More Religion in Sports

First the Rockies turn evangelical. Now, the Church of Scientology will sponsor a NASCAR team, the Dianetics Racing Team. In his book Dianetics, Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard "isolated the single source of stress, worry, self-doubt and psychosomatic illness—the reactive mind, that portion of the mind that works on a totally stimulus-response basis, and not under the conscious control of the individual."


Hold on, this isn't a fake humorous story, this is for real.

This is a real story. In fact, I'm pretty sure this is not the first time either.

Dianetics sounds like some kind of fancy fuel-injection system.

If a Dianetics team driver gets injured in the race, will doctors be permitted to assist him?

The answer is apparently yes, contrary to popular belief. Scientologists permit doctors to diagnose and treat physical ailments. However, treatment of mental ailments is supposed to be done through spiritual processes.
