Anytime you need reassurances that the US government is corrupt beyond repair, simply reference the fact that the "Church" of Scientology bought tax-free status. They bought it. Literally. And it all happened right out in the open and nobody gave a shiat.

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.

Scientology can't survive a free internet forever. Their "Prophet" came up with a system that relies on 1975 societal structure to last.

If someone poisoned my dog, I would love to be alone in a room with them.

Let us not forget that Scientology was created in a bar over a bet where Mr. Hubbard stated that if you really wanted to make money, start a religion.

ubermensch: So where did he say he poisoned the reporter's dog? It doesn't, he denied doing it. Reading comprehension fail, subby.


Regarding the assholes own dog, and his fear of it being harmed:
I tell him I don't buy his blaming third parties. That's when Rathbun changes course entirely. "Before you even came here, I'm telling you, I watch out after my dog," he says, as Chiquita lounges nearby. "I don't put it past the sons of biatches, you know what I mean?"

He doesn't seem to realize that when the reporter's dog died he was the leader of 'those sons of biatches'.
And every other time in the article where he says he didn't do something, a sentence or two later he says "OK, I didn't do it, but I told someone else to" or "I didn't do it, but I knew it was being done and didn't bother to stop it."

Dog killing fark. The reporter should have done the interview, kicked him in the nuts, and taken Chiquita as compensation.

You must be very young. Maybe later, after you've read ten or twenty other articles, you'll see that it isn't all that bad compared to a lot of stuff on the Internet.
