With so much to unpack in this single tweet one struggles to know where to begin.
Meskimen’s actual video rant will be addressed in its own post later. For now the fact that Jim seems to be under the impression that real religions control members’ right to free speech is worth commenting upon.
So too his obvious impression that
tattling Knowledge Reports are not purely a Scientology thing but something accepted in the real world. (This in spite of the fact that tattling is generally dissuaded as early as kindergarten.)
There’s also his shocking, disingenuous and patently false assertions “we as Scientologists would never do this to you” and “we respect people of all faiths”.
Positively exhausting, but one does what one must.
Dear Jim Meskimen,
First, as off the rails and heretical as our current pope is, he’s not going to beat any Catholics or consign one of us to a Hole for speaking according to our conscience. Nor will any of our Bishops.
As foreign a concept as it may be, we’re allowed to exercise independent thought.
What exactly do you expect Archbishop Gomez to do in this situation, smack his little hands and give him a demerit?
Unlike your cowardly Captain, our leaders are supposed to be concerned with the state of our souls and teaching the faith according to our Catechism. It is not Gomez’s job to call Rick Caruso into his office and punish him for political campaign strategies.
L. Ron Hubbard created Knowledge Reports as a way to create paranoia and suspicion between Scientology members. It is an incredibly effective way to assure that no strong relationships are created that might end with people comparing notes then fomenting defiance against the Collective.
Policing one another and taking someone else’s inventory is the Scientology way.
We know that when we die we are not going to be asked what our spouse or friend did. We’re going to have to answer for our own actions.
We don’t tattle on each other.
Running to the Archbishop to “tell” on Caruso made you look exactly like a four year old.
As for whining “we’d never do this to you”.
Yeah, you would.
“This”, according to you, is Rick Caruso attacking Scientology.
Jimmy, all Scientology does is attack people.
It’s what Stand League and Hate Monitor is all about.
Need a refresher?
How about this:
“Fair Game. May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.”
You know, like this for example:
Jimmy, if this is a case of your Reactive Mind compelling you into dramatizations with idiotic faithfulness perhaps you might spend a bit more time on course and less time tattling and whining.
You look like a petulant second grade bully.
