    Are you, Alanzo, reissuing this, or did TIME? It looks like you are. Nothing wrong with that--I'm just trying to get the facts straight.

    Go there and you'll see "Cover Story: Scientology The Thriving Cult of Greed and Power" on Time's website with today's date on it.

    It appears that they re-issued it. Like I said in the title of this thread.

    Apologies. I only saw the original date. Didn't lift my eyes up enough to the top of the screen.

    I understand. You're English. Facts matter to you.

    Americans just want to feel good.

    Maybe that's why Scn was always more popular in the States than in the UK? :D

    It's because the Cabbage and Potato Eaters can't afford it!

    Amazing stuff!

    All the suppression heaped upon the original reformers and their attempts to reform the Cof$ is being replayed.

    I might still get to tell the story of the Mission Holders, the Orgs, the GO's, and the SO staff of that times fight to correct things. :)

    When you go to Time.com, no such page appears. However, if you do a search on "scientology", you get the page as it appears in the link. So, Time has not "re-issued" this story.

    You're right.

    On their Home page, it is presently 3rd on their list of "Most Popular" stories.

    I'm too causative to have to read.

    And anyway, being so high on the ESMB Bridge to Total Status, sometimes the physical universe gets thin and wispy for me. It tends to as-is if I look directly at it too hard without any distortions or lies.

    Uh, the physical Universe is composed of lies.

    The sad part is that the story can be reissued and it is just as true now as then not much has changed the cult lives on taking people's last dime causing suicides and wrecking peoples lives .The good thing is now the cult is not thriving and in fact seems near the end I for one won't miss it:no:
