Leah Remini/ Scientology and similarity to TWI

Recommended Posts

in addition to Tom Cruise and John Travolta, along with Kristie Alley, I noticed that Greta Van Sustren also is a Scientologist, which surprised me. I wonder who Wierwille and Martindale tried to entice among Hollywood movie and TV stars. Any one know?

Thomas, what surprises me is why anyone would choose to give money to this worthless cult.

VPW had no pull in Hollywood.  LCM tired to target athletes since he played college football.  There were a couple pro NFL players involved if I recall.

Scientology spent some of the auditing billions on building Celebrity Centers.  Leah Remini shows clips of when she was in her 20's and at one of the Celebrity Centers.

Tony Collins and Irving Fryar. Also MLB player Tony Phillips.

Somebody who played for the New England Patriots.  IIRC, Tony Collins was the one.  Despite all the local leadership objecting (and lcm documented this himself), TC was given a WOW pin despite never having gone WOW nor even gone witnessing door-to-door.  They all knew 'respect of persons" when they saw it. 

Baseball player Tony Phillips and hockey player Jim Schoenfeld also. Plus, Paula Smith, tennis player.

Irving Fryar also played for the NE Patriots but that wasn't the only team he was on during his NFL career.

I remember VPW talking about Gunnison being a place for celebrities to hang out and how he was going to have a restaurant built that went over the water where you could see the river through a glass floor.  Really I recall he said that.

My father donated some of his prize trophies to Gunnison when we went into the corps. My favorite was this 16 point elk that he received a plaque for and was mounted in our living room for my entire life until the family corps. As was a beautiful ram. To this day it hangs at Gunnison and I don't even think they gave him credit by putting his name below it or anything. I believe you'd have to remove it from the wall to see his name. It wasn't enough for them to take the love out of our family, they brainwashed my parents into giving them a lot of nice things we had over the years.

Begulied, that stinks!  TWI at the very least, should give your father credit, for his contributions.

@Grace Valerie Claire Yea it does. Just another example of stripping away individuality and personal possessions in the same stroke. If anyone ever gets the chance to see it (unlikely lmao) it used to hand on the second floor on the wall nearest the entrance and opposite the mountain/hill.

I remember seeing an ad in the Way Mag saying "Remember The Way in Your Will". Even then in my Waybrain I was shocked.

omg, the extreme paddling of young children and making them work as adults at the camps, worse than TWI's HQ, Emporia, Rome City, and Gunnison combined.:CUSSING:
