    After all these years, I can't believe this case still has legs!

    I am old ARS denizen, but haven't been back in years.  I had wondered what happened to Keith.  I can not believe that he is still captive to this absurd case.  And yet, if it involves $cientology, nothing should come as a suprise.

    It is really hard to convey to people who haven't investigated it just how awful $cientology is.  They just don't get it.  This is not a religion.  It is a criminal organization that needs to be prosecuted under RICO statutes (and has been, repeatedly, in other countries under their equivalent statutes).

    Anybody who says, "live and let live, it's their religion" etc. (or anybody who dismisses any report of their misdeeds as not being any different than, for example, the Catholic church's coverups) simply does not know what they're about.  That's the plain truth.  Because anybody who actually bothers to read up on these guys and finds out what they're really doing inevitably comes to the conclusion that they're a criminal organization by any definition you can imagine.

    Unreal.

      I spent some time lurking on ARS a few years ago. It is unbelievable to anyone who doesn't know what they are capable of, but it's all very true and extremely disturbing.  I wish more people would educate themselves because if any criminal organization needs to be stopped it is the Scientologists.

      I can't even stand to look at Tom Cruise or John Travolta anymore. I won't watch their movies, even for free on TV.

      how deeply evil CoS is, but have trouble accepting it even after seeing the evidence.

      they're a criminal organization by any definition you can imagine

      And for that reason has been banned at various times in several countries.
