What, Tommy Davis's divorce not worthy of a thread?

HelluvaHoax!

True, but this makes one wonder why he was an epic failure in his position as international spokesmen for the CoS.

Aren't those the traits required for that position? :unsure:

No honest person with any degree of integrity would last even a day in that position.

Tommy probably just needed a couple thousand more hours of drilling on TR-L.



:hysterical:

Scientology never understood what is required of a great spokesperson.


Hubbard had no idea. He thought HE was the Ideal spokesperson. But in interviews, he came across as a manipulative liar. His blinking, gulping, affectations and tells were literally littered across the landscape. He was a very bad liar, especially when cornered. RATING: POOR! COMES ACROSS AS A HUSTLING CON MAN

Miscavige bombed too. One interview (Nightline) and he threw in the towel and never came out for a second round. And he didn't know how to PICK a spokesperson either. Heber Jentzch devolved too often into wildly overblown buffoonery and histrionics. He couldn't find a "valence" that worked, vacillating instead between the pious religious gravitas and laughable clownery. RATING: POOR! COMES ACROSS AS A HUCKSTER WHO THINKS THE AUDIENCE IS STUPID.

How about Tommy Davis? LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL Condescension & Clownery taken to an all new level of cringe. He was robotically putrid and sleazy to boot.

What Scientology always needed was an lovable, avuncular type (think Jimmy Stewart in ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE, or Tom Hanks. Or, Morgan Freeman.....). If they couldn't come up with "lovable" at least they could have come up with "zen serene", connoting an individual who has "made it" and exudes joy (think Dalai Lama). But they couldn't do any of those things, so instead they came up with a joyless, neurotic liar-- Blinky Yingling.

How could the cult not know something this simple? How could the "able" not be able enough to know that if people mistrust/hate your spokesperson, they mistrust/hate you?

REASON: Because this cult is a freaking disaster of stupidinous magnitude!

REASON BEHIND THE REASON: Because Scientologists believe themselves to be far superior to homo sapiens. And after that, the ugly condescension always shows its ugly face. People can see that. And those who do not see it can feel it. And those who do not feel it are not worth worrying about because they are already duped, lock-stepping zombie Scientologists. LOL


If tasked, I could do a casting call and come up with a lovable spokesperson in 6-7 weeks. The cult has failed to do that even once in 6-7 decades!!!!

CONCLUSION: Scientologists don't know how to know. They don't even know that they don't know. You know?

Talking about Cult of Scientology Spokesman.....what about that Lawyer they had as a spokesman back in the late 80's.

What was his name? Cooley or something with a "C"....?

Or was he used more to whip up the crowds?

Just thought I'd mention him.

Was he in the Cult? I don't think so....But if not, why did he take on that job, to address Cult members?

Anyone know what happened to him?

ANSWER: Some time ago, Earle Cooley ran into a medical issue. However, quite fortunately, he was able to rise above and shed that encumbrance. He is currently still working (incommunicado) on behalf of the COS and its parishioners at a remote, interruption-free location, doing advanced research.

from wiki


In the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church, an indulgence is "a way to reduce the amount of punishment one has to undergo for sins".[SUP][1][/SUP] It may reduce the temporal punishment after death, in the state or process of purification called Purgatory.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church describes an indulgence as "a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven, which the faithful Christian who is duly disposed gains under certain prescribed conditions through the action of the Church which, as the minister of redemption, dispenses and applies with authority the treasury of the satisfactions of Christ and the saints".[SUP][2]
[/SUP]

The recipient of an indulgence must perform an action to receive it. This is most often the saying (once, or many times) of a specified prayer, but may also include the visiting of a particular place, or the performance of specific good works.


Sacred inscription on the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran in Rome: Indulgentia plenaria perpetua quotidiana toties quoties pro vivis et defunctis (English trans: "Perpetual everyday plenary indulgence on every occasion for the living and the dead")​

Indulgences were introduced to allow for the remission of the severe penances of the early Church and granted at the intercession of Christians awaiting martyrdom or at least imprisoned for the faith.[SUP][3][/SUP] They draw on the treasury of meritaccumulated by Christ's superabundantly meritorious sacrifice on the cross and the virtues and penances of the saints.[SUP][4][/SUP] They are granted for specific good works and prayers[SUP][4][/SUP] in proportion to the devotion with which those good works are performed or prayers recited.[SUP][5]
[/SUP]

By the late Middle Ages, the abuse of indulgences, mainly through commercialization, had become a serious problem which the Church recognized but was unable to restrain effectively. Indulgences were from the beginning of the Protestant Reformation a target of attacks by Martin Luther and all other Protestant theologians. Eventually the Catholic Counter-Reformation curbed the excesses, but indulgences continue to play a role in modern Catholic religious life. Reforms in the 20th century largely abolished the quantification of indulgences, which had been expressed in terms of days or years. These days or years were meant to represent the equivalent of time spent in penance, although it was widely taken to mean time spent in Purgatory. The reforms also greatly reduced the number of indulgences granted for visiting particular churches and other locations.


Scientology's epic contribution to modernizing 21st century religion is in its streamlining of indulgences--by eliminating the complex concept of awards in the afterlife.

Scientology's major discovery was that all matters of spiritual "exchange" could be fully resolved in the temporal (MEST) world, here and now, by simply handing devout and delighted donors a very large and shiny bowling trophy.

Earl Cooley was the COS junk yard dog Lawyer during the 80s. During the Wollersheim trials, and I think, the Portland Crusade.
I was in the Courtroom one day when Cooley fell on the floor in an apoplectic fit. He was all ruddy show. Maximum sleaze.
He was not a scn'ist. He was a douchbag lawyer, abusing the Courts for the big $$$.
He died.

Contrast today's staged galas to the photo below of the rock group The People.

Gone are the simpler days when you could waltz down to AOLA in your casual wear,
or even a robe as the one fellow, and be enthusiastically validated by the AO staff,
all of whom are dressed in their Captain Bill Robertson space opera attire.

How did this emerging science go so wrong over the decades and turn its back on
its longstanding heritage?

MONEY is Scientology's BLOOD!

Scientology will KILL for money - it will stop at nothing to get it either.

It destroys its own members in the name of what.... MONEY - so the leader, David Miscavige, can live his luxurious lifestyle- playing his evil little game of destroying and ruining people and HIDING behind the religious cloak.

What a game to play - how awful really - when you think about it.

Karma is going to kick his tiny little ass!

Karma is kicking Tommy Davis' ASS right now - he is a confused mess and I hope he looks outside the curtain and discovers the truth - that he was in a cult and was lied to.

Then hopefully he will kick some ass and join Leah Remini in exposing this evil cult.

I seem to recall reading that they lived in Austin, TX but maybe they moved?

Tommy's been switching jobs frequently enough so I don't know where they're at now. I found a thread suggesting that they were back in California as of 2014, and one of the posts (from 5th November 2014) had something quite relevant to this thread about their divorce:

Based on some earlier info provided by Marc Headley, there's back channel talk that Jessica & Tommy may have separated. This has not yet been confirmed.

Still investigating...

Just found a post from Tony O confirming Tommy Davis moved to California back in 2014:


Banished from the Sea Org, Tommy and Jessica settled into their new life. Jessica took out a realtor’s license and went to work for a local firm, while Tommy became majordomo to the wealthy Thomas Barrack Jr. at his real estate private equity firm headquartered in Santa Monica, Colony Capital. (Tommy’s father, the late William Davis, was a wealthy real estate investor.) Tommy and Jessica had their first child, a daughter, in October 2013. Tommy, in a deposition he gave in January 2014, claimed that he was just “on leave” from the Sea Org and was still a member of the Church of Scientology.


More recently, we got the big update. In 2014, Tommy and Jessica moved back to Los Angeles, they’ve now had a second daughter, and Davis dropped his Colony Capital job to go to work for Packer in February. Their new life appears to be agreeing with them; the good-looking couple were captured Wednesday night by Cohen at the Ratner shindig

http://tonyortega.org/2016/08/15/fo...settling-into-his-new-role-as-hollywood-exec/

Some interesting things in that post by Tony O as well as this one:
http://tonyortega.org/2016/05/27/is...ie-billionaire-james-packer-back-in-the-fold/

Tommy Davis was apparently lying to some of the people he was working with telling them he renounced Scientology while actually on a mission from Miscavige attempting to bring billionaire James Packer back into the fold.
