Not only has the Pope got a problem, Gary Beals has one too!

(Gary's got the bigger problem!)

He had been tormented for years by voices in his head but he had always shunned his parents advice to seek psychiatric care.

On March 15, 1989, the 32-year-old grabbed a butcher knife and stabbed his mother Lawana before turning the knife on his dad.

Bleeding from her injuries, Mrs Beals tried to defend her husband before fleeing the house and calling police.

Arthur Beals was dead by the time authorities arrived.

Three years later, Beals, having pled “guilty but mentally ill” to manslaughter, appeared before a parole board hearing where he blamed his religious affiliation for his actions leading up to the murder.

Beals said he had been advised by the Church of Scientology against seeking therapy for his mental illness.

According to him, the organisation’s members talked him out of accessing psychological help while “bleeding dry” his bank accounts.

Remember, in the book "The Plain Truth About God-101" I talked about how I saw Ron Hubbard when he was at the Toronto "Org" (Organization) in about 1967.

I don't know what they were talking about but I heard the head of the Toronto chapter say to Hubbard; "Ron, we can't tell them (members) that! They're not stupid you know!" To which Hubbard replied; "Let's just see how stupid they really are!"

That was not only an immediate end to my brief foray into Scientology, but most other organized religions as well.
