    Tony Ortega at the Village Voice has started a great series: "The Top 25 People Crippling Scientology"

    So far I've just read the entry for #23 and there's some excellent info in their about some of the attorneys who have battled against the CoS, much of it I was previously unfamiliar with.


    Here's links to the first few entries:

    #25: Xenu, galactic overlord

    #24: David Touretzky (and other academics)
    http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2011/08/david_touretzky_top_25_crippling_scientology.php

    #23: Ken Dandar (and other attorneys who litigate against the church)

    Thank you so much for the links to the Village Voice. I had not seen a lot of the data that is printed here. I can't wait to see the whole list of "The Top 25 People Crippling Scientology. It has to include Marty Rathbun, Mike Rinder, Emma from ESMB, and maybe even David Misscabbage. It is great reading and shows who some of the real heroes are in fighting the cult.

    Well.....LRH's name and scientology is certainly getting smashed into history. Isn't that what he wanted?

    There's a good deal of smashing going on. :roflmao:

    Weird how all those buttersquashers are making it into the top 25 already! :biggrin:

    I reckon , seeing Graham Berry as well already was suprising.

    Why would Rathbun and/or Rinder appear in a list of "The Top 25 People Crippling Scientology"? Those two are doing all they can to keep the subject alive. I agree about David Miscavige, though, surely he's due a spot in the top ten!!

    EDIT: Doh! Now, I get it ; )

    Thanks to Tony Ortega and his honest reporting of my friend Frank Oliver and the whole deal which followed the horrible death of Lisa McPherson, the trials, the newspaper reports etc.etc. more than one person has been able to disconnect from the binds of the Church of Scientology.

    How wonderful that the does what he does and has never wavered from the TRUTH!

    Kudos! and Cheers! So glad he's there.!
