Thread: Setting a good example.

    Yes, I like these threads too for much the same reasons. It is very interesting when you read and feel the seriousness with which these people need to communicate.

    It feels like a very distant echo now of my scio past ... I can sit here and read this type of thread and let it reverberate around me, and it has no effect whatsoever other than a kind of slightly embarrassed curiosity ... almost like viewing an injured alien being, that is in its death throes but is still trying to assert who is "really in control here" ... as it is clearly fading away.



    I know that sounds melodramatic but that is how I view scientologists these days, they are like actors in an old black and white movie that I once knew the script to word for word, and even though technology has moved on (a lot) they are still reading, ever so seriously, from the very same battered and tattered handwritten dialogue and apparently are completely unaware of the audience quietly cringing ... for them.

    Ah well.

    Back to the real world.





    The birds they sang, at the break of day
    Start again, I seemed to hear them say
    Do not dwell on what has passed away
    or what is yet to be ...

    These posts where Scientologists come on here and threaten people and run all their insanity on exes are highly therapeutic for people to see. Others, who have never been in the cult, get to see the threats and the creepy attempts at coercion and thought control that the Church of Scientology engages in.

    Scientology's fascistic totalitarianism can not act within the light of a truly free environment. The Internet is proof of that.

    So I like threads like this.

    I wish they would send more of them out to "handle" us.

    It would be their undoing.

    And they know it.

    You are very wise Alanzo - I agree whole heartedly.
    Sweet memories
    I never thought it would be like this
    Reminding me
    Just how close I came to missing
    I know that
    This is the way for me to go
    You'll be there
    When you know what I know
    And I know...

    from x_x> "Scientology must duplicate the societies it operates in."
    Omg! Just like in 'The Fly', the resulting mutant.... oh shi...

    Really now, ol' windbag Rotten Ronny,(woman-beating, drug addicted, sociopathic liar that he was), wasn't trying to integrate his mess with 'societies', he wanted to create his own world where he was 'The Soopreem Roolah' and all were his willing slaves, in other words~ infiltrate to alter and control.
    'Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.'

    For offended Scientologists reading this blasphemy about L. Ron Hubbard---my apologies for talking about real life without lying to you, like Scientology, with goo-goo theta-talk. I know you don't have a floating needle right now. You're not supposed to.

    Beauty, finally some posters that see things the same way as me.

    I do like watching him squirm, changing the meanings of what we say to set up straw men it's his only hope of winning a debate, apart from quoting source.

    The tactic is so obvious to all but him.
