Calling all Atheist’s to get out and Support The Church of Scientology!
It hasn’t been a good few months for the followers of b-grade sci-fi writer L.Ron Hubbard.
First a French Court found The Church of Scientology had defrauded its members and this week across the Tasman we have a South Australian MP calling for an enquiry in Canberra.
The Australian Senator Xenophon (no he's not a distant relation to the evil space-overlord) said he had received correspondence from former members of Scientology implicated the organisation in a range of crimes, including forced imprisonment, coerced abortions, embezzlement of church funds, physical violence, intimidation and blackmail.
Then Scientology's chief spokesman, Tommy Davis (evidently Tom seems a popular name for those who believe in Alien occupations of earth and the liberal use of very large numbers) stormed out of a television interview with Martin Bashir in a rage befitting a person of a far lower operating level [refer You-Tube video above]
The thetans must well and truly be enveloping the COS hierarchy producing itchy-welts that won’t go away – even with the most thorough auditing and creams.
And I for one feel sorry for them!
That’s right I feel sorry for The Church of Scientology.
The major thing that COS does wrong and pisses the public-off - is to charge above market rates for their load of superstition.
The ‘Johnny come lately’ COS also has the audacity to believe in invisible alien life forms as opposed to the traditional invisible deities worshipped for millennia – this too brings it’s detractors.
Having a f*ck-knuckle like Tom Cruise as a poster boy & a propensity to act like the East German Secret-Service can’t have helped their cause either.
So if the media and state-authorities around the globe are going to target COS and portray them as a bogus religion - we must place the same burden of proof on all their competitors.
The Islamic religion believes their messiah split the moon in two.
The Christian religion believes the earth was made in six days.
Are these any more credible propositions than Xenu?
As I have just stated what pisses the public off (atheists and theists alike) is the way they function and not their actual beliefs – which are a bunch of expensive crap as opposed to the discounted version available at other corner churches - except of course Destiny up-in Auckland.
My message to COS – believe you me they troll the internet looking for detractors and insignificant dissertations such as this - is to start offering a 2 for 1 discount and run sale to coincide with that false-holiday the other pretenders call Christmas.
PS: On the right of this blog are the results of the recent month long poll I ran to find-out the weirdest religion. Guess who won?
