Aha! We just found out WHY John Travolta visited Hawaii dressed in black. Apparently the church of Scientology had a huge fundraising concert planned for May 24 at the Honolulu Design Center. Lisa Marie Presley was set to perform, among others. It was a $2500 a ticket fundraiser for Narcanon drug rehab. (Scientology was not mentioned in ads) and the church hoped at least a thousand Hawaiians would attend. But the local newspaper spelled out what many Hawaiians didn’t realize – that Scientology backed Narcanon. Hawaiians stayed away in droves. The event was a total bust and when few tickets sold, they flew in Scientologists from the mainland and moved the concert to a restaurant. Lisa Marie avoided the whole debacle and flew to another island.

    $cientology is a cult. It is only a “church” for the purposes of being tax exempt. The cult uses a multitude of fake groups to hide that they are fronts for $cientology with the goal of gaining new recruits, or as the cult calls it, “fresh meat”.
    here is a list of some of the groups that hide behind various titles but are all a part of and abide by $cientology rules:
    [edit] Cult-associated international organizations
    This includes corporations, unincorporated organizations and operational units.
    * Applied Scholastics
    * Author Services Inc.
    * Better Family Relations Association
    * Bridge Publications
    * Church of Spiritual Technology
    * Citizens Commission on Human Rights
    * Citizens for Social Reform
    * Commodore’s Messenger Organization
    * Concerned Businessmen’s Association of America
    * Criminon
    * Cult Awareness Network
    * Freewinds
    * Galaxy Press
    * Hubbard Association of Scientologists International
    * International Association of Scientologists
    * Narconon
    * Office of Special Affairs
    * Rehabilitation Project Force
    * Religious Technology Center
    * Safe Environment Fund
    * Sea Org
    * Sterling Management Systems
    * The Way to Happiness Foundation International
    * Volunteer Ministers
    * World Institute of Scientology Enterprises
    * Youth for Human Rights International

    The cult of $cientology ruins lives, destroys families, uses its members to make money no matter what and leaves their victims peniless and brainwashed and scarred to the point of nervous breakdown. for every picture you may see of their handful of celebrity members trying to make the cult look glamorous and appealing, are about one hundred people who live in squalor and poverty, working up to 18 hours a day, with wages that would befit slaves.
    it is good that the truth about the cult is getting out, and that Hawaii protected its people by informing them about $cientology. it was also good that mayor bloomberg banned their moneysucking fundraiser that was for their own benefit= $

    How many tickets did
    Tom Cruise buy? Did he show up for the “event”?

    Just a little inaccuracy in the article: NarCONon is the $cientology “drug rehab” program. NarCANon is the twelve-step program based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous and has no connection to $cientology.
    $cientology obviously uses the NarCONon name to confuse the public. Ironically, most people who know about NarCONon consider the program to be a CON.

    scientologists are crazy, their founder was a science fiction writer and not a very succesful one at that. he is famous for this quote: Million Dollar Idea
    “Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous, If a man really wanted to make a million dollars, the best way to do it would be to start his own religion.”
    this famous quote blatantly states their desire to just extract money from idiots. someone can be bright but as soon as they say they are a scientologist it ruins them in my eyes the founder of earthlink/helio sky dayton is a scientologist. CRAZY

    Thanks to your local newspaper, residents in Hawaii were informed what they were about to buy into!
    Scientology is a dangerous, money making business. Run as fast as you can when they come close.

    any “religion” that has to hide behind front companies is a fraud.

    The Church of Scientology is a cult. The Catholic Church is a cult. The Protestant church is a cult. The Anglican church is a cult. The Moonies are a cult. The Hindu religion is a cult. The Muslim religion is a cult. The Wiccan church is a cult. There are too many cults to list here but, I the whole point is that the members of one cult calling the members of another cult members of a cult is, at best, funny and at worst, just sad. They are all just tax dodges for the shifty and refuges from reality for the credulous.
    Don’t like the above ideas? You are either shifty, or credulous.

    Alex, you’re an idiot if you don’t know what a cult is. When a Catholic becomes disillusioned and leaves the church, does the priest have him stalked? Do former Protestants have to be careful when ‘denouncing’ their former church as a fraud? Are they verbally abused & blackmailed by their former ‘ministers’? When you become a Muslim, are you supposed to cut off contact with your non-believing relatives?
    Once in Scientology, you are expected to STAY in Scientology – OR ELSE. They make you ‘confess’ all your ‘sins'(aka ‘auditing’) right from the beginning – AND IT’S ALL WRITTEN DOWN IN YOUR OWN HANDWRITING, OF COURSE. I don’t know of any priest who hears all your confessions and then when you want to leave and go become a Moonie, harasses you and labels you as an ‘enemy’ – meanwhile has everything you ever confessed to written down somewhere. VERY strange.
    Also everyone DO NOT USE EARTHLINK! There is no reason to trust these people and we have every reason NOT to.

    I don’t understand why, if scientology is a real religion, do they not have proper missionaries. I’d be really suspicious if my main “preacher” was Tom Cruise. That is very sad.

    I left a job because of Narconon. I found out it was through Scientology and I got out! We used to be a faithbased ministry… how sad. They left God out of the whole thing and its A MESS

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
