    Re: Fact-checking Youth for Human Rights International

    Feeling like contributing ?
    That is why it remained unnoticed for 10 months...

    FTR, I removed the content of many of my OPs last June at a time when an Enturb staff member took the liberty of altering posts at will.

    This is an old thread that someone resurrected because the first few posts were enigmatic (they contained only a full stop).

    Ann has now restored the original content.

    This thread is one of many "fact-checking" threads created at the time whereby we went through the front organisations and showed how their boards and advisers were linked to Scientology.

    That process continues to be of value. I have drawn upon some of the "fact-checking" threads in the last week for info to poon legislators about the Utah Meth Cops Program, for example.

    It was very useful to be able to show that YHRI was a front for Scientology when we emailed government and community leaders who appeared in certain CoS videos. Some of those leaders were horrified to find that they had been included in videos promoting Scientology.

    That's just a couple of examples of how this information can be used.

    Re: Fact-checking Youth for Human Rights International

    Scientology is annoying. Chasing down these "tentacles" to chop them free of their hold is tedious and annoying. (Reminds me of the image on Time mag's "The Thriving Cult of Greed and Power" article.)

    At what point do we say "Hey, Church of Scientology! Stop trying to be everything to everyone and just be damn church if you want to be a church."

    Doesn't anyone in government think these "many" front groups are particularly odd?
