Paul Haggis Is Taunting Scientology

Thursday, January 6 by

Now that Paul Haggis has his Oscars and Russell Crowe on speed-dial, he won’t be needing Scientology anymore. The Crash director broke his ties to the religion when a San Diego branch showed support to Prop 8. Now he’s reading to sling mud.

Haggis is teaming up with writer Lawrence Wright to piss off John Travolta with the memoir, “The Heretic of Hollywood: Paul Haggis vs. The Church of Scientology.” The book takes aim at the real L. Ron Hubbard as well as current church head David Mascavige. Naturally, the church will fight against this book, as they are ruthless against dissenters. Oprah had better not even THINK about putting this in her book club. (Gawker)

    It was more than about a Prop 8 issue. The cult made his wife disconnect from her parents. He also read in the St. Pete Times that several high level members have seen the current leader, David Miscavige, beat the Xenu out of his staff.

    Haggis also claims he never used his Scientology connection to curry favors for jobs, but one wonders how subtle some of these connections can be.

    Movie Critic

    Movie flop director Haggis and a bankrupt ghost writer desperately trying to find a publisher for their new piece of imagination. Who cares?

    You care Louanne Lee. You’ve been hitting every blog that google listed as covering this story and leaving the same comment or some derivation. For those who want to play at home, take an expression of indifference, the word “flop”, the term “ghost writer”, and an insinuation that his allegations are untrue. Then, lazily throw them together and spam that sentence on every hit google news gives you for Paul Haggis. Then you’ll know what it’s like to work for Scientology’s online damage control team :-D

    I wouldn’t buy this book if it was the last book in the world. It would be like feeding my brain with tabolid news everyday.

    Gossip published as a book. Just because someone bought the story doesn’t mean it’s true.

    You’re a Office of Scientology Special Affairs internet patroller so maybe you can clear up what exactly this “gossip” is?

    Well you’re a Scientologist so you might not be able to pass the Scientology security check that asks,” Have you ever had a negative thought about L Ron Hubbard?” after reading it.

    I’m not getting paid anything. But I have a life and a profession. What do you have, my dear Louanne?

    “GivingYouALastGame” is a Scientology Office of Special Affairs internet handler who sometimes posts as Louanne or Louanna1980, she’s the only one employed by an organization. Scientology critics are just average,everyday people from all walks of life that want to stop Scientology from abusing people and destroying lives.

    “GivingYouALastGame” is the organization that robs people of their lives savings, we give away true knowledge for free.

    Critiquing the criminal nature of Scientology is Not a Hate crime. In Scientology’s case the criticism is well earned. the book will allow more the courage to leave the abusive cult.

    Paul Haggis left at just the right time,he dosen’t have to deal with the New Alliance Scientology and the Nation of Islam formed. What your seeing is Scientology in its last gasp moment aligning itself with a known Hate Group and its Leader Louis Farrakhan.
