Scientology statement on the anti-Semitic remarks by its ally, Louis Farrakhan?

Discussion in 'Nation of Islam and Related Groups' started by CommunicatorIC, May 25, 2013.

    Has the Church of Scientology issued any statement concerning the anti-Semitic remarks recently made by its ally, Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam?

    The Detroit Free Press reported on a speech Minister Farrakhan made on Friday, May 17, 2013:

    USA Today also reported the story:

    As reflected by numerous articles in the Final Call newspaper, the official newspaper of the Nation of Islam, as well as on Tony Ortega's news site, both Minister Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam are allied with, and indeed receive training from, the Church of Scientology.

    Where is the official statement by the Church of Scientology? Where is the moral leadership?

  2. I had a staff member (who is Jewish himself) tell me that Farrakhan was not talking about real Jews, only those people who are and were pretending to be Jews.

    Image that level of self-deception.

    I'm a real Jew. My name is Lenny Schwartz.
  4. How do you feel about this.

    Years ago, long before the Church aligned itself with Farrakhan, I asked a Scientologist friend of mine how he felt about the anti-Semitism among Scientologist.

    He said it bothered him a lot, but he never spoke out about it.

    Interesting indeed.. Scientology's 'PR position' has always been to support (condone?) any and all religion.

    They used to mostly bag out Christians where I was.

    Yep.. PR in Scientology is distinctly separate from 'reality'.. Scientologists are hypercritical of everything except Hubbard and their cult's own propaganda. (Remarkable when you think about it..)

    I wonder how David Gaiman (deceased) would feel about this as a Jewish man who gave so much of his life to 'the cause' as the worldwide PR for scientology? His family must be truly sickened.

    It always shocked me how prejudiced scientologists could be, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic class snob whatever. It seems that people would arrive with prejudices and nothing they learned ever shifted that. I could never understand that, but I had no prejudices to start with.

    Of course the flounder himself was very prejudiced. Something I could not understand, he apparently travelled and so how could he not see the common humanity? To me if we moved from one body to the next then we had all been male and female and any colour, race, creed etc you can imagine in trillions of years and millions of planets. So to me fear of difference is impossible for a scientologist. Of course I was forgetting that all space opera is based on star trek, everyone speaks American and there are only two black people in the whole of the Galaxy.

    So yes there must be plenty of scientologists who agree with NOI on this.

    At least with Star Trek you had the first scripted interracial kiss and a crew that didn't smoke on the bridge - boom boom. Roddenberry was actually much more of a visionary than Hubbard. If Roddenberry had invented Scientology we might really have a better world.

    Yes that's a good point. Cuter uniforms and less goose-stepping.

    My grandmother on mothers side was a russian Jew. She was the last
    thing to being orthodox. She read tea leaves, and did tarot using
    ordinary playing cards. She new exactly when I was born despite being
    on the opposite side of the atlantic.

    Probably where my genetic tendancy to squirrel came from. :)

    Hope I inherit her longevity. She was going out dancing and getting
    new boyfriends in her 80s.

    Perhaps thats a US attitude from the boondocks. I've never seen
    any racial descrimination in Scn, and people are promoted on stats
    and not skin colour or race. London of course is the most cosmopolitan
    city in the world.

    It seems to me that the "flounder" (love that) very much had the mindset of the guy who never left the farm.

    He was just as racist, sexist and homophobic as any other white guy born in Nebraska in the early 1900s.

    I don't understand...Farrakhan is anti-semitic?


    Are you guys sure?​

    (Notice that is three...count 'em...THREE different suits the "honorable" Mr. Farrakhan is wearing whilst being less than happy about the book in question. He seems to almost have gotten as much traffic off of this as Hubbard did off of Sara Komkovodavich or whatever the hell it was [Sara Northrup].)

  19. You have got to be kidding.

    Certainly racism towards blacks is an American Scientologist thing.

    But Scientologist's anti-Semitism is not just an American thing.

    The anti-Semitism among Scientologists far exceeds what it is in America.

    And I know three German Scientologists, all OTs, who tried to convince me that the SPs on the planet were the Jews.

    I wish the Jews here in USA would wake up about Scientology. Perhaps this will help.
