HOW SCIENTOLOGY COERCED A CHILD TO HAVE AN ABORTION: THE LAURA DECRESCENZO FILES

—————- In anticipation of her biggest day in court yet, Laura DeCrescenzo and her attorneys hit the Church of Scientology with 928 pages of new filings —————- Details from 18,000 pages of evidence show how Scientology manipulated a child to keep her working under slave-like conditions —————- A key document describing DeCrescenzo’s unwillingness to have her coerced abortion is missing from the evidence Scientology was ordered to produce By Tony Ortega Wednesday afternoon, Laura DeCrescenzo filed explosive new information in her four-year legal odyssey against the Church of Scientology, submitting 928 pages of new declarations and exhibits in anticipation of a crucial October 23 hearing in her lawsuit against the church which alleges abuse, including allegations that she was forced to have an abortion at only 17 years of age. Key to the new filings is information gleaned from thousands of pages of previously secret files that the church fought mightily to keep under wraps. But on Monday, the U.

TOM CRUISE IN CLEARWATER: Scientology Gathering Big Names For Product Launch

Hey, Oblivion's out on DVD!

Hey, Oblivion ‘s out on DVD!

After Tom Cruise made a disastrous decision to be more public with his involvement in Scientology in 2005, he’s been relatively low-key about the church, and he’s not been seen at many of its major events. Now, we have evidence of Tom’s presence at a surprsingly small-scale church event, and it’s caught top former Scientologists by surprise. They tell us this is an important new development, and confirms not only Cruise’s continuing loyalty to Scientology leader David Miscavige, but also that Miscavige is treating the next few months like it was the church’s last stand.

Last month, we worked with Woman’s Day magazine to bring you the story of Anette Iren Johansen, a Norwegian church member who was the first woman to speak publicly about being “auditioned” for a role as Tom Cruise’s next girlfriend. Dozens of women in 2004 and 2005 were asked to try out for a role in a film that turned out to be an elaborate dating scheme after Cruise’s relationship with actress Penelope Cruz fell apart. Johansen decided to come forward about her own 2005 audition after she left Scientology and has begun speaking out about its abuses.

But Anette is so fresh out of the church, she’s still on some Scientology e-mail lists, and one she just received from Clearwater, Florida is a doozy.

It was sent to her by Niels Kjeldsen, her former “power FSM” or field staff member, a recruiter who pushes people to get more Scientology services (and takes a cut of the proceeds).

Yesterday, Kjeldsen sent Anette a message from Clearwater that was written in Danish. Anette helped us translate it to English, and here’s the first part of it…

Hi there,

After a nice trip to Denmark and a trip to the islands of Greece, I am now back in Florida.

Crazy with enthusiasm is the description that best fits the latest FLAG graduations. People are raving when COB comes on stage and gives his uptone briefings. If you are not already well up the tone scale, you are inevitably carried upwards. The hall and the corridor outside are packed with people. This is where you will find the largest collection of VIPs and hardcore Scientologists. The super famous also come this way. The last graduation had Tom Cruise take my seat in the front row.

Let us translate further what Kjeldsen is talking about. Scientology’s spiritual headquarters (the Flag Land Base, or Flag) is in Clearwater, Florida, the town it invaded in 1975 after Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard had spent nine years running his worldwide organization from a small armada of ships. The Fort Harrison Hotel in Clearwater is Ground Zero for the church; wealthy Scientologists travel from around the world to stay there and take all but the highest level of church courses, the Operating Thetan levels up to OT VII (the highest level, OT VIII, is only delivered on Scientology’s private cruise ship, the Freewinds).

There are many wealthy and important Scientologists at Flag at any one time. And on Friday nights, graduation celebrations are held to congratulate members who have completed courses. Across the street from the Fort Harrison Hotel is the Flag Building (its more informal name is the Super Power Building), which is finally going to open on October 6 after being under construction for 15 years. In order for it to open, Miscavige (known as “COB” in the church) has been telling his followers that a vast number of conditions have to be met, including as many members as possible coming to Flag to redo low-level processes that they might have already finished years ago. (And these re-runs are not cheap.)

Not only is the Super Power Building finally going to open, it’s happening in concert with a re-launch of the Scientology “technology” itself. Called the Golden Age of Technology Phase II, it’s a reworking of arcane rules and processes which means redoing even more levels for church members. Ex-Scientologists say they’re astonished that current members would fall for yet another reworking of the same old material. (Hubbard has been dead since 1986 and by Scientology doctrine, nothing really new can be added to the “technology.” Miscavige’s innovations tend to be little more than repackaging and minor tweaks.)

Also, the annual International Association of Scientologists gala, usually held in England under a giant tent, has been moved to November 8-9 in Clearwater, where the giant tent has just been erected.

Miscavige is determined to keep Scientologists focused on these new changes, perhaps in part to distract them from all of the rotten news that has been in the press in the last year. Mike Rinder, at his blog, has been getting smuggled reports which indicate that Miscavige has personally been leading Friday night graduations at Flag in recent weeks, an extremely unusual situation.

And now, we get word that Tom Cruise was sitting in the front row.

Kjeldsen’s e-mail goes on to describe how much progress is being made at Flag (23 new Class XII auditors made, for example), and it says that 50 Freedom Medal winners have confirmed that they’ll be attending the IAS event November 8-9.

We asked Rinder, Scientology’s former top spokesman, to give us his thoughts about the news that Cruise showed up at the most recent graduation.

Miscavige lives to control people and have them hang on his every word.

Good Scientologists will only support him as long as they are convinced he is a) expanding the church and b) is “on Source.”

The smoke he has been blowing is getting very thin and so he has to come up with “bigger and better.” The extent of how over-the-top he is making his next Greatest Show On Earth directly reflects the level of desperation he feels. Things are at Defcon 1. So, he is putting all his eggs into one tent and is planning on blowing everyone away with his latest accomplishments and “proof of expansion” and “dedication to standard tech.”

As a result, he is in Clearwater to build the hype over a few months. He has ordered people in from all over the world. Staff from all orgs. All of his highest level “OTs” to come and pay for the pleasure of redoing the lowest levels of the Bridge. He is ordering everyone to be there for his big events. Cruise is most likely there for a “brush up” on his “OT Powers” and he knows Dave needs support. Things are grim, so he is showing his appreciation to the guy we are all so lucky to have, who stands above Presidents and other world leaders.

To cater to the expected throngs (really to be able to claim that “no venue was big enough in Clearwater”) he is literally erecting a big tent (during hurricane season) and is gambling on forcing large crowds to show up so he can “prove” that expansion is occurring because “this is the largest event in Scientology history.” It’s sort of embarrassing that he has not been able to hold an event that is close to the number of people that attended his 1993 “War Is Over” victory rally to celebrate defeating the IRS that he keeps replaying on video. He has to have something more than just “Ideal Orgs,” so the Super Power building finally opens its doors. How coincidental is it that the groundbreaking was done in 1998 to counter the negative press of the Lisa McPherson case, and now he is finally opening it to counter the negative press of the Garcia case, Leah Remini’s defection, and Monique Rathbun’s lawsuit. He is going to bamboozle everyone with “GAT II” (the proof that “GAT I” was an abject failure) and dust off the old new “Mark VIII” e-meters that have been sitting in warehouses for nearly a decade. And probably one of his dictionaries he has been promising for 15 years. This will prove his on-Sourciness matches his truthiness.

Everything in the Fall is going to be bigger, better, louder and make your clothes twice as white….

And after he has shot his wad, what next? Not renowned for his long term insights, Miscavige will burn that bridge when he comes to it.

 
“I was surprised that Tom Cruise showed up too. I thought he would keep a low profile,” Anette tells us. But then, she thought of another reason he might be there.

“Since the hardcore Scientologists are there, he’s probably looking for a girlfriend,” she quipped.

Well, she might have a point there. We don’t put much stock in recent reports that Cruise is enrolling in a “Scientology dating service” or that Laura Prepon had introduced him to a new girlfriend at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre gala in August (Cruise wasn’t actually there). But who knows, Tom may find someone he likes.

More importantly, this is the first piece of evidence in a long time that Cruise is still as loyal to Miscavige as ever, and has showed up when Scientology’s leader needed him most. Expect things to get even more frenetic in Flag as October 6 (Super Power) and November 8-9 (IAS) near.

Scientology Knocked Back in Garcia Case

Magistrate Judge Thomas B. McCoun III has produced an order that agreed with Luis Garcia’s legal team that Scientology’s subpoenas were overbroad.

The church produced the subpoenas in advance of an October 3 evidentiary hearing in the Garcia federal fraud lawsuit. At the hearing, Scientology will try to prove that Garcia’s team acted improperly by employing an attorney who used to work for the church years ago. The church asked Garcia’s lawyers — and Marty Rathbun and Mike Rinder, two former church officials who are witnesses in the case — to turn over voluminous amounts of evidence before the hearing. But Garcia’s attorney Ted Babbitt objected, saying that Scientology was abusing the process. Now, McCoun III has largely agreed. But he has asked Mike Rinder to produce “privilege logs” of information that documents his involvement as an adviser in the case, so the judge can decide what, of any, records must be turned over to the church.

Here’s an analysis of the ruling by one member of our own legal team…

The magistrate judge granted Babbitt’s motion for a protective order in part and denied it part. Overall, he stated that he agreed that the defendants’ subpoenas were overbroad and reaching, and he scaled down the requests to matters concerning the litigation only. He took note of the fact that while the church claimed that Mike Rinder revealed confidential information learned while an employee of the church, no confidentiality agreements were in the record.

Overall, he limited the church’s reach, but he also held Babbitt’s feet to the fire regarding creation of privilege logs for the Rinder communications, and he ruled that Marty Rathbun is a witness, not an attorney or otherwise subject to attorney-client privilege. Therefore, Babbitt is not in a position to contest the Rathbun subpoena, Rathbun is. The judge also required Babbitt to submit pay documents/agreements for Rinder.

I don’t believe the church will be happy with this ruling.

We also heard from Manhattan attorney Scott Pilutik, who added these thoughts…

It’s interesting that the judge found Marty a witness and not an employee, since that was the argument I made with regard to Monique Rathbun’s case. Since Marty Rathbun is similarly not employed by Jeffrey in Monique’s case, I wonder what utility this order might have for that case. Possibly none, because this is federal court vs the Texas state court case, and the purpose of the inquiry differs as well. But it’s still compelling. Weird that Ray Jeffery didn’t argue that the other day.

Here’s our own scorecard: Scientology files disqualification motions against opposing attorneys as a delaying tactic. In the Monique Rathbun case, the church’s motion to disqualify seemed particularly frivolous, and we expect Judge Dib Waldrip to kill it out of hand. But in the Garcia case, things are much more complex. Brian Culkin’s testimony on October 3 may be crucial, and it’s hard to tell at this point if Luis Garcia’s attorneys will come out of that hearing unscathed.

Geir Isene Complete: The interviews with J. Swift

Earlier, we posted parts of a larger interview done of Norwegian former Scientologist Geir Isene when he was visiting the U.S. recently. Now, J. Swift and Karen de la Carriere and Angry Gay Pope have released the full, nearly hour-long talk they did with Isene. They wanted to make it public this week, as Geir releases a book about Scientology in Norway.

    Just a question here..could the lawyers remove Miscavige from his position as COB.

    • Remy

      No, because he’s not really COB in the usual sense. He’s a dictator with unlimited power- there is no mechanism to remove him.

      I remember reading the legal-y business-y documents that I believed were the ones filed with the IRS or something, and on paper, yes, Miscavige can be removed by the board of directors. I will try to find those, but I am not promising anything. Also, it was recently mentioned that CST I believe it is can buy the trademarks back from RTC for something like $10. Someone please correct me or go more in depth with this.

        An impersonation of Edward G. Robinson.
        I don’t hear it.
        (Edit: maybe I do!)
        Yeah. Now I can’t NOT hear it.

        • L. Wrong Hubturd

          I agree, it’s not very close, but it’s still the first thing that pops in my mind.

          • 1subgenius

            See my edit.

          • 1subgenius

            I even downarrowed myself (ouch!) for NOT hearing it.
            Oh, shit, it’s now easy to impersonate LRH’s voice. Just do a version of Edward G.
            Kinda like doing a Cher impersonation. Just do a version of Mr. Ed. Try it. It’s fun!

            • L. Wrong Hubturd

              Your welcome.

            • Robert Eckert

              Interesting. It has been observed before that if you up-arrow yourself, it shows up on your screen but nobody else sees it. Nobody has tried sui-down-arrow before; it works the same.

      • Bury_The_Nuts

        OMG!

    Has anyone posted this yet …Tampa Bay Times;;; about Wed Deadline for Scientology to get their act together and comply with permit issues and plans?

    BAM!

    • Ruby

      Thanks for this!

    • Bury_The_Nuts

      who the fuck is Bill Horne! ASS WIPE!

      • Observer

        I bet he’s been safepointed

        • Ruby

          I bet he has just been reading the news and is caught in the middle of what not wanting to become fair game.

      • TheHoleDoesNotExist

        Yeah, I mean they’ve sat on this thing for decades. They lied to the city about expecting 10,000 (Don’t you have to have Some kind of documentation if you’re asking for special privileges like this?). It’s only weeks away. And what venue are they talking about? The tent? Are they going to stick thousands of dressed up whales roaming the streets? what?

        Bill Horne needs to dump the scientology dictionary and look up “DEADLINE” in the real world dictionary. Hey, maybe even in his friggin’ job rules book, maybe?

        Still, they made it public that they are Pissed Off. So that’s good.

        “I’ll have to determine what the ‘miss’ is. It could be an
        administrative issue and I’ll take it into account,” Horne said. “It is a
        drop-dead date, but there may be an exception that may have to be made.
        I don’t know that until I get more facts. But we don’t expect people to
        miss those dates.”

        • Bury_The_Nuts

          10K….I want those little roll on the floor Icons they have on ESMB! seriously!

          • TheHoleDoesNotExist

            Honestly, don’t they have to show some evidence? Could any non sci business just drop by City Manager’s office and ask to have a bunch of streets closed off for their convenience and everyone else’s inconvenience, and just say, “Yeah, we’re expecting 10,000 to drop by. No really.”

            • Bury_The_Nuts

              And then fine them for the overestimation?

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              $2,000 a head. Isn’t that the going rate?

      • Douglas D. Douglas

        Now, now. He’s just a bureaucrat doing his job. And as much as we, and the good citizens of Clearwater, and most of the rest of the world hate what Scientology is doing, they do deserve the same treatment as any other organization that wants to throw a shindig in downtown Clearwater.

        Of course, they must also comply with every, single, solitary, infinitesimal rule and regulation that the city has imposed over the years. I am counting on that!

      • DeElizabethan

        He’s the City Manager who runs things and been in too long imo

    • Ideal Borg Bunkerite

      That Horne character is one wishy washy mofo. Some of his phrasing as well… think he’s on the dole? Its a drop dead date but its not a drop date.. sheesh.

    • Robert Eckert

      They set deadlines for Wednesday and Friday. They should have set both deadlines for Thursday at 2PM.

      • TheHoleDoesNotExist

        Well, there ‘ya go. That’s their “admin slip” except it was the City’s fault! Now that’s scientology!

        • DeElizabethan

          Maybe I should take the dog for a ride?

          • TheHoleDoesNotExist

            yessssss!

        Isn’t it? :) too funny!

      • dbloch7986

        Okay, I swear I didn’t read this before I posted my comment lol…

            I agree! I read your comment and I thought, “Observer would say that too.” hahaha

    • 1subgenius

      Was it you, or someone else (I intentionally try not to keep track) who had reported photos of sleazy looking construction?
      I said keep on it despite the “closed” status of the report. Point being that Clearwater may be tired of playing the fool.
      The trees may have their revenge yet!

      • Bury_The_Nuts

        That was me. Three nice shots of bad anchors!

        • L. Wrong Hubturd

          Oh, the city NEEDS to know about that for sure.

        • TheHoleDoesNotExist

          Send it to them, Bury! Honestly, I don’t want anyone to get hurt. One of those microbursts and downdraft storms like we had yesterday would laugh at those “anchors” and then knock ‘em down like bowling pins.

          • Bury_The_Nuts

            i already did and they said they have final inspection ….and my photo!!!

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              Okay, then you can have those cookies. I won’t look. Big ole Whoop!

            • Bury_The_Nuts

              yah. I put in a ticket.
              I want to be a major pain in Daves tiny ass!

              If only someone had said something like all it takes for evil is for good people to do nothing.
              And gee, it didn’t really cost much did it?

            • Bury_The_Nuts

              I did have to fess up some personal info….but Meh!

          If they ultimately deny a permit, I’m giving YOU the credit. Who knows which straw broke the politician’s back?

      • TheHoleDoesNotExist

        Heh I was Just thinking about those trees. I mentioned the pictures that Bury put up where some of the foundation poles, looked like maybe corner poles, were set on top of a bunch of 2×4 pieces of wood with a rope round it. It looked real flimsy to the eye.

        Okay, insurance companies. Wonder if it will be on public record which insurance company is giving them liability coverage and if they’ve heard about Western and the Narconon saga.

    • 1subgenius

      Just noticed the name of the chairman of the city’s special events committee.

    • shasha40

      Whoo- hoo ! I’ve been under the weather and feeling like kaka , but Hole , you just made my day !

        hahahahaha!

    • media_lush

      the citizens fight back!

      ….oh, imagine the lulz if they don’t get the street closures…. they’ll still probably put up the barriers and bluff it out BUT if the protesters KNEW they were lying…. yeah, call the police

      • DeElizabethan

        It should be lulz whatever way. The time will have to be known before the event. They will probably fill the streets right in front and side but hardly ask the bus station to close.

        I had an idea. To put my Lifetime membership card in one of those plastic pouches and hang it around my neck while I carry a big stick, I mean an anti-book “Blown for Good” on that Sunday.

        • ThetaBara

          Call the paps to make sure you get into as many photos as possible!

        • 1subgenius

          Do it. I told Mike R to do it too.
          And video it.

    • EnthralledObserver

      Probably been said before, but isn’t it sweetly ironic that the chairman’s name is ‘Hubbard’. Only time I’ll ever respect what ‘Hubbard’ said.

    1-800-868-3411 VOTE FOR LEAH!! You can vote for up to 60 minutes after the show ends via phone and place up to 10 votes per phone!!! I’ve already placed my 10 calls and I’m off to find online voting places!

    • Remy

      that was surprisingly easy, no phone tree, and it hangs up automatically- each call only took 10 sec total

      • Miss Tia

        TOTALLY easy! I also voted on the ABC site. You have to register for an ABC account unless you sign in via FB or twitter (I won’t sign into pages with that info). Once you sign into the ABC page–via an ABC account, FB or twitter, you then get 12 votes to use! I of course used them for Leah!!

      • TheHoleDoesNotExist

        Yes, that was quick! More than anything, I hope Leah has a lot of fun on this show and can bask in the sunshine and show of support. Also, great exercise! She can laugh and dance and quip like a free woman and not have to give a damn who might “write her up”. Free at least!

        • Bury_The_Nuts

          K.I did it ! Until they told me to go the fuk away! yipee

        • aegerprimo

          Blown for good! Leah looked good!

    • Sandy

      I sure hope some one gives me a poke to do this every Monday …

      • i-Betty

        I was just about to ask that, as I’m unable to watch it :)

        • TheHoleDoesNotExist

          Maybe if you ask Miss Tia real nice? and bake cookies?

          • Miss Tia

            I will be the official reminder!! :) I’m also unable to watch it, but I can remember days/times!! :) No cookies necessary either!! (Though I of course wouldn’t refuse one! ;)

            • Sidney18511

              Thank you Miss Tia. Mucho appreciation.

              I think Bill Nye the science guy will be the first to say bye-bye.

            • ThetaBara

              Poor Bill Nye. Science and dancing really do use totally different parts of the brain, though – which hopefully the science guy will understand. Mr Bara plays in a band and says that singing and playing use different brain parts (so it isn’t easy to do both at once, especially if the rhythms aren’t the same).

            • Miss Tia

              As long as Leah stays on for as long as possible!! :)

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              Bury has a few extra cookies tonight.

            • i-Betty

              Tia my darling, my cookies are exceedingly necessary, as is the importance of remembering to call them cookies, not biscuits, when in the Bunker, and you will be plied with them weekly if you will be our Official Remindererer! My cookies are like small, sweet, melty slices of heaven on a plate and they KAOHB :P

            • Miss Tia

              SOLD!!! :D Cookehs!!!! NOM!!!! I need to start signing posts, —O.R. :)

      • Miss Tia

        I will poke!! :)

      “the crumbling church…” great description.

  • dbloch7986

    I was looking for some audio books for my trip to Texas. I wanted some I could download and play on my phone. Naturally I went to Amazon, but their app for Kindle doesn’t support audio books.

    So I went to Audible.com because they have an app. And who’s book do I see on the first page?

    • Bury_The_Nuts

      Lol, Derek, it is a beautiful book.
      Yeah, I know….but the artistry is worth it!

    • L. Wrong Hubturd

      Who’s the narrator for the audio book? Hopefully not DM….

      • dbloch7986

        Oh lord jesus…I wanted to hang myself halfway through watching a recent YouTube video of some scientology gathering the other day.

        I swear every time that tiny son of a bitch opens his mouth a kitten dies.

        • Bury_The_Nuts

          ” a kitten dies”

          I feel kinda bad for laughing so hard at that!

        • L. Wrong Hubturd

          Then most definitely DO NOT watch the bio of LRH posted earlier on here. 40 minutes of DM doing his best take at Don Lafontaine.

          • dbloch7986

            Thank you for the warning kind warning…

            I imagine that one day those DVDs will be like the film from the movie sinister.

    • dbloch7986

      And then also……and even despite Lawrence Wright’s millions of misplaced semi colons that resulted in incredulous lies about Scientology, it’s still in nonfiction…

  • L. Wrong Hubturd

    Speaking of voting y’all. I happen to know someone involved with these guys and they made it to the finals of America’s Got Talent. If you like them at all, please vote tomorrow night. Same deal as Leah voting, 10 times easy peasy on the phone. They’ll get a record deal with Sony and a years gig in Vegas at a hotel. GOOOOOO FORTE!

    Clearwater demands more details about dedication of Scientology building

    In a Sept. 13 email, Christopher Hubbard, chairman of the city’s special events committee, informed church officials that an “incomplete” traffic plan submitted earlier this month must be updated by Wednesday.

    Made giggle when I read that the Chairman of the Events Committee is named Hubbard!! Scientology just
    can’t ignore that pesky thing called WOG rules.

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      read below! or is it up?

    Yikes. Had to speak for seven periods today in a middle school. All I kept thinking was “I want to read the Bunker!” Yes, I’m an addict. Now there are almost 1,200 comments!

    HE’S DONE…. ASSOCIATE WITH HIM AND YOU’LL BECOME A LAUGHING STOCK BY PROXY

    THINK HIS COUCH JUMPING, “GLIB” MATT LAEUR BATING, ONLY SCIENTOLOGISTS CAN HELP AT A CAR CRASH (super power belief in case you didn’t know) WAS EMBARRASSING? …. IMAGINE THE FALLOUT WHEN HE REALISES HIS WHOLE ADULT LIFE WAS BASED ON A CON

      He ends:

      “I have come to understand on a very subjective level that nothing trumps real love and your true family and friends. Especially not devotion to a “third dynamic” that actually destroys all other dynamics in its demand for absolute obedience and unquestioned loyalty to it and nothing else.

      I shall not rest until this inhumane abuse perpetrated by the cult of scientology is ended. And it WILL be ended. Destroying families while crowing from the rooftops how they are champions of human rights and getting families into communication is not just hypocritical, it deserves to be exposed to widespread scorn and ultimately enough outside pressure that their evil impulses are permanently curtailed.

      Mum, may you fly free and happy. Able to choose once more who you want to share your affinity with so generously, as only you can do.

      Peace be with you.”

        Yes, there is hope. It’s hard to see through the grief he will be feeling, but it’s there. I’m so very sorry for him.

      • SLIM

        Completely agree….
        He was in balls deep…
        It will take longer to shake off the LRH evil…
        What he is doing now is appreciated by me…
        Disconnection sucks…No one deserves that…So sad…

      • whenpigsswim

        So with you on this. Good to see everyone pulling together. We all want to see it end.

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      That is a very hurt heart. I am very sorry for your loss, Mike. I should say losses. I am glad that you have grown a family and friends and a network of support around you. It’s not a substitute, but I am glad that you have them with you now as you will need them. Scientology is heartless.

      • 1subgenius

        I would encourage anyone who has condolences to share them on his site.

        • Eclipse-girl

          did that. it is never easy to lose a loved one. Mike has lost many

    • ThetaBara

      Ohhhh. Thanks for the pointer. I lost my mom (not to scientology, but to illness) so I really feel for him right now.

      • i-Betty

        Love to you, too, Thetabara. I’m so sorry to hear about your mum. x

        • ThetaBara

          Thank you, iB. If I had to pick ONE thing that makes Scientology terrible, it wouldn’t be the Sea Org. It wouldn’t even be the Hole. It would be DISCONNECTION. That is BULLSHITNESS!!!

          • TheHoleDoesNotExist

            I think that choice is shared by all, ThetaBara. Mike spoke to his guilt about how he could have been so callous when his father was killed in the car accident and his mother, grieving and hurting in a hospital, and he was too busy at scientology’s hell hole at Int.

            The First Disconnection that occurs is disconnecting from your own self and heart. It’s not the other way around.

            • ThetaBara

              Well said. My heart aches for him tonight, and also for Karen DLC and everyone else whose family has been chewed up by this evil. Even those who managed to escape often did so at great cost.

    • SandiCorrena

      omg!!! A freaking email?

      • TheHoleDoesNotExist

        from a stranger, no less.

        • SandiCorrena

          I tweeted his post to Kirstie; nice church!

          • TheHoleDoesNotExist

            wow, I hope she friggin read this one!

          • i-Betty

            GOOD.

          • L. Wrong Hubturd

            Nice move!

          • Rita Gregory

            Good for you!

        • Free Minds, Free Hearts

          How sad for him to hear this way. What a truly evil cult.

        • Robert Eckert

          The family of Annie (Broeker) Tidman did not hear for six months. The depth of the callousness is so unbelievable.

          • i-Betty

            Six months…..

          • Kim O’Brien

            the story about her makes my blood boil ….i go over the top with the image of her at the airport terminal ( define irony ..or “terminal ” ) and Marty taking her back …it really does something to me . I dunno …maybe some primal thing ..a man has NO right to determine a woman’s destiny . It just resonates with me .He took her choice away and then made it his …as a woman ..on every level ..i fucking hate that

            • stillgrace

              How I wish Annie had done a “Claire Headley” and just refused to acknowledge Marty. She could have just walked up the stairs and got on the plane. She was brainwashed to not think for herself. Damn the cult. Damn the cult.

          • ThetaBara

            And Karen dlC. It’s like they were rubbing her face in it. Which, they probably were.
            Fuckers.

        • MO Mom

          Kind thoughts to the stranger who sent the email. Brave and the right thing to do.

          • MadMaxi

            Amen, mercy knows no bounds in the hearts of those who truly care. God bless the soul who emailed Mike.

        • Rita Gregory

          THDNE what you wrote to Mike made me cry. Absolutely beautiful.

      • aurora50

        Neither his brother nor sister contacted him…
        it is a powerful evil that makes that behavior seem the correct thing to do, as I understand the beliefs, for eternity.

    • Eclipse-girl

      I am glad MR was contacted. I am very sorry for his loss.

    • Rita Gregory

      Thank you for posting this. Left my condolences.

    • aquaclara

      There is a heartbreaking story out there (on his blog or Marty’s) that is about a trip Mike and Christie took to Australia to go see his mother. Due to the damn cult, they were prevented from seeing her, despite their long journey, and her failing health. Bring tissues-it is sad. Bu It is well worth reading as a reminder of the damage this cult does just one more time.

      Thanks for sharing this news-and imagine the pain of finding out that your mother has passed, and services concluded, while the damn cult refuses to tell her own son. This pisses me off. How dare they?

      This is not the time, but if there is anyone still on the fence, start making your plans to get out.
      Help end this hell.

      Every step helps. A vote for a dancer, a review of an anti-cult book, a comment to an article, a Facebook post, an Anon raid, a purchase of a book (and share it around), a donation to Tony, or a letter to the mayor of a town battling a Narconon, a cult building or more….IT ALL HELPS. Every bit.

      And sending sympathy and hugs to those battling these Scilon and Narconon lawsuits is always good, too. They can’t fight the cult alone.

      • whenpigsswim

        I totally agree with your sentiment ‘every step helps.’ I just cast all my votes for Leah, brave woman that she is! If we all keep taking the steps you mention as often as possible, the tide will turn. It already is turning!

      • Lurkness
        • aquaclara

          Thank you!

      • ThetaBara

        I totally agree. Even small actions can make a real difference.

    • MadMaxi

      This is so sad, damn disconnection. Liked the one comment that said they “will stand” with him. I like that. Been debating about making the trip to the big tent for one of the events to protest.

      I’m thinking for Mike and all he and others do to fight this cult, and for all those who have died alone, disconnected, tossed away by the cult and for all the loved ones whose hearts’ worry and break – people have to stand up to the evil of this cult.

      Enough is enough. As aquaclear stated every little action helps.

      At times action calls for real presence and real sacrifice, and I feel with DM’s playing all his cards right now, it maybe the time for physical action for those who are able.

    • EnthralledObserver

      Very sad. But this is why we are all here, to fight this ongoing abuse and manipulation. I take a stand with Mike until the cult is brought to first accountability and then its ruin.

    • L. Wrong Hubturd

      And one more thing to those of you secretly reading here….on the fence…..unsure of you commitment to the COS. If you need any more proof that it is all a shame, a big con to rid you of yourself and your money, this is it. NO GROUP IN IT’S RIGHT MIND DISCONNECTS FAMILY! It’s only done by CULTS to keep those “in” in and those “out” away from the “ins”. Time for a serious uprising in the tent folks. Bring the house down. Not literally, but figuratively. Show DM who’s really in charge. Take your life back. Something CAN be done about it. So, do it! I promise if a few of you speak out and yell back at him, a wave will rise up and you will carry the day. You’ve got just under one month to get the word around to those who you can. In the immortal words of Jean luc Picard, “make it so number 1″

      • EnthralledObserver

        Surely there are a good solid number of disaffected members with invitations to the ‘tent’ event. Man how I’d love to see a rebellion in mob form when tiny Makemerich plods onto his garish stage. Time for action, you have the numbers fence-sitters, you just need to use them!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • Mooser

          “Man how I’d love to see a rebellion in mob form”

          Hey, you gotta give Scientology one thing: Amazingly enough, Neither the Church or Mascara seems to be involved with firearms. That’s amazing, and I don’t think it can last. It is just so hard for me to believe that in America, at least, nobody has decided what MisCarriage needs is a cap in his ass. And MsCarrot hasn’t decided he needs an armory?
          Nope, can’t last.

          • EnthralledObserver

            I’ve heard there are some weapons (a good number) at one of the compounds, but it could be just rumour. I ‘think’ it was Marc Headley who said it, but again, I’m not sure.
            Point is, they are said to have some, but whether they will ever use them it the real question.

      • ThetaBara

        It’s a shame AND a sham!
        I wish I thought this was actually funny, but really it’s just sad.

      • Mooser

        .”unsure of you commitment to the COS.”

        I’m pretty sure that in the civilised world today, no Church is allowed to have temporal or secular or civil power over its members. They cannot fine you, penalise you, imprison you, or even keep talking to you after the simple words “Fuck you, and leave me alone, now!” (practice that, at a scream, if you have trouble with it) They most certainly cannot put their hands on you. If they lock you in a room, and harass you, that rises pretty close to a felony after the first time you say “I’d like to leave now, please.”
        If they do use any kind of coercion or force, you have the right to do anything you need to do to regain your freedom.
        Is their some reason why Scientologists can’t understand these things? Your Church can exhort you, and beg money from you, nicely (and with a fair return in indulgences, of course).

  • DeElizabethan

    Got in my 10 votes. then did 10 on my cell, for Leah. go girl!

    • Aslansown

      I only have one phone these days, but I voted for her 10 times (even though I missed seeing her dance!). I’ll have to catch it on YouTube.

      • ThetaBara

        It will probably hit the Daily Fail tomorrow.

      • ThetaBara

        She did great! And they asked her for her bank account number at the end – LOL!

        • Aslansown

          Ha ha ha! I’m so glad it looks like she’s having fun. It’s got to be a total 180 from what she’s been doing the last few years — sec checks, etc. I do hope she gets to stay on for a least a few more weeks so she can feel that success.

    • aquaclara

      Got all my votes in, too. 12 online! Yeah, Leah!

  • media_lush

    given that the only way the scions can combat Leah on DWTS they would have to choose someone to champion…. out of the remaining celebs who do you think they would chose as being most cult friendly?

    • i-Betty

      Snookie :D

      • media_lush

        explain [this should be good]

        • i-Betty

          Because, in the manner of a set of Russian dolls, she is the only human alive small enough to fit inside DM’s pocket. DM himself fits in TC’s pocket, who in turn fits in Krusty’s fanny pack. Did I get it right?!

          • media_lush

            can you imagine how brilliant Jersey Shore would have been if one of them was starting out in scientology….

            “so, dey made me hold these cans and say what a bunch of douches you guyz r”

            “Dafuq?”

            • i-Betty

              And the wire to these, like, cans, got all, ya know, caught up in my grill, and there was, like, real cubic zirconia which spelled out my name across my, um….teef. It was bleak, man. Bleak.

            • media_lush

              for some reason I got an idea for a brilliant [IMO anyway] comedy.

              Vinny was a young mafia soldier on the way up but one day he accidentally shot the wrong guy and he knew the only way to save his life was by becoming an informer…. Trent, the hardened FBI agent, knew Vinny didn’t stand a chance in regular witness protection but he needed his last case to succeed…. his pension depended on it!

              How to make an informant disappear where the ‘family’ couldn’t get him….. he remembered something about this outfit called the Sea Org….

            • i-Betty

              I love it! It’s going to be big, very big. While I’m sleeping could you please knock up the screenplay and make some suggestions as to cast?

              Sweet dreams :D

            • media_lush

              just spent 10 mins writing some stuff and disqua went squiffy and removed it….aaarrrgghhh!

            • EnthralledObserver

              I hate that too… :p

            • media_lush

              it was a long scene that was about how the sea org ‘handler’ was trying to explain fast track scion speak and acronyms to Vinny…. I then tried to come up with a back-story for the handler that was something to do with John Travolta and the reason Sat Night Fever was such a success.

            • i-Betty

              Oh! I must say sorry if I offended anyone. I’m British so we laugh at everybody: fat, thin, tall, short, long-sighted, short-sighted, clever, stupid, fit, lazy, too few teeth, too many teeth….because we’re all either some or all of the above, and we like to laugh at ourselves.

              I am at least 3 of the above, and they’re not the clever, thin ones! :D

              I forget sometimes that our sense of humour isn’t appreciated by all.

            • MO Mom

              no, no. Wow as in the picture that you just made in my mind! I was stunned!. But I don’t think that Krusty would find into Chick’s piano, unless it’s a concert grand.

              I do speak British humor! And I’m sure your teeth are just fine.

            • i-Betty

              Phew, thank goodness! I’m such a wet lettuce: it kills me if I think I’ve offended someone!

              And thanks to a military upbringing I have the best teeth that German engineering could buy, and they’re rather nice, despite the 3 years of agony I went through to get them :P

        The problem is it won’t let me sign up for an account unless I get past this screen (inputting my email address, etc.). I have triple checked each time I type one in and it keeps telling me that it’s invalid. If I were paranoid I’d think it was b/c someone didn’t want me to vote for Leah…. ;-)

        • Robert Eckert

          Or because the system is flooded with people voting for Leah.

          • Aslansown

            I hope so!

          There is a little terms and conditions box-make sure that is checked! Good luck!

      Thanks! I missed it. Eat Your Liver Out, Kirstie Alley (since she has no heart, what’s left). !

      Not bad job first time out. Her partner nailed it though “Quit Judging Yourself” Leah! You’re not in scientology anymore! (Oh, and lose the grey colors, Not your colors, and no neck chokers and definitely no smarmy hair buns…. get a new hair dresser and dress designer. You looked fabulous at rehearsals!)

      Leah reminds me a lot of our very own Bury. Yeah, she’s just that sassy but with a heart you can’t miss.

      • i-Betty

        “Leah reminds me a lot of our very own Bury. Yeah, she’s just that sassy but with a heart you can’t miss.” That’s lovely, and so true :)

        A score of 21 is so great for the first time out!

        • TheHoleDoesNotExist

          Oh yes! I think she has a lot of potential. It’s very difficult to bark at certain muscles in certain areas that have stopped talking to you years ago and expect them to suddenly jump up and obey your every demand. You have to do some back peddling, movie and a dinner, that sort of thing. She has the spirit to pull it off, though. I can imagine she’ll be one of those that progresses in leaps and bounds.

          • ThetaBara

            Her hands were really graceful and the two of them seemed to dance very well together. I haven’t seen the other clips but if she isn’t up against a disabled military veteran, she might do quite well.

          • Nevermore

            Yeah, I recently took it into my head to try some ballet – just warm-up/barre exercises. My mind remembers them, but the body parts were all going ‘WTF???’ :D

            Oh hope you’re still up Hole as I took the trip but saw about Mike’s loss and did that first.

            Looks like the floor is in and a skeleton of a stage. It had both front doors open and lit up but no one working. Huge rolls of something, maybe that’s the drapes they will put up inside as shown in that pic from UK. People and members were starting to leave. Coachman and Power. Average number of public cars. The walkway above the street was all lit up.

      Went to abc.com, to DWTS voting page and registered w/o much trouble. You get 12 votes to use as you wish. Gave them all to Leah. I think she looked great and had excellent dance moves and had an expression on her face that was confident and playful at the same time.

      • DodoTheLaser

        Done.

        • DodoTheLaser

          P.S. They also give you an option to vote through signing in with your Twitter and/or Facebook. I found it glitchy. Could be a browser compatibility issue. The sure fire way is to register with abc.com, just like Illinoisian said, they will send you a confirmation email, click the link and vote 12 times for Team Leony.

        I saw this post by you and went to his blog, oh my heart aches for him!!! THIS is the evil that DM perpetuates! It is pure evil to ‘disconnect’ families from one another and cut them off and not even notify them of their passing or let them see them in their final illness!!

      • sister wendy

        yes! me too!

      Boy do I hear that! First the tragic event in Washington, DC. My heart almost stopped when I tuned into CNN today and saw a friend from high school talking to a reporter about how they were shot at but blessedly missed. So grateful my friend Terrie Durham is safe. Then the great job Leah did tonight brought a smile to my face. Now the sad news of Mike Rinders mother. Roller coaster of a day.

    okay…. earlier today we had the story of ‘Suri’ in a Lake Placid bungee jump with her dad …. that strangely only ONE frikkin’ outlet on the whole of the internet chose to run with….

    here’s a story that just hit Mailonline…. boring, I know… but the point being there is no mention of Tommy Girl and this supposed weekend meeting…. now JUST STOP AND THINK ABOUT IT:

    “Cruise Bungee Jumping With His Daughter” isn’t picked up by any other outlet…. hmmm?… That’s a massive story, especially if you have photo proof…. all we got was an extremely fuzzy pic from a long way away where she looks a year younger and we can’t tell if she has a cast on her arm or not.

    I think we have COB micromanaging Cruises’ suit with Bauer media where they claim he has abandoned his daughter

    …. don’t worry Tom, I have some guys that will prove you’ve been seeing her

    In vaguely related news, I saw the movie Planes this weekend. It features two navy fighter jets… voiced by Anthony Edwards and Val Kilmer.

    • Verve

      Well, at least Travolta wasn’t the wingman named “Goose.”

      Though for some reason I see McDwarf being “Ice Man,” but only the size of a popsicle. He’d be green either for money or envy- your pick. Cruise could play Slider, that would be a laugh.

  • DodoTheLaser

    Not sure what’s this all about, but it features two prominent scientology OT’s.

    You’ve been warned.

    • DeElizabethan

      I watched the short clip. Looks like she lost her phone or some item and said it’s Ok I got it. When it’s apparent she did not. Reckon I’d never believe her again. hahahaha

      • DodoTheLaser

        Yeah, plus the whole pregnancy fixation. She went OT and got pregnant, we already knew that.

        Just really odd “show”. Not sure what’s her point. May be she needs to do Doubt Condition.

        • media_lush

          “…. guess what…. I’m pregnant…. I did it without even trying”

          as Freudian slips go….. heh, heh

          poor girl… someone somehow persuaded her to leave a good high paying job on a soap for this total, total dross…. how the hell do you make money on Youtube without sponsorship or at least million plus hits [with embedded ads].

          • Gregory Nietsky

            i respectfully decline the offer to watch way too creepy and i may get the urge to gouge out eyes with a blunt spoon …. she was told to @media_lush:disqus she needs to bump her head and deal with reality

          • media_lush

            …. they all stick together….. as I’m blocked from most of the celeb scion twitter accounts {ALL of them, Ed} I do find lulz by tweeting the scions/sycophants/totalfuckingidiots who tweet The Hutt with choice shoops/comments from here.

            I give myself bonus points if they tweet to Jabba about the ‘haters’… [double points].

            • Gregory Nietsky

              most lulzy but these morons are irrelevant and there IQ [even after been raised by the woo tech] is not sufficient to think for themselves …. they will keep on keeping on and forking over cash to the dwergenfurher …. having these clows go balls to the wall sci and quit a paying job is awesome …. dont see many $ciloons doing good these days … if there is a product by one of em dont pay for it … if you have to see it torrentz bitchez dry up the river

            • filosofa

              I watched a short amount of this trite, tedious twaddle – never again! (Thank you for the link though DodoTheLazer :P).

              If Krustie thinks that this dross, White Secret, is “Hysterical!!!!!” she must have had a sense-of-humour bypass to go with her IQ bypass and the cult-inflicted walletectomy.

    • filosofa

      I didn’t notice your thoughtful warning till too late. Boyohboy! – am I sorry now…..

  • media_lush

    neither here nor there but I have Curb Your Enthusiasm on in the background [his therapist wearing the thong episode] and there’s a bit I didn’t notice first time round where Larry comes out of his office and sees Richard Lewis [his therapist too.... should note they're both trying to stop seeing him] and explains that he told him he’s happy and no longer needs to see him…. Richard Lewis freaks out at Larry as that what’s he told Larry he was going to say to leave him….. they’re both freaking more and Larry says… I got it, just tell him you’re a scientologist…..

    …. Therapist comes out… and Larry says… ‘tell him about that book Battlestar Galactica*’…..

    ….. so bloody funny

    [* makes so much sense now, lulz]

  • Douglas D. Douglas

    I got all 24 of my votes in for Leah (12 on the land line, 12 on the cell phone). Enjoyed doing this, as she did a really good job.

    So very sorry to hear Mike Rinder’s sad news. So sorry he had to lose his mother twice– once to the CoS and now forever. Glad, though, to see that he is turning this personal tragedy into a resolve to do something good.

    My wife follows Rick Warren on line. This weekend, part of his message struck me as so applicable to the situation going on in the CoS. Paraphrased, it was, “People don’t care about your prosperity; people care about how you handle adversity.” David Miscavige (as always) has it exactly backwards. He seems to think that prosperity, on his terms, is what makes him and the CoS impressive. But it is his horrible handling of adversity (the disconnections, personal attacks, surveillance, heavy-handed responses, etc.) that is really turning people away.

    • ThetaBara

      Leah was very graceful. Her hands were amazing, especially for someone who isn’t a dancer. Hopefully she’ll stick around for weeks!

    • coonellie

      Thanks for the message. I needed the exhortation :).

    • Mooser

      “But it is his horrible handling of adversity (the disconnections,
      personal attacks, surveillance, heavy-handed responses, etc.) that is
      really turning people away.”

      So if Scientology could be more like Rick Warren, the new members would come streaming in? I bet you are right!

      • Douglas D. Douglas

        Well, not like Rick Warren, perhaps. But they could stand to heed his advice.

        (However, I understand Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church just added additional services to handle new members. They now do seven services each weekend.)

    • Bob

      Good quote from Rick Warren. Thanks.

  • Lurkness

    That an organization that conspires to work such unspeakable cruelty upon others, can actually be called a “church” and a “religion” offends language and common decency. Sympathy to Mike, Karen and so many others. THIS is why.

  • sister wendy

    Love the interview with Geir!!!! Thanks AGP and Karen!

  • Whoknew
    • noseinabk

      Good one Who. Is this what little Davey is listening to?

      “Pressure pushing down on me

      Pressing down on you, no man ask for

      Under pressure that burns a building down

      Splits a family in two

      Puts people on streets

      It’s the terror of knowing

      What this world is about

      Watching some good friends

      Screaming, “Let me out!”

      • Whoknew

        There’s that take. And also the ending “This is our last dance, (repeat), this is the sound of ourselves under pressure.” ….The Church seems to be doing it’s last dance…or close to it?

  • Verve

    Barring injuries (of course) I would love to see the tent ripped up from a hurricane. But this year has been oddly quite weather wise. Bummer.

    • Gregory Nietsky

      There so many disgruntled ex members [not the anons looking for lulz] they better do lots of sec-checks for every attendant … who know who will become the next “domestic” terrorist if i was clear water law enforcement id put up road blocks, id checks , spot searches , validate each attendee …. its clear what a danger they are to themselves ….

  • Krew13

    I wonder how many donations Her Royal Governor has made in the last week? Sorry, that should be in the last hour. I imagine she has to be living on instant noodles and second hand clothes because all her money’s going towards clearing the planet.

  • Nevermore

    0943 UK time, and we foreign chaps can still vote for Leah via the FB page! Go for it!

    • filosofa

      Thanks. Already done – Go Leah!

  • Krew13

    Tom Cruise knows! OK?! He knows!!! He knows everything!!!!!! Everything except that he’s a brainwashed fucktard.

    • EnthralledObserver

      It’s kind of funny, in hindsight, that he said “Nicole knows…”, innit? ;)

    • Nevermore

      Please, no, I haven’t had my first dose of painkillers, don’t start me ranting about Tommy Girl and his KNOWING! ARGGGHHHH!!!!!

    • Gregory Nietsky

      Tom knows the psychos chuck knows kung fu ….

      Jenna wants to know if you killed babies …..

      • Krew13

        No, that delightfully brainwashed and talentless bitch actually asked the guy if he’d raped any babies. That’s Sciloonery conditioning straight from Hubbard – “attack attack attack, never defend”.

        • Gregory Nietsky

          and they think they “won” and pointed out the obvious …. pitty there so few arround here id love to have a meal with one …

        • Gregory Nietsky

          I could not give a flying fuck about “shlebs” dont have “tv” at home do grab some shows from time to time …. but ill tell you this real actors with talent dont need $ciloonery

        • Nevermore

          An attack from a moron is thankfully not much to worry about.

          • Gregory Nietsky

            its like watching a insect you amazed at its abilities and flight but when you bored zap it

    • filosofa

      Someone should put that on a t-shirt. But keep it away from Jenna “do you rape babies” Elfman.

      • Gregory Nietsky
        • filosofa

          lol. I know – I saw the video on youtube, but it seems to have disappeared now. $cion interference with free speech, maybe?

          • Gregory Nietsky

            Free speech and freedom of religion is only for the enlightened the rest of us must STFU …

            someone remind them it includes freedom from religion and even squirrelling trademark laws do not apply as the courts cant get involved in promoting them and judging them ….

            oops it bites bitchez … and if you enforce them and step over the line you get a smackdown how you like it now dwergenfuherer

            • filosofa

              *Applause*…you are so right. Looking forward to the day when the Co$ finally dies and all Hubtards “writings” are burned on the braai.

            • Gregory Nietsky

              Ill use flubtards writings to cook my steak hell yeah pull in for a beer and braai any time

            • filosofa

              Cool! I’ll share that beer and braai with you. I lived in Hillbrow for a while back in the early 70′s and the steaks we had there were the finest I’d ever tasted.

            • Gregory Nietsky

              Would not venture into hillbrow/yeoville now its very central african cosmo congo/nigeria/….

              changed lots on the whole for the better ….

            • filosofa

              Is there much of a *spit* $cientology presence in SA nowadays?

            • Gregory Nietsky

              Im in midrand [halfway house] they have a AO paid millions for it up on kyalami hill not sure it was arround till 80′s/90′s [hear say kyalami castle] there is a real piece of work running a school nearby who dates back to the 60′s from st hill era [Sonja Morshead] claims its not scientology [right] there is a Idle Morgue in jhb south [a joke a second] preforia is going idle … fewer now than in your time here certainally

            • filosofa

              The fewer the better, hey?,

            • Gregory Nietsky

              And im all for em going broke let them build there stupid morgues build it but they wont come

              seems like the story is you need gatII to finish the bridge can only be done “ideal” and forget “supahpowerz” if you not ideal …. so all bORGS are going Idle … to keep with the tech …

            • filosofa

              I’m not sure the Co$ is in imminent danger of going broke – Tiny Fists Miscsavage seems to have continued, and even improved on, Hubblowhards record of chiselling the $ from his deluded flock.

              As you say, it appears that the Co$ is past it’s sell-by date when it comes to attracting new rubes. And the court cases that Tony O keeps us so beautifully up-to-date on here in The Bunker are all part of the ever-multipying leaks in the dyke that COB doesn’t have enough fingers to block. Hopefully we’ll all be here to celebrate when the eventual flood comes and washes the “church” away. Stuporpowerz won’t help him then.

            • Gregory Nietsky

              No refering to the “members” if they go broke the bORG dies as has happened all over

            • filosofa

              Indeed it has. So tragic and terribly sad. The “church” has destroyed so many lives.

    • Sydjazz

      I want the xenu is my homeboy shirt and wear it walking around the nearest co$.

  • Gregory Nietsky

    if i had a world wide religion with “Millions” of adherents that was growing exponentially it seems 10millon is the latest misery of truth figure.

    i would expect the following 20% will be long term stable members with a foundation as its growing exponentially there will be more “babies” . [clear]

    there will be 20% starting out on the foundations younger converts … [pre-clear]
    20% will be recent converts / undecided
    20% will be intrested
    20% will be fresh meat

    so 20% will be “on the bridge” applying the bell curve to this 80% of these will be “satisfied or take slow pace”

    the remainder will be on 2 sides those wanting to go all the way 10% and those activly studding …

    so we should have 2% on OT…. 200k 200k on advanced grades and a further 1.6M clear 2M clear or above
    we know that there have only been a maximum of 50k clear putting the maximum membership @ 250k world wide based on this model …

    now they want 10k to come for supahpowerz opening that will be 0.1% of claimed membership however its 20% of all clears ever made. this is highly unlikely and 4% of maximum possible membership.
    the tent seems to hold a lot less than 10k ….

    a sports team with 10M supporters worldwide having a match on home soil will easily sell out a stadium of 100k+
    scientology is a piss widdy insignificant clusterfuck …

    dwergenfuherer has to fake a event as been 10k when at most its 3k imagine man united at old trafford playing real madrid only pulling 3000 to the stadium ….

    • Jimmy Threetimes

      A tent full of “clears” is still an empty tent.

        Do transparent blowup audience count as clear ?

        “After Tom Cruise made a disastrous decision to be more public with his involvement in Scientology in 2005″….FTR: He actually made “a disastrous decision to be more public” back in the late 80′s…early 90′s. I was at “Flag” in Clearwater, FL at the time and we were “ordered” to this event. We had *heard* for some time that “Tom Cruise is “in”, but “Don’t say *a* word”. Ok. Suddenly out came TC…announcing “I AM a $cientologist and IF I can get trained up to Class 4, YOU CAN TOO”. (Most of us at the event already were, but hey…). Even then, each of us being way “in”, we all walked out and said one thing: “Someone sure handled him!” Absolutely he has escalated his pitching for this Cult in 2005, which has not added points for him, except with “Dave”. “Super Power” “Golden Age of Crap 2″===All Super Cons. To lurkers: BAIL WHILE U STILL CAN, I am NOT kidding. Love to Tony and all here :) <3 Tory/Magoo

  • Jeb Burton

    I didnt realize the outcome of Dancing with B list stars could determine the fate of Scientology. After reading comments here, some people have apparently voted 20 times, and from what I understand, if she wins, it could be finally be what brings the cult down. But of course, that means if she loses, it means that DM is a great religious figure who must be admired and respected. Please win Leah, or scientology will take over the world. No pressure on you. Just dance your ass off.

    • Seannie5

      nobody said that, it’s because the more Leah’s face is out there reminding people that she left the cult and was disconnected from her friends then the more troublesome it is for Sci.
      Awareness is good. OK?

    • Gregory Nietsky

      She is showing she is out there and not affected by disconnects that is ++ good however equating a win on the show to death of Co$ is superstition i likened it two uteams both “praying” to win whoever wins has the best god ?? ok so they the same god the looser is a sinner ??? nope that is ridiculous ….

      let Co$ fall on facts and its own sword ….

    • Jimmy Threetimes

      You’re the only one who assumed that DWTS has anything to do with directly challenging Scientology. Most people just voted in support of Leah. But if she stays alive longer, more people will talk about her and so more may hear her story. It’s an indirect slap in the face to Scientology, if anything.

    • Mooser

      “I didnt realize the outcome of Dancing with B list stars could determine the fate of Scientology.”

      First of all, I admire you for admitting your shortcomings. And second of all, now you know. Dance, Leah, dance! Dance like the destruction of an evil cult depended on every swing of your hips, and every hootchie of your kootchie! (It may be the other way round, not sure)

    lol poor Tom never gets a break! Iam at work and two residents are up in the movie room browsing Netflix for tonights movie. I happened to glance and saw “Days of Thunder” on the suggestion picks. I say, “You guys dont want to watch Tom Cruise in Days of Thunder!?” They both looked at me (I said it very sarcastically) and one laughed while the other said, “I used to like his movies. Then he went all crazy. He isnt that good of an actor!” I think they decided to watch something with Kevin Sorbo!
