Court magician? Scientology attorney can now affect matter with thought, levitate, read minds

Your proprietor is under the weather, but before the cats quarantine us in the Bunker’s airlock, we wanted to make a brief note about a remarkable photograph that was sent to us by one of our great tipsters.

It’s from the new issue of Scientology’s Freewinds magazine, which is intended to entice Scientologists to spend a lot of money to come to the church’s private cruise ship and finish their “Bridge to Total Freedom” by attesting to “OT 8.”

This is the auditing level that all Scientologists are trying to attain, which bestows legendary “Operating Thetan” status on the long-suffering church member, who may have spent many years and anywhere between $500,000 and $2 million in course costs, auditing intensives, accommodations, and lots of donations along the way. But it’s all worth it: At OT 8, the superhuman powers every Scientologist is chasing finally arrive. After finishing the level, you should be able to leave your body at will with full perception, affect matter just with your thoughts, and be able to “mock up” a new reality — literally create miraculous effects simply by thinking of them.

For some reason, no Scientologist has ever demonstrated these powers. But that’s supposedly part of the game.


Anyway, we were very intrigued to see that one of the most recent OT 8 graduates is none other than Scientology lawyer Kendrick Moxon.

Moxon is a very longtime and loyal soldier for Scientology whose work goes back to the Guardian’s Office days of the Snow White Program. In fact, the government named Moxon an unindicted co-conspirator when eleven top Scientology officials were sent to prison after a 1977 raid revealed that Scientology was carrying out the largest domestic infiltration of the US government in its history.

Since then, he’s been a loyal mule for low-level litigation, involved in all kinds of cases (including the notorious Jason Scott affair that ended up destroying the Cult Awareness Network). And he and his wife Carla Moxon — another Snow White unindicted co-conspirator — are well known here in the Bunker for Carla’s claims that they used their Scientology powers to save Earth from an alien invasion. Or something.

Anyway, we couldn’t help wondering. If Kendrick Moxon is OT 8 and can, according to L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology, perform miracles, what would stop him, for example, from going exterior and then sitting invisible and undetected while he listened in to an attorney-client conversation in litigation against the church?

Wouldn’t that be a problem for the court? And shouldn’t any party facing Moxon in litigation require him to swear to whether he has those powers or not? And if he admits that he does not, wouldn’t a sworn declaration that there are no OT powers be interesting?

We asked attorney Scott Pilutik that question, but he threw water on it. “I’d think he’d have an easy enough time batting that away and would probably file a complaint to the bar that the complaining lawyer was a bigot.”

Well, that’s no fun.

We also asked Mike Rinder for his thoughts on Moxon, the loyal soldier, finally reaching the top of the Bridge.

“He is the prototypical fundamentalist Scientologist. His entire life is consumed by Scientology. He works for the church. His wife works (or used to) at Delphi. His son is in the Sea Organization. He lives, literally, at the will of Scientology and enjoys the status he gains from this.”

And now he’s an Operating Thetan. Well, good for him. (And now he, like the rest, must realize that he’s been taken for a ride.)

We will now retreat to our sick room, but we are looking forward to your thoughts about a Scientology attorney having godlike abilities.


Make your plans now!
