    Maybe Illinois Rep. Burke needs to give Mr. Ramirez a 'heads up' as to what he's letting Cameron County in for using TWTH as a basis for teaching morals and values.

    Links to Criminon, Narconon, Way to Happiness and "Bridge Community Outreach"

    Can we say Scientology, Harlingen, Texas?
    Yes I knew you could.

    Looks like Tommy Ramirez is in it up to his eyebrows. Might be worth checking some of the other things mentioned to see their connection as well.

    The question is, whose morals and values are they teaching? Certainly not mine.

    Methinks we scored a point or two. Comments open, and Anon is ahead.

    from the article:
    Julie Herrington, a member of The Bridge’s fund-raising committee, said that rumors that the name “The Bridge” has something to do with Scientology is nonsense

    No Julie doin' it wrong.... Scientology is nonsense.
    you said it yourself! lol!!!

    i take it this must be in Texas... TX has been overly defensive of Applied Scholastics being on their approved SES list, to the point of hostile rudeness.
  15. xenubarb Member

    San Benito, Texas.
  16. Hostile Rudeness is just the par for the course in Texas. Once you start getting the republicans involved this thing will go down quick. brb.... checking who the representative of the area is.

    when your done looking into / pooing this, please consider lending a hand on the Applied Scholastics Tutors in public schools in Texas... i've been trying long distance for nigh on 2years now and I cant seem to get anywhere in that state (and Louisiana as well), needs local halp badly:

    read the thread and related wiki page, then ask me questions here if u got any...

    state board of ed needs pooned (and it takes several offensive letters w/ proper timing being at the end of a school year), plus local school districts where Applied Scholastics is allowed to provide tutors needs investigated for other possibilities (defensive actions).

    BTW this is Harlingen, not San Benito.

    I'm having trouble posting in that thread in the Herald. Can someone point out that this isn't just a question of the Way to Happiness?
    That the county and the city are hosting Narconon and Criminon in that Center. So essentially that means they are underwritng money going to
    Scientology. Some things about the lack of safety of the Narconon process would be nice too.

    Texas has a large Roman Catholic population. Last year the Catholic archbishop of Castries, the capital of St. Lucia devoted that last third of his Easter homily to denouncing infiltration of the island by The Way To Happiness International. The Easter homily is the most important sermon a Catholic bishop gives all year.

    Dialog Ireland has published background information and the entire text of the homily:

    A Challenge to Faith and Catholic Identity-Scientology in view: Archbishop Robert Rivas, O.P.

    The Harlingen BRIDGE Outreach Center?:

    'Contacted for comment on the name change, Karin Pouw, of the Church of Scientology International’s public relations office in California, responded in an e-mail.
    “There was a technical issue concerning the trademark involved which was rapidly resolved to everyone’s satisfaction. We wish the Harlingen Bridge Outreach Center the very best success.”
    The Church of Scientology website shows that Bridge Publications is the publishing arm for the church and prints L. Ron Hubbard’s books.
    Hubbard is the founder of the Church of Scientology International."

    So calling it the Bridge was more trademark offending than "Harlingen Bridge Outreach Center"? THat's kinda weird....

    Too bad all it did was get them to change the name.... did we figure out that the youth center wanted to use Dianetics inspired stuff?
