Scientology TV, Taryn Teutsch, and L. Ron Hubbard’s Disgusting View of Women

Leila.Grace.Foundation.1

Taryn Teutsch spoke at the Leila Grace Foundation. This foundation is a, “is a non-profit organization that provides sexual assault awareness for college students across the country. It’s main focus is to provide education, which can reduce the risk of sexual assaults on college campuses.” Taryn’s eight year old “fake news Fair Game story” has nothing to do with rape or sexual assault. Why is Taryn trying to exploit the Leila Grace Foundation?

Scientology leader David Miscavige spent $100 million dollars and took seven years to launch Scientology TV. Miscavige boasted that his pricey television network would serve as the Church of Scientology’s “uncorrupted communication line to the billions.”

Despite having Scientology TV at his command, David Miscavige has kept Mike Rinder’s daughter Taryn Teutsch off the $100 million network.

Why?

If Taryn Teutsch’s story is so important then why isn’t David Miscavige giving it prime time repeat coverage on Scientology TV? Aren’t such stories the reason why the $100 million network exists?

David Miscavige has his reasons for demoting Taryn’s story to wog social media and paying click farms so that Taryn can have thousands of fake followers. Miscavige knows that Taryn’s
stale old fabricated story about her father assaulting her mother is bogus. Per the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office report, the events Taryn claims to have happened never actually happened. The Sheriff’s Office said there was no crime, no victim, and only “incidental contact” was made as Mike Rinder attempted to extricate himself while surrounded by a mob of hysterical, angry, and screaming Scientologists.

You can hear Cathy Bernardini, daughter Taryn Teutsch, and the other angry Scientologists  profanely screaming at Mike Rinder on this audio recorded by John Sweeney who worked as a journalist for the BBC from 2001 to 2014. Mike and John were talking on the phone when the April 2010 ambush went down. Cathy Bernardini repeatedly drops the F bomb:

Mike Rinder retreated from the parking lot into the doctor’s office where his girlfriend (and now his wife) Christie Collbran was. The angry Scientology mob tried to follow him into the doctor’s office and the police had to be called. It can all be heard on the Sweeney recording. This tape puts the lie to Taryn Teutsch and Cathy Bernardini’s account. They were both part of the Scientology lynch mob that ambushed Mike. Taryn never shares this audio when she speaks to women’s groups.

Scientology TV would never dare broadcast this recording. To this point, if David Miscavige wanted Taryn’s malicious fantasy told all he need do is order Scientology TV to produce a series of episodes and then air it 24/7 to the billions of people he claims his network can reach. However, as Taryn’s Fair Game narrative about her father is fake news unsupported by the facts, David Miscavige has to keep Scientology TV unsullied by Taryn. This leaves Taryn to press her attack in the social media.

What is heinous in Taryn’s Teutsch’s conduct — and that of the Church of Scientology — is that Taryn is peddling her fabricated story to groups that are concerned with either helping women who are the survivors of rape and sexual harassment or the prevention of rape and sexual harassment through education. Taryn’s fabricated story has nothing to do with rape or sexual assault. So why is Taryn shamelessly exploiting these groups?

L. Ron Hubbard and Rape Culture

Tony Ortega today published a story today in which Christie’s is auctioning off two letters written by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard in 1948. In one of the letters Hubbard writes of the “treatment” he gave to a group of women:

“I went to work and got me a flock of ambulant lunatics from a matrimonial bureau and began to work on them,” he writes. “Six out of ten unfrigidized and went practically nympho and I had a hound’s time trying to undo the over-compensation and normalize it.”

Hubbard brags that he “unfrigidized” women and turned them into veritable nymphomaniacs even as Taryn Teutsch is speaking at the Leila Grace Foundation, a rape prevention group. But it gets worse as Ortega notes:

We’re reminded of another letter Hubbard wrote at about this time, a 1949 letter to another close friend and Hubbard’s literary agent, Forrest Ackerman. Hubbard told “Forrie” that with dianetics…

“…you can rape women without their knowing it, communicate suicide messages to your enemies as they sleep, sell the Arroyo Seco parkway to the mayor for cash, evolve the best way of protecting or destroying communism, and other handy house hold hints. If you go crazy, remember you were warned.”

Taryn Teutsch attempts to weave a fabricated narrative of spousal abuse against the backdrop of L. Ron Hubbard’s heinous rapine boasting to his literary agent Forrest Ackerman that Dianetics will allow men to, “rape women without their knowing it.” And it gets even worse. As covered by Tony Ortega, L. Ron Hubbard wrote a shocking passage in which he excuses male pedophile behavior and blames the child victim:

There are two axioms about mind function with which the auditor should be familiar…The first axiom is of interest to the auditor in his work because with it he can clearly establish whether or not he is confronting a rational reaction. The seven-year-old girl who shudders because a man kisses her is not computing; she is reacting to an engram since at seven she should see nothing wrong in a kiss, not even a passionate one. There must have been an earlier experience, possibly prenatal, which made men or kissing very bad.

Hubbard wrote that a seven year old girl should not react to being passionately kissed by an adult male. Taryn Teutsch ignores Hubbard’s shocking and inexcusable writings about raping women and men passionately kissing seven year old girls — and she ignores it while peddling her fake story at women’s centers that seek to prevent rape and sexual harassment.

In his notorious Admissions, Hubbard wrote of women:

Your own pleasure is not dependent on the woman’s. You are interested only in your own sexual pleasure. If she gets any that is all right but not vital. Many women are not capable of pleasure in sex and anything adverse they say or do has no effect whatever upon your pleasure. Their bodies thrill you. If they repel you, it merely means they themselves are too frigid or prudish to be bothered with. They are unimportant in bed except as they thrill you. Your sexual power is magnificent and they know it. If they are afraid of it, that is their loss. You are not affected by it.

You have no fear if they conceive. What if they do? You do not care. Pour it into them and let fate decide.

The slipperier they are the more you enjoy it because it means their mucous is running madly with pleasure.

There is nothing wrong in the sex act. Nothing any woman may say can change your opinion. You are a master. You are as sensitive and sexy as Pan. Lord help women when you begin to fondle them. You are master of their bodies, master of their souls as you may consciously wish. You have no karma to pay for these acts. You cannot now accumulate karma for you are a master adept.

(Scroll down to the bottom of this page to read Hubbard’s Admissions in PDF form)

Scientologist Taryn Teutsch is attempting to identify herself with rape prevention and sexual harassment prevention groups. She does this even as the founder of Scientology was a demented misogynist whose dehumanization of women and girls and sexual objects is proven by his own words. Hubbard’s Admissions contain his view of women and have long been exposed online. Who do Taryn and OSA think they’re fooling?

In a further attempt to legitimatize her breathtaking hypocrisy and social media fraud, Taryn Teutsch has even posted photos of herself with distinguished women such as Gretchen Carlson and Fox LA’s Christine Devine who did not know their names and images would be used in a Scientology Fair Game smear campaign ultimately aimed at destroying Mike Rinder and Leah Remini for their efforts to expose Scientology.

When informed that her name and image had been misappropriated by an agent of the Church of Scientology, Gretchen Carlson’s response was to ask how to get her picture taken down from Taryn’s Twitter account:

Predictably, the LAPD — an agency that is suspiciously far too friendly with the Church of Scientology — is only too happy to lend its name and command officers to Taryn Teutsch’s smear campaign. The LAPD is always there for Scientology:

Fake Stock Photo Scientologists Support Taryn Teutsch’s Fake News Attack on Mike Rinder

“Alicia Selverson” is not a real person. Rather, the image is actually a stock photo the Church of Scientology purchased to create a fake Scientologist on social media.

Scientology critics exposed Scientologist “Alicia Selverson” as a fake person in 2017. Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs purchased numerous stock photos and pretended these were real Scientologists who were members of OSA’s equally fake STAND League. What OSA didn’t count on was Google reverse imaging. This allowed critics to download images of STAND members and discover these people to be stock photos.

Scientology was caught and exposed for using fake people in a social media fraud. One notable example was fake Scientologist and STAND member “Ellis Craig.” This “Scientologist” turned out to be the male model Gert Rappenecker whose image is for sale as a stock photo:

See our article on fake “stock photo Scientologists” and media fraud: Scientology Doubles Down on its Tax-Exempt Social Media Fraud

The Church of Scientology withdrew its fake stock photo Scientologists from Twitter when it was caught and exposed for fraud. However, Scientology is back to its social media fraud once again. The fraud was caught when Mike Rinder’s daughter Taryn Teutsch posted on her Facebook account about her visit to Walt Disney Studios. This was Taryn’s way of saying that she had gotten a visit at the Disney Company to lodge a bogus complaint about her father.

We covered Taryn Teutsch’s deliberate lies about her father in our previous article Scientology Sea Org Member Taryn Teutsch Engaging in Fake News to Attack Leah Remini’s Show & Her Father Mike Rinder.

The fake stock photo Scientologist Alicia Selverson — and another fake Scientologist named Jason Hammond — appeared in Taryn’s comments section to congratulate her on meeting a Disney executive:

Given that Taryn Teutsch lied about her father assaulting her mother Cathy Bernardini in 2010 — and the Sheriff’s report bears this out — we must ask what else Taryn is lying about. Did she actually get a meeting with a Disney executive? We hardly think so given that Taryn and OSA used two fake stock photo Scientologists to congratulate her on the alleged meeting. If Taryn had a real meeting she could have easily had real publicly known Scientologists congratulate her. The comically inept Scientology Twitter duo of John Alex Wood and his fiancee Gemma come to mind.

Taryn Teutsch and the Church of Scientology can lie all they want — and Scientology lies as the central principle of its own existence — but the internet will most assuredly find and expose their lies. Lying is ingrained in the DNA of Scientology. L. Ron Hubbard taught his PR people to “effectively outflow false data.” For this reason, nothing Scientology says can be believed and Taryn Teutsch is proving this in the course of her Fake News Fair Game campaign of lies against her own father.

Fake Scientologist Jonas Hammond congratulated Taryn Teutsch on her meeting with a Disney exec. Here is fake Scientologist Jonas Hammond as shown on his Facebook page. Judging by his hard and fixed Scientology death stare he surely must be an OTVIII:


NB: OSA took down Jonas’ biker photo from his FB page immediately after I posted it here. OSA’s artless fuckery and use of fake identities show its incompetence in the world of social media.

Scientology Meddling into Shastina Sandman’s US Congressional Campaign

Shastina Sandman is running in the GOP primary to nominate the Republican candidate for Congress in the 48th District of California. As part of her platform, Shastina opposes the widespread psychiatric drugging of children.

Upon learning of her position on psychiatric medications, Scientology sent in an operative from its notorious front group Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR). The operative made it a point to attend a political event he knew Shastina would be attending. There, he gave her a CCHR package of materials.

The CCHR operative never disclosed to he that he was a Scientologist or that CCHR was a part of Scientology. Shastina thereafter discussed and supported CCHR on her podcast. Scientology’s goal is to surreptitiously infiltrate itself into various sectors of society through its front groups.

More information on Scientology’s nefarious front groups is contained in our articles:

How Scientology hooks public officials on its addictive anti-drug front

What Scientology “Social Betterment” Groups are Really All About

It was only when Shastina pressed the CCHR operative about the group’s sources of funding that she learned CCHR was a part of the Church of Scientology. Outraged that she had been misled and lied to by the Church of Scientology, she broke off relations with CCHR.

In the podcast, Shastina also discusses Scientologist Joy Villa and Joy’s foray into politics. Of note is Joy Villa’s insistence that she is a Christian and a Scientologist when, in fact, Scientology does not allow its members to engage in other practices and considers all other religions to be implants. Jeffrey and Shastina also discuss Dr. Sebastian Gorka’s very dim view of Joy Villa.

Shastina Sandman and Jeffrey Augustine at the IE event.

The CCHR agent who meddled in Shastina’s campaign efforts is a long-time Scientologist named Clay Bock. In his 2016 story, VIDEO: City council candidate exposed as Scientology spy in live public hearing, Tony Ortega described how former Scientologist Pauline Lombard outed Clay Bock as a Scientologist who stalked and harassed a Scientology critic. This occured during a Garden Grove City Council meeting. At the time Bock was running for Garden Grove City Council. In the video below we see Pauline describing the harassment she and Bock engaged in at the behest of the Church of Scientology:

In this next video we see Clay Bock stammering and stuttering in reply. Rather than admit he engaged in his harassment, Bock — in typical Scientology style — plays the martyr and claims that his “religion” is being attacked:

Scientology TV: David Miscavige’s $4 Million Dollar per hour Vanity Project

______________________________________________________________________________________

We open our article with a graphic from Scientology TV:

STV.1

This graphic is taken from Scientology’s official website and informs us that Scientology TV launched with only 25 hours of original content (1500 minutes). This is hardly a number to brag about — particularly after Scientology leader David Miscavige spent about $100 million to purchase, equip, and launch Scientology Media Productions and Scientology TV.

David Miscavige purchased the old KCET studio in 2011, so we also must factor in the seven years of time he took to actually get his 25 hours of original Scientology TV content on air. Looked at from a business perspective, this is a terrible and inefficient use of time and money. Like the Ideal Orgs or the Super Power Building, Scientology TV is yet another money-grabbing and financially wasteful Miscavige vanity project which absolutely fails to address the real issues that are destroying the Church of Scientology from within and without.

The $100 million dollar number translates to $4 million dollars per hour for 25 hours of new content. This is an alarming cash burn figure for 25 hours of Scientology content that few people will ever watch or even notice. In terms of contrast, HBO’s Game of Thrones spent $15 million per hour for its final episodes, this according to a 2017 story in Variety penned by and The difference between Scientology TV and Game of Thrones is the return on investment. According to Forbes, 16.1 million people watched the first episode of Game of Thrones final season. Game of Thrones was crucial to HBO’s “$1.6 billion in revenue and $583 million in operating income during the first quarter of 2017” per the Forbes article.

While it is not realistic to expect something as mediocre as Scientology TV to compete with HBO’s smash hit Game of Thrones, it is realistic to expect David Miscavige to be a better financial steward of the donations made by Scientology’s parishioners. Miscavige’s profligate spend of $4 million per hour on content is excessive when we consider that Scientology TV is fundamentally propaganda that seeks to deflect attention away from the real issues of Scientology’s rapacious greed; its wanton exploitation of Sea Org members; the Cult’s use of child labor; and Scientology’s psycho-terrorist practices of Disconnection and Fair Game.

In their piece, Ryan and Littleton sum up the costs of contemporary television production:

At a moment when the television industry is grappling with a massive increase in the number of shows being produced, the ripple effects of Peak TV are surfacing in virtually every line item in a typical TV series budget.

Fueled by the rise of streaming heavyweights that don’t play by the same financial rules as traditional TV players, costs are soaring for everything from location scouting to renting equipment to securing post-production facilities…The estimates on the cost of content that emerged from these interviews peg the typical range of the production budget for high-end cable and streaming dramas at $5 million-$7 million an hour, while single-camera half hours on broadcast and cable run from $1.5 million to more than $3 million.

David Miscavige is spending big money like a Hollywood mogul. However, his spending will not result in the multibillion dollar annual earnings that successful Hollywood moguls deliver. Scientology TV will likely result in very little for the Church of Scientology except to mislead its parishioners into thinking that Scientology is growing and has surmounted decades of withering revelations about the corrupt and abusive practices of this “pay as you go” business that masquerades as a church.

Miscavige’s Scientology TV programming deliberately withholds Scientology’s space opera cosmology that is populated by Xenu, volcanoes, and body thetans. Scientology TV will also definitely never show the actual dollar costs of Scientology in which Scientologists must pay $500-$1000 per hour for auditing. At these prices, it is quite easy to spend $500,000 — or more — on your way up Scientology’s Bridge to OTVIII:

Scn.Price.List.6

This next Scientology graphic informs us that a Scientology Media Productions unit called “Central Ingest” receives 720 hours of raw footage everyday from Scientology shoot crews. This raw footage becomes Scientology TV:

STV.3

720 hours per day x 365 days in a year = 262,800 hours of raw footage that Central Ingest has to edit into original content to fill the 8,760 broadcast hours per year on Scientology TV’s 24/7/365 schedule. At $4 million an hour to create new content, Miscavige will be increasingly forced to cycle through the same content over and over simply to conserve cash.

Look at the bottom line: With a $4 million dollar per hour burn rate to create new Scientology TV content, 250 hours of content would cost one billion dollars. Scientology TV has the very real potential to bankrupt Scientology. Predictively, therefore, Miscavige will be forced to scale back his Scientology TV operation within a few months and reduce production costs to $50,000 per hour or less. I say this because, in its present form, Scientology TV is financially unsustainable.

Miscavige made his big initial investment in the Scientology Media Productions studio. However, this does not necessarily his mean his costs-per-hour of production time will go down. Television is an expensive business and Miscavige has had to bring in outside talent as the Sea Org simply cannot do professional television production on its own. Without professional outside help, the 262,800 hours of raw footage each year will quickly become a nightmarish backlog that has to be reviewed, scripted into a narrative, edited, and viewed for approval and release. Miscavige’s micromanaging style will also become a major bottleneck if he cannot delegate sufficient authority to release hundreds or thousands of hours of original content each year.

Scientology TV is all cost and no profit. Conversely, Scientology auditing is almost pure profit given Sea Org labor costs and the fact that all of Scientology Orgs are paid for. There are very little overhead costs for Scientology to deliver auditing. And of course IAS donations are pure profit as nothing is offered in return except cheap trophies.

Scientology TV’s initial performance has thus far targeted the safe low-hanging fruit, i.e. successful and non-controversial Scientologists: The banjo-making Deering’s; a skateboarder; a couple that makes custom lighting fixtures and chandeliers; and other innocuous people. Oddly, no Scientology celebrities have been featured. Conspicuously absent are Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Laura Prepon, etc. Even the Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss has been absent; this perhaps due to her less than charming behavior at the 2017 Emmy awards:

Elisabeth_Moss_Emmys

Once Scientology has picked the low hanging fruit then what? Will it show the gritty reality of bankrupt Scientologists such as Richie Acunto whose $10 million dollar IAS Scientology trophy ignominiously wound up for sale on eBay?

Will Scientology TV do an episode on how everyday Scientologists write Knowledge Reports on each other in the snitching culture of Scientology? Will Scientology TV show how female Sea Org members are not provided with feminine hygiene products and must pay for tampons and such from their earnings of .50 cents per hour or less? When will Scientology TV tell the real truth about what Scientology actually is and does?

Scientology TV very predictably went on the attack against Psychiatry and Psychiatric drugs. Anyone could see this was coming; likewise we also knew that the phony PR stories and fake heroics of Scientology’s Volunteer Ministers would be a part of the broadcast equation. Very predictably too were the stories of how The Way to Happiness saved Colombia.

Yet when will Scientology TV showcase Scientology’s notorious Office of Special Affairs where all of Scientology’s psycho-terrorist Fair Game operations are planned and managed? When do we get to see actual Scientology salespeople pressure Scientologists into going another $40,000 into debt to raise their IAS Patron status? When do we get to see a Scientologist solo auditing their body thetans for an hour or more everyday behind a locked door in their home?

The answer is that we will never see the cruel and miserable realities of everyday Scientology.

All that we will we will ever see on Scientology TV is Scientology PR; its attacks on Psychiatry; fake news from its phony front groups; and Nation of Islam members who have become practicing Scientologists. Scientology TV is nothing more than Cult TV.

In the final analysis, Scientology TV is David Miscavige’s $4 million dollar per hour vanity project meant to burnish his legacy within the insular confines of Scientology. The Scientology dictator made sure everyone knew Scientology TV was his baby when he shamelessly featured himself as the centerfold in a four-page wide photo-spread in the recent edition of International Scientology News:

The photo was taken at the LRH Birthday Event at which Miscavige announced Scientology TV. Miscavige can be seen behind his podium onstage at the center of the photo. He is surrounded by his adoring and euphoric throngs who can’t believe that Scientology finally has a TV channel a scant 71 years after DuMont, ABC, NBC, and CBS began broadcasting in the period 1947-1948.

America’s first big religious broadcaster was Bishop Fulton J. Sheen who began airing his show in 1951; this was the same year L. Ron Hubbard fled New Jersey for Wichita, Kansas after his first Dianetics Foundation went bankrupt and he was facing criminal charges in New Jersey for teaching medicine without a license. That Scientology is 70 years late in adopting television broadcasting is nothing new. Scientology spent tens of millions of dollars to build and open a 276,000-square-foot book-publishing factory in 2009 when paper books were racing into digital form on Kindle, tablets, and pads. Scientology’s Bridge Publications is still selling books and DVD’s in 2018. The Dianetics Kit sells for $75.00 and yet it points to a serious problem:

Scientology TV cannot broadcast anything contained in the Dianetics Kit or in any other products sold by Bridge Publications. To do so would cut into the revenues of Bridge. The hope of Scientology TV, therefore, is to get people to buy Scientology goods and services. And yet at $75.00 per Dianetics kit, Bridge Publications would have to sell 53,333 kits to offset the $4 million dollar cost of one hour of new content production by Scientology TV. This will never happen. Thus, one can begin to see the intractable problems created by David Miscavige’s extravagant and wasteful spending on Scientology TV. The man is truly fiddling while Rome burns.

Despite these glaring problems, the fawning prose describing the event when Scientology TV was announced to the faithful was downright embarrassing and helps to explain why Scientology is a Cult:

DM.STV.Praise.1 001

The schedule for Scientology TV this weekend from Friday, April 6, 2018 at 6:00 PM through Sunday, April 8, 2018 shows the highly repetitive programming that will quickly become the major pitfall of Scientology TV — this unless David Miscavige commits to huge burn rates of cash in the millions of dollars per hour to churn out new content. Seen from this perspective, the Ideal Orgs were a much better grade of failure for David Miscavige as they at least left Scientology owning real estate. In the case of Scientology TV there is no tangible return on the investment. Of course, Scientology claims that its TV channel will “boom” Scientology. However, the Cult says this same thing about all of its scammy cash-grabs: GAT I, GAT II, the Basics, Ideal Orgs, the Super Power Building, etc.

Below: This weekend’s Scientology TV schedule is shown on a PDF. The schedule repeats episodes on Scientologists Binod Sharma; James Speiser; a mother who became a media consultant; and The Way to Happiness. Sunday night features an L. Ron Hubbard marathon in which the Founder can be heard droning on at length in his various lectures. Does it get any more exciting than this?

Mike Rinder, Church of Scientology’s Former Spokesman On Fair Game & Season 3 of Aftermath

Scientology’s Fair Game puts the lie to Scientology TV. It does so by drawing the attention of the public to the fact that it is business as usual inside of Scientology. Mike describes how David Miscavige orders his OSA minions to do something about Leah’s show and how this results in actions that are irrational and actually harm Scientology by exposing its sleazy Fair Game tactics.

Mike then recounts the series of events that led him to escape from the Church of Scientology. This leads into a conversation in which Mike describes the internal justice system of Scientology and why the Church covers up sexual molestation and the other crimes and misdeeds committed by Scientologists.

Mike ends by talking about the Aftermath Foundation and how it exists to help Scientologists get started again in life after fleeing Scientology with literally nothing.

Scientology: Save the Planet with Monthly Installment Payments!


The Scientology Cult has long peddled the falsehood that it is the “fastest growing religion in the world.” However, the International Association of Scientologists (IAS) ad shown above is clear evidence that large single donations are drying up. Hence the IAS is now begging for Scientologists to make smaller regular monthly payments. In yet another Scientology absurdity, we are told that the planet is on the brink of extinction due to the specter of Psychiatry, nuclear weapons, British bankers, Marcabs, etc. However, rest assured that your small monthly donations to the IAS can stave off the Apocalypse.

In a further sign of Scientology desperation, we find the bloated and scammy Scientology slush fund known as the IAS has set its default monthly donation to a meager $100 USD:

Back when Scientology was on its high horse, any Scientologist offering a paltry $100 donation would have been hauled into Ethics for not sacrificing their big assets to Scientology. After all, as L. Ron Hubbard had written nothing is more important than Scientology:

“Advanced Courses [in Scientology] are the most valuable service on the planet. Life insurance, houses, cars, stocks, bonds, college savings, all are transitory and impermanent… There is nothing to compare with Advanced Courses. They are infinitely valuable and transcend time itself.” – L. Ron Hubbard, Flag Mission Order 375

The IAS asking for small monthly donations suggests that middle class Scientologists have been stripped of their “life insurance, houses, cars, stocks, bonds, college savings” in previous Scientology reg cycles. The IAS is now reduced to bargaining.

If one keeps up on religious blogs relating to church finance and tax law — and I do — an increasing number churches over the past five years have been turning to fixed monthly payment programs that draft the parishioner’s bank account, PayPal account, or charge their credit card. This arrangement allows churches to have a stable monthly cash flow while avoiding the sharp seasonal fluctuations in income due to the winter holidays and summer vacations. Thus, the IAS asking for monthly donations seems to be an attempt to stabilize cash flow by encouraging Scientologists to donate smaller monthly amounts as opposed to giving bankrupting and credit-destroying massive single donations.

Nevertheless, as the IAS is believed to have cash reserves of $1.5 billion, asking for $100 per month can be seen as David Miscavige digging under the cushions on the couches of Scientologists for loose change. The IAS is truly obscene as it sits on massive cash reserves and still squeezes Scientologists like a dishrag. The IAS does not need $100 a month from anyone. If anything, the IAS needs to become financially transparent and tell Scientologists how much money it has and how much money it gives out in the form of grants, payments for real estate, etc.

There is another data point in the form above to note. The form says “Join the thousands of Scientologists who have signed up to make automatic monthly contributions to the IAS.” Again, we were led to believe that Scientology has millions of members. However, the IAS informs us that only thousands of Scientologists are donating monthly. And notice the language: Not “hundreds of thousands” or “tens of thousands” but rather only “thousands of Scientologists.”

Other facts to be gleaned from the IAS website:

1. There are new membership fees:

2. IAS uses Scientologist as commissioned salespeople. As such, they can earn 5% or 10% commissions of what they rake in from other Scientologists. What other “religion” has commission salespeople?

3. The IAS has what it calls “Honor Balls” and sells tickets to these garish events. The keynote speaker at the IAS balls is, you guessed it, David Miscavige. COB has had a lock on this gig since the 1980’s. What we want to know if he gets 10% commission as an IAS registrar. He would be entitled to 10% as a Professional IAS Field Disemminator per the rules shown above.  We believe this is where David Miscavige has raked in his personal fortune.

4. Per the contract Scientologists must sign when donating to the IAS, all donations to the IAS are nonrefundable:


5. The IAS Honor Balls are one of the few places one can see David Miscavige in his fullblown lunatic attacks on Psychiatry and his orgies of self-love:

Cult Paradox: Why Scientology Is Collapsing As a Function of Its Burgeoning Real Estate Empire

The Church of Scientology is so heavily entrenched in Downtown Clearwater that it has become harmful to the community. Scientology does not pay taxes on its huge portfolio of tax-exempt properties in Clearwater and yet demands police and fire services, uses the roads, freeways, and other public infrastructure. Worse, Scientology has driven businesses, redevelopment, and tourism dollars out of Downtown Clearwater, thus further depressing the economy and tax base of Clearwater. In 2017, Scientology even announced its brazen plans for what amounted to a hostile corporate takeover of Downtown Clearwater. The details are quite alarming as can be seen in an excellent and highly detailed article by Tracy McManus of The Tampa Bay Times.

Compounding matters, John P. Capitalist recently noted that many public Scientologists are moving out of Clearwater, Florida to escape the never-ending onslaught of Scientology regges. In  Scientology “registrars” are called “regges” and are actually salespeople. All across Scientology, the regges demand donations on a daily basis. It is very bad in Clearwater and Los Angeles where the largest concentrations of Scientologists live. John P. wrote of the public Scientologists in Clearwater:

…I’ve heard from several sources that a number of longtime members have moved out [of Clearwater] in order to avoid visits from desperate “regges” in the middle of the night ringing the doorbell and demanding cash. They’re claiming to be moving for innocuous reasons like “to be closer to the grandkids,” but apparently they’re just tired of the stress and want to deal with the cult from a distance. It’s not clear how many people are making the move, but even a few sure makes it sound like the rank-and-file (all those dentists, chiropractors and small business owners) are reaching a saturation point.

It is quite true that Scientology regges do show up unannounced at any hour of the day or night at the homes and businesses of public Scientologists to demand money. I personally know dozens of former Scientologists to whom this happened. In many cases, when the public Scientologists refused to answer their front door, the rampaging regges went into backyards and beat on the patio doors in an attempt to flush their quarry from hiding. Deplorable conduct but it is nevertheless true.

As Scientology regges are usually Sea Org members, public Scientologists who treat them rudely or object to their intrusive tactics can get in very serious trouble with the Church for doing so. These salespeople are deemed to be helping “Clear the Planet” and so their unwanted intrusions are considered justified by Church management. For this reason, public Scientologists have taken to refusing to answer their doors and have stopped answering their phones as a means to avoid the greedy Scientology fundraisers. These hapless public Scientologists choose to hide as they know the regges have complete immunity to engage in predatory and intrusive tactics that include invading the privacy and sanctity of one’s own home.

John P.’s observation of the flight of public Scientologists from Clearwater led me to create this simplified graph and the accompanying commentary:

J. Swift’s Scientology Real Estate Axiom #1: The more real estate the Cult of Scientology owns in a given area, the more public Scientologists will flee the area, refuse to accept regging phone calls, attend regging briefings, or accept unannounced and intrusive home regging visits. This “Public Scientologist Money Flight” occurs as a function of an ever-increasing number of Scientology fundraising personnel occupying buildings that contain competing Orgs, Scientology front groups, and Scientology fundraising programs.

In practice, each new piece of Scientology real estate becomes a standalone business operating unit within the Scientology corporate structure. These standalone operating units are called “Orgs” or “Social Betterment Groups” and each has its own weekly fundraising quotas.  Scientology also has fundraising programs for both current and planned programs. These fundraising activities also have weekly financial quotas. All of these separate business operating units result in intense competition within Scientology for a shrinking pool of donations.

TAX EXEMPT STATUS + ENDLESS FUNDRAISING = SCIENTOLOGY REAL ESTATE EMPIRE

As a condition of receiving tax exemption, US tax law requires religious tax exempt organizations to spend money in the public benefit. For example, if Catholic churches  provide free services to the homeless this is seen as helping to reduce the tax burden on the US Government. Hence, tax exemption is viewed as a form of exchange. L. Ron Hubbard, however, taught that giving anyone anything for free was wrong. Hubbard said charity was “rewarding a downstat” as it rewarded people for doing nothing. Hubbard’s 1950’s view of poverty was that poor people were lazy; did not want to work; were worthless; and only wanted free welfare checks and handouts.

Hubbard’s 1950 view of poverty became Scientology doctrine. Given Scientology’s doctrinal refusal to engage in charity, the only things Scientology can actually spend its money on are real estate, self-promotion, and financing its perpetual state of warfare with those people and groups it deems enemies. This spending plan results in the Scientology we see today: A self-aggrandizing, angry, paranoid, and hostile cultic group characterized by its bloated real estate holdings and its insane and lavishly-financed wars against former members, critics, the media, and those governments that oppose Scientology and correctly see it as a for-profit business.

THE PARADOX IN WHICH THE SCIENTOLOGY CULT IS TRAPPED

The endless purchasing of real estate by Scientology is paradoxically and ultimately self-destructive as it acts to exponentially increase fundraising pressures amongst competing Scientology business units while simultaneously driving membership and donations out of the Church. Scientology incessantly boasts that the growth in square footage it owns proves Scientology is growing. However, this is a misdirection. While Scientology’s real estate portfolio is indeed growing, the Cult quietly sweeps the real story of its shocking membership decline under the rug.

Scientology’s Ideal Org program was a debacle which proved that the more real estate Scientology purchases and accumulates, the fewer members it will have. The Ideal Org scam drove untold thousands of people out of Scientology due to incessant fundraising demands. Likewise, the Basics book campaign was a giant $100,000,000+ cynical money grab that saw legions of people leave Scientology.

The pointless accumulation of real estate by Scientology is a function of its tax exemption and L. Ron Hubbard’s policy that endless fundraising must occur. What Hubbard called “new money” must be brought into the Scientology each week. The smallest possible portion of this “new money” is spent paying expenses. Hubbard mandated that the remaining money be locked away in untouchable reserves. Hubbard purposely designed Scientology to generate large cash reserves. This is why Scientology’s main focus is on money. Because the IRS does not allow excessive capital accumulation by tax exempt entities, however, Scientology spends part of its reserves on the items described above.

Scientology also spends the minimum amount of money possible on its Sea Org labor force. Sea Org members live far below the US poverty level of $13,860 in annual income for an individual. Legally speaking, Sea Org members are not employees and are classed as religious volunteers. As such, they receive a meager weekly stipend of $50, usually less, plus room and board. Scientology’s goal is to spend the least possible amount of money on Sea Org members while demanding the maximum amount of production. Sea Org members routinely work 80-100 hours per week. A Sea Org work week is six and one half days in duration.  One half day is given to do laundry and clean one’s berthing area. Scientology’s slave labor program also applies to the child labor Scientology uses in the Sea Org.

FLAG LAND BASE

As an illustration of my premise, Scientology’s Flag Land Base in Clearwater, Florida has numerous Orgs, Scientology front groups, and  fundraising programs that compete with each other daily for an ever-shrinking volume of donations. Here is what a Scientologist can be expected to donate to, or pay for, on a trip to Flag Land Base; this list is not exhaustive:

1. Flag Service Organization — Mandatory donations for auditing services and courses
2. The International Association of Scientologists — Scientology’s multibillion dollar slush fund
3. Lodgings at one of the several Scientology-owned hotels
4. Meals at one of the several Scientology-owned restaurants
5. Citizens Commission on Human Rights — The rabid anti-Psychiatry component of Scientology
6. The Way to Happiness Foundation — A Scientology Front Group
7. Youth for Human Rights — A Scientology Front Group
8. United for Human Rights — A Scientology Front Group
9. Foundation for a Drug Free World — A Scientology Front Group
10. Applied Scholastics — A Scientology Front Group
11. Criminon — A Scientology Front Group
12. Volunteer Ministers — A Scientology Front Group
13. The Basics Book Campaign — Fundraising to put L. Ron Hubbard’s books into libraries
14. The Ideal Org Campaign — Fundraising to buy more real estate called “Ideal Orgs”
15. The Archival Project — Fundraising to store L. Ron Hubbard’s works in nuclear proof vaults
16. Advanced Payments — Scientologists are asked to donate money now future services later
17. The L. Ron Hubbard Hall — a planned auditorium in Clearwater

MONASTERY SCIENTOLOGY

Monastery Scientology is a term I coined in 2008 when I predicted that Scientology will be drained of its middle class parishioners and become a haven for only the wealthiest of Scientologists who can afford to stay in the game. Monastery Scientology is becoming inevitable as only the wealthiest and most status-obsessed Scientologists will remain in the Cult of Scientology.

At present, the Cult is in a Palace of Versailles phase in which wealthy Scientologists vie for David Miscavige’s attention and favor as signified by a competition for larger and gaudier IAS statuses and trophies. These statuses and trophies require wealthy Scientologists to increase ever-larger amounts of cash to Scientology.

The prime example of failure in this pointless Palace of Versailles status race was Scientologist Richie Acunto. After donating ten million dollars to Scientology, his Survival Insurance company went bankrupt. And to his ignominy — and that of Scientology —  Richie’s ten million dollar IAS trophy languished in a storage locker. When Richie failed to pay rent on the storage locker, its contents were sold at auction. Richie’s $10,000,000 trophy was sold on eBay to the highest bidder. The Church of Scientology was likely the highest bidder as the Acunto trophy has never been seen since it was sold on eBay. Again, another inconvenient matter swept under the rug. Richie Acunto has been long forgotten by Scientology.

This Palace of Versailles phase is characterized by a never-ending series of useless galas awash in flimsily contrived stories of imagined Scientology global triumphs, wildly inflated and nonsensical statistics, and garish trophies and awards. One of Scientology’s more patently absurd claims is that the mere distribution of its insipid Way to Happiness booklet reduced crime in Colombia by 50 percent.

In the terse no-nonsense language of American corporate life these events can be correctly described as circle jerks.

Palm Beach Post: Scientologists ‘committed fraud upon the court’ West Palm lawyer claims


Rivenbark/Maurice

Palm Beach Post staff writer Jane Musgrave just released a story stating that Luis and Rocio Garcia’s attorney Ted Babbitt has asked Federal judge James Whittemore to declare the Church of Scientology’s arbitration process to be a fraud upon the court. This move on the part of the Garcia’s is electrifying as it goes to the very core of Scientology’s notorious bad faith financial dealings with its own parishioners and former parishioners. Musgrave writes in her article:

In court papers filed in U.S. District Court in Tampa, attorney Theodore Babbitt contends the church made no pretense of conducting a fair and impartial hearing on his clients’ claims that it defrauded them out of $465,000 before they became disillusioned with its tactics. He is asking U.S. District Judge James Whittemore to reverse his decision to allow the Garcias’ lawsuit to be decided by Scientologists in arbitration and instead order that it be decided in a court of law.

“The arbitration was a mockery that no judge should countenance,” Babbitt wrote.

While he suspected the arbitration – the first ever conducted by the church – would be tantamount to “a kangaroo court,” the reality was far worse, he said.

The Garcia’s challenge to Scientology’s first-ever arbitration will be widely watched by former members who have been defrauded by the Church of Scientology — and particularly for advanced payments on services that were never delievered.

Update: Please see Tony Ortega’s article on the Garcia case.

We at the Scientology Money Project consider Scientology’s predatory practice of taking money in advance — and then refusing to refund that money when a person decides to no longer practice Scientology — crosses the line from civil fraud into conspiracy and criminal racketeering. It is our hope that Scientology’s top executives and lawyers will one day be charged in a RICO action. We consider that these people are criminals hiding behind religion. By L. Ron Hubbard’s own definition a criminal is someone who wants something for nothing:

First consider a group which takes in money but does not deliver anything in exchange. This is called rip-off. It is the “exchange” condition of robbers, tax men, governments and other criminal elements. — L. Ron Hubbard – HCO PL 10 Sep 82

The Church of Scientology is criminal in this practice per the definition of its own Founder.

One the four contracts all Scientologists must sign is called the “Religious Services Enrollment Application, Agreement, and General Release.” In this contract, one gives up the legal right to sue the Church of Scientology or to have a lawyer represent them in any dispute with Scientology. One also surrenders the right to a refund of any donations they have made to the organization. (For more details see our article DOX: How Scientology ensnares the unsuspecting in a series of binding contracts). Excerpt:

Kaya Jones on Scientologist Joy Villa

In an interview with Halsey News Network, Pussycat Dolls member Kaya Jones offers her insights on Joy Villa’s character and deceptions. “The amount of lies that I caught was super-alarming,” Jones notes. As a member of the Pussycat Dolls, Kaya Jones enjoyed tremendous fame. Having experienced fame, Kaya Jones suggests that Joy Villa is “scared that this is going to go away.” Trump supporters have now seen through Joy Villa’s opportunism, machinations, and deceptions.

Fast forward to 13:27 forward:

Background: Scientologist Joy Villa gained wide recognition for wearing her MAGA dress to the 2017 Grammy awards. Villa used this recognition to opportunistically position herself as a part of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) movement. Vinnie James immediately spotted Joy Villa as a phony and began working tirelessly to expose her — and often at the price of being wrongly criticized for many months. Vinnie Jones stood his ground.

Joy Villa got on President Trump’s radar and he made a tweet urging her to run for political office. Villa used this tweet to ingratiate herself the White House circles where she had her photo taken with Ivanka Trump and tweeted this widely. Joy Villa deceived true Trump supporters into believing she was something she was not. Scientologist Joy Villa claimed to be a Christian. This is not possible as Scientology forbids “other practices” as we explain below.

Joy Villa announced that she was exploring a run for the US Congress. She formed an exploratory committee as required by US election law. From my perspective, Villa has been using her exploratory committee largely for purposes of self-promotion. Right around the New Year the MAGA people began catching onto Joy Villa’s fraud. At present, Joy Villa seems to be self-imploding in her self-aggrandizing quest for fame. No one is fooled.

And then a bombshell: Tony Ortega exclusively broke the story of Joy Villa’s 2007 domestic violence arrest. Villa had withheld her arrest from the public. Instead, she has pretended to be a Christian when Scientology told the IRS that Scientologists are expected to drop their religious affiliations and become Scientologists on an exclusive basis. In the secret 1993 settlement between IRS and Scientology, David Miscavige’s attorney Monique Yingling told the IRS:

“Although there is no policy or Scriptural mandate expressly requiring Scientologists to renounce other religious beliefs or membership in other churches, as a practical matter Scientologists are expected to and do become fully devoted to Scientology to the exclusion of other faiths. As Scientologists, they are required to look only to Scientology Scriptures for the answers to the fundamental questions of their existence and to seek enlightenment only from Scientology. Thus, a Scientologist who grew up in the Jewish faith who continues formal membership in his synagogue and attends services with his family violates no Scientology policy or tenet. On the other hand, such a person is not permitted to mix the practice of his former faith into his practice and understanding of Scientology so as to alter orthodox Scientology in any way.”

The reason Scientologists are “expected to and do become fully devoted to Scientology to the exclusion of other faiths” is because L. Ron Hubbard considered all other religions to be what he called “R6” alien implants. The Church of Scientology will not disclose to the public Hubbard’s secret teachings about Jesus Christ, Islam, or any other religion. Only the most indoctrinated Scientologists get to read Hubbard’s secret teachings about Jesus Christ. As a public service, therefore, the Scientology Money Project discloses these teachings.

The first of Hubbard’s secret teachings are from the original OT VIII level. These materials are corroborated by George White who did the original OT VIII level and read the materials himself. White discusses this in his book Lucifer’s Bridge: Scientology’s Lost Paradise. The materials are corroborated by others as well. In the original OT VIII. Hubbard called himself the Antichrist and denounced Jesus as a “lover of young men and boys.” L. Ron Hubbard:

No doubt you are familiar with the Revelations section of the Bible where various events are predicted. Also mentioned is a brief period of time in which an archenemy of Christ, referred to as the Antichrist, will reign and his opinions will have sway. All this makes for very fantastic, entertaining reading but there is truth in it. This Antichrist represents the forces of Lucifer (literally, the “light bearer” or “light bring”), Lucifer being a mythical representation of the forces of enlightenment, the Galactic Confederacy. My mission could be said to fulfill the Biblical promise represented by this brief Antichrist period. During this period there is a fleeting opportunity for the whole scenario to be effectively derailed, which would make it impossible for the mass Markabian landing (Second Coming) to take place. The Second Coming is designed, among other things, to trigger a rapid series of destructive events….

For those of you whose Christian toes I may have stepped on, let me take the opportunity to disabuse you of some lovely myths. For instance, the historic Jesus was not nearly the sainted figure he has been made out to be. In addition to being a lover of young boys and men, he was given to uncontrollable bursts of temper and hatred that belied the general message of love, understanding and other typical Marcab PR. You have only to look at the history his teachings inspired to see where it all inevitably leads. It is historic fact and yet man still clings to the ideal, so deep and insidious is the biologic implanting. It is a good joke that the Galactic Confederacy is associated with the Serpent in the Garden, the Beast and other emissaries of the “Prince of Darkness.” Yet in certain passages and esoteric interpretations of the Bible (much of which has been taken out and effectively suppressed for centuries) as well as the Kabbalah, the truth reveals itself quite nicely for the clever and the ungullible.

Those Scientologists who completed the original OT VIII level reacted so badly to the release these materials that Scientology withdrew the materials and released a redacted version of OT VIII.

When the original OT VIII level materials were introduced into the court record by Steven Fishman in Church of Scientology International v. Fishman and Geertz, (Case No. CV 91-6426 (HLH (Tx) U.S. District Court for the Central District of California), the Church and claimed hem to be spurious.

However, what puts the lie to this is that when Scientology obtained a federal warrant to raid Arnie Lerma’s house in 1995 to confiscate OT materials, Scientology seized the original OT VIII material and catalogued it as HCO BULLETIN OF 5 MAY 1980 with RTC as the copyright owner. Scientology used the materials as evidence against Lerma until it was realized they would be scandalous in the public court record. HCO BULLETIN OF 5 MAY 1980 was subsequently dropped as evidence after initially being introduced as evidence. This begs the question: If the original OT VIII materials were spurious, then why did Scientology seize them in the raid?

Read OT VIII Part B from the court record on Karin Spaink’s blog.

Writing under his screen name Path of Buddha, George White posted a comment on Marty Rathbun’s blog in response to a question about the original OT VIII materials:

Windhorse,

The anti-Christ OT8 that I did on the Freewinds was on July 17, 1988. I met miscavige on the Freewinds just before he canned it. I remember because I met him on the main deck for a supper buffet. My two FSM’s did it before me and very candidly we discussed the anti-Christ, the synthetic Karma, and the spontaneous combustion of anyone who could not get it all right. Hugh Urban agrees with me as he has also researched it at Ohio State. The religious department there has known about at for about five years. It is common knowledge in academic circles

Much Metta,
George M. White

Bob Grant did the original OT VIII on the Freewinds and also confirmed on Rathbun’s blog that it contained the Antichrist reference and Hubbard’s remark that Jesus was a lover of young men and boys.

In this next Fair Use excerpt of Hubbard speaking, we pick up his lecture where he is talking about how everyone on this planet was “implanted” to believe they had been crucified. Hence, Hubbard says the man on the Cross is an “everyman” implant shared by all humans. Hubbard then says there was no Christ:

In his teachings, Hubbard attacked Jesus and Christianity as implants:

“Also the Christian Church used (and uses) implanting (with a squirrel version of the “7s”). These gangsters were the Nicomidians (sic) from lower Egypt who were chased out for criminal practices (implanting officials). They took over the Niocene (sic) Creed before the year zero, invented Christ (who comes from the crucifixion in R6 75m years ago) and implanted their way to “power”. The original Nicomidians (sic) date about 600 BC and people who were Christ date at 75m years ago. ” – L. Ron Hubbard, Resistive Cases, Former Therapy, HCOB 23 Sep 1968.

For a long while, some people have been cross with me for my lack of co-operation in believing in a Christian Heaven, God and Christ. I have never said I didn’t disbelieve in a Big Thetan but there was certainly something very corny about Heaven et al. Now I have to apologize. There was a Heaven. Not too unlike, in cruel betrayal, the heaven of the Assassins in the 12th Century who, like everyone else, dramatized the whole track implants – if a bit more so. The symbol of the crucified Christ is very apt indeed. It’s the symbol of a thetan betrayed.”, – L. Ron Hubbard, HCOB 11 May, 1963

“Further, we have our hands on an appalling bit of technology where the world is concerned. With rapidity and a Meter it can be shown that Heaven is a false dream and that the old religion was based on very painful lie, cynical betrayal.” – L. Ron Hubbard, HCOB 11 May, 1963

“Religion does much to keep the assumption in restimulation, being basically a control mechanism used by those who have sent the preclear into a body. You will find the cross as a symbol all over the universe, and the Christ legend as implant in preclears a million years ago.”, Professional Auditors Bulletins, vol. 2, p. 26 , copyright 1954.

“Now we say this thing called a thetan is capable of producing all sorts of things, and we say this is THE person. So therefore, we differ enormously from the Christian statements on the subject. They say, ‘you, son, must save your soul.’ The fellow says, ‘I don’t have one!’ So therefore, the christian religion cannot possibly be true…and they lose all kinds of converts this way. Somebody saving his soul is doing something very interesting. He evidently has something set up over here, that has probably, mass, that he says is his soul! And then he goes about saving it and it turns out to be a demon circuit called “Mama,” or something. Now he expects THIS to go to heaven. (laughs)”, Clearing Congress Lecture (videotape), L. Ron Hubbard, 1958.

” Men, then … a whole lot of people will say carelessly ‘Well, God is everywhere’, remember that this was an idea which was introduced rather lackerly in christian religion. The God of which they speak, of whom they speak continually, eh Yahweh, Lord knows how it’s produ.. pronounced, because it is so secret, that nobody is really is supposed to be able to pronounce it, so they ommitted all of the vowels in the word, and they spell it only with it’s consonants. So Lord knows how this word is to be pronounced, but the more agreed upon pronunciation amongst scholars so they can talk about it is Yahweh. And this is the Christian God. But he lives in a trunk with a leopard skin. That’s right, that’s the full story of it. “

” Old therapies include the 2000 yr ago plus or minus Aoscuplepian drug treatment (hillabore) which produced a conclusion and coma, and in which the nut practitioner made up as a God and “visited” the patient in a “dream”. This outfit was all over the ancient world. — – L. Ron Hubbard, Resistive Cases, Former Therapy, HCOB 23 Sep 1968. “

And finally, David Miscavige speaking on the importance of Scientology:

“For while you’ve often heard it said ‘we are the only major religion to emerge in this 20th century,’ the truth is more than that. In fact, we are the only new religion. Not a reinterpretation of some ancient doctrine, but the only original scriptural voice in the last 2,000 years.”, International Scientology News #7, David Miscavige, March 13, 1998

Look at the arrogance of Scientology cult leader David Miscavige: He states that Scientology is the “only original scriptural voice in the last 2,000 years.” What Miscavige fails to mention is Scientology’s $460,000 price tag to reach OT VIII only to discover that Jesus was an alien implant!
