What have you found most effective, and least? I know all of us have talked to at least one person about Scientology who knew nothing about it. Sometimes with good responses, sometimes with negative. What's working for you? Location: USA My personal MOST positive experiences (usually in this order): Mentioning right off that I don't care what crazy beliefs they have, that it's that other religions can't write off their education but Scientologists can. [/*:m:3tmfft5g] Showing them the Times article and blogs on major publication's websites [/*:m:3tmfft5g] Showing them the funny pictures and silliness/subversive wording on Scientology's own website (usually specifically http://www.scientology.org/religion/pre ... pg010.html ) [/*:m:3tmfft5g] Explaining and showing them WISE, Narconon, and other front groups, how they operate, and showing them proof of who is part of WISE (strangely this seems to creep people out more than anything in my experience). [/*:m:3tmfft5g] Talking about how real religions don't fear critics even if they don't like them, since they have nothing to justify to anyone but themselves. [/*:m:3tmfft5g] Showing them Mark Bunker's videos of being harassed (specifically these two: this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8z5bqnd_iY) and then this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPol_m8wm8Y) [/*:m:3tmfft5g] Showing them enturbulation.org [/*:m:3tmfft5g] Showing them posts/videos from ex-Scientologists [/*:m:3tmfft5g] We are Anonymous. Expect us. "That's catchy!" "What do they do?"[/*:m:3tmfft5g] My personal LEAST positive experiences (and why): Showing them xenu.net and youfoundthecard.com (eep, I'm sorry! Some responses were good, but I had two that said it looked too unprofessional/ominous/conspiracy theorist and were surprised I believed anything on them) [/*:m:3tmfft5g] Making fun of the beliefs of Xenu/auditing (one person thought I was bigoted because I mocked the belief system that I just didn't agree with. Seriously.) [/*:m:3tmfft5g] Showing them the Anon videos (OK, see this worked great if I had someone who was upset at the church either before or after I talked to them, but was too "evil" by one account and "stupid and childish hatred" by another). [/*:m:3tmfft5g] You will probably all hate me for this, but the tagline of "We are Anonymous, We do not forgive, We do not forget." One person I talked to said it made Anonymous sound like "the cyber terrorists the Church claimed they were."[/*:m:3tmfft5g] So what are you all seeing? I figure streamlining is good, and btw, if even one person found it bad I considered it least (not IN)effective (it may not be a lot of people, but I don't talk to a lot of people about it so I looked at it as a percentage, which made it a much larger number). What I think should be identified are the things that don't put people off, and create a buzz--because the last thing that anyone wants is anyone aside from Scientologists to get defensive or put off.
