I love you, Tony Ortega

Hi everyone! Forgive my long absence; as the Scientologists would say, I had to handle some first-dynamic FP cycles. (The rest of us would say I was busy making money.)

And what happens while I’m away? Tony Ortega, who I had accused of being a shill for Marty Rathbun, totally redeems himself (in my eyes, at least), by naming L. Ron Hubbard as the #1 person crippling Scientology. Tony’s article reflect my viewpoint perfectly: It is the policies of L. Ron Hubbard, not merely the implementation of them by David Miscavige, that is the real evil behind Scientology.

Naturally, this article didn’t sit well with Marty Rathbun, and he wrote a reply. I’ll comment more on it in the coming days, but Marty’s arguments are exactly what we hear from organized Scientology: The “unauthorized” biographies are dirt-digging, it doesn’t really matter if Hubbard was a con artist because his “tech” works, and the quotes from policy are all pulled out of context. Same old bullshit Scientology has always spun, with a twist: Independents aren’t going to behave as badly as organized Church members. (Since it was Hubbard hisself who dictated the bad behavior, that remains to be seen. We already know that Marty isn’t above breaking the law when it comes to the Squirrel Busters, although his actions were certainly understandable, if not legally justifiable.)

Oh, glee, glee, glee. More comments coming in the next few days. Be well, my wog brothers and sisters.

ML,
Caliwog
