    Then you must mourn the loss of the Australian Democrats then:

    "Keep the bastards honest!" Catchy slogan, right? :D

    They can blab their crap all they want - this is about real people with real issues, and they're finally being given a voice:

    Thank you Pat McGorry.

    What earlier cult does Scientology resemble?

    I would say none. Scientology is a terrifying chimera.

    re: Email the Australian Senate: For Great Justice!

    Scientology has some similarities with Satanic cults. Nancy Cartwright went on TV and said Scientology will help her to become God, Tommy Davis said it is about unleashing a person's God-like powers etc

    re: Email the Australian Senate: For Great Justice!

    I'm no historian, but off the cuff I'd say scientology simply has moar money than the usual cult. Bottom line, I really don't believe it is a cult at its core at all.
    It's a business that acts like a cult that pretends to be a religion.

    Said it before, when media puts it out under the Business Category, then we're getting somewhere.

    Done & Bump, Lets pull our fingers out aussies! get calling and emailing!!
  18. re: Email the Australian Senate: For Great Justice!

    I believe what Mr. Cyrus Brooks, Australian vice-president of Scientology is trying to say is this:

    L. Ron Hubbard's book: "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health" is actually a hmmm, errrrr, ummmmm religion, that's it!

    Well we successfully used religious cloaking to officially change, so yah, we be a religion, nshit, you bigots.

    The truth about Scientology's religious cloaking is revealed by Larry Brennan in this video of his affidavit.




    None of us, especially politicians who can really do something about it can turn a blind eye to all of this fraud and abuse.

    Yes, investigate, research, stop it, take an honest look at Scientology, help these abused members out.

    re: Email the Australian Senate: For Great Justice!

    maybe because you didn't put a comma inbetween religious and cult? Editors and mods can be demanding, but their hearts are in the right place. I am, as always, a clueless granny.

    That might be because in a pyramid scheme some of the people get some money back, but the money doesn't come from the top of the pyramid it is a small % of the money people at the bottom give to the people at the top.

    Quote Patrick McGorry:

    "I've certainly come into contact with people with mental illness who have sought help or assistance from the Church of Scientology, and from many other organisations," Professor Newman said.

    "In their contact with the Church of Scientology they've been discouraged from having appropriate treatment.

    "Some have been encouraged to cease taking psychiatric medication even when those might be indicated, and there has certainly been no attempt to actually get people in any reasonable form of alternate therapy.

    "This is not a trivial issue and I think for far too long, these sort of extremist views have hidden behind a group which describes itself as being an organised religion."


    That is the kind of backing we need!

    Adding a fifth key person to the list for us to contact.Senator Cory Bernardi: Senator for South Australia

    Party: Liberal Party of Australia
    Parliament Contact: Phone: (02) 6277 3278 Fax: (02) 6277 5783 [IMG]
    Email: senator.bernardi@aph.gov.au


    Senator Bernardi addressed the Senate proposal on Thursday last and is obviously concerned to protect the human right of freedom of religion.

    If ex-scientologists were to contact the Senator and tell their story, that may help him to reevaluate his position with respect to more narrow terms of reference.

    Xenophon was on the radio this morning and has just held a press conference with the Andersons (Four Corners) and a woman who was speaking for the first time about being coerced to have 2 abortions. Stay tuned to all stations, AusAnons - and use the phones!! (See the OP)
