I am officially a Suppressive Person!

July 14, 2008, 8:28 PM

I felt so honored today when I got home after work and found a letter at my door. I took a look at it. The letter was dated July 9, 2008, and was from the law firm of Johnson, Pope, Bokor, Ruppel & Burns. The letter indicated that their firm “has been retained by the Church of Scientology International in connection with a series of terrorist threats against Church leaders and parishioners made by an internet group known as ‘Anonymous’.”

My favorite part is near the end:

We are sending you this letter because we have reason to believe that you are associated with and have been assisting Anonymous in its campaign against the Church. In particular you were identified as participating in “Anonymous” activities against the Church in Washington, DC on June 14, 2008.

The purpose of this letter is to place you on notice that the activities of Anonymous in inciting violence against the Church and its members and engaging in acts of terrorism […] violate State and Federal law. We demand that you immediately cease all such activities. Should your organization continue inciting and/or engaging in violent acts against the Church or its members, we are prepared to take any and all steps necessary to protect our client, including referring the names of persons to State and Federal authorities.

And it’s signed by F. Wallace Pope, Jr. Your Dianetics dollars at work. I believe that Scientology is not happy that we’re exercising our right to free speech and preventing them from making scads of money off of the gullible.

So what is this letter? A mark of honor. We are doing something right. It completely validates Project Chanology, which is Anonymous’s campaign against Scientology. Why does it validate it? I believe it’s because the Scilons are hearing us loud and clear, and they don’t like what they’re hearing. And so rather than actually address our concerns directly, they have decided to take the low route and resort to harrassment. Nothing in the letter directly relates to me, aside from (correctly) indicating that I participated in “Operation Sea Arrrgh” outside the Founding Org on June 14. And that’s no shocking revelation to find out that they knew that. After all, I told you that I went back on June 24, according to records in the Journal. So yeah, big secret. It must have taken a WHOLE LOT of digging to turn that one up, heh heh heh. I’m surprised they didn’t bring up any of the other raids that I’ve participated in. After all, I’ve been to AnonyCon, Operation Reconnect, Operation Fail Game, Operation Sea Arrrgh, and Spy vs. Sci, plus a few flash raids.

So all in all, am I worried about what Scientology will do? No. Can they do anything about my activities? Not bloody likely. Will they sue me? I think not. Scientology is trying to use their Fair Game policy against me, and if this is the best they can do, they need to go find Xenu and get him to bring some thetans with better legal talent in his DC-8s the next time he comes by.

And what did I do with the letter? Take a look:

The letter from Scientology's attorneys, hung in the kitchen over the garbage can.

Yep! I framed it, and hung it up in the kitchen, right over the garbage can. Right in the place of honor, after all. My mother’s coming to visit tomorrow, and I’ve already promised her she’ll get to see it.

And you know, now that I’m a confirmed Suppressive Person, I might as well advertise it. I should get one of these Suppressive Person stickers or something.

Either way, the Scilons have honored me, as I am enough of a pain in the Church of Scientology’s butt to be sent a threatening letter. I am a Suppressive Person, after all…

Web site: Operation Clambake, undressing the Church of Scientology since 1996.

Song: RICKROLL'D! After all, we're never gonna give them up or let them down...

Quote: And what's funny is that I was talking just last week about what I would do if I got a nasty letter from Scientology. And what do you know - I got one! Score!
