Felgraf: Haliburton Cummings: if only there were some good $cientologi$ts with guns to go up against the bad $cientologi$ts with guns....

man, just think...start your own power cult with a bunch of made up rules, get tax free status and freeload off the world while killing / raping and ruining people...

it's like a cross between the catholic church and most world governments...

i need a power job where i can "contribute" to $ociety" like this...

Strangely, there IS a splinter movement of Scientologists, if I remember right, who have broken away from the main church, oppose the corrupt social structure, but still cling to the beliefs. I cannot for the LIFE of me remember what they were called.
/It is also a very, VERRRYYYYYYYY tiny splinter movement.
//And I could be misremembering.


They call themselves Freezoners.

I just don't understand how people believe any of the scientology stuff. I mean a lot of mainstream religions sound crazy but scientology REALLY sounds crazy. Of course there were plenty of people at Jonestown so I guess we can't rely on pure craziness to keep people away.

They prey on the weak.

Well, the weak with savings accounts and/or open lines of credit. Not much use for the ones who can't pay for their "courses".

I am not a fan of any religion.  Let me say why I am against $cientology:  tonyortega.com.  That's why.  He's been helping expose $cientology for the piece of crap it is for quite a while.  $ci makes children sign billion-year labor employment contracts at far-below minimum wage levels because they (minimum wage level laws) don't apply to churches.  The latter law was meant for the benefit of convents with nuns who take a pledge of poverty, but David Miscavige has taken advantage of a foolhardy IRS rule that says his cult is a religion to traffic in children as laborers.  Not in Thailand.  Here.  In the US.

I don't really care if this farce is a religion.  I think all religions are farces anyway.  What it is is a gangster organization that is responsible for several deaths.  Most of the people who were senior in the organization ten years ago have defected, often having to take extreme measures to get out.

Where is the US prosecutor willing to take this gangster act on?  Parents have lost contact with their children (if you leave the Co$, and your family stays behind, they can't contact you.)  Honestly, if you read about all the separated families and child workers and women told to get abortions, you can only come to the conclusion that law enforcement in this country has failed.

orclover: If lawsuits and pet killing (and occasional accidental homicide) is the worst that Scientologist can do, then they are merely an annoyance and not a threat. Everybody treats this cult like its the mob. They dont have the balls to be like the mob.


The trouble with people who look at something like Scientology and see a house of cards, easy to topple, is that Scientologists have been doing what they do for a very, very long time and have gotten very, very good at it.

They remind me a lot of those Westboro people, who all know EXACTLY how far to go to avoid breaking the law, and will walk right up to that line and dance. No one's going to bring them down because they know right where to stand to get full protection under the law for every reprehensible thing they do. Does anyone really think anything remotely resembling a paper trail leads from a dead dog to David Miscavige? Even if it can be conclusively proven, with 27 8x10 color glossy photos with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each one was, that a Scientologist killed their dog, Miscavige will waste no time in insisting that that was a horrible "suppressive person" who was cast out from their midst a long time ago and the Church is lily white and innocent of all wrongdoing amen.

What will probably bring down Scientology is people laughing at them. Parker and Stone did sorta get the ball rolling...
