    SP=suppresive person AKA non-believer.

    i was hoping the reporter on the today show was going to go farther than he did (at least during the part that i saw). he made it seem like people are unhappy with CO$ because they didn't get what they were promised not because it is a crazy cult. he also didn't say anything about the fact that members must spill all secrets which makes them afraid to leave when matt asked why certain A-listers are still involved in scientology.

    ^^ I'm guessing that they didn't mention that they send retrieval teams after anyone who does manage to make a break for it? Or that their RPF programme is nothing more than a prison camp?

    At the every least, even if no criminal charges are filed, they should remove the CO$ status as a church.

    The Time Josh Brolin Watched John Travolta Heal Marlon Brando With His Scientology Powers





    Lawrence Wright's 26-page expose on Scientology for The New Yorker has everything you want in a theatrical cunt gay drama including human-trafficking charges, Tommy Girl tantrums, slave beatings by the hand of David Miscavige, a game of musical chairs set to "Bohemian Rhapsody" and blackmail. Lawrence's piece focuses a lot on film director and former high-ranking Scientologist Paul Haggis who checked out of L. Ron's house because they pretty much hugged and supported California's Prop 8.


    Paul and Lawrence both have serious stories and you should get into that shit if you've got the time. But the one I'm telling you now comes from Josh Brolin. Josh tiptoed into the barley water gutter for a few seconds in a moment of "real desperation." Josh quickly jumped out after he realizing that he prefers his CRAZY with a lot more fun. But Josh walked away with this gem:
    Brolin says that he once witnessed John Travolta practicing Scientology. Brolin was at a dinner party in Los Angeles with Travolta and Marlon Brando. Brando arrived with a cut on his leg, and explained that he had injured himself while helping a stranded motorist on the Pacific Coast Highway. He was in pain. Travolta offered to help, saying that he had just reached a new level in Scientology. Travolta touched Brando’s leg and Brando closed his eyes. “I watched this process going on—it was very physical,” Brolin recalls. “I was thinking, This is really fucking bizarre! Then, after ten minutes, Brando opens his eyes and says, ‘That really helped. I actually feel different!’ ” (Travolta, through a lawyer, called this account “pure fabrication.”)
    Err. Does Josh realize that he witnessed John Travolta give Marlon Brando a handjob? I'd call it "fucking bizarre" too, but I'd also called it a "fucking handjob" instead of "this process."

    I guess nothing makes Thetans jump like jizz procured by the hand of a Travolta.

    I just read that tonight, it was very interesting. Scientology is such a major cult, even Paul Haggis admitted that at the end. It's pretty shocking how people are treated. I was more surprised at the allegations that Miscavige beats his employees.

    Default Paul Haggis vs The Church of Scientology

    Paul Haggis Vs. the Church of Scientology : The New Yorker

    The article is 26 pages long (from The New Yorker) but fascinating!

    Here is also an interview with Terry Gross on NPR by the author.
