Scientology and the BBC
In anticipation of its negative view of the cult they have posted a YouTube video of reporter John Sweeney losing his cool.
On the BBC website Sweeney defends his outburst:
'While making our BBC Panorama film "Scientology and Me" I have been shouted at, spied on, had my hotel invaded at midnight, denounced as a "bigot" by star Scientologists, brain-washed - that is how it felt to me - in a mock up of a Nazi-style torture chamber and chased round the streets of Los Angeles by sinister strangers.
'Back in Britain strangers have called on my neighbours, my mother-in-law's house and someone spied on my wedding and fled the moment he was challenged.
'I have met mothers who say they have suffered Scientology "disconnects" - meaning that their children have cut them completely out of their life so that they can spend more time with an organisation which a judge in 1984 characterised as "corrupt, sinister and dangerous".'
Scientology is not a cult that should be messed with, in the past they have taken on the notoriously anarchic South Park animation series who took a poke at them.
The current battle with the BBC shows that Scientology is able to run rings round media organisations by using the Internet and by making their own videos. The BBC has to acknowledge that they are no longer a privileged source of entertainment and education for the masses, and that groups or people with alternative viewpoints now have a media voice that is independent of national and establishment control.

The Metaresonant Temple
Mooch Factor 23 tells us that 'I have been absent for some time, however, this is just a perceptual limitation of your stupid eyes! For you see, I have been traveling at a consistent velocity of c for the past 1.4 days in a stolen concept-spacecraft of an alien corporation. What corporation is this, I hear you ask?
'It all started when myself as my robot sidekick, ‘Waa!’, had detected abnormally high levels of schizoid-fluxed psychic energy pattern outbursts amongst users of the “Buzz Lightyear space ranger spin” ride at Disneyworld. Disguised as pancakes, we observed from a distance as ordinary tourists stumbled from the ride’s exist, muttering alien obscenities against the human race and proceeding to the nearest confectionary booth, whereupon they proceeded to consume vast amounts of sugar-based products in an unconscious attempt to prevent the cellular bonds of their internal organs and bones from disintegrating due to the deadly vibrational impact that utterance of these alien words resonated throughout their bodies. But all of this maniacal consumption was in vain, for it was not long before each and every one of the poor wretches collapsed in a bundle of empty, Disney merchandise-clad skin.'
Makes more sense than 'real' UFO contactee stories with a dash more humour. Perhaps, the damned greys have got to this person without him suspecting?
