Scientology Dramaturgy: Commenters of the Week! - 2012-02-11
"And you say these policy letters are infallible?" Things back at the underground bunker are peaceful and calm -- the cats dig the new scratching post, we hear, and they're finally getting some quiet time while we're on the road frantically trying to keep up with Scientology's ongoing implosion.
Things started out quietly enough as we began another week with some Sunday Funnies that continued a Star Wars theme Down Under. Then we kicked things up a notch with another big Monday investigative feature, this time about Scientology's secretive Church of Spiritual Technology. In a rare interview with a former CST employee, we provided detailed maps to all five locations of the church's bizarre underground vaults in California, New Mexico, and Wyoming, where archives of L. Ron Hubbard's writings are stored to survive a nuclear war.
On Tuesday, we took a closer look at the 2-minute TV ad that Scientology has been running on network television. Turns out not everything in it is exactly on the up and up.
