Scientology has produced a miracle in Colombia! The nation has been overcome by the golden glow and concentric circles of the S and Double Triangle and it’s now spreading throughout the world.
So much for the hype.
Truly one of the most insidious things about scientology is the outrageously false claims they make about their accomplishments in far off lands. Funny how the miracles never seem to happen in Los Angeles or New York or Clearwater…
When the peace treaty was recently announced with FARC a few people emailed me wondering how long it would be before scientology claimed credit. Not long it seems.
And for the decline in crime. Murders plummeting. Happier families. Less divorces. Tomatoes growing to the size of melons. etc etc
There is no watchdog from the Colombian government to keep check on their ridiculous claims, and knowing this, scientology just goes to town.
There is no cause and effect relationship between any improvements in conditions in Colombia and scientology. For starters, the only thing they CLAIM to do in Colombia is hand out copies of the Way To Happiness to the military. And according to all WTH promotion, that booklet is NOT scientology. And they don’t promote it as scientology to anyone outside the bubble. In fact they get all but thrust if anyone accuses them of trying to disseminate scientology with WTH. But then when it comes time to pat themselves on the back, suddenly WTH IS “scientology.”
Let’s forget. There is one lonely, small org in the entire nation (albeit in a building bought by the IAS that is 20 times bigger than they need). They are not even the briefest blip on the radar in a nation of nearly 50 million.
The idea that scientology had anything to do with improvements in Colombia (if there are any) could ONLY be accepted by someone in the bubble. It is as absurd as claiming the distribution of WTH in Syria and Iraq is causing Isis to become more brutal and insane than ever because they are rising up against a western religion like scientology. You may remember Tony Ortega’s story from a year ago about the IAS claiming they were bringing “bright new hope” to Syria and had things well in hand in Iraq. In Syria and Iraq scientology is no more on anyone’s radar, good OR bad, than it is in Colombia or Portland Oregon.
Of course, in NONE of these places can you find any mention of these amazing accomplishments other than in scientology publications or at scientology events. Not in the media. Not on Facebook or Twitter. Not anywhere.
But remember, the promotion above talking about the miracle spreading and the demand across South America.
Being the skeptical type, I did a fast google search.
Here is what I found about exports to Peru — Colombia’s neighbor to the south?
So, there is some export happening, but apparently not the WTH.
How about Venezuela, their neighbor to the east? After all, this is a nation that has more IAS Freedom Medal winners than anywhere on earth outside the US. Most of them have been for distribution of WTH.
The most cursory check of the media shows Caracas now has the highest murder rate of any city in the world. Perhaps this is an export from Colombia?
I will not go on with any further boring proof of the lies.
It is one of the most frustrating things about those still in the bubble. They truly believe the church never lies to them. They even accept the reason they don’t see any coverage of the stories they are told is because the media is a conspiracy of merchants of chaos who want to see mankind die in a nuclear holocaust.
But the real tragedy is that 0f course, this is not just a “briefing.” The lies are used to persuade people to give MORE money to generate more “miracles.” The people that hand over their life savings, college funds, and everything short of their gold fillings are convinced they are doing GOOD. That their money will be used to help people. The truth is these things are all manufactured hype.
Wake up people. You are being FLEECED.
