Scientology Freakout: Commenters of the Week! - 2011-07-09
"You'll know the Marcabians by their atom bombs and fedora hats, dear." Things just keep rolling along here at Runnin' Scared's fortified underground bunker, where we keep an eye on all things Scientology while waiting for the invading Marcabian fifth fleet. It's been another eventful week!
We started things off Sunday with more coverage from Corpus Christi, Texas, where Scientology's goon squad surveilling Marty Rathbun defended its creepy practices by saying it's making a "documentary." On Monday, Independence Day, we ruminated on how many Scientologists there actually are in the world.
On Tuesday, freaky sojourning spirit Antoine Oman returned to discuss Scientology in the 60s with a far out Roger Weller. On Wednesday, we wondered how desperate a journalist needs to be to do Scientology's dirty work. That night, we witnessed a remarkable scene at Janet Reitman's first book appearance, and wrote about it the next day.
