    That's a relatively small ship...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freewinds
    The Freewinds is the exclusive training center for OT VIII (Operating Thetan Level 8), the highest level of Scientology and the last of the published OT levels. Members of the Church of Scientology who have reached the highest levels must receive their training on the Freewinds, as the Church does not deliver this service anywhere else.[18]
    Besides the OT VIII training, the Freewinds is used for delivering lower-level classes and auditing services. She is also used as a recreational vessel for Scientologists, including celebrities such as Tom Cruise.[citation needed] The ship hosts a "Freewinds Maiden Voyage" each July as an "OT Summit" for high-ranking Scientologists at which Scientology accomplishments and plans for the future are publicly celebrated.[19]
    A significant portion of the ship is given over to its use as a religious retreat for Scientologists. As well as various course rooms and a library of L. Ron Hubbard books, the Freewinds has areas given over to the Religious Technology Center, Sea Org and International Association of Scientologists. As is common practice in other Scientology organizations, the ship also has an "LRH Office" symbolically set aside for L. Ron Hubbard's use.

    That looks like one of those Mediterranean cruise ships that capsize all of the time.

    I wonder if this will affect the new Mission Impossible movie. Lord knows he's done enough the past few years to fuck up whatever good name they might've had.

    Why can't you Muslims go after the Scientology Regime for awhile? We will send you free goat cookies if you do.

    Is Scientology really that much more absurd, concept-wise than nearly every other religion? I mean sure, it probably makes just as much sense to believe in comic book characters, but really... if you just add a few thousand years, how much difference are we really looking at?

    Well, to be fair, the founders of most other religions weren't quoted saying things like...

    "You don't get rich writing science fiction. If you want to get rich, you start a religion."

    Seriously. People are alive that have heard the guy admit the whole thing was a fraud. Come back in 2000 years if you want to make the claim that they're all the same.

    COS used to be a lot scarier back when their 'Fair Game' was up and running full speed. The last good thing I think Anonymous did was bring a lot of shit to light about it being a cult.
