A Fool and Their Money

Who was it that said “A fool and their money are soon parted”? Well obviously the Church of Scientology (CoS) knows. Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson has just handed over $11.2 million to the CoS – Bart’s $11m scientology d’oh-nation | NEWS.com.au Entertainment. No wonder they’ve got so much money to harass and sue people.

The money is supposed to help the CoS rid the world of ‘psychological ills’. Hmmm, does anyone else see the irony in that?

  1. Some people are too crazy to be rich.

    Imagine the real good you could do with that kind of money.

  2. Really makes you shake your head in disbelief sometimes.
    Now imagine what a decent charity, such as the Salvation Army, could do with 11 million dollars.

  3. Wow. 11.2 million, huh?

    I can’t even begin to imagine.

  4. The real irony is that L. Ron Hubbard isn’t around to enjoy the irony of his hoax.

  5. MJ "revoltingpawn"

    That is crazy for sure. It’s just not cult religion’s but also mainstream churches that are rolling in the money from their followers. On Shadow Democracy we covered the Congressional hearing on the mega-churches awhile back…
