Cult defenders in front of a camera

Next time we speak with UBF defenders, we should take a camera with us. It will be similarly ridiculous as this I guess.

This is the same treatment that ubf gives to anyone who protests at their events. The main difference is that ubf claims that God gave them the obligation to behave like that. Scientologists don't seem to believe in God, so these abusers did not mention God, so their reference points are kinda weird like 'why are you afraid of Hubbard?', that was pretty weird considering Hubbard is dead for 20 years now. Thank God.

The pattern of asking the same rhetorical question in a loud voice is totally power posturing. I just saw 'Goodfellas' and Robert DeNiro's character used this abusive, repetitive questioning to intimidate other gangsters in his group. Eventually, he killed all his fellow gangsters except Ray Liotta's character.

Compared to ubf, Scientology gets lots of negative media coverage. If you surf the web you can find quite a bit of news about Scientology's destructive practices such as ripping apart marriages and families. It is out there. Also Scientology has alot more activities, members, and money than ubf. Did you know that Scientology recently sponsored their own professional race car? They hope to attract race car fans, who are typically conservative Christians in the Bible Belt.

Scientology has many celebrities who are used to attract many ordinary people, who are then milked of all their savings and income, making Scientology extremely wealthy. They are cult superstars. In comparison, ubf has its biggest productions and nobody could care less. So what if a few thousand ubfins meet together and act like robots for a few days? ubf has not arrived, and will never arrive. PChang Bonn could possibly be a top leader at Scientology, he does quite well milking ubf. But I can't think of any others who could be a cult superstar.

yes, that's a dilemma. As long as a cult is small, it does not get enough press coverage, so it's easy for the cult to fool people. Once a cult is big enough, they get the press coverage, but on the other hand their recruiting efforts are more powerful and attractive, and they have more means and money to stop critics. So it somehow compensates. Therefore you probably cannot really stop cults.

Maybe ex Scientology are smarter and more professional than ex UBFers. And I noticed that many ex UBFers - if they are not confused or have mental issues anyway or believe they may not do anything "negative" - are so busy with solving their neglected family and job issues that they have no time to do anything against UBF. Many ex UBFers I know are just struggling with life because UBF destroyed their families, relationships, education and job career, and often also their ability to make decisions on their own.
