Andrew Morton Interviewed



Jan. 15: Andrew Morton answers email questions on MSNBC. Listen carefully.

In the below video, he's interviewed on the Today Show, where he defends his unauthorized biography of the celebrity and talks about why the Church of Scientology is so against it.



Very interesting.

To All the Curious Current, Former and Never Members Of Scientology

Hello to All the Curious Current, Former and Never Members Of Scientology.

Dear readers,
alt.religion.scientology can be a confusing place unless you know how to 'sift the wheat from the chaff'. Don't be dismayed. There's a simple rule to go by to know who to trust.

What does Scientology NOT want you to read? Many things but most importantly CoS does not want you to read and follow helpful information nor visit critical web sites that are linked in many ARS former scientologist member posts.

For those in doubt about the Church of Scientology or who want to know who to trust on alt.religion.scientology, be sure to get all the facts before you find yourself being misled by scientology operatives pretending to be critics.

For basic info on how to get around and understand what is expected of posters ARS, go here:

An Alt.Religion.Scientology FAQ (1.7.6)
http://www.daisy.freeserve.co.uk/faq.htm

A.R.S.. Short FAQ for Newcomers version 0.12
http://suburbia.net/%7efun/scn/links/ufaq.txt

In reading posts here, beware of comments by LaserClam, TruthSeeker & the various .Lily. ID's, because they are shills for OSA. They and other church sanctioned 'spies' here cannot post the following links because these are the real web sites and links which scientology does not want you to visit for fear that you will come to know the importance of information that is intentionally kept from members.

Visit Ron Sharp's Circle Jerk Report to see who are the Circle Jerks, Noisemakers and Trolls
http://home.primus.ca/~ronsharp/circlejerk.html
to see the spammers, such as " All the anti-psych spammers who talk to no one but themselves, All the "true critics" who are the only of their kind, All the sock puppets of the raving nutter Babble Shorts, They'd none of 'em be missed--they'd none of 'em be missed!"

Now, when I was a member of scientology, I never read the news or watched TV, believing that it was all "bad news" but the fact is that I and others were hoodwinked in this idea so that we would never bother to look at conflicting data, which we should have been able to know about and evaluate for ourselves. Take time to look at all that is available and see the facts for yourself.

Below are web sites that CoS & OSA posters cannot post links to in their confusing & covert messages, like the ones you have most likely seen recently on ars here. Certainly visit their links, if any but beware that those few noted in their posts are monitored by the church.

Check out these important videos and websites and save or bookmark this post for future reference. I find that the following are essential for the new reader:
