How about:

"HAVE SEX WITHOUT BEING MARRIED" Haha! Just kidding...

Really though, these next ones may be good:

"CAN YOU PAY THE BILLS ON STAFF WAGES?" OR

"CAN YOU FEED YOUR FAMILY WITHOUT MOONLIGHTING?"

"WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU COULD AFFORD A TRIP TO THE DOCTOR?"

"WHY DOES THE TONE SCALE CONSIST PRIMARILY OF NEGATIVE EMOTIONS?"

Whoops, they are getting rather lengthy, I think I will stop now! Time for coffee...

Those are good staff ones, but not for the SO.

Really, there are two different button areas to push. Well, three. No, four:

1) Sea Org members
2) staff members
3) Scn public
4) the general public, who are uninformed about Scn either way.

The signs at the demos are messages for the audience, the publics reading them. Such as:
  • The CofS staff if the demo is being done at a CofS location;
  • CofS people who see the messages in local press or on TV or YouTube etc.;
  • Non-Scio passers-by, on foot or in vehicles;
  • Non-Scios who see the messages in local press or on TV or YouTube etc.;
  • The protesters themselves, both at the demo and on the internet before and after.
The purpose of the message is different for these different publics. Maybe it is to get a staff member to look more carefully at his personal involvement. Maybe it is to discourage someone new from taking up Scn in the CofS. Maybe it is to increase public awareness of CofS abuses to the point that the CofS has to change some things for the better. Maybe it is to poke fun at churchies. Maybe to denigrate some of the sillier of Hubbard's words.

These signs are going to be mixed in any demo, as individuals will do their own thing, but at least some thought can be put into why one is suggesting any particular choice of words. I've seen articles on the enturbulation.org and related forums suggesting different messages. Most of them I thought inappropriate.

My second preference is for increasing general public awareness of the horrors of Disconnection as actively enforced by the CofS right now.

My #1 item is to promote my own free online Rub & Yawn stuff, but I wouldn't expect others to do that.

Summary of picket message suggestions

This is a summary of picket message suggestions gleaned from various sources. I hope that reading a lot of messages in one spot will help get some creative juices flowing and encourage more suggestions. I may do periodic updates of this posting as I encounter more suggestions.

I’ve listed the messages by target audience, e.g., Scientologist, General Public, specific Scientology groups such as CCHR, etc. Some of the messages came with great color and spacing suggestions, graphics, and other details not reproduced here. I am not showing attribution. I hope the individual contributors don’t mind.

Thanks, Nash.

There are some lists on Enturb.Org forums too if you want to round those up also. :)

Thanks for the tip! I added more messages to the summary post that I found at forums.enturbulation.org. There is an overwhelming amount of info out there!

BTW...I now declare my penitence over! :)

Also, adding more message suggestions is beginning to look like overkill to me. What I think would be of greater value is a listing of messages that have met some kind of criteria for effectiveness (e.g., based on a poll or something). Uhh, better not wait for me to do it though, he said shamefacedly.

What are good ways to letter picket signs?

The best-looking ones are professionally printed. But taking it down a notch, what are the options for someone with a normal inkjet printer, not one that takes folio-size paper?

Hand-lettered ones using wide felt-tip marker pens usually look a bit scrappy. Stencils look like something from a construction site. Stick-on vinyl letters are too expensive.

The CCHR demo pics posted yesterday showed some well-lettered signs. Anyone know how they were produced?
