Scientology TV’s Futile Attempt to Normalize Scientology Deviance & Lies

There is no possible way to normalize Scientology. Illustration from a 1984 Scientology book on the Cult’s brainwashing and mind control procedures.

The Cult of Scientology has been asynchronous with, and hostile to, Western Culture since Dianetics was released on May 9, 1950. Scientology has always been at odds with the world and has never been mainstream. And yet what Scientology so desperately craves is legitimacy and acceptance. According to the latest Scientology propaganda in social media, Scientology TV is a spectacular success. This tweet was featured today on Tony Ortega’s blog:


The emphasis of Scientologist’s Joachim von Neuhaus tweet is contained in this section:

Who are these “key world Opinion Leaders” referenced by Scientologist von Neuhaus? He very conspicuously fails to provide names. This demands we characterize his claim as wholly unproven until he offers evidence. Moreover, von Neuhaus betrays his Scientology cult mindset when he makes the rather absurd and foolish claim that watching Scientology TV will save the life of every “being” on this planet. The fact is that it costs $500,000+ to go up Scientology’s Bridge — an amount of money that the overwhelming majority of Earth’s population will never earn or have in their entire lives.

Scientology’s Television Channel & Tax Exemption Prove Nothing

Another Scientology fallacy at work in von Neuhaus’ tweet is that having a TV channel makes any group part of society. This is not valid reasoning. Having a TV channel only proves that one has a TV channel and nothing more.

In and of itself, merely having a TV channel does not confer legitimacy upon Scientology. Likewise, Scientology has fruitlessly argued since 1993 that having IRS tax exemption proves it is a legitimate religion. But this too is a logical fallacy because other deviant cultic groups such as Westboro Baptist Church also have IRS 501(c)3 tax exemption. The People’s Temple — the church behind the Jonestown mass suicide and murder of 912 people — also had tax exemption.

Scientologist von Neuhaus’ tweet goes to what Scientologist Joy Villa told her former campaign manager Robbie Olson: The goal of Scientology TV is to “normalize” Scientologists. The problem here is that Scientologists are not normal due to their strange Xenu-based cosmology; this as evidenced by a rather bizarre tweet made on May 2, 2018 by Scientologist John Mappin concerning marijuana:

Due to his Scientology-based ignorance, Scientologist Mappin does not understand that marijuana naturally evolved as a plant. Marijuana was not, as Mappin seems to think, engineered by malign ancient alien “botanical psychiatrists” who came from the planet Farsec as L. Ron Hubbard taught.

Scientology’s space opera aside, Scientology is incapable of ever being normalized for the simple reason that the Scientology Cult is deviant, malicious, and evil.  Scientology TV will not address the real questions:

  • Why has Shelly Miscavige not been seen since 2007? Why has David Miscavige locked her up?
  • Why does Scientology think it acceptable to use child labor in its Sea Org?
  • Why does Scientology pay Sea Org members slave wages and force them to work 100+ hour work weeks?
  • Why does Scientology practice Fair Game and Disconnection?
  • Why are Scientologists made to sign contracts that strip them of their legal rights?
  • Why is Scientology run by an unelected Dictator for Life named David Miscavige?
  • Why does Scientology refuse to give refunds and repayments to all who ask as it told the IRS it did? Why did Scientology lie to the IRS about this significant matter?
  • Why does Scientology protect its members that are sexual predators and child molesters?

There are many more questions that Scientology TV will not answer as it is not allowed to tell the truth about what Scientology really is and does. There is no normalizing Scientology because Scientology is abnormal.

Compounding matters is the fact that Scientology TV is operated by Scientology staff members. Per Scientology’s own policy, however, no one may ever rely upon any statements made by Scientology staff members. On this basis alone, we must accordingly reject all statements made by Scientology TV.

Scientology TV is checkmated per Scientology’s own policy:

Statements.by.Staff.Members

The “Meet a Scientologist” videos on Scientology TV are also crippled by the Church of Scientology’s refusal to stand behind anything any Scientology says about the effects of Scientology auditing. Note carefully the last paragraph of this statement from Scientology’s official website:


The next webpage on Scientology’s official site it makes it clear that Scientology guarantees nothing when it comes to auditing:


Here then is the undisclosed basis of the Church of Scientology: The Church itself takes all of the money, promises nothing, and refuses to make any claims regarding the efficacy of Scientology. This is done to avoid lawsuits. Instead, Scientology shifts the burden for the miraculous claims made by L. Ron Hubbard onto its staff members and parishioners. However, the Church will not stand behind any of these claims.

The Church of Scientology will no more stand behind John Mappin’s ridiculous claim that ancient alien “botanical psychiatrists” genetically engineered marijuana than it will any claim that Scientology can dramatically increase one’s IQ; allow one to have happier relationships; or allow people to gain OT powers, telepathic abilities, or any other special abilities. Thus, Scientology can only ever be self-validated based upon the subjective experiences of individual Scientologists. For this reason, Scientology is not a science. Scientology is a wholly subjective experience that arises in a copyrighted space opera in which lurk botanical psychiatrists, Marcab implanters, body thetans, and of course space lord Xenu.

Scientology TV will never tell anyone any of this.

Scientology TV is therefore inherently discreditable because the Church of Scientology does not stand behind anything said on Scientology TV. Moreover, Scientology TV must withhold the actual facts about Scientology from both Scientologists and the public. Scientology TV is therefore best understood as a mediocre propaganda organ and a profligate waste of $100 million in parishioner donations.

Scientology’s many and covert deceptions, hidden as they are in the fine print of the Cult, is yet another reason why Scientology can never be normalized.

  1. Great article… Thanks!

    Joachim’s comment is very telling — it shows the Scientology inferiority complex. Inside the Church of Scientology, they parade around and act like they have super powers. But at the same time, they clearly are aware that the brand identity of Scientology means they will be treated as deluded fools if the general public knows they’re Scientologists. So they desperately hope for something to legitimize them in the eyes of the society that they try to tell themselves they’re above. And since the Ideal Orgs didn’t do that, they now hang their hopes on societal acceptance on Scientology TV. While people may have thought Ideal Org was a bit odd, they’re laughing at Scn.TV.

    “Due to his Scientology-based ignorance, Scientologist Mappin does not understand that marijuana naturally evolved as a plant.”

    Actually, it’s worse than this. Even if you prove to the satisfaction of everyone in the room that marijuana evolved naturally, Mappin would likely continue to believe that those Farsecian “botanic psychiatrists” used their eternal thetans to exercise control over MEST to guide the evolution of marijuana plants so gradually that it only looked like evolution to us benighted wogs. After all, they have billions of years to spend on a project like that. He doesn’t think he’s ignorant, he thinks he’s possessed of special knowledge only available to homo novi.

    1. How true. Scientology has an inferiority complex. This is why Scientology has relied upon a series of things in its grasping for legitimacy. These things have failed to confer any legitimacy upon the Cult in the court of public opinion. Thus, we have the Scientology Scale of Fail, a literal dwindling spiral:

      1. IRS Tax Exemption
      2. Celebrities
      3. Ideal Orgs
      4. Scientology TV

      None of these things has worked. This is because one can’t make a Cult not a Cult. There is no Uncultifying Scientology.

      Scientology TV having failed, what next?

  2. That comment by John Mappin has to be the most insanely stupid anti-cannabis foolishness I’ve ever heard. So I guess Xenu exported the wicked weed via DC-10s? I’m wondering what John has been smoking. Bath salts maybe?

    1. He may be eating Tide pods, given his stage of infirmity. And as an aside, I contacted Xenu and found him to be quite powerful still and with a zest for life. He smiled when I acknowledged him for making the biggest damn game ever!

  3. The highest spiritual enlightment, level, one reaches in Scientolohy seems to replace all examined abberations, confusions, insecurities, with a firm set of love, set, match win space alien soap opera science fiction based confusions.

    Scientology, the only true spiritual journey one is left consumed with having to explain to the world why you are as fucking crazy as you really are.
