Staff to receive $500 from the Church of Scientology for GAT II Release

Discussion in 'Evaluating and Criticising Scientology' started by Idle Morgue, Nov 11, 2013.

    I just got a call from a public Scientologist inviting me to the GAT II event. He told me that the staff are receiving $500 and with the release of GAT II - it is going to clear the planet for real.

    I had to get off the phone because I was going into to a meeting. I have not called them back yet to get the details.

    Has anyone else heard of this? Why are Staff getting the $500 bonus - to get people to come to the event or bribe them into staying on staff?

    My bet - it is pretty bleak within the walls of Bedlam!! Desperate times call for desperate measures!

    Wow, that's a year's pay for most Sea Org members!

    Maybe they have to pay back the $500 "from the vastly increased payroll sum when they are delivering Super Power" at 10% per month interest. What could go wrong with that?

    I don't know. We need more details.

    I bet a record number of SO staff take this opportunity to "blow" - leave forever. Prepare for heavy traffic on ESMB...

    Gawd I need to get off my butt and post my SS earnings report for when I was in the Sea Org.....

    $500.00 is almost twice as much as I made some years.

    " and with the release of GAT II - it is going to clear the planet for real"

    Ummm... Let's see... DMSMH didn't do it, the Dianetics ads didn't do it, the changing of the grade chart didn't do it, the OT levels didn't do it, the grades didn't do it, the quicky grades didn't do it, the revised grades didn't do it,, the HCOPLs and HCOBs didn't do it, the re-vised OT levels didn't do it, the re-re-revised training, grades, OT levels and the new quickey grades didn't do it, GAT didn't do it, OTVIII didn't do it, the basics didn't do it, and the the lectures didn't do it. People still leaving in droves. But GAT II is gonna do it! I cannot wait! :clap::clap: Sooo exciting!! :dance3::buzzin: It's gonna be another round of heavy selling, pain and torture of staff and public and more leaving in droves, me thinks.
    The $500 to staff must surely be a bribe to not defect. Or an advanced payment on the all-nighters they're going to be pulling selling this one. Poor sods.

    What exactly is GATII - are they books re-written again and re sold to members that have not even opened their 4502 boxes sitting in their basements of the last GAT I?

    I wonder if the $500 is the amount of money that the staff members get if they sell the shit? I don't think this an arbitrary "gift" just for being on staff and COB appreciates it!

    This should be interesting. I can't wait to get the phone calls. I have got a very clever plan of action to bust holes in their Scientological Bubble! :coolwink:

    Jason Beghe - there isn't enough money in the world to "clear" the planet


    I luv this guy. I remember when last year when I saw the whole interviewer, the house of cards came tumbling down.

    Jason puts it nicely at the end - scientology is a theta trap.

    If this is true, it goes to show that paying $500 to each staff member isn't going to break the $cientology bank. Any guesses as to the total number of staff?

    I'm sure there must be some sort of stipulation attached. Like they have to get 10 people to show up at the event.

    Well, you could go along and find out?

    I would, but I'm afraid I'm too well known and at 6'4" I can't exactly hide in the crowd.

    Just remember to leave your credit cards and check book at home. You know how persuasive they can be! :ohmy:

    This sounds very unusual to give the staff a bonus like this.

    It really does sound like a desperate measure. Maybe to try to hang onto some staff when the morale is so low.

    The information that Gaye and Earnest Corbett provided from their tour of the Ideal Morgues is very telling.

    Back when I was on staff and was having doubts I would hear something similar to the Gat II promotional stuff - that it's gonna "clear the planet for real". I would think even back than that it was bullshit but hung around a while longer in case I was wrong. :duh:

    I suspect that that's why some of the remaining staff are still hanging on despite severe doubts that they've got to have.
    They want to believe that Miscavige is really going to pull something out of his ass that's going to be a game changer.

    If Superpower IS ever really released there will come a point soon enough that the CoS Scientologists will come to realize that it also was a bunch of hype as well that's not going to result in any planets being cleared.

    And at that point Miscavige can make an announcement that the preparations are being made to release OT IX and X! (the fact that they don't exist isn't a problem as he can drag this out for decades just as he did with Superpower.

    I wonder if it might be a $500.00 credit for future Co$/scientology services. :whistling:

    my god, i can't help being reminded of those poor 20 somethings that used to come round selling magazine subscriptions so they could win a trip to hawaii.
    these people were a lot like dianetics booksellers, as in they never gave up hard selling you.
    as a matter of fact, when a guy came round to sell me a dianetics book,i was really impressed he had the book right there!
    i hope the s.o. members really get $500 each, must seem like a fortune to them, but why am i skepitcal of that?
    howbout you ask them to send a contact that legally proves they will get the bonus? lol.

    The $500?

    It's to validate the release of GAT II and SuperPower and their becoming a reality!

    Because GAT II is a now a reality.

    And Superpower is now a reality.

    And Planetary Clearing is now a reality.

    And Ron's dream is becoming a reality.

    And the state of Clear is a reality.

    And achieving OT is now a reality.

    And total freedom is therefore a reality.

    That's why the $500 payment to staff is now a reality.

  19. Dangling $500 in front of staff member to get them to come to their batahit crazy tent party is probably the cult's most desperate act to date.
