Earlier, Dulloldfart invited me to improve upon the cult's latest really crappy press release. I couldn't spare the time to do so, but mostly I couldn't imagine any reward in doing so.
Mostly, what I find appalling about such "public relations" efforts the cult indulges in of late is that the scribbler(s) of such releases are so clueless they don't realize their little behavior rules have absolutely zero relevance or enforceability outside the walls of the physical and mental prison which is the Church of Scientology, e.g.:
* You can't call yourself a Scientologist.
* You can't enter a public building.
* You can't talk to your family members -- or only minimally. (Meaning at Christmas, but not Thanksgiving? On Valentine's, but not St. Patrick's Day?)
* We won't allow your family members to have any contact with you.
The list goes on, but I won't.
When ravings like this are committed to print and released for broad public consumption, the world sees the cult for the club of idiots it is.
And here's the truly offensive part of it, for me: The cult doesn't even have the cultural self-awareness to appreciate that what they've just published sounds like the ravings of a cult. They are now so stupid I am having a hard time believing they've gotten that stupid.
How do you argue or debate or discuss these issues with people who are so unaware!?
