AGP: His appearance on Colbert was great. Colbert even did an intro section before the commercial break and intererview. That is uncommon.

Then colbert spouted off scientologese words. It was hilarious!
Thank you for this! It is hilarious :)

Also, thanks to Don Carlo for ALL the links to different media.
Man this book is getting light shown on it, thank goodness.

As my friend, Warrior, always says:
"Sunshine Disinfects" OH YEAH!

I don't live anywhere near a Scientology building. The closest is a bit over 100 miles away.

Granted that the library system here is integrated and they trade books around for those looking for specific titles. But get this. I asked for Jenna Miscavige Hill's book, and they hadn't received the two copies they ordered from the publisher. I had four people ahead of me on the waiting list.

I finished it last weekend and when I returned it asked for Going Clear. Four copies, all checked out and I'm on the waiting list.

All this good press on the anti-$cilon books is having an impact. People who don't have a real chance of being sucked in are reading about the crazy shit. Here's an oxymoron statement for you:

Cult inoculation is going viral.

Here is my review of "Going Clear" the prison of belief by Lawrence Wright.

You need a different fact checker, for starters.

Annie Tidman/Broeker/Logan, AKA Lisa Mitchell was born one year before I was, In 1956 according to Marty Rathbun in his memorial statement of her life.

In "Going Clear, the prisoner of Belief" by Lawrence Wright, it is claimed on pages 106/107 that Annie Tidman started as a Commodore's messenger at the age of 12 in the Sea Org.

Well, I was a Commadores Messenger at the age of 10, there are pictures, there is video footage. Apparently Annie was one of the original four Messengers. This is bullshit You know it, I know it and there is only one bus i catch, it's called the 347, you gonna throw me under it for speaking the truth?

I would be very interested to hear #1Karen De La Carriere's opinions on this as she is obviously
very friendly with Lawrence Wright,Tony O, Mike Rinder, Marty Rathbun, Tory Christman and many other Scientology celebrities.

Look at our brokenness.
We know that in all Creation
Only the human family
Has strayed from the sacred way.

Teach us love,compassion,honour
That we may heal the earth
And heal each other.(part of an Ojibway prayer)

I'm interested to know if there was anything you particularly enjoyed about the book, Tamasin?

No, there was nothing about the book I enjoyed, why would I enjoy something that tried to destroy me?

OK, but the book didn't try to destroy you, the book is shining a light on what tried to destroy you. You must be pleased about that? :)

No I am NOT, because what is stated about Annie Tidman is a LIE! FACT!

YOU do NOT need to LIE about what happened inside Scientology, IT speaks for itself! Scientology is a blatant LIAR.And, so are Scientologists when under the thumb of Scientology as in the doctrines of L. Ron Hubbard. They ALL lie to protect their own skins.

This includes Marty Rathbun, Mike Rinder, Karen De la Carrierre, Terril Park, Mick Wenlock, The Gillham Sisters and many more who try to LIE their way through an avalanche of untruths. Truth hurts, gets your conscience going, that's IF you still have one.

Most scientologists do NOT! Have a conscience, that is.
