Skeptic Tank!

Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L.

Bah! Humbug! Here's what Judge Breckenridge had to say about the lying thug cult back in 1982 when it tried to sue Gerald Armstrong: "In addition to violating and abusing its own members' civil rights, the organization over the years with its 'Fair Game' doctrine has harassed and abused those persons not in the Church whom it perceives as enemies. The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid. . . . this bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder LRH. The evidence portrays a man who has been virtually a pathological liar when it comes to his history, background, and achievements. The writings and documents in evidence additionally reflect his egoism, greed, avarice, lust for power, and vindictiveness and aggressiveness against persons perceived by him to be disloyal or hostile." OTOH, "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor." (Exodus 20:16) "There are six things which the Lord hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil, A false witness who utters lies, And one who spreads strife among his brothers." (Prov. 5:16-19) "But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleaure rather than lovers of God; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; and avoid such men as these." (2 Tim. 3:1-5) "Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves. You will know them by their fruits." (Matt. 7:15-16) Fatty's character speaks for itself. >" I humbly submit to you that nothing could be further from the truth. I >am living proof of that. In my experience with Mr. Hubbard's technology, I >have been able to confront and eliminate things that have caused ruin in >my life. As a result, I am able to be more ethical, more responsible, more >creative, and more successful in my Christian walk and Christian ministry. More ethical . . . ? Hell! At any church I've ever attended, the "Rev. Alfreddie Johnson" would have been thrown out on his ear for heresy. >" Next to the teachings of God through his son and the Prophets, it may be >the greatest gift you have ever given to yourself and to mankind." Better yet, give 'em all a copy of the Bible and _A Piece of Blue Sky_, and let 'em decide for themselves whom they're going to believe. Shame on you, Rev. Johnson. Lying heretic. -- -=Scott A.
