Reason Rally 2016 in Washington DC: The Underground Bunker wants to see you there!


[“Repent heretics or be devoured by Almighty Cthulhu” — from Reason Rally 2012]

We had so much fun at the Reason Rally in 2012 we had already planned on going again this year. But then, the organizers were kind enough to ask us if we’d give the event a plug. Why sure!

If you have Saturday, June 4 free and can be in Washington DC, you should come to the Lincoln Memorial and hear speakers like Johnny Depp, Bill Nye, Carolyn Porco, Penn Jillette, and James Randi.

We’ll be hanging around, hoping it doesn’t rain this time, and maybe we’ll have a few books with us to sign, if you still need one. OK, so here’s our plug. Please share it far and wide…




Chris Shelton sec checks his mom

Says Chris about interrogating his own mom: “Last week I went out to California and my Mom agreed to be on video with me to talk about Scientology. So this is the first of a 4-part series where my Mom and I discuss Scientology, our history with it and what happened to her and us through the years. The first two parts go over her story and some questions showing the differences and similarities between Scientology back in the 1970s versus how it is now (such as how ethics has gotten more harsh, etc). By Part 3, we will be going heavily into how she handled me while I was in to NOT disconnect from her and we have a very frank discussion about what she could have done through the years that might have helped me get out earlier.”
