Sunday Funnies: The desperation in Scientology fliers is getting worse. Much worse.

GillDetailIt’s that time of the week again, when we share with you some of the great Scientology mailers and fliers that were forwarded to us by our worldwide tipsters.

You’ll find some of our comments a bit less cheery this week. We can’t help it. These Scientology fliers are getting so desperate, it’s really becoming embarrassing.

First up, a report from Scientology’s wuss. Er, rather, WUS. Which stands for Western United States. Which is a continent, by Scientology reckoning.

Rarely has the desperation been spelled out so plainly in a flier like this. Read that step-by-step guide for how to cajole your fellow Scientologist into attending events where they’re just going to be hit up again for large donations. Doesn’t really say much for the persuasive power of Scientology itself, does it?

Is Erika really going to discuss Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health? Even the parts about women giving their fetuses traumatic memories by spending too long on the crapper? Or how Dianetic auditing always seems to bring up associations with silent film star Theda Bara? or that homosexuality is a “perversion”?


Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder pointed out this letter from Valley majority whip Quinn Taufer. He reveals that after all of the crazy stupid fundraising parties put on by Her Royal Bartness, the Valley Ideal Org project is still more than ELEVEN MILLION DOLLARS from its goal. For that dump? You have to be kidding.


Party with the Wilsons, and find out how the Valley fundraising is finally going to get finished while chowing down on jerk chicken? Now that sounds like a theta time.

Lisa has shot up three levels of awesome. But how’s her daughter doing?

Come on, Kiwis, just another $1.2 mil for earthquake-proofing! You can do it!

Hey, also, how did Alanzo get his name on this flier?


The Gills are OT VIII and yet their testimonial may be the least inspiring we’ve ever read. How about a little effort, OTees?


Bailey must be seriously trolling with this account of how he joined staff. As if.


The last few Scientologists who actually opened their e-mails from the church and attended a meeting on the Scientology barge are going to tell the Valley idiots how to get their underfunded, way overdue new building renovated, and just like that, Los Angeles is the Scientology capital of the world! Well, if you say so.
