Scientology, Xenu and Tom Cruise Killing Oprah


Wikipedia’s entry on Xenu, who seemed to be the Stalin of galactic rulers.

In Scientology doctrine, Xenu is a galactic ruler who, 75 million years ago, brought billions of people to Earth, stacked them around volcanoes, and blew them up with hydrogen bombs. Their souls then clustered together and stuck to the bodies of the living, and continue to cause people problems today. These events are known to Scientologists as “Incident II,” and the traumatic memories associated with them as The Wall of Fire or the R6 implant. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, detailed the story in Operating Thetan level III (OT III) in 1967, famously warning that R6 was “calculated to kill (by pneumonia etc) anyone who attempts to solve it.” The Xenu story was the start of the use of the volcano as a common symbol of Scientology and Dianetics from 1968 to the present day.

On a completely unrelated note, here is a video from Waxy.org of Tom Cruise killing Oprah Winfrey. (opens to .mov)

L. Ron Hubbard’s Album


WFMU’s Beware of the Blog has songs you can download from L. Ron Howard’s album, The Road to Freedom performed by John Travolta, Leif Garrett, Frank Stallone and others. The last song is performed by L. Ron Hubbard himself. His singing is about as good as the story for Battlefield Earth.

Be warned though, I was jumping on my sofa and being interviewed by an invisible Oprah by the third track.

Fundie Pharmacists

U.S. doctors weigh in on morning-after pill denials

CHICAGO (Reuters) – The largest U.S. physicians group on Monday objected to some pharmacists’ conscience-driven refusal to sell the morning-after pill, and suggested doctors may fill the void by dispensing medications themselves.

Any pharmacist who objects on the basis of conscience to filling any prescription must make an “immediate referral to an appropriate alternative dispensing pharmacy without interference,” the resolution passed by delegates to the American Medical Association’s annual convention said.

Some pharmacists have filed lawsuits objecting to requirements that they fill all prescriptions. Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich issued such a directive earlier this year specifically about the morning-after pill, called Plan B.

The contraceptive prevents a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus, but opponents equate it to abortion.

A few pharmacists have refused to refer patients elsewhere, saying it still involves them in the process, and some have gone so far as to confiscate written prescriptions.

Why do these pharmacists still have jobs? Their job is to fill prescriptions, not decide what prescriptions their fucked up views allow to be filled. When will we get to the case about some new age phamarcist who refuses to fill a prescription for penicillin because they believe that magnet therapy is the way to go to treat strep throat?
