This is a must see, it is ten minutes long, pause it when the incredulous guy in his greenhouse at the address for the worldwide scam dba scientology (outside of the USA) is asked if he knew his address was the corporate headquarters for an international psychopolitical terrorist organization engaging in a worldwide business by fraud. (With a recent fraud conviction in France):

Not heard much about this cult in recent media until you posted this. Unsurprising really, but then profiteering off other people is part of their doctrine. Don''t they believe in little aliens that crawl all over your body or something along those lines.

I remember confronting members of this cult in my home town. They don't like being asked questions.

This is not something that is limited to only the Church of Scientology. Almost all large corporations do this kind of thing. I think it's good that the CoS is being called out on it but we have to remain skeptical as to why they alone are being targeted.

True, but I loathe Scientology and all that it stands for. I think it's their general attitude that does it for me. Oh and Tom Cruise!

I read the stuff on this page LINK and its link to a very long US tax filing and I am convinced that at the very top, they solicit "Donations" from fat cats - the voice behind Bart Simpson recently "donated" either 5 or 10 Million dollars, and Tom "couch jumper" "show me the money" Cruise made a 5 million dollar "donation", and I am convinced they were deducted from US Federal Taxes, that is what they do.

What is not revealed is the under the table quid pro quo - which is my belief and opinion that, they are being sold access to one of seven "secret" survival facilities... listed on that page and one more that is known about but not mentioned there, in Wyoming.

The Mormons are next in my opinion...as well they should be.

Sucks from a "there are many whom actually believe it and are situated in a family atmosphere mentality"...but the Mormons have been affiliated with CIA and have been implicated in misusing their tax exempt status...

Interesting times...get ready...

I am now off to create a religion of me and make myself exempt from paying taxes. Now, close my eyes, open an atlas and place a pin randomly on a page. That's where the cult of me will be incorporated - Mongolia!

Did you hear about the Belgian Catholic priest being investigated for involvement in a sex scandal. Makes me think forgiveness could be very difficult to come about.

Bingo! You win the jackpot! Guilty as charged, on both counts...

On count One


Don''t they believe in little aliens that crawl all over your body or something along those lines.


This is from a US Federal Court Civil Case in Alexandria Virginia...

Scientologists believe that most human problems can be traced to lingering spirits of an extraterrestrial people massacred by their ruler, Xenu, over 75 million years ago. These spirits attach themselves by "clusters" to individuals in the contemporary world, causing spiritual harm and negatively influencing the lives of their hosts "

Man, those little critters. Now, we should be taxing them for occupying our bodies for all this time. I have seen some of the anonymous videos, and enjoyed the stand they make. Gonna have to watch some again.

Excerpt



Question: Did L. Ron Hubbard state that the way to make money was to start a religion?

Answer... No. , This is an unfounded rumor. The rumor got started in 1948; according to the church, when "one individual" claimed he heard Hubbard make such a comment during a lecture. "The only two people who could be found who attended the very lec ture in 1948 denied that Mr. Hubbard ever made the statement," says the media guide?
But the man who invited Hubbard to speak, Sam Moskowitz, a 74-year-old sci- ence fiction editor in Newark, swears to this day that Hubbard made the remark in front of 23 members of the Eastern Science Fic- tion Association, most of whom are now dead.
The church also ignores a 1983 book by Lloyd Arthur Eshbach, 'Over My Shoulder. Reflections of the Science Fiction Era." Eshbach recounts a 1948 meeting with Hubbard and two others in New York-

"The incident is stamped indelibly in my mind because of one statement that Ron Hubbard made. What led him to say what he did I can't recall-But in so many words Hubbard said- -'I'd like to start a religion, That's where the money is"

Two other Hubbard contemporaries quote him similarly in the unauthorized 1987 biog- raphy "Bare-Faced Messiah." And two sci- ence fiction experts contacted for this story confirm -that Hubbard made such remarks before be wrote his treatise on Dianetics, which was first published in the magazine Astounding Science Fiction. But church offi- cials maintain that these people are sorely confused. The church says another famous writer said the exact same thing----George Orwell, who wrote to a friend in 1938 that there might be a lot of cash in starting a new religion-

"It seems that Orwell's comment has been misattributed to Mr. Hubbard," the church media guide tells reporters. Only one problem: The Scientology opera- tive who says he came up with the Orwell explanation is Robert Vaughn Young, who quit the central church in 1989 after 20 years as a spokesman. While researching the life of the Founder, Young says he talked to three Hubbard associates from the fiction days who remembered Hubbard talking about getting out of the penny-a-word game for the more lucrative field of religion. Young ignored those comments, of course. and by a stroke of luck came up with the Orwell quote.

The irony is beyond Orwellian. But the man 'who wrote '1984" would certainly relish the scenario. The Hubbard quote gets sent down the memory tube, replaced by another, more suitable source. Over time, as Orwell understood. a lie can become the truth. Who will dispute it?

There are a few differences between the Mormons and $cientology...

1) The Mormons haven't killed people in a hundred years.. since they massacred that wagon train in utah and then blamed it upon "the Indians" Those sons of %itches planted arrows as "evidence" See Mountain Meadows Massacre

The scientologists appear to still do it after taking everything a person has, and more. At least when a street mug demands your wallet they give you a choice "Your money OR your life." In scientology they rob you of BOTH. See whyaretheydead.info

2) The Mormons make no secret they have a philosophy of preparedness.... members know about this. It is for the good of all true mormon believers...

In $cientology, the fact of their numerous survival facilities is a secret from their own members.

That is the definition of sociopathy, having no conscience, being unable to conceive of the suffering being inflicting upon a fellow member of the human race.

There is enough suffering in this world without anyone creating misery especially for profit.

A Reverend told me "Truth is G-d's Word"

When a man is telling you the truth one can always work things out.
When dealing in lies, there is no end to conflict

Scientologists Charged With Extremism
26 July 2010 The Moscow Times

Prosecutors have opened a criminal case against a Scientology center in the town of Shchyolkovo, 13 kilometers northeast of Moscow, on charges of inciting hatred, punishable with up to five years in prison.

Investigators have decided that documents and literature confiscated at the center promoted extremism, a law enforcement official told Interfax, without elaborating. The decision was based on expertise conducted by leading Russian linguistic institutions, including the Linguistics Institute at the Academy of Sciences, Interfax reported.

In April, works by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard were added to a federal list of extremist materials on the decision of a Siberian court, which de facto rendered all Scientology centers open to prosecution. The court's decision slammed Hubbard's books as inciting social and religious hatred, justifying violence, especially toward opponents of Scientology, and promoting anti-state views.

From what I have seen and experienced the Russians are absolutely correct.
