  2. I'm convinced this is a total hoax, conceived by some butthurt Johnny hero at RFW who is only trying to send his retarded message to anonymous, and detour us from further attacking the church.

    I suggest everyone simply ignore his ridiculous attempt at justice.

  4. No, Religious Freedom Watch isn't 100% crap. Some of the dead agenting is true - critics of Scientology are ordinary people, not Saints.

    The line of attack on RFW is that it is irrelevant. It doesn't attempt any refutation of criticism of the cult.

    When the cult moved its websites behind the Prolexic firewall in response to the DDos attacks, RFW went along with them. This was the final proof we needed that RFW is indeed a cult website, and not run by 'concerned citizens' who happen to be scientologists.

    my bigger concern than RFW is religioustolerance.org

    for info, the site (run by the Ontario Consultants for Religious Tolerance) is a massive resource of information on various social, political and ethical issues, mostly but not entirely related to religion. the majority of the information on the site is accurate and (relatively) unbiased - controversies within other religions are dealt with fairly and most sides of the argument are presented. however, their section[/url:2cxnhcfj] on Scientology is a massive whitewash.

    given OCRT run an otherwise respectable website their presentation of Scientology is a concern in that it is coming from a supposedly trustworthy source.

    the author of their pages on Scientology is an employee of the Toronto Church of Scientology. it does seem strange that they whitewash this one sect in spite of their stance on other religions; however, it should be noted that their site as a whole is extremely hostile to the counter-cult movement. here[/url:1bw3pnec], for example, is their introduction to what cults are, and consists essentially of the mantra "one man's cult is another man's religion" being drummed out again and again, without any reference to the destructive practices which cause groups to be labelled cults. Scientology is also mysteriously missing from the page. this was written by Robinson (the site's main author) alone rather than in co-operation with someone else.

    Robinson is either a Scientologist, under influence of the Scientologists, or has some unexplained anti-anti-cult hatred which causes him to whitewash these organisations.

  10. what I find somewhat amusing about RFW is that it claims to be concerned about freedom for all religions, yet the only "bigots" they list are enemies of only scientology.

    why does only one religion have "haters"?

    Surely WBC (god hates fags) has enemies too?

    Isn't there someone molested by a priest who wants to destroy catholicism?
  11. It's a political and advertising pressure front. An obvious one, if you dig in at all - but most people don't.

    Are they lobbying in your government?

    If they are, can you expose them as what they are to those they lobby against?

    am I the only one feeling that's an open invitation for us? :lol:

    The folks at RFW (OSA) love to point out how messed up someone is, without ever mentioning Scientology's role in messing them up. They call Tory a "runaway housewife" without mentioning all the things she was running away from in Scientology. They call Gerry Armstrong and Jesse Prince unemployed layabouts without mentioning that, when they left, they had no recent experience outside the Sea Org.

    In Arnie Lerma's case, he was involved in the Perot movement, and during that time he brushed shoulders with populists who were also anti-Semites. RFW would have you believe that this makes him and everyone involved in the Perot movement a Nazi.

    And of course, there's the big point that many of these critics that RFW dismisses as being crazy, stupid or criminal held high-ranking positions in the CoS for years. Does that mean that the flawless LRH tech failed to discover such "degraded beings" advancing within the ranks of Scientology itself? Or does it mean that there are normally such "criminals" inside the CoS at any given point?


    But hey, best to not ask questions, since it's all being done in the name of religious freedom! :twisted:
  15. here's an article I was already working on, whatdya think?

    There really is a LOT of stuff you can say about the witchhunts on RFW. At first, I set out to cover most of it, but that's too much for one article. Oh hey new title: "Religious Freedom Witchhunt... I mean Watch"
  16. Last week I was wondering if anything over at RFW had been updated recently. Dates on page say 2015. For reasons I cannot explain, I find reading the cult's take on anonymous lulzy and oddly of interest,

    If already posted somewhere, apologies.
    Added spacing for readability. Posting in full so you don't have to go there:



    Introduction

    A grandmother in Texas, visited by her two biracial grandchildren, is plagued by abusive phone calls, online harassment and a racist flyer posted in her neighborhood.

    A 14-year old boy in Pasadena, California, who created a “no-cussing” club is deluged with hate e-mails and death threats—nearly 50,000 per day.

    A hip-hop website is hacked and defaced with Nazi symbols, fake headlines and pictures saturated with racial slurs.
    The common denominator in these incidents? “Script kiddies”1 and cyber bullies calling themselves “Anonymous,” who get their kicks from ruining other people’s lives.

    For the past few years, Anonymous has mounted hate campaigns against selected targets, ranging from massive attacks that render websites inaccessible to spreading obscenities and degraded imagery on the Net.

    Anonymous members have infested the Internet with postings encouraging suicide and murder. They also have engaged in cyberterrorism and more conventional forms of harassment such as telephone bomb threats and vandalism.

    According to a YouTube posting from an Anonymous member, they are “people devoid of any type of soul or conscience,” who live in a place “where taboos do not exist” and have formed “a nameless, faceless, unforgiving mafia.”

    The hatred and violence generated by Anonymous is not limited to the virtual world. Pekka-Eric Auvinen posted a threat on an Anonymous forum before going on a shooting rampage, stating he was going to “kill people … in the name of anonymous.” He murdered nine people before taking his own life. Jarrad Willis, after posting a threat on an Anonymous forum to carry out a shopping mall massacre, committed suicide the day before he was to appear in court on related charges.

    Certain high-profile members of Anonymous have come forward with details of the group’s behind-the-scenes criminal activities. Included in this publication are a few excerpts from the story that unfolded.
    How Did Anonymous Begin?

    Anonymous was born on an online image board called 4chan.org, created in 2004. Anonymous congregated on a an online forum known as “/b/”2, where nothing is off-limits, including mutilated bodies and bestiality.

    Later, some Anonymous members moved from 4chan to 7chan because 4chan had “deprived us of our jailbait,” (referring to child pornography). While 7chan no longer exists, Anonymous has created several other “chan” image boards where they post porn, denigrating and obscene comments and racial slurs.

    In December 2004, Encyclopedia Dramatica3 was created, and Anonymous material began appearing there. According to Wired Magazine, Encyclopedia Dramatica is a “wikified lexicon of all things /b/.”4
    “The Sekrit Code of Anonymous” was published on Encyclopedia Dramatica, stating: “Anonymous is devoid of humanity, morality, pity, and mercy.”

    When Anonymous members engage in their so-called real-life “raids,” they hide behind masks, such as the image of 17th century anarchist Guy Fawkes, to conceal their identities while infringing upon the rights of others.

    Anonymous claims to have no leaders, but there is clearly a hierarchy within the group. Why do Anonymous members hide behind anonymity and pretend to have no leaders? It is a convenient facade for perverse and sometimes criminal activity on the Internet.

    One prominent member and organizer is Gregg Housh, who was convicted in 2005 for conspiracy to violate copyright laws–for his part in a software piracy operation. In October 2008 he was ordered by a court in Boston to stay away from the Church of Scientology, after admitting to disturbing religious services. He was warned that he could face incarceration if he further violated his probation.
    At least two Anonymous members have been convicted for making terrorist threats. Other criminal cases are pending.

    Stated goal of Anonymous

    The following words are taken from online postings by Anonymous members. While some members may claim other goals and intentions, or claim these are merely a “joke,” they cannot divorce themselves from the hate that Anonymous threatens and promotes.
    “We will stop at nothing until we’ve achieved our goal. Permanent destruction of the identification role.”
    “Anything standing in our way, doesn’t deserve to live. We are void of human restraints, taught to never forgive. Answering the question of who we are is a must. We are Anonymous, indeed. Therefore, Expect us.”

    Anonymous doctrine

    In a “Message to New Anon from Old Anon,” Anonymous members state:
    “Some maladjusted Asian shoots up his university, we laugh. Fifty-thousand die in North Korea, we laugh. AIDS ravages a continent, we laugh.”

    “We are human nature unencumbered by pointless ethics, foolish moralities or arbitrary laws and restrictions.”

    “We have no culture, we have no laws, written or otherwise. We are an autonomous collective, each an insignificant part of a whole. … We do not feel remorse. We will tear you apart from outside and in, we have all the time in the world.”

    The “Anonymous Manifesto of Philosophic Condition” states:
    “Right or wrong? No. We destroy for destruction’s sake.”
    “Welcome to nihilism made manifest in Western Civilization.”
    “Strong were the Nazis, who worshiped might and power to destroy.”
    “Strong nihilism has emerged in resentment of a superfluous society.”
    “Anonymous has achieved a persona. Anthropologists would call it a ‘death cult.’ We have subjugated our individuality for our thirst for hatred. … We have shattered lives.”

    In short, Anonymous is poisoning the Internet with their subversive writings.

    Racism & Religious Hatred

    Anonymous has targeted Blacks, Jews and Muslims with their hate propaganda. They have denigrated people of all faiths for their religious beliefs with a barrage of demeaning images and obscenities.
    In one instance, Anonymous launched an online attack on two popular hip-hop websites, defacing them with swastikas and racial slurs against blacks. The hackers also stole personal information on employees of one of the sites.

    Racist, anti-Semitic and other anti-religious images and postings abound on Anonymous sites. Some examples are included herein; others were so offensive they were left out.

    Calls for Violent Action, Murder & Suicide

    Anonymous members have directed debased and perverse postings to young people, often emotionally vulnerable, goading them to take their own lives. They have posted photographs and instructions online encouraging suicide —and murder.

    They have exploited the grief of a family who lost a loved one. The parents of a 7th-grader who shot himself with a rifle were bombarded with prank calls for over a year concerning his death. Anonymous joked about his death, hacked into his MySpace page and turned his face into a zombie.

    Anonymous insiders have admitted to vandalism, bomb threats, plans to create and use pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails against the Church of Scientology, and other illegal tactics of their hate campaign.
    Even a brief visit to their online forums and websites reveals that Anonymous is in fact a “death cult” as stated in the Anonymous Manifesto.

    Who can say how many deaths may have resulted from Anonymous postings?

    Cyber-Terrorism & Terrorist Threats

    Fox News aired a special report exposing Anonymous in July 2007, after Anonymous hacked a MySpace account and plastered it with images of gay pornography.

    In response, Anonymous assaulted Fox News computers with massive attacks from multiple computers, designed to overload Fox’s computers and make them inaccessible–known as a Distributed Denial of Service, or “DDoS” attack.

    In early 2008, Anonymous launched 141 million malicious hits against Church of Scientology websites, in an attempt to bring down those sites. During the same period, there were 41 death threats, 56 bomb and arson threats, 103 other threats of violence and 40 incidents of vandalism against the Church. One Anonymous member now faces criminal charges for those DDoS attacks.
