rastafarianism is as stupid as scientology or mormonism

Music posts are a bannable offense.

real good video on co opted pigs in clearwater, rife with surreal street circus interactions between actual humans and scientologist drones :lol:

According to Rathbun, Miscavige came to the Hole one evening and announced that everyone was going to play musical chairs. Only the last person standing would be allowed to stay on the base. He declared that people whose spouses “were not participants would have their marriages terminated.” The St. Petersburg Times noted that Miscavige played Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” on a boom box as the church leaders fought over the chairs, punching each other and, in one case, ripping a chair apart.

this is probably the most whacked out video of all (dude details all of the Fair Game shit they did through the 70s and 80s).

planting drugs, spiking toothpaste with LSD, etc...

You guys are probably up on all the finer points already, but I spent the last couple of days reading this, and it's well worth a look if you're interested in learning about what actually goes into the "bridge," including a running tally of the costs incurred. Lots of questions answered here, including why Scientologists so often come across as automatons, and why they fail to understand that they seem to look like complete fucking lunatics during confrontations. I'm also pleased to find that my $$$ estimates a couple of years ago were right on the money!

One of the most interesting parts of this series, in my opinion, is where the people interviewed relate their experience with OTVIII people in real life vs the hype surrounding OTVIII. Invariably, these people are just as fucking lousy as everyone else, with no apparent special powers whatsoever. Even in the early stages, Scientologists are taught that they are the only people who are effective at communicating, but I think we can all see how that's working for them. In the later stages, where you're supposedly on a higher plane of existence altogether, the results are even more laughably dismal.

RE: that Vanity Fair piece on the new documentary, check out the CoS response: http://www.freedommag.org/hbo/

It's amazing how childish and petty these idiots can be! The video defaming the people interviewed in the doc even has blurry PI footage straight out of a "shocking beach body" tabloid exposé, and the nicknames and pictures on the sidebar are ridiculous. My favorite is Marc Headley, whose picture has clearly been warped, circus mirror-style. In every instance, the "church" attempts to discredit these individuals based on irrelevant details. For example, they slam Karen de la Carriere ("The Oldest Professional" — I'll admit that's a pretty good turn of phrase) for being both old, as well as for having taken some risque photos at some point. Solid work, guys!

Also, here's some bad news: the guy that I referred to back in 2012 (the father of a friend) has apparently died (and apparently, this happened in 2012, as well). I'm trying to get more info on the situation, but there's nothing online.

Anyway, there is quite a bit of information about him personally on various Scientology blogs. Here is a list of the training that he completed, including the Ls and OTVIII: http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/st ... tolan.html

If anyone's interesting in going down this particular rabbit hole, he appears to have been a pretty regular commenter on ex-sci blogs and forums: "OTDT"

Here's a great lecture snippet from Ron himself! Talk about being a good communicator!

:fonz:

your friends dad died and he was OTVIII ?! must've been from some unseen intergallactic evil force not yet accounted for..

no seriously, the cool thing about this thread is, i dont know for sure but i have a hunch, i think a lot of the carnival style harassment and surveillance that marty has suffered through will end up in this new documentary. unless he's been hoarding all the good shit..

that truthabout link is a fucking huge mess of content :tup:
The television première of Going Clear will take place on HBO on March 16, 2015.

siiiick

and considering how viciously the church goes after people with lawsuits and all the daringly obscene shit they've pulled off in the past(things they did to achieve "church" status in the first place), it's not exactly easy going if you attempt to present all the information and stories to the public in a way that isn't functionally marginal ie. youtube warriors. there hasn't really been anything like this yet for that reason. on this level. and i'm sure theres an unreal amount of blockbuster information they probably had to leave out. apparently the word is that the hbo legal team (over a 100 deep) were working overtime on this just to be sure everything was air tight etc.

but yeah still :wank:

:tup: :tup: :tup:

my big hope is that it's presented in a way that highlights the universality of the seduction, instead of attempting to distance scientology from any/every other ideology. I'm sure my wish will not be granted, but for me the reason this stuff hits home is because it is just a cartoonishly ramped-up version of so many other belief systems, religious or otherwise. am I a fucking psycho for thinking this? #iconoclasm

yes and no? to me it's so integral to the explosion and popularity of the self help age and it has such an amazing industrial component to it that its like what religion will look like 1000 years from now kinda thing. if there is still religion

there's just more to talk about when it comes to scientology than just making it another smug, high handed attack on belief and faith. like its literally so much more monstrous than that

Steve Hassan uploaded a shitton of interviews with a bunch of Scientologists (and other former cult people) a few months ago, they're all worth watching.

the backpatting is hating what everyone hates

the proxymocking is making it look like it means something to say such things when you ''kinda'' mean it about something else

ask yourself, why does it feel so right to shit on scientology?

why does it feel right to shit where others are shitting?

ask yourself again if you might not want to bend with the group. hold your log, find your truth. shit in private
