Dear Dr. Introvigne: You clearly can take what you take as confirmation of whatever factoid you can imagine. There are always good reasons my communications on any subject are as long as they are. One often relevant reason is the Scientologists and their collaborators’ reliance on pretended ignorance. It could be said that they causatively know not what they do. They would say they causatively not know what they do. Pretended ignorance is a lie, of course, and often requires some … [Read more...] about Sects Trafficking; religious scholars for sale or for free

Dear Dr. Introvigne: Following is my email to Mike Rinder querying the veracity of his statement that you say is defamatory. He has not responded, and I cannot expect him to. He still serves the Miscavigeite sectists’ malign purposes in vital ways, was a paid liar for them for twenty years, and has maintained his scientologically-instilled hatred for me since claiming to have left Scientology. A key weapon in the Fair Game arsenal, as you know, is “Ignore Tech,” and Rinder has visibly been … [Read more...] about Blissing Out on Ignore Tech

All of this is publicly and freely available. There are a few events, however, that must be mentioned to get to the OIRF and its “Religious Freedom” program and … [Read more...] about Exceptional Hypocrisy: The US’s International Religious Freedom program
I, Gerry Armstrong declare: 1. I was a Scientologist from 1969 through 1981. For eleven years, I was in the “Sea Organization,” (“Sea Org”) the segment of Scientologists through which Scientology “churches” and “religious” groups around the world are controlled and Scientology-connected commercial enterprises are overseen. The Sea Org is a pseudo-military organization, and I rose to the rank of “ensign.” I served in the Sea Org on its ships or at its land bases in several countries. 2. … [Read more...] about Declaration of Gerry Armstrong (March 29, 2021)
Why did the Scientologists need and want their urgent arrest warrant? The short and immediate answer is Russia. Scientology and Scientologists, overtly and covertly, are totalitarian and extremist. Key to the Scientologists’ totalitarianism and extremism is their “Suppressive Person” doctrine. The SP doctrine is extremist in the extreme. The doctrine is as evil and as extreme as the Hitlerian Nazis’ Jewish doctrine; which is universally understood as evil and extremist. Unlike the … [Read more...] about Any Time of the Day or Night
