Scientology vs. Psychiatry: A Case Study

Scientology seems to be having a rough go of it lately, what with high-profile defections that include its leader's father and its founder's granddaughter. The organization also appears to be on the verge of losing Suri Cruise just as she's getting old enough to join in some of its special rituals. Even media titan Rupert Murdoch, well-acquainted with the attentions of conspiracy theorists and parliamentary inquiries alike, is on the record labeling Scientologists as "creepy, maybe even evil."

But Scientology is still heartily charging forth in its epic battle against the dark forces of psychiatry, sometimes scoring undeniable battlefield wins. Unfortunately, aided by unwitting state regulators and media, the Scientologists are slaying creaky old windmills, not the dragons they imagine. Founder L. Ron Hubbard considered the medical study and treatment of disordered thought, abnormal mood and bad behavior as something of a threat to the pseudo-scientific religion he devised to clear up all these matters. L. Ron baked in so much suspicion towards psychiatrists, I wonder if the group's founder wasn't concerned with what diagnosis shrinks might hand him if they ever got him on the couch.
