The SeaOrg is Not A Religious Order

Mike Rinder has an excellent blog post discussing the SeaOrg and it’s “religious retreat” ship, Freewinds. In his post he refers to the SeaOrg as “a paramilitary organization that runs scientology in accordance with Hubbard’s policies and directives.” —https://www.mikerindersblog.org/the-real-story-of-the-freewinds/ My post is not in any way a challenge or refutation of Mike’s.
