Excellent protest was EXCELLENT. A HUGE thanks to the cult for moving to Florence..a bit further to drive, but my goodness..we got as much hornlove and thumbs up in ONE protest than we did the four years? in Cincy. We will be better prepared next month, (you can infer as you wish). Just standing on the corner with a cult sign and a sign about Shelly and or Lisa! SO many people..we had people who drove by, saw us and came back to talk to us. We also had some company by a strange chap who may or may not be a scientologist...Cudgel is on the case on that one. He drove by twice yelling but also taking photos. Then some time later..this "Einstein" comes walking up the walk holding a bright orange sign (yes, he did go buy poster board and a marker...srsly) the sign said ATHIEST pointing up to him..then he wrote COWARDS with an arrow he pointed to us. Goodness..he was not real...bright...in fact I have not had such an unenlightened conversation in years, heck that nutter that shadowed me during the opening last month MIGHT have been smarter than him. The symptoms I noted that made me think he might be a clam? General ignorance struck me first. He just didn't know anything..except that he was an atheist which means he believes he believes in nothing and believes that the culties have the right to believe whatever they want..(wrap your head around that one) and I said "yes I agree, I have no issues with their beliefs". He was momentarily stumped then squirted, "but you cover your faces you're cowards" And then I went slow...and tried to explain fairgame and why we cover our faces...and he got that scilon stare thing..you know, the "you're so stupid you believe that, you knows it's not true, you must read on the Internet" kind of half grin,half self-satisfied grin....hard to explain..then i was like DUDE, seriously? Please rinse and repeat the previous narrative for each of the following subjects: Human trafficking (brief explanation of each one, and countless bits on who to find information online) the RPF prison camp the child labor child sex abuse the sea org monetary crimes operation snow white Lisa's death Debbie Cook Paulette Cooper each time he did the same..thing...I said "you're a scientologist aren't you?" and he said "Am I?" and I said "If you're not a scientologist you should play one on TV" I said told them that he was standing there laughing at me, all the while hearing the AMAZING hornlove from more informed people...and I am supposed to be the stupid one? I told him that any inquisitive person would turn straight way and google ANY of the things I mentioned just to prove me wrong... and I told him he would be so embarrassed at what he found...he didn't google...I dunno...the clam juice is strong in this one..after a while you just get a feel for them. IF he is not a clam...good grief they need to go out and find him as he is already pre clear and could be a "clear" in a week or so...a poster child...for the good scientology does you. A bunch of teen passerbys also passed us on the road and came up to check out the action. More on that later...I hope. - tl;dr AntiEinstienAthiest believe nothing except that the cult has the right to believe, possible spailon, overall level of Fail? 99. Sad...a hard-of-hearing old fat elvis guy knew the cult was a cult and why...and sugar on top? he said "My granny went to this church for 75 years and she would roll over in her grave if she saw it now." Cudgel liked his sense of humor...I was just like.."ah, Mr. C...I don't think he's trying to be funny." SO a HUGE thanks to the cult who was obliging with an Open House sign...which my CULT sign looked so beautiful next to.
