Why does Scientology seem untouchable?

Ever since I found the anti-Sci websites and the Anonymous website, I have been reading like crazy online through the forums as well as books written by ex-Scientologists. One issue that keeps tripping me up how much Scientology as a group seems untouchable to criticism and being challenged by ex-Scientologists. It just makes me so angry. Have you read about Scientology messing up with the FBI and Operation Snow White? Also about how Scientology has millions of dollars on hand for litigation purposes (for lawsuits) if ex-Scientologists sue Scientology about something. It seems as if Scientology hires the best of the best lawyers in the country to defend Scientology’s position and Scientology wins the case 99% of the time. How can we make Scientology and Scientologists wake up and publicly admit that they made mistakes and had abused people within the cult? I read a book recently that mentioned how law enforcement, police officers, lawyers, and the FBI as well as the IRS, I assume, are all afraid to go against Scientology and accuse them of doing something wrong, whether it is an individual or the cult as a whole.

This raises an interesting point. Unfortunately, our legal system responds to one thing: money. Whoever has the most money is the most likely to win. Scientology has a lot of money. Hubbard and Miscavige are con-men for a living. They aren’t stupid. They know that everyone and everything has a price.

As far as waking Scientologists up: well it’s impossible. If someone has faith in something that is not tangible, how are you going to prove to them that it doesn’t exist? Scientologists will insist you have a thetan and a reactive mind. Ask them to show one to you, and they can’t. Even so, they will insist that it is real and that it’s scientifically proven to exist.

How do you convince someone that something fake is fake?

    I get that $ciontology has as much money as god, but this pales into what the US government has (this is why there are so many safeguards against the state in common law legal systems).

    TBH I think there is more to it than just money, I think a lot of it comes down to the kind of people who want to work fro the government fancy a quiet life (or at least not a massively harrassed one) and there are plenty of other injusticies for them to fight. They probably tell themselves $cientology is a minor issue. And relative to, I dunno, 9/11, they’re just about correct, maybe….

      There’s actually a cognitive bias whereby someone sees the suffering of one victim as more important than the suffering of an entire group.

      Scientology knows this and thus their effort to keep faces like Kyle Brennan and Lisa McPherson and Stacy Dawn Murphy out of the media.

      As long as we are a faceless globule of “scientologists”, Scientology is protected. The movement against Scientology needs a face that people can really look at as a true victim of Scientology.
