    Yes, I do live in New York city.
    So the question is if where you live, when you play the thing over a loudspeaker you'd get people to join along, like Borat did.

    News flash - Nothing about Borat is an accurate depiction of a Kazakh. Kazakhstan just had the misfortune of being a sufficiently obscure nation to Mr. Cohen's core western audience to facilitate Mr. Cohen's humor. My statement about the comedian and his antisemitic message is accurate.

    Thank you, tilda, I feel certain that many of our users were under the impression that Borat is a real person. Never let it be said that you have not made important contributions here.

    Lol derp. But your Captain Obvious "accurate statement" wasn't meant to stand on it's own. From what little sense that can be made of that posting, it was apparently meant as a segue from which to inject a load of nonsense about prevailing anti-semitism in Eurasia, Kazakhstan in particular from which (I can only assume) was somehow intended to bolster a position that Khazakstan's ban on scientology is a reflection of some imagined general intolerance towards religious minorities rather than what it is, the simple act of ending a serious racketeering fraud.

    Protip: "Acceptable truths" don't really work so well in the wog world.

    No shit, Sherlock. Also, Sacha Baron Cohen is Jewish, so your statement about him having an antisemitic message is inaccurate. This is what happens when you work for a religion that's stuck in the 90's that can't do a simple google search.

    I was pointing out the irony that Kazakhstan had earlier objected to being depicted as bigoted and now Kazakhstan is persecuting Scn, a minority religion.

    This is what happens when you respond to a post without having read it first. Now that you've mastered google search perhaps you should add scroll to your repertoire.

    You're so modest, til.

    Don't bother pointing out the irony.

    Has your Church authorized you to risk your eternity by being exposed to the entheta here. That's the only information of relevance you can possibly provide.

    Got it?

    And your response is?

    You seem to be mixing up a made up charachter who is supposedly from Kazakhstan, and Kazakhstan the real country. Kazakhstan the country never persecuted Jews or any other minorities, because Kazakhstan is in fact a home to all those that were persecuted by Stalin. So Scientology being kicked out of Karaganda region of Kazakhstan really doesn't show any trend or pattern of persecution of religions, if that is what you were trying to say. Scientology was kicked out from Karaganda for what it is - a money sucking cult.
    As for Sasha Baron Cohen - I loved his humor. And he is not only Jewish himself, but is also half Israeli, he spoke Hebrew throughout the entire Borat movie, pretending it to be Kazakh. His message was not anti-semitic, but rather anti-anti-semitic, i.e. pro-semitic.

    Tildacity Flakes, with body raisins, for improved bowel movement and pressure. So much more effective than Ano-wheat or Recto Puffs.

    You are trying too hard to disagree with me. If you read my prior posts you will see I made a very simple point and am quite clear on Mr. Cohen's ethnicity & sentiment and the character of Borat.

    In reality we disagree on little in this thread other than the impropriety of Kazakhstan's treatment of Scn and the nature of Scn itself.

    Is there any country that treats Scientology well, in your opinion?

    You would know how to scroll. You seem to be scrolling away the important questions and deal with the trivial ones like the cultie you are.

  21. What's a better metaphor? "... spread like a contagious disease..." ???

    Oh, hai OSA and socacity.

    ^^^ I like the contageous disease metaphore, though it's simply not true.
  23. Really, it's only mildly contagious but tough to cure once onset is complete.

    It's kind of like SARS.
  24. No, most are immune, but many are not.

    What is the best way to warn Kazakh schools that the children are being offered cult propaganda?

    Contacting the Embassy might be a start -
