Mark Bunker happened to swing on by today, so we decided to go see
2 excellent movies at the Egyptian Theater, right past the Scientology
Testing Center, in Hollywood.
We first drove around the Complex, to view once again how utterly
D E A D it is. There were cars in the parking lot, but zero public to be
seen. Ok, I think we saw 2 people on course. To those new here, I always compare this to days gone by ('70's&'80's) when Scientology was booming, even on a Saturday night: Big Difference now!
Next we drove by the Scientology Testing Center on Hollywood Blvd, which is still gutted. Before we arrived, I said to Mark, "No doubt Scientology will be out in droves tonight, due to the rain the last 2 nights,
their stats are WAY down. (The goal of the Testing Center is to do so many "Stress Tests" and to sell books, and hopefully rope some people "In").
Sure enough, they usually have 4 card tables out, tonight they had 6 or 8!
Way more than they've had in the past, and yes, they had an OT 8 out there to do crowd control re XENU. Usually it's just kids out there, with one staff member. Since South Park's boom, and Xenu now a house hold word, they've had Joel Phillips out there last week-end, and another OT 8 this week-end. I said "Hi Bob!" and kept on rolling.
Mark and I had already dropped by each table, spreading seeds of
truth and reminding them it's JUST A CON, as we strolled along. Most people who were getting the test cracked up. I think they knew it was,
and just wanted to see what it's like. Remember: It's Free! (Yeah...right)
Mark sat down and did the fastest education on Xenu I think I've ever heard, and this kid's eyes were wide open for a few minutes, until the shut down hit. Yes, Scientology, you see it as "Suppressive". Why? It IS what you believe. Why do you have to lie about it? It ISN'T going back in the bottle, so you may as well stop lying about it.
You want to be thought of as a religion? Well, every religion has beliefs and people discuss them, all the time. Get over your damned lies. Stop acting like a CULT, and maybe people will stop treating you like one.
Meantime: Keep up the great work of showing exactly what you're ~really~ all about, behind the
The movies were fantastic, and I was thrilled to no longer have that endless wave of guilt I used to always have, while in Scientology--that I wasn't doing enough. It never stopped, until the day I finally said
"GOOD BYE".That DAY, it stopped, and my life opened up, the guilt I'd felt for really about 30 years went away...and life has been far more delightful ever since!
Blessings to ALL,
and Happy Easter!!!
