Ideas for 3/15 FOCUSED MESSAGE 2/10 was an amazing success, and I do not think that the chaos in the message was a bad thing at that time. There is simply so much insanity rolled into that little cult that it can take weeks to take it all in and figure it all out. However, this can be a problem for the general public, and it is being suggested in numerous places that we need a more focused message for 3/15. Let's suggest them in this thread, and then choose one to disseminate to the rest of the internets. #1. SCIENTOLOGY DESTROYS FAMILIES. We can talk about "disconnection" and the "force abortions". We can focus on just about everything about being harmfull for children too, though I think that needs it's own possible focus point. Child slavery, RPF, the idea that kids are the same as adults (including sexually). Sea Org gets 1 hour of family time a day? #2. TAX EXEMPTION Why do Scientology religious schools get tax exemption in the U.S. when others do not? Why can they charge fees for religious knowledge, when others do not. Could you copyright the Bible? Operation Snow White. #3. CHILDREN This would be much like the family angle, but more focused. Tax exemption for schools. Not teaching normal classes in school, but sticking only to Scientology ideas. Children being included in sex acts? Get Applied Scholastics and Study Tech out of schools. Children being removed from parents. Forced abortions. Children being locked-up? Gabriel Scott Williams. #4. SILENCING OF CRITICISM Copyright infringment notices. Fair game. Harassment of critics. Operation Freak Out. R2-45. Lawsuits and practicing law as a way to harass. Ex-Sci being afraid of retaliation. #5. MESSAGES TO THE SCIENTOLOGISTS THEMSELVES Do you know any OT's with cancer? Why did LRH die? "You have families who love you." Is smoking really not bad for you? Is the RTC keeping you from reaching your next level? Could the Orgs be managed better? Are you ever treated unfairly by the church? Do you miss your friends who've "blown"? "We won't sec check or reg you over here." Is Miscavige the right leader? #6. THE CRIMES OF SCIENTOLOGY This one simply might be too big and chaotic. Lisa McPherson. Kidnappings in France. Operation Freak Out. Operation Snow White. LRH sentenced to 4 years in prison. Large weapon purchases. Gabriel Scott Williams. Donald Anthony Strawn. ----------------------------------------------- This is not to say that the message chosen is the only one that should be used. No matter what course is taken, all other messages would be okay. But it'd be good to have most people on the same wavelength, and push that to the media. Add more ideas and add to the ideas above. We need to get the ideas down so we can make a concrete selection and get our people informed for the 15th.
