    Remember this quote, it will come in handy:

    (from World news Feed Article | World news | guardian.co.uk )

    This is Tommy Davis stating that the Purif Rundown - on which Narconon and Second Chance, programs they insist on describing as 'secular', are based on - is a spiritual, religious ceremony. He's denying it has any medical value or purpose.

    might be good for info packs about narconon
    and putting them on the hotseat about it

    Personally, I think one of the best uses for this would be the Second Chance scenario down in NM. Add this quote to any email that's being send to legislators. With the ling, of course.

    Last time I checked Narconon was only allowed to operate as a rehab facility because it is secular. This pretty much says it isnt.

    Which means shut it down!

    I believe it was a pause in the original audio, IIRC.

    I omitted a few words, hence the ellipsis

    Re: Remember this quote, it will come in handy:

    Right, but it would still be the honest thing to have the full quote available, so anyone reading this knows you're not taking it out of context. I fully support popularizing the version you posted (with the ellipsis), but please do post the full quote.

    This should be the main focus in harpoons ?


    ""Davis, the Scientology spokesman, acknowledged the detoxification program, but said its benefits are spiritual.

    "Scientology is a religion," he said. "We deal with the spirit, and mental and spiritual factors that affect someone's happiness and well-being.""

    Re: Remember this quote, it will come in handy:

    The joke is Scientology acts like we make up stuff, and that "SP's" have the incorrect data on the entetha internetz...

    but really all the nasty, tax and religion stripping information comes out of their own mouths and writings and they cant even see it because they're brainwashed or insane.



    Tommy Davis should quit and go work for the DEA teaching about gun safety, cuz he be da only mo fucka in da room qualified nuff to carry dis glock foty.

    Re: Remember this quote, it will come in handy:

    I would like to see actual quotes from Tommy Davis, as the quote from the article is the journalist characterizing Davis's statements, then providing one quote which does not directly prove our case. It would be ideal to have this in Tommy's own words.

    If I were in a position to follow through at the moment, I'd be tracking down and contacting the journalist. Sadly I am not, but if someone reading this is looking for a way to contribute, follow-through on this would be helpful.

    In London, at least, the free newspapers that push Purif now echo that comment. It seems to be 'new policy'.

    The result is that the paper now looks even less convincing than before.

    Re: Remember this quote, it will come in handy:

    Didn't a new UK law go into effect relatively recently regarding claiming medical benefits from quackery? Maybe they're covering their asses; in which case, the law is doing what it's supposed to - it's protecting the citizenry and destroying a snake-oil salesman.
  21. Re: Remember this quote, it will come in handy:

    It did indeed; I suspect it's a combination of this, and the Advertising Standards ruling.

    A law? Doing what it's supposed to do? How rare...

    Tommy is just quantifying the cults own disclaimer about the purif


    "The Purification Rundown is a Spiritual activity based on and administered according to the doctrine and practices of the religion of Scientology as set forth in the writings of L. Ron Hubbard and adopted by the Church. No part of the Rundown is intended as the diagnosis, prescription for, or treatment of any bodily or physical condition or ill."

    Re: Remember this quote, it will come in handy:

    The quote doesn't mention the detoxification program, sounds like he's talking about scientology in general.

    Which of course is pure crap as well.
