I think being brainwashed is the fate of anyone that gives up their own personal responsibility to think for themselves and allows others to dictate truth to them instead. My parents tried to raise me mormon, but I left the religion after years of dissatisfaction with things I've been taught. Its funny to watch people be hypocrites and tell me I was right to leave and the Book of Mormon isn't true; only the Bible and older Christian religions are true. I can't help but laugh; it's exactly the same. I don't see how people can so easily, logically, and viciously rip apart other religions, or "cults", and so easily retain their own. It's not scientology that's dangerous, but the failure to have the courage to stand on your own two feet (or allow others to) and decide things for yourself that destroys people.
