Description: Hubbard denies that Scientology is in the field of healing, but can cure broken legs in three or four days.
Now, the consternation which can spread through a hospital by a Scientologist walking in from bed to bed and doing Touch Assists and so forth has already been demonstrated on many occasions. And it is consternation. But nobody can confront it. The doctors can’t confront it. Some of the nurses do, but never the doctors. Scientology has done some fantastic things in hospitals. Well, I personally have discouraged it. We are not in the field of healing.
That doesn’t say we can’t heal better than they can. But healing is at such an ebb that if you cure somebody with a broken leg . . I mean that too, cure him . . and he’s been in bed for three or four days with this broken leg, and they’re getting ready to come in and put a souvenir cast on him . . I think that’s why they put casts on things like that, it’s so people can write their names on it and then keep the souvenir.
