Scientology social media: Stop being afraid to turn over all your hard earned cash! - 2021-01-03
Once again we're indebted to our social media source who lets us in on what Scientologists are sharing with each other online.
We often hear from people, particularly on Facebook or Twitter, who are surprised to learn that Scientologists are allowed to be online at all. It's one of the most persistent misconceptions about Scientology, and we think it might be a legacy of stories from the 1990s about the "net nannie," a program that Scientology sent out on CD-Roms to prevent the home computers of Scientologists from visiting certain websites on the early Internet.
It's true that today Sea Org members generally don't get online, but that's because they work around the clock and don't have access to computers. But as for "public" Scientologists, which are in the majority, they're online as much as the rest of us. But they're conditioned to avoid "entheta" — material that is critical of Scientology. And they're very good at it. They know that if they're caught looking at this website or a critical Facebook group, or one of Leah Remini's programs, they can be hauled in for expensive interrogations that can go on for weeks.
