We need to examine the lighter side of Scientology sometimes.

Anyone who takes themselves too seriously is ripe for the picking
in my books.

To start the festivities here is a photo of the Halloween party
held in Austin Texas.

Notice how you scan the background looking for the EXIT sign ??!!

Tom Cruise confronted by an ANON.

This has to have been unsettling to him.
Maybe an ARC break session is in order.

What do ya reckon they are fund-raising for then eh? 

I reckon it will be for some village in some small African nation (with some name none of us can pronounce) so they can build a nice new well in the village so the women-folk don't have to walk 10kms to fetch fresh water thereby increasing the life-expectancy of the villagers considerably. 

Ooppps!  Sorry, sorry.  This is a scientology fund-raising dinner isn't it? 

Let me try again...

They are fund-raising for a nice new-but-needs-about-ten-million-spent-on-renovations building.

They are FUNdraising for their local Ideal org.
Auckland`s recently acquired Whitecliffs building in Grafton is
definitely an Ideal org...........
........................................EMPTY !!!

I have photos of the Auckland orgs fundraising
events. I`ll try to get my scanner up and
running and post a few of the lowlights here.

For example there is a photo of about seven masked scientology
kids at the Halloween night.

"you know this mask wearing thing it`s very similar to the ku klux Klan.
And they go out there with, you know, young children who don`t really know
anything about scientology or why there is a protest."

Me thinks using the KKK positioning thing is way out!   

And that bit about the children, could someone please decode it for me?  I just can't get my head around it.  I mean conceptually I think I get it but then I lose it again and I am left with a meaningless combination of words.  Is it actually English?  Maybe that is what I am missing here...some other language...

In his letter to the School, Mike Ferriss claimed that I was taking "school-age children" to the protests.  As a primary school teacher, it would be inappropriate for me to take primary school children to a protest...exposing them to danger, etc.  Unfortunately for Mikey, 1) I never go to protests with anyone other than Once; 2) the only "school-age children" present would be at least 16 years old!

He's just a sleaze ball trying to make the public think that Anonymous is somehow "inappropriate" whereas the only thing inappropriate is him!

Never defend - always attack - he's stuck with it!

The policy is if you can't actually defeat it then make less of it - any way you can!!

Thinking about it that letter he sent to yer school is almost slander in that it isn't true and is meant to do you harm.

I have a friend who spoke to an Asian tour bus driver.
Seems when this driver went past Huka Lodge, he used to announce
that Tom Cruise had stayed their.

My friend asked why he doesn`t mention this anymore.
Bus driver replied. "Tom Cruise...he crazy."

Scientology?s L Ron Hubbard: master musician

So it?s with great pleasure I introduce you to someone who, while very dead, is known around the world.

Just not as a musician.

Do you recognize those golden locks? Some among you will because this unacknowledged musical genius is none other than the man who, although he?s no longer with us in body, is still around in the form of a miasma. And who knows? He may have been responsible for Tom Cruise?s recent yearning to become a singer.

Yes! It?s Cult of  Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, known to friends and fans alike as Elron....

Hubbard gets a mention half way through this article about
the  "Islas Coronados."

Mysterious islands
Pirates, ghosts, gamblers and rum runners spice up legend of tiny Coronados
By Peter Rowe

2:00 a.m. March 1, 2009



............
.... Another Coronados yarn is well-documented. On July 28, 1943, a U.S. Navy lieutenant ordered his minesweeper to use the isles for target practice. By the time the PC-815's third shell slammed into South Island ? the chain's only inhabited island ? the Mexican government was angrily protesting to its U.S. allies.

The lieutenant lost his command. ?Consider this officer lacking in the essential qualities of judgment, leadership and cooperation,? read the official reprimand. That officer was L. Ron Hubbard, the future science fiction writer and founder of Scientology.........

 Hubbard was "Humanitarian" like MLK, Mother Teresa, Gandhi

According to a new Scientology cult fundraising video, cult founder L. Ron Hubbard was a humanitarian and inspirational world leader on a par with Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Nelson Mandela.

 According to a new Scientology cult fundraising video, cult founder L. Ron Hubbard was a humanitarian and inspirational world leader on a par with Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Nelson Mandela. The video, designed to help raise funds for Scientology?s Mountain View, California office to become an "Ideal Org," or massively luxurious new facility, has no narration, but features photographs of each of these figures, usually accompanied by a short audio excerpt of an important speech, and then a bit of text on the screen from a different speech. In the background plays a sort of "new age" electronica music. There is no audio of Mother Teresa (whom they have re-named "Mother Theresa"), and they do not identify Mahatma Gandhi or Eleanor Roosevelt by name. Text at the beginning of the series declares that "Humanitarians of the past have worked tirelessly to build a better world...", and afterward, it reads that "L. Ron Hubbard developed the way for all their goals to be fully realized." Then, a photograph of L. Ron Hubbard appears, in a very unnatural-looking pose that someone apparently thought would make him look contemplative, followed by one of Hubbard?s quotations.

If you can stand any more....

Scientology Spokesman Tommy Davis Confirms Xenu Story

Los Angeles, CA - After years of dismissing the story as false, Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis has confirmed that the story of mankind's origins involving an alien overlord named Xenu is indeed authentic Scientology teaching.

In the exclusive interview with KESQ News Channel 3 reporter[1], Nathan Baca, Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis was asked about the story of Xenu, known to senior Scientologists as part of "Operating Thetan Level III", or "OT III" for short. Davis denied the story at first (as he has done in the past), stating that these were claims "forwarded by anti-Scientologists."

When Baca began reading from a book written by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard that mentions the Xenu story, Davis became defensive, admitting that the story is indeed authentic, but confidential. He then accused Nathan Baca of religious hate, saying that a non-Scientologist asking about Scientology's core beliefs is an "offensive concept", and that Baca was "just forwarding an agenda of hate."

Tommy Davis previously denied the Xenu story, asking CNN reporter John Roberts if it "sounded ridiculous" and saying the story was "unrecognisable" to him[3]. The Xenu story has also been denied by actor Tom Cruise and other famous Scientologists [6]. In that same interview with John Roberts, Davis claimed that anti-Scientology protesters known as "Anonymous" had sent death threats and bomb threats to Scientology "orgs" around the world. When Roberts revealed that the FBI had told CNN that they had no reason to believe Anonymous was responsible for the alleged threats, Mr. Davis stuttered, and claimed that the alleged threats were being investigated by local law enforcement.

The organization is well-known for aggressive public relations and media handling tactics, such as claiming threats of violence against itself. New York journalist, Paulette Cooper, the author of the famous critical book "The Scandal of Scientology", was framed for making bomb threats by Scientology in the 1970's. "Operation Freakout" was revealed by the FBI after raids on Scientology headquarters in Washington and Los Angeles in which were seized detailed plans for the false bomb threats. In 2007, the Church of Scientology in the UK alleged that the BBC sent "terrorist death threats" to the organization[5].

A leaked recording exists of Hubbard giving a lecture[2] on OT III, as well as a hand-written document summarizing the Xenu story written in Hubbard's own handwriting[4]. Hubbard instructed his followers not to mention OT III to any non-Scientologist and Scientologists who themselves have not reached the level, ostensibly because Hubbard wrote that people are liable to fall victim to pneumonia and die if exposed to the Xenu story before they have completed the preparatory steps in Scientology. Scientologists pay up to $350,000 to reach OT III. Those that reach OT III are required to have a safe in their home and to transport the OT III materials in a locked briefcase [7].

Scientology's Funny Photos

The Church of Scientology insists that more than 14,000 of it's faithful packed the Los Angeles Sports Arena for a millenia celibration of Scientology's first 50 years and the "triumph of spirituality over materialism." To bolster that claim. the church's PR operation posted four panoramic color photographs of the Dec. 28 event -- for use by the news media -- on the Scientology Web site. But then Arlington resident Arnaldo Lerma entered the picture, reports The Post's Richard Leiby.

The 49-year old Lerma, an-ex-Scientologist who has tangled repeatedly with church officials since he quit 23 years ago, and today owns an audio-video and computer business, immediately thought he spotted something fishy. He says the crowd scenes were doctored extensively. In one shot he found repeated images of some attendess---apparently added to fill empty seats. The touch-up work left one doppelganger parishioner with no head. In another shot a bald man who had been replicated magically grew hair.

On Friday, Lerma shared his discovery with the media and Posted his findings on an online Scientology discussion group, and on New Year's Day the church removed two photos altogether and considerably cropped the remaining two.


Photo's on this site here.
http://www.lermanet.com/scientologynews/washingtonpost/nohead01042000.htm


Yesterday when Leiby asked church spokeswoman Janet Weiland for an explanation, she said there was no intent to inflate the head count. "That was just a goof when they put it up on the Web",- she said, "It was later corrected." She maintained that the celebration was "absolutely packed...there wasn't an empty seat"

Lerma - who left the church after what he describes as an unsanctioned romantic involvement with one of church founder L. Ron Hubbard's daughters disagreed. 'It wasn't a mistake -- we think it took many hours, of work" - he said. "They didn't just clone people, they squished their heads and drew hair on them. It's only a 'goof' because we noticed it" Later Scientology's Weiland phoned Leiby back to offer futher explanation. "Someone made an independent decision over the holidays to fill in a hole around the camera crew for aesthetic reasons, and when we found out about this the photos were pulled," Weiland said. -"That wasn't okay." (Lerma's analysis of the offending photos, complete with helpful diagrams, can be found at http://www.lermanet.com)

You might have noticed that America seems to be overflowing with lame criticism of Scientology.

Do you want to know just how much of this criticism you should believe?

Well, I have the answer for you - none of it. You should not believe any of it.

This criticism is ALL originating from

(1) former Scientologists - people who have failed at Scientology because they are not ethical enough, and

(2) criminals who have never been Scientologists, so they have no reality about it and have no basis to criticize it.

Such criticism from the uninformed is worthless.

The picture that most people get of Scientology is distorted by hatred and misinformation. Just because Scientology is unpopular doesn't mean it is wrong. For example, many people quote the March 2008 Gallup Poll on religions that found that most Americans have a negative view of Scientology, disliking it more than atheism or any other religion. This is a very deceptive and misleading poll.

The problem with the so-called poll is that most of the people surveyed were probably NOT Scientologists, and probably were criminals or atheists and thus have no basis for their opinions on religion. The people surveyed might not have even met a Scientologist. But the poll doesn't tell you that, thus distorting the picture. A proper survey would have surveyed opinion amongst Scientologists. The results would have been overwhelmingly positive.

The fact is that Scientologists are a minority trying to make the world better with proven technology that is clearing the planet of aberration, insanity and war. Many people oppose any social betterment activity, hence they oppose Scientology.

The legitimate source of information about Scientology is the Church itself. Anyone can borrow a Scientology book from a library, for free, and learn for themselves, just like John Travolta did.

"Troubled Scientology Church in Ireland is now ?1m in red"
Source: "Irish Independent," June 28, 2006

Dublin, Ireland - INTEREST-FREE loans from abroad are propping up the
troubled Irish branch of the controversial Church of Scientology.

Financial documents seen by the Irish Independent reveal that the
church is more than ?1m in the red after running up huge legal bills
in an epic eight-year battle brought by a disgruntled former member.

As a result, members of the mega-rich Church of Scientology in the
United States have had to cough up almost ?400,000 just to keep the
Dublin arm afloat.

The celebrity endorsed group landed itself in a financial hole after a
case was taken against it by a former owner of a sports equipment
shop, Mary Johnston.

In the high-profile case, Ms Johnston alleged conspiracy,
misrepresentation and breach of constitutional rights, as well as
deliberate infliction of emotional harm, against the church and three
of its members. The case was eventually settled out of court in 2002.

The Scientology spokesman in Dublin, architect Gerard Ryan, said
yesterday: "Obviously, if you get into a legal thing that lasts eight
years, the legal bills are going to be simply staggering. There is no
pressure on us to pay the money back. It has been donated by various
Scientologists across the world. In the States, we are very large and
some of the more affluent people have been able to help us out."

Mr Ryan admitted that the growth of Scientology here had been "very,
very small". Eighteen years after the Dublin office opened, it had
managed to attract only a few hundred members. "We have a different
point of view of things. We have teachings on past lives. From my
point of view, I will be coming back next time," he said. "If someone
isn't a Scientologist this time around, they may be next time."

Mr Ryan admitted, however, that the Church's ?1m deficit was making it
"difficult" to achieve things in its current lifetime. The Church has
also failed to achieve charitable status in Ireland, which would give
it tax-free status.

The head of Scientology in Ireland is Kerryman Gerard Collins. Other
prominent cientologists here include members of Mr Ryan's family as
well as a Swede, Anna-Lena Blance, who edits the church's infrequent
magazine, called Freedom. Outside Ireland,Scientology - which was set
up by the deceased US author L Ron Hubbard - has celebrity devotees
including Tom Cruise.

"It is a double-edged sword having celebrity members," Mr Ryan said.
"One the one hand, it i promotes the fact that we exist, but on the
other, it means we can be associated with airy-fairy land."

Comedian Kathy Griffin trashes celebrities, with love

By Eric Deggans, Times TV/Media Critic
In Print: Sunday, March 22, 2009


Imagine your smartest, cattiest, most foul-mouthed, celebrity-obsessed friend, hopped up on a steady intake of Diet Coke and Oprah episodes, ready to dish on everything from movie stars who are secret Scientologists to why Gloria Estefan runs Miami like a pint-sized, pop music-singing Scarface.

That's a hint of what it's like to step into comic Kathy Griffin's world.

Forget about AIG, the economic meltdown and whatever Barack Obama is up to today. In Griffin's house, the most important topics at hand are celebrities, gay culture, pop culture and the dysfunctional behavior that binds them all.

The carrot-topped comic brought a hyped-up crowd of 1,875 along for a twisted ride Saturday at Ruth Eckerd Hall, taking on the Church of Scientology, Nancy Grace's Caylee Anthony obsession and her own 89-year-old mother's fixation on Judge Judy.

"Did the Sarasota gays make the drive up?" Griffin yelled, calling out to her gay fans after an introductory montage of video clips featuring bit parts on shows ranging from Seinfeld to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. "Upscale gays in the house ? thank you for crossing the bridge."

Dropping curse words like snowflakes, Griffin offered X-rated takes on famously overweight singer Wynonna Judd's new diet pills ("You know those pills are just tiny doughnuts"), all the free stuff people have given octuplet mom Nadya Suleman ("You know that wouldn't be happening if her name was Shaniqua Suleman") and Winfrey's continuing weight struggles ("I think it's amazing that Oprah is so wealthy and powerful she just noticed she's fat again last week").

For those who only know her for the controversies ? directing remarks to Jesus when she won an Emmy and slinging a curse word at a heckler during CNN's live New Year's Eve coverage ? it's easy to dismiss Griffin as a headline-grabbing vulgarian.

But her 90-minute show at 7 p.m. Saturday, the first of two shows that night, showcased the oddball blend of down-to-earth cattiness and relentless talent that has converted legions.

Tossing off spot-on impressions of Winfrey's shouts and Grace mispronouncing Anthony's name, Griffin nailed the vortex of cynicism and absurdity where today's celebrity culture thrives.

"I want to see Paula Abdul's head fall into the table once a week ? and she never let's us down," Griffin said, explaining her love for the loopiest judge of American Idol. "That new (judge Kara) DioGuardi made her put down the vodka and Vicodin. ? And I don't know if I'm ready for a Paula Abdul who can walk upright and drive a car."

Unfortunately, some of her best jokes could never make the pages of a family newspaper.

For fans who came for a serious dose of pop culture cynicism with a dash of gay-friendly sex jokes, Griffin offered an evening of relentless comedy powered by her boundless love for the big names she's constantly trashing.

What more could you ask from a pop culture-obsessed pal?

Something i came accross involving steve fishmen, found it amusing.


Dear alt.religion.scientology,

If the Office of Special Affairs hates you as much as they hate me, you
probably have been getting calls in the middle of the night like I do,
where the caller hangs on the phone and just listens for you to say
something.

Well, here is how I handle it.

I keep a copy of OT III on my pillow at night.  Whenever the phone
rings and no one answers when I say hello, I start reading page one of
OT III. 

I started doing this a week ago and I have been keeping stats.  They
don't call as much as they did during the previous two weeks.

You know what it is --- they hear this stuff and they think they are
going to get pneumonia and die, because "Ron" said so.

I'll tell you what.  If you call me up in the middle of the night and I
read you a Xenu bedtime story and you DO get pneumonia and die (because
you believe it will really happen), then be sure and have the executor
of your estate call me up in the morning so I know where to send
flowers.

Executor of your estate?  Who am I kidding?  How many people in
Scientology do you know that have any money left?  Ha!  Not too many, I
thought so. 

By the way, for all you newbies who have not learned yet how to
download any of the 104 web sites on the world wide web where the OT
levels are, all you have to do is call me up at three in the morning
and don't say anything, and I will read it to you!  Hell, I almost have
it memorized with as many harassing phone calls as I get.

Oh, you need my number, that's right.  It is (954) 434-9777.  The cult
has it already, so there I have no fear in publishing it. 

Wow.  I can just see it now.  The U.S. marshals come crashing into my
house in the middle of the night with Helena Kobrin to seize my
telephones.....

I thought of putting OT III on my answering machine, but normal people
who call me would think I'm nuts. 

What is the moral of this story?

Words can only hurt you or frighten you if you let them.

OT III is just a stupid story line which no serious science fiction
buff would give any thought to.

And Cory, you thought it was a "holy scripture."  What a shmuck....


With Best Wishes,


Steve Fishman

Scientology..... The musical

Weird Science: Scientology! the Musical
The Annoyance isn't done with Scientology yet.
Quintin Slovek
Issue date: 4/8/09 Section: Diversions

   
   

It's hard to think of a religion that is more central to the national comedic consciousness than Scientology. The Annoyance Theatre's new show Scientology! The (Unauthorized) Musical is an erstwhile attempt to tap into this trend, and an overall whimsical effort at getting on one of Scientology's infamous "Suppressive Person" lists. Yet, Scientology! comes across as a satire where a sharp cast handles mostly dull material. Even as new concerns have emerged about Scientology's litigious attempts to drive the First Amendment from the Internet (the recent Mark Bunker YouTube controversy), it seems as though the Xenu-mockery is becoming old hat. What can be said that hasn't already been addressed? By now it's almost a matter of public knowledge that Scientology is a celebrity-obsessed quasi-religious tax haven that sues its critics and detractors aggressively. Who can forget Isaac Hayes' defection from the South Park cast after the infamous "Trapped in the Closet" episode? Tom Cruise has become a one-man lightning rod for public ridicule. People can't even listen to a Beck album without thinking of the infamous Hubbard and his wacky celebrity cronies. Claims of superpowers, ludicrous "session" fees and the infamy of the cult's pulp fiction-writing patriarch may make Scientology an easy target, but ultimately the Annoyance manages to show us why it's one that's worth having in our satirical sights.

Directed by Jennifer Estlin, who (knock on wood) hasn't been sued yet, Scientology! The (Unauthorized) Musical pulls from a wonderful collection of Annoyance talent to bring forth a raunchy, corny and whimsical satire of a world waiting for Xenu's return. Pondering the question, "what if they're right," Scientology! depicts two weird couples, a creep named Glen and an addled Army officer (the ever-funny Chris Witaske) as they prepare for a Close Encounter in the Scientologist town of Clearwater, Fla. As the world waits with baited breath for the alien arrival, the U.S. government hands over control to the people most prepared for such an unlikely event: that's right, the Scientologists. Though the plot is a bit contrived, this hardly has any bearing on this raucous, ridiculous and somewhat aimless production. What's more important is the way that Scientology! showcases some of the best and brightest of its ensemble in an effort to mock the inherent absurdities of the controversial religion and indeed all religions. Annoyance regulars Dan Jessup and Wes Haney (iO's Guy Friends series) emerge in particular as wicked masterminds of satire, portraying an unraveling newscaster and an unhinged aquarium arsonist, respectively. Witaske has some great but goofy moments as a sexually confused Army officer who is easily seduced into Scientology (so that he can talk to animals), and Aidy Bryant's depiction of a paranoid battleaxe Christian housewife is brilliant. Despite the name and satirical aim of Scientology! The (Unauthorized) Musical, Estlin and the ensemble manage to address a couple dozen contemporary topics, not all of which have to do with Tom Cruise and the disaster that was Battlefield Earth.

Post by: Ididntcomeback on April 10, 2009, 10:18:05 PM
In response to the above " Sex and Scientology" article...

In the past, Scientology promotion could be found on Usenet groups and press releases. Now, sites like this have been added to their arsenal, as teams of "citizen journalist" Scientologists have begun adding promotional articles to the mix.

The most informative thing about these articles is the commentary exchange following a provocative topic. On this site, you can read about how Scientology might enhance your sex life, or how children wish to grow up "just like L. Ron Hubbard," the founder of Scientology. Then too, there's the article inexplicably entitled "It is Hopeless to Not Be a Scientologist," which suggests they are about to take over the world, so you'd better get on board.

Amusingly, there is also a rant claiming that Scientology critics are all criminals or ex-members who simply weren't ethical enough for the organization.

These pieces are all by the same writer, who is doing his best to get people to look at Scientology-produced sites which, surprise surprise, promote Scientology!

Unfortunately for the writer, he has become a straight man for a large number of well-informed Scientology critics; people who have done a lot of research and are able to refute the lies, misleading statements, and slippery Scientology "logic" that is
typical of Scientology PR flacks.

Why the desperate attempt to promote and defend Scientology? In January of 2008, the number of critics exploded as people on
the Internet decided they'd had enough of this cult trying to censor information online. Since then, thousands of internal Scientology documents were made public. Ex-members, emboldened by the sheer number of critics, began to speak out. Some have launched lawsuits against cult abuses; human trafficking, forced abortion and abuse are being exposed. The stories from these people have a thematic coherence of shared experience.

Scientology representatives attack the messenger, deny the allegations, and squall about "religious bigotry" and persecution. At the same time, it is clear that new membership has plummeted, but those still "in" insist that Scientology is expanding; in part because local chapters are being pressed to buy large buildings which are then signed over to the Mother Ship at the top of the corporate ladder. These buildings are "proof" that the organization is growing; the fact that many of these properties are unused and not maintained escapes them.

It's been a hard time for Scientology. Since 2008 began, there have been high level defections, lawsuits launched against them for fraud, practicing medicine without a license, and other charges in France and Belgium. Germany continues to monitor them, viewing the group as a threat to their constitution.

Scientology front groups have been exposed and mocked. Their "drug rehab" program, Narconon, has seen the collapse of several of their flagship facilities. Second Chance, a knockoff of Narconon, was expelled from Albuquerque due to a comedy of errors culminating with the disappearance of kitchen appliances that vanished when the front group sneaked out in the middle of the night.

And every time a Scientologist tries to promote the unscientific, bogus teachings from a drug using, college dropout pulp fiction hack, someone is there to point out the flaws in their arguments. Scientologists become straight men to educated, well informed individuals whom they inevitably label criminals. What follows is a superb demonstration of the Scientologists' severe lack of critical thinking skills, dodgy logic, and a willingness to outright lie in order to make a point. Unfortunately, these lies are easily refuted by people who understand the difference between anecdotal testimonials and documented proof.

Every argument they offer in defense consists of ad hominem attacks on their critics, links to Scientology websites, and unsubstantiated statements of "fact" that are easily disproven.

Readers might be curious as to why the sudden spate of essays promoting this destructive organization. It is because they are desperate; their public outreach is being slowly shut down, one front group after another. Their attempts to position themselves as human rights activists are being challenged by their own history of abuses.

Simply put, a better informed populace is no longer ignorant of Scientology's fifty year history of espionage, abuse and lies. And they simply cannot back up their arguments in the face of solid evidence as high profile issues such as the death of Jett Travolta focus attention on their dangerous, destructive beliefs. The organization's attempt to censor information is failing. It's hard to claim to champion free speech when clearly, the only free speech they support is their own.

This is not a religious issue, although Hubbard stated more than once that Scientology is not a religion. People are speaking out against the abuses, the intolerance, the fraud, intimidation and lies the organization wields as weapons to terrorize and silence their critics.

It's not working any more. Too many eyes are watching. As more citizens become aware of the true nature of Scientology, the impact on politicians will be evident. A relationship with Scientology will be seen as political suicide on a par with a relationship with the KKK or the American Nazi Party.

The sun is setting on the Scientology empire. Buckle up, and enjoy the ride. Popcorn is encouraged.

                         Scientology invades Baptist convention
         
CATEGORY
Health & Medicine
TAGS
cincinnati, baptists, scientology, medicine, mental health
A Cincinnati Baptist Church held a convention on mental and physical health this weekend in Cincinnati. Churches such as this one are increasingly providing conventions such as this to bring in doctors and mental health councilors who can talk with their parishioners and test them or advise them on health issues. In today's economy and many increasingly going without medical benefits, events such as this may be their only way to meet with health professionals at no cost and receive advice and information that could lead them to affordable care.

What started as a simple function to help those who seeking care turned into a strange comic like event involving cultist infiltrators into the convention who were then followed by a mysterious group of masked protesters who came to warn the convention goers against the menace that walked among them.

While the parishioners of the church came into the convention center seeking advice and to learn about important health issues from medical professionals, another group of people came slinking in behind them with a separate agenda. Sporting clipboards with questionnaires and pink flyers railing against psychiatry and the medical industry, Scientologists came in seeking the names and phone numbers of those attending the convention. But you wouldn't hear from them that they were out recruiting for the so called "Church" of Scientology, a non christian cult that is in direct competition with the Baptist Church as well as against many forms of medical treatment and all forms of psychiatric treatment. Revelations of who they really were would come later when those who gave out their information were invited into their "org" building and struck with a high pressure sales pitch that would put them on the path to changing from Baptists to Scientologists.

Convention security caught the soliciting Scientologists and threw them out multiple times before another group showed up, a masked group of protesters known as Anonymous. The Baptists were at first concerned their convention was being targeted. However the Baptist Church representative in charge of the convention came out to speak to the protesters to find out why they were outside wearing masks and learned the real reason they were there... to warn the Baptists that the people with the clipboards and pink flyers were there to try to lure them into the Cult of Scientology. The representative was quite upset to find out they were being targeted and moved quickly to announce over the loudspeaker system to everyone inside to avoid giving personal information to the Scientologists and that they were non Christian cult members trying to poach Baptist membership with fake questionnaires and "personality" tests. The warning given to all, the Anonymous protesters moved back to protesting the Scientology cult building a block away.

This kind of infiltration of medical based conventions by Scientology cult members is nothing new and plays out in many major cities across the US, often unbeknownst to those running the events. Thankfully many citizens are using their power of free speech and anonymity to come out and face down the cultists and to warn those who are running these helpful events that they are being lied to by the cultist recruiters who come in under the guise of providing their own form of "help".

So if you or your church are going to be running one of these conventions, beware of infiltrators bearing clip boards and who are evasive about who they are or simply claim they are there to talk about "Dianetics". Beef up your security and screening and involve law enforcement to remove the Scientology recruiters in case you need to get an injunction to keep them off the premises in the future.

The comments are worth a read here as well

                                 Scientology as Personality Disorder

CATEGORY
Religion & Theology
TAGS
antisocial, scientology, anonymous, protest, chanology


While reading through the definitions of personality disorders, it occurred to me that groups too can exhibit those traits. So as an exercise let's see how Scientology fares when looking over the characteristics of a personality disorder. Let's start with the characteristics common to all types of personality disorders. Quoted materials are from the NIH.gov website

"Symptoms have been present for an extended period of time, are inflexible and pervasive..."

The rules concerning scientology are inflexible, rigid and not subject to change or modification under any circumstances. The tech is perfect as it is, hence unchanging and unchangeable. In fact the scientology writings are considered sacred scriptures and to change them is one of the worst crimes scientology has.

"The symptoms have caused and continue to cause significant distress or negative consequences in different aspects of the person's life."

We can certainly see the distress and negative consequences of scientology. They are hounded in Europe, lawsuits are being filed for human trafficking in California and protesters show up on their doorsteps at least once a month to point out the abuses scientology engages in.

"Symptoms are seen in at least two of the following areas:
?Thoughts (ways of looking at the world, thinking about self or others, and interacting)
?Emotions (appropriateness, intensity, and range of emotional functioning)
?Interpersonal Functioning (relationships and interpersonal skills)
?Impulse Control"

Scientology teaches their adherents that they will become Homo novus, new man, no longer Homo sapiens like the rest of us, and yet when confronted with the slightest confound even the highest level scientologist, the so called OT8s, collapse into name calling and curtain tech. They say they are the ones best able to communicate and yet when the situation calls for a dialog they instead rant and rave about how unfair and intolerant their opponents are. Scientology has NO honorable opponents and can have none because opposition to scientology is of itself cause for a scientologist to hate that person, to think the person is a suppressive person, evil.
So in general there is enough to think there is something to this line of thought. Next, let's look at the specifics of several personality disorders to see if we can diagnose scientology. Personality disorders are categorized into three types with several disorders in each category. So let's read through the lists and see what we find.

"Cluster A is characterized by odd, eccentric thinking or behavior" and include: Paranoid personality disorder, Schizoid personality disorder and Schizotypal personality disorder.

In reading through the list of symptoms for the Cluster A group, the schizoid types aren't relevant, but the paranoid disorder had some interesting symptoms.

"Distrust and suspicion of others"?just read the CCHR website or realize that scientologists are taught that reporters and police are Merchants of Chaos
"Believing that others are trying to harm you"?simple peaceful protests are considered terrorism
"Emotional detachment"?not detachment so much as surgery, they are taught to excise all emotions under 2.0 on their Tone Scale.
"Hostility"?Scientologists are taught to think in terms of black and white, good and bad, and to label everything they encounter as one or the other. So they can't avoid thinking their opponents are not just wrong but bad and evil.

"Cluster B. These are personality disorders characterized by dramatic, overly emotional thinking or behavior and include: Antisocial, Borderline, Histrionic, Narcissistic"

"The symptoms of antisocial personality disorder include a longstanding pattern (after the age of 15) of disregard for the rights of others. There is a failure to conform to society's norms and expectations that often results in numerous arrests or legal involvement as well as a history of deceitfulness where the individual attempts to con people or use trickery for personal profit."

These characteristics have been apparent long before scientology's fifteenth birthday, but around that time, 1965, was when the Fair Game policies were being made explicit.

Other symptoms include:
"Anger and arrogance"?interacting with the typical scientologist at a protest is to see their philosophy laid out stark and plain for all to see. They either try to bull bait and intimidate or they run away. And for an example of arrogance watch the Tom Cruise video when he tells the world that only scientologists can help.

"Capable of acting witty and charming"?when it suits their purpose, meaning when they smell raw meat or some advantage to accrue to scientology they can indeed fake a good smile. They work with others when it suits their purpose.

"Good at flattery and manipulating other people's emotions"?oh yeah. How else do they get recruits other than love bombing and other fun methods. And to augment this they give personality tests to gather more data to find someone's ruin, that is, the item the person feels needs to be improved. They do this not to help the person but to manipulate them into giving scientology money.

"Substance abuse and legal problems"?from what can be seen, scientologists do not use drugs nor drink too much. Instead, they go in the opposite direction and ban everything, including many medicines that may help.

So we've found a good fit for scientology. So are we done? Not quite yet. People can have multiple diagnoses, so let's follow that model and look what else we can find.

Narcissistic personality disorder:
"Believing that you're better than others"?Homo novus
?Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness"?The Ideal Org, Clearing the Planet
?Exaggerating your achievements or talents??check out the changing number of scientologists over the years. Fifteen years ago they claimed 15M, but now it seems to be 8M. Either way, the number is likely under 50,000.
?Expecting constant praise and admiration??well they do have the only workable tech, after all, so they just want to be acknowledged.
?Failing to recognize other people's emotions and feelings??telling heinous lies about innocent people falls under this category, So does the disconnection policy.

Cluster C is characterized by anxious, fearful behavior. The specific disorders are avoidant, dependent and obsessive compulsive disorders, and one of those describe scientology:

Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder
?Preoccupation with orderliness and rules??they stand in line at musters by rank and department, they have white glove inspections. The staff have rules so all pervasive there is a detailed description on how to dust. And if you don't do it according to the rules, you can get in trouble, even have your pay, what little there is, lowered or taken away for not dusting properly.
?Extreme perfectionism??anything short of perfect in scientology can become an ethics matter. See above.
?Desire to be in control of situations??they talk about control a lot, control of bodies, people, groups. They want to be the one in control of the rest.
?Inability to discard broken or worthless objects??don't know about worthless objects, though those bronze busts of LRH seem to fit the category, they certainly have a hard time discarding old and outmoded tech, such as the Telex, to send messages.
?Inflexibility??they have the perfect tech, and nothing else can possibly matter, so yeah, they are as inflexible as any ritual obeying group can be. No possibility of improvisation. It's against the rules.

Scientology manages to earn one diagnosis in each of the three cluster areas, with paranoid in Cluster A; antisocial and narcissistic in Cluster B and obsessive compulsive in Cluster C.

We come to the unmistakable conclusion that scientology needs therapy. Modern methods, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy have been shown to be very useful for helping people with personality disorders recover and lead a full life.

But in truth, just getting away from the bad influence is the first best step any scientologist can make to become a whole person again.

Anyone know a good therapist?

  Glosslip reports on the Scientology Vulture ministers




Scientology Ministries, known to its critics as the “Vulture Ministries” has “crashed” many US disaster sites. The VM’s have wormed their way into “helping” (I use the term help lightly), in many disasters world wide, and let’s not forget their presence at 9/11!

One could safely assert, no disaster is safe from the Scientology Volunteer Ministries. They show up uninvited, empty handed with the exception of L. Ron Hubbard’s Way To Happiness pamphlets. Pretty smooth eh?

From The GW (George Washington University) Hatchet.

Scientology founder's writings honored at event
Alum Hubbard's novel performed at SMPA


by Lauren Hoenemeyer
Assistant News Editor

Issue: 5/11/09 | News

   

Actors John Mariano (left), Jim Meskimen, and Dion Graham perform
Media Credit: Anne Wernikoff
Actors John Mariano (left), Jim Meskimen, and Dion Graham perform "The Crossroads" by L. Ron Hubbard at Jack Morton Auditorium last week.

Aliens, brandy and guns were the key components of a comedic adaptation of an L. Ron Hubbard novel performed by Emmy-award winning actors in the Jack Morton Auditorium last week.

Hubbard, whose writings became the founding documents of the Church of Scientology, attended GW for two semesters before leaving without a degree in 1931. The adaptation of his novel "The Crossroads" was followed by a presentation on his life before, during and after his time at the University.

Dion Graham from HBO's "The Wire," Emmy Award-winning actor John Mariano from "The Sopranos" and "Desperate Housewives," Jim Meskimen from "Frost/Nixon," Tamra Meskimen from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonator Josh Robert Thompson played voice roles in the adaptation.

In "The Crossroads," a farmer in the Great Depression sets out on a journey to sell his vegetables in the city. Before long, however, he comes upon a crossroads and trades his vegetables for brandy, gold and guns with aliens, an elderly man and militiamen. The proliferation of brandy and firearms eventually causes a war zone and when the farmer escapes the mess, he comes to realize while he thought he was only gone for a day, he was really gone for five months.

Before the presentation, GW's archivist, David Anderson, presented a slideshow of Hubbard's life - including when he enrolled in the 1930s as a civil engineering major. He was a writer and editor at The Hatchet while it was known as the University Hatchet, and his first story, "Tah," was published in The Hatchet.

"His writing for The Hatchet began and developed his love of writing fiction," Anderson said.

Hubbard's connection with the Church of Scientology was left unmentioned in the presentation. Instead, the focus was Hubbard's life traveling across the globe - which often showed up in his fiction writing.

"All of his adventures gave him a profound sense of reality in his literature," Jacobs said.

Hubbard's passion for adventure began as a child where he was the youngest Eagle Scout in America. Later, while attending GW, he brought a group of students on a trip to the Caribbean. He enjoyed flying gliders in his spare time and became the president of the Glider Club at GW, Anderson said.

John Goodwin, president of Galaxy Press, said that the night was representative of Hubbard's literary legacy. Hubbard wrote more than 80 books and 150 stories under 15 different pseudonyms.

Gunhild Jacobs, the senior vice president of Author Services, Inc., said that Hubbard "reflects the totality of his unique experiences in his life and his fiction."

Jacobs said, "His constant quest in knowledge and adventure have caused us to return to the launching point of his career for this presentation."

               Scientology Video Channel: Meet a Scientologist
             

"Meet a Scientologist" with testimonials of Scientology members that are medical doctors, bus drivers, baseball coaches, run art galleries or work as photographer or fitness trainer or PSYCHO

06.11.2009 – Since the Church of Scientology has launched its new video channel on www.Scientology.org, scores of individual videos have been added, most remarkably a section called "Meet a Scientologist" with testimonials of Scientology members that are medical doctors, bus drivers, baseball coaches, run art galleries or work as photographer or fitness trainer.

The Scientology Video Channel provides a comprehensive overview of the basic beliefs and practices of the religion while answering the question "What is Scientology?," as well as information on the many humanitarian programs sponsored by the Church—programs addressing drug abuse, illiteracy, human rights and disaster relief.

The video channel contains hundreds of broadcast-quality videos, comprising almost 4 hours of content. These videos have previously been available for viewing by the general public in Church exhibitions around the world.

By making the Scientology Video Channel available on the Church's website, the Church is able to provide far more expansive and enlightening information to those who have questions about the religion. Visitors to the Scientology Video Channel wondering just "what is Scientology?" can request a free book entitled "A Description of the Scientology Religion" or obtain other basic books about Scientology or Dianetics.

As Scientologists number in the millions and come from all walks of life, included in the online content are statements from Scientology parishioners themselves expressing why Scientology is their chosen faith.

The Church of Scientology has always considered the Internet a resource for disseminating accurate information about the religion—concentrating on using the Internet to promote its message and mission in the world. Since 1996, Church sites have provided hundreds of thousands of individual pages of material and images on the religion. These sites are available in most major languages and are visited by tens of millions each year.

The Church firmly believes that understanding is achieved through knowledge and information. It is in this spirit that the Church is putting this special video channel online, designed to answer the question most often asked: What is Scientology?

The Church of Scientology encourages anyone desiring information about the Scientology religion to visit the Church video channel at www.Scientology.org.

I get google news alerts about Scientology.
In an effort to get in the news Scientology releases press releases about
how theta they are. But just take a second to look at one.
Four paragraphs that say.... nothing !

If one was to condense this into what it really says...
It would read.

"I`ve been ordered to say we like ourselves. You should like us to."

PressRelease
The publication last fall of 9 Scientology and Dianetics books in Romanian has ignited tremendous interest in the subject of the human mind. Add to that the presence in the country of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers European Goodwill Tour, and demand for Scientology and Dianetics courses was inevitable.

In answer to the many requests for more information, a course was presented called "The Anatomy of the Human Mind Course." The course was based on a series of lectures first delivered by Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard in December 1960 and January 1961. It was held in the city of Timisoara, Romania to a packed house and covered basic concepts of the Scientology religion.

The course contains a precise description of the mind, how the mind works, its components, and its relationship to the individual. It addresses such things as improving memory, how past instances of pain and painful emotion affect one's live in the present and how to eradicate these ill effects.

Copies of the original 20 lectures by L. Ron Hubbard, are available in English and 15 other languages through New Era Publications Incorporated in Europe and Bridge Publications for the Americas, Africa, Asia, Australia and Oceania. The Anatomy of the Human Mind Course imparts a real understanding of these principles, one which brings about a vast new understanding of life.

http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/scientology-course-on-the-human-mind-delivered-in-romania,894039.shtml

I have a question... Why haven`t the Romanians themselves put out this amazing news ?

                            Cult Fails "Clearing the Planet" by 1969

The Scientology cult was not able to "clear the planet" of non-Scientologists by 1969, it has been learned.

A recently-leaked "Confidential" 1968 audio tape of cult founder L. Ron Hubbard addressing a high-level cadre of Scientology managers features his claim that if Scientology "technology" (i.e. teachings, rules and regulations) was correctly applied, Scientology might be able to "take the planet within a year."

Evidence strongly suggests that Scientology completely failed in reaching this goal, even by 2009.

Hubbard further asserts that correct application of the "tech" would cause "stats" (i.e. revenue and recruiting) at Scientology "orgs" (i.e. offices) to "triple within 90 days." This also did not come to pass.

The transcript of this portion is as follows:

//////
Do you know that absolutely Standard Tech -- complete, utter, hairline, Standard Tech -- used in organizations throughout the world, will at least triple the stats of each org within 90 days. Couldn't help it. And if it was really applied in a business-like fashion, and nobody messed it up in any way, shape or form -- one of our Division 5 people said we might even be able to take the planet within a year. It is hot! Scientology is so much hotter than anybody thinks it is, that it is fantastic! -- L. Ron Hubbard, "Welcome to Class VIII" (Confidential), 24 Sept. 1968. (#6809C24)

                          News of the weird:


          Sometimes things go swimmingly for Scientology leaders


Scientology trains its leaders a good deal more aggressively than other religions do, judging by the revelations by four former church officials to the St. Petersburg Times in June.

In an exercise concocted by founder L. Ron Hubbard, leaders who screw up are taken out to sea and forced off a gangplank with the admonition, "We commit your sins and errors to the deep and trust you will rise a better Thetan (immortal spiritual being)."

The rituals can also take place in a cold swimming pool, with the transgressors in business suits. Also, to test leaders' commitment, the head Scientologist, with a boombox, conducts games of musical chairs to reward the last man sitting (using the music of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody": "Is this the real life? / Is this just fantasy? / Caught in a landslide / No escape from reality").

Religion: Scientology, donations to charity and Christian coverage

Posted by Letters editor

Scientology story didn't give faith, its leaders a fair chance

The Seattle Times recently printed a story about my church that originally was published in The St. Petersburg Times ["Report: Violence common among Scientology managers," seattletimes.com, Nation & World, June 21]. The story lays bare the bias that newspaper has against my faith, and with only a few quotes from Church of Scientology representatives, it didn't even vaguely give the appearance of a balanced report. It was a disappointment that The Seattle Times republished this biased story.

The article uncritically accepts as truth statements from a handful of former church staff without ever addressing their lack of credibility, their underlying motivations and the voluminous evidence proving their stories were false. These individuals lost their positions of authority within the church for incompetence and for serious misconduct. The sources named in the article plainly targeted the man who removed them, David Miscavige.

Seattle Times readers should be aware that Miscavige had agreed and made arrangements to be interviewed in Clearwater, Fla., in early July. The article was rushed to press without hearing from Miscavige, much less the dozen other church executives who traveled to Clearwater specifically to talk to reporters.

The portrayal of Miscavige is completely contrary to his true personality and is belied by the respect and admiration he has earned from millions of Scientologists worldwide for his leadership. We've witnessed unprecedented growth under his stewardship and fully expect more expansion in the years to come.

                    OPEN LETTER TO KEVIN OWEN

Dear Kevin,
                 My "stress or condition" is that I am worried that someone who
is unqualified is messing with people`s minds in the community.
Can you provide some empirical evidence that what you is of any permanent
benefit ?

Perhaps if you could submit your research and findings to an independant
university for verification. I would even feel reassured  if you allowed "Consumer magazine" to verify your claims.

I am worried that you are basing your claims on anecdotal evidence,
rather than clinical testing.
I also think people have a right to know your philosophy on failed cases.

Could you please provide your policy on dealing with disgruntled customers.
You see I`m concerned that people for whom your methods don`t work and speak out, will be threatened,  intimidated, and ostracized  if they speak out.

Yours Sincerely,
                         ididntcomeback

PS. I am a CLEAR !!

 Forget Scientology! Shiantology is the new celeb-related religion that revolves around Shia LaBeouf

Shia LaBeouf fans looking for a new religion are in luck: "Shiantology" is here.

Based on the "Transformers" star, who's been dubbed their "Messiah," the fictional Shiantology was created by a group of zealous LaBoeuf fans who ask, "Find yourself questioning religion? Scared to death by Tom Cruise? Then Shiantology may be for you."

The tongue-in-cheek religion appreciates LaBeouf's "immortal spirit, Shiacarnation" and "an extrascientific method of pshiachotherapy (Shianetics)" in what's clearly a riff on the Hollywood-heavy Scientology.

Some creative Photoshopping even features Shia as both Mary and the baby Jesus, while candid pix of LaBeouf include some goofy candid party shots.

Though the site claims Shiantology is characterized by "a belief in the power of Shia's spirit to clear itself of past painful experiences (in particular, hand smashing car and drunken outbursts in Walgreens) through self-knowledge, spiritual fulfillment and copious amounts of Arizona Ice Tea," the actor might need more than a fictional religion to live down those past disasters.


Then again, Arizona Ice Tea sounds like a good start. Amen.

                    Support Surges for Scientology Leader
 
All around the world, celebrities and every-day folk, Scientologist and non-Scientologist alike, have flocked to align themselves with the growing rush of support for the leader of the Church of Scientology.
 

 
                           FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Aug 16, 2009 – An enormous guided laser beam of support has come for Scientology CEO and Ecclesiastic Leader Mr David Miscavige, in the wake of brutal and insane attacks against him by the St Petersburg Times and other merchants of chaos.

Mr Miscavige, who has an IQ of over 140, has been the victim of attacks launched by this so-called "newspaper," as well as websites that cited the fraudulent accounts of Scientology traitors, totally envious of Mr Miscavige's leadership of the religion.

Yet millions of people have volunteered to lend their names and prestige to honor and defend Mr Miscavige's morality and achievements.

Great people such as Dr Iva Ryggestahl, Dr Adly Abu Hajar, Dr Gunnar Bramstang, Dr Bertil Perrson, Dr Brigvil Myrkstad, Dr Finkney Pargilbunt, Dr Skigner Planchette, Dr Felicia Jenkem, Dr Kraken Tentaclo, Dr Lalagy Pulvertaft, Dr Morris Ching, Dr Dan Gundam, Dr Alfred Newman, Dr Fidel Fogerty, London Police Chief Superintendent Mr Kevin Hurley, Mr Meade Emory, Ms Monique Yingling, Ms Anne Archer, Ms Jenna Elfman, Mr Mark Listug, Mr Kurt Isham, Mr Dan Maddox, Mr Stephan Hittmann, Mr Jeff Stone, and many others have all unselfishly been enlisted to the defense of Mr Miscavige, and will gladly back up their support again in court, or provide comment to the press, whenever requested.

Indeed, Dr Adly Abu Hajar, a muslim, fully endorsed the characterization of Scientology's Clearwater, Florida as “Mecca”, a Holy City on a par with the one in Saudi Arabia, and the center of expansion for the best and fastest growing religion of the 21st century under Scientology's benign but firm religious ethics.

These are in addition to the tens of millions of other Scientologists worldwide, such as Mr Tom Cruise, Mr John Travolta, Ms Kate Ceberano whose support can be implicitly relied upon by Mr Miscavige regardless of the nature of the allegations against him.

Each of these people is ready at any time to vouch for the hugely massive and explosive expansion of Scientology, and the steadfast ethics of its leader. Each of these people has chosen to lend his or her reputation to the support of a truly great man of good will, despite the ridicule of the media and psychopaths attacking him.

Mr. David Miscavige is Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Religious Technology Center (RTC), and has been the leader of the Scientology religion since 1986, when he was a mere 26 years old.  One of this planet's greatest humanitarians, Mr. David Miscavige has worked tirelessly to boost the Scientology religion. He authored the early 1980's reorganization of Church corporate and management structures which have given the religion years of unparalleled growth and stable, sane leadership.

The Scientology religion is the only major religion to have emerged in the 20th century. It is the world's fastest growing religion, found in over 264 countries, with tens of thousands of new people becoming Scientologists every day. Scientology was accepted as a religion by the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in 1993. Scientology has also been declared a bona-fide religion by Mr. Frank Flinn, Adjunct Professor of Sociology at the Washington University of St. Louis. Urbano Alonso Galan of the Vatican agrees with him. Scientologists in the United States enjoy tremendous tax advantages, not available to members of other religions. Many celebrities are Scientologists, and ordinary public Scientologists sometimes get to meet them. As members of a minority religion, Scientologists deserve to be treated fairly, which means that we should be allowed to do things that other groups may not do. In this way, we are just a little bit compensated for all of our humanitarian efforts and our sharing of Mr. L. Ron Hubbard's extremely workable technology.

Undercover Adam focuses on the Scientologists

Naked Communications boss Adam Ferrier has followed up on his investigation into the marketing activities of the Advanced Medical Institute with an even larger target – the Church of Scientology. 

Adam FerrierIn June, Ferrier – a trained psychologist and managing partner at communications agency Naked - went undercover to examine the sales practices of the AMI.

This time, as he recounts in his blog, he examined the Church of Scientology’s methods in bringing in new membership. He walked into the COS building in Sydney as a general member of the public. After being shown a recruitment video, he was asked to take a personality test. He reveals:

    “According to the test the three scales that are about ‘Me’ show that I am completely Unstable, very Depressed, and very Nervous. The scales to do with ‘Work’ show I’m Active and Aggressive, and totally irresponsible. And the last scales, how I relate to ‘Others’, show I’m very Critical, and have a Lack of Accord with others. This was Diane’s cue to tell me how depressing my life was, and how much I needed help.”

But Ferrier argues:

    “Also, for the record I’m a relatively happy, stable and calm person (albeit a little weird). I’ve taken many scientifically validated psychological tests in the past (through training, and professional interest) and all point to a significantly different personality profile than the one suggested by the COS.”

Ferrier has also worked with AusPol to get the views of the public on the Church of Scientology. The results – featuring a poll of 1500 people – suggest that 85% of Australians do not believe it is a real religion.

      Scientology’s personality test, is the tip of the iceberg of their scam, but still important because what other “religion,” gives you a “personality test” to determine what is wrong with you, and why you need their beliefs.

      It is patently bogus, a sales gimmick, to snag in gullible and vulnerable people.

      The meat of Scientology is even more horrifying, the slow brainwashing process they use in their “training routines” and course work. Members go from thinking for themselves, to slowly adopting Scientology quackery, as the absolute truth. It is done so subtly they aren’t even aware of the trance states that are induced by repetition and sessions that can last hours.

      Among other things, they “believe” they are “homo novis,” a form of new man, who are destined to take over education, business, and government, “becoming the law,” and dominating the planet. Hubbard (a college flunk out science fiction writer) instructed that they are to build a “space org” and move on to take over the galaxy.

      I am not a former scientologist. Instead, I am just an ordinary citizen who for years, thought Scientology was silly but harmless. The Tom Cruise video sounded borderline insane to me, about “we are the authorities on the mind” and their plans for world domination, so I read more about them....

     Scientology Volunteer Ministers Help American Samoa Recover from Tsunami

                          Or alternately "What is PR ?"

2009-10-10 23:14:59 - A team of Scientology Volunteer Ministers is helping American Samoa recover from the tsunami that hit the island early Tuesday, September 29. The tidal waves carried entire villages out to sea and killed at least 35.

An 8.0 earthquake 120 miles off the coast jolted people awake in American Samoa at 6:48 that morning. Ten minutes later the first of four 15- to 20-foot-high waves pounded the shore and surged inland, destroying everything in their path.

Alerted to the disaster, Scientologists from Sydney, Australia, flew to the devastated island. There, they joined a team of American Samoans ...

Dear Scientologists,

Do you want to save $300,000 dollars and a few decades of your life?

If so, rather than participating in Hubbard's con game,
simply reach into your desk drawer or go down to your local store purchase a Black Sharpie Marker,
and write "SUCKER" on your forehead.

After the ink dries you will be the equivalent of an Scientology OTVIII without $300K of debt

Found this on line somewhere....

News & Features
From the Idyllwild Town Crier weekly newspaper, 01.14.10 edition.

                                 The IIFC is a hit

By Marshall Smith, Staff Reporter


Quirky, independent, insouciant, irreverent, droll and plucky, the Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema’s (IIFC) official opening night film “Rock Slyde” was, like the festival’s first day, a hit with audiences.
   
A laugh-out-loud send-up of Hollywood, Scientology (Bartology in the film), and the film noir detective genre, “Rock Slyde” starts with what many big Hollywood films lack — a really good and very funny script. Before the screening, writer and director Chris Dowling explained that his challenge in shooting the film for $325,000 in 17 days was “finding a way to make something big that is not.” He succeeded.
   
Patrick Warburton as Rock Slyde, a cognitively clueless detective whose nose for crime is better than his noggin, was sad eyed, pitch perfect and endearing. Resisting the advances of femme fatale Rena Sofer’s delicious Sara Lee because of a childhood spent watching “Soul Train” (but that’s another story), Slyde faces down adversary cult leader Andy Dick (Bart of Bartology) to save his holdout office space in the ever-expanding Bartology building and rescue his brainwashed secretary. And if you think that sentence is pointedly pithy, “Slyde” is even more crammed full with over-the-top winks, asides and jokes including a cameo by Jason Alexander as a Jewish U.S. postal carrier enamored of Slyde’s turn as an actor in a gay porn musical (but that too is another story).
   
“Rock Slyde” performances, cinematography, original score and songs (if you don’t leave the theater singing, “swashbuckle me, swashbuckle, down on your knees,” you’re probably dead), and script are brilliant and of a piece — a carefully crafted piece that is a testament to creativity on the cheap — brilliance without big budgets. It is in fact everything the festival hoped it would be.
   
So clever you could see it twice, “Slyde” screens again at 5p.m. Thursday at the Rustic.

IIFC first day notes
Festival producers and Rustic Theatre owner Shane Stewart were smiling and had reason to be. IIFC banners decorated the town. The interior of the Rustic featured spotlighted IIFC posters. Klieg lights lit up two outdoor Subaru displays provided by sponsor Palm Springs Subaru.
   
More than 25 patrons were ready for the first festival screening at 10 a.m. at the Rustic — 2 long 4 shorts, “Crook” and “Dead Cat Bounce.” Attendance grew throughout the day. Some people interviewed prior to the “Slyde” screening had already seen four films.
   
Pine Cove resident Nancy Borchers spent much of her day at IIFC’s second venue, the Caine Learning Center. “‘From Page to Stage: The Journey of Heartland,’ is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen,” said Borchers. Already aiming for next year’s festival, Borchers said, “Next year I will have a houseful [of guests]. I will invite everybody I know.” Local Jon Brown split his day between the Rustic and the Caine. “‘Yeardley’ was surprisingly good,” said Brown. “A very non-Hollywood ending.”
   
Locals Ned and Peggy Roberts were among those at the Rustic for the opening. “We just want the festival to succeed,” said Peggy. They liked the menu of independent films. “For us, we have moved beyond what movies are today,” said Ned, referring to many current Hollywood blockbusters films.
   
Chris Johnston, owner of Idyllwild’s Middle Ridge Winery and festival wine maker, echoed what a number of patrons noted. “I wish more of the restaurants had been open,” he said. “Attendees were looking for restaurants that were open.”
   
There were some equipment glitches on opening day but, all in all, it was, as festival producers had hoped, a real festival. “For the first day of the first year, this has been a great festival,” said IIFC director Stephen Savage. “I’ve been to festivals that have been around a long time that did not have this attendance.”

And this...

 Wild Man
Reviewed By: Sandy MacDonald · Jan 14, 2010  · New York


You're just going to have to take Matthew Maguire's word for it that he is, at heart, a "wild man," because there's precious little direct evidence on view during Wild Man, his hour-long autobiographical monologue at the Wild Project.

Even when he flubs an occasional word during his highly stylized delivery, Maguire never breaks character: a control freak who has choreographed every last word of this near-robotic bragfest. The resulting performance suggests watered-down Sam Shepard -- who, being truly cool, would not have to work so hard to seem so. (It's not Maguire's fault that he resembles Bing Crosby in a particularly mellow mood.)

Maguire's text is like a one-sided version of the kind of hipper-than-thou chitchat you might encounter at an artsy cocktail party, as he tells us that he has ingested recreational drugs by the score (such as Quaaludes, which he calls "Quah-ludes"), slept with hundreds of women (whose names he says he dare not mention for fear of lawsuits), and, in the capacity of waiter, hung out with Andy Warhol and various Mafiosi.

That's not all: He also rode a headstrong horse who tried to ditch him; spent the night in a pew at the Mormon Tabernacle; hung out with a Vietnam vet in St. Louis; pretended to be a photographer so as to crash a press conference at Ground Zero; visited a Bourbon Street strip joint; and bested a Scientology E-meter and demanded his money back. You get the gist.

Before launching into further stories, he pauses to address the audience, asking: "Do any of you have lives like this?" Not that he waits for the answer, but yes, some of us do.

                        Cincinnati: The day anon tried to help scientology



We did our raid with a twist today. One of our anons happend upon a pile of cult books at a library book giveaway. These are still shrink wrapped and totally unread and the library didn't want to shelve them because they need the space for more serious things like books on astronomy, romance, adventure and giant red dogs named Clifford. So we happily took them off their hands and decided that for todays raid we would set up a free book stand. I mean we feel sorry for the Cincinnati scilons. They can't seem to sell any of those books that sit in their windows and fade from the sun. In fact they now sit in a small side room with a lonely picture of L. Ron looking out over them gloomily. So we decided to help and started offering free scientology books.

Funny how no one was interested in them. We couldn't even give these things away. So we froze in 20 degree weather and enjoyed all the horn love instead.

Sorry Cincinnati scientology, we tried to help! Pity everyone thinks L. Ron was a big fat con artist but you.

                begun to out anons by posting their photos on line.


This of course has sent chills of fear throughout the anonymous community.
Thousands of people are terrified of finding out what they look like.

Finally after two years scientology has come up with the magic bullet that
will cause anonymous members to realize they are criminals who`s days are numbered.

Thank you scientology for helping us to realize how misguided and brainwashed we were.

We have been defeated by your super human powers and your superior intellect

where will scientology have gone ?"

The theme of this year's World Tour is the United Nations International Year of Youth, which has as one of its objectives the promotion of "the ideals of peace, respect for human rights and freedoms, and solidarity."

For the next three months, Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) president and founder Dr. Mary Shuttleworth of Los Angeles will meet with heads of state, leaders and educators in 15 countries to promote human rights education.

Friday's panel addresses the vital role of human rights education in raising awareness of fundamental human rights. Panelists include Dr. Jane M.

Designed to present the subject of human rights in multimedia formats suitable for all ages, the materials include “The Story of Human Rights,” a documentary video that illustrates the history of human rights through the ages; booklets; public service announcements that educate youth and adults on the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; and teaching aids that include a study guide, activities manual and educator's classroom kit.

On this year's world tour, Dr. Shuttleworth will visit Algeria, Brazil, Croatia, Ecuador, Greece, Guatemala, Italy, Japan, Macedonia, Mexico, Panama, Serbia, South Africa, Swaziland and Taiwan.

YHRI was established in 2001 to teach youth around the world about human rights so they become advocates for tolerance and peace. Since 2004, the annual YHRI World Tours has traveled to more than 80 countries and reached hundreds of thousands of youth.

               Amazing Academy Awards Predictions REVEALED!


For anyone who doesn’t already know – perhaps you’re too cool, too busy, or too strung out to really care – it’s the 419th Academy Awards this weekend.

Yeah, we’re pretty excited.

All the stars will be on the red carpet, with their dresses and their lovely suits, and once inside that swishy auditorium, it’ll be present-giving-out time. That’s our favourite bit.

Hence, in the spirit of whipping everyone up into a seal-clapping frenzy, we thought we’d make a few predictions.They will definitely do the bit about dead people

They love the bit about dead people at the Oscars – you know, where they play sad music then show you pictures of people you don’t know, until finally there’s one you do know. This year, that’ll probably be Patrick Swayze. With the moving music, and all of those images of cameramen, and sound guys, this segment will be spent crying very openly and hysterically.

A Scientologist won’t win

If Scientologists really want to be taken seriously, might we suggest that they enlist some slightly better actors? Not one is up for nomination this year. Not one. It’s a dark year for Scientology.


There will be an upset

Mickey Rourke was supposed to win last year. Then, a few years ago, Goodfellas was pipped by the Kevin Costner film about a man who likes to ignore the pretty ladies in revealing dresses lining the walls of the ballroom, and chooses instead to dance with sexy young wolves (we haven’t seen it). There is literally always an upset. This year, a hunch suggests that James Cameron – flying high on the back of that film about blue people being environmentally friendly in 3D – will receive the Oscar cock-punch by coming away with bugger all.

A lady will cry

The Oscars demand tears. Preferably womanly ones that start slowly, like a drip emerging from a student’s bathroom tap, but morph into something altogether more impressive, like rain spatting on the windscreen of a blue Vauxhall Astra. They won’t get those from beard-stroking pipe smokers like Meryl Streep or Helen Mirren. So expect the Oscar to go to Sandra Bullock, or the gargantuan one from Precious – in either actressing category.

Someone will do a hilarious song

This year Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin are on making-it-hilarious duty, so they will probably do a funny song. On the outside, it will look like harmless fun, but on the inside, the child they once were will be tearfully begging them to stop. It wasn’t meant to be like this. “Why are you doing a song?” he weeps, still wearing the fancy dress cowboy hat that made him want to act in the first place. “You’re not a singer!”

Elton John will have a party

He always does. Loves a party, that Elton John. Absolutely loves one.

This is from an OCMB thread. DM and CoS are becoming increasingly incoherent and vague. The entire operation has a feeling of being held together with spit and glue:
Quote:
J. Swift wrote: David Miscavige's speeches are becoming increasingly incoherent. I wonder if he self aware? Has he become toxic and his attention units fixated? This is part of his speech from the grand opening of the LA Ideal Org. In other words, the old LA Org got a face lift just like DM. I drove by the LA Org and it did not seem Ideal in any way whatsoever. It looked like LA Org had won a Home Depot gift certificate and done some remodeling. That's it. Everything else remained unchanged: Unsavory, unwholesome, engrammatic, and haunted by the ghost of LRH.

"Quite in addition to lost Knowledge, so too, have there been lost LRH services. And yes, in some instances, those services never saw the light of day -- and so were thought to be utterly lost. While even worse, the services were in plain view, but lost from all application. As for why: Just as a lack of wherewithal previously prevented broad-scale dissemination of LRH materials, so, too, another kind of wherewithal prevented broad-scale delivery of those services -- specifically, lack of delivery facilities. And that is what stands behind and is the full reason for our new breed of Ideal Organization. Yes, one could cognite and somehow make it up The Bridge when we had only a fraction of LRH's materials available. But it doesn't even vaguely compare to having it all -- which is what truly makes a Golden Age!

"So, too, nothing compares with having it all on the route up The Bridge. And that is why an Ideal Org is not a nice-to-have. It is a necessity. Because only then is it possible to deliver all of the tech."
Weiber, who is hysterically funny, came in on my thread and altered DM's speech. I like this much better than DM's speech:

Quote:
Quite in addition to Anonymous pickets, so too, have there been antagonistic internet forums. And yes, in some instances, those things have crashed the stats -- and so we thought we were utterly lost. While even worse, the news media not only exposed all our abuses, but many of our secrets as well. As for why: Just as staff not being dedicated enough, so, too, public diletentism prevented large quantities of money -- specifically, lack of IAS donations. And that is what stands behind and is the full reason for our new IAS donation levels. Yes, one could cognite and somehow make the muddied field as-is when there were only a few SPs active in the field. But is doesn't vaguely compare to what is going on now -- which is what truly makes for low weekly gross income!

So, too, nothing compares with having thousands of private investigators and lawyers on the payroll. And that is why larger IAS donations are not a nice-to-have. They are a necessity. Because only then is it possible to shudder the critics, the SPs and Anonymous into silence.

               Festivus for the Rest of Us

Festivus is fun filled holiday that has been portrayed only in Seinfeld. What is the reason for this you ask? Well, this is due to the fact that it is NOT a real holiday.  By mentioning this imaginary holiday once, it has become a huge epidemic that no one knows about.  Unfortunately, people celebrate this holiday not knowing that is like Scientology. Someone made it up for the heck of it, and people follow it like it has been around for thousands of years.

            In this holiday there is no gift giving, decorations, nor happiness. You sit around a table, eat dinner, and yell at one another telling each person all that they have done wrong.  It is like a lesser version of the show “Intervention”. The only difference is that no one watches (in this case celebrates) it and no one gets any type of joy or help.

            This “holiday” is all about testing the head of the families’ strength.  It is amazing what people can think of, and who actually listens to what these people say.

American Stage’s one-hour revue A Very Merry Unauthorized Children’s Scientology Pageant begins with six children gathering on a cold winter night to rejoice in telling the story of L. Ron Hubbard during their holiday pageant. Variety calls the pageant “equal parts adorable and creepy, hilarious and unsettling, making it way more compelling than your average holiday entertainment.” The show introduces audiences to the tenets of Scientology and its creator in musical form, including special appearances by many of Scientology’s celebrity practitioners as puppets and the possible arrival of the almighty Xenu himself. Says American Stage: “See why the president of the Church of Scientology tried to shut this play down (before we get closed down).” Pictured are cast members Alison Lea Bender, Jared Porter and Stephen Ray. Dec. 9 thru 22 at American Stage Theatre Company, 163 Third St. N., St. Petersburg, as part of the theater’s After Hours Series. For tickets, call 727-823-7529 or...

                  Scientology Buys Building For $8.5M In Cash Near Coors Field


Church Spokesman Says Building Will House Growing Denver Congregation

DENVER -- The Church of Scientology has paid $8.5 million in cash for an office building a block and half from Coors Field.

The church bought the 44,679-square-foot building at 2300-2346 Blake St. because its 9,200-member Denver congregation has outgrown its current space, Scientology spokeswoman Karin Pouw told The Denver Post. The Los Angeles-based church has locations in Englewood, Boulder and Aurora.

The Blake Street building, once occupied by McClain Finlon Advertising, includes a 90-vehicle parking lot that could be developed, the newspaper said.


The purchase is part of Scientology's goal to establish new, expanded churches in major cities to provide a full spectrum of services to Scientology parishioners and the community, Pouw told The Post.

The building will include public information displays, course rooms and a chapel for congregational religious services, including weddings, naming ceremonies and Sunday services, Pouw said, adding that the site will accommodate outreach and humanitarian programs.

The headline and who used to own the building are the only truths here.
The rest is pure rubbish. Lazy journalists piss me off.

                    The Silliest Business Book in the Universe


When I posted “The Worst Business Books of All Time” I mostly listed books that were considered pretty good when published, but which in retrospect were  useless and worse.

To build that list, I had to examine some pretty awful business books, but I didn’t come across any that were as truly awful as the one I now hold in my hands.

It’s entitled “The Problems of Work” and it’s by the hack science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, who also founded Scientology.  The book is a truly amazing combination of cliche and idiocy.  Some representative quotes:

    * “The ability to hold a job depends, in the main, upon ability.”
    * “One may be both able and intelligent without succeeding.”
    * “To eat we must have a job.”
    * “Once we had the rich to look toward and envy.  But now the taxes that we bear have reduced, despite their clever accountants, even their number.”
    * “The chaos of insecurity lies in the chaos of data about work.”

When Hubbard wants an illustrative story, he just makes one up out of whole cloth, like:

    “One instance comes to mind of a crazy girl for whom nothing could be done… but one night near the asylum an auto accident occurred and an overworked doctor, seeing her near, ordered her to do some things for the victims.  She became well.  She became a staff nurse.  She was never insane thereafter.”

Sometimes the book simply lapses into meaningless gibberish:

    “Until one selects one datum, one factor, one particular in a confusion of particles, the confusion continues.  The one thing selected and used becomes the stable datum for the remainder.”

Say whut?

Now, imagine an entire book full of this kind of stuff, along with plenty of references to places to “learn more” in an obvious attempt to recruit new members for the church, which is apparently founded on the idea that people can use a simplified lie detector to transform themselves into super humans.

Of course, Hubbard isn’t the only founder of a religion who can’t write worth beans, but this book is so wretched that it makes the book Jesus, CEO read like Shakespeare.

Let me put it this way: “The Problems of Work” holds the exact same place in the world of business books that “Battlefield Earth” holds in the world of science fiction movies.  It’s almost worth reading, just to marvel than anyone, anywhere, thinks it’s worth reading.

In his run across America to promote The Way to Happiness, Scientologist John Radich was bolstered all along the way by the beauty of the country and the new friends he made.

Just as the sun was setting on November 23, 2010, an elated if exhausted 56-year-old man with the wiry build of a long-distance runner dashed across the Atlantic City boardwalk, down the steps, and onto the sand.

              Scientologist-Sponsored Anti-Drug Marathon Banned from Jászapáti    Two Days Late

The Church of Scientology has been sponsoring a cross-country anti-drug marathon of sorts over the previous month, stopping in cities to talk with kids and teenagers about the dangers of drugs (the picture above is from Budapest two years ago). According to Jászapáti mayor János Pócs, the leaflets they distribute do far more to encourage interest in drugs than preventing it, adding that the questionnaire forms the anti-drug runners ask people to fill out include all sorts of personal questions.

In response, Pócs and the city council decided last Thursday to ban the runners from the city, which would have been fine, if the runners had not already come through two days earlier. Perhaps they should ask the local pizza purveyors if they want tips on how to keep out undesirables.

                       Scientology gets PR push wrong
                                            Utterly


The Church of Scientology has its press list all mixed up. We got an email through today asking us to edit an article about Janet Reitman's new expose of the group, Inside Scientology.

"You posted today a story," the spokesperson Karin Pouw begins. We're told Reitman's book is full of errors which our writer "omitted to mention". TechEye also has Scientology's official response so that it's available to our readers.

The problem is a search on TechEye reveals that the last time Scientology was mentioned was on the 27th January this year, when Anonymous members were arrested and we mentioned its operations protesting Scientology. In passing.

"Our" writer, David Konow, who we would probably hire not fire, actually works for TG Daily. His news story is here.

We won't, then, be publishing Scientology's official response because it's not relevant and our readers are not interested.

Ed Bryan, OT VIII, Demonstrates the Power of Scientology's Highest Levels
By Tony Ortega Tue., Aug. 16 2011 at 4:01 PM



​While we wait for tomorrow's update in our big countdown, we have a tale today that takes us to the upper end of Scientology's vaunted "Bridge."

It involves a man who, according to L. Ron Hubbard's original precepts, should be nearly superhuman, a 'homo novis' or New Man, practically a god among us mere mortals.

Join us, will you?

We take you to Miami Beach, Florida, where the "Squirrel Busters" briefly surfaced this past week. If you've been reading our dispatches here lately, you know about the epic siege going on near Corpus Christi, Texas, where we first learned about the Squirrel Busters. In a small town there, Ingleside on the Bay, lives a man named Marty Rathbun, who until 2004 was one of the most high-ranking officials in Scientology. Over the last two years, he's been operating a blog that is highly critical of current church leader David Miscavige. In a bizarre form of retaliation and intimidation, Scientology sent a goon squad of church members from around the country to surveil Rathbun's house day in and day out, film his every activity, and attempt to get him so angry that he'll lash out at them. (They call themselves "Squirrel Busters" because Rathbun is still an adherent of L. Ron Hubbard's "technology," and the church labels people "squirrels" who practice Scientology outside the official church.)

As we've seen, different people have rotated in and rotated out of the Squirrel Busters crew, and there's solid evidence now that the entire operation is being run by a longtime Scientology private investigator named David Lubow, who operates a "war room" in a local hotel and keeps in touch with church officials in Los Angeles.

One member of the Texas goon squad that Rathbun has also identified is Edward Bryan, a La Mesa, California resident and such a longtime Scientologist, he's reportedly reached its highest spiritual level, known as "OT VIII."

According to figures recently published by Ohio State professor Hugh Urban, the years of training it takes a Scientologist to reach OT VIII come with fees that add up to about $350,000 to $400,000. And for all that expensive spiritual training, Ed Bryan should just about be superhuman. Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard enticed followers with promises that by the time they had reached OT VIII -- and all of the disembodied alien souls that are attached to the rest of us had finally been removed from the OT VIII through years of auditing -- the now unencumbered subject should have amazing powers: telekinesis, total recall, and basically the ability to make anything in the physical universe happen just with the use of your mind.

Ed Bryan has reached that level of stupendous power.

For some reason, however, he chooses to use his super powers in the oddest ways. We saw in this video, for example, Bryan dancing on the prow of a boat, celebrating the fact that the Squirrel Busters had stooped so low as to surveil Rathbun from a listing paddle boat in the canal behind his house...

And last week, after leaving the south Texas siege in other hands, Bryan traveled to Miami Beach with another Squirrel Busters crew to target another arch-enemy of the church: former Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder.

Rinder was once one of the most visible faces of Scientology, appearing on television shows arguing with journalists about the church. But in 2007 he left, and, like Rathbun but with less volume, has also been speaking out about Miscavige and current church leadership.

But he also needs to make a living, and he's working in the medical technology field. Last week, he was at a trade show at the Miami Beach Convention Center to get the word out about a product his company is selling.

"It's a system of making ice that makes ice that's not contaminated, which is a big problem in hospitals," Rinder told me today by telephone.


​While Rinder was inside the trade show talking about his ice maker, Bryan and a Squirrel Busters crew, as well as Jim Lynch, a reporter who works for Scientology's magazine Freedom, showed up to the conference.

"Bryan was out in the parking lot, on the sidewalk. He and his Squirrel Busters buddies with their silly hats and fluffy squirrel dolls. They had this hat that was like a big fluffy squirrel hat, the strangest thing you've ever seen," Rinder says. "People thought they were morons."

As long as they stayed on the sidewalk, they were left alone by the convention center's security guards. On Thursday, Rinder says, Lynch came inside, but was chased away when he was questioned about his ID. The next day, it was Bryan who attempted to come into the conference to confront Rinder more directly.

"All these guys are trying to do, and it goes for the Squirrel Busters down with Marty, is to try and get a rise out of you," Rinder says. "Get in your face and say something about your wife or get a rise out of you so that you will react and they'll have it documented, and then they can get you prosecuted. That's it. They have no purpose to actually accomplish anything."

Before Bryan could cause any chaos, however, Rinder had security check the badge he was wearing to get into the place.

According to an incident report released by the Miami Beach Police, Bryan snagged a discarded badge by way of some dumpster diving:

    Upon arrival I was advised by convention center security that the def (Bryan) has been warned of trespassing a number of times over the last few days. Today the def went into a trash can on the outside of the building and obtained used credentials, allowing him to gain entry into the event without paying.

Bryan, 71, was hustled out of the place and was arrested.

For some reason, he chose not to use his Scientology super powers to melt his handcuffs with his mind, toss the police like rag dolls with his brain waves, or simply levitate himself out of Miami Beach. We don't know why, but we're trying to reach him.

I asked Rinder if the Squirrel Busters succeeded in disrupting his trade show at all. Not in the least, he answered.

"It was an extremely good conference. And [Bryan and the others] have now alienated and destroyed whatever reputation they may have had with the Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami Beach Police Department, Miami Fire Department, and with the people who were at the show. These people ended up being the subject of a lot of snickering and people taking photos,. They make fools of themselves wherever they go."

Scientologists  have criticized anonymous for wearing masks.
It`s been a big thing for them to point out that anons are hiding, too afraid

                'South Park' Tackles Occupy Wall Street: Cartman Is The 1%


First Posted: 11/1/11

The kids at South Park Elementary are about to do some occupying of their own.

Always twisted and topical, Trey Parker and Matt Stone's newsy cartoon is set to take on the Occupy Wall Street protests in Wednesday night's episode, and they're using a pretty heavy allegory to make their point. As always, Cartman is making his classmates' lives miserable, this time thanks to his weight -- he fails the gym class's physical fitness test, mandating that the rest of the class do more exercise, even though they all passed.

An allusion to fat cat bankers, anyone?

The rest of the class are the 99%; Cartman is the very sad 1%. We wonder if those in charge of banks are reacting the same way that Cartman does while alone in his room.

Oh, and another question: will they react the way the Church of Scientology reportedly did when "South Park" mocked them?

Ricky Gervais series: "Life's Too Short", Scientology Scene



In Ricky Gervais' new TV comedy series "Life's Too Short", which is a sort of reality mockumentary style sitcom about Warwick Davis who stars as himself. He plays a parody of himself, fallen on hard times as his acting career as a famous midget dries up, his marraige falls apart and his agency business "Dwarves for Hire" is in financial trouble. This week Warwick seeks spiritual guidance and in this scene he decides to look at joining scientology. In a place that is obviously meant to look like St.Hill Manor, Warwick talks to a scientolgist who looks suspiciously like the real scientology spokesperson, Tommy Davis. Very funny scene.

                     Get Your MFA from L. Ron Hubbard

                                          I guess MFA is Master of Fine Arts (degree, maybe in creative writing)

By Blake Butler


I’m not a Scientologist, nor do I give a shit about a book like Battleship Earth, one of the many sci-fi novels L. Ron Hubbard wrote before he steered headlong into inventing a religion. I must admit, though, after having recently peered through a couple of volumes of Hubbard’s writing in the manuals he sells en masse to batshit practitioners such as Beck and Tom Cruise: The writing in this shit is kind of amazing. Or if nothing else, it’s often like nothing else, which is what they said about Beckett.

Hell if I can tell you from where Hubbard drummed the logic and sounds in his sentences. Sure, we assume he’s nuts, not to mention a dickface who raked in money manufactured in god’s name, but isn’t that in some way what the majority of all authors in their secret dreams wish would come about for them? L. Ron Hubbard is pretty much just an even more vilified and mega-loaded Gordon Lish.

Here are some example sentences culled from Hubbard’s Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health (which he originally thought about calling The Dark Sword, Excalibur), pretty much the cornerstone of the whole religion, published in 1950, and all of which could serve as more effective teaching tools than…oh, I don’t know, take your pick:

1. There are many demon circuits which snarl up thinking, but these particular “dub-in” demons mean that the operator is going to get a most awful cargo of what the auditors colloquially call “garbage.”

OK, what the fuck? Dude, “demon circuits”? “‘Dub-in’ demons”? I love the idea of a hyper-accessed realm inside a person, their “awful cargo” that masks them from the people who would come to “audit.” There’s a logic here that flexes in the sentence in a way that uses both sound and terminology to provide a kind of wall that makes the subject mysterious, destructured. People seem to often want language to either be plain or screwy. This satisfies both. Fill me with the garbage and let the demons in. That’s pretty much all I want of art.

See also: Ben Marcus, Dennis Cooper, Lynne Tillman, Jane Unrue.

2. “I am a jub-jub bird,” “I can’t whistle Dixie,” “The world is all against me,” “I hate policemen,” “I am the ugliest person in the world,” “You haven’t any feet,” “The Lord is going to punish me,” “I always have to play with my thing,” may be very interesting to the patient and even amusing to the auditor and may have caused a considerable amount of trouble in the patient’s life.

If anything sucks in a lot of writing, it’s dialogue. A lot of dialogue I believe fails either because it is trying too hard to sound realistic, and thereby feels tedious or easy; or other times it wants to keep the motion of the story going forward when it would have just been easier to say what happened. I like the way this string of short declarative sentences and the wall they fall together develop a speech-photograph of sorts, a collage where each prior sentence falls onto the one following and/or the one before it, building something else in its place. I am a jub-jub bird? This is in a religious document. These words are some people’s Bible, and this guy just farted them right out. I’m kind of starting to believe it. Get the ugliest person in the world all up inside you.

See also: George Saunders, Diane Williams, Amy Hempel, William Burroughs.

3. FIGHT CHAIN. 1st incident embryo. 38 succeeding incidents. Three falls, loud voices, no beating.

I have at least two dozen books of poetry that I could copy this line into the middle of and you’d never notice the difference. In fact, last night I read Paul Legault’s The Other Poems, and after finding this line in Hubbard, I had to go back and make sure he actually hadn’t sampled the line. I love that I both don’t know what the fuck Hubbard is talking about here, but can souse sense from it, and it feels menacing, deeper than it seems: a kind of self-hypnotism required in a way at once mathematical and arcane, which is to me part of the prowess of language in the first place. I mean to believe in poetry, like god, you have to be willing to go under. Did I mention bro gets PAID?

4. This is a coitus experience. It has, as its somatic, varying pressure. It is not painful and, by the way, no matter how painful these engrams may be in present time when restimulated, no matter how forceful, when they are actually contacted, their reexperienced pain is very mild, no matter what it was when received. So this is a shaking up of the unborn child, that is all. But it says, “Oh, darling, I’m afraid you’ll come in me. I’ll just die if you come in me. Oh please don’t come in me!”

There are so many sentences in this thing, I almost want to quote them all. Read them out loud!

5. As images on the desert are distorted by the glass snakes of heat waves, so are the engramic commands distorted to the analyzer through the veil of “unconsciousness.”

6. To listen to some pre-clears one would think they read Keats and drank lemonade every afternoon at four throughout the prenatal period.

7. The reactive bank is like a pyramid which is fairly well armored everywhere but just under the point, and which becomes unarmored when the point is contacted.

8. He strikes Mother because he is afraid Mother is pregnant and Father is blocked on Dynamics One, Two, Three and Four.

9. In nitrous oxide the pain is filed and the content is filed with high and brilliant fidelity.

10. There are two little men on each side of the brain, a set for each lobe, hanging by their heels.

11. “The somatic strip will now go to birth,” says the auditor.

Call me an asshole, but dude is going for it. More than fiction or nonfiction, the book is kind of mesmerizing. It scrambles your psychology while pretending to explain ways to the center of it. Dude is messed up. I wish more writers were more messed up. I wish someone would try to take over my mind when I read their novel, make me give them all their money, make me go on TV and jump up and down on sofas barking. I wish I felt I walked away reprogrammed and conformed.

Beyond just the sentences, Hubbard’s instructional advice to a would-be auditor (which, in Scientology, if you don’t know, is the special meeting leader who leads a regular person to spiritual awakening through what’s basically a deformed version of hypnotized psychiatry, which anyone could read as: mentor) reads as better advice for how to reach an audience than pretty much anything I heard while getting my MFA:

Being clever does not mean talking a lot… Being clever in the sense of the repeater technique is being able to pick out, from the subject’s conversation or action, just what the engrams contain which will prevent his reaching them, progressing through them.

And:

The auditor who tries to go chasing backwards through time will find that he will have on his hands an artificially restimulated case and that the work is much impeded.

And:

Time, topic, value, somatic and emotion are the methods of filing.

And:

Be surprised at nothing. Audit.

                                           Galactic OverLord Xenu: My Story
    OVERLORD XENU
    GALACTIC DECREE
    MARKABIAN GALACTIC CENTRAL
    CONFEDERATE PALACE
    TEEGEEACK DATE APRIL 27 2012

    It has come to our attention that one Ronald Lafayette Hubbard, A.K.A. L. Ron
    Hubbard, A.K.A. L.R.H., A.K.A. The Founder, A.K.A. ELron Elway, has visited
    the planet known as Teegeeack.

    This is a person of interest due to the spreading of sedition, turmoil, lies,
    embezzlement, insurrection, civil unrest, and treason against the Sublime
    OverLord Xenu, Galactic OverLord.

    The person known as L. Ron Hubbard, henceforth referred to as ELRon, is an escapee
    from the Xenu Institution For The Socially Deranged (Patient I.D. 2514375-2). Said
    patient is considered dangerous, suffering from megalomania, delusions, narcissism,
    sociopathic tendencies and is consummate at acquiring followers to fulfill misdirected
    goals that are harmful to themselves and society as a whole.

    ElRon usually poses as some type of adventurer/writer of little note, pretends to
    be dissatisfied with the order of things as an excuse to create a pseudo-science
    of the mind and soul. The real reason is to amass personal wealth from his deluded flock, the actual workings of ElRon's claims are deceptions for the gullible.

    The ElRon story about our OverLord is based on severe delusional dementia to ursurp
    our Confederation and OverLord. Our OverLord has instituted many beneficial programs
    for the common good. Having read ElRon's account of the past, our OverLord has decreed that his lies will be addressed to inform the inhabitants of Teegeeack what really occurred.

    The patient known as ElRon, began claiming that he and he alone had made some remarkable and outlandish discoveries, boasting to have found the answers to all of life. As a second rate published author, he had minor connections to the publishing circle. He used those connections to publish books and start foundations. He became popular, a passing fad at best if it weren't for the indoctrination insidiously laced throughout his writings and misleading lies he pushed upon his followers.

    ElRon began talking of strange unprovable phenomena about the mind, interjecting subtle social/political rhetoric, claiming our Confederacy is poisoned and he can reform it. He then blackmailed a Confederate Civil Service Executive to embezzle funds from the Xenu Orphans And Widows Assistance Program to fund his takeover. This of course was intolerable and his claims untrue so ElRon was evaluated and found insane, swiftly being committed to the Xenu Institution For The Socially Deranged to ensure the common welfare of all.

    OverLord Xenu had instituted many reforms and social programs. One being the
    Metro-Galactic Transportation System. This brought galactic travel to all citizens,
    a marvel of organization.

    The next was saving the Confederacy from a virus that had spread through out the
    Confederacy. It was spreading rapidly due to the new galactic transportation system.
    OverLord Xenu collected the best of the medical community and a cure was developed
    quickly with great relief to all.

    Our OverLord Xenu then expanded the Confederate Naval Space Force to insure the protection of our the multi-planetary confederation. Truly an awe inspiring and ambitious goal once completed. Space related crimes dropped dramatically. It became very popular to watch the fleets on live fire exercises.

    Unknown to all, ElRon had converted several of the patients at the Institution to his cause. These became his "Loyal Officers", tricked into believing ElRon could over throw OverLord Xenu if he could escape. Escape he did, hiding aboard a supply ship and later incapacitating the captain. ElRon decided that hiding on Teegeeack would be a marvelous idea, being out on the Rim, a little visited planet while he planned and plotted.

    What ElRon didn't know is that a Confederate Naval Fleet was directed to hold a live fire exercise on the planet. OverLord Xenu was on hand of course to over see the exercises. ElRon was totally unprepared, believing the Fleet was there for him and sent a message to OverLord Xenu, demanding a conference. OverLord Xenu very calmly ordered all life on Teegeeack eliminated and ElRon was obliterated into so much atoms.

    When Elron saw that life had returned to Teegeack, he bided his time, waiting for an
    opportune time to again spread his madness upon an unsuspecting populace.

    The story of his Loyal Officers (mental ward patients) trying to stop OverLord Xenu from the mass injections of a hypnotic/stasis serum to overthrow the Confederacy (the virus cure) to then transport the populace to Teegeeack (the Metro-Galactic Transportation System) and then bomb the planet into oblivion (ElRons own stupidity) is a fabrication beyond the pale.

    OverLord Xenu decrees this all to be true, verfied by Confederate records and witnesses. Should ElRon again surface or his followers continue with this farce, it is recommended they be institutionalized immediately.

    Xenu,
    OverLord,
    This Date,
    Confederacy,
    Commanding

    (yeah, I know, I had to much time on my hands today. Isn't the space opera shit L Con came up with a hoot? ROTFLMFAO)

    WAR IS PEACE
    FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
    IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

        Scientology Photo Contest: Replicate This Pic of the New OC Ideal Org and Win $40 for TK Burgers!

By Josh Dulaney Thu., Jun. 7 2012

Gentle readers: we know times are tough, with (insert your political enemies here) ruining the economy and sending us all to the poor house.

But there's good news! If you got a little Ansel Adams in ya, you might win a $40 gift certificate to TK Burgers we've had in this office for a while.

All we need you to do is be the first person to take an unaltered photo of Scientology's Orange County Ideal Org from the exact angle of the shot you will see after the jump, incorporate every little detail sans the crowd, and email it to us. Ready?

The address is 505 N. Sycamore St. in Santa Ana. Don't worry, I may have been the only ghost face downtown today, and nobody messed with me.

You don't have to bring all the people into the photo, nor do you have to include the two signs Scientologists scrubbed in their shot. Send yer pics and hate mail to jdulaney@ocweekly.com. Have fun!

                                Twitter flooded with Tom Cruise/John Travolta jokes

Since the news broke about Katie Holmes filing for divorce and asking for sole custody of their daughter Suri, Twitter is overrun with jokes about Tom Cruise and John Travolta. According to Twitter users around the world, Tom Cruise and John Travolta, both members of the Church of Scientology, would make the perfect couple.

“Katie Holmes files for divorce [because] of Scientology. Maybe Tom Cruise and John Travolta can start dating now,” Linz Loves tweeted on June 29.

Space Wanker tweeted, “I think Tom Cruise and John Travolta would make a lovely couple.”

                                      : Twitter Takes Aim At Tom Cruise

07/16/2012


Ever since Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes abruptly ended their marriage, the jokes have been pouring out from all directions, not only because Cruise is one of the world's biggest movie stars (if not the biggest) but also because, as we found out when he was on the cusp of marrying Holmes five years ago, the dude's kind of a whack job. Like, seriously.

You've probably already know the punch line to most digs aimed at the Top Gun star, whether it be about his Scientology, short stature or increasingly questionable sexual orientation, but we went to Twitter to dig up a few new ones. Here they are, our top ten favorite Tom Cruise tweets:

1. @dazgale — Paranormal Activity 3 is trending. Paranormal Activity 4 will be released later this year and is rumoured to be set in Tom Cruise's bedroom.

2. @ElKnuckelhombre — The next Mission Impossible movie is about Tom Cruise trying to reach a cup in the cabinet above his oven without a step stool.

3. @LOLGOP — "Why did Katie Holmes stay with Tom Cruise?" asks country who reelected George W. Bush.

4. @jannarden — Personally, I don't mind a man that I can carry in my gym bag....Tom Cruise is perfect in so many ways.

5. @MrScottEddy — Scientology is the study of keeping Tom Cruise relevant.

6. @keithcalder — A manic pill-popper runs from the ghosts of his ruined relationships. Tom Cruise *is* PACMAN

7. @izrigrod — I don't care what you guys say, a Tom Cruise sounds like a pretty awesome vacation.

8. @ChaseMit — Tom Cruise to play Tom Cruise in "The Secret Escape of Katie Holmes." Katie Holmes to be played by Maggie Gyllenhaal.

9. @lleavitt92 — I'm so glad Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes are divorced. I'm sure Katie enjoyed changing her Facebook relationship status to "escaped"

10. @peteec — Tom Cruise, actor/scientologist < Tom Kruse, inventor of the Hoveround power chair.

              Post subject: A story about LRHs clothes... a smiley introduction!!!            

"But that is one of the things I truly love about Scientology. That it is very often impossible to tell if someone talking about Scientology is making up crazy stuff just to be funny--or whether it's Scientology making up crazy stuff just to be Scientology." Hellavahoax

Too true good sir!!! I've been sitting on a wee story that was amusing to me but I could never find an audience to share it with... that is until I ended up telling my mum and wee brother... their paroxysms of laughter have given me the courage to share this now... for those who "Know"!!!

I should explain that I just spent 4 hours writing this story as a masterclass in literature and warmth, only to lose it all due to finickety internety things... hence this is an abridged version... of sorts!!!

Okay, it's the early 90's and I've got the distinct pleasure of being employed on the renovation of a Manor House in a leafy countryside full of charm and summer hope - for sake of argument we'll call it St Hill Manor, East Grinstead!!! By good fortune, a certain close relative of mine is in charge of said renovation... even the Monkeys in the Monkey Room are jumping up and down with joy at the prospect of upstat newness!!!

Okay... well I'm at this time a teenagery boy who has been "allowed" to visit the "Satan Pit" (not my words, my Mum's) that is St Hill... to work on the renovation of the Manor and I am more than happy to be just around and doing just that!!! With all the strict "ethics" of Scientology and the day to day looking over the shoulder, I'm amazed how my "relative" is managing to pull off so much fun... in the face of so much, well... unhappiness.

An example... If we are upstat for the week, all the crew get taken out to London for a night out with much alcohol and music (Teenage Fanclub, The Pixies, John Martyn... to name a few). We were always upstat and I don't recall particularly working any harder at any point!!!? In my own selfish way I was happy to keep scientology working - that's a joke!!!

Now I'm not trying to be flippant because it took a lot of argument and assurances even to be in the position of being at St Hill and deadly humble seriousness was the order of the day for such dispensed charms!!! But... even to the most unthinking of minds... mischief can lie around the corner... ready to strike... all it takes are the right conditions!!!!

So, I've been working on the manor for three months and in a very unscientology way, I'm making money and having teenage fun... who would have thunk it?!!! Now due to the long hours I can't even begin to spend this money and being a wee boy I wonder how I can? A trip round Europe seems to answer this problem but I need someone to go with??? That is where Pat comes in!!!

Now there is nothing worse than someone trying to tell you how funny someone else is... you have to be there. But I'm gonna try, cos Pat is one of the most naturally amused and funny people I've ever met... a glint in the eye, an infectious laugh... he could make Crime & Punishment a comedy lesson!!! And after a whole summer of Scientologese he is the perfect antidote for winding down into ... mischief!!


So bear in mind Pat has just arrived and all this "scientology" stuff is new to him... After working late on the manor we walk into the office and 2 bods from Flag are in, wearing their finest SO regalia, for a reason we know not what!!! My "relative" is informed that "Pat has a really clean space" which is duly shared... all I can say is that the pregnant pause before the loudest guffaw in history still has me giggling!!!

So, not much passes our amusement over the course of the week prior to our Euro sojourn... In fact, we are both pretty upset by the treatment meted out to the Italian RPFers... running constantly in black overalls in intense heat and living in a woodenshed!!! Yes, you can't make this shit up... they were living in a 6x4 shed!!! So we did the unforgivable sin of befriending them (this initially involved nicking bananas from the Stables kitchen and leaving them as peace offerings in their shed!!!) If they weren't so funny and cool about there situation I think we would have called the police??!! It's funny how you rationalize the irrational!!!

So... let me get to the point which is, LRHs clothes kept hunky dory for his imminent re-arrival. Well due to our little upcoming trip we were taking all the working hours that were going... throw them at us, we'll gobble them up!!! The only real problem with this scenario is that I'm tired of a long summer fending off getting "on course" and generally wondering about the sanity of my environs, coupled with my warm cynical friend's anecdotes that quite rightly "rip the pish!!!"

So it's ten o clock at night and as the Manor project is drawing to a conclusion we find ourselves with the enviable task of putting LRHs clothes back in his wardrobes (yes there were 2!!) Now for anyone who doubts the validity of my meanderings his wardrobe room is top floor, right hand side - if you are looking from the lake!!!)

So it is late and we have a task at hand which we are duly and studiously going about... then I happen to turn round and see Pat with the Commodore's hat on doing a funky shimmy out the door (with pipe in mouth, did you know he keeps a pipe? well, he does!!!)... the only thing that is missing is The Theme From Shaft :afro: as he slinks down the corridor... in much hysterics!!! Cue a dressing up party with blubbards 48inch slacks causing much tripping up... potatoe sack race!!! His sweaters are so big and uncool we do unspeakable things to them... what were they thinking, I'll never know... I dread to think what an unspeakable moth ridden state they are in now... Scientology... you are too funny and for that I thank you profusely!!! xxxxx :D :xenu:

               GTA 5 viral site resumes assault on Scientology - reveal incoming?



Grand Theft Auto 5 might have skipped Take-Two Interactive's Q1 2013 financials, but Rockstar's clearly up to something. Spoof cult religion website The Epsilon Program has started posting and Tweeting for the first time in ages.

The object of the spoof is clearly the goodly Ron Hubbard's Church of Scientology. According to Epsilon, "sperm does not exist - it is a lie spread by biology teachers - along with everything else you have ever been told - FACT!"

Along with a mailing address for cash donations - we dare you to take advantage of it - the site carries testimonials from the faithful, all of whom live in Grand Theft Auto city. Here's Jonas Ackerman of San Andreas, GTA 5's setting. "Kifflom changed my life. I used to have a well paid job, a family and good prospects. Now, I've given that up to find real meaning in wearing light blue and proclaiming my real religion. Kifflom!'

Got a few minutes spare? Have a nose around. See if you can work out what they're cooking. Might want to check this massive round-up of Grand Theft Auto 5 details and rumours first.

GTA V Spoofs Scientology With the Hilarious “Epsilon Program”
Sam Gibbs -

If you needed any proof that GTA V is finally getting closer to an actual release, check out this awesome parody site for the Church of Scientology, which is probably the most left-field viral marketing campaign I’ve ever seen.    http://epsilonprogram.com/

The only real sign its anything other than a horrendously strange cult-like site are the testimonials from people in Liberty City and San Andreas. The “12 tenets of Kifflom” are particularly amusing, and somewhat frightening considering there’s something scarily similar actually operating in the real world. My favourite has to be: “5. Everyone is related to everyone else, except for people with red hair – FACT!”

I might just have to pop down to my local Epsilon centre during my lunch break to see whether I too can get in on this enlightenment. Now, come on Rockstar, give us GTA V already; we need another hit of your joy-riding pedestrian-squishing drug. [Epsilon Program via T3]

                                      Announcing the Church of the Homosexual
Posted: 08/28/2012

                                  The Huffington Post

So recently I was visiting my elderly mother, and as she often does, she asked me a question about some aspect of popular culture with which she is not familiar. I braced to once again explain Facebook to her, but this time it was something else. She wanted to know: "What is Scientology?"

I explained as best I could about how L. Ron Hubbard wrote bad science fiction and then created "Dianetics." I told her how it was all fairly culty and attracted a fair amount of celebrities -- particularly closeted ones who think they can be "cleared" of their sexual preference. My mother retained that dissatisfied look on her face, the one she has when I'm not adequately answering her question. "Yes, Mark, but why do they call it a Church?" That was easy enough. "Because Churches are tax-exempt, Mom."

Later on, this conversation came back to me when I was reading an angry blog post denouncing the ex-gay movement. I mused on Facebook that perhaps we should throw in the towel on this issue, declaring ourselves all former heterosexuals who successfully "prayed away the straight." A friend reacted with the suggestion that we'd probably get far more rights if we actually reframed our sexual preference as a religious choice. So I googled "Church of the Homosexual." For all the predictable results using those words, I was surprised to find out that no one seems to have actually tried to claim homosexuality a religion.

I mean, really, if Scientology can call itself a Church, why can't we? I don't know about you, but I could use some tax-exempt status when I bang the old headboard. And we could finally use protections afforded freedom of religion by the Constitution -- hey, if it's good enough for Fred Phelps, it's good enough for me.

I know this going to take a lot of paperwork, so I figure I might as well start by laying out some central tenets. This rough draft is mostly for the IRS, but you've got to start somewhere, right?

At the Church of the Homosexual:

 1   We worship a lesbian goddess named Brianna. She enjoys rescuing pit bulls and watching Rachel Maddow and is working on losing those last 20 pounds. (She wears it well!)

 2   We have one prayer: "Oh, my God, I'm going to come!"

 3   We believe in reincarnation, but only after a year of personal training at Golds and applying the most amazing moisturizer from this way-cute Brazilian dermatologist I met. You'll die.

 4   We believe in the literal word of the Bible -- Men's Vogue to you.

 5   The union of a man and a woman ("mixed marriage") is clearly intended for procreative purposes only, as opposite-sex relationships have a failure rate of over 50 percent.

 6   Oh, for Christ's sake, are you really defriending me over that? It was a joke.

 7 Joe  Manganiell  is so hot                                                                                                                                           8 We love 8. (Is that too obvious?)

 9   What do you mean, "Don't forget the lesbians"? I made Brianna Master of the Universe, didn't I? It's never enough with her.

 10  OK, we'll name the softball league after her dog-walking business. Happy?

 These ten commandments form the sacred core of our beliefs and should be enough to get us nonprofit status.

Now all I have to do is find a boyfriend.

Pray for me.

                            U.S. Braces for More Religious Violence as 'The Master' Hits Theaters

By BC Bass

SAN NARCISO, Calif. (Bennington Vale Evening Transcript) -- The organized effort and ferocity of the September 11 attacks against the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, caught the Obama administration by surprise. Well-armed extremists stormed the compound Tuesday killing two former Navy SEALS, an information management officer, and respected Ambassador Christopher Stevens. The violence arose during protests against the anti-Islamic film "Innocence of Muslims," which depicts the Prophet Muhammad in an insulting light. Several Libyan security guards were also slain in the hours-long assault. After trailers for "Innocence of Muslims" went viral throughout Islamic countries via YouTube, violent demonstrations occurred in Egypt and Yemen. The United States put all of its diplomatic missions abroad on high alert, bracing for the eruption of more fighting. However, as another religiously offensive film debuted Friday, security agencies began implementing similar precautions inside the country to protect citizens from potential rioting or military style attacks launched by well-equipped, well-funded Scientologist gunmen.

Officials say offended Muslims are just the tip of this iceberg. With Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" opening today -- offering a searing and unflattering look at the origins of Scientology -- authorities have beefed up peacekeeping forces around flea markets, swap meets, street festivals, hospitals, accident scenes, facilities for the mentally challenged, and other sites where Scientologists gather and are likely to become violently agitated.

Like Islam, the teachings of Scientology often maintain close ties with Christianity. But members of both religions claim they are victimized by Christians.

Although Islam rejects the belief that Jesus was God incarnate or God's son, the Quran describes him as a divine prophet appointed by God to guide the children of Israel.

Jesus also figures prominently in the dogma of Scientology. Scientologists believe he was an agent of an alien mind-control organization imported to Earth for its corruption -- a revelation the religion's founder, L. Ron Hubbard, imparted to his disciples in the 1950s.

Grant Ferrentine, who runs a Scientology mission in San Narciso County, Calif., called the attacks on the U.S. Consulate "inevitable."

"As a member of a religion that faces discrimination each day, I understand the importance of the First Amendment," Ferrentine said. "But hate speech is outside the law. Can you imagine how Christians would react if Muslims produced a movie showing Christ as a NASCAR-hating, child-molesting drug lord in an interracial marriage, who uses his money to fund gay solar farms? And his hobbies include puppy abortions and burning down Walmarts? The outrage and the ensuing unrest would make three centuries of the Crusades look like the bickering of drunks at a neighborhood block party."

Ferrentine conceded a level of hyperbole in his assessment, but ominously noted that this dire outcome "is what 'The Master' is provoking with its slanderous hate speech toward Scientology."

"I respect Christians and Muslims, even though their religions are filled with unbelievable magic, mystical creatures, and other silly fairy tales," Ferrentine continued. "But the devout will go to war over their core beliefs, no matter how far-fetched. What Paul Thomas Anderson's doing to us with his dumb movie is equally appalling -- more so, I think, because Scientology is real and makes sense."

Scientologists believe an alien named Xenu ruled a Galactic Confederacy 75 million years ago, known as "Teegeeack." Facing a coup for his inability to curb the overpopulation of the confederate planets, Xenu enlisted psychiatrists to gather billions of citizens together under the ruse of income tax inspections, at which point he seized control of their souls using a mix of alcohol and glycol. The billions of kidnapped beings were loaded onto a spaceship about the size and shape of an old Douglas DC-8, then transported to Earth. Depositing them at the feet of volcanoes across the planet, the DC-8 dropped nuclear bombs into the craters and killed all the beings. Their souls, known as thetans, were dispersed in the explosion. Xenu captured them using a big magnet, implanted false information into them, and then let them possess humans for some reason.

Scientology clears thetans using rational, scientific processes to free humans from alien bondage, Ferrentine explained.

"Nothing fantastic, no miracles, no anthropomorphic men in the sky with white beards and omniscience," he added. "I don't understand why anyone would want to attack our religion, especially because Scientology is deeply entrenched in the halls of power. We've infiltrated Hollywood. We're funding lobbyists, and we've got people inside the government. I'm talking IRS and Defense. If Anderson's cinematic blasphemy about L. Ron Hubbard goes into wide release, we could be looking at an extinction level event -- unless the U.S. government does the right thing and drops this film into Mount St. Helens."

Sensing the impending and inescapable certainty of the Scientology attacks, as he had with the Islamic aggression in the Middle East, Mitt Romney again issued a preemptive denunciation of President Obama for likely not doing enough to prevent the loss of American lives (the body count to be determined after the actual violence begins) and for probably apologizing to Scientologists for America's role in creating "The Master."

                              Join “The Church” and Point and Laugh at Scientology
Gary Cutlack -

An independent game developer is about to incur the holy wrath of Scientologists, by planning a satirical game that superbly mocks the concept of the religion.

The amazing promotional video explains the background behind the modern religion, with Scientology’s concept of levelling up ideal for transition into a bonkers video game. Earning in-game money let you pay for audits, a key part of the Scientology world, eventually upgrading your character to thetan level with all the special powers that brings.

It’s pretty strong on the Scientology satire, with the promotional video claiming missions will include trying to stop same-sex marriages, the recruitment of children and celebrities, plus there’s the chance to progress quicker by simply paying more money. Harsh.

If that sounds mad enough to be part of, the maker is asking for funding over at Indiegogo. It’s only taken in a couple of hundred quid so far, though. Probably because it looks more like a joke than a product. [Indiegogo via CVG]

                                                     A Scientology Sunday
Posted: 13/03/2013

My mother's party piece is often to tell the story of the Scientologist. A women, who my parents bought our family home from when we moved to Scotland, is the only character so it doesn't take long. Being six weeks old I don't remember the sauna, but sauna there was my mother assures my siblings and me (and anyone else who will listen).

Apparently the previous owner had installed a sauna and a shower into the dining room for the cleansing of her fellow Scientologists before their meetings. Her husband sadly died, and having no minister to preside over the funeral arrangements she "dropped it [Scientology] like a hot stone", says my mother, followed by a dramatic pause. The story goes that my mother received hundreds of letters in the following years but had been sworn not to return to sender in case they should find out she had moved and come in search of her at her new address.

Knowing my mother's affinity with hyperbole I thought perhaps the dramatic pauses and knowing looks were a little over the top. Wasn't this a religion based firmly in the realms of "it's nice to be nice"? It couldn't be all that bad. Why then did Katie Holms have to reignite my interest by very publicly leaving the Church of Scientology? I was curious again.

So I did what any sane person would do. I went to their church in central London to partake in one of their advertised, free personality tests. An imposing and beautiful building which could easily have been a very expensive hotel in its desirable location on the river at Blackfriars. Inside a lone receptionist in a vast entrance hall made of marble, pillars, coat of arms and shiny brass greeted me, her slightly mechanic smile wasn't the most reassuring, but then again you get awkward people in every walk of life. Perhaps Scientology could help me to be less judgemental. This was nice I thought and after divulging an uncomfortable amount of personal contact details to the receptionist another stiffly smiling girl came along to show me up to the Information Centre.

I had hoped it would be a relatively painless experience, a few questions and I would have "an accurate, reliable assessment" of my "strengths and weaknesses" according to their website. What I didn't know was that I would be herded into a very big room, full of very big television screens to be lectured by an array of badly acted videos with special effects worthy of a primary school Power Point presentation all accompanied by a booming, divine sounding voiceover. There were dozens of different film clips showing how beneficial the religion is, to both subscribers and those who they help through their efforts to better themselves, but I was left with more questions than when I had arrived. The one thing I did learn, through pestering my patient hostess, was that Scientologists can seemingly believe in any God they choose, the religion can be practiced alongside any other faith. Confusing.

After watching approximately six different televisions with varying examples of how good Scientology and Scientologists are, complete with patronizing imagery of white people educating black people in missionary style assistance, it was time for the big test.

Seated at exam-style desks with partitions between them I was handed the grandly titled Oxford Capacity Analysis Test- I had my reservations that this in fact had no correlation with Oxford- the university or the town. I was reminded to answer the questions relatively to how I was currently feeling and there were three options, yes, no and maybe/sometimes.

With 200 questions ranging from mundane to bizarre the test didn't seem particularly insightful. They were things such as "Do you browse through railway timetables, directories or dictionaries just for pleasure?" No. "Would you use corporal punishment on a child aged ten if it refused to obey you?" Obviously not, I'm not unstable. "Do children irritate you?" I was a nanny so, naturally, sometimes. And "do you often ponder over your own inferiority?" No. All reasonable answers I thought, smugly considering myself emotionally and morally stable.

The second girl I had met, who according to the Scientology website must have been an "expert evaluator" took my test away and marked it, luckily there were more unintentionally comical videos to watch in the meantime. Around fifteen minutes later she brought back a jagged chart. My personality flaws apparently. She reminded me that this was not her opinion of me, but my own opinion of myself as it was purely based on my own answers. I sat quietly as she explained to me that I was in need of "urgent attention" according to the chart.

So what was the verdict? I was extremely nervous, irresponsible, critical and depressed with very few redeeming elements. On each of these points she tried to tease out past traumatic cases which could have caused these flaws. I was confused, I consider myself confident, generally happy and quite responsible- having been living independently since I was 18. Perhaps I should have answered yes to the corporal punishment of children after all. Following her analysis there were uncomfortably long silences while I battled for a suitable answer and she maintained intense eye contact and nodded understandingly at my attempts to fill the quiet. After too long of this beating about the bush she insisted that what I needed to answer much of my personality discrepancies was a £15 DVD which would provide unknown and unexplained "tools" to combat my inner demons. After politely declining, a few times, I made my excuses and left.

I have my suspicions that no matter what your answers you would have multiple areas in your personality which were in need of "urgent attention". I can see how if you were feeling slightly down or vulnerable it would be very easy to accept the criticisms made of yourself and want to accept the help they seem to be offering.

There are numerous references which refute the authority of the test at deciphering anything at all about ones personality. It is also often said that members of the Church of Scientology are siphoned of alarming amounts of money, which leaders describe as "donations", and probably goes someway towards explaining the real estate I was faced with.

Being sceptical about their motives and worried about there power to saturate the mind I think I'll leave my investigation of the Church of Scientology at the initial stages and get back to my irresponsible ways.

                      Mel Brooks Roast: “He Never Let His Love of Scientology Affect His Work”

The American Film Institute was supposed to honor Mel Brooks last night in Hollywood. Well, they did, with a star studded audience and players on stage at the Dolby Theatre. But then Mel, who’s 86 and hasn’t lost a step, roasted them right back. It was sheer genius. About three hours of toasts, roasts, clips and tributes went by, all with Brooks quietly watching.

The live presenters ranged from his oldest and best friend Carl Reiner to Martin Short (in a hilarious musical number), Billy Crystal, Robert DeNiro, Amy Poehler, Cloris Leachman, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, David Lynch, Morgan Freeman, Larry David, Cary Elwes, Sarah Silverman and finally Martin Scorsese, who presented him with the AFI Lifetime Achievement Award.


Some of it will make it to TV, some will not. Skillful editing will be applied to this very funny night of inside jokes that showed Brooks’s career chronologically. The only piece missing was any reference to “Get Smart,” as Buck Henry was unable to attend.
But the Dolby, turned into a dinner theater, was packed with celebs who didn’t speak including Brooks’s beloved former ingenue Teri Garr, as well as Dustin Hoffman, Lesley Ann Warren, directors Alexander Payne and Jay Roach, Richard Benjamin and Paula Prentiss, Richard and Lauren Shuler Donner, Paul Mazursky, Hawk Koch, Jon Avnet, Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher, “Mad Men” creator Matt Weiner, Richard Lewis, Steven Weber, Mike Medavoy, Disney chief Alan Horn, “Arrested Development” creator Mitch Hurwitz, and Netflix’s Ted Sarandos.
Outgoing Sony chief Sir Howard Stringer introduced the evening with his usual panache.


On tape, the AFI rounded up Gene Wilder, Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Woody Allen, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Whoopi Goldberg, Jerry Seinfeld, and Clint Eastwood to explain how Brooks had perverted and parodied various genres to make his classic films.
Short cracked wise about Brooks in his opening number: “He never let his love of Scientology affect his work.” Yes, it brought the house down.
Kimmel pretended he was eulogizing, not celebrating, Brooks. The “Blazing Saddles” director quipped later: “Just for that, I’m going on Conan. I’m not dead or dying!”....

                                    Russell Howard laughs off Scientology benefit gig reports

Russell Howard has denied being booked to perform a benefit gig for the Church of Scientology.

A Facebook page had been set up claiming that the comedian would be performing a special show at Scientology venue Saint Hill Manor in East Grinstead over the Valentine's Day weekend in 2014.

"We are holding a very special Ideal Org fund-raising event in February here in East Grinstead: the hilarious Russell Howard will be doing a private gig!" the post read.

Tickets were said to be £75 for standing, £175 for the second and third rows, £500 to include a signed book and £1,000 to meet the comedian.

"Woke up this morning to find I'm apparently doing a benefit for Scientology!?" Howard responded on Twitter.

"Of course it's not true. I'm not a Scientologist; I'm a Jedi."

                                Overreaction to 'South Park''s Muhammad

Written by: Nathan Warner on April 26, 2010.
Show’s bold approach to social commentary stirs controversyComedy Central’s infamous “South Park” is no stranger to controversy.

The show, a crude though humorous cartoon featuring four fourth-graders in a fictional Colorado town, has become known for its scathing social commentary.

Over the years, the creators — Matt Stone and Trey Parker — have garnered publicity for the show’s offensive content, including foul language, toilet humor and general handling of socially taboo subjects.

It has faced the wrath of government and school officials as well as parents for its alleged bad influence on young children.

Despite its vulgarity, the show has received acclaim for many of its episodes, which often criticize public attitudes. Several episodes have addressed racism and discrimination.

Long-running themes include the character Cartman’s blatant anti-Semitism and discrimination against red-haired “gingers.” In one episode, Cartman becomes a far-right quasi-fascist, and succeeds in using fear mongering to ostracize the gingers.

“South Park” has also received a host of attention for its offensive satire of public figures and sensitive issues. Especially notable is its treatment of religion.

One episode had a Mormon family move to town and proceeded to disparagingly describe the creators’ interpretation of beginnings and beliefs of the Latter-Day Saints faith.

Jesus has also been a recurring character, with the show generally portraying him as a modern, cursing superhero.

Several episodes have mocked Scientology, with one well-known episode lampooning Tom Cruise as well as the beginnings, beliefs and practices of the Church of Scientology.

This episode is famous for allegedly leading to the resignation of Isaac Hayes, the voice of the recurring supporting character Chef. Hayes is a Scientologist and said that Stone and Parker had “crossed the line between satire and intolerance.”

Last week’s episode was the show’s 200th episode and included allusions to a wide range of past episodes and themes. In the episode, Tom Cruise threatens to sue South Park (for various unimportant offenses) unless the town delivers the Islamic prophet Muhammad to him.

The show was meant to satirize the attitudes of Muslims toward physical depictions of Muhammad.

In their view, these depictions are insulting and blasphemous. In the episode, South Park citizens agree to turn over Muhammad to Cruise, but fear Muslim terrorism will target the town if his face is shown.

To alleviate these concerns, a compromise is reached: Muhammad is given to Cruise, but is delivered dressed in a bear suit inside the back of a delivery truck.

It appears Parker and Stone achieved their intended objective. As anticipated, their treatment of Muhammad has caused a great deal of consternation among Muslims.

Media attention has exacerbated the controversy, drawing attention to an article posted on an extremist Muslim website which aimed to “warn” Stone and Parker of the consequences and “explain the severity” of their portrayal.

The website drew a direct comparison of the plight of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, who was murdered in 2004 by Muslims offended by his documentary on violence against women in Islam. The message said that Stone and Parker will “probably end up like Theo van Gogh” as a result of the show.

It is disheartening to hear that, in response to these “warnings,” Comedy Central has capitulated: In this week’s follow-up episode (last week’s was the first of a two-part show), the network bleeped all mention of Muhammad’s name in addition to interposing a censor on images of the character.

I won’t reiterate all the arguments for free speech — those are already widespread, especially due to the controversy created by the van Gogh incident, and the familiar case of riots and other incidents inspired by caricatures of Muhammad in a Dutch newspaper’s political cartoons.

Moreover, these arguments are widely accepted in the U.S. and throughout Western Europe — free speech is sacrosanct, though there are numerous and significant exceptions, depending on the venue and cultural standards.

My mention of “South Park” and these incidents is instead meant to highlight the show itself.

This might come across as a shameless plug for a crude cartoon, but that is entirely the point: It is often dismissed (usually by those who haven’t seen it) as only a venue for stupid and vulgar entertainment, rather than recognized for the bold, creative approach it takes to social commentary.

My admiration is in good company. “South Park” has received a series of awards, including a 2006 Peabody Award for “undeniably fearless lampooning of all that is self-important and hypocritical in American life” and a handful of Emmy Awards.

This is not to say that “South Park” is for everyone.

It is definitely not appropriate for small children or for those uncomfortable with foul language or toilet talk. Its critiques of religion may at times be over-the-top — as a religious man myself, I admit I have at times cringed at the show’s treatment of religion and religious figures.

As the creators note, though, they are “equal opportunity offenders:” No religion is spared from their devastating wit.

The irony of this particular controversy is that it was intended to satirize the very conditions that caused the controversy.

It’s like a self-repeating loop, or one of those pictures within a picture: some Muslims were offended by being made fun of for being offended at being made fun of.

Whether Muslims should or should not be offended is a separate issue.

I (and probably most Americans) would argue that many of those who have responded to the episode are unnecessarily thin-skinned and that violence is a definite over-reaction.

Then again, perhaps “South Park” really did cross the line and should attempt be more sensitive or respectful.

Perhaps there’s enough sarcasm and cynicism in the world already and even more just serves to lower our trust in society.

Perhaps the difference is just a matter of cultural relativity and personal taste. In my view, even when offending, Stone and Parker at least make you think about why you are offended.

My personal taste is that “South Park” is a creative and provocative commentary on this crazy world and is definitely worth watching.

                                              Finding God — Many Gods, Actually — in Rock ‘n’ Roll

By Jason Diamond on May 2, 2014
I’ve been sitting here all morning trying to describe what I hear when I listen to the L. Ron Hubbard-penned song, “Just a Kid,” that Edgar Winter (he of the great ’70s cruise anthem “Free Ride” and a card-carrying Scientologist) put to music. My initial reaction was to hate it based on the sheer amount of creepiness I associate with the Church of Scientology, thanks in large part to reading Lawrence Wright’s Going Clear — even having the song in my headphones seems like it could render me susceptible to brainwashing. But for the sake of journalism, I kept listening over and over, trying to pull out what might be great about the song, hoping that it wasn’t a hidden message that was seeping into my mind, convincing me to leave Brooklyn so I can scrub the decks of the Scientology cruise ship.

Up until this morning, I’d never heard any of Hubbard’s music. That all changed when I read Nathan Rabin’s piece at Slate. Rabin tells us that the songs on the album Mission Earth “are listenable, which is more than can be said of any of the other albums Hubbard is credited as having written.”...

                              Catholic Church Commemorates Scientology for Beating Their Scam Record

The bald-ass monkey pope from the Catholic Church in some schmancy European country commemorated the Church of Scientology this week for utterly destroying their record set since their foundation back when the bearded old man went up in the sky.
It is estimated that since the Church of Scientology is currently the popular religion, millions of little boys are at risk of getting their assholes pounded like a bunch of monkeys at the local zoo.
We sat down one-to-one with The Church of Scientology’s top and most notable member, Tom Cruise, and asked him questions regarding the church’s controversial steps to add a new member into its system.

Unfortunately, the talk did not go as planned. It wasn’t five minutes in, when Tom stood up and hollered at our monkey journalists screaming “I did not have gay buttsex with John Travolta” and ten minutes later, “I do not, in any way, want to raise my long skinny legs up in the air (like I just don’t care) and let Travolta lick my Scientology butthole.” Our monkey journalists agreed with him all the way.
The monkey Pope, father of our journalists and former king of the scammers in penis enlargements advertisements on porn websites gave his final speech to his people chimps stating that “the Church of Scientology is the only qualified recipient able to buy the catholic religion.”
The religion was purchased the following day, the day of the Pope’s final speech, for a $20 Amazon gift card. The American people viewed it as the perfect price for the transaction.

The Pope was later found dead inside an abandoned motel with a pink ball gagged to his mouth and his neck wrapped around with a black, leather belt. A little boy was found lying next to him. Sadly, no one gave a fuck.

                                    JESSE PRINCE AND THE L RON HUBBARD PERFUME CAPER

    I don't know if everyone has read the story about L Ron Hubbard and his terrible aversion to the smell of roses. I thought it was a hilarious story told by Jesse Prince and so I would like to bump it for any new comers to read.TALES FROM THE CULT III.

    When my wife and I were in the Sea Org, the CMO came around to everyone's room searching for any product that had sent in it and confiscated them. This could be perfume, cologne, a bar of bath soap, shampoo, deodorant, or anything that smelled nice. Below is the story.

    30 Aug 2000
    "Jesse Prince" <jesseprince@lisatrust.net>

    Hard to imagine, but not every tale from the cult involves criminal activity. Sometimes it's just plain old bizarre, like this one here.
    You may have noticed (especially pubic Scientologist) that the staff of Sea Org organizations have very strong opinions about how one smells. In particular, Sea Org members can't stand the smell of scented products. How odd it is that ALL Sea Org members reject the smell of perfume or cologne and act like you have committed a crime if a person should indulge in such.

    Odd behavior indeed! All Sea Org members are trained to reject "scents" because Hubbard ordered it so. In the same matter in which he ordered Sea Org members are forbidden to own a television This goes a long way to explain why Sea Org members seem so out of touch with just about any and everything, fashion and trends for sure. It's all to clear to free thinking people why the control of information is important if you want to create a "loyal" goon squad and keep them in the dark. Even someone as stupid and destructive as Adolph Hitler knew that one!
    Anyway, there is a reason and an exact story of why Sea Org members' are not allowed the simple pleasure of being able to experience smells or perfume or scented products, and I'll tell it to you now.

    The year was 1984. Hubbard was on an up swing of one of his manic depressive mood swings. Hubbard started out writing something about the use of computers on the whole track ( whole track = existence and civilizations that pre date any earthly recorded time period) and somehow got into a rant about tar-coal perfume. Hubbard discovered that everything he touched had the scent of rose perfume, which was derived from tar-coal. Hubbard said the rose scent permeated all new clothes as the sizing used on new clothes was the same tar coal rose perfume that greatly irritated his nose and skin. Being highly sensitive because of his OTness, Hubbard quickly lost patience for anything that smelled of rose perfume. I guess you could spend a day reading all of the "advices" Hubbard came up with concerning rose perfume. Like the BT (body thetan) story, Hubbard discovered EVERTHING smelled like rose perfume! All of his clothes smelt like it, every piece of paper sent to him from Int Management and RTC smelt like it. The poor man was plagued by cheap rose perfume and when Hubbard was miserable everyone around or connected to him shared the misery.

    Hubbard was an avid smoker of cigarettes, Kool non filter to be exact and smoked no less than three packs a day. Anyone who smokes or has smoked knows the sense of smell is greatly affected by the fact of smoking.
    Missions and projects were fired out to find or create a line of soap products that were scentless. Chemist were hired, and a new line of soap products were created. At great expense, a new line of shampoo and conditioner, laundry soap, body lotion, hand soap, industrial cleaning soap....you name it. All the while, the hysteria created by Hubbard for the dreaded rose perfume got worse and worse.

    Hubbard was close by Golden Era Productions out in Hemet and had a team of 6 people that did nothing but clean a house he lived in a few times a week. This team was also responsible for doing his laundry. Hubbard and his messengers developed new tech for handling his laundry. The procedure was to take a brand new shirt or other new article of clothing and wash it is six separate tubs of water by hand three times. That's 18 separate wash cycles! To rinse, the article was rinsed in six different tubs of clear water three times. The end product was a new shirt that was now thread bare and falling apart. Not to be stopped, there was a special sewer posted that would sew up the ruined shirt.The shirt would be dried outside on a clothes line, put in a plastic bag and sent on to Hubbard.

    Hubbard had a fit again as he said he could still smell the rose perfume. He figured the smell was coming from the plastic bags his thread bare clothes were being sent to him in. Lower conditions were assigned to everyone connected with the project as poor little Hubbard had no clothes to wear!
    During this same time period, Hubbard had ordered Scientology celebs to create a music score for his books, the Mission Earth series. I'm sure some here have had the unfortunate experience of hearing this load of crap. Very similar to the Battlefield Earth movie, crap. Anyway, it was time to mix the album down and the same producer/engineer who mixed Michel Jackson's Thriller album was employed at great expense to try and do something with the terminally ill music score project.

    The name of this person is Bruce Swadean (sp?). Bruce came with his wife as I guess he was afraid to be alone in Scientology's top management facilities. After two days in the studio, a staff member was told to handle Bruce's wife because she was stinking up Hubbard's studio with her nasty perfume. Of course Davey is the one who ordered this to be done. A girl named Mary, got the task and she pulled Bruce's wife aside while Bruce was in the studio trying to raise the unborn dead and told her she would have to handle herself as she was stinking up Hubbard's nice music studio with her smelly perfume. To say the least, the woman was horrified by the shear rudeness of what had just happened and ran into the studio and told her husband about it.
    Without missing a beat, Bruce stood up and told Rick Cruzen, Charlie Rush, Peter Slesh (sp?) just how wacky he really thought they all were and left the building never to be seen or heard from again. No matter how much Davey had people beg Bruce, he would not come back to the Golden Era Production concentration camp.

    Lower conditions for all concerned again! See how the misery is spread!
    Now every piece of paper sent to Hubbard from Int Management and RTC had the dreaded rose perfume smell and lower conditions were flying around in CMO Int. Now the only way to send something to Hubbard was through Marc Yeager who was the Commanding Officer of CMO Int until he messed it up too. Hubbard decided Marc Yeager was full of overts as his perception had to be way down if he was not able to smell the rose perfume! Everyone thought Marc had a good nose because between Davey, Marc and me, Marc was the only one who did not smoke cigarettes, wrong again. Marc is now writing up his overts and withholds and doing conditions for sending up the dreaded rose perfume smell to Hubbard.

    This horrified the hell out of me because I knew my ticket was next. Sure enough Davey and Vickie tell me it's my turn to go to the ovens and neither one had any advice as to what I should do. Both had already been smelling everything that was sent up to Hubbard and they missed it too. Davey smoked at least 2 packs of Camel non filter cigarettes and I smoked about a pack and a half. What was I suppose to smell?

    The question going through my mind was what had I done to get put in this horrible position? How much pain and humiliation would I have to suffer before it was over for me and just how over for me would it be? Every bit of perfume had been taken from all the staff and destroyed. Half of the newly created line of scentless products were found to be defective and further test were being done to find the rest defective. I remember sitting in my office with boxes of dispatches and laundry ready to be sent to Hubbard, all I had to do was give it the old smell test and all would be fine. When you are alone there is no one to pretend for. I opened the boxes, looked inside and put the lids back on, no reason to smell. I sat there for what I thought would seem a reasonable amount of time for a person to smell this crap. During this interlude, I was wondering if I had recently done anything that would make Hubbard like me and thus spare me. A few things came to mind (and I'll tell these later) but to tell the truth, I didn't feel very confident for keeping my head.

    Anyway the stuff went up and came back. Hubbard was pleased and said the smell was greatly reduced, though not fully handled. Hubbard discovered the dreaded rose smell was coming from the ink in the pens people had used to sign off that they had checked for smells and found none! I can't tell you how relieved we all were, me especially. After a few weeks Hubbard forgot about the dreaded rose perfume smell and found other things to rant about.
    Hubbard had an amazing ability to write down EVERYTHING and soon a new commandment was issued about smells. Hubbard even tied it in with the psychs evil plan to kill us all. This is why and how the whole group of Sea Org and even most Scientology public can't/won't wear scented products.
    All I can say is thank God Hubbard found out about visteril before he pasted on. Life for the poor Sea Org members and public could have been a lot worst.

                                  Re: Scientology asks: Did we do something wrong? Has there been an injustice?

My son he was incomplete on the only course he started more than 25 years ago when he was 6 years old !

It was on CC letterhead stationary & envelope

" Dear XXXX,

Have the calls and letters reduced to an acceptable amount as you requested ?

Did we do something wrong ? What are you so upset about ? Tell me about it.

What did you do here because someone else wanted you to do it ?

What did you do here that you wanted to do and what did you get out of it ?

Sincerely,

(signed ) Randy

Randy Madnick "


Oh, 6 years old - routed off because his reading skills weren't up to check sheet speed. Things like KSW was, gee, sort of tough for the kid to word clear.

Well, he did learn to use the dictionary & he enjoyed playing with clay & building stuff with the 'demo kits'.

That was a quarter of a century ago - I had no idea those people had recently gotten so desperate.

But, if I decide to answer that letter for him even they will cringe reading it.

                                                     HG Wells interviews L. Ron Hubbard

    Part 1: http://hwcdn.libsyn.com/p/6/5/a/65ad82fb50363c6e/Chapter_45_-_L._Ron_Hubbard_Part_1.mp3?c_id=8764237&expiration=1456085348&hwt=0a9af82c1d809f82284e0c9ac5e5a097

    Part 2: http://hwcdn.libsyn.com/p/0/5/0/050518c857328c49/Chapter_45_-_L._Ron_Hubbard_Part_2.m4a?c_id=9310932&expiration=1456086568&hwt=ab0fb67550f09d06f38818ef5b15d95b


    The podcast is both incredibly smart and funny, and a chance to direct attention to that organization's work. Paul F. Tompkins hosts the podcast as H.G. Wells, and each episode, he has on another dead author to have a conversation about their career and their lives. He's had great guests on, and inspired combinations of author and actor, like Ron Funches showing up as Iceberg Slim or Lennon Parham as Flannery O'Connor or Kristen Schaal as Tennessee Williams. Matt Gourley and Andy Daly have both been repeat performers, and if you know about Gourley's love of James Bond, it is particularly apt that he played Ian Fleming.

    But the two-parter that I played this weekend while driving around LA may be the show's finest effort so far. Andy Daly plays L. Ron Hubbard, and he did his homework. It is an impeccably researched performance, and yet it is never anything less than screamingly funny. He is committed to the bullshit in the exact same way the real Hubbard was committed to the bullshit, and it's glorious.

    I don't want to quote it or offer up bits out of context. It's not that kind of comedy. Instead, it's very smart stuff, and I love the way Tompkins is aware of the weirdness of the concept of one dead author interviewing another dead author with both of them fully aware of not only their own demise, but everything that's happened in culture since then. They both play it perfectly, though, and it wasn't supposed to be a two-parter. It's just that they reached the end of the first segment and it was clear that Daly wasn't even slightly out of steam yet.

                                       "I'm going to bring Shelly Miscavige with me in the trunk of my car," Kathy Griffin said.

Tampa Bay Times: Kathy Griffin will needle Trump, Scientologists in Clearwater
http://www.tampabay.com/things-to-do/events/kathy-griffin-will-needle-trump-scientologists-in-clearwater/2271033

* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

I had to stop her mid-sentence to ask why she loves Clearwater so much.

She said the area's "Sci-Ties," what she calls members of the Church of Scientology, are a plus. She poked fun at the church's celebrity followers like John Travolta and Kirstie Alley. She pointed to the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige, who hasn't made a public appearances since 2007.

"I'm going to bring Shelly Miscavige with me in the trunk of my car," she said.

With two Emmys, a Grammy and a record-setting number of TV specials under her belt, 55-year-old Griffin has superhuman focus. This talk was a sales call for her "Like a Boss" tour, making four stops in Florida in April.

Have the Scientologists really shown up in her past seven Clearwater visits?

"Scientologists have never really done anything except wait for me outside," Griffin said, adding that she wished them luck on their trip to Pluto. "But I think Sci-Ties secretly show up. Kirstie Alley and the rest, they like a good laugh as much as anybody.

"I would not be surprised to find John Travolta disguised in a wig in the audience, and I do not mean the wig he's wearing to play Robert Shapiro in the most bizarre performance I've ever seen."

                                           Kathy Griffin says, "Xenu cannot stand me. I’m a PTS. I’m sure you saw “Going Clear?""

It is very clear (pun always intended) that Kathy knows what she is talking about. Notice, for example, the reference to "every category."

Star Gazette: Chatty Kathy: Comedian ready to spill secrets in Elmira

http://www.stargazette.com/story/entertainment/2016/04/12/chatty-kathy-comedian-ready-spill-secrets-elmira/82956170/

* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

GRIFFIN: Just next week, I’m going to be in Daytona Beach, Florida; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Fort Myers, Florida; Clearwater, Florida, for four days in a row — and keep in mind that Clearwater is the hub of Scientology. I will not be holding back on Scientology, nor will I be holding back on John Travolta’s performance in “[American Crime Story:] The People vs. O.J. [Simpson],” where he’s playing a version of Robert Shapiro that’s a combination of Snooki and Michael Douglas in [the Liberace biopic] “Behind the Candelabra.” I find it to be very bizarre.

So I will be standing onstage in Clearwater, the hub of Scientology, and I’m not going to hold back just because John Travolta might be in the back row with yet another wig, ready to heckle me.

Q: Well, I hope you make it out of Clearwater alive.

GRIFFIN: Yup, fingers crossed! I’ve actually played this venue six times, and every time I’m hoping they don’t beam me up to Pluto or wherever they live.

Q: You and Xenu can have a chat!

GRIFFIN: Xenu cannot stand me. I’m a PTS [potential trouble source]. I’m sure you saw “Going Clear”?

Q: Oh yes.

GRIFFIN: All the categories. I’m sure they’d love to dress up like squirrels and come to my house, and I would do nothing but Periscope it — so they know there’s no point anymore. I think the “Sci-Ties” have given up on me, frankly.

Q: If you’re off their radar, that might be for the best.

GRIFFIN: Yes! I’d also like to find Shelly Miscavige [wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige] and save her!

Q: There’s your next reality show idea, Kathy — “Finding Shelly Miscavige”!

GRIFFIN: I bet she’s somewhere in a room, like in that film “The Room,” and then I could be the hero: “Shelly, I’m throwing down a rope!”
