Xenuphobia


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.
