More Hypocritical Lip Service to Tolerance

May 11, 2021 Scientologist Roger Harrison published an open letter to Daily Beast writer Marlo Stern.

Although intended to be a patronizing attack, instead it not only defines the very essence of Stand League but Scientology as L. Ron Hubbard’s alter ego.

Harrison begins with classic Hubbard Study Tech posting the definition of “bigot”.

“Bigot – noun: A person who is obstinately or unreasonably attached to a belief, opinion, or faction, especially one who is prejudiced against or antagonistic toward a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular group.”

He follows this with two bullet points.

First; “The bigot CANNOT assimilate information that is outside of his slanted world view.”

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard never met a non-white person he liked. His prejudice and antagonism towards other cultures is well documented; “Now we say there’s, well, another place in the world—there’s India. Wonderful place — except for its people.” –L. Ron Hubbard, “The Control of Hysteria” (lecture), 15 April 1957.

“They smell of all the baths they didn’t take. The trouble with China is, there are too many chinks here.” –L. Ron Hubbard, personal journal, 1928

“In North Africa they had the Arab with the gun and whip, but he could force people to do things … and he accomplished a tremendous amount of extermination, but he certainly didn’t advance that civilization very much.” –L. Ron Hubbard, PAB No. 119, 1 September 1957, as published in Level 0 PABS (c.1968, The American St. Hill Organization)

Hubbard’s bigotry towards Christianity, especially Catholicism, is equally clear; “For those of you whose Christian toes I may have stepped on, let me take the opportunity to disabuse you of some lovely myths. For instance, the historic Jesus was not nearly the sainted figure (he) has been made out to be. In addition to being a lover of young boys and men, he was given to uncontrollable bursts of temper and hatred…. You have only to look at the history his teachings inspired to see where it all inevitably leads. It is historic fact and yet man still clings to the ideal, so deep and insidious is the biologic implanting….”

“No doubt you are familiar with the Revelations section of the Bible where various events are predicted. Also mentioned is a brief period of time in which the arch-enemy of Christ, referred to as the anti-Christ, will reign and his opinions will have sway … this anti-Christ represents the forces of Lucifer (literally, the ‘light-bearer’ or ‘light-bringer’), Lucifer being a mythical representation of the forces of enlightenment…. My mission could be said to fulfill the Biblical promise represented by this brief anti-Christ period.” — L. Ron Hubbard, Student Briefing, OT VIII Series I

Mike Rinder’s Blog has an excellent article filled with multiple ugly, bigoted, intolerant opinions by Hubbard against Jews, Arabs and Black people as well.

These discriminatory beliefs are part of Scientology’s “Sacred Scripture”. Doctrine which “holds that spiritual salvation can be attained if, and only if, the path to salvation outlined in the scripture’s religious technology is followed without deviation.”

Scientology’s bigotry and intolerance casts its dark shadow over the world.

It is the only “religion” with written policies that dictate the destruction by any means of anyone who publicly questions it.

“The bigot CANNOT assimilate information that is outside of his slanted world view.”

Ironically Harrison models this exquisitely when he writes first; “You say you’ve ‘done a lot of reporting’ on Scientology. Please don’t nauseate me. I don’t know you, but I’m quite certain that your ‘reporting’ was ONLY with sources that confirmed your bias.”

Coming from a member of a cult that refuses to believe any source outside of its own sphere of influence, this is rich.

Indeed, Scientologists are so stubbornly self-deluded that when presented with facts from their own “scripture” they claim the uncomfortable, threatening information was manufactured by Wogs.

Displaying complete inability to assimilate information outside his own slanted world view, Harrison then goes on to claim that; “There are literally hundreds of thousands of Scientologists in the Los Angeles area alone, but you didn’t do any ‘reporting’ with them, because their responses would cause you bigoted cognitive dissonance.”

There are not hundreds of thousands of Scientologists in the whole of California, let alone in Los Angeles. As for “bigoted cognitive dissonance”… the Scientologist doth protest too much.

Roger Harrison’s second point, that “The bigot is surprised when others don’t share his bigotry. A bigot wants to validate his own world view and when his bigotry isn’t validated, he’s surprised, and makes attempts to ‘educate’ others” pretty much sums up Stand League in a nutshell.

Every time Edward Parkin takes to Social Media with links to twisted articles portraying Leah Remini as the “Goddess of Hate” this definition is confirmed.

Each ugly social media account that spreads misinformation designed to dehumanize Remini, Rinder or any other person who speaks against Scientology is an attack based in bigotry and hate.

Scientology’s final goal is to Clear the Planet and recreate society in its own image.

In this new world order there will only be Scientology.

Achieving this would be the ultimate display of bigotry, abuse and control.

Condescendingly Harrison writes, but does not believe, “…one doesn’t have to be part of a group, religion, race or sexual orientation to have the decency to grant others the right to be who they want and practice what they choose.”

Scientology should try it sometime.

  1. This Scientology is alike many before. A man who wants to save the world for his own benefit.
    Do not doubt your own heart and knowingness. You do not need saving! You do not need a Savior.

  2. I have a personal Roger Harrison story.
    I lived in the L.A. metro area from ’99 to ’02. One of my early gigs was a brunch(music) gig at Celebrity Center with Roger. He played keyboards-badly. And he answered his cellphone in the middle of a song. He was a typical amateur, “OT” scientologist musician who thought he was an ‘artist’. He was a fake, self-centered idiot back then. Mitch Talevi was another amateur OT musician I met back then who was similarly smug and clueless.
    Anyway, I am not surprised by the lame sophistry or the arrogance in his ” essay”- which he may well have written as part of an “ethics handling”…The poor guy is following the malignant narcissist’s(Fabian Fabulist Flubbard) policy of lying, deflecting, and attacking a critic, without ever presenting a logical, evidence-based rebuttal. He has wasted a considerable chunk of his adult life in the cult. Oh well…

      1. Pure guessing on my part, but…maybe he was doing a “Liability Formula”, which includes, if I remember correctly, “striking an effective blow against the enemy”…So, a very public(from the scientological p.o.v.) OT ad hominem fest directed at a known critic of the Clampire posted on their tired website would meet that requirement…I can’t be bothered to review that Orwellian ethics crap to check if my memory is correct, but the overall point/speculation is that he may have been doing SOME kind of “ethics condition” handling…

      2. This makes me wonder how many of the pieces appearing on Stand League come from this. It certainly changes the whole intent for me. Rather than lashing out at Suppressives from a point of defensive outrage we may have a lashing out from a point of self preservation. Interesting.

      3. Maybe it’s both, inasmuch as dedicated, long-term scientologists have thoroughly internalized the thought-stopping policies and the rest of the cult mental and emotional inhibitions, traps, and “truths”(assumptions, biases, etc.). So, they are outraged by these horrible, evil-purpose-carrying critics spouting their “entheta” and thereby threatening the salvation of the universe AND they are horrified by and ashamed of their own lapses in TR’s, their violations of KSW,y and/or their own descents into “lower ethics conditions”…
        I remember what scientological cognitive dissonance felt like, but I never reached that degree of zealotry and so assiduously avoided the whole “confront and shatter” twerking routine that these fools regularly engage in.
        Viewed from the outside, it’s utterly banal, sad, and glaringly ridiculous…
