Scientology's wonderful reputation
23 Sep 2001

I went with my friend yesterday to look at a cabinet she'd spotted in a classified ad. The sellers were a nice older couple who's daughter had just come in for a visit. She was in full Catholic nun regalia. Oldskool, none of your short skirts or token headgear, but a genuine penguin! My darned friend just HAD to start a conversation on religion after the cabinet was loaded up! I finally joined in with a bit of Bible history, and the nun asked me if I studied the bible. I said, "No, but I've learned a lot more about religions since I started opposing Scientology." The look on these peoples' faces at the mention of the cult was priceless, sort of a mix of horror and revulsion. They said it was a cult. They thought it was not really a religion, but a scam. They had read the NY Times article about Scientology at the WTC site, so I gave them some details about that whole situation. I then saved them $360,000 by giving them the $3 Xenu lecture and an explanation of the OT levels, and directed them to www.xenu.net for further information.

That nun was far too sweet to pack a ruler, but I bet DM's knuckles would have been seared had he been within her reach when we left!
