This is a great talk between Joe Rogan and Leah Remini about Scientology’s OTIII level. On OTIII (pronounced OT 3), one learns the Xenu story. By the time a Scientologist reaches OTIII he or she has easily spent $100,000 or more.
When the OTIII levels were leaked online in the early 1990’s, the Church of Scientology spent a great deal of money suing those people and groups who leaked the levels.
The Church of Scientology claimed that its OT levels are trade secrets. How can this be? How can Scientology, which calls itself a religion, claim that its religious secrets are also trade secrets. Businesses have trade secrets; religions do not.
Nevertheless, the OT levels are copyrighted and therefore Scientology uses copyrights to argue that its “advanced materials” are trade secrets. This is all very evasive of course. Two things to know:
1. The OT levels make Scientology a great deal of money. So the OT levels are about money. That is why the OT levels are a trade secret.
2. If people knew the Xenu story in advance they would likely not choose to become Scientologists. Who would pay Scientology hundreds of thousands of dollars for the privilege of auditing their body thetans for 10-20 years while being subject to harsh ethics and constant demands to donate more and more money Scientology building funds, legal defense funds, and PR projects?
The Church of Scientology is actually a business that masquerades as a religion. In order to protect its business interests, the Church created a Mafia-like psycho-terrorist enforcement armed called the Office of Special Affairs (OSA).
At present, OSA is using tax-exempt dollars to attack Leah Remini and everyone connected with her show. These attacks are defamatory, slanderous, and false. This is how a Mafia, a criminal cartel, behaves. For this reason, the IRS must act to open an investigation into Scientology’s ill-gotten 1993 tax exemption.
