    There are hilarious comments by Scientologists on their petition website. I will just print the first one that I saw. . .

    Dear Elle,

    Can we assume by your ever-so-insightful accusations that you are an OT (Operating Tell)?

    You mean like Hubbard
    slandering Christianity ("There was no man on the cross") and Islam ( "Mohammed was a pedophile") and making the false claims that those religions are "wholetrack implants by psychiatrists"?

    You mean for profit, like charging individuals appx. $500,000 each to read the confidential advanced dead-agent pack?

    This petition for the IRS to investigate Scientology now has 2,991 signatures! :happydance:

    Just an added note, there certainly are a lot of fake signatures on the OTHER petition (to stop Leah Remini's show).

    Some sigs are by our own people or supporters, just so they could write comments on the scn's petition site. :hysterical: Make sure to upvote those!

    Then there is that percentage of sigs from India (of course) and some well-known fake names and addresses, like this one:

    GRISELDA CONTRERAS (who now lists herself as Griselda C. Contreras in Chattanooga, TN instead of Modesta, CA, but aliases remain the same. ALL of these names and addresses are the same person and end up with Sea Org addresses:, TN&rid=0x0

    Notice the address for the CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY at 1404 N. Catalina? :lol: :hysterical: Obvious, much? :footbullet:

    Oh look! There is also a Griselda A. Contreras who used to live in HEMET, CA! What an outstanding coincidence, since there are so few people who live there who aren't Sea Org: Contreras&citystatezip=Modesto, CA&rid=0x4
    Other aliases:

    Oh look! She is also Griselda (Contreras) Stein and works as the Executive Director for APPLIED SCHOLASTICS in Nashville! That's a two hour drive in each direction from Chattanooga. How in the world does she manage every day?

    What was that about Applied Scholastics as a separate organization from the Church of Scientology?

    Judging from all the fake names (this one woman alone probably has some 100 different ID's, all ending up with Scientology Sea Org addresses or similar), there doesn't seem to be a genuine intention to present an actual petition, just more cult inspired media to divert attention from the child abuse and other crimes documented and present more hokey crap about so-called ''religious intolerance" if any dare speak out and expose the truth.

    Pathetic abusive cult.

    Yes, I recognise and was surprised to see Leslie Farrow's name on the list above. I was on London Org staff with her and she is roughly the same age as I am. I left in 1974 but she has hung on in scientology for another forty-odd years. And her reward for all her loyalty and persistence? The RPF. What a wonderful religion it is!

    There was another comment a couple days ago from someone who recognized several RPFers names. "Here, sign this and then get back to work."

    In the meantime we're at 3,054.

    Oh look! Rev. Brian Fesler of Nashville, TN, also signed the petition against Leah Remini's show and also has loads and loads of online aliases:

    Now why in the world would the minister of any HONEST, REPUTABLE, SPIRITUAL religion need so many aliases and use two different middle names with dozens of different addresses and six different versions of his name, but with the same relatives and same church of scientology affiliations? :hmm:

    Brian Fesler
    AKAsBrian Scott Fesler
    Brian S Fesler
    Brian S Eslers

    Brian R Fesler
    Brian Ray Fesler

    He's from Alpena, MI, Lincoln MI, Rockwood Park, MI, Detroit, MI, Southgate, MI, Woodhaven, MI, Melvindale, MI, Wyandotte, MI, as well as St. Paul, MN, St Paul Park, MN, Minneapolis, MN, Iowa City, IA, Williamsburg, KY, Sioux Falls, SD and Nashville, TN. He's 46 years old and he's 50 years old, but what do age or names mean to a Scientologist, anyway.

    Nice minister. Nice ID cloaking. Nice church. Not! :no:

    This Scientologist signs her name on the petition against Leah's show as "calamity cate crismani Sherman Oaks, CA" and has a Facebook ID with that name.

    She is also known as:

    Cate Sage (Academy Level 0 & 1 completions Celebrity Center, July 1993!topic/alt.religion.scientology/G_1rpdI09vk)

    Kate Sage
    Katie Sage
    Kathi Sage
    Kat Sage
    Kathryn Sage
    Kathleen Sage
    Kate Crismani
    Cate Crismani
    Catherine Sage

    Katherine M Sage
    Katherine J Sage
    Katherine Crismani Sage
    Kathryn Sage
    Catherine H. Sage
    Cate C. Sage
    Cate H. Sage
    Cate J. Sage
    Cate Sage Crismani
    Sage Sage

    ALL of these are the same person with the same relatives.

    Her addresses include Sherman Oaks, CA, Flushing, NY, Brooklyn, NY and Los Angeles, CA. She is 55, 59, 62 and (usually) 60 years old.

    Why would any legitimate members of an honest, bonafide church need 22 different names? Could it be this person has as much to hide as the Church of Scientology?

    ANSWER: Because it is the greatest good for the greatest number of names.

    :laugh: :roflmao: Good one!


    I was personally wondering if all her names were on public assistance and the organization required to manage getting the checks from so many different addresses in so many states. :hmm: A true collection and re-distribution specialist.

    Maybe these are the name permutations used by the Registrar to apply for their credit cards all at the same time.

    It would be embarrasing if it didn't get more votes than the other one :biggrin:

    Am I right in saying the "tax exempt" petition can only be signed by US citizens whereas the other one is open to anyone wherever in the world they live?

    If so, it wouldn't be a fair comparison.

    ANYONE can sign this petition--not just US citizens, so please sign it wherever you are from!

    Right now we are at 4709!

    Last night I put in some $$ to boost the petition on Facebook, and I swear it made a big jump this morning, so if you have some cash taking up space, please consider boosting the petition.

    The difference between the anti Leah Remini petition and this one is that this one could be signed by literally millions of people if they knew about it. All the people who watch Leah's show (millions) would probably sign it in a heartbeat. So, it's not just for us hardcore critics who have been hanging around for years. Their petition, on the other hand, will ONLY be signed by the few hardcore nutjobs still in the church who to this day haven't figured out how to google Scientology.
