    Thankyou VERY much for doing that. I am sure it did help people these long years, hopefully more than we will ever know. At last something concrete is being done about it now. :thumbsup:

    I hope you stick around and join in the discussions too. :)

    Fair enough. Does the promo also say, "Due to our unprecedented expansion...."? :)

    Or for how long?

    And everybody complies, too, don't they?

    See? That proves it.

    Being in the Church of Scientology is like being in a Naked Gun movie.

    From their website. Prophetic?

    There is enough lulz on this page to keep anonymous busy for months.

    Note they say "Until the end of May" to get some "Buy Now!" potential out of it. Then they will say, "Due to overwhelming demand, now extended until the end of June!!!" And so on.

    Bigger BTs have smaller BTs
    Upon their backs to bite 'em
    And smaller BTs have lesser BTs
    And the SO ad infinitum

    Or something.

    That was really cringworthy, yuk! I used to love Tom Cruise, but when I woke up, I saw him in a different light completely. It wasn't because he's still a scientologist, but you can see the mask, it's just not real. I can't imagine how he's going to cope when he finds out it's a con and his mate McSavage runs into hiding like his predessesor did. He's possibly got all his dosh stashed in some off-shore account where no one will ever find it. It just prooves how much respect they have for human life when they knew about this asbestos situation all these years ago and did nothing about it. It's sick. They should be held accountable for this, the proof they knew it was there was in Lawrences write up, something HAS to be done this time.

    Scientology Yacht Sealed and Docked in Curacao

    Scientology Yacht Sealed and Docked in Curacao

    Scientology's "cruise ship", the Freewinds has been sealed and docked by officials in Curacao. It is known that all Scientology members who have reached higher OT levels have spent some time on the yacht, and have thus been exposed to the carcinogen. Both local and Nederlands-based investigators and government officials are investigating.

    An affidavit filed in 2001 by Lawrence Woodcraft, a former Scientologist and trained architect, claims that Woodcraft encountered the fibrous minerals while working on the ship in 1987, and promptly informed Scientology leaders. For over 21 years, Scientology has knowingly exposed passengers to what is generally considered the most lethal form of asbestos. The National Toxicology Program classifies asbestos as a known human carcinogen. The EPA has also classified asbestos as a human carcinogen. The use of asbestos in new construction projects has been banned for health and safety reasons in many developed countries, including all 27 member states of the European Union, Australia, Japan, and New Zealand.

    The Daily Herald, which is based in Philipsburg, St. Maarten, reports:

    "During refurbishing and reparatory work, which involved removing the ceiling and panelling on cruise ship Freewinds, blue asbestos was released and ended up in the ventilation system. Freewinds' captain did not report this when it's own personnel were working on the ship on the Mathey warf in Otrobanda. The Curacao Drydock Company (CDM), where the ship was taken for reparatory work on the hull, heard from the surveyor that there may be asbestos on the ship. The captain acknowledged the incident and said that after the incident Freewinds had some investigation done. Keeping the incident quiet became more noticeable when it turned out that the 40-year-old ship contatined blue asbestos.

    The question is whether or not the blue asbestos dust, which can cause cancer, can be removed from the ship. The CDM has stopped all work on the ship. The ship was sealed and isolated and experts will investigate and measure the presence of asbestos dust in the hull and surrounding areas. Commissioners Eugene Rhuggenaath (Economic Affairs) and Humphrey Davelaar (Public Health) said on Friday.

    CDM interim director Frank Esser, deputy head of the Department of Labour Affairs Christiene van der Biezen were accompanied by two inspectors and head of the health Department Tico Ras. Samples taken from the panelling last week by inspectors that were sent to the Netherlands showed that they contained significant amounts of blue asbestos. After an extraordinary meeting, the Executive Council decided to inform the public in general about the incident to avoid remours and panic.
    The CDM personnel were also informed via the media because it was impossible to gather all the workers Friday evening to personally give them the information."

    If you have been exposed, go to your family MD and tell them that you know that you have been exposed to blue asbestos. At a minimum, a lung series is in order. In general, anyone exposed is now in the high risk group for cancer. In the US, the American Cancer Society also performs screening tests. More information can be found at American Cancer Society :: Information and Resources for Cancer: Breast, Colon, Prostate, Lung and Other Forms. Support and resources for those diagnosed can be found here: Support for Mesothelioma Patients

    For the past three months, Scientology's long-time critics, including Mr. Woodcraft, have been joined by the loosely-affiliated group of internet activists known as Anonymous. While Anonymous has no spokespersons, one person confirmed to be part of the "group" had the following to say in response to this news:

    "While we believe every person has the right to hold whatever beliefs they prefer, that right does not grant Scientology freedom to knowingly expose thousands of people to extremely dangerous substances without informing them of the danger."

    Thousands world-wide have taken their protests to the street on a monthly basis. The next protest is scheduled for May 10.
