So, can you say anything good about Scientologists? Well, they are snazzy dressers. Oh and Tom Cruise is one! And the person who started scientology also wrote that sci-fi classic “Battlefield Earth”.
What a great movie… 😐 OK let me go on the offensive now.
..Scientology is rather young. Beginning in 1953, during a coincidentally timed slump in Layfaette Ronald Hubbard’s book sales. Originally a few “help centers” sprung up, taking the places of bookstores where for a nominal fee and the purchase of a copy of Dianetics, you could soon be feeling the effects of a new way to look at religion.
Of course the timing is all coincidental right? BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Wrong-O-Laserbrain! Take a look at this quote from a Sci-Fi convention in Newark, New Jersey:”Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wanted to make a million dollars, the best way to do it would be to start his own religion.”Guess who said that? OK that was an easy one… Guess when he said it? March 1949. Oddly enough he hasn’t mentioned this directly to any of his cul– I mean, his congregation.
Scientology bases itself on a belief that we are simply the living vessels for an alien soul. That’s right. The alien soul is called the thetan.
A human being can get in touch with his inner E.T. by achieving a level of clear (Scientology plays like an RPG, you get XP, you raise levels) It takes a lot of money to become clear, for reasons I have yet to discern, but Juliette Lewis apparently was able to do so, which leads me to believe it was indeed money that spurs the alien to the surface, and not intelligence.Now, let’s take this further….
As many of you know, I’m not a religious man, however I would be remiss to use one of the fundamental pillars of Christianity to lend credence to a new religion I was trying to set up. Yep, that’s right, Jesus was a Scientologist. According to L. Ron Hubbard, Jesus was an ordinary man, who went a shade above clear. This allowed his mortal body to produce what looked like miracles, although according to L.
R.H. any scientologist can do this with enough training in the way of the thetan. I’m wondering why Scientologists aren’t trying to bring more credibility to their religion if this is the case, hell, one or two of them could damn near end world hunger! Oh right, the thetan needs money to perform.That kind of a quip about Jesus I would soon dismiss, being that I’m not overly religious, however, not more than three years after this statement, he said Jesus was a deviant.
Claiming Jesus liked to pork little boys. Calling people who pork little boys deviants is just fine by me, and even calling Jesus a deviant would be OK if that’s what floats your boat, I’m not here to defend Jesus. But the utter hypocrisy in using Jesus to sell your books, then attacking him later is unforgivable.
What did Jesus ever do to you? Well, he might have made your parents name you Layfaette, but other than that he did nothing to you…So let’s look into what kind of organization it is.It’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard (I’m gonna call him ‘Fay’ from now on) has an extensive criminal history, including fraud and grand, grand theft, (He stole 3 yachts) beating his wife, tax evasion, evading arrest and prosecution, and a rap sheet that would put Al Capone to shame, including shelling an inhabited island when he was in the Navy.The organization is suspected in covering up the deaths of no less than 20 of it’s former members, a belief made stronger by a memo the FBI acquired in a raid of a church of scientology.
Note that any “enemy” of the Church of Scientology (A term which I’m sure would or will include me) is called a “Supressive Person”. And according to a memo written by Hubbard in October 1967, Suppressive Persons are to be considered “Fair Game,” which “may be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.”What about poor Lisa McPherson? Her health had been deteriorating rapidly, loosing somewhere between 25 and 50 pounds in 13 days, and when she went into shock, the Scientologists in charge of her care left the facility they were in in Largo, drove the speed limit or under, PAST another hospital, to New Port Richey, because there was a Scientologist on staff there. No autopsy was allowed.
And Fay himself. Reported dead by the Church on January 24, 1986. Convieniently knowing he was going to die, drafted his last will and testament on January 23, 1986. This can be explained by his heightend attenuity with his thetan, of course. Oddly enough, he had no record of any health problems at all. The coroner had some odd notes, the fingernails and toenails looked extremely unkempt (similar to a hobo) and he had 4 puncture marks in his arse, covered with a perfectly placed bandaid.
Hell, I’m young and I couldn’t give myself 4 shots in the ass all in a spot where they’d be covered with a single bandaid, and as I noted before, Fay was in perfect health, what were the shots for? But, the church allowed no autopsy, and the body was cremated…
on January 25th. The same day as the Coroner’s post mortem.One last quote from the Founder of Scientology himself.:”I believed in Satanism. There was no other religion in the house! Scientology and black magic.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that Scientology is black magic that is just spread out over a long time period. To perform black magic generally takes a few hours or, at most, a few weeks. But in Scientology it’s stretched out over a lifetime, and so you don’t see it. Black magic is the inner core of Scientology — and it is probably the only part of Scientology that really works.” – Fay, September 1983.
