    Scientology Has a Dirty Little Secret. And L. Ron Hubbard’s Great-Grandson Just Exposed It.

    "Jamie DeWolf seems like an ordinary man, except he has an extraordinary family tree. He’s the great-grandson of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. But he has a dirty little secret. At 1:47, I learn of the secret. At 3:43, I’m shocked how his family was treated. And at 7:39, I feel the irony of the God and the man."

    Yeah, that was excellent. I like him. I'd love to send that reading to a friend of mine as it lends a good perspective but it might be too soon. Just a few months ago he lost his brother. Actually he had lost his brother years ago to Scientology. The brother lived in Clearwater, FL, where the church is headquartered. My friend is a church-going Christian and hadn't spoken to his brother since their mom died. So on the one hand the founder's great grandkid might bring him some good perspective but I don't know if it would be too upsetting. Maybe I'll send that to some of our other friends first and see what they think.

    Interesting. L.Ron Hubbard was from Tilden, Nebraska, not all that far from where I live. People there acknowledge he was born there, but won't claim him. Don't know at what point he left, but Tildenites are not fond of him.

    Saw this a few months ago. It is VERY eye opening as to the CULT that Scientology really is.

    I think the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster has more credibility.

    What's particularly upsetting is the idea of using science fiction to bamboozle instead of to enlighten.

    So it is not just an affront to spirituality, but, more so, an insult to Star Trek!

    He's very talented, and that is a compelling performance, but I wonder how much of that is really true, and how much is just for show?

    There's also a little irony in what he's doing -- sort of anti-Scientology (not a bad thing) and probably hoping to make his own fortune from it.

    What part of his poetry struck you as untrue?

    If he really wanted to profit from his name, then instead of playing at a $10 cover charge club why wouldn't he simply lend his name back to his great grandfather's church.

    If he's not being honest to his audience, then why wouldn't he be dishonest about his loyalties and promote Scientology. Wouldn't they make him an officer? The church is where the money is.

    Or did you think that only fortune follows fame? His family was seriously damaged by his great grandfather. That reading didn't strike me as a guy trying to get his piece of the pie. That's a guy trying to find some peace of mind.

    I had to read about the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster which is satire.
