Scientologists desperately try to claim the internet protesters speaking out against their corrupt practices and manipulative schemes are religious bigots and make false accusations that we terrorize them as well as other religions. As with most of their claims of any significance, this is a BOLD FACED LIE TWICE OVER.
The first half of the lie is that we are not bigots. The Anonymous activists are merely unconventional devotees of truth and justice, who care deeply about basic human rights while refusing to tolerate a commercial enterprise selling a twisted charade that ultimately hurts people in more ways than one.
The second half of the lie is that we actually protest NO religions whatsoever because once you strip away all the lies and false promises that the Church of Scientology hides behind, the only thing left is few simple self-improvement techniques that are used as weapons of mass manipulation instead of being applied as mechanisms of self-help.
A religion is defined as "a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, usually involving devotional and ritual observances." Scientology was originally marketed as "the study of advanced dianetics: the science of mental health" albeit that didn't fly very well in the public eye since they purposely avoid scientific techniques, established clinical standards, and open forms academic study. Nowadays, the meaning of the word "scientology" is defined as meaning "the science of knowing how to know" which implies a methodology of learning how to think rather than a system of beliefs based on principles of faith.
"Scientology has opened the gates to a better World. It is not a psycho-therapy nor a religion. It is a body of knowledge which, when properly used, gives freedom and truth to the individual."
- L. Ron Hubbard, Original 1953 publication of "THE CREATION of HUMAN ABILITY", before it was edited out in the 1971 edition.
A real religion does not discriminate against non-believers or lesser abled people, nor manipulate support with a overly zealous commercial enterprise that employs dubious tactics. However, organized scientology promotes itself as "Making the Able More Able" and structures its entire organization into massive profit centers that hide behind an litigious corporation that has mastered the art of religious cloaking.
A truly humanitarian cause does not ignore the sentiments of charity and humility as a normal human emotion. Similarly, an honorable church does not rank the state of having no sympathy as one that carries a higher emotional value than truly heartfelt states of having pity for those less fortunate. A respectable system of beliefs does not belittle grief and fatal illness, nor discourage wanting to make amends for your past wrongs. Yet one of the core beliefs of scientology is the Tone Scale, which ranks ALL of these normal human emotions as less than desirable rather than as hallmarks of decency and goodness.
"There are only two answers for the handling of people from 2.0 down on the Tone Scale, neither one of which has anything to do with reasoning with them or listening to their justification of their acts. The first is to raise them on the Tone Scale by un-enturbulating some of their theta by any one of the three valid processes. The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow."
- L. Ron Hubbard, SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL, p. 170
An honest path to spiritual enlightenment does not include reprogramming the language you use, or using meditation to the point of sensory deprivation. Positive self improvement is not fostered by performing repetitive exercises that replace normal human reaction with confrontational behaviors. Yet the cult of scientology replaces the acts of prayer and reflection that are held sacred by god-fearing religions, with acts of mind numbing Training Routines that drill all of these negative impacts into their members psyche while fracturing their conscience mind in order to suppress basic human emotions. How can one be enlightened while being conditioned into a mindset that is unfeeling and unresponsive?
"There is no more ethical group on this planet than ourselves."
- L. Ron Hubbard, KEEPING SCIENTOLOGY WORKING ("KSW"), February 1965, reissued August 1980
A ministry that caters to a message of personal salvation is typically built on a foundation of charity, compassion, and forgiveness. Scientology sells salvation for a fee, deems the less fortunate as unworthy, plus retaliates against all dissent with vengeful accusations and total severance. Religion should be a vessel for greater understanding and acceptance, and not used as an amphitheater for fostering conspiracy theories nor used as a tool for parishioner manipulation.
With this many contradictions, delusions, and coercive tactics built into the infrastructure of the organization's practices, the end result is that the cult's system of beliefs is nothing but a conduit for mass corruption. This corruption has reigned unchecked for too many years. This corruption has festered and rotted while destroying the lives of too many former members and ex-scientologists for far too long. The rapidly growing list of victim testimonials can not be ignored; the suffering and loss can no longer be hidden.
"Therefore we really do have the remedy before the assault weapon is produced. Did you ever read poor old George Orwell's uh.. 1984? Yes, yes, that's wonderful. That would be, could be, the palest imagined shadow of what a world would be like under the rule of the secret use of Scientology with no remedy in existence."
- L. Ron Hubbard, Philadelphia Doctorate Course Tape 20 (Course Transcript)
The ongoing Chanology Protests has built a platform for the victims' voices to be heard and the stories of real life horrifying experiences is being told. The time has come to vindicate the victimized and acknowledge the evil empire lurking in our midst. The voices of the ex-scientologists say it all, and the many victims like those featured in the following YouTube Playlist is ultimately why many Anonymous Protestfags say "We Do Not Forgive. We Do Not Forget."
An ethical practice of religious beliefs should aim for the betterment of the basic human condition for all people; be it in this lifetime, the afterlife, or a person's next lifetime. Whereas the practices of organized scientology vehemently aims to victimize their members for the sole betterment of the organization with complete disregard for the moral standards of decency for humanity as a whole.
A sincere religion offers charitable acts of compassion and aid for victims of circumstances beyond one's control. Scientology only offers a path of deceptive practices that leads to a bridge of falsehood with the ultimate goal of making its victims sacrifice their livelihoods and sanity for the sake of protecting the greater evil of the organization's true nature.
Religious doctrines that are worthy of making self sacrifes for should generate hope and caring amongst believers, and not leave a wide trail of victims in it's wake like scientology does with their practices of immoral manipulation and depraved indifference to the basic human condition that mankind is not meant to be a perfect being.
Therefore, the victims of scientology prove beyond a doubt that the only bigotry the Anonymous protesters are guilty of is that of loathing the practices of an EVIL CULT that advocates an inhuman means to an end by using well honed dark arts of deception and coercion.
The truth of the matter is that the cult's systematic indoctrination processes represent the corrupt practices of a ruthless crime syndicate. It is not our cross to bear if the virtual lobotomy of their reactive minds renders them emotionally incapable of sorting out the difference between tenets of religious belief and a insidious interpretation of totalitarian principles.
