Blog: Critical Q&A 32 - 2015-11-22
The weekly show where I answer questions from viewers or those sent in by email to AskChrisShelon@gmail.com. This week, the questions I take up are:
(1) How is it possible to have a job and a life outside of the COS and yet still be in? I get it if you live on the premises and your whole life is about the COS. But if you live at home and have internet and everything, I don't get how one would be sucked in to the thing. Wouldn't you be in a state of cognitive dissonance all the time?
(2) David Miscaviage (or the Space Pope, as I like to call him) has proven himself to be a potentially dangerous person, imprisoning people, beating his staff, willing to let his own father die. If and when Scientology hits an iceberg and it becomes obvious that the whole thing is going to come down, do you think the Space Pope could possibly decide to take as many people down with him as he can? I don't mean throwing people under the bus; I mean do you think he could, God forbid, order people to be killed? It's an extremely unpleasant thought, but he is a violent and arrogant guy who is willing to hold onto power by any means necessary, and sometimes I'm genuinely concerned for the safety of outspoken critics such as yourself.
