“If the squirrels complain about a program, that’s the one to follow!” LRH
Unable to contain the awareness on the part of some of his personality cult members that the Church of Scientology does great works, Marty Rathbun once again has to reach hard to invalidate anything that actually helps people.
But from long exposure to his mean-spiritedness, we know that Rathbun will attack anything resembling reach on the part of Scientology. It clearly scares him to death.
So now, he’s trying to convince even his own choir that genuine help is bad, and that social betterment isn’t to be trusted.
“As any science which betters people gathers unto itself considerable numbers of people who can dramatize only how bad it is over there, we get a great deal of crank, squirrel, neurotic and psychotic communication flow… We call this an entheta line simply because people use Scientology to explain to others how bad it all is over there…We even have publications which pretend to be part of Dianetics and Scientology which couldn’t possibly print anything but bad news. That there is not one word of truth in all this news so far detected by the most searching inspection here, that these rumors and perjuries and falsehoods haven’t even the dignity of a background in fact, does not stay their passage.” LRH
Rathbun complains that non-Scientologists are happy to celebrate the Church’s good works and community outreaches, and tries to present it as an outpoint. If it were the other way around – if only Scientologists appeared in public touting our good works – Rathbun would present that as an outpoint, you can be sure. But this heads-I-win, tails-you-lose approach to criticism is nothing new for Rathbun or his lapdog Rinder; you can see it daily in their bitter whining from the sidelines.
