Meet Scientologist Pat Harney

May 30, 2009

I’ve been posting a bunch of Pat Harney videos lately.   Here’s an intro piece from TomVallar.

Norway Considers Ban

May 30, 2009

Norway is looking into Scientology’s abuses.

Fact vs. Religion

May 29, 2009

That’s the nick of the young woman who interviewed Pat Harney and the former Sea Org Member.  Here are a couple extra videos from her.

And in this one she says this is the moment in the interview with Pat Harney where she just gave up on trying to get anything resembling anything remotely approaching a logical explanation.

Wikipedia Bans Scientology

May 28, 2009

Perhaps giving a suggestion to the government of France, Wikipedia has decided to ban all IP addresses associated with organized Scientology.  No more self-serving edits, according to the UK’s Register.

Exclusive In an unprecedented effort to crack down on self-serving edits, the Wikipedia supreme court has banned contributions from all IP addresses owned or operated by the Church of Scientology and its associates.

Closing out the longest-running court case in Wikiland history, the site’s Arbitration Committee voted 10 to 0 (with one abstention) in favor of the move, which takes effect immediately.

The eighth most popular site on the web, Wikipedia bills itself as “the free encyclopedia anyone can edit.” Administrators frequently ban individual Wikifiddlers for their individual Wikisins. And the site’s UK press officer/resident goth once silenced an entire Utah mountain in a bizarre attempt to protect a sockpuppeting ex-BusinessWeek reporter. But according to multiple administrators speaking with The Reg, the muzzling of Scientology IPs marks the first time Wikipedia has officially barred edits from such a high-profile organization for allegedly pushing its own agenda on the site.

The Church of Scientology has not responded to our request for comment.

Personally, I’m not for bans but I can see how Scientology’s actions would make you want to shut them down.  And if France decides to go the same route, well, who am I to argue?

Interview with Pat Harney

May 28, 2009

A young woman interviews Scientology PR rep Pat Harney over the phone.  I haven’t watched this interview yet but it looks like it could be good.  You know if Pat is speaking for an hour, she has plenty of time to tell some whoppers.

French Trial

May 28, 2009

Scientologist Kevin Owen responded in my earlier thread about the trial in France.  He reminded me that I have not put up any coverage of the trial.  He also said every time Scientology is attacked it expands.  Well, get ready for more expansion, Kevin.

Kevin also wants to remind you all that the evil psychs are behind all the attacks on Scientology.
