I'm sure some of you are sick of hearing about Scientology, but this is very interesting.

Shawn Lonsdale, known for his personal endeavor against the so-called "church," was found dead on Saturday in what is being called an apparent suicide. What is extremely fishy about the whole thing is they say he killed himself by running a hose from his car into his house and pumping in the exhaust. It just seems like if you're going to kill yourself by carbon monoxide poisoning, you are going to take the quickest route and just sit in the garage. I'm not normally one to get all drawn up in conspiracy theories, but there's no doubt the Co$ played a part in it. *removes tin-foil hat*

Anyway, here is the article. Make your own speculations.

"Scourge of Scientology dies in apparent suicide"

wtf? He took the time to run a hose from his car into his house? Why not just do something simpler, like, shooting yourself?

Didn't Brad Delp from Boston kill himself in a similar fashion??

Anyways, either way it's pretty messed up

Now, I don't know about Scientology as a religion.

I doubt alot of people that bash it do either.

I do know it is often called corrupt, though.

Obviously Scientology killed him.

Staging a suicide is the oldest way of killing someone and making it not suspicious. But considering this guy had his life in order and "committed suicide" in such a cumbersome and unrealistic way, Scientology must have hired some cheap, amateur hitmen to do it.

We'll see what happens. It could go either way...from the way this article sounds, it didn't look like he was "all there," but in the same vein, I seriously doubt that a guy so dedicated to this cause would just give it up and kill himself one day.

It's about a 75 billion year old alien overlord and everybody has 1000 souls and the rituals they do are supposed to remove some of them and once they remove them all except your true soul you will be super powerful and ****.

Also when L. Ron Hubbard died the church released a statment that said that he didn't really die(people that completed all the rituals ad are truly "enlightened" are supposed to be immortal) , he was just sick of people bashing his church so his soul traveled to another planet to continue researching dianetics and his other wacky ****.

So, yeah, their all a bunch of wackos.

Pretty simplified, but true. This process of removing the bad souls (called "thetans") is called 'auditing' and at the end of the auditing process, you'll have paid the church around $350,000.

You can see why the church is fucking loaded with cash.

Yeah, I took the time to read most of their "beliefs" just didn't want to be assed to write it all out.

And i heard it costs something along the lines of $10,000 US before the church will even accept you as a member.

You fool, now they can tap into your brain!

I'm not much for conspiracy theories but would I be surprised? No, that church is so stupid it really wouldn't surprise me.

You are correct sir. It basically is just playing off the fact that the church is only in it for profit.

I think it's pretty obvious that this guy PURPOSELY killed himself in a questionable manner that would create controversy for the Church of Scientology. It's a trap, you see!

No, I'm just kidding. The church probably did it.
