In a controversial decision, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) has revealed that ‘Scientology’ will be included in future editions of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, a manual which describes and categorises symptoms of mental disorders.
The Church of Scientology, which has traditionally opposed psychiatric intervention, has decried the move, calling it “insane”.
Dr Peter Miller, a representative from the APA, sighed, smiled and slowly shook his head. “They would say that”, he explained. “The first symptom of Scientology is denial, followed by projection of their own paranoia onto others.” Miller urged the Scientology spokesperson to seek help for his condition.
