South Park Blowback for Corporate Scientology

reference: Corporate Scientology Targets South Park

Tony Ortega has provided the second installment of Corporate Scientology’s Operation South Park at the Village Voice website: Scientology’s South Park Investigation: To Send In A Young Mole

According to an original Corporate Scientology Office of Special Affairs (OSA, terror and harassment arm of Corporate Scientology) memorandum OSA cased the offices of South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone in April 2006.

Within a couple weeks the following text appeared in an OSA Intelligence Office Daily Report (a report Chairman of the Board of Corporate Scientology David Miscavige reads avidly, daily):

OSA Invest DR 3 May 06

SOUTH PARK: A PI met with a young filmmaker who recently graduated college (who was a student of Eric Sherman).  The filmmaker recently did an interview with Lloyd Kaufman, a friend of Trey Parker and Matt Stone.  He has agreed to assist to establish some comm lines in the South Park Studios and to try and get intelligence on their plans with regard to Scientology.  He is going to approach Kaufman to see if Kaufman can get him an introduction to Parker and Stone and either possibly get a job as an intern there or as a writer (he has seen every episode of South Park).

The Eric Sherman referred to is a long-time OSA operative in the Hollywood Community.  Here is his website:  http://ericsherman.com/

Ortega reports that he has been attempting to reach Sherman to no avail.   You can bet OSA has Sherman under very tight control; he will either never surface or will issue a blanket denial if media interest persists.  Sherman believes his immortal future depends upon playing nice with OSA and David Miscavige.

In the meantime, corporate Scientology’s chairman David Miscavige has called the dogs out on Mike Rinder who is a former Corporate Scientology insider who witnessed much of what Mr. Ortega and I have posted over the past two days. Rinder is in the United Kingdom for an important speaking engagement.  Here is a report from a gentleman named Alex Castillo who met with Rinder in London today:

Today I met Mike Rinder in London. He wanted to take his friend to Buckingham Palace to see the famous change of the Royal Guard, so we three agreed to meet at a nearby tube station. The meeting had been arranged via Mike’s email and Sam’s phone. And what do you know? by the time I arrived at our meeting place a “PI” was already stationed near where Mike and his friend were waiting for me!! This just shows that the invasion of privacy being carried out under Miscavige’s orders is alive and well.
After we met and had given each other a big hug (filmed or photographed by the “PI”), we made our way to the Palace, followed by the PI. As we stood in front of Buckingham Palace waiting for the show to start, this poor guy just stood there looking bored and taking pictures. Mike was friendly and polite with him, even said something to him. I was friendly too, I smiled and asked him to smile while I took a picture of him holding his camera. He actually posed for the picture and smiled!! Later on another PI showed up with a bigger camera with a big, long microphone and all, and made a point of aiming it at us at close range. When the change of the guards finished, we walked a few blocks towards Trafalgar Square with the intention of going into a cafe. They followed all the way. The three of us went into a busy cafe, they stayed at the front door and didn’t notice that the cafe had a side door into another street, so we just calmly walked out of the side door, walked a few paces down the street, went into another cafe and disappeared from their view! From the window of the second cafe where we went in I saw one them running to the corner and frantically looking around trying to find us, but they never did, so me and Mike and his friend were able to sit down, have a coffee and enjoy our converstation undisturbed by these poor guys who are getting paid to be “Private Eyes”. Me, having heard so much about what these people do, had never experienced such bizarre situation and I must say that I am still in two minds about wheather I should laugh (I must say it WAS funny) or feel shocked by the sheer stupidity of what Miscavige is spending millions of dollars of parishioners hard earned money on. In any case, I had a great time conversing with Mike after almost 30 years of not seeing him in the flesh.
So, this experience today tells me: 1) Miscavige is still ordering the hacking of phones and emails and 2) He’s spending Church of Scientology money just to harrass his “enemies”. I know this is no news to anyone here, but I thought I would add more confirmation of it. Maybe South Park would be interested in this episode??

Alex

Seems Miscavige’s propensity to create blowback knows no bounds.

  1. Phone hacking has recently been a huge story in the UK. Maybe the Daily Mail would be interested in the COS’ antics..

  2. to the photographer who kept taking photos at Sam’s: what you were doing was illegal and in breach of right to privacy (aside from the Protection from Harassment Act as you were asked to stop, yet you continued)

    You were taking photos of minors. If I ever see any photos of my 5 month old daughter published either in print or on the internet, I promise you, you will feel the full force of the law. And more to the point, why are you taking photos of children? There are certain lines you just don’t cross, and involving BABIES definitely shows your lack of humanity and judgement. Please destroy any digital images pursuant to the Data Protection Act of my baby and to think that you have her photo in your camera makes me feel ill.

    I would be grateful if anyone finds any photos of a baby at Sam’s to please let me know. She was the only baby there, so distinguishable.

    On the positive side, it was lovely to see you all!

    • Very disturbing. If the Daily Mail isn’t interested in cult’s phone hacking, they should be interested in their PI’s taking photos of minors and a baby. This crosses the line into very creepy territory.

  3. Marty,
    This one takes the grand prize – Mr. Miscavige thinking that he can get away with placing a “mole” in a popular national comedy company.

    Ancient Buddhist proverb for Mr. Miscavige:

    “A fool who knows his foolishness is wise at least to that extent, but a fool who thinks himself wise is a fool indeed. ”

    May all moles be well and happy!
    GMW

  4. It may well be true that Rick Sherman “believes his immortal future depends upon playing nice with OSA and David Miscavige.” But I would have to believe that after this memo appears, his current-life consulting business could take a big hit.

    Who in Hollywood would hire the guy for consulting and advice after spending two minutes with Google turns up all sorts of interesting stuff about the OSA connection, thanks to your posts and the Village Voice articles? Would you want to risk telling Sherman anything that could be used against you in the future after finding out that Sherman attempted to parlay his Hollywood relationships into blackmail on Parker and Stone?

    Tough spot to be in: try to save your “immortal future” by being an OSA puppet at the cost of preventable negative PR footbullets that decimate your current income. Oops.

    • I would *love* to hear his response when a potential employer asks him, “Eric, I’d like to hire you, but before I make my offer to you, you have to explain one thing to my satisfaction: What is OSA and what does your affiliation with it mean? Before you answer, know that I took the liberty in look ing it up for myself.” lol

  5. The PI was wise to stay outside. English people don’t like that sort of people in their pubs.

    • it would be great if you could post the pics of these PI’s here [or email me them, I’ll be happy to ‘out them’ on twitter, my blog etc…. this kind of thing could possibly trend

  6. Its illegal to do photographs without permission.
    I understood the meeting at Sams place was great. Sorry I couldn’t attend. As for again and seen Confirmation of the on going tactics of DM and harrassment. It just adds to the growing list. What on earth does this actually gain except adding to the misuse of practioners funds. Its About time its known ahead some how for public entering, those that are groomed for services to know that what they pay, and what exactly it supports
    Its lack of knowledge of such dishonesty of misuse and blindness to the tatics and mispresentation as to what the current Church is.

    • Li'll bit of stuff

      HI Hadley

      You are” right on the money. ” Marty has made numerous refs., to the necessity to ” crank up one’s confront of EVIL a couple a couple of notches .” Most people are hesitant, if not wary of believing that anyone could be capable of such heinous acts of criminality, brutality blatant theft and fraud, whilst appearing to be the front line in “Saving the planet” and a host of other “worthy” causes masqueraded in a “global onslaught” of glossy magazines and promo, designed to “MAKE YOU REACH”. I recommend author Janet Reitman’s book ” Inside Scientology” While presenting a riveting, yet surprisingly unbiased account of the events leading up to the present {published 2010} one comes away with a distinct impression of having met the living personification of EVIL unlike anything you might have imagined

      much luv
      Li’ll bit of stuff

  7. When you’re throwing dirt, you’re the one who loses ground. But keep digging please, you’ll reach China soon!

  8. Oh man, if South Park stared writing into their episodes random instances of SCN PI’s following the kids around, recording them, digging through trash…dude, they could have SO much fun writing things for Cartman to do to those guys. They could write the squirrel busters into some episodes…it would be HILARIOUS television. It woould be an un-ending source of comedy.

    • Yes, it would be HILARIOUS television. Its good solid material when it comes to buffoonery. Though what could they possibly contribute to make it any more ridiculous than it already is?
      That would be the only reason they’d pass it up—nothing to contribute.
      It stands on its own absurdity.

  9. culpae poenae par esto

    Factually OSA has barely evolved from what the GO had become in it’s later days. OSA investigates EVERY person, company, group, religion, and on and on that has anything bad to say about Scientology and not just the main people but the friends, family and co-workers of any such “attacker”. OSA always looks for a “chink in the armor” in which to defeat it’s enemies and their end product is the complete nullification of said attacker by any means short of hiring hit men (though I wouldn’t put it passed DM).

    In the mid 1990′s OSA had investigated MTV, Nickelodeon and Viacom because MTV was to air a story on cults. There are dozens of other such examples in their hidden vaults (the one with holes in it that keep ending up on the internet).

    That IAS war chest funds these silly investigations that, when found out about, really just makes Scientology look bad. Most people aren’t smart enough to differentiate between corporate Scientology and LRH’s philosophy and just damn the whole thing. OSA is blinded by David Miscavige’s greed and stupidity. It should take that “think for yourself” slogan and start practicing.

    • It is annoying to have to look up a latin phrase when someone uses it for their screen name. I looked up yours, it means, “Let the punishment fit the crime,” but it would be nicer if you would explain it yourself so I and a hundred people don’t have to look it up. Just sayin….

  10. Seems POB is hell bent on making his role model, Caligula, look like a angelic choir boy.

    On a historic note, Caligula’s nick name was Little Boots. Ha.

  11. “Blowback”. One could hardly find a word more apt to describe the state the Scientology organization is currently in, and the effects that its common public is subject to.

  12. Hopefully there will be an inquiry on the Congressional level in regards to the church refusal to pay back money on account.

    This is seriously so blatantly unreligious, cruel, and immature.

    The church still refuses to pay back my money on account.

    But they will—- they have to.

    • Brian, It took me a year, several legal threats of my saying I would hire an attorney, and by month 9, I ended up writing to the Attorney General of my state (cc’ed to the CoS). While the AG did nothing, and said as much in a followup letter to me, I think the pressure was put on at that point and the CoS finally paid the money 3 months later. It was in the mid-five figures.

    • Brian Culkin.

      Watching Eyes | February 4, 2011 at 7:45 pm | Reply
      Marty, what you wrote about the contract being violated between the PC & cult (my paraphrase) is so true. Anyone can guess my next thought. A contract violation means………you may want to get your money back. So, once again in it’s updated & revised form, here’s the info:
      Trying to get a Refund / Repayment?
      For the IAS here’s one to use in CA.
      http://ag.ca.gov/charities.php
      http://ag.ca.gov/charities/eri.php#Location:SearchResults
      Plug in their EIN number, just above the “search” button to get the exact name they go by. It’s very hard to find the name otherwise.
      EIN number: 521840679
      This complaint has to be printed out & mailed via the US Mail. Do it.
      Note: If you were regged in Florida for IAS monies, I’d suggest you write to the two agencies below and skip Calif. Make sure you let them know that IAS doesn’t appear to be registered in FL despite raking in millions from their offices within the state.

      For Flag or the Ship there are two agencies you can write to. Both are in Florida.
      1. This one is under the State Attorney Gen’s office, Dept of Consumer Services, Bureau of MEDIATION & ENFORCEMENT.
      http://www.800helpfla.com/complnt.html
      Under Consumer Complaint Form click on “online form”. With this one you can submit it online and attach any docs.
      Note: when you fill in this form, under each question, every time you add in another line of info it shrinks the print. By the time you’re done anyone reading it will need a magnifying glass. The best thing is to do is write on the form referring them to your attached complaint.
      Also, the form asks when you paid. If it’s a real old date, the form might not take it. Put today’s date and explain in your attachment.

      2. The other one is the Pinellas County Consumer Affairs agency.
      http://www.pinellascounty.org/consumer/
      This is a good agency and is in the same county as Flag and the ship office.

      Don’t worry about invoices that you may no longer have. The cult has the records and will send you copies as your cycle moves along. If you find unauthorized debits, you’ll request that money be given back to you.

      Know this, you will get your repayment although sometimes they drag their heels. If no response from the cult after 3 – 4 weeks, file a complaint with the agencies above. The cult HATES being on the radar of a gov agency. The key thing here is to get these requests into a gov file which is why you need to file with one of the above two agencies.

      When writing to the gov agencies don’t write volumes. That will only confuse the gov worker who is really trying to help you. The last thing you want is to give them the problem of trying to figure out what you’re saying. Persist. Stay light. Have fun.

      • Pat (formerly Watching Eyes)

        The AG’s office in Florida really tried to be helpful. They would have mediated between the parties. For example, between myself and the Ship. The problem came in when the C of S realized they could refuse to participate in mediation. This left the AG’s office with nowhere to go. So now what?

        I’ve thought this over and think it’s time for a new strategy. To anyone trying in vain to get your money back I think it would be worth your time to phone your US Senator. Each state has two; pick one and call their office. You’ll be asked to follow it up with a written report but by calling first you’ll know who in the Senator’s office to send the info to. They love to help their constituents.
        If enough people start doing this, it could put a lot of attention on the cult and who knows where it could lead. What would Miscavige do if he were ordered to appear in front of a Senate hearing? Think about that one!

      • Karen- I have done that over 6 months ago and they still will not send my repayment.

        Any more advice?

      • Any advice for those who were regged elsewhere in the world? Anyone?

  13. The criminality of hacking Emails and phones continue.
    But now it is reported on the WEB almost in real time.
    London Cops were seduced and took personal favors in 2006.
    The seduction and infiltration into “making friends inside the law.”

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-417782/Police-officers-accepted-gifts-Church-Scientology.html

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2006/nov/22/freedomofinformation.religion

  14. And David Miscavige’s organization has the audacity to pretend it supports Human Rights and ‘help’. The corporate Scientology business even puts out videos touting “The Right To Privacy” — disguise and smoke screen for what really goes on! What more proof is needed?

    One needs only to read this account (with YEARS of such stalking, harassment, and illegal invasion of privacy on record) and then compare it to the corporate $cientology ads: Right To Privacy (Caveat, the link is a Scientology website promoting their advocay of Right to Privacy (!). It no doubt has cookies and other scripts)
    http://www.scientology.org/videos/category/…rights/right-to-privacy.html

    Eric Sherman is doing the same in minature, offering to ‘help’ actors, screenwriters and filmmakers while in reality conducting duplicitous and treacherous activities… the ‘help’ he advertises on his web site, and with which he manipulated the young writer into infiltrating SouthPark (!) is the carrot-promise of career ‘success’. Celebrities are the “carrot” but in fact the decoy “Church” fails to help real artists and loyal staff; they are simply using the trademarks of Scientology as a smokescreen for conquest, oppression and greed operations.

    • Ah, here’s a corporate $cientology video pretending to support Right To Privacy. Does the reality behind the glossy curtain get any more duplcitous than this!?!? A PROVEN hacking, stalking, intimidation, fraudulent conquest operation DISGUISED AS A CHURCH! Right to Privacy?????

  15. Michael Fairman

    Just a note off the present topic:

    Mr and Mrs Will Smith are hosting a fundraiser for President Obama today in Los Angeles. Perhaps they can present copy of our petition to him.

    • Michael,
      Will and Jada Smith are both Scientologists and most likely David Miscavige is behind this whole hosting a fundraiser for Obama.

      • Will Smith must be very embarrassed to be a Scientologist.
        Or
        he understands what a career disaster it would be to have his name associated with it.
        Or
        He can only survive it if he can stay somewhat in the closet.
        It is career suicide if he steps off the cliff for the “Church”
        just like Tom Cruise did.
        TRUTH::::
        I think you are assigning too much Credit to Miscavige.
        Look how the Department of Homeland Security ran away from an appearance from the “church.”

    • Obama’s PR team will need to start being a bit more cagey!,

  16. When order goes in, confusion blows off. You get more theta, more clarity, more understanding.

    Everything DM does seems to blow off more and more theta as he puts in more and more fixation. More entrapped theta. More enMEST.

    He’s got this big war chest and all it is is enMES, used to enturbulate.

    At the highest levels, affinity, reality and communication comprise theta. They comprise understanding. And way up, affinity is communication. communication is reality. Reality is affinity. The three are all the same thing basically. All operating in harmony. Every communication has a purity/harmony of reality and affinity up high; every reality has a purity of communication and affinity; every affinity has a purity of communication and reality.

    It’s when you go down tone that affinity, reality and communication begin to unravel and separate. They become disharmonious, each clashing with the other. You get communications fighting reality and affinity. You get rejected and nullified and refused and inhibited and enforced realities, affinities and communications. Smash, bang. Turmoil.

    Up high, the dynamics are so harmonious, they function as one. The lower you go in tone, the more dynamics begin to clash against one another, each fighting or avoiding the others. You get third dynamics fighting or avoiding third dynamics. First dynamics at odds with first dynamics. You get a person’s dynamics fighting themselves.

    Up high, Prime Cause is Prime Effect. Cause is effect. Both in harmony. An inseparable event.

    All this crap from DM is just more and more disharmony. More and more dynamics fighting dynamics. More and more affinity, reality and communication at odds.

    The only way to “escape” from this hellish universe is to bring more and more understanding, to bring about greater and greater harmony.

    And look what we get from this fool–all in the name of “clearing the planet” and “making OTs.” Talk about a sociopath’s dream.

    Perhaps, the advantage of bringing about harmony of affinity, reality and communication might dawn on the agents and fence sitters reading this. Some day. Maybe.

    The invidiousness of all this crap.

  17. And I thought the Eric Sherman posting here was THE Eric Sherman (the film-maker) and had gone Independent. I guess there were/are a couple different Eric Shermans in Scientology…

  18. I just got an email from the Freewinds touting their latest seminar on how to create positive PR. Wow! Wonder if they have any clue of just how bad their PR actually is. I guess I better sign up quick before all the seats are taken.

    • Corporate Sccientology does fabricate ‘good PR’, or at least slick, expensive, polished PR (ads, glossy brochures, websites) … the problem is their actions contrradict it and shout out quite a different story.

      Corporate Scientology is not in the business of what it pretends to sell. The actions of David Miscavige’s company, the consequence of incompetent, unenlightened misapplication of the original applications of Scientology, has globally outshouted the PR spin. The “church’s” PR is worse than B.S., it’s BAIT. There is no integrity between their PR and their behind-the-scenes agendas and operations.

      • S D

        I honestly think sometimes, that David Miscavige thinks that PR is actually like “whitewash”. It is used to cover up things that make you look bad. He also seems to think that it is for “getting what you want” no matter what lies you have to tell to get it.

        To Miscavige”

        PR = twisting the facts to make things seem better than they are.
        PR = saying whatever it takes to GET MONEY out of people.
        PR = made up things to make you look better.
        PR = being able to say one thing and getting away with doing something else.
        PR = making himself look like he “really is somebody”, when basically, on his own merits, nobody would invite him to a funeral.
        PR = paying to have “rich or important friends”
        PR = duping people.
        PR = LIES!
        David Miscavige IS his own definition of PR.

        Eric S

        • WindWalker, Indeed, it is obvious that Miscavige the self-proclaimed “leader” of the trademark-shilling “Church” gets PR wrong like most other things he twists to be their diametric opposite. One can almost see the strings connected to the robotic “Spokespersons” as they flap their lips to Miscavige-issued lies. The deception ranges from blatantly untrue denials (“veryone’ else is lying!”) (“there is no disconnection”) “(there are no beatings”) (“there is no fraud”) (“the Squirrel Busters are acting on their own”) (“look at all the expansion”) (“lost works of Hubbard found”) (“the corporation has ‘fixed’ the messed up Hubbard books) to aggressive CONTRIVED mouth-frothing button-pushing accusations (totally NOT so clever and abuse of the Tone Scale) … yikes, Corporate Scientology is a Public Relations *mess*! Why? Because eventually when something is rotting to the core, no amount of Rose N Daisy deodorizer can cover up the stench.

          • The utter irony of the debacle impostor the “Church of Scientology” has become since being taken over by the trademark exploiters is that Scientology itself — i.e., the analysis of communication components and the mechanics of human upset — siimply works at great relationships. What better “PR” is there than truth communicated, than understanding, good will, TRUST and well-being?

        • Hey, speaking of lies…. from E! Online:
          http://www.eonline.com/news/did_scientology_go_gunning_south_park/271142

          “A spokesperson for Scientology says, “The Church at no time authorized any of the actions suggested in the statement.”

          They are so obvious! Totaly justified pathological Lies are the trademark of Scientology Corp.

        • Grendel's Mother

          Not just DM, WindWalker – this is standard operating procedure for his OT Asses and and other minions these days! Eligibility for OT7 is ability to use DM’s PR to screw others and then walk away.
          But DM;s PR doesn’t promotoe good works – it covers up the corpses. But putrefaction is occurring, and man those dead bodies are starting to smell!

    • Is there mandatory attendence by all COS management?

  19. hate to say this but photographing people in public for non commercial purposes is not illegal in the uk. persistently photographing an individual may constitute harassment. photographing kids would be illegal if there was a sexual element. if i’m wrong please give the specific uk legal acts. why can’t i type capitals in this field?

  20. Li'll bit of stuff

    Greetings DP very succinctly told. The Sickness of this man’s warped view of this planet’s inhabitants {read : MY FUTURE SLAVES -ALL OF THEM !!!} is jarring and unsettling to any sane observer. The guy is certifiable !!! One can say with absolute certainty, that just like the dictators before him ; Mussolini, Hitler, Saddam and now Gaddaffi, ” YOUR END WILL BE GRUESOME –YOUR ACTIONS HAVE GUARANTEED IT!!” The tens of thousands of decent people whom YOU have tortured and persecuted will see retribution visited upon YOU !!! { Good old OVERT / MOTIVATOR SEQUENCE WILL GET YOU !!! How utterly irrevocably insane is this guy ? Huh ? Much luv, Li’ll bit

  21. Mike and Christie,
    Hello! We’re certainly looking forward to hearing how your speaking engagement went! And dodging the PIs – makes me laugh especially when it’s done right under their noses! I also appreciate the documentation Alex. Each time it’s done the time, place, form and event of it is valuable.

  22. Alex,

    Wonderful to see you.

    Your words perfectly capture the essence of you: honest and genuinely caring about others and someone who remains a staunch ally and friend of LRH.

    I look forward to seeing you again amigo.

    Mike

    • Mike, it was GREAT to see you too mate. In my mind our getting together was long overdue and I am happy that we managed it while I am still steady on my pins! I enjoyed every minute of it, except , of course the invasive presence of the PIs following our every move and practically shoving their cameras and microphone in our faces. I am still shaking my head in amazement because I still fail to comprehend how these expensive and nonsensical acts can possibly contribute effectively to Miscavige’s “defence” against the “enemies of the church”. I could only think of them as a couple of annoying flies buzzing around us. Nothing more. But we found our fly swatter in the form of the Cafe’s side door that these idiots didn’t notice ha!

      I only have one piece of advice for you Mike. Next time you walk a long distance in the company of elderly people, walk a bit slower g..d.. m.. t! :))

      Yes, I hope we’ll meet again.

      Alex

  23. On the other hand, I gotta admire DM.
    I don’t think anyone else is capable of generating the 10′s of thousands of internet hits that verify what indies have been saying for years now.
    Hats off! :)

  24. From REUTERS news service … OSA’s sinister agendas get the spotlight, as do the inane insipid “Squirrel Busters” who tap dance for the $cientology puppeteer, Chairman, er, Pope David Miscavige.

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/10/24/us-southpark-idUSTRE79N78Z20111024

  25. CONGRATULATIONS MARTY !!!
    In addition to Tony Ortega’s “Village Voice”, New York Daily News, Christian Post, Business Insider, Entertainment Weekly (Blog) and the Washington Post have now picked OSA investigation and tricks on South Park’s Parker and Stone in Investigation

    Now if we could get it on DRUDGE report !

  26. He drives me into a winning valence everytime ;)

    Compared to him everyone is a angel

  27. About three years ago, I wrote a South Park episode that I hand delivered to Matt and Trey at the yearly TAM conference in Vegas. They took the document, but it never aired. I understand that they will rarely accept unsolicited scripts. The star of the episode was Penn Jillette, who as played as an ape.
    I think we should collect ideas for a South Park episode starring David Miscavige. I’m visualizing DM trying to impress the four South Park kids with various diminutive toys such as a high end chrome tricycle, with POB engraved on the steering nut. Help me out here, let’s write an episode of South Park.

  28. Is there really any legitimate reason why the German government should let anyone connected with the church of scientology into their employ?

    Is there any reason why any corporation should be prevented from discriminating against members of the church of scientology?

    If there were reasons in the past why members of the church of scientology should have rights and not be discriminated against, those reasons are long gone. An employer has the right to know about one’s criminal or drug background before employing them. The revolting abuse of rights by members of the church of scientology put these people in the same category.

    On what grounds should we trust them?

    This is gross.

    • Well, “members of the church” is a pretty broad category

    • What country do you live in and what country are you talking about? A corporation practising employment discrimination against a person because of their religious affiniliation? I don’t live in the USA at the present time, but as an American I can tell you that the TRUE values of my country do not condone religious bigotry (of course we have had it and still do, but our values project getting RID of it, not INCREASING it). A person who calls himself a Scientologist should not be any more discriminated against because of the practices of their church hierachy than a Catholic because of its Pope or Priests’ actiions re: sexual abuse or a Muslim because of the actions of people who commit terror in the name of Islam. Of course, any individual Muslim, Catholic or Scientologist might certainly bear some responsibility for the actions of their religion (whether by their agreement or financial support, etc), but this still does not condone discrimination against people because of their particular religion, race or ethnic background.

      • Not talking literally here, Joe. Simply, by their actions, why should anyone trust them?
