Scientology goes Full Tim and Eric on 'Going Clear' documentary

Scientology_2460585b

The Church of Scientology is so scared of 'Going Clear,' the new HBO documentary by Gibney and Wright, they have a whole website devoted to attack documentaries of their own.

Here's where it gets really interesting: all of their mini docs eventually turn into weird Tim & Eric style informercials. Pure weird Brule.

This one on Paul Haggis is so brutal and horrible.

Lots more here at the Church's "Freedom Media & Ethics" YouTube channel.

  1. As I understand, a lot of Scientology's culture is based on an "Us vs Them" rhetoric. For example, their "evil psychologists" theme, specifically targeted to cut off vulnerable cultists from the very people who can best help them and pull them away from the cult.

    So really, it's no surprise that they'd react like this.

  4. Gotta love Scientology dismissing someone as the leader of a "small, failed cult." If only it had been large and successful, then they could have seen eye to eye.

    Really did he name a terrorist group?

    Didn't realize crashing planes into buildings was the level need to compare a group to white supremacists or terrorists.

    There are bunch of criminals who have done truly massively horrible things on a large organized scale.


    I mean seriously the list of truly evil shit they do is endless.
