Blog: Critical Q&A 90 - 2017-01-01
The weekly show where I answer questions from viewers left in the comments section of my Q&A shows or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I answer are:
(1) I know Scientology targets professionals such as chiropractors and veterinarians with their business and admin "tech". How do these small business people, who are also Scientologists, deal with patients, customers, or even business partners who are reading your blog, watching Leah Remini's "Aftermath" or who are simply exposed to what is becoming more and more common knowledge about Hubbard's cult of broken dreams? Surely they can't disconnect from all of them? What if a business partner or patient is one degree removed from a Facebook friend who is an open critic? What if a customer's husband watched "Going Clear"? It's insane to even think it's possible to exert this level of control. I have to believe if this policy were strictly enforced everyone would be declared.
(2) Is everyone in charge of PR at $cientology, aka the Office of Special Affairs, ignorant of the reverse effect, when they bash former members? To name just a few: Tory "Magoo" Christman, Jason Beghe, and Karen De La Carrier, and the more recent attacks aimed at Mike Rinder, Leah Remini, Ron Miscavige and yourself. You all have an average of 30 years of participation. The "COS" in it's infinite wisdom has decided to label all you as losers, immoral, selfish, criminal, the "slime of the earth", and so on, and so on. I extract and interpret from this practice, that 30 years of participation and reaching the highest levels in the various member areas of the organization, along with studying the "scriptures/tech", has been ineffective, and therefore $cientology simply, does NOT work. It seems like they are testifying, to the failure of their own system and structure. Another foot bullet? Is this their admission or am I getting it wrong? I would love to hear you elaborate on this topic.
