It's "selling" things that do not exist. They don't deliver enlightenment and good health, just useless books, classes and lectures/DVD's.

All the more reason to take away their status as a tax exempt religion.

When I viewed the website for scientologynews, there were video clips of the opening of the org where Senator Pappas, the mayor of St. Paul and another MN representative and some man involved with Drug-Free crusades, giving nauseating speeches on how scientology will benefit Ramsey County and the City of St. Paul. Forgive them, they know not what they are involved with. We need to send them copies of Inside Scientology, The Complex, and some of the other famous books and newspaper articles that expose scientology As far as real estate taxes owed, yes, I agree totally. Let's inform Governor Dayton. He seems like a reasonable guy. MNRaid.org may be working on this--they're pretty active and well-organized. Also, the Pioneer Press (St. Paul paper) and the Star Tribune (Minneapolis) have investigative reporters who are intelligent, skilled, and brave--they will report the truth, hopefully.

I would be willing to bet that no one in our major media outlets or in our legislature has the moxy to take on the Scientologists. They are heavily armed with a hoard of lawyers just itching to file any number of lawsuits. They also have enough money to purchase (or ruin) as many politicians as they need to do whatever they want to. The local pols and probably the local media are running scared.

Actually, I don't think the media is very worried about retaliation from scientology. After all, this is the land of 10,000 Lutherans (along with Catholics, Jews, Muslims, etc. etc.)and here in "Lake Wobegon", people pretty much see phonies as they are. They're not at all impressed by Hollywood and movie stars and they know that the extreme crazies eventually leave for California, anyway. And the Siberian-like weather pretty much takes care of anything that's out there acting up. Especially in St. Paul. Remember the "media-jackals" had to deal with Governor Jesse Ventura, so scientologists are nothing.

Donating your inheritance and giving away all of your earthly possessions is perfectly fine--after all you can't take it with you when you die. Not sure if your children would be very happy about it, though. But if you must give it all way, at least consider a animal shelter instead of scientology. People at animal shelters don't stalk you, force you to disconnect from our family, degrade and belittle you, brainwash you, badger you to spend more and more on coursework. People at shelters just say "thank you for saving the animals" and the kitties and puppies say "thank you," too. Way more spiritually rewarding!
ohh myy god!! U really need to take urself to an org and find out what scntgy really is about.. Ur so on the wrong page its embarrasing.. Scntgy was discredited in the 50s wen the psych industry shit themselves cos ron had worked out the connection between spirit mind body . How cud the psychs carry on makin billions if people werent confused anymore. 1200 kids are put on ritilin and other mind alterin drugs every week in the uk. Scntlgy is the ONLY organisation fighting against that. U need to luk into the NWO also.

Hi troll. You really believe you can make us think you're a Scientologist?

However, it was a nice but illiterate imitation of a Scientologist.

They should be. These guys are one of the biggest single filers of lawsuits in the country. And they are already courting our pols and community leaders..."Senator Pappas, the mayor of St. Paul and another MN representative and some man involved with Drug-Free crusades, giving nauseating speeches on how scientology will benefit Ramsey County and the City of St. Paul" my eye!! When do you ever hear of this taking place with anything but a new business? No tax exempt status for these charlatans.

If only you realized how silly you look. The *only* place to find out about scientology is *onlk* scientology and the law courts should be ignored?

Actually, no. Dianetics and hubbard's dianetic theory were proven to be faslse. It's in the history books should you care to "look for yourself"

The *only* one to "shit themselves" was LRH himself. Hence, why P.A.B Dr of Divinity was born. You know possibly zero about the actuality of scientology/dianetics. Hubbard morphed dianetics into scientology because he went bust in Wichita and for the "religion" angle. Yet another documented *fact* in the history books.

But it was okay for Lron to beg the psychs before he wrote dianetics?

It all depends on who you ask. I would say it's not because it displays most if not all of the traits ascribed to cults and because I want their tax exempt status taken away. But then again, I am at the point that I want all religions to start paying taxes.

This "blubo" is not a Scientologist but he IS nuts.

What is it with Scientology? Scientology trolls like "Human Spit" come here and claim "I am not a Scientologist"; then non-Scientologists like this "blubo" and "marcotai" who haven't a clue try to convince us they ARE Scientologists.

Strange people clustered around a very strange cult.

Free entertainment.

Just another org that will sit empty, except for the few poor saps on staff working for $50 a week and eating beans and rice 3 x a day.

So is Daz = Blubo = Matthaus? Three trolls in one? It seems that Blubo and Matt have an identical, abysmally low level of literacy, as evidenced by certain characteristics in their nonstandard English, "text-speak". Period.

As far as Blubo threatening to beat up Polly when he writes "I cud slap u into shape in no time", shouldn't he be reported due to the violent, threatening nature of the message? Perhaps he was just doing his homework for the David Miscavage Slapping Course.
