    Danke - hätte aber meiner Meinung nach besser sein können. :unsure:

    Aber ich habe während der Sendung und vor allem danach in Gesprächen mit Herr Stettler, Herr Busch und einem weiteren Scientologen einiges gelernt und ich habe weitere Beweise für die Richtigkeit meiner Vorwürfe gegen die Scientology Kirche sammeln können. Werde vielleicht bei Gelegenheit einmal hier darüber berichten.

    Krautfag said:

    Well done, Markus! Stettler is still disgusting.

    I answered:
    Thank you - but I think it could have been better.:unsure:

    But I have learned a lot during the show and especially afterwards in my conversation with Mr. Stettler, Mr. Busch and another Scientologist. I have found further evidence for the correctness of my accusations against the Church of Scientology in these conversations. Maybe I will tell you about this here sometime.

    Markus, Stettler was way funnier than all you haters.

    Where was this "Irony" smiley again? :)

    There will be justice one day.

    :confused2: Ich spreche kein Deutsch :confused2:

    But I definitely think our Marcus was the best!! Clearly the most open one here.

    Who is the guy with his fist in front of his face? I get he's from scn. At 00:30 to 00:32 he shows fear! His face completely changes! Almost like he's gonna cry.

    And I loved 12:47!
    Camera work made me dizzy around 16:50.
    Beady-shifty eyes around 20:03 from Stettler, I presume.

    Sorry, I can only resort to body language here!

    I'm wondering who was in the audience, Marus. Random lay people or scn people? Just curious.

    Any info. on how this went would be appreciated Marcus due to language barrier! I'd say it went well but interested in your remarks.

    Don't worry, I've heard a subtitled version is already in the making and will be youtubed soon if it isn't already .

    Body language? Wait for the subtitled version, and watch Stettlers "Yay, WIN!" reaction after Lanz said that a lawyer had called shortly before the show began and certain aspects of Markus' story could not be discussed in the show.

    I LOL'd when I saw that reaction. Oh well, let Stettler have his Candy Bar for now, there aren't too many of those left for him, and he won't have the time to eat 'em anyway. :D

    Markus wasn't allowed to tell the whole story and it could have been better in that regard.

    Markus, if you read this, I'd like to know, was there anything else that you think could have been better?

    I know you would have liked to tell more and explain better, but don't mind it.
    TV is all about image and appearance and you came along as the most sincere and credible person on that panel. That's why it was a good job :)

    I found the end very good!

    At the end of the discussion Markus Lanz (moderator) asked Markus what he wishes from Scientology.
    Markus answered an excuse to his family.
    Stettler was to see, a big picture from him. It seemed that this answer surprised him.

    Markus I wrote it in the PM in German!:)

    I hope the subtitles that a German anon make are soon ready!

    Markus you made a very good job there! :) ... and of course Wilfried Handl too.

    Dear Arthur,
    the guy with "his fist in front of his face" is Mr. Stettler (official spokesman of the Church of Scientology Germany)
    As far as I know there were random lay people in the audience only a few scn people. At least two of them.

    Mr. Lanz in my opinion was too fast - he was in a hurry almost all the time.
    But I think it still was a good show and I managed to get across my message.
    When Stettler got the "Beady-shifty eyes" I was talking about how two Sea Org registrars from Copenhagen came to the living room of my mother and forced her to buy auditing by telling her that she will get ill or die if she would not do the OT levels right now.

    Yeah, that's the problem with TV shows. Getting a maximum of information out in a minimum amount of time without coming off as too nervous or too hectic isn't easy.

    Yes, you did. :thumbsup:

    Wow! It is great to finally SEE you Markus. Great job. I just have to ask, did the phone call from the lawyer before the show have anything to do with NOT talking about DM?

    Love to get a full debrief some time.

    The guy who does the subtitles just said that he's still working on it, but it might take a while because he's having a busy time ATM.

    Wonderful stuff! :happydance: Can't wait to see it when it's sub titled.

    Good on you, Markus and all!..........That wouldn't be easy, but I know that you would have done better than how you rated yourself, and that your participation and "performance" here, will have the result of huge leaps towards justice and change. I don't understand German at all, but I watched it, and very much liked what I saw.

    Good work! :thumbsup:
