    I'm a bit "drunk" right now, so was only half listening. Also, a chick in the room wouldn't shut up about "her day", so I couldn't really hear ;)

    Brian Daniels of CCHR just did a short (5 mins at most) speech on how psychiatry "is ridiculous".

    /r/ Youtube rip of this so we can post it ITT

    Why are Channel 4 doing this ? they said it was someone about LRH's 100th bday anniversary?

    Op i had the same thought"why are they doing this".
    I hope they get critics in next week for balance,if not harpoons should be fired in complaint.

    Channel 4 are generally ok, unless Martin Durkin talks them into showing one of his fakeumentaries. As channels go they are far nearer to the Independent than the Daily Mail.

    I would offer an American translation but I don't think there is one.

    Current TV maybe - - Center Left

    Free Speech network - - left

    All the rest except Fox - - center right

    Fox - - Right

    Channel 4 = PBS?

    Daily Mail = Washington Times?

    Independent = yes we are lucky

    Martin Durkin = anyone who pretends they know about something and makes a documentary about it
  15. The BBC would have no time for this faggotry.

    Just one more reason why the Beeb rules.

    If you will go to the previous thread on this you will see they have had both pro and con speakers. Wish someone in the UK would get these up on YT....

    Perhaps I'm being niave, but I think it's good that Ch4 are letting the scilons spout their crap- many people have never heard of the CCHR and the fact that some cultie is spouting his ignorant prejudicial viewpoint about disorders that many of the population deal with every day is likely to make more people turn against the cult.

    Before the first Panorama episode ("scientology and me") shown over three years ago, I thought $cientology was a tiny cult in America and had no idea it wielded so much wealth and power worldwide.

    TL:DR Ignorant culties raise awareness of their ignorance!

    This video contains content from channel 4, who has blocked it in your
    country on copyright grounds.

    Im in Calif.
  21. CarltonBANKS Member

    yeah i k r! I'm just surprised I didn't hear about these clips sooner.

    Each and every one of these scilons is known to us.

    The Hannah Lycett video is misleading; there isn't a 'teen army' of scilons. Hannah is a rare scientology baby, born to culties Trish and Alistair Lycett.
  22. CarltonBANKS Member

    What is with all this country blocking FGTRY? Pisses me off. Um, is there a UK proxy you can use?

    Lizzy Calcioli = Neil Gaimain's sister

    according to Wikipedia, she is David Gaiman's daughter, Neil Gaiman's sister. (Neil Gaiman is a 'celebrity writer')

    In 1965, David and Sheila Gaiman co-founded a vitamin shop, G&G Foods. By 2005 the company had become a major local employer, with 80 employees and an annual turnover of over £4 million. The Gaimans were prominent figures in the local community and well known for their sponsorship of the local arts scene.[2] David was also a trustee of Greenfields School since its formation in the 1980s.[11]
    Gaiman had three children, a son and two daughters:[2] Neil Gaiman, the well-known fantasy author[12][13], Claire Edwards, head of Scientology Missions International,[14] and Lizzy Calcioli.[11]


    In the video, she says she has five children. We are only aware of three:

    The other two must be under 18, I guess. I'm sure they'll be in the London org, as soon as they're old enough.

    Speaking of the Calcioli family, have you seen their latest fail front:

    Calcioli Field Practice announces "The East Grinstead Happier Families Club"

    PROTIP: as soon as you see a sign saying something is a 'Life Improvement Centre', run the fuck away!

    astonished at channel 4 giving scientology air time
  31. Anonymous Member

    from June 2010

    Channel 4 has announced a series of commissions in Northern Ireland, including a major primetime deal with Waddell Media in Belfast.
    Channel 4’s Head of Specialist Factual Ralph Lee has commissioned a brand new religion and ethics strand to be delivered by Waddell,, a series of short films, in which a single speaker, filmed in a studio, will reflect on religious and ethical issues or aspects of their spiritual lives. Viewers will be confronted by big ideas and unconventional ways of addressing issues – from jokes and songs to recounting moving personal experiences. These shorts will challenge some traditional views, providing a platform for both scepticism and devout religious beliefs.
    The films will air after Channel 4 News every day, seven nights a week. The strand will also have a strong online presence on the website, overseen byCross Platform Commissioning Editor Adam Gee. Every film will be made available to view on this site (as well as on 4OD), as well as providing additional bonus video content. Over time, the strand and website will build up a resource of thinking and reflection on faith, in all its aspects, in modern Britain.
    The range of individuals appearing in the films will be as diverse as the views expressed - from the leaders of world religions and influential figures in the public eye to members of the public who will have the opportunity to speak candidly about their faith and beliefs and provide first-person testimony about their experiences.
    Many of the films will air in thematically-linked mini seasons - marking important religious events or providing swift reaction to issues in the news – providing an eclectic range of opinions on a single topic................

    ......................Waddell will deliver the TV aspects of, while Belfast digital agencies Johnston North and Atto will manage the cross-platform presence.
    Jannine Waddell, Managing Director of Waddell Media, said: “We are delighted to secure this high-value commission from Channel 4, which further cements the company’s reputation as a leading producer in the UK. I welcome the increased commitment Channel 4 has shown to the production sector in Northern Ireland.”
    Ralph Lee, Head of Specialist Factual, Channel 4, said: “Channel 4’s point of difference as a public service broadcaster lies in its ability to reflect the diversity of opinion in modern Britain. is an inspiring series of short films that provoke real thought about the nature of faith and religion today.”

    I think it's fine, they appear to be covering both sides, unless I'm missing something?

    I'm delighted with some of these clips, I've heard so much about these specific individuals, it's interesting to see them actually talk.
  34. underminer Member

    Agree - give 'em enough rope...

    Giving the cult airtime validates scientology and puts it forward as mainstream and acceptable.

  37. He wouldn't say the same thing if he was ever actually treated for it. Maybe there is no Chemical Test, or blood work diagnosis, but I know. I know the difference between being on medicine and not. Don't you tell me it doesn't exist.

    Scientologists lie. Scientologists are trained to lie from the first comms course onwards.

    Scientology is a dangerous and ridiculous criminal cult that hurts people. It should not be given air time or accepted at face value in any way by any media outlet.

    I know bro, I'm afflicted with ADHD.
  40. CarltonBANKS Member

    They are, but I can believe that they sincerely believe that ADHD isn't real. That fallacy isn't limited to scilons. It's ignorance.
