Well, you were briefly involved with a movement against Scientology and that this some how reflects that I am wrong about these movements using
absolutely no consideration for the dignity or wellness of scientologists themselves.
You said "I am wrong".
I am more then briefly involved with groups such as Anom and 4chan, and still stick to my original belief posted in this thread.
I can say that the years of knowing these people "offline and on", that they are not "all ex-members of scientology. Yes, many of them are, but
hardly half. And yes, they do paint themselves as concerned individuals with a heroic quest to remove the evil Scientology from our world.
But never once have I seen them take considerable care in dealing with these so called "lost cultists".
I have sat witness to large 300+ man protests, the organizing of said protests. I have also listened to these people brag about how "powerful they
are" and how "large their movement is". I never hear anyone stand to speak on "saving" these people, just ideas and plots to expose them as
"idiots? or "mindless zealots".
Hence this thread, and most of the replies to it.
So no, I don't see evidence of you "briefly knowing" these protesting groups as proof of me being wrong. In fact, It almost backs me up in showing
that these harassers are blind to the harm they are doing as well as blind to the lack of compassion they use in attacking what they deem "evil" or
As for saying Scientology has lost...lets look at that closer.
Scientology now has more members then it ever has had. They have acquired a "martyr type" status within thjier own following due to people
attacking them in ways that the FBI has called "cyber terrorism" (yes, Anom has been identified as such by the FBI not too long ago). And now
Scientology has a highly polished ad campaign on major networks across the globe attracting thousands of new members yearly.
If this is proof that I am wrong about Anom's success (or lack of) through using nonproductive techniques and personal attacks on Scientology's
members, then I for one do not see it.
I think these movements are as dangerous "if not more" then any cult. They are just as misguided, intent on a sinister agenda, pissed off and
willing to break the law, and operating in a disgusting manner towards other humans who may need "real help"...real help...not this terrorism of
attacking poor people on the streets so angry and miserable people can gloat, point, heckle and laugh as they say things like-
"now THOSE people are messed up...not me!"
Naw...like I said, I am more then involved with these Anom people on a regular basis (hey, us Masked people gotta stick together), and I do see that
they wish to help...but wishing to help and "doing more harm then good" is a far fetch from each other.
If you ask me "Anom" is doing a great job in advertising for the church of Scientology. They show scientologists are "under attack" by "less then
To you, this may seem as a win...to me, I agree with the FBI's terrorism claims.
I know more then a few dozen of these Anom people, and I often end up debating (or arguing with them) on their tactics and operations.
Notice the FBI isn't calling Scientology terrorism...but all within Anom have to worry about being labled as such (and recorded on record as being
Kinda weird there are so many Ex-members of Scientology within these movements against it. How lovely for Scientology that their adversaries should be
easily painted as criminals and not the other way around.
Its easy to notice indecent behavior, no matter who does it.
I am not saying that Scientology is right...but I sure don't see many videos of them wrongfully hunting people in public and ridiculing them for
their beliefs (nevermind the other various criminal activities both planned and performed)
