: i guess i'm going to be the only one who has the nerve to speak my mind freely, at the expense of possibly insulting a celebrity, & refuse to apologize for it.
NO, sadly enough you're not the ONLY ONE. There are always ONLY ONES around here. The only ONES cool enough to tell someone EXACTLY what they think and PROVE that they don't have an OUNCE of FANBOY about them. Except that when they say EXACTLY what they're thinking they're MAKING MOST OF IT UP to be offensive, so that they can show the CELEBRITY exactly how NON CELEBRITY CARING COOL GUYS ask questions and refuse to apologize for it.
You are NOT James Dean. So you're rebellion will require a cause, I'm afraid. Run back to your parents and have them sign this permission slip before you start a long line of mindless monkey tirades on these hallowed halls.
:but scientology, if what i've read about it can be believed,
There's the wrong key to your argument. You preface your ignorance with a disclaimer that says if I offend you with libelous lies it isn't my fault because i'm only misquoting something i read once on a conspiracy web theorists reliable & newsworthy page, and I'm sorry my personal attack on you and your wife stung, but hey, I'm one of those cool guys who says EXACTLY what he thinks to a CELEBRITY & REFUSES TO APOLOGIZE.
is a very dangerous, manipulative organization. people have died while undergoing this org's rituals. mental abuse is commonplace. you are required to sign billion year contracts (to insure that you & any future "life" you may have belongs to the church indefinitely). it's whacky. it's scary. why *shouldn't* anyone ask: "what the fuck is going on in that place??"
3 Answers to that one question, "Why shouldn't anyone ask: what the fuck is going on in that place??"
ANSWER 1: One should realize that when reading about religious groups and associations one should not qualify the WEEKLY WORLD NEWS as a reliable source, nor should any website that has humor disclaimers.
ANSWER 2: If you are not of this religion, nor know or have spoken to anyone within this church or practicing this religion, perhaps it is none of you business. Personally I think Agnostics are the pathetic fence sitters of the religious world. Be an Athiest if you don't believe, or join or start your own religion, but don't fly yourself under the flag of "I'll believe in God when he proves something to ME." because quite frankly that's one of the most egotistical statements you can make, even moreso than thinking anyone owes you ,an avowed non-believer, an explanation about the choices he made in his life. I gotta feeling when this whole thing comes down, YOU and all your PEOPLE WHO ARE COOL ENOUGH TO SAY WHAT THEY'RE EXACTLY THINKING AND REFUSING TO APOLOGIZE TO IT FRIENDS are gonna be squatting outside the gates, waiting for a miracle and it ain't gonna happen.
*keep in mind there's nothing wrong with saying exactly what you're thinking and refusing to apologize for it. AS LONG AS YOU BEHAVE THAT WAY WITH EVERYONE. From Jason Lee to VioLenT BoB to the Traffic Cop and the little crippled Boy in the wheelchair. If you treat anyone of those people differently in any situation, I'm afraid that you give a little bit more of a fuck than you avow your self to 'just don't.'
ANSWER THREE: Try reading a fucking book. I'm sure there are enough by old L-ron. And if there aren't, then just trying searching: scientology in the non-fiction section of your local library. Educate yourself, before you ask stupid and inappropriate questions.
ANSWER THREE-A: This WEBBOARD is not the place for this. Find a SCIENTOLOGY webboard to get your questions answered. Scientology plays no and i'm sure wants no part in a barrage of Dick and Fart Jokes.
ANSWER THREE-B: If you cannot fulfill answer three or three-a, you may want to consider L E A R N I N G T O R E A D B E F O R E H A V I N G Y O U R S I S T E R T Y P E F O R Y O U .
i think it's a perfectly acceptable question that warrants an honest answer.
