2018 Scientology Super Bowl Ad

Post by Wieber » Mon Feb 05, 2018 9:13 pm

I just read about and then watched the 2018 Scientology Super Bowl Ad on Tony Ortega's Underground Bunker.
https://tonyortega.org/2018/02/05/best- ... d-curious/

I read about it first along with the comments and then watched it.

What a terrible ad! It was so much worse than anything anyone on Tony Ortega's site had to say about it. The only good thing about it was that it was mercifully short.

By the way the ad is also out tech. Scientology registrars are trained never to ask their prospects a question that can be answered with, 'no.' Viewers of the ads are being cold called but they are still prospects.

Never seen those, looked a little, my my what horseshit. Discarding labels? Really? Then what the fuck is a BT? An OT? An SP? A Wog? Are the Scilons claiming those are NOT labels?

And this "What is true is what's true for you" dreck. My God, this is something that can be destroyed in Philosophy 99. Bloody hell, even kids can figure out that's NOT true, if for no other reason than the near universe-size can of worms it opens. No, you do NOT want to go there...

Kiss my ass.

I think 'horseshit' is the technical term for all of that. People leaving the cult and those who haven't been in but finding out about it, all use that specific word, instead of many others that could be applied. They don't use, 'bullshit." At least I've never seen or heard that in this context.

When I finally left I said to myself, "I've had enough of this horseshit." Afterwards that specific word was the one of choice, applied independently, and consistently to the Scientology experience.
