Today Tonight (Australia) exposes Scientology‘s most closely guarded secret; that they believe an Alien Overlord (named Xenu) brought billions of aliens to Earth 77 Million years ago and murdered them by blowing them up with hydrogen bombs after throwing them into volcanoes. They also believe that hundreds of the ghosts from these dead aliens (known as thetans) parasitize all humans and cause all of our psychiatric illnesses and many of our physical ones as well (such as cancer).
This Today Tonight broadcast has confirmed that the South Park episode Trapped in the Closet hit the nail on the head, and exposes Scientologists as the liars they are. The Xenu story is taught in a fairly advanced Scientology course known as OT-III, and new members won’t be made aware of this L. Ron Hubbard bullshit until they’ve paid to be declared clear of thetans and have passed OT-I and OT-II courses (at a cost of approximately $100,000).
From daily The Independent in Britain:
Ex-Scientologist Carmen Llwyelyn blasts ‘cult’ and her treatment after divorce with Jason Lee
Actress has penned a revealing essay criticising the controversial religion
Tuesday 30 June 2015
The Never Been Kissed actress was introduced to the church after moving to California and meeting the My Name is Earl star Jason Lee, who was already a member, aged 19. The couple married a year later in 1995 and divorced in 2001.
Scientology counts John Travolta, Will Smith, Juliette Lewis and Tom Cruise among its many famous followers. It is founded on the work of sci-fi writer L Ron Hubbard, who wrote of an alien dictator who brought his people to earth 75 million years ago.
Llywelyn discussed her experiences within the church in a lengthy essay for Gawker, writing: “I’ve realised that the religion is built on a foundation of violence. […] I did what so many other people who join Scientology do: I lost all sense of individual identity in the name of the cult.”
Her article has been dismissed by the Church as “yet another shameless and transparent attempt” to draw media attention.
The 41-year-old claimed to have spent up to $50,000 (£32,000) on books, courses and “auditing” during her time in the church and recalled a “class system” that gave celebrity followers special status.
“I was shown L. Ron Hubbard’s office, set up perfectly for when he comes back in another lifetime. The famous members of the religion were mentioned over and over again. In the Rose Garden, cans of Coke were on sale for $2 each alongside overpriced snacks. It was all very ostentatious. Most of the focus was on ways things appeared. It was confusing to me that a church was called the Celebrity Centre.”
Llywelyn claimed she was ostracised by her friends within the church after being labelled a “Suppressive Person” for reading an anti-Scientology book, eventually receiving a “disconnection letter” from her husband.
“Scientologists believe that such a person, like an ex-Scientologist who speaks out about their former beliefs and/or who doesn’t disconnect from one who has, will make everyone around them sick,” Llewellyn wrote. “I lost Gay [her agent], Jason, and every friend and source of love I knew besides my family in Georgia, 3,000 miles away.
“No one imagines themselves as so fragile to ever let something as sinister as a cult take control of their minds. I didn’t think anyone would ever tell me how to think and when to think it. We all believe we’re above such things and only stupid people could fall for that.
“But there are no choices in Scientology. There never were. It is all a ruse. In truth, after I left Scientology, I had to learn how to think for myself again, to speak for myself again. It’s very different from the language Scientology promotes in its advertisements: ‘think for yourself’.”
