    Hubbard is dead and no longer is in need of protection.

    As far as his reputation goes, there is absolutely no way you can protect Hubbard's reputation from the consequences of his abuses, lies, fraud and crimes. But, have fun.

    There is only ONE King ... and that would be the King of Kings.
    You should know better ... unless you be a Christian écureuil :questions:

    Anyway no worries about any hindquarters left to rip any chunk off ... God bless his troubled soul.

    But ... it's no less utterly blasphemous, IMHO.

    The King of Kings could not be King of Kings if there were no Kings for him to be King of...


    Reminds me of a cartoon I once saw. Two kings in their royal ermine trimmed robes are walking along and one says to the other "Once you get past the Divine Right of Kings I'm not much on theology.

    L. Ron Hubbard is king of Dianetics...

    Postulate processing - LRH extract from DAB vol. 2, No. 6, 1951
    "The success of any organism in any environment is déterminable by the measure of the degree the organism can change to control a new environment. When a higher organism accepts the obvious fact that it's mind is practically the sole means for environmental control it must, to seem itself successful, possess an ability to change its mind, for as environment changes, thoughts must change. Unless that organism is constantly moving, erasing old conclusions and postulations fitting new ones, it becomes static and moves towards succumb."

    As per "soorz" own words, we exes are then $cn's most valuable and successful product ...
