It seems the founder of Scientology might be considered a racist based upon some of his writings.

Hubbard attempting to prove plants feel painL. Ron Hubbard wrote within Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought “Unlike yellow and brown people, the white does not usually believe he can get attention from matter or objects. The yellow and brown believe for the most part that rocks, trees, walls, etc, can give them attention. The white saves people, prevents famine, floods, disease and revolution … the yellow and brown races are not very progressive.”

Hmm, does this mean that Hubbard saw something like a pecking order amongst the races with his own white race at the top?

This was recently reported by Zoe Williams for The Guardian in Great Britain.

Stars like Tom Cruise and John Travolta frequently extol Hubbard as their hero publicly, so on balance it seems fair to scrutinize the author’s writings critically.

But there doesn’t appear to be anything heroic about his racial theories, which sound more like condescending bigotry than an example of brave new thinking.

Scientologists often orchestrate awards and special celebrations for the creator of their religion.

Last month they gathered in Los Angeles for Hubbard’s birthday and to announce a “worldwide celebration” about what they call his “extraordinary life” stated Scientology’s official Newsroom.

One man attending the party was Reverend James McLaughlin, senior pastor of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church of Houston, Texas.

McLaughlin praised Hubbard as a “genius.”

“I admire him. I respect him. I consider him to be an angel that came to help humankind to work out its problems,” said the African-American pastor.

Hubbard's great-grandfather playing a fiddle carved with a negro's head Well according to Hubbard’s good book that recites the fundamentals of his faith, saving people is what white people do, while folks like Rev. McLaughlin crave attention from “rocks, trees, walls, etc.”

In fact, it seems that according to the “Word of Hubbard” the reverend would be relegated to the general category of “not very progressive.”

However, Hubbard himself wasn’t always judged as a fount for truth.

California Superior Court Judge Paul Breckenridge probably wouldn’t appear on any Scientology party list. He called Hubbard “virtually a pathological liar.”   

And apparently angered by the seemingly racist statements made within “Fundementals of Thought” Zoe Williams urged her readers to consider “boycotting [Scientology stars’] cinematic endeavors and pelting them with eggs.”

Well, that might be a bit much, but isn’t celebrating L. Ron Hubbard as a “genius” and calling him an “angel” just a bit over the top too?
