    So I was just looking around on Facebook and I found an interesting-looking profile: "ClearGhana Clearafrica." http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002796948191

    I started looking around the profile, and stumbled upon this photo: [​IMG]

    This can't possibly be what it looks like, can it? Say it isn't so! Does anyone know much about Scientology in Africa? (Outside of South Africa)

    Horrible. I hope there's an innocent story behind the pic. I'm afraid I don't know anything about Scn in Ghana.

    That's what I'm hoping isn't the case. There's really not any context to the photo, so I'm in the dark. I'm *really* hoping they're just posing with someone else's billion year contract, which seems the likeliest scenario (if I'm going to retain any faith in humanity). If not, it's a new low, even for Scientology.

    lotus stubborn rebel sheep!

    1) They need money AND slaves
    2) they know how to make money with people having no money (loan and credit or anything else )


    :bigcry:

    Google Ghana and Scientology - what we find (sceintology sites) is very disgusting.

    Well, there's a lot of weirdnesses about that Facebook page. Strange favorites, for one thing. The Jon Stewart Show? For a Scientology group in Ghana? :eyeroll:

    And the website link they gave, www.clearafrica.org, doesn't work.

    The Daily Show does air in Africa, weird as it sounds. I remember a guest recently talking about how the Somali pirates he was writing about liked the show.

    I didn't know about that. Nasty! Thank you for bringing it to our attention... it deserves some careful thought, but I don't think Ghana offers a solution to Scientology's pain.

    Scientology has been busy in Africa the last decade setting up missions & recruiting the gullible among the Third World countries. Former OSA (now private)attorney Tim Bowles and Mary Shuttleworth have been very involved in the effort.

    Tim said.. "Representing Youth for Human Rights International in Ghana in 2006, he said, "Ghana should lead the crusade for championing the tenets of United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights...through human rights education from an early age", adding that his organization had developed materials to assist in doing so."

    Um, don't forget how Scientology swooped in after the Haitian earthquake and then decide to stay.

    I don't put any diry low down despicable act past these hearless bastards.

    I would put them somewhere between "This is some crazy-ass bullshit," and "Get me the fuck out of here." That's Tone 50, Seeing Through the Mindfuck.

    That's a big-ass SO contract! Do you think the kid's name is "Religion Commitment"? My SO contract didn't have that printed on the top of it.

    Found something in German... a Scientology press release.

    http://www.skb-pressedienst.de/2010_kw09.html

    Short translation:
    Scientology Church Milan (Italy) and "Society for human rights (Italy)" (I am not sure if this is the right English name for this front group) opened a second school in Ghana at January, 6th 2010. The school is in Twewaa. The other school is the "Untoma Oxford International Schule" opened in the year 2008. 300 kids visit this school.

    A third school in East Ghana should get open at the end of 2010.

    Name of the responsible Scientologist: Annalisa Tissoni (president Scientology Church Milano), Fiorella Gaetano and Gaetano Cerchiara




    Imo it really seems they recruit their slaves from ghana. This is sad. Poor kids.

    They use to say "if it's not fun, it's not Scientology". These kids DO NOT look like they are having fun. :angry:
