    Re: The Homeless Terror

    It is obvious to anyone who isn't in fault finding mode. Had someone else titled a thread the same, the reactions would have been different.

    Re: I went to church on Sunday

    I think that being good, fair or decent isn't a prereq for being a church. There can be bad churches.

    But, well, shit, CofS is certainly a cult and they're run like an MLM.

    It would probably...
  4. Re: Does Scientology create susceptibility to stress?

    CofS only cares about what it can get out of people and to continually do that, it has to control them so they don't get away.

    Hubbard seems to have believed in a lot of his own theories, ideas...
  5. Re: Mark 'Marty' Rathbun: Standard Scientology

    I see it as just another path. I mean, I think a number of paths (maybe all?) are quite limited but, hey, finding and hearing the divine spirit is not easy. If it makes them feel better and provides...

    Re: The Homeless Terror

    I appreciate the fact that Tom's seeming to witness and understand how hypocritical CofS is and is telling us about it. Didn't most exes start out believing the lies then later saying, ohhhh....wait...
  7. Re: Does Scientology create susceptibility to stress?

    Well, J and I were tech terminals who did just that. But it was a true believer thing.

    I think we can prolly agree that it's about control. Like, ok, a student or staffer can call in sick, but...

    Re: The Homeless Terror

    Well, I know the cult hates anyone they think is downstat, and they love money, but I have seen them nail supposed up stats to the wall.

    In my experience and what I've seen, they're nice to the...

    It does make the person ineligible for S.O., but does it really also make them ineligible for auditing?

    Re: Religious expression?

    Yes, and there's some people who really need to understand this. One does not leave a repressive cult then run around trying to create, impose then enforce similar rules on people in another venue.
  13. Re: Scientology Sunday Service - What Goes On?

    It's kind of PR. One of the things, as I recall, is group processing which struck me as reminiscent of locationals.

    Re: On Death

    There are only two bad things about death. One is mainly the loss that friends and other loved ones feel. And the other is any pain the person goes through.

    In my experience, when people are upset...

    Re: The Dream Team

    See? I clicked disagree on this one. But it isn't upsetting or anything. And it's interesting, so I also clicked like.

    Our politics are obviously dissimilar but that's ok.

    Re: The Homeless Terror

  18. Re: Does Scientology create susceptibility to stress?

    Being a member, with the pressures and the lies and the arbitraries (and all the 180 degree turns they seem to do with their own writings) definitely creates stress.

    Re: Jaimie DeWolf to pen a book on the cult

    The very best way to know if Jamie DeWolf's book is any good is to get a copy (once it comes out) and read it. In fact, it's the only way.

    Re: The Homeless Terror

    When you say they are feared as agents of the psyches- you mean that's what the CofSers are saying?

    If so, well,

    Oh.My.God.
  23. Re: Mark 'Marty' Rathbun: Why Scientologists Cannot Be Trusted

    I think there are less than, say 6 years ago. But that the situation is that we've lately been seeing some new ones, and this attracts attention. It gets noticed.
