No longer a scientologist.
I don't believe everything I read on the Internet.
I do believe everything I write.
I think Melbourne D&F should succeed from the Corporate COS! Really go all the way, really show some big balls!
Aaaahhh ... those three boys are precious. The adults ... naaahh.
(Those three guys remind me of the three unhappy office workers in that movie, "Office Space.")
BTW, you GOTTA catch the guy in white shorts at 2:18. He's ... well, let me just say he's something special. LOL!

It is DM's response to the whole "Australia's Child Labor Camp" Flap.
Shane Kelsey who? Check this happy Scientology kids out!!! (Justin Bieber hair, lovely blue eyes and plenty of adorable, silly, yet on-purpose rapping. Here, haters!) Handled. Not.

Except they are Not having fun. In the background, there are white boards with $$$$ figures, there are plaques unveiled with the key word Contributors, there are folders representing private confessional statements that are used to coerce that $$ out of already broke members, there are sales charts.
These are people who are supporting fraud (it is okay to lie on your loan or refinance application, or the family/friend you are borrowing from about your true purpose and your actual financial condition). These are the people who may be involved in coercion, or a number of abuses and crimes, but are all complicit in obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting and harboring criminals, by not reporting crimes and abuses to the police.
These are the people who believe the end justifes the means at any cost and there is no price too high. These are people who will throw out their own mother or child if they so much as have a thought that is not scientology approved.
No. These people are not having any fun at all, but they are faking it in hopes of manipulating their few remaining public into joining them in not having any fun at all.
But I will say I wasn't laughing. That's because those rappers appear very young so I just find it sad and despicable.LeeAnne Clark 9 hours ago in reply to Heather Grace
I don't see this as "fun" at all. I see it as a desperate attempt to APPEAR to be having fun, so that they can scam more money out of more deluded, brainwashed cult members. I see it as victims who are terrified of not making their numbers, feeling like they have to do ANYTHING to crank those numbers up, pathetically trying to appear cool, hip and fun, desperately hoping it will work to manipulate more people into shelling out more dough, so they won't be punished for missing their goals.
It's sad, pathetic and disgusting.JustCallMeMary 10 hours ago in reply to Heather Grace
I see your point. Especially because being on staff is rarely a fun thing. I bet these kids put their heart into making this. It may be the last bit of fun they have for years to come. My only disagreement is the crotch grabbing. which I commented on elsewherescnethics 11 hours ago
Wow - this supports what Debbie Cook alleged in her email. I gotta say as a long-time scientologist it is stunning to see a video about the Birthday Game, where there isn't a single image of students on course or auditors (counselors) setting up for a session. And an unveiling of "Contributors"? WTF?
It's a powerful illustration of how cults work. Everyone bends to the ideas of the person at the top, and Miscavige has managed to completely transform the culture, despite going against the doctrine the cult members are supposed to adhere to.wannabeclear 12 hours ago
Is it just me or do those boys in the first video look like they could be Mormon missionaries? Ignore the Co$ signage, and look at their youth and utter whiteness along with the outfits -- short sleeve dress shirts, ties and dark pants -- the only thing missing is name tags that say "Elder Smith" on them. Yikes!

This video is wrong on so many levels.
Another foot bullet, indeed.
And excellent for cringy lulz.
And the comments section as good as always! lol

Basically, I have a crash on all of you people.
In 10 years time when these poor kids have grown up and are trying to work in the real world they are going to seriously regret making total fools of themselves for Scientology.
