Re: “Portland Woman Petitions Church of Scientology To Let Her Daughter Home For Vacation

Bob Dobbs,

You obviously don't know the first thing about cults.

Read up on the subject before you make any more silly statements.

Re: “Selling Scientology

@Mad Hatter
"It takes A LOT to get excommunicated from the Church."

That's completely false. Scientology "justice" doesn't work like that. "Excommunication" from the Church of Scientology can be done very, very easily.

In the Church of Scientology's "justice", there are no "rules of evidence"; anything may be determined "true" or "false" at a whim. In Scientology's "justice", the accused has no right to confront his accusers or even SEE the "evidence". Proceedings are done behind closed doors and the accused might not even know about them! The "findings", if published, contain only generalities, no facts, no proof.

Given this kind of "justice", it is no wonder that getting someone "excommunicated" from the church is the easiest thing in the world, even when the accused has done NOTHING wrong.

No, Scientology "justice" only protects the leaders of the church, not the accused, not the public.

Re: “Selling Scientology

Typical Scientologist, stating things AS FACT that they have only been told by the Church of Scientology. Such arrogance! You have NO proof of anything you say. None. It is "fact" to you because you were told it by your "all knowing" church, and you will not, cannot look for yourself. You, Mad Hatter, are a fanatic, taking all your information from your church without EVER thinking, without EVER looking for yourself.

You think, Mad Hatter, that the whole world should blindly accept the Church of Scientology's word for EVERYTHING, just as you do. You are upset when this doesn't happen.

But the rest of the world can still look. The rest of the world can still think. The rest of the world can still reason.

You, dear Mad Hatter, are the lunatic fringe. Some day, when you poke your head out of the fuzzy-false bubble created for you by your little Church of Scientology, you will know how badly you have been lied to, how badly you have been conned, how badly you have been betrayed by your church.

Re: “Selling Scientology

Thanks for publishing a story that must be told. The church of Scientology has gotten away with crimes, fraud and abuse because they had lots of lawyers and because they had "confidential" confessional blackmail material on their victims. I honor all those who are now willing to go against this abusive organization.

It is so revealing that, even here in the comments, members of the "church" are making veiled threats of blackmail against Jeff. By their own words, they condemn themselves.

This good article is another step towards full disclosure of the truth about Scientology. Well done Matt and Jeff.
