Relatively Obscure: Not many people look more like some fictional villain than that guy.How weird is it that he really is a villain?
PC LOAD LETTER: "Miscavige" is practically a fictional evil name, leveraging "mis" as in "misanthropy"
indy_kid: PC LOAD LETTER: "Miscavige" is practically a fictional evil name, leveraging "mis" as in "misanthropy"Whenever I see that name, I always read it as "Miscarriage"!
stuffy: [www.tampabay.com image 702x498]Doesn't look evil at all.
Diogenes: BluVeinThrobber: badhatharry: No comment. I have nothing negative to say about Scientology.You should try a little harderI see you enjoy raping babies.
Benevolent Misanthrope: Being able to prove that real people and places actually existed on earth and "I act like a jerk because I'm human and sometimes humans are complete jerks" versus "I do bad things because volcano aliens possess humans" does kind of tip the credibility scales in favor of pretty much every major religion (including several I haven't discussed--Buddhism, Hinduism, etc--because I'm not well versed enough in them to be able to discuss them intelligently) over Scientology.Perhaps I'll never get it. Because "An alien was exiled, lives in a volcano, and populates humanity with his bad aliens that make human beings do bad things and only answering deeply personal questions, starting at age 6 while holding round cylinders hooked up to some sort of an electronic device, giving all your money and possessions away, severing all connections with all those who disagree with the doctrines of the "church", and generally recruiting new followers aggressively while aggressively pursuing to the point of stalking and harassing those who leave the church can make these bad aliens go away and induce a state of rightness of mind" is no more far-fetched to me than "A cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree."

Benevolent Misanthrope: Confabulat: Benevolent Misanthrope: Lots of things are free. I don't think being in a hotel room is a great indicator of the credibility of anything. And are you really going to pretend that other churches don't ask for money?Anyone else?By the way, this is so childish to have to explain to an adult, but I guess you are all "all religions are dopey and I am smart and I can't tell the difference from one to the other because I'm too smart to understand how to do that," but it's not WHAT Scientology believes that makes them a cult.It's the HOW. And the WAY.You can grab that Gideons' Bible from a hotel room and go walk off to the woods with it and be the best Christian ever.You cannot do that with Scientology. It is more like a college curriculum, and those credit hours are EXPENSIVE.But you can't be a good Catholic that way. Are you telling me Catholicism isn't a religion?Get over your snarky little self. I'm making a point, which is that it's really only a matter of degrees. Enough people start to believe Scientology, it will be socially acceptable and be thought of as a religion instead of a cult.
Benevolent Misanthrope: Confabulat: Benevolent Misanthrope: Lots of things are free. I don't think being in a hotel room is a great indicator of the credibility of anything. And are you really going to pretend that other churches don't ask for money?Have you read how Scientology works? It's more or less a systematic hypnosis system. I'm no Christian, but I certainly understand the difference between a religion and a cult.So, explain it to me. Because I've never gotten anyone to give me a reason better than, "Religions are just like cults, only more people believe in them and therefore they're socially more acceptable."
Confabulat: He's one of the few famous people I actually would be nervous to meet in real life. Cause I'm not sure he really doesn't have laser beam eyes.
badhatharry: No comment. I have nothing negative to say about Scientology.
jake_lex: Is that pic of him from TFA a still from American Psycho? I expect him to start lecturing me about how much better Genesis became after Gabriel left and Phil Collins took over.
