Scientology warned


And Dawn Olsen is on the warners’ side.

Just in time for Scientology leader David Miscavige’s 50th birthday (this Friday, April 30th, Happy Birthday Dickhead), internet activist group Anonymous has released a list of 1000 people who’ve left the Church — and spoken out against it.

I remember when the wave of criticism grew from a few outspoken critics, like Arnie Lerma, Mark Bunker and Gerry Armstrong, to a massive body of masked and unmasked individuals who decided it was time to take the Church of Scientology to task. Since then, a grassroots movement has helped add their voice to those who’ve been abused by this government sanctioned ponzi scheme/cult, that enjoys tax benefits no other religion gets, may have killed members, has driven members to suicide or bankruptcy and uses famous celebrities to create a facade of legitimacy built on bilking innocent people for millions upon millions of dollars.

Good on her.

And here’s the video she posted, too.

And just to prove that the Left and the Right aren’t quite two different species, here’s a call from the Huffington Post’s, Steven Hassan, to quash Scientology’s tax exemption status.

Good stuff, considering Scientology is the end result of a bar bet between sci-fi authors L. Ron Hubbard and Robert A. Heinlein (but you already knew that).

All that said…

Face it, Scientology is here to stay. They’re a permanent fixture. And twenty or thirty years from now, no one will pay them any more attention than the Lutherans.

The first bit, I hope not. But in reality, and referring to the second bit, I hope so.
