Is Chris Shelton Waking Up From His Anti-Scientology Fever Dream?

chris shelton waking upIt happens to all of us.

There is a point where you wake up from the hysteria of being an anti-Scientologist and say to yourself Hey Wait a Minute!”

It’s that point which is exactly like when you woke up from all the untrue things in Scientology: As an Ex, you wake up from all the untrue things in Anti-Scientology, as well.

The conspiracy theories of Scientology’s political tentacles that can “torpedo” FBI investigations, the superstitious belief in the POWER of the MIND CONTROL, the super-dooper RELEVANCE of decades-old, yet continually repeated atrocity stories like Lisa McPherson – all begin to collapse on you, just like your beliefs in engrams, alien civilizations, and cleared planets collapsed on you when you started waking up from Scientology.

And just like when you got out of Scientology, as an Ex-AntiScientologist, you don’t quite know where your feet are at.

That’s where Chris Shelton appears to be headed as he realizes that Tony Ortega has been sitting on the story that the RPF was disbanded 4 or 5 years ago. What is clear that he hasn’t realized yet is the degree to which evidence like this exposes Tony Ortega’s trolling and manipulation of him and other Ex-Scientologists. And yes, I know. Mentioning the fact that Tony Ortega has been manipulating people seems to be a PRO-Scientology stance.

Actually, no. It’s a pro TRUTH stance, without regard to “sides” or “tribes”. It’s the point any Ex of any religion tries to sort out and get to – what is the truth? Stop worrying about who might benefit from what factual or counterfactual information. Drop the self-righteous crusade. What are the facts and where do they lead? No matter which side benefits and which side is harmed?

That’s coming soon for lots of people, as more and more Ex-Scientologists begin to realize the bankruptcy of the ideas of the Anti-cult movement in trying to explain to you your own personal experiences in Scientology – or any minority religion they call a “cult”.

In Chris’s case, it’s kind of painful to watch, but it’s instructive nonetheless. Exes need to see the process of other Exes waking up and realizing that Anti-Scientology contains many incredibly damaging thoughts, emotions and behaviors to their own self-interests – on top of the fact that they’re false.

In this video, Chris Shelton’s message devolves into rambling blather as he realizes his anti-Scientology Crusade is based on hysterical cognitive distortions, ignorance of how the real world works & manipulative trolling by other vengeful anti-Scientologists.

At the end, he pulls out of his spiraling nosedive with a plea for kindness and getting involved in social betterment causes.

Probably a good career move.

Sorry for my unsympathetic tone here. I’ll probably come out of this fascination of mine after more water has rolled under the bridge. But right now, especially in the case of Chris Shelton, it’s so satisfying for me to see this evolution.

Who would have thought that after 3 Seasons of Scientology and the Aftermath, Anti-Scientology is falling apart?

Once Anti-Scientology is out there, really out there for all the world to see, it is clearer than ever that there is no there there.

I’m glad to see that Chris, and hopefully many other Exes, are on their ways to accomplishing a less hysterical view of Scientology and of their own past selves as Scientologists.

      • That I’m not sure that is what is happening. I don’t think Chris has changed, I’m thinking he is simply trying to LOOK like he has. One of the hallmarks of the Matron of Ex-scientologists is that it is thought that if they get “caught” at something that they just shift PR-wise and that takes care of that. It doesn’t, but that’s what I have observed is part of the modus operandi of these slimy types. Another hallmark is to present this so-called “evolution” of their poster children, that one has been going on for a while now.

        Plus, I guess I don’t agree with your characterization of that Scientology isn’t a part of *any* conspiracy, if that’s what you’re saying. However, that is limited to a very few scientologists, certainly not most of the rank-and-file or the public.

        • I’m specifically saying that the most reasonable explanation for the termination of the fbi investigation in 2010 is that nothing prosecutable was found.

          Any claim by the hysterical anti-scientology ninny triumvirate of Tony Ortega, Chris Shelton or Jeffrey Augustine that scientology torpedoed the investigation has absolutely no evidence and is a conspiracy theory which keeps their ninnie-hood afloat.

          There are many such evidence-free conspiracy theories promoted by the triumvirate ninnie-hood, such as why there are no studies by the American Psychiatric Association on brainwashing or mind control (because cults have a lot of money) or why the LA County District Attorneys office has not charged Danny Masterson with rape (because the church raised money for the LAPD Hollywood Division)

          What’s amazing is how many anti-scientologists simply swallow these conspiracy theories and never question them, or even ask for the evidence which supports them.

          • Oh, I get it. You’re talking the conspiracy THEORIES. I missed that before. (smacks forehead). I call those conspiracy porn. They are about as conspiratorial (and intelligent) as “Hey baby. You’re so HOT!”.

          • The statement they have out there along the lines of “scientology torpedoed the investigation” is misleading. Scientology by itself doesn’t have the power to shut down such an investigation, money or no money. But the Attorney General does. IF there was such a shutdown conspiracy it wouldn’t be because of “scientology” omnipotence. The omni shoe would be on a different foot than theirs.

            Same idea goes for the other two you mention. I’ll say it again, scientology BY ITSELF does not have that kind of power.
