    Kudos go to Peter Griffiths for being such a good publicist, the last time something like this happened was The Man With No head.

    If you listen right to the end of Ocean FM's interview with Sabrina, she lies and lies and lies and lies but eventually admits that the whole story is a lie.

    Yes, she said.

    With "the whole story" does she mean the Hubbard-con called Scientology ? :coolwink:

    Scientology – the biggest scam about

    Ocean FM are not going to let this one die. Never piss off a media group.

    But one thing baffles me. Did they imagine Ireland was too remote and third-worldly for this to come to light? Whose idea was this? Did the Tiny One approve? Someone one has been plotting and planning this for months.

    I suspect the Tiny One's relatively recent fussiness about security on videos and not letting them lie around too long etc, was supposed to protect him against this exact sort of outing on cult pr lies, but SPs are a few steps ahead nowadays.

    Well if you think about possible collateral damage - Ireland is not in the U.S so any potential fallout would possibly not make it into the headlines in Schmerica.
    The cult is supertiny in Ireland, so any fallout here would mean no big deal.

    Stupid thing to do anyways, not good to lie when all you want to do is flourish and prosper. :confused2:

    I think that cult just cannot help themselves but to embellish and lie, its sort of the way Hubbard designed the whole scheme. The ball-o'-wax, 'If you believe it is true, then it is true.' thingy, paints a rather black and white picture in Lron's twisted universal vision.
    Confabulation, come on, ya know ya need it, so believe it! *shudderz*
    Every time I hear a CoS spokes-hole tell the truth I are gob-smacked, as rare a thing as tits on a bird I'm afraid. A term that often comes to mind is 'Twisting in the wind', hm, and 'cognitive dissonance'. I guess it boils down to the old thing of if you tell a lie often enough then it will become true (to you), making you more convincing to yourself and hopefully to others. It is, of course, an utter fallacy.

    See what I mean? Good-frikken-fried-penguin-eggs-and-bacon-Batman!

    But news agencies with the EU are more likely to pick up an Irish story, especially with the current news cycle n France, right? Shit, the well is already poisoned in the US, but if he goes and pisses in the bath water over in news outlets where the Russians and other Eastern Europeans might be watching, that kills the most fertile ground for expansion he's got, doesn't it?

    I haven't seen anything in the Swedish or Danish news on this.

    Frankly I don't think the Russians or East Europeans care much for what happens in Ireland. Maybe if the Guinness warehouse burned to the ground or one of the finer distillery's maybe.

    I am thinking this is kind of true, but keep in mind that cult has been targeting the 'third-world' for a while now for new 'raw-meat', to whit~ the southern Americas and island chains where a piece of blue sky seems like a great opportunity. They are 'slumming' as usual, but they (cult) cannot help but target European nations as that's where they can receive some real gains (money people).
    I believe this to be an area of conflict for the cult, like hm, is it better to have 1,000 suckers spending big bucks or, how about getting a 1$ from millions of suckers? Durr-durr, how about we do it all!
