    Well isn't that the sneakiest, slippery as a sewer rat, intro service. :omg:

    I guess the stress tests must not have been going over so well in Clearwater. :eyeroll:

    I read it several times. I know some of the hosts personally.

    But I don't get it!

    What is this, a collaborative DIV VI PR campaign to do all of these things simulataneously???

    * Appeal to potential NOI recruits?

    * Promote Scientology via World Literacy Crusade Scientologists?

    * Help NOI clear up their muddied PR image in the general public?

    I honestly do not get what this is.

    Anyone have a clue?

    Please tell me it's not the criminal Church of Scientology teaching NOI how to clear up their criminal image? !! LOLOLOL

    Seriously WTF is this?!

    It's something (what you described above), that will turn to nothing.

    Me neither.. Is it a hoax? - I think NOI would take offence.. Like freak out over it.

    Who is "us"? White religious jews? Great survey buttons for the Clearwater area one would assume from the promo.

    Who would want to go to this?

    Who CARES what the NOI thinks of "us".

    Why would someone who didn't know about the NOI care what they think.

    And for anyone that DOES now about the NOI it is obvious what they think because it has been a media/internet sensation for decades.

    And anyone who wanted to know they they think of "us" could google it in 5 minutes.

    I am thinking this is a freaky joke or freaky footbullet.

    I think the "us" refers to *scientologists* as opposed to "them" (non-scientologists).
    You're right, btw, it IS a joke... they just didn't mean for it to be one.
    It's the kind of unintentional footbullet joke they don't get!

    Hadn't thought of that. But, it's the only thing that makes any sense (in a Scn way).

    So, if "us" is Scientologists, then they are promoting to parishioners of CoS to get-to-know their NOI brothers & sisters?


    Why oh why would CoS promote ANOTHER religion which is squirrel, wog, abberated, implant-based, false, homo sap, other-practice, off source, doesn't know/use the tech, is not on the Bridge, doesn't want to have anything to do with Scientology ("...we are only here for Dianetics.")

    What is the benefit?

    A PR event to get Scientologists to feel more friendly towards the NOI guy across the academy table glaring at them when they star-rate each other on KSW?

    The more I try to understand this the worse it gets.

    Kind of like the Bridge.

    Still laughing about this one...

    I mean, what PROBLEM does this PR event purportedly solve?

    Good one, BLiP.

    Could it be that a lot of scilons don't accept this spiritual merger, CoS+NOI?

    So it's to persuade scilons to not complain or blow?

    Heh.. I can just imagine some of the hard core scilons getting nauseated beyond endurance.. They'd want to handle those NOI guys ethics and probably declare most of 'em.

    The venue is PostcardMania in Clearwater, a postcard marketing/mailing business complete with statistics and "correction" for every staff member (per the website) and started and owned by Joy Gendusa, one of the presenters. I guess the event is in the lunchroom or the parking lot, since it's not a theatre.

    Maybe one of our Clearwater spais could attend and report on it. :)

    I am just wondering if the NOI people actually know what Hubbard
    thought of blacks and Muslims. Would they be so willing to be
    associated with one of the most racist xenophobic groups on the planet?

    I suspect that that's it exactly. Here's hoping somebody will be there to witness it :)

    Maybe Marty will explain it to us; he owes us, since he promised to give us a detailed rundown on Scn/NoI following his 'Luis Gets Ron!' post.

    I just laughed and accidently flung dots of spittle through the air and onto my screen.

    Very funny visual/thought!

    Who would attend this?...Paranoid fanatics, maybe. Or somebody out for a free meal.
