Did Anyone See The 48 Hours Special On Oct. 28th?

This was about a troubled young man whose parents were scientologists. since scientologists don't believe in pyschiatry or psychology (correct me here if i'm wrong), they never treated him even though he had symptoms of psychosis...the guy ended up killing his mother by stabbing her multiple times....


go to http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/i_video/main500251.shtml?channel=48Hours

That is a very disturbing tragedy. They apparently see any mental health care professionals as 'the enemy', which would explain Tom Cruise's attack on the profession on national television, an attack for which he apologized later. Unfortunately, it isn't just Scientology that has beliefs that go against modern science. Most notoriously I suppose would be Christian Scientists, but others teach against accepting donated blood, donor organs and the like. The thing about Scientologists that makes this crime heinous is the fact that they do not disclose what they believe, even to the newly converted, until they have spent tens of thousands of dollars.
