Visiting an Org a Hoax?
“Tom Newton” says he sent this e-mail in as a troll. That may be but the only parts of the e-mail he posted to his blog are the edited sections. He removed the identifing portions and what came before and after what I posted.
Tom, please post the full e-mail you sent and post the e-mail address you used to send it. I will then have a good laugh with you about how well you trolled me.
Not only has Tom refused to post the unedited letter or tell me the e-mail address he supposedly used, he has deleted my request for that info from his blog. Covering up a lie, Tom? How about just the name of the city I deleted from the post? That should be simple, right?
How do you expect people to believe you when you continually lie? But then again, I don’t know of anyone who believes you.
Got this e-mail today and thought I would share it with you. Scientology PR people like Tommy Davis never answer a journalist’s questions about Scientology. They always say if anyone wants to know about Scientology they can come down and find out for themselves. Well, this person did:
I have recently begun looking into Scientology, both from their website and from the many postings on You tube from yourself and Anon.
I have read what I could, and tried to learn as much as possible in order to see the whole picture. I have visited the Scientology website, have looked into all the pro-Scientology sites and documents, and even tried contacting the [local] church to learn more. From the websites, I found nothing but propaganda or anti-anonymous slander. This made me think that either everyone might be right or the church was just protecting itself. I had thought that I needed to go to the source, so I went downtown and walked into the church.
My experience there was something else. I asked to speak to someone that could help broaden my understanding of Scientology, someone that could help me understand what Scientology was all about. Before I was able to, I was told that i should first take a personality test and then they could use a personal example of how Scientology helps people. After 4 hours of the same questions asked over and over (almost impossible to answer without sounding perverted, bigoted, etc.) As hard as I could I tried to answer with my true views to leading questions like “Do you view yourself as a positive, careless( not carefree, they made this clear) person, or a negative, hard person”. To these I would answer neither, and attempt to explain, but was instructed I had to pick one or the other.
So after the long process with the auditor and the E-Meter, I was finally able to speak to someone who could help. The person I spoke to advised me that I was a truly messed up individual and that only Scientology could help me out. I was advised that in order to clear myself of these problems, I should stay and take some courses. I advised them that all I truly wanted was to learn about Scientology and that at this time, I couldn’t take any time away.
When I explained my questions, that I wanted to find out the truth, not just stories on the Internet, things changed quite quickly. My auditor left and came back with several others and I was photographed, yelled at and insulted. I was told that I was a bigot, a lier, and that if i wanted to coujour lies about Scientology, I shouldn’t waste their time.This went on for only a few moments before I started to leave. All the way out, I was yelled at, insulted and photographed by more and more people. By the time I was out the door I had a good dozen or so people yelling and screaming at me. I had never been so embarrassed in my life. There where people on the streets who looked at me and avoided me because of their behaviour.
On my home on the subway, I realized I was being followed by some of the individuals from the church. I remember watching videos about such behaviour and switched trains a few times before I thought I lost them.
It is because of all this, the research I have done (on both sides), and my personal experience with the church, that I now side with you and the responsible members of Anonymous.
