  1. I see they've made note of posting history around the 'net. Congratulations. You must be doing it right to get that kind of attention.

    Two words. Two words that every single scientologist left today would cringe, or melt, or implode if they heard it, or get sent to Thought Patrol police if they thought it. But what if they were just getting breakfast, or shopping, driving off and see some guy on the corner holding out a paper, with 3 inch tall, black bolded lettering:

    Then, three more Full Page reports, Page 14A, 15A, 16A.

    Oh my oh my oh my: [my bold)

    "MONDAY: Why did the church's 'Super Power' building stand oddly vacant for six years?

    Plus: The statements Scientology made to the Internal Revenue Service about it's fundraising practices 20 years ago don't hold true today, former insiders say."

    [so far, most of the other full pages are text from Part 1 and Part 2]

    Yes, but what their understanding is that it's time to push harder. After all 'members of the public want to be "bled of their money. . . . If they didn't, they would be staff members eligible for free training."'
    (Eligible is a weasel-word. It doesn't mean that staff members actually get any.)

    When I see that I'm thinking of those recent Birmingham org email leaks, where there was clear evidence of interference with personal finances and a cavalier attitude towards debt and bankruptcy.

    I did like the reaction from the rondroids when I asked the name of the company that is supposed to be giving them annual audits. You'd think that would be a simple question to answer, right?

    I think it's the same auditors that David Miscavige uses for spiritual renewal.

    The best and perhaps most brilliant part of this Series is what is Not there. It's fairly certain the lawyers earned some credit for this, but partial kudos have to go to Tobin and Childs.

    Compassion. Concern. Charity. Comfort. Credibility. Contrition. Compassion. Take your pick.

    &quot;Scientology is 'enjoying a period of tremendous expansion during an economic downturn,' all supported by parishioner donations, Pouw said.&quot;

    I picked Expansion.
    That's on the list, right???
  26. PodPeople Member

    I found this odd. Karin Pouw might have slipped, or at least taken these lies to the very edge: [my bold]

    "Pouw said Knowledge Reports 'addressing only a parishioner's willingness to make donations would not be appropriate. [so is this admission that Knowledge Reports are written up on members who are not so willing to make donations?] However, in these instances it appears the authors of the Knowledge Reports noted other problems they believed should be addressed.'
    The church said that any parishioner can say "no" to a fundraiser without threat of 'internal justice action. It happens on a daily basis.'" [this Is a slip admitting fundraising rejections are happening daily]

    This means a Knowledge Report addressing a parishioner's willingness to make donations is inappropriate if it doesn't address additional complaints.

    Ask her what the purpose of a KR is, and what actions are taken on the "parishioner" to "handle" the issues. Need more foot bullets.

    Lol, thanks. Like I said on ESMB, if I thought I was important enough for them to give a damn about I might be worried.

    The Supreme Court has held that an organization that violates a fundamental federal public policy is not charitable and is thus not eligible for tax exemption

  35. This person is CEO and part owner of Pharmacyclics, a pharmaceutical development company. Their stock is publicly traded. It would probably not help the company's value if it were widely known that it's CEO donates so much money to Scientology.
