Michael Fairman (who left scientology recently but still drinks the koolaid) has a post on Marty's site where he uses the work "Common Sense" by Thomas Paine, and tries to tie this in with the freezone movement breaking free from Miscavige, just as the colonies broke free from King George: Thomas Paine is a thinker that many people choose to cherry pick quotes from...but they ignore his full body of work. He was pretty radical for his time, and still radical to many. I posted this comment...I wonder if it will make it past moderation Maybe they will post it because they put scientology in another category and don't see it is true of all religions if they get enough power. I wish the Martyologists actually DID read Thomas Paine. Most people could use a dose of his words.
