L. Ron Hubbard’s great-grandson says Scientology is a “dangerous cult” that ruined his grandfather’s life and cast a dark shadow on his family.

“My family sees Scientology as absolute poison,” Jamie DeWolf tells Page Six. “It’s a dangerous cult.”

DeWolf’s great-grandfather, L. Ron Hubbard, created Scientology, and his grandfather, L. Ron Hubbard Jr., was a high-ranking member for most of his life.

“But he became disgusted about what he was seeing behind the curtain, so he left,” DeWolf says. “For the rest of his life, he was hunted. And he couldn’t even have a relationship with his father.”

The Scientology founder “became more and more unhinged in his last days,” DeWolf claims. “He was lost in his own little wonderland, surrounded by this armada, this dark security force. He was totally lost.”

L. Ron Jr. changed his name and moved away so he could try to disentangle his family from his church, and the family’s dark history was rarely mentioned as DeWolf grew up.

“I had a natural affinity towards being a writer, and my family supported that and made reference to the fact that my great-grandfather was a famous writer,” he reveals. “They would show me his science fiction books but did not mention Scientology. In some ways, he was a very early role model for me.”

    Saw a show on ID channel about this woman who was in the cult – her words- for 24 years. She said they liked to jump in Hollywood actors because they were so needy emotionally. For the non-rich members, that cult is a Jones Town.

    I tried reading L. Ron Hubbard’s book Battlefield Earth once, I did’nt even get thru the second page before I put it down as absolute garbage. And I’ll read just about anything, this so called Scifi book is CRAP written by an extremely untalented hack writer.

    I thought Islam was the original, -authentic- cult.
    Or was that Satanism? Politics is sooo confusing.
