More of the recent, increasingly desperate efforts scientology is making to try to gain legitimacy.
This “press release” is so lame it is laughable. Absolutely nothing happened. A choir sang some songs. No photo of the attendees, nor any indication of how many there were.
The release, like those that have come before it, is written like a grade school report.
But apart from cloaking itself in the mantle of religion, scientology also tries to pretend they are champions of human rights.
“The Church of Scientology supports and educates others of their rights and inspires people to protect these rights of others.”
And in this case, in particular: “Human Rights Article 18, ‘Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.'”
Except of course if you are a former scientologist. Then you have no right to think, to your conscience or to freedom of religion. If you do think or speak your conscience, you are immediately deemed an enemy and have NO rights whatsoever. In fact, scientology will actively seek to destroy your rights. They will try to take away your family. Cost you your job. Start smear sites on you. Because you no longer believe what they believe you are now shit. This is how they actually PRACTICE supporting the rights of others. It’s not what they SAY but what they DO that is important.
Church of Scientology Celebrates “Freedom of Religion” for all Faiths
CLEARWATER, Fla., July 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On July 22nd the Scientology Choir, guest singers and members of the local community came together in support of freedom of religion at the Scientology Information Center in Downtown Clearwater. Guests were treated to the 2nd Annual “Night of the Arts for Human Rights” concert, focusing on Human Rights Article 18, “Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.”
The 22-person choir was joined by soloists Joe Yazbeck, who has performed with Broadway touring companies and Judy Bechar, an International singer. The Choir performed original songs by Mr. Rexford Essilfie from Ghana as well as other songs encouraging spiritual freedom, freedom of thought, and freedom to live in peace.
“The event was an all-inclusive community event. Its purpose was to raise awareness and increase acceptance of Human Rights and religious tolerance of all faiths,” said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center.
Guests also learned their human rights during the performance where Mr. Yazbeck read the audience their 30 rights laid out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to piano accompaniment. The Church of Scientology supports and educates others of their rights and inspires people to protect these rights of others.
“Music is an amazing vehicle. It transcends languages, borders and communicates to the heart and soul. We feel that acceptance of the diversity of people, and their religions will resolve much of what is happening in the world today – and a stable foundation of human rights is the building block of it all. The Scientology Choir is honored to have performed for this cause,” said Linda Ferguson, Executive Director of the Choir.
The 22-person Scientology choir is a blend of performers from across the world. They come from Canada, France, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Mexico, Russia, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States.
Joanie Sigal and Tom Godfrey, Broadway and Beyond singing duo, will perform at the next concert in the Center on August 19th.
