    :) I'll settle for a clear bracelet too! Just stuff I find interesting. But Passport is #1 on my list.

    I think a Clear bracelet might be a tiny bit more achievable. We've had people post about them before.

    Yeah my guess was that less people would be willing to part with a passport because it is more personal, has a name on it, etc...but one can always hope. I did search around and saw that some users threw theirs in the trash because they wanted to get rid of all ScN related junk, so that would be the type of person I need to find. That said I think the sample size of people who were given a passport worldwide is probably very tiny. A man can dream.

    Passports are probably hard to find because the orgs usually kept them, not the person.

    Yes, that was CofS human trafficking (a trap).

    I wasn't talking about real passports, but the "Bridge" passports.

    But yes, you are right.

    I'd almost forgotten those silly things. I think I still have one, but it would take some digging to find it.

    I remember when those came out.

    Big Event at the Shrine in LA.....and all the hoopla to create this "new scientology must have...."

    I thought to myself....what utter bull shit. ( I'd had a real passport my entire life....and traveled all over the world, several times.)

    Its funny that one could have extrapolated from that scientology passport promotion....that the Cult was something to get the hell out of....if they did continual stupid things like the "passport...."

    But...it just didn't occur to me at the time.

    Of course...to me, it really painted the Exec Strata in a bad light....that they would think up such a stupid project/promotion.

    It was like the Exec Strata would do anything to get a few bucks out of the public.

    Looking back on it.....I bet that they didn't realize that the Orgs would have to buy thousands of rubber stamps....

    That might be why it never panned out....

    Yes, I remember when my org started issuing them. Whenever anyone asked to have their passport stamped on completion of a service they were told the org didn't have the rubber stamps. So the passports were useless and soon were forgotten. I had one which remained unstamped and I think I threw it away.
