I disagree that it's religious bigotry to say that the tech does not work as advertised.
Good shore story, Smurf. Just not good enough. You kind of showed your whole hand on this one.
snip of bawwww....
You've burned some more bridges on this one, Smurf. Someday you may become human again. But it's not looking real good for you so far.
Has anybody actually argued this point, that it is religious bigotry to say that "the tech does not work as advertised"??? :confused2:
In my view for someone to claim that the tech does work as advertised
is absolutely fraudulent (or delusional). I believe an overwhelming majority of people practicing scientology in the freezone would acknowledge that while they get gains, that they are not as was originally advertised by Hubbard. And starting your own religion as Hubbard did shouldn't protect the CoS from using fraudulent bait and switch marketing techniques. As Senator X pointed out in Australia, this isn't about their
beliefs or limiting their beliefs, it is about their behavior. It is about the law, and no one is above it, even the CoS. And pointing out the fraud of it all certainly doesn't make one a religious bigot.
PTStype4--there's a lot of good criticism out there. A lot of valid criticism. Most is, in fact. And there are many good effective critics.
But there are critics who are bigots much of the time and there are criticisms that are bigoted. I've seen it. This type is in the minority but not so small a minority that it's difficult to perceive. It would not be at all difficult to locate and point out bigotry amongst critics, past and present.
So very true VCIn every walk of life there are all sorts of people. There are earnest fervent political activists who are good people and who are fuckheads and who want to hurt others. Same with the Scn critic scene. Same with any activism, any criticism. Some critics are fuckheads. Most are not. DO NOT make the mistake of always assuming that the enemy of your enemy is your friend.
AO, AGP - *mega eyeroll* Nuff said.
Every cell has its token arsehole that won't go away, even though that person knows that the other Anons dislike him/her. AGP and AO keep crossing the line, though. I hope the Anon who was doxxed presses charges against AO.
It IS bogus, and when the CoS plays this religious bigotry card in attempt to discredit their critics I am hoping that some will take legal action (civil and/or criminal) against them for defamation.
They are really tedious.Hmm.. Not having read this whole thread about infighting.. And realizing that I probably wouldn't understand WTF it's about even if I did..
However, I do get the impression that Anon Orange and Angry Gay Pope is picking these silly infights and creating a shitstorm of bevildering confusion that would make OSA jealouz!
We don't need that!
I think even AO and AGP can agree.. Unless they're OSA fools on the Hill 10.. In which case the they do what Hubbards policies says.. But I don't think they are.
