Scientology Will Have 24 Hour TV Channel By Summer 2017

Looks like Scientology is calling Leah Remini's bluff:

SOURCE


The Church of Scientology will reportedly get its own 24-hour cable channel starting this summer — following a year of worse-than-usual PR for the church, after former member and actress Leah Remini aired her very critical take on the church in an A&E reality show.

Scientology expert Tony Ortega reports he got word of the church’s plans for a cable channel from a tipster who pointed him to a search on the Spectrum — previously Time Warner Cable — channel guide that now shows the Scientology Media Productions TV Schedule. The programming is all “TBA,” but the network is expected to be churning out Scientology content by the summer, according to Ortega.


Too bad Leah wasn't bluffing:

SOURCE


Leah Remini isn't backing down. Nearly four years after leaving the Church of Scientology, the controversial religion's most high-profile defector is ramping up her effort to blow the whistle on stories of abuse, misconduct and retribution — locking in a renewal deal for an expanded second season for her A&E exposé, Scientology and the Aftermath.

"The way the organization has responded without taking responsibility for what they do to people, I need to continue," Remini tells THR. "It would be another [scenario] if they stopped trying to discredit everyone's stories and said, 'If you don't like it, don't be part of Scientology."


The church is working overtime to do both damage control and expansion. It would appear that David Miscaviage is cashing in the bulk of Scientology's chips in an attempt to wrench one more tightened grip of the tentacles. Alas, it will all be in vain. With all the negative PR the church has been receiving lately not just from Leah Remini but from Louis Theroux, Alex Gibney, Tony Ortega, and others, any coup de'tat attempt at subduing the masses will be met with fierce criticism and condemnation from the online community.

I cannot see this network lasting too long. But it may just be worth it, perhaps I'll get my THC oil and a bag of popcorn and ride it out.


The same tipster, Ortega posted on his Underground Bunker blog Wednesday, attended a birthday event for the church’s notorious deceased founder, L. Ron Hubbard, earlier this month, at which the church’s current controversial leader, David Miscavige, promised his followers a TV channel by summer 2017. Miscavige, according to Ortega’s tipster, “ran down a list of shows which would be appearing on the channel, including programming by Freedom magazine, 9 hours of L. Ron Hubbard biographical episodes, the ‘Meet a Scientologist’ series, episodes about each Ideal Org, and videos about the church’s ‘Fourth Dynamic Campaigns.’” Or as Ortega explains it, “outreach and expansion.


What kind of ads do you guys think they will air?

I think it's safe to say we won't be seeing any advertisements for pharmaceuticals.

Someone's going to crank up their DVR to savor every last bit.

It will be really funny in 10-20 years when the church is completely dismantled and we have these Scientology TV shows to look back on.

I checked into their "religion" and I doubt if I would ever be interested in it. They call their church scientology and they can't even figure out how to properly build a sauna to excentuate it's healing properties. They have a hard time seeing out of the windows of the box they have created.

It's a pseudo occult, psuedo religious, ponzi scheme, parading itself around as a religion (that has tax exempt status).

Sounds like a good time to bust out those crazy pamphlet images you dug up and start cranking out memes!

Rumors are there's an interspecies, homosexual, biographic reenactment of Hubbard & Xenu's love affair.

I'm thinking that when the channel gets canned, Hubbard & Xenu: The Reality Show will be syndicated on Bravo and hosted by Andy Cohen.

Maybe they can have Sunday night movie specials starring Tom Cruise or John Travolta.

I'm very interested in seeing which cable companies choose to carry it. I think that it will be very likely that maybe one or two companies in Calif may take it on and that's it. Remember when Al Jazeera America tried to get on cable? No way the bible belt lets it in.

I find Scientology extremely interesting. For someone like Leah Remini to be involved, because she was raised in the cult, is understandable to me. I just don't see how others fall for it. Like other cults, I assume it just preys on the weakest, most insecure, of us.

The roots of Scientology, like most American made religions, are so fascinating; a case of truth being stranger than fiction. L. Ron Hubbard, the most prolific science fiction writer of all time, also a naval veteran and former member of Aleister Crowley's occult Thelma sect (some would call satanic, certainly Luciferian), scams Jack Parsons (a founder of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory) out of his life savings and his wife and uses the money to buy a yacht and found the cult. Simply amazing.

I understand that the "Church" actually produced an audible book version of the novel. It uses many voice actors, includes original music, lasts something like 35 hours, and has Hollywood quality production. Jim "The Sellout" Marrs has been pumping it in a couple of different interviews I've heard in the last few months.
