Ex-Scientology lawsuits reveal elite Sea Org group
http://news.yahoo.com/s/a...s/us_scientology_lawsuits
Quote
SAN JACINTO, Calif. At the edge of arid foothills far outside Los Angeles, hundreds of Scientology followers live on a gated, 500-acre campus and work long hours for almost no pay reproducing the works of founder L. Ron Hubbard and creating the church's teaching and promotional materials.

The church says its 5,000 so-called Sea Organization members are religious devotees akin to monks who are exempt from wage requirements and overtime. But two lawsuits filed by two former Sea Org members, as they are known, allege the workers are little more than slave laborers, forced to work 100-hour weeks for pennies and threatened with manual labor if they cause trouble.
...
...
The members are Scientology's most devoted followers: they sign a billion-year pledge, vow not to have children and live and work communally.
...
...
"These folks are working for a year or two or three in a row on an hour or two of sleep a night. They're zombies," Van Sickle said. "If people had some money in their pockets or a good night's sleep, they probably wouldn't stick around."
...
...
Inside, some 400 Sea Org members live in hotel-like dorms modeled on Scottish highland architecture and eat in a log cabin-style cafeteria that features super-sized bottles of multivitamins on each table. The grounds include a golf course, a large lake and a network of paths.
...
(more...)

The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first, the love of soft living and the get rich quick theory of life. -- Teddy Roosevelt

 Shocked  I didn't realize until I went back and read the dateline that I drove right by that joint when I went to San Diego.  No *feces*.

I take this back ass country winding mountain back road short cut.  Out in the middle of *fudge*in' nowhere I see this big set of gates and on each side in huge letters it says "PRIVATE".

So here's the thing.  It doesn't register right away with me because in P.S. you see that on every street and ever corner, the only difference is before "private" there is "Blabedy Blah Country Club".  As I'm driving by this place I'm thinking you're either super exclusive or you ain't got many members 'cause you are way the *fudge* out here.

Topic:  WTF?  And Billion years is an awfully long commitment.
