I was just wondering if anyone had been paying attention to the spread of this. I had only just found out recently, but they are protesting scientology, if you dont know about it I recommend you look it up on youtube.
It's funny that over on the other site we had a chan scare, and the channers basically amounted to internet bullys, but now they seem to be going for a seemingly more just cause. I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on this, as it shouldn't be completely disregarded. I personally am at a fork, on the one hand I believe this type of protesting could have an impact, possibly even a good one, on the other I have seen the worst of the chan and other anonymous groups. I am being brief to open discussion and to see what others think.

I was recently shown the video, and at first i thought they were simply up to their usual shenanigans of internet...is reterditism a word? i dunno...up to their usual crap.
but then i actually checked into what they were talking about...and i got pissed off.
I thought the Westboro Baptist Church and that insane family that started it was the only "religion" out there that could infuriate me this much. For once, Anonymous is actually bringing people's attention to something worth giving a crap about.

Look up some Scientologist propaganda (i am NOT using the term loosely) and some of the interviews of Tom Cruise on the subject of medication. I take a strong stance against attacking religions unless they try to force any dogma or theology down my throat. well, it looks like Scientologists want to do just that, the world over.

But, like i said, that's my opinion. watch the Anonymous video, then go figure out what their talking about. it's not pretty. and it's not like this thing with Anonymous is going to bottom out into nothingness, either. their forming protests and getting word out across the net...and the fact that it's shown up here just means that the word-of-mouth thing is working.

The sad thing is that Tom Cruise used to be an OK guy. But then he had to go and make himself the poster child of a psycho squad....

That's my opinion, anyways. I'm with Vant on this one. Usually, I'm all for letting people believe and worship however they want, because that's their right-AS LONG as they don't try to shove it on other people who don't want it. I'm a flower-child-anarchist-crazypants, I don't like it when any person or group tries to sell their views as the "one truth" as if no one else matters. There is a line between expressing your views and being a jerk about it. Scientology has crossed that line, and so, IT IS ON.

Beatings will continue until moral improves.

I don't know much about it; could someone link the video?

The only thing I learned about Scientology EVER was on South Park.

Blogging, internet 'raids', and "don't taze me, bro!" are the measure of civil disobedience now and its f*cking pathetic. Did these people just figue out that Scientology is a pyramid scheme? How did suddenly Scientology get on he forefront of things that should outrage the public?...That's like getting angry at Am-Way. But I guess this is what propaganda and media blackout has reduced us to. There are no consequences on the internet, anarchy is about action, not complaining or crashing websites. So you write code and eat your Hotpockets while real issues are killing people. Nice.

Scientology creeps me the f*** out.

Yeah, I know that all of us around here believe in some "weird" or "crazy" things, too, according to most standards out there; but I think even most of us are saying or going to be saying, "That's just out there, man. How do folks get caught up in all that?" What's scary to me is that certain celebrities I thought were intelligent -- like Will Smith, for a recent example -- are buying into this stuff.

From what I've read, the folks at Scientology will make you pay thousands of dollars before you can get to a certain "level" of . . . I don't know, enlightenment? Anyway, once you get to that level, they will then, and only then, tell you what I presume is their core belief: that the angry alien Xenu captured a bunch of Thetans, brought them here to earth, and nuked them in volcanoes -- and that's how the rest of the world was born, if I recall correctly. So this is their core belief, I presume, but you can't tell anybody about it without them having paid thousands upon thousands of dollars to them, first.

I'll take "cults" for five hundred, please.

Anyway . . . folks be crazy, yo.

Yeah, I found that a little odd, too, Ash. In the SP episode I watched, they told the whole story, along with the caption: "This is what Scientologists actually believe". Plus, any religion in which you are forced to pay to be a part of isn't any religion that anyone with even a quarter of a brain should join.

Quoted for truth.

Seriously, guys. There are so many more important things happening than Scientology (genocide, anyone?) that people can actually do something about right now and it has nothing to do with staring at your computer screen.

It seems about time for me to do something myself. Though I promise that it won't be about Scientology.
