It is based on a fictitious book. It isn’t a religion and it has turned into a cult. Famous people such as John Travolta, Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley and Giovanni Ribisi are members. The scam still exists for actors to get into Hollywood with signed NDAs that basically keep them silent. One exception is Leah Ramini who escaped and told the story of this cult.
