Are You Ashamed of Your Beliefs, Mr. Scientologist?

Shhhh …. it’s a secret. I didn’t quite catch what exactly Tommy Davis was offended by in this video, so offended it was worth walking out on an interview, being interviewed by someone who was not being offensive at all with his questions. If the answer to the question is no, that’s not correct, just say so. If yes, well, just say so. What’s the deal?

So are you offended by distortions of your beliefs, Mr. Davis? Then why not tell the interviewer that those are distortions? Or … are you offended they would ask about things that are supposed to be secret, but were leaked and are now public, and you are actually ashamed of those beliefs and won’t discuss them with ‘outsiders’? Why are you so defensive? Why is your organization so litigious? Mr. Davis, an official spokesman for Scientology, is quite the apologist for his faith, or rather, (let’s call it what it is) cult.

The Church of Oprah

(FYI, if you’re coming from a politically liberal-leaning point of view, please ignore the caption at the beginning and end of this video … that’s totally irrelevant to the main issue at hand: Oprah’s deceit. In addition, I realize there is a book mentioned apparently directly linking Obama to the occult and New Age movement at the end of the video. I have done no investigation of these claims or the book and would liken such a title to far-right fear mongering of some kind … though certainly the actual proposal of establishing a Department of Peace does sound eerily familiar to the Ministry of Love in Orwell’s classic 1984, a place in the story in which the main character, Winston, is tortured into submission to “love” for Big Brother, but I seriously digress from the real topic at hand 🙂 )

This is the absolute essence of false religion, the antithesis of Christianity, the antithesis of the Gospel. In this thinking, You are the starting point for all that is in your world and the world that is out there, as it were. How utterly vain. This kind of thinking, left unchecked, will eat our culture from the inside out, because the ultimate end, the ultimate goal of the type of person this creates is a sociopath. A society of sociopaths? Frightening prospect, just on a worldly level, let alone the abandonment and suppression of the Gospel.
