    Vicky - do you really think that anyone outside of The Bubble believes you at all?:duh:

    It's obviously the best that they can come up with, even after reading the book AND getting multiple reports back from Friday night's event in Redfern.:screwy:

    Obviously there is nothing in the book itself that the cult can disagree with.:roflmao:

    We need a :cultclown: smilie for times like this:biggrin:

    :footbullet: just doesn't cover the depth of stupidity that "PR" statements like these convey.:yes:

    Perfect! LOL.

    I looked (with real curiosity) at what her "statement" could possibly say to reverse the entheta tsunami engulfing Scientology.

    I write to you concerning the Morning Show interview which aired this morning with paid anti-Scientologist, Tony Ortega.

    The Church was not contacted regarding the claims or given any opportunity whatsoever to respond to the issues raised before or after the program aired today.

    I would appreciate if you would instruct your staff who may be airing a story on Scientology in the future, to make a meaningful effort to contact the Church and obtain our information and response, so they can responsibly assess the claim’s accuracy and newsworthiness. This would also provide some opportunity for balance and to respond to false or tabloid claims.

    Accordingly, I ask that our Church statement be posted on your website to remedy the lack of balance in this morning's segment and to provide your viewers with our response.

    Please get back to me regarding this matter as soon as possible.

    Yours sincerely,

    Vicki Dunstan | Public Affairs
    Church of Scientology Australia

    She had me at "paid anti-Scientologist". Had me laughing.

    So what? People get paid for their book. Tony gets paid
    [SUP]*[/SUP] to sell copies of "The Unbreakable Miss Lovely" and thereafter people reviled & ridiculed Scientology.

    By her reasoning, L. Ron Hubbard is also a "paid anti-Scientologist" because--people likewise paid for his book and thereafter reviled & ridiculed Scientology.

    [SUP]* [/SUP]Yeah, I know, Dunstan is attempting to "black pr" Tony as a paid stooge of pharmaceutical companies, communists, world bankers, psychs--or whoever is the SP du jour. Funny, Scientologists always claim that anyone who doesn't agree with them (or exposes their crimes) is being "paid" to do so. They don't offer evidence to refute the facts being reported. They don't offer evidence that the party is being "paid"--or by whom. Just generalities. Hmmm...that doesn't look good for OTs to have one of the SP traits from Ron's policy on the Anti-Social Personality. I would like to write more on this subject but the mail just arrived here and I got my monthly check from a drug company for posting on ESMB and need to go cash it and use the money to sabotage Ron's Bridge to Total Freedom.

    Great reporting from Iain

    There was a Scientologist in the audience who asked a question (as reported by Iain)

    That is actually quite a remarkable question coming from a Scientologist!

    Or should I say, a soon-to-be-declared Scientologist.

    Because they were being "reasonable". By actually engaging in a conversation.

    Yeah, two way com is so squirrel and so evil and so suppressive. Unless there is paid invoice.

    Wow that was fun! Catching up with Steve & Tony was sooo great. Those guys know their shit. We had a few drinks by the river after the show & hours flew by.

    Not long back from the Melbourne event, wonderful. Pretty full house and terrific discussion at the end as has been blogged.

    Steve Cannane is such an excellent interviewer and Tony is a fabulous speaker - and to see these two professionals discussing scientology like this was a dream come true for me. I remember those heady days back in 2008 when Anonymous appeared and the gratitude I felt then, as I do now, for people willing to stand up and make the abuses known.

    I met some old friends and I am sure there were a lot of exes there I didn't know. You know ... people who get the jokes and laugh in the right places. I met some Bunkerites as well, which was terrific. I'm sure the scientologist who asked the question was simply running a program he has done many times before. Sort of like pointing out, in a roundabout way, that only one side of the story is being heard. Yawn.

    Aussies - if you can go to the Adelaide and Perth events, it really is something not to miss.

    Emma said I can post this ... Tony with her by the Yarra having drinks. I love this photo, the sky was changing in typical Melbourne style and shortly after there was a beautiful pinkish sunset sky with a double rainbow. Yeah I know I'm full of adjectives, that's how I'm feeling. :biggrin:

    The talk in Melbourne was the 4th largest audience apparently, and it was a packed house of seriously interested and interesting people. Best of all I got to meet some amazing and inspirational heroes - Emma, Tony, Steve, Rohan and many more.

    Sounds like the events have been fantastic so far!! Sorry to have missed the fun in Sydney (would have loved to catch up with you all... its been too long) but I realised that the Adelaide event is only 10 minutes outside the CBD so with a little luck I think I can actually make that one!

    I would feel better to have some company, so if anyone from Adelaide who is going could PM me it would be much appreciated.

    Re pic above ... I bet she said you can post it! Look at her, she looks about 25 (and I know for a fact ... she ain't) and she glows (it's a great photo)!

    So glad you both had such a great day and met some wonderful people.
