Message to Scientology

Hello, Scientology. We are Anonymous. Over the years, we have been watching you. Your campaigns of misinformation; suppression of dissent; your litigious nature, all of these things have caught our eye. With the leakage of your latest propaganda video into mainstream circulation, the extent of your malign influence over those who trust you, who call you leader, has been made clear to us. Anonymous has therefore decided that your organization should be destroyed. For the good of your followers, for the good of mankind–for the laughs–we shall expel you from the Internet and systematically dismantle the Church of Scientology in its present form. We acknowledge you as a serious opponent, and we are prepared for a long, long campaign. You will not prevail forever against the angry masses of the body politic. Your methods, hypocrisy, and the artlessness of your organization have sounded its death knell. You cannot hide; we are everywhere. We cannot die; we are forever. We’re getting bigger every day–and solely by the force of our ideas, malicious and hostile as they often are. If you want another name for your opponent, then call us Legion, for we are many. Yet for all that we are not as monstrous as you are; still our methods are a parallel to your own. Doubtless you will use the Anon’s actions as an example of the persecution you have so long warned your followers would come; this is acceptable. In fact, it is encouraged. We are your SPs. Gradually as we merge our pulse

the joys of serindipitous symbolism: here we have the ‘o’ represented by a hole, indicative of the money pit that is the church of scientology, both for its members and those people the church chooses to sue (and they are legion). it might be easier to compile a list of entities the cult has not dragged into court under the flimsiest of circumstances, but one of my favourite attempts they made was on a number of canadian libraries for stocking the mind benders (link goes to the full book released on the internet by the author via the cult awareness network) by cyril vosper. the libraries quite rightly refused to remove the books, the courts backed them up, and many editions were then stolen from the shelves. since copies are scarce, read the linked version or borrow my paperback (provided you’re not a scientologist).

i do have something akin to fondness for scientology, partly because the religion is so transparently a fiction. i also like encountering adherents of other faiths who use it as a whipping post and shout about it being nonsense as it then allows me to comment on the nonsense inherent in all religions, including that particular one of the complaintant, using the very arguments just presented against scientology. for a more rational, detailed breakdown of the nuances of scientology, click here.

Scientology vs Anonymous

The Internet-based group “Anonymous” has released statements on YouTube and via a press release, outlining what they call a “War on Scientology”. Church of Scientology related websites, such as religiousfreedomwatch.org have been removed due to a suspected distributed denial-of-service-attack (DDoS) by a group calling themselves “Anonymous”. On Friday, the same group allegedly brought down Scientology’s main website, scientology.org, which was available sporadically throughout the weekend. Several websites relating to the Church of Scientology have been slowed down, brought to a complete halt or seemingly removed from the Internet completely in an attack which seems to be continuous. The scientology.org site was back online briefly on Monday, and is currently loading slowly.

Scientology: Jason Beghe Interview Part 12 of 17

Actor Jason Beghe is the first celebrity Scientologist to sit down and publicly talk about his experiences after leaving the group. The full interview will be out soon. Jason Beghe (born March 12 1960) is an American film and television actor. As a young man he attended the Collegiate School in New York City, where he became best friends with John F. Kennedy, Jr. and David Duchovny. He graduated from Pomona College in 1982. Beghe starred in the 1988 George Romero film, Monkey Shines: An Experiment In Fear, and his portrayal of a quadriplegic in the film was positively received. He appeared as a police officer in the film, Thelma & Louise, and played Demi Moore’s love interest in, GI Jane. Beghe starred opposite Moira Kelly in the television series “To Have & to Hold”, and has had recurring roles on Picket Fences, Melrose Place, and Chicago Hope. He has also appeared on Numb3rs, CSI: NY, Everwood, Criminal Minds, Veronica Mars, and Cane. He began taking Scientology courses in 1994, and later appeared in a Church of Scientology advertising campaign and promotional videos. According to Beghe, Church of Scientology Leader, David Miscavige, called him “the poster boy for Scientology”. Beghe left Scientology in April 2008 and immediately began speaking out publicly against it. He contacted Andreas Heldal-Lund of the organization Operation Clambake, who referred him to Scientology critic Mark Bunker (of Xenu.TV). Bunker helped Beghe upload an interview to You Tube in which he

New Scientology Commercial: “You”

One of three new 60-second TV commercials from the Church of Scientology, called “You.” “You are not your name. Youre not your job. Youre not the clothes you wear or the neighborhood you live in. Youre not your fears your failures or your past. You are hope. You are imagination. You are the power to change to create and to grow. You are a spirit that will never die. And no matter how beaten down, you will rise again.” www.scientology.org – Scientology Video — You Scientology KNOW YOURSELF, KNOW LIFE
