Scientology actually sent out an email that includes this:
“When we go door to door with booklets, crime takes a holiday. When we run out of booklets and can’t get any out, there is a rise in crime and murder.”
And immediately following is the “ask” — of course. You need to give us money.
But wow, IF this were really true, would the IAS, or the church or someone just print up the booklets and get them out tout de suite? Set aside the actual value of doing this for society. Just think about the goodwill. And the PR. And boy, could they use some goodwill and PR right about now….
So, how are these, the greatest humanitarians on earth, allowing their supply of booklets to “run out” and therefore creating a “rise in crime and murder”?
WTF scientology? WTF IAS? You are not using any of your billions to improve conditions in Los Gatos but are instead, by your own account, helping to murder people….
Or perhaps they just don’t believe their own lies?

Subject: Way To Happiness Books needed!
There are two groups in San Jose and Monterey counties working to handle crime and morality. When we go door to door with booklets, crime takes a holiday. When we run out of booklets and can’t get any out, there is a rise in crime and murder.
Please help us by donating The Way to Happiness booklets. Both Stevens Creek and Los Gatos have them in stock – they just need people to buy them! If they are bought, one of the two groups will hand them out.
One group is led by Shea Pase, Dee Kenville and Jane Mitchel and we are working hard to handle Seaside. So far we have handed out 650 in Seaside in the last month. We just got 3 more boxes and will hand those out this week. But we need more! Seaside has a population of 30,000, so there is a long way to go.
Michele Arora leads the other group – she and her volunteers are out every weekend handing out booklets and things get very calm in San Jose when she gets out at least 600 in a weekend. If she runs out, crime kicks up again.
If you have a business, you can also get specialty covers that can advertise your business and support this program. Talk to any one of us on how to do that.
It is time to change the world!!! Please help us!
Just another example of the endless hypocrisy of the largest humanitarian force on earth.
But really, hypocrisy is just another word for LYING.
This email is a lie. Pure and simple.
And it comes from the very same people who constantly claim that everyone who says anything about them they don’t like is a liar.
The fact of the matter is that to be a “good” scientologist, you must lie. It is part of the DNA of a scientologist.
- You have to lie to yourself about your “wins” in order to keep up with the status quo (and justify the money you forked over).
- You have to lie to regges about how how much money you have.
- You have to lie to your auditor in order to get through your endless sec checks.
- You have to lie in success stories about remarkable gains and abilities that you think will satisfy those you are trying to get to allow you to attest.
- You have to lie to friends and family who are not scientologists about your actual beliefs and dismiss any “negative” questions.
- You have to lie to protect the church because it is the “greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics.”
- You have to lie to the media or anyone outside the church about how great everything is inside, and the massive expansion.
It goes on.
And it is why the church can then proclaim that anyone speaking out about their abuses is a liar. They know. They even have the evidence — often in your own handwriting. Because EVERYONE in scientology learns how to lie. Subtly or unashamedly depending on the level of immersion into the scientology mindset. The futher in you are (either auditing level wise or staff/Sea Org wise), the more you lie and the more blatant it becomes.
But it is always amusing to see the church trying to “dead agent” people by claiming they have proof they are liars. Because their proof is always that they LIED FOR SCIENTOLOGY or IN SCIENTOLOGY.
I guess it has never dawned on Miscavige that this is a terrible indictment of scientology and its “tech.” And morals.
Or that those outside the bubble become even more convinced that scientologists lie every time the church claims that “ex-scientologists” are liars WHEN THEY WERE IN THE CHURCH.
Lying is a way of life in scientology. And if you cannot see it, you are simply lying to yourself.
