    Oh sigh.

    I think I can speak with a little authority on the subject of the Kult and
    Pedophile cover-ups, given my public conversations with law enforcement, media, politicians, etc., yes?

    There is a “culture” that is across cults that believes that they have “The Answer” to every problem that bests Humankind, and $cientology is no different.

    Here in Oz, the delightful Cardinal George Pell recently lost his appeal to get out of jail for child sex crimes. He’s had two former Prime Ministers and numerous other “opinion leaders” whine that he’s really a nice man and would never do something like this. It’s been the flavour of the year that leaves a bad taste in my mouth and that of many others.

    On a more personal note, I have a relative by marriage who is a convicted pedophile and the Schofield family have disconnected from this scum because he tried to groom my daughter and could see nothing wrong with that. The others in the family believed he needed support to help him through his tough times. Our beliefs aren’t so charitable.

    Back to the kult. In my extensive experience (view my statement on Hansard in the Oz Federal Parliament records if you like) the kult has a similar but more entrenched view. Don’t forget it’s a High Crime to report a person in good standing to the police. And remember that,just like every other cult, Hubbardism believes it can cure EVERY PROBLEM IN THE UNIVERSE.

    And that is all the Aftermath and a hell of a lot of “us” have been saying for years now. $cientology DOES NOT believe in pedophilia per se. It believes that that and all other “non-optimum” behaviours can be cured by it and it alone.

    So Al I just can’t believe that you would accuse Mike and Leah of being soft on this and pushing some kind of hidden agenda. I think No One above got it right.

    And I just can’t believe that my yearly lurk here got me scratching my head and posting about something the f’ing Armadillo is ranting about. I got a bus to drive, ffs!!!

    :grouphug: Scooter!! :bighug: Give your missus and the kids a hug for me!

    On a more serious note:

    I have a relative by marriage who is a convicted pedophile and the Schofield family have disconnected from this scum because he tried to groom my daughter and could see nothing wrong with that.

    :wtf: :angry: That little angel? :omg: So glad you stood strong and cut him off. What is wrong with people that they make excuses for this crap and justify it?!? :angry:

    Do you still have all the chooks and the birds and dog(s)?

    I missed you!! Great to see you!

    5 words - if I space them they lose their authenticity. They just don't SOUND right.

    :wow: Caitlin's 16!!! :omg: She was half my height last time I saw her. James in uni and working, wow! :biglove: Good for him! Like you said, time goes by far, far too fast.

    Caz is such a doll. I'm glad you noticed early she's a keeper. :coolwink: I really like her. Who wouldn't? I hope she has a job she enjoys.

    Awww, you still have all your animals, too, and added a duck. :biglove: I just have two cockatiels, but they greet me every morning with: "There you go, baby!" "You're so cute" and "You're a good girl." :laugh: They fly fairly freely around here and pretty much took over my screened in back deck. I'm still looking after the oldies for a living, same as I did there.

    My son is teaching in China right now and recently finished a stint in Japan. That one is always traveling but doing very well for himself. One of my brothers moved near me and his daughter is going to uni in my town, too, so I finally have some family close by. :happydance:

    Not sure how long you can stick around, but it sure is GREAT to see you and catch up. :bighug:

    Hits the nail on the head.

    Viewers like reality TV that has the prospect of winners and losers, not just losers and then more losers and then an endless stream of losers and sympathizing with them - no victories in the offing. An endless stream of lose lose lose and it's sad - this doesn't hold an audience. A show about poverty and an endless series of proofs that poor people exist would suffer the same fate.

    They only had so many shockers to sell.

    Never thought of a rape victim as a "loser" but probably, through the Scientology prism, that's how it would seem.

    Tossing the Scientology cult prism aside, and examining the list of three years of episodes Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath - Wikipedia it appears as though a lot of helpful information was presented.

    Nothing that would produce a criminal indictment, though. Nothing that would ever put David Miscavige or any officer of the Church of Scientology into criminal jeopardy.

    And your hero (Mike Rinder) is now talking, after 12 years of being out, about how important and powerful criminal indictments are over civil suits this morning. And he is also acknowledging that he has known this the whole time he has been out.

    Don't you find that interesting?

    "Victim" is not a permitted beingness in Scientology. It is at .1 on Hubbard's tone scale, which places it well into the territory of the "reactive mind." Note his definition for "Scientologist:" one who is not a victim. If Mike Rinder, who is reputed to be the cult's greatest victimizer, is also a victim, are there no Scientologists in Scientology?

    Here's an excerpt from my Season 3 Episode 12 transcript after the segment about Chrissie Bixler, that includes messages attributed to corporate Scientology, followed by a fast-moving stream of profiling terms:

    I suspect there are many more that prefer to stay utr until possible lawsuits are settled.
