Scientology protest in Hollywood

Post by Pete » Mon Feb 11, 2008 4:18 am

If you guys have been paying attention to the news the past few days, you've probably seen a lot of stuff about the group "Anonymous" doing a worldwide protest of Scientology yesterday.

Well, some friends and I joined the protest Hollywood -- which attracted HUNDREDS of people (I personally saw over 500 different protesters).

I wrote up a blog article about it here:

And posted photos here:

Oh, and if you're wondering what all the fuss is about, this will shed some light on the situation:

I don't follow the news, but it's good to know that someone is giving those morons a political beating.

Why do I have the ever so slightest feeling that you guys don't like scientoligists? It takes much discipline for the scientologists to keep a straight face.
For any grievances posted above, I blame whoever is in charge . . .

Not that i see any point in scientology but if someone someday arranges a similar protest against christianity, i will follow with high interest what peoples has to say about it.

Personally i think scientology is just a "trend religion", which propably is forgotten in next ten years.

I once bought a dianetics book out of curiosity. After struggling to figure out what the hell I was reading for about a third of the way through I finally realized it was propaganda to get me to buy about fifty more books. I was like "???? You mean I've got to buy and READ fifty more books to learn all the cool super mind powers?" (I was, at times, a gullible teenager). I then threw the book away, proclaiming it to be 'a piece of crap', and got a membership to QPBC where I ordered numerous books on improving memory and thinking ability (I can't remember any of it though, lol).

I would follow such a protest with great interest too. I am a Christian, and even if you don't agree with Christianity or think that Christians believe some extreme things, you have to admit that Scientology is much worse. I mean, volcanos, H-bombs, thetans, jet planes, and Xenu?

I don't believe in ANY religion! After all, every one was created by man and man always seems to have this URGENT need to get into your pockets!

I'd rather worship FB than that............
