The Tampa Bay Times has just published another blockbuster story on the Church of Scientology. The story focuses on CPA and attorney Jim Jackson who was in the Church for decades.
While I will publish an analysis in a future post, I want to note here that Church of Scientology spokesperson Karin Pouw has just effectively destroyed Scientology in her attack on Jim Jackson:
Pouw then said Jackson was telling people he was communicating with the dead, including Hubbard. That indicates he is “delusional” and “certifiably insane,” she said.
Scientology’s OT III – OT VIII levels are exclusively concerned with telepathically communicating with the souls of the billions of dead people murdered by Xenu. These OT levels seek to resolve the problems created by “body thetans”. In doing so, the Scientologist communicates with these dead souls, with these BT’s, in order to set them free. Once liberated of all BT’s, the Scientologist discovers who they really are up there at the pinnacle of OT VIII.
And yet Pouw is now publicly denouncing communication with the dead as “delusional” and “certifiably insane.”
By Pouw’s own logic, then, Scientology’s vaunted OT Levels are “delusional” and “certifiably insane.” Therefore, Karin Pouw has just effectively destroyed the entire purpose of the Church of Scientology.
Well done Karin.
The Church of Scientology can’t have it both ways: It can’t enrich itself by selling OT’s its super-expensive and copyrighted secret techniques of communicating with the souls of the dead while publicly denouncing communications with the dead.
We further note that the Church has published many “OT Success Stories” in the past in which OT’s routinely described communicating with dead people and various discarnate entities.
Pouw’s staggering gaffe is reminiscent of former Scientology spokesperson Tommy Davis’ disastrous proposition in which he stated that if L. Ron Hubbard was not injured in WWII as Hubbard claimed, then all of Dianetics and Scientology is a lie. This is what Tommy Davis told Lawrence Wright, author of Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief:
if it was true that Hubbard had not been injured, then “the injuries that he handled by the use of Dianetics procedures were never handled, because they were injuries that never existed; therefore, Dianetics is based on a lie; therefore, Scientology is based on a lie.” He concluded, “The fact of the matter is that Mr. Hubbard was a war hero.”
L. Ron Hubbard was not a war hero. As we covered on this blog, L. Ron Hubbard was not a war hero and never received the Bronze Star or two Purple Hearts. Hubbard never saw one day in combat and was never wounded in combat.
Highlights from the TBT article include the revelation that David Miscavige’s attorney Monique Yingling is a CST Special Director.
In a previous article on this blog I noted that OSA Spy Boss Linda Hamel is an IAS Trustee. With Yingling now confirmed as a CST Special Director, it becomes obvious that Miscavige has blatantly stacked the deck in his favor within the interlocking directorates of the Scientology transnational scam.
Now that spokesperson Pouw has admitted that communicating with the dead is “delusional” and “certifiably insane” it seems that Scientology Inc. must stop the delivery of its OT Levels and focus on what it does best: Selling status and buying empty buildings.
