    Incidentally, Mike Wallace interviewed Gerry for this 60 minute show. The Scientologists threatened 60 minutes, and they cut Gerry's part. Mike Rinder was then CO OSA US.
    pineapple and Hatshepsut like this.

    that's a great video. It exposes the rhetoric of hubbard and his followers.

    At the 9 minute mark and few minutes later, Heber says the word rhetoric.

    I always look at hubbard and his brain child dianetics and scientology from a rhetoric POV, or persuasion.

    So what if Mike Rinder was CO OSA US?

    I view it as Rinder was rhetoric persuaded like the rest us.
