    Stolen Valor

    Scientology has a habit of trying to gain credibility by aligning themselves with legitimate organizations and causes, making it seem they are part of it. They are imposters, seeking to gain goodwill or some other advantage by preying on the good name of others. Recently my daughter, Taryn Teutsch, has been attempting to inveigle herself […]

    The military maintains records on what those "I was there" ribbons mean but I don't think Scientology does.

    Keeping in mind in Scientology Hubbard is reverently referred to as "Source".

    SEA ORG SYMBOL, 1. the Sea Org symbol adopted and used as the symbol of a Galactic Confederacy far back in the history of this sector, derives much of its power and authority from that association. The laurel wreath represents victory. Used throughout the history of this planet to crown poets, artists, champions and conquerers, it not only represents the physical victory but the series of inner victories achieved by the individual, and the clarification and purification of his inner aims and purposes which lead to the outward victory. It is associated with the head, the traditional abode of the spirit. The five pointed star most commonly signifies rising up towards the point of origin; thus, it is a potent symbol of alignment to source. The laurel wreath and star, in combination, signify the victory of the spirit which is rising upward towards the point of origin or source. Its proper color is always gold. And note that the star is not trapped in its victory, but is in the open field towards the top of the wreath, allowing free exit, beyond its victory, and that is, in fact, in a field of blue, symbolizing truth. (FO 3350) [FO: Flag Order] 2. the star is the confederation and each one of those leaves is counted, it's the number of stars. (6804SM-)[Taped lecture][4]
