Scientologists are planning a documentary on Louis Theroux

    She wouldn't, my attempt at humor failed. I was just being conversational.

    Several of his documentaries are on you tube. The one on Hypnosis is good.

    I would guess that Theroux would not want to stop them showing it in the UK .........ants!

    I used to worry about this. If we laugh and say this strategy won't work because... Or this will backfire because... Or I cannot believe they intend to do this because...

    You would think this would discourage them. It doesn't. They will do this anyway, sense or no sense.

    They cannot stop.

    Yes you're right they just can't help themselves. They think they're right and that the public will respect that, they really have no idea how odd they look whatever they do. They are a group that prefers desk thumping aggression to pleasantly getting on with their jobs. They have scary starry eyes, live in a scifi universe that looks the same as the one everyone else lives in but is very very different. They can't work out normal at all.

    Yep. Their universe has more fedoras.

    Oh yeah and crazy convoluted and contradictory cult writings that explain everything and justify the revocation of all your resources, free time, relationships and sanity. :duh:

    I just saw this post.

    I think it's a smokescreen for the whales and true believers. Their magazine is empty and they don't have a spare. Why are they announcing that they are going after Theroux, but not Gibney? Because they've got squat on either, but they still have a chance at intimidating Theroux's employers.

    The Demented Martinet needs to assure the faithful he's making it go right, but there isn't any activity he can engage in to do that at the moment. So he shifts the onus onto a project that we all, based on a looooooong track record, know is going to take years. He can claim it's "in the works", then as the immediate response dies down, he can shift the blame for everything onto those downstat cocksuckers who are delaying the KCET renovation.

    Never mind that Gold has perfectly good facilities right now.

    This is a triple win for DM: he gets to blame someone else for his misfortunes, he gets some breathing room to claim action while deciding what he's really going to do, and he gets a new reg cycle for when the KCET renovations inevitably fall behind schedule.

    I think they're really trilbys.

    They have used their scare tactics and threats of court action before against Aunty BBC, and they backed down, that was in the deep dark past. I don't feel anyone intimidated by them now, yes at one time it worked, but those days are long gone. The BBC is a world player, it can afford lawyers, and the cult's behaviour is understood now. A few pathetic obviously false documentaries about Louis being in a gay porn film (fully clothed) will hardly make the church any friends apart from in ISIS, and they would not like the churches affiliations with what they would think of as an evil squirrel group (NOI). Scientologists really need to sit around and wait for the end.

    They are now known for sending truckloads of threatening letters which come to nothing, so I am not so sure there will be any doco on Louis, but they do have equipment (is there an expensive exquipment being used stat? and studios, and suckers who have to have something to do, so who knows? I hope they make it. As others as have said, it will help to bring their demise and to add to the entertainment.

    Karin Pouw. Get the LT doco made and get your Whole World Laughing at You, stat up.

    Louis Theroux just tweeted.


    Louis Theroux needs to be educated on how warm, fuzzy and adorable Miscavige is. In fact if he refuses to post these commendations, he is wilfully *refusing*
    See that it has been retweeted 475 times already.

    Interesting article. This really resonated:
    Oh, rilly? I guess now we know what to call a cultist's "confront."

    OSA Binder arrives
    See the binder.
    Louis Theroux tweeted again....

    Earlier in time, at the time of the pimping girlfriend for Tom Cruise, Miscavige Lawyer Jeffrey Riffer wrote to Vanity Fair calling him a leading figure of our age.
    and spoke of his *Monumental* and *Herculean* labors.
    Wonder if OSA claimed that again.

    The look on Louis' face is brilliant! :giggle:

    He was handed a giant pile of lies, but entertaining ones that he can now use against Scn.
    So looking forward to how this all plays out. :thumbsup:
