Geir Isene leaves Co$
This in from Operation Clambake:

Geir is the most respected high level Scientologist in Norway, an OT VIII in very good standing. While he says he’s had an enormous amount of spiritual gain from Scientology, he’s now stepping forward publicly saying it has been in spite of the malpractice and suppression of free will by the Church of Scientology.

Needless to say, this is a big win. Read all about it on Geir’s new anti-Co$ blog.

The St. Petersburg Times may have actually strapped on a pair
And that can be a hard thing to do when you live in such close proximity to Flag. Haven’t had a chance to review it all myself, but it could potentially be some of the best stuff yet, and all the more powerful given this publication’s history vis-a-vis the Clammies. No idea if it’s actually new, but I’ve been out of the loop for a while, so it’s new to me.

Scientology leader David Miscavige is the focus of this special report from the St. Petersburg Times. Former executives of the Church of Scientology, including two of the former top lieutenants to Miscavige, have come forward to describe a culture of intimidation and violence under David Miscavige. These former Scientology leaders served for years with Miscavige.

Go see for yourself what looks to be a delicious exposé on The Dwarf and his cult: The Truth Rundown.

In an apparent act of retaliation,
Co$ has decided to begin placing ads on the St. Petersburg Times’ website.

And at least one Clearwater cop wasn’t on the $cn payroll
Now retired, he apparently accumulated thousands of pages of legal documents on the therapy cult, as well as A/V. Here’s hoping we’ll live to see some of it. Actually, here’s hoping he’ll live long enough to release it, now that he’s opened his mouth about it.

Your Daily Entheta for 3/18/08

The Village Voice carries yet another delicious article about Scientology and Anonymous. Contains this week’s Xenuphobia Quote of the Week: “Taste the delicious bacon sandwich of truth about Scientology!”

Anonymous #2 wore a top hat and sunglasses, and said his personal mission was to alert onlookers of the “unfair” tax exempt status enjoyed by the Church of Scientology. At least 80 percent of all fees for “religious training and services” paid to the Church of Scientology are tax deductible, a privilege enjoyed by no other religion and a fact that does not sit well with Church critics. “They actually have a better tax exempt status than any other religion of all the established religions,” said Anonymous #2. While we spoke, he noted the presence of a very obvious camera in a third floor window of the Church across the street. That’s why he needs his sunglasses, he said. “They’re taking pictures of us right now, as we speak.”

Will Smith says he’s yet to drink the Kool Aid.

A spokesman for Smith told TheCelebrityTruth.com, “As Will Smith’s publicist I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that Will is not a Scientologist.”

And, not content with their epic YouTube fails, the cult has now launched its own video site–you know, because things haven’t been embarrassing enough for them lately.

The church announced on Monday the launch of a new online video portal at its Scientology.org Web site. The portal contains 82 videos tallying nearly 3 hours worth of content, “provid[ing] an overview of the basic beliefs and practices of the religion, as well as information on the many humanitarian programs sponsored by the Church–programs addressing drug abuse, illiteracy, human rights and disaster relief,” according to a release issued this morning. [Editor’s Note: Perhaps this means they’ll be suing themselves now?]

Enjoy, SP.



Jenna & Dallas: $cn’s Epic Fail is Epic
Jenna has asked that the following message from her be forwarded everywhere possible. This is another example of Scientology making matters worse for themselves. And it’s even more evidence of just how much courage Jenna has:————————————————

So where do I begin…. I did an interview this week with ABC Nightline. They of course had to call the Church for comment which they did.

Last night at 11pm, while we were in bed, we got a call from Dallas’s father. He said he was 20 minutes away from our house and he was driving down from a meeting he had today and in the car with him were 2 Sea Org members from OSA Int and they were coming to talk to us at our house.

He said that they had come to talk to him but he insisted that we should be there and that they wanted to talk to us. So they just decided it was okay to drop in on us in the middle of the night in true Sea Org style. Continue reading



Breaking News: Marcabians claim responsibility for Scientology bomb threats

ST. PETERSBURG — This morning police detonated a suitcase in front of Scientology’s Life Improvement Center after cult officials reported a “bomb threat.”Afterwards the police stated definitively that the suitcase did not contain a bomb.

The internet group known as “Anonymous,” which explicitly forbids the use of violence against the cult, its members, or its buildings, responded by implicating Scientology itself as responsible for the incident.

“I think it is a fake threat by Scientology to discredit their critics,” said one of the cult’s opponents.

However, at 6:30PM EST this evening, the Associated Press and Reuters have both reported receiving transmissions claiming responsibility for the bomb threats–from the Marcabians (see photo), whose enormous invasion fleet continues to lie in wait hovering above our planet defenseless planet.

Rulers of the galactic Marcab Confederacy, the Marcabians are a race of beings with a ruthlessly oppressive regime and who also enjoy racing. The Confederacy is best known publicly for its mass-implantation of the souls of its citizens in the bodies of Earthlings as a form of penal imprisonment. Continue reading

Kate Olson photoPRESS RELEASE
Portland, Oregon – March 11, 2008
— For Immediate Release —
Portland, OR resident Susan Lentsch is issuing a public statement on March 15 at the Scientology Headquarters Los Angeles, CA, calling on her daughter’s employer, the Church of Scientology, to permit her daughter, Katherine “Kate” Olson, to come home from Los Angeles to Portland to visit her family. Ms. Lentsch has seen Kate for only six days during the past 15 years and reports that the Church of Scientology has forbidden Kate to leave the facility where she both works and is housed in order to visit family.

Kate was recruited into the Sea Organization (Sea Org), an affiliate of the Church of Scientology, in 1993, at age 17. Susan Lentsch, at that time a Scientologist, signed papers permitting her minor daughter to become a Sea Org employee; Ms. Lentsch states she signed the forms under pressure and while influenced by Scientology indoctrination.

Only Anonymous could help give the Village Voice its journalistic balls back following its recent takeover, during which the paper “purifed” itself of its best writers like so much purple goo. Tony Ortega, author of the article that has the nipples of Xenuphobia so hard they could cut glass, is certainly worthy of the title SP of the Week–and it’s only Tuesday! The article, titled “What to get L. Ron Hubbard for his birthday,” refers to Scientology as a “ruthless global scam,” a “nuisance,” “nefarious,” “more like the mafia than a religion,” and “horny” (alright, we’re kidding about that last one. Still, Ortega’s article has us horny as all get-out).

To his credit, Ortega is no Ronny-come-lately when it comes to providing–gasp–actual news coverage of the cult. No, he’s never pussyfooted around the issue. And that says a lot, considering Ortega has been covering in the news since at least 1999 and still hasn’t ended up dead at the Fort Harrison–or in one of Hubbard’s 600 volcanoes. His current article is more delicious than even the most delicious of birthday caek. But don’t take our word for it; see for yourself. And you know? It’s about effing time.

In other $cn news, cult Grand Poobah DM has been a’courting yet another celebrity couple to the “church” to help repair its public image. While the term “beyond repair” is apparently quite the misunderstood for Miscaviage, no one can fault (flunk?) him for giving up too easily. No, the current couple isn’t Will & Jada or even Forest Whittaker and his wife–it’s Beckham. Srsly. Oh, and his Spice Girl co-thetan, Posh. Dave, can you say EPIC FAIL?

And, finally, the clam cult has finally made it to the big stage in the final “meta-play” of “The Scariest.”
