The same libel laws that are making trouble for Going Clear in Northern Ireland may interfere with this doco. Wouldn't it be delicious if they can't show this doco in Theroux's home country? Or if he sues them and wins...
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...Shhhhhh......don't discourage them......

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.
I heard from one of Mr/s Blanky's friends at the org that scientology is planning to launch their own series of interviews and exposes once the new media center is ready for operation. I don't know where s/he got that info and it's possible I was eavesdropping ....
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.
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.
I can't wait for his film to be out in theatres!!!
Oh, rilly? I guess now we know what to call a cultist's "confront."...he poses a seemingly innocuous question to Jonathan, stood rigid and apathetic (we're told later that emotionless behaviour is part of the constellation of "negative symptoms" seen in schizophrenic people)...
