Are there any famous Minnesotan Scientologists?


It appears MNRAID is planning a protest tomorrow. Not sure how I feel about it. You?

    Not sure how I feel about it, either. I mean, on the one hand, it’s brainwashing, and brainwashing is bad. On the other hand, this is America: we all have the freedom to be total idiots if we like. And y’know, there’s probably less of a difference between Scientology and, say, Harry Potter than we realize.

    Every one has a right to their public opinion. But what a waste of time. We have freedom of religion in this country for a reason. Pick a worthy cause if you’re going to stand for something and make a difference in the world rather than persecute someone for their religious beliefs.

    There seems to be an odd irony to meeting at Starbucks for such a protest. Either way, there’s a sale at Wal Mart for picket sign equipment. :)

    These protests are not against the religious beliefs of Scientology. The Freedom of Religion is guaranteed in our country. It is the criminal behavior by Church of Scientology (CoS) that we object to. If anyone is obstructing Freedom, the CoS limits the Free Speech of others by censoring the media with threats of litigation.

    With the censoring of the now-famous Tom Cruise video, the past transgressions of the CoS have come under scrutiny. Their history of extortion, cover-ups, lies, and murder cannot be permitted to continue. I recommend the article by Time Magazine entitled "The Thriving Cult of Greed and Power" ( ) to learn more.

    And so, thousands have begun protesting worldwide, in February. Even now the protests go on – not against the religious beliefs of the individuals, but the criminal and immoral actions by the organization that pretends to help them.
