A group linked to the Church of Scientology is mounting an emergency campaign to “flood Mumbai” with hundreds of thousands of booklets by L Ron Hubbard in order to spread its message to residents traumatised by the terror attacks.

As reports, Scientologists have sent out an email which says: “Flood Mumbai with TWTH [Hubbard's The Way to Happiness] booklets! This will help calm down the area! … 100,000 booklets can be printed in India. We need to raise £21,000 on an immediate basis to make up the full amount.” The operation is being mounted by ABLE,  the Association for Better Living and Education, which is officially described as “Scientology-related”.

Wow … aliens!
If I’d been one of those people in Mumbai I def. would not have a need for those books, although they might be worth a laugh. They probably need a lot of stuff but not those books (most books are not first thing you would want to give them although I’m not really well informed about the Mumbai issues/situation.

Trying to push you phoney beleif system on a population that is vunerable due to a horrific act like that is unspeakably viscious. Shame on them.

Actually I can see how those books could be very practical after a terrorist attack in a hotel. For one thing you can use them as toilet paper, if the supply of that has been cut.
You could pulp them into paper Mache for emergency structural repair.
If you have to jump from a high window, they may cushion the fall. Just don’t bother to read them, because that’s 8 hours of your life you’ll never get back.

What makes me sick is that whenever Co$ decide to have fundraisers to send books here, there and everywhere, they still have to pay the licensing fees for using Hubbard’s texts. They’re trying to get Scientologists to donate money, a percentage of which goes straight into the financial labyrinth. That would be like Children in Need raising money to buy poor kids in hot countries copies of The Floral Dance.

“The Way To Happiness”?

Are the Scientologists behind all those ads on TV at the moment, then?

(Sorry if I seem to be asking the obvious – those ads have been everywhere lately. I wondered what was going on).

The $cientology organization will use any disaster to fill its pockets, but then thats no real different than some governments or large multinational companies at times. And they will make up some claim later in the year, that because of their dropping of 100,000 ‘books’ the local tone level was raised a small percentage point, which they will hold a large ceremony for which will cost each person attending huge amounts of money. But its all for the organization that does such wonderful things like sue the pants off anyone who disagrees with them.

I don’t like that :(
I am totally open to alien life forms but ramming a bunch of text book ideals on people is not good.
Though if you think about it in the terms of a board game the Scientologists are just clocking up more points for their cause.
I don’t know, are they right or wrong, i guess every things open to try to get heard even if its crap! Not saying Scientology is ;) just saying anything goes then you get a bunch of bum holes moaning about it! :) xXxPEACExXx Hippy at heart lol

FEATURED Infamous Brochure

Infamous Brochure
I came to see the Infamous tour in Southampton (April 11). Derren is my biggest hero, and I found myself incredibly lucky enough to be up on stage with him. Derren was as genuine and charming as I'd always hoped (which proved a contrast to my nervous and shaky demeanour). He is a brilliant showman and an all-round pleasure to watch. The show was sensationally mind-blowing - I'll be sure that I never miss another. Thank you Derren, for everything that you do. Sorry I was so shaky! Grace

Derren Brown, For my daughter's birthday gift in November of 2013, I gave her a ticket to your show. For Christmas, I gave her a round trip ticket to London from Pensacola, Florida, our home. On my birthday, I flew from the Middle East, where I'm teaching English, to join her. On the 25th of March, you gave us your best. It was the highlight of our First English Spring Tour. No matter how far apart we are in the world or mindset, we both agree...we have no idea how you do it! And we like it that way.

I saw Derren at Leeds on 25th and I am still - 4 days on - utterly blown away by his incredible talent and incredible show! I have never ever had the pleasure of seeing him live before, but I will never miss an opportunity again. Someone as talented as Derren Brown is a MUST SEE. He's mesmerising, spellbinding, inspiring, jaw droppingly amazing. This experience is something I will take away with me forever and a day! Thank you SO much for bringing this show to Leeds! But goin forward, if travel roun te country to see you - you are THAT good :)
