When reading Marty's response, I could tell that it was carefully crafted as to not further alienate his fragile 'one-half-foot-in' flock. Marty's responses to those that would write half the criticism of his beloved LRH are filled with venom and incomprehensible attacks. I could tell he was seething while typing his response while trying to not alienate his sycophants. Anyone with a brain could see that his 'open letter' was weak in logic and highly defensive, which to a Scientologist is tantamount to a flunk. I am highly amused and also proud of all of us for these great events. I remember feeling justified and elated when a local news channel in small town middle America carried stories about protesters getting assaulted at protests. You all have taken it to another level now. Please take the time to enjoy this moment. Also, we all should show our gratitude for Tony O's great series to t1kk. If I were a female, I'd be on him like a bad disease. T1kk is a superstar in my book. Marty will continue to give us entertainment, but t1kk runs circles around Marty's blathering (and constantly changing ideology). T1kk is a true wordsmith behind the scenes that whispers reason in important ears.
