslave and destroy people by drugging them into a crippled and helpless state solely for the profit of drug companies.

Scientology’s alternative to Western medicine is its own $360,000+ program of systematically exorcising one’s body thetans. However, as Scientology considers its OT levels a “trade secret” — an odd term for a so-called religion — Scientology cannot publicly discuss its OT levels. Thus, Scientology is left in an odd position of negating Psychiatry while being completely unable to discuss its trade secrets which purport to hold the key to solving all of the existential problems of human life.

Given this context, it was quite surprising for me to see Tony Ortega’s story today in which the Scientology father-daughter team of Bernard and Meghan Fialkoff opened the NASDAQ trading session. I say this because the Fialkoff’s are prominent leaders in Scientology’s front group the Foundation for a Drug-Free World. The Fialkoff’s are front and center of this NASDAQ PR photo:

The Scientology Cult takes the NASDAQ open by the the Fialkoff’s as a big PR win. However, 325 major pharmaceutical firms are listed on the NASDAQ. Many of these firms make Psychiatric medications. Over against this, the Fialkoff’s are advocating that people live drug free lives and belong to a Cult whose avowed purpose is to destroy Psychiatry and Psychiatry drugs.

Bernard and Meghan Fialkoff opening the NASDAQ trading day is like fervent anti-gun advocates opening a gun show. That Scientology Freedom of Medal winners Meghan and Bernard Fialkoff must literally go into a Big Pharma stronghold like NASDAQ in order to get Scientology some PR drips with both irony and Xanax.

This is exactly like Scientology billionaire Bob Duggan who donated $72 million in Big Pharma stock (AbbVie Inc) to his private foundation and earmarked the dividends of ~$2.9 million per year to fund Scientology and its phony front groups.

Here are 50 of 325 major pharmaceutical firms listed on NASDAQ. This is what Meghan and Bernard Fialkoff essentially endorsed today when they opened NASDAQ trading:
