Hysterical Things Anti-Scientologists Say…

Was Barney Fife an Anti-Scientologist?Barney Fife Catastrophizing Anti-Scientologist

He sure could have been, if you listen carefully to some of the whacked-out things that some Anti-Scientologists say about Scientology when they get themselves all worked up into a lather like Barney did.

Here’s just a few recent quotes from Anti-Scientologists on the subject of Scientology:

“They believe a 7-year-old girl should not shudder at being passionately kissed. That’s in Dianetics,”

– Leah Remini to the Hollywood Reporter Promoting the 2nd Season of “Scientology and the Aftermath”

“…To these academics, religious groups should be held blameless for any atrocity including murder, so that tells you a lot about their judgment and objectivity.”

– Chris Shelton Regarding Academics Who Study New Religious Movements

“Normalizing Scientology because of a “reformation” is a near criminal act given the criminality of Scn activities.”

– Chris Shelton Mar 26 2017 LiveTweet During CNN’s “Believer” with Reza Aslan

“Scientology will literally walk over the backs of the dead as it did following the Virginia Tech Massacre.”

– Jeffrey Augustine in a recent breathless letter to get more signatures on his IRS petition than Scientology’s

This is what I have as of this afternoon – just off the top of my head. I’ll be combing the Internet for more. And I’m sure more will be generated by Anti-Scientologists as the days, weeks, and months pass.

I’ll put all these quotes into the little sidebar widget I have created over there —–>>

If anyone should come across any additional breathless hysteria from Anti-Scientologists, copy the quote, who said it, and where, and put it in the comments sections below.

Let’s see if we can get to 20 quotes by next weekend!!!!!

Just kidding….

Happy hunting!

    In the spirit of Barney Fife, some off the cuff haiku:

    Who, what, are you guys?
    Anti-Scientologists
    Here to control you!

    Citizens arrest!!
    Stop your objectivity
    Think like us, OR ELSE!

    Bullet in pocket
    Akin to the black P.R.
    Anti-Scis publish

    Whipped into frenzy
    No time to pause, think things through
    You’re a machine cog

      LOL!

      Citizen’s Array-est!!!

      That’s what they would love to do to save the planet from Scientology. It’s really good we do not give them that power.

    what’s the point of your post?

    • Alanzo September 2, 2017 at 9:03 pm #

      To point out times where anti-Scientologists become so hysterical about Scientology that they say over-the-top things that are completely false.

      Can you see in each of these cases that the statement is so hysterical that it is false?

      • Scientologists don’t believe in pedopphilia like Leah says
      • Academics who study religions do not condone murder
      • Reza Aslan’s Believer episode on the Scn Freezone was not a “near criminal act”
      • And Scientologists never “literally” walked over any dead bodies

      Come on, Gib. You’re into spotting manipulative rhetoric – can’t you see this?

      You can spot it when Hubbard uses it, why not when anti-Hubbardists use it?

      • Gib September 3, 2017 at 4:11 pm #

        I only want to analyze Hubbard.

        • Alanzo September 3, 2017 at 4:54 pm #

          I learned when I got out of scientology to be loyal to the truth, rather than to be loyal to any person or group.

          I learned that.

          Didn’t you?

          • Gib September 3, 2017 at 7:32 pm #

            what person or group do you think I’m loyal to?

          • Alanzo September 3, 2017 at 7:37 pm #

            Why don’t you want to analyze the rhetoric of anyone else but Hubbard?

            Why not analyze the rhetoric of anti-scientologists, too?

          • Gib September 3, 2017 at 8:40 pm #

            Because, foremost, I’m anti Hubbard and his brain child known as scientology which was to produce a clear and then OT. And that is all. I was once a scientologist thinking I could achieve these states of clear and OT, never happened, never will.

            Why on earth would one wish to keep this so called applied religious philosophy going? It’s a false promise.

          • Alanzo September 3, 2017 at 8:49 pm #

            Examining the rhetoric of anti scientologists does not keep scientology going. It only exposes the manipulation in anti scientology.

            It keeps you from being manipulated by anti scientology rhetoric just like you were manipulated by scientology rhetoric before.

            If your allegiance is to the truth, rather than to a group like anti-scientologists, then you are less likely be led away from the truth – like you were led away from the truth by scientology.

            This is why I learned to be loyal to the truth and not to any person or group.

          • Gib September 3, 2017 at 9:08 pm #

            What truth are you talking about or trying to communicate?

          • Alanzo September 3, 2017 at 9:14 pm #

            The truth behind the manipulative rhetoric. The truth that the manipulative rhetoric hides.

            For instance, when Chris Shelton says that religious academics condone murder, to believe that would be a lie about religious academics, because the truth is that religious academics do not condone murder.

            Manipulative rhetoric hides the truth.

            But if you are loyal to anti-scientology, and not to the truth, you will not question Chris Shelton’s statement because you will be being disloyal to your group by doing so.

            This was the same mistake we made by not questioning scientology. We were too loyal to that group, rather than to the truth.

          • Gib September 3, 2017 at 9:25 pm #

            who knows Alanzo, I think it takes a long time for people to realize they have been scammed by Hubbard, after reading much counter. I do wish the major people speaking out would explain the so called states of clear and OT were bunk.

            It’s a hard thing to do to members still in.

          • Alanzo September 3, 2017 at 10:00 pm #

            I have a question for you, Gib.

            Have you ever considered that you might have just traded one set of beliefs for another?

            You traded a set of scientology beliefs for a set of anti-scientology beliefs. What if you were willing to question both sets of beliefs and retain everything you learned from both?

            Because the problem with leaving scientology beliefs and then getting stuck in anti scientology beliefs is that you lose everything you gained from your experiences in scientology. All those years in scientology are only wasted because you got stuck in anti scientology.

            The purpose of anti scientology is to deny the value of all your experience and everyone else’s in scientology.

            It’s a major waste of life experience.

            You gotta keep moving, keep questioning, and don’t get stuck.

            Since there are no Clears or OT’s as defined by Hubbard some people will forever feel they wasted spacetime pursuing the subject. Occultism and occult religions will be around as long as civilization exists on earth. Occultism in its basic sense is a belief in supernatural agencies. Angels, demons, spirit guides, ascended masters and even body thetans fit the bill.

          • Alanzo September 4, 2017 at 6:49 am #

            “Since there are no Clears or OT’s as defined by Hubbard some people will forever feel they wasted spacetime pursuing the subject.”

            That’s only one way of looking at it, and it’s an extremely wasteful way to see it, especially if you spent many years of your life in scientology and self-identifying as a scientologist.

            This view hides the real reasons you were a scientologist from yourself. And that occludes the real lessons that exist for you to learn.

            People were scientologists for all kinds of reasons that had little to do with anything Hubbard did or didn’t do. I believe that the anti-scientology mindset keeps a person from learning about himself and hides the value of what you learned while pursuing a subject like scientology.

            The hysterical rhetoric of anti scientologists can also keep you emotionally manipulated and blaming “brainwashing” and “mind control” for your own conscious decision-making.

            This also can occlude an ex’s ability to learn from his experiences in scientology.

            For most Exes, anti-scientology can become an adolescent rut, and a barrier to a more integrated post-ex view.

    The Aftermath going into child abuse and suicide made the discussion very serious. On his blog Mike said the next episode is about trashing Miscavige which might be fun.

    Scn blogs have been around long enough that there’s not much new to say. The CoS Inc. is on self destruct anyhow. Who is going to join up without checking out the internet first? Some estimates are that half of the world’s population now has internet access and the percentage is rising. IMO the only hope for scn as a subject to continue is to rip out all the dark and evil parts and make Elron’s theories and belief in intergalactic conflict and body thetans optional.

    Okay – I’ll go along with the the topic. Here’s a summary of ONE COMMENT made by someone. I wonder if he/she really believes this happened or happens to everyone.

    one pays enormous amounts of money
    sometimes physically/sexually abused
    needs ignored
    eat poorly
    pitted against family and friends
    lied to
    learn to discriminate against other religions/races etc.
    income below poverty level
    spied on
    threatened
    taught you are a space alien

    Holy-Moly! A masochists dream come true!

    I’ll admit that “when I was a scn-ist” I regarded Jesus freaks and Hare Krisnas as “uninformed”.

    Regarding “aliens”, I once read a series of books called “The Star People” or something like that. It suggested that advanced beings visited earth long ago and introduced genes or variations or something into the DNA of Homo Saps which are now activating in some people. I think I fit in with about 8 of the 10 characteristics listed as representative of star people. Can’t prove it one way or the other – laughter
