    Scientology - yes, something can be done about it!

    Speed reading through cult flyers can be so rewarding.

    The only thing that's true in that flyer is the time, date, and place. Everything else is a complete lie.

    Are you certain? Because, yaknow, sometimes they change "time, date, and place" in the last minute.

    OK, OK, I'm just teasing you. :wink2:

    I find the underlining of the "find your seat" hilarious. Almost as if they couldn't afford enough seats for their [STRIKE]Customers[/STRIKE] "donors".

    Seriously, does anyone have suggestions for appropriate signs for the event?

    I'm thinking, money related as the IAS event is overwhelmingly about money. like "IN SCIENTOLOGY YOU"RE ONLY AS VALUABLE AS YOUR ABILITY TO PAY"

    Any other ideas welcome.

    Get with the times. Follow the OTVIII's and class VIII's who have led the way out. The Work was free. Keep it so.

    Not for events at the Shrine they don't.

    That's a good sign. You want signs that aren't wordy & are in large letters so they can be read from a distance as protesters will be kept on the opposite side of the street.

    One of the SoCal protesters challenged the police & the cult's street permit at the last Shrine events & ended up being arrested & taken to jail, where a police supervisor released him from one jail, only to be re-arrested & taken to another, evidence that the cult has influence with the LAPD.

    Protesters should get to the event area around 4:00. That's when the buses start rolling in. I also found out that Sunday, Nov. 4 is the Daylight Savings Time change, so it will get dark around 5:30.

    As if that's hard to do. You get one ScioPD to confess and you get the dirt on a whole division. The LAPD is one of the, if not the most corrupt PDs in the nation.

    The problem is not Scientologists working as cops; the cult has duly influenced politicians & police in California in cash contributions. The cult, over the years, has hired experienced PR firms & attorneys to counsel them on how to manipulate entities to assist them in doing their bidding.

    OSA attorney Elliott Abelson told me in a deposition over a decade ago that the cult had the LAPD in their "back pocket."

    At every one of the Scientology events at The Shrine Auditorium in the past, the cult has provided alot of supplemental income to moonlighting LAPD officers, and, in return, the City of Los Angeles has coughed up $500 or more in taxpayer funds to offset the cult's costs for the event.
