The thetans made me do it

Scientology. Where do I begin? There is so much to say.
  • The South Park episode that tells Scientology's actual creation story ... can you tell it was founded by a science fiction writer? South Park is aired on Comedy Central, which is owned by Paramount. Paramount made Mission Impossible 3. Tom Cruise stars in Mission Impossible 3. Tom Cruise is a Scientologist. Comedy Central was going to re-air the episode last Wednesday, until Tom threatened to refuse to promote MI3. Curiouser and curiouser ...
  • A website called Operation Clambake that tells all about Scientology, including a recent article from Rolling Stone. Tons of interesting reading.
Don't get me wrong. Religion and spirituality are very personal things, and if beliefs help guide a person's life and give them strength, then hooray for them. But this stuff is just weird. Guess I'm now a Suppressive. Next up on my list to expose ... cell phone antenna boosters!Booster

dan - So scientology handlers pulled him off the show? Curiouser and curiouser …

Mormons are also an interesting bunch, what with the prophet Joseph Smith, polygamy and the buried gold tablet finding in upstate New York. I’ve been meaning to read John Krakauer’s expose book for a while to learn more. The Nicholses have it … have to borrow it when they get back.

Kris - You have sparked my curiosity. I’m going to do some reading….

Gary - Dan-o, I would be careful of the Scientologists when publicly criticizing them (i.e. online). Their laywers are known to come after anyone and everyone who does that. Forgetful.ca could be shut down!

dan - Gary – in your comments you seem very aware of the likelihood of litigation as a result of loose blog lips. Bad experience on your “Sports Addict” blogs that you frequent?

Updates on the Mormons:

– Shannen bought me “Under the Banner of Heaven” for my birthday. No need to borrow from los Nicholses.
– HBO (and The Movie Network in Canada) have a show about polygamist mormons called “Big Love”. Very good. Sunday nights at 10 (same time slot as Grey’s Anatomy, but BL is on demand all week, so we’re OK).
