The Real Costs of Joining the Church of Scientology | Sapling.com

Please note that this article was taken down after the website owners/company was threatened by the sinister, insidious, law-breaking, psychological abusive CULT of Scientology, of a huge lawsuit. Therefore it has been mirrored. Too bad, ‘church’, you can’t erase what was posted to the internet.

Suing me would prove my point, including millions more. The tekch doesn’t work, OT powers don’t exist, or I wouldn’t have typed this.

“Most of us were a little taken aback when Tom Cruise jumped on the couch on The Oprah Winfrey Show over his love for then new girlfriend, Katie Holmes. We knew he was a Scientologist, but because of the mystery surrounding the religion, we didn’t know whether any of his behavior had to do with Scientology or if he was just a bit off (don’t forget that argument with Matt Lauer about psychiatry).But the secrets of this mysterious “religion,” with celebrities like Cruise and John Travolta as the unofficial spokesmen, have been revealed over time.

First, there was a South Park episode that detailed parts of Scientology’s doctrine in 2005. It was shocking for Non-Scientologists to learn the doctrine that only Scientologists of the highest levels are privy to. This is what the big secret was? Something that could be out of a sci-fi novel? The gist is: Frozen galactic Lord Xenu sent other frozen aliens to earth 75 million years ago and put them in volcanoes. These volcanoes then exploded and now these souls float around to cling to us and cause us pain and problems in our current lives. Scientology’s aim would be to rid us of those once frozen aliens so we could become “clear.”

Which brings us to 2015 and the award winning documentary Going Clear (based on a book of the same name) that completely shredded the veil that separated the general public from the secrets of Scientology. Former members and experts –like The New Yorker writer and author of the book Going Clear, Lawrence Wright – revealed everything from the full doctrine, to disconnection (a form of shunning), to auditing, to billion year contracts minors can sign, to “the hole” as a form of punishment (it’s even worse than it sounds), and other abuses.

But this past year, it would be Leah Remini, a former Scientologist, who would focus specifically on the abuses Scientology has committed in Scientology and the Aftermath, as well as focusing on the mindset of people in the religion and why they do not leave when abused. Just this week, the show was renewed by A&E for a second season, undoubtedly making some parts of Hollywood very unhappy.

Whether Scientology is a religion or a cult is debatable (and people do debate it). But one thing that differentiates it from other religions is the cost. You must pay to “move up the bridge.” Scientology also makes certain promises at each level, motivating people to pay to move up “the bridge” and even pressuring people to pay to “to help save the planet.” So, what does it cost if you aren’t a celebrity but want to be a Scientologist? And what do you get for your money?

Remini has claimed she has spent millions of dollars, but that the average person pays over a quarter of a million dollars in their lifetime (as well as spending hours each day studying their teachings).

The books

There are twelve basic books a Scientologist needs to buy. These cost about $4,000. But there is a catch. Every time there is an update to the books (as in oh, we missed this part of L. Ron Hubbard’s writings last time but now it’s fixed), a Scientologist needs to buy a new set. Apparently, this happens quite often. There is also pressure to buy sets to donate to libraries as well as to buy CDs and lectures from the now deceased founder’s, L. Ron Hubbard, teachings.

Scientology 101

The most basic level courses can cost as little as $15 to $35. Remini says these courses are used to hook people so that eventually they will pay a much steeper price to reach higher levels in the religion. Frankly, it’s good business sense not to ask for much at the beginning. It’s only once people are fully entrenched that the bills start to mount.

The Bridge

In order to become “clear” and reach complete spiritual enlightenment, one has to climb “The Bridge to Total Freedom.” These courses are about $650 each but there are a lot of them and they can also require hours of studying. Some courses, Remini claims, require studying from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m seven days a week.

The upside? Once you get to the higher levels like Remini did, you’re promised that you can move things with your mind or even cure cancer. Former members, like Remini, claim they never experienced such this, though.

Auditing

The simplest way to explain auditing is to call it therapy, but that is not wholly accurate. It involves a machine called the E-Meter (which is technically one-half of a lie detector test) that Scientologists believe has the capability to measure the mass of thoughts.

The auditor is able to read the E-Meter to tell if an individual is “clear” or not. The church charges around $800 per hour and auditing is a necessary part of moving up The Bridge. You can’t skip it.

The church may also require you to do extra auditing if they think you are committing “transgressions.” Many types of religions require you to make amends or confess if you have erred or sinned. But they don’t charge you $800 an hour to do it. By the way, it may be $800 an hour but a minimum session is two and a half hours long.

And that’s just the bare bones. Members are pressured to give to certain Scientology causes and to constantly continue up the bridge. Once you reach the highest levels, you would still require auditing.

Since the Church of Scientology has tax exemption status – hence their do or die rally against the IRS in the 1993 – their coffers are full AF of cash they don’t have to pay taxes on. If you think it’s messed up, then don’t miss Leah Remini’s next season of Scientology and the Aftermath. According to Remini and the victims on the show, the money is the smallest abuse this “church” commits against its followers.”


Dominic R. or likely amanda mew/mewen/mewie brown’s was forced to make a false police report to (supposively) make me remove content?

Update: turns out it was amanda who forced him to make the false report?

Well, this happened a few months ago to be honest, it wasn’t the least bit surprising or shocking either for that matter. I missed a phone call from a detective, who left a brief message. After listening to it, I called them back. I was thinking… “Who could have made this call?” Once I got on the phone with the detective, I asked who made the unlawful police report, the detective disclosed who did it, which turned out to be none other than Dominic R.

I briefly explained to the detective and mentioned that this person was hell-bent into censoring my rights to freedom of expression/speech/thought,choice and about the internet drama that was related to it all. She understood and probably wasn’t too happy to know they made a false report.

Well, case closed, I don’t think they’ll be doing that again any time soon. Abusing law enforcement is foolish: You can be charged for making a bogus/prank/unlawful/false report/call to police and they can track you down depending on the severity of it. Anyways, I won’t be deleting any of the content/media that is linked/hosted at all. It stays up. It never comes down. Period. It’s been a while since the last time this crap happened,

I don’t want to make another chronicals of truth podcast vlog about this either, but I probably will if it keeps up. This time, NAMES WILL BE MENTIONED if it crosses the line.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, if the named person is reading this, I suggest that he moves on, right away. Let it go, drop it. Life is more important than internet drama that nobody gives a rotting shit about.


Did Amanda Mewen/Mew/Mewie Brown or her boyfriend send me photos and dox? – Chronicals of Truth Podcast!

So this is the second release of the Chronicals of Truth podcast… Apparently mewen/mewie/mew brown or dominic sent me photos and dox on March 4, 2014 and wanted them to be published all over porn sites. Well, I figured out that red flag quite easily, and didn’t bother.

First of all, I don’t use porn sites, so why would I even bother registering just to post the photos? Why would I even want to post such photos if they were from (and file history proves this) on december 31, 2013? It appears they were the same photos sent to many facebook groups everybody affected, was a part of, so no sense repeating that trash.

Second, I checked the IP addresses from the headers and the first 6 e-mails were spoofed using only yahoo’s headers… That is, until this one odd IP was checked and it turns out it was from new hempshire on cogeco.. BINGO! If they thought spoofing it work, well, it did not. The address isn’t that far from mewen/mew/mewie’s anyways, since it was crosschecked using basic map software.

Third, impersonating themselves was hilarious, mildly stupid and interesting at the same time. Even I could do that better, but it didn’t take me long to figure it all out now did it? I may have a disability of a few, but I’m certainly not stupid or dumb. The internet works in mysterious ways, information is the same, you find out things between the lines.

The podcast is embedded below.

It seems like some psycho bitch was harassing me… Well, here is the transcript before s/he deleted their account!

This post was edited, apparently it wasn’t who I originally thought it was.

Please note that names were changed and any references to something stupid was swapped and changed too. This way, nobody can be identified, except the fucking idiot that tried this. I just know when I sent this shit to douglas, he will instantly know it was mewen or her boyfriend who’s now resorting to cyberstalking and harassment, which is an all new low for the two of them. It seems this is only going to get more juicier as time goes by. Oh and no, this shit is not going to be taken down either.

**THE PERSON DELETED THEIR ACCOUNT AFTER BEING EXPOSED**


I am not surprised about encyclopedia dramatica archiving the amanda mewen/mew/mewie brown videos…

Before you start reading and getting all excited, please note that I will always be a critic of E/D, since I don’t agree with what goes on with that website and it’s content. I am just writing this as a result of what just occurred. Now, on to the post…

It came to me as a surprise to be honest, I was sent a message on (REDACTED, none of anyone’s business) five nights ago, with the links to all of the videos… What does that actually mean now that somebody else has ALL nine videos? That means something entirely brilliant. The striesand effect has taken effect.

That means I won’t have to worry about somebody demanding me to delete the videos anymore… They will be up there for eternity and nobody will ever be taking anything of the sort down, any more, period. I suggest now that this writer of the wordpress, be left out of any further chaos, as it is entirely out of his control. Whoever does what with the videos, is their choice.

For those that WANT it down, let’s just say… Good luck with that. Why you might ask? Nothing on that wiki will ever come down. People have tried many times, in the tens to thousands, to remove articles… They just came back seconds later. I wouldn’t be surprised if they are already in the works of writing an article about mewen brown, wouldn’t that be something? Of course, they’re free to use my wordpress for a citation, as anybody else can too, since it is of my own writing, opinions and thoughts, nothing more.

Oh and if you want to see the videos, here they are, linked below. They aren’t going anywhere. As I said previously, when the internet sees something that is at risk of censorship, it does what must be done to prevent it from happening.

Recorded skype call from amanda mewen/mew/mewie brown’s (former) internet friend that you DON’T want to miss!

Here is the recordings that I made (dominic recorded it too, probably gutted his share to keep the “goodies”.) and now am sharing with you all.

Get your ears ready!! I was playing along the entire time, so was douglas… While he couldn’t tell if I was serious or not, regardless of what he was really making a big big BIG issue out of. Notice the intimidation topic he uses? He really has issues… if he thinks people will delete everything off of the internet (in the form of a photo, audio or video) that even references the words mewen, mew, mewie or mewen brown, mew brown, mewie brown that other people used as titles, descriptions or tags, it won’t even work. People have the right to freedom of expression, freedom of speech, freedom of thought and nobody, but NOBODY can tell anybody they don’t have those rights on the internet or in real life. Frankly, he doesn’t even own the god damn words, since Nintendo owns a pokemon called Mew. Mewen and Mewie are variations OF that pokemon’s name. So I don’t know why the fuck he’s getting all BUTTHURT over it.

Part 1:

Part 2:


The Legend of Mewen Brown – Chronicals of Truth Podcast!

This is the podcast that you have been waiting for! It contains the discussion and interview I had with Douglas over skype, and how willing we were to spill the beans in much greater detail, about the experience, drama, harassment, slandering, threats, bullying and stalking that mewen/mewie/mew brown did to us. There is lots to listen to and absorb/take in, it might be quite disturbing to viewers, it might just make you laugh your asses off, you might even throw up, or close the window, or stop the player, or destroy your own computer too, but it all depends on the person listening to it. There is allot of seriousness involved, maybe a bit of repetitiveness, but we did get it done. Enjoy.

Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:

Part 4:

Part 5:

Part 6:

 

There are quite possibly more people that had the same or similar experiences, and if they truly wish to talk about it on skype, or to post in the comments their experiences/stories, they are welcome to do so. Lastly, from here on in, none of it will ever be deleted off of the internet. Any attempts, threats, intimidation to remove this will violate one’s freedom of speech, expression and thought. It will also cause it to be reposted repeatedly, so it doesn’t get removed. It is everybody’s right to express themselves, including speaking out and telling the stories of what they experienced too.
