Scientology’s center specializing in auditing your infant is back open in Florida!

Great news, everyone. Now that Florida has begun reopening businesses, you can now take your infant or toddler down to the Mace-Kingsley center for some Scientology auditing!

Over the years, we’ve brought you various fliers and mailers with Mace-Kingsley advertising (see below), and now we have a video from M-K’s executive director (E.D.), Marcy Sargeant, alerting Scientology parents so they can start making appointments for their little ones.

In Scientology, after all, “children” are really trillion-year-old thetans in small packages who are the products of countless previous lives and it’s really only an illusion that they have any connection to you at all. And with your messed-up parenting skills, you keep “restimulating” traumatic incidents from your kid’s prior lives on other planets and stuff, and wow, that’s gotta be stressful for junior!

So bring that baby on in for some standard Scientology child abuse at sky-high prices! Is this a great country or what!



Hi, everybody. This is Marcy from Mace-Kingsley. I’m the ED, and I just want to give you a little bit of Source today and remind you that kids do need auditing. They’re beings in small bodies with reactive minds and gosh, if we aren’t the ones that restimulate them, most of the time, yikes. So, let’s do something about it. Mace-Kingsley’s now open, yeehaw! And there are auditors all around the world that we have apprenticed that are ready to deliver. So, call and schedule today. All right, now this is from the Scientology Handbook, children chapter, and here’s what it says: “Creating Tomorrow’s Society. Working with children can be a fascinating adventure. The person who applies insight and patience along with his skill in applying the knowledge and techniques laid out in this booklet will be rewarded by seeing children progress to become cooperative, healthy members of the society. The task may seem impossibe and heartbreaking at times. But in the end there will be an unequaled sense of accomplishment of having done something really worthwhile for the advancement of future generations.” So, let’s do it. All right, we have faith in you. Take care.

“As far as publicity is concerned the general public has been slammed around about Dianetics and they don’t know whether Dianetics is a cough drop or a new cult down in Arizona. Nobody really knows very much about it. Out in the general public they ask you if it is a cult, or if it is this or if it is that. I suddenly woke up to the fact that I was under-evaluating it. I was trying to tell people ‘Well, this is sort of a psychotherapy and it does this and that,’ rather apologetically. And I said to somebody bluntly the other day, ‘Why, Dianetics is the science of handling life; you know, handling life forces!’ They looked at me and blinked and I said, ‘Yes, you know, a fellow starts downhill and starts down toward death. Well, Dianetics picks him back up again.’ They went away in a trance! Actually, isn’t that what we are doing? The new theta-MEST theory makes that so apparent, and the results you get follow in so closely that, actually, we are doing just that.” — L. Ron Hubbard, May 15, 1951


Overheard in the FreeZone

“Fifth day on OT IX. There is like a ‘learning experience’ of life in the MEST. Before when I made a postulate, I don’t know how it happened, if it happened at all. I realize now that I was much less conscious. Now I make a postulate and I feel the static energy blossom, as if I am aligning the MEST to get my postulate. It is a conscious feeling. It might be right in my Universe, but no, the thing is happening in the MEST.”

“Eva Gabor was awesome in Green Acres, which was one of the most underrated, surrealist shows of all time. It’s worthy of Lynch or Buñuel.”
