Blog: (VIDEO) Critical Q&A 4 - 2015-04-06
The fourth installment of my question-and-answer video show, where I take up questions subscribers and commenters have asked me in my videos and answer them as best I can. Questions in this video:
(1) I'm guessing that you're YouTube blog has exploded in popularity after the Going Clear documentary appeared on HBO this week, kudos to you for keeping this conversation going. I'm becoming obsessed, this unraveling is and will continue to be super fascinating! Question: The comment has been made online that Cults don't often "end well". Do you fear, or suspect that as this "Church aka Cult" goes over the cliff, that members will drink the proverbial Kool Aid, take up arms or (fill in the bad ending blank here).
(2) I'm a never-in and have a question for you. Some time ago I was contacted by Scientology trying to update their mailing list. I politely told the woman she had the wrong person and good bye. Then the harassment started. Calls at all hours, texts, etc. I scoured the blogs for information and advice. I finally just blocked numbers and didn't answer any unknown calls. I also turned my phone off at night. Here's the thing: I went from someone who didn't have an opinion about Scientology (sure Tom Cruise is weird, but he's also an actor and you expect a bit of oddity) to someone who now is working to eliminate a dangerous cult. So here is my question: Why didn't Scientology go away when they had confirmation that they had the wrong person? By their own admission the person they were looking for was in another city.
