(It's possible that no one will see this as Alanzo is busy baiting ESMB at this time. No doubt Alanzo is a master baiter, nonetheless...) If anyone can find the old Bernie.cncfamily.com site, that's the template that Alanzo is copying. Either it's down, or I'm prohibited from entering, so I can't link to it to show anyone. Bernie was a faux "reasonable critic of Scientology" who criticized critics of Scientology. The Bernie site is out of date and old. The purpose of Bernie was to nullify critics of Miscavige Scientology (Scientology Inc./the Cult), and to nullify criticisms of Miscavige Scientology (Scientology Inc./the Cult.), while also appearing to be a critic of Scientology. For those who were non fanatical critics this was annoying as Bernie was pretending to be a non fanatical critic. He created confusion. Am not saying that Alanzo is working for Scientology Inc./the Cult, but his "talking points" are straight out of the Bernie playbook. There were certain main "buttons," such as the words "cult" and the word "brainwashing," that needed to be discredited into oblivion. That, and whoever was seen as the main critic, or critics, of Scientology Inc./the Cult at the time. These same talking points can be found in Scientology Inc.'s Freedom magazine and parroted by Scientology Inc.'s paid "religious experts." Very unnatural and strange. If someone is interested at all in Scientology, for any reason, it's not too outrageous that someone might be mildly curious about its recurring patterns.
