Typical cult tactics, get someone when they are vulnerable and tell them you can fix them. Brainwash them and take their money, by the time they are “cured” they are so indoctrinated they don’t know how to get out. Fortunately some people are able to realise they don’t “need” Scientology and leave.
Having several high profile ex-Scientologist speaking out lately, like Jason Beghe whose video was shown on Packer’s Channel Nine’s A Current Affairs TV show (as I reported here), and having world-wide protests by Anonymous, has shown the world that this cult has it’s problems.
I’m not the first to blog this today, not surprisingly L. Ron at The Frame Problem has already discussed Packer leaving Scientology. He was tipped off by GlossLip, a celebrity gossip site that doesn’t mind speaking out against Scientology. I would have been quicker but chores have to be done.
Today’s SMH Headline: See ya, Tom: Packer quits Cruise’s church must have been very heartwarming for Anonymous who are conducting more world-wide anti-Scientology protests today. Today’s protest is called OPERATION: FAIRGAMESTOP, for more information (e.g. locations) visit: WWW.ENTURBULATION.ORG
