Hi Mark! This is a terrific show! So glad you posted about it on alt.religion.scientology!
Keep up the good work on helping expose the truth about the Cult of Scientology :)

Belgium...you gotta love the feeble defense recently issued by the cult spokesclams. They whine about a "witch hunt." So, when do we break out the stake and kindling? Should I issue pitchforks and torches to the peasantry? While it's true that Scientology can change a human being into an unthinking drone, it's not magic. It's fraud, coercion, and intimidation.
Scientology spokesclam Fabio Amicarelli offers a curious defence. He questions why this investigation has taken a decade before charges are filed. He also points out that nobody has been notified or arrested. Obviously he has no understanding of the judicial system. Belgium has collected a huge amount of evidence relating to fraudulent practices, practicing medicine without license and other offenses.
Amicarelli obviously doesn't understand the world's attitude toward his cult, either.
"I travel all over and Scientology is accepted," said Amicarelli, an Italian. "Here in Belgium it is not understood. The attitudes are totally last century."
Oh, no. The attitude is totally next century, a time when hiding behind the cloak of religion won't protect abusive organizations from lawsuits.
They're hated in Hollywood and Clearwater. Wearing a 'Scientology Kills' t-shirt anywhere will result in people sharing their horror stories with you. Scientology is universally despised, much to the surprise of true believers, who are told that being a Scientologist gains you instant respect.
That explains why they spawn so many front groups that claim not to be associated with Scientology. What are they ashamed of?

Considering that Scientologists' believe the human race "evolved" from space aliens don't you think prosecutors should reopen Project Blue Book? There may be some useful criminal evidence in there about Scientology's founder .
