Scientology Flameout: Commenters of the Week! - 2011-09-03
Marcotai conquers entheta! We're sitting here in the underground bunker, looking back on what was another amazing week of Scientology watching. More and more tips are coming in, things are breaking overseas, and the cats are mewing for their breakfast. We're on sensory overload here, but let's pause to look back on the week that was.
On Monday, we continued our big countdown with #15, naming Andreas Heldal-Lund and other old time critics who have spent years publicizing Scientology's secrets and abuses on their websites.
Later that night, just after midnight, we posted a story about Scientology's wacky New Yorker parody in its Freedom magazine. After we got some sleep, we talked to former Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder the next morning to update the post with some perspective on Freedom's bizarre complaints about Lawrence Wright's article.
