SCIENTOLOGY CROSS, a cross about three inches high and is of simple but effective design without lettering or other ornament. The model of the cross came from a very ancient Spanish mission in Arizona, a sand casting which was dug up by Ron. The cross is a regular Roman cross with four additional short points between the four long points, a true eight dynamic Scn cross; the sunburst cross. (Abil 14)

CROSS, the symbol of the cross has been widely used in symbolic tradition, and with many interpretations given to it. The many forms of the word “cross” itself, however, traditionally are said to derive from (come from) a basic root word meaning “light of the Great Fire.” The distinctive cross of the Church of Scientology is symbolic because of its eight points, of the eight dynamics. Above the shield of the Sea Org coat of arms, it not only symbolizes the Sea Org member’s devotion to the aims of the Church of Scientology, but also his commitment to the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics. The cross’s position above the shield also indicates that Sea Org is a religious fraternity within the formalized structure of the  Churches of Scientology. (FO 3350)

  1. Why is the bottom section of the cross longer than the others? I’ll tell ya: because Scientology was designed to compete with Christianity and hopefully destroy it as a disguised vehicle for Satanism. The “Scientology Cross” is quite obviously modeled on a Christian cross which is modeled on a crucifix. Scientology creates a false image of credibility by “suggesting” an association with Christianity by use of that cross, though they never directly claim any such association and are, in fact, against Christianity. It’s all quite ironic, considering Hubbard’s Occult ties. Satan works by way of dee deception and in disguise. Yes, there are other symbolic uses of crosses, but those crosses have sections of equal length. A cross with the dimensions of a “Scientology Cross” is very clearly a Christian cross. I’m not sure why that Catholic Church hasn’t sued. It wouldn’t be difficult to build a case after 2,000 years.

  2. Ned Melnick says:

    Four points would indicate just a regular cross. With eight points you have twice as much– a double-cross! How fitting.

  3. Reg Taylor says:

    The (crossed out) cross says it all,
    THE MAN ON THE CROSS THERE WAS NO CHRIST

    And then we have the Anti-Christ, Anti-God
    comments he slips into the “basics” lectures.

    His son said he believed he was Satan incarnate.
