In a bona-fide spirit of Christmas, Scientologists in Europe and in many countries around the world gather in their communities to celebrate Christmas.

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, December 23, 2021 / -- In a bona-fide spirit of Christmas, Church of Scientology and their members in Europe and in many countries around the world gather in their communities to celebrate Christmas.

“For a Scientologist celebrating what have become religious traditions in each country is a way of showing respect for the different religious beliefs” said Ivan Arjona, President of the European Office of the Church of Scientology for Public Affairs and Human Rights. “The religious sentiment, regardless of which denomination, is something that is to be protected, respected and even promoted” continued Arjona.

Scientology is proud of not being exclusivist, and in fact you can easily find among its membership, people from Christian background, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim and even of no religious background, sharing all a belief and practice of the Scientology teachings without having to resign. In fact, one can read this statement from the very Hubbard himself, which leaves no doubt regarding the aims of Scientology: "Change no man's religion, change no man's politics, interrupt the sovereignty of no nation. Instead, teach man to use what he has and what he knows to the factual creation, within any political reference, of a civilization on Earth for the first time." Therefore, according to this international religion are called not only respect the religious beliefs of others but to defend them and enjoy them.

As explained in the official website, Mr. L. Ron Hubbard honored the great religious leaders of the past for the wisdom they brought to the world, writing that Scientology shares “the goals set for Man by Christ, which are wisdom, good health and immortality.” It is in this spirit that Scientologists celebrate the holiday season, whether Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa or any other religious or cultural tradition.

There is a code in the Scientology doctrines, and which Scientologists adhere to, in which it says: "To use the best I know of Scientology to the best of my ability to help my family, friends, groups and the world." And because of this, during the holiday season, Scientologists are especially active in this respect, putting volunteer hours in a wide range of activities to improve the lives of individuals and the community, while at the same time bringing joy to those who may need assistance.
