    Thank you for causing me to choke on a mouthful of Sprite to save my laptop from being spat on.

    I'm sure the Manc cell will weep with sadness at this realisation.

    It's fine. We should have plenty of newnewfags to use as verbal punching bags.

  10. Have fun, guys.

    Don't forget the petition!

    Some Scientology rebuttals, with counter-arguments

    • Scientology: "The Charity Commissioner's 1999 decision that Scientology is not a religion or a charity was made in respect of Church of Scientology (UK) Ltd, and does not apply to Church of Scientology Religious Education College Incorporated (COSREC)".
    Counter-argument: This is incorrect. The Charity Commissioners say that their decision does apply to COSREC:

    • Scientology: "Church of Scientology Religious Education College Incorporated (COSREC) is an Australian charity".
    Counter-argument: This is untrue; COSREC is not an Australian charity, as COSREC itself states here:

    • Scientology: "We never claimed that Church of Scientology Religious Education College Incorporated (COSREC) was a charity".
    Counter-argument: Untrue. Applications for tax relief show Scientology making the claim that COSREC is a charity, e.g. "The Charity is a South Australian Charity", in
    COSREC financial statements for year ending December 2005 say that COSREC "was incorporated in Australia as a religious charity on 19 October 1976"

    • Scientology: "Although not a registered charity, Scientology (COSREC) is 'for charitable purposes'".
    Counter-argument: Scientology courses are not beneficial to their recipients; Scientology is not beneficial to wider society. Background information on the harm caused by Scientology can be found in these reports:
    HM Government's Foster Report:
    UK High Court:
    Time Magazine: (St Petersburg Times):
    The New Yorker:

    • Scientology: "Our critics are criminals / liars / religious bigots / terrorists"
    This is Scientology's 'attack the attacker' (also known as 'Fair Game') policy in action, consisting of ad hominem attacks and false allegations against critics. Such claims should be treated with a degree of scepticism, as the City of London Police have recognised in this document (page 4):
    "In essence this policy advocates revenge and retribution ... This area in particularly, may cause difficulty to the provenance of integrity of the complainant if not considered in the gathering of the evidence of the crime."

    ... I totally forgot to make a sign ... *rushes about gathering crafting material*
  34. SwordofTruth Member

    I'll be at piccadilly, for any newfags meeting there, just shout out "allah akbar" really loud and we should be able to spot you.
  35. SwordofTruth Member

    So who is going to do the Anti-OSA checks on new guys now !!!

    Great idea, should we wear our masks while shouting it?...I think we should carry a few electronic items in our pockets too, just to make sure we don't get bored. I hope nobody mistakes us for terrorists or anything of the likes.
  38. Christfag Member

    ARGHHH! Am I the only one at Victoria? How far is it? My friends said we should go to whichever.
  39. Skinnies Member

    I go to Victoria, if you become a regular member I'll see you next month.
  40. True Leveller Member

    It's a 10 minute walk max. I'll be in manchester early so can meet you if you want?
