Well, they've already fallen for one line of bullsh*t, so it stands to reason...

If there were ever two cults that were made for one another they are the Scientologists and the Ayn Rand followers. Both cults provide a framework and justification for sociopathic behavior in the form of poorly written works of fiction.

So, we have a religious cult of mush-brained idiots setting out to fleece a political cult of mush-brained idiots. Sure, why not?

The cult has found its messiah.

"The bottom line is that the guys who are Ron Paul supporters are free-thinkers," said Doerges. "They're more literate. They're able to actually look at data, and make decisions about it. That's sort of the keynote of Scientology."

Sir you have hit the nail on the head.

RON PAUL may have promised to finally do something about Xenu, since other politicians won't.

Libertarians mixing with Scientologists? Isn't that like brewing espresso with Red Bull?

Rich Cream: theorellior: St_Francis_P: then paralyzed them and froze them in a mixture of alcohol and glycol to capture their souls.

I had no idea the soul was soluble in a mixture of alcohol and glycol.

Quite the opposite. Frozen within, being insoluble prevents escape.

/like I would know

If I remember correctly, the astral-projection soul-hopping deal was supposed to be a thoroughly understood science in the star empire, and the paralysis mixture would both keep you from killing yourself (and hopping into a new body and warning folks) or astrally projecting (to do something similar) and the result was this body-horror kidnapping followed by complicated execution. Once the souls were loose but disoriented by the nuclear blasts Xenu and co. used magic soul-catching technology to grab the confused spirits and confuse them more with THE EVILS OF PSYCHOLOGY.

It should come as no surprise at this point that L. Ron Hubbard had bad experiences with psychiatry, specifically they tried but failed to help him and in his confused state he decided, "YOU'RE the crazy ones! Not me!!"

It's actually an interesting mythos, if it wasn't being taken seriously and used for acts of evil.

Then again I survived reading the original Battlefield: Earth, so perhaps my tolerance for long-winded bullshiat is just higher than everyone else'.

WizardofToast: I remember in that shiatty Battlfield Earth movie that Xenu wanted all the gold.

...My god. My mind is blown.

Only Scientology and brave Scientologists stand between us and the all-encompassing evil of Xenu. Make fun of them all you like, but they're the real heroes.

I smell a money-making opportunity here. Any way we could whip up some gold-clad "dianos" coins with a volcano on the obverse and LRH's bust on the reverse and sell them as a sure-fire investment vehicle for when civilization collapses?

I know a guy who became a Scientologist because he saw a bunch of hot babes who are gullible and easily mislead.

So Scientology decided to put the kiss of death on Ron Paul.
