Tom, I don't care if you think you're king of the universe and you can make wine from sawdust, but I liked watching your movies better when your private life and thoughts were private. Now you just seem like a lunatic and I'd just rather not see your movies.

T.M.S.:

It's not free. Guess where the money for that sermon and a sandwich come from.

Heres a hint: Churches don't pay taxes.


Yeah, but the outlay of money that most people put into the church is nowhere near the outlay of money a typical person will put into Scientology.

DubyaHater: And this is weirder than getting on your knees, putting your hands together and asking "God" to influence your life in some positive way? Not that I'm judging. However you want to waste your time and money is fine with me.


Says the genius on Fark.

If you want to learn about Scientology from the source, the initial contact is free. However, you must then buy books, courses, and e-meters. You must give more & more money to get "better". They will have a booth at an event to give you a personality test to see how many bad alien thetans are in your body. That's all that is free.

If you go to any other religion in the world and ask, they'll happily tell you all about their beliefs. They may give you a book, pamphlets or newsletter. You will be invited to attend a service and see for yourself. Many of them maintain shelters for people, run food banks, or give clothing to those in need. Others have programs to help people, from at-risk kids to senior aides. They're often among the first to volunteer in an emergency.

And you know what? All of that is free.

The really sad thing is that Scientology would be hilarious... if they weren't so ruthless and dangerous. I mean, Tom Cruise jumping on that couch is funny, but seriously, these people have almost certainly committed murder and gotten away with it. To say nothing of the thousands of lives they've ruined through legal/financial means or by simply absorbing people's entire existence into their cult apparatus. They even infiltrated the US government for god's sake.

Sounds like Cruise and his followers are gullible schmucks; and then Sunday you find yourself downing crackers and wine as a grown man who's chosen to live his remaining days as if he were a eunuch (or, so he'd have you believe) tells you that they'll soon turn into the blood and guts of a Jew who died some 3,000 years ago.

There alot of secular folks who don't get it about main stream religion versus a cult.

They want to equate christianity, hinduism,buddism,
(wait the last 2 are cool cause they're not western ;)
with cultists. It's an intelectually lazy position, and amoral to boot.

Cults target those that
are insecure
Weak willed
lack meaning of existence.
limited intelligence (not alot of genius cultists unless your talking about its high leaders)

Cults Convert the above people by:

Isolating them from family, friends.
keeping them financially liable or dependent
brainwashing them (their view, their truth)
threatening people if they leave.


A main stream religion will offer the following.

Meaning of your existance
the ultimate fate of our world
morals to live by

Now I know atheists will say that prophet or religious figure are bogus, Fine
but the intent of the mainstream religion is not usually a negative or destructive
therefore myself I see no harm in it.

Some people say that "my friend's sex life, or orientation was regulated/rejected by their
mainstream religion and it messed them up"

My answer is: weren't they free to leave? , If you left did the leave you alone? were you threatened
with death for leaving.?

If One of these is answers is "NO" true then you were in a religion that was acting like a cult.

To those that complain about Religious Institution being tax-free. There are 2 reasons
for that. One, prevent Tax discrimination Btwn Religions, Two, most religions help keep society harmonius and are therefore a civic good.

P.S. Moral Relativist are wrong because they fail to judge OUTCOMES of moral descisions.
To judge a religion you must balance, how a religion behaves in public arena versus what it espouses in its sacred texts.

The bar bet thing has been discussed repeatedly, but other than hearsay, there is very little solid evidence for it. What is indisputable, however, is that Hubbard's motivation for starting the cult of Scientology was entirely financial. All he wanted to do with it was make a buck, and there are people out there destroying innocent lives to make money for a dead man.

Maybe that's what makes him a damn fine actor. He is probably dripping with confidence. Everyone tells him, and he believes it, that he is a living god with the power to cloud men's minds. No wonder he can commit to roles and put himself on top of the tallest building in the Middle East for Mission Impossible. He probably believes he can fly.

Batshiat crazy, but amazing committal to roles.

What edition is this? 3.0, I would hope. You don't often see dwarves with CON stats that low, since they get a racial bonus.

As far as I can tell, Operating Thetan is a pretty lousy class anyway. It looks like it has d6 hit dice, so that's even worse. If this is 3.5, that's a terrible character, since all 3.5 psionics classes use INT as their primary stat, since the 3.0 system was broken. With an INT of 9, I think that means all seven levels are wasted.

He should have been a sorcerer or bard or maybe a rogue with Weapon Finesse (though a skillmonkey with an INT penalty?).

If they want everyone to be CLEAR, why does it cost over $180,000 to reach that level?
PT Barnum had a Thetan Prophecy when he said "There is a SUCKER born every minute!"

Someone made a LOT of money off of him buying his way up the scientology ladder, not to mention that he was used in the same way a hunter uses a duck decoy to recruit more.people.

Given these newly revealed telekinetic powers, why then did he not have Oprah's yellow couch jump up and down on him?
It would have made such an impact on the small screen.

Would really love to see him play Elmer Fudd in his next movie.

Better yet, let him play Kareem Abdul Jabar in a new Lakers Film.

I can move things with my mind. I see something that needs to be moved, and I think to myself, "that thing needs to be moved." Then, as if by magic, my arm reaches out and my hand grabs the thing that needs to be moved. Then, I often use my mind to figure out where to put this farking thing I picked up.

Sometimes, my mind will step in and throw he thing I picked up at a Scientologist, and now, my mind has made someone bleed!

Then, my mind makes me run in the hopes of evading the police who are coming to charge me with assault.


/By the way, the best line I ever heard was between a drunk man and a woman at a bar one night years ago:
He: "I'm telekinetic. I can move things with my mind."
Her: "So what? I can get out of speeding tickets with my tits."

I still crack up at that.
