    WOW !!!! Looks like Scientology has mounted a counter attack on The Village Voice !

    No new article for two days by the Village Voice.

    Then this today...

    Subject: While we're taking a quick breather, some Scientology highlights you might have missed...

    We've received some killer new material down here at Scientology Watching Central, but it's going to take some time to prepare for the blog. Also, we could use a couple days off. So this morning, we thought we'd send out a list of some of our big features this year, in case you missed any...

    NOW THIS !!!

    Doesn't seem to have anything to do with Scientology.

    Not directly. However, I suspect that if some serious digging/investigating was done, you would find OSA written all over this op.

    Truthfully, this is about their only effective counter attack against the VV. Why? Any direct counter attack, such as the usual accusing the VV of being religious biggots, hate mongers, anti religious, etc. would probably garner more support for the VV and NOT the Cof$. Keep the Cof$ out of it, covertly motivate various other groups to attack, and not along the lines of "religious biggot" or "hate speech" or "anti religious" but rather 1) attack their money supply and 2) indirectly accuse them of kiddie porn.

    The VV does NOT run kiddie porn. Their advertisers are adult sleaze, true enough ... so-called "massage" services, "escorts," "nude modeling," etc. All horseshitistic fronts for prostitution, true enough. But so what. If some guy needs some relief in the form of an ickyquay ojoblay and is willing to pay for it, and some gal is willing to throw a private halloween party for money, i.e., going bobbing for apples, well, that is their business and nobody elses. But ALL their sleaze is ALL adult. Period. There IS NO SUCH THING as a commercial venture such as the VV running ads for kiddie anything and staying alive. The system would be down on them like flies on road apples if not faster.

    There IS such a thing as kiddie porn, but, it is REALLY underground and VERY VERY PRIVATE. It could not survive otherwise. ANY accusations of kiddie porn vectored at mainstream adult internet sites or publications like the VV ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS have an agenda behind them, and, that agenda always involves the abridgement of free speech.

    Oh the "reporter" covering the petition being delivered is a long time cult shill and reporter for Freedumb mag. (Jim Lynch) This is no accident, the cult is trying to whip up moral outrage over the VV adult section among churches and various other religions.

    I guess they should also go after the NYC phonebook and a about a hundred otherNYC pubs that all run ads for basically the same services and listings.

    Heh, Just watch.

    The "church" is failing miserably,
    because LRH LIED about Clear and OT states. Hi, Indies!

    Prove me wrong. If you can even think about it. Can you?
    Village Voice will blow OSA' and DM' minds in 1, 2, 3....

    Good Morning. :)

    Trust Scientology to do this. Every time. They never learn.

    Don't they know their Samuel Clements (aka Mark Twain)? He's the guy who said you should never get into a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel.

    The Village Voice doesn't even need to buy ink by the barrel; it publishes worldwide, every day, courtesy of the Internet. Admittedly it's a relatively minor publication compared to the New York Times or something; we love it... but we probably make up a noticeable portion of the readership. Here's the stupid thing, though:

    The Scientologists have to attack it. Which makes it news. So the story gets picked up by other papers, and they all run pieces on Scientology, and the demise of the cult accelerates.

    Scientology tech ruins judgment as we know... but this is like tackling a fire when armed with nothing but a bucket of petrol. You can only make things worse.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid. Do you reckon this is being done on orders from the Midget? I think somebody is about to take a lengthy tour of the all-new 'hole'...

    It appears that OSA didn't start the attack on VVM / Backpages but it is clear they have hitched their wagon to it.

    When OSA-bots do show up to refute an Ortega-based article they almost always bring it up as a talking point now.

    You're going to be soooooo sorry you ever said that.

    The OT's are battleplanning right now how they are going to use their OT powers to make it go right.

    When they start using their postulates, you're in deep trouble buddy!

    You Homo Sapiens never learn that OT's run it on your little prison planet!

    A guy named Phil Cenedella has been at it for a while, longer than Tony Ortega has been a major pain for the CoS, I think.

    Also, the same thing happened to Craigslist as well. Again, they seemed to target the most visible public figure in the company to go after.

    I would be wrong, but it seems like the CoS are just trying to appropriate this for their own ends. I'm sure they are putting money into it now, though.

    If the petition hinges on using children for sex, perhaps someone should point out the outrageous conduct of the CofS regarding this very same issue.

    How many children have been raped and abused in the CofS? How many times has this been covered up?

    Living in a glass house has sooooo many disadvantages. Especially when you've built the damn thing on a rocky field and pissed off all your neighbors.

    Yes real kiddie porn and/or sex with minors is a Sea Org thang.

    How's Jan Eastgate these days?
  17. well of course the VV is antireligious and even more so, auntie religious

    Well, somebody or a group of somebodies might be "running the little prison planet", but it surely is NOT Hubbard's roving band of Scientology OTs! :hysterical:

    But then, didn't DM say at some event that the Berlin Wall fell because of the increasing amount of theta being freed across the planet due to expanding numbers of solo auditors on OT VII? But hey, the folks at TM (transcendental meditation) also claimed that it was because of THEM meditating that "caused" the Berlin Wall to fall. I wonder how many others have claimed themselves as the cause of the fall of the Berlin Wall. :confused2:

    The simple truth is that if "OT worked", they wouldn't have any enemies anywhere, and they would be able to "handle from afar any situation". But they can't, and they don't. :whistling:

    The CoS taking on the VV on child abuse ? Wonderful !

    I've long said the covering up of sexual child abuse in scn far exceedes that of the Catholic Church & the C o S can will be destroyed on that point ALONE.

    They go after the VV for the same thing they have covered up on a continuing basis for 60 years ? That is GREAT news !

    Suicide !

    Has the National Enquirer looked into this to see if John Travolta used the backpage of the village voice to contact the masseuse that he wanted to share Kielbasa with?
