You know what happens to him if they catch up to him, don't you...

"Please...(gasp)...kill me..."
"What's that Mr Henson? You'd like yet another screening of Battlefeild Earth? Well, that's 46 times in a row! Brother Cruise, cue our friend here another showing of the Masterwork."

(sounds of man gagging on own vomit)

Just what is "interferring with a religion" and why is it a crime?

Because Xenu says so. Now get back around the volcanoes, because the nukes are about to blow and we all have to have our souls reduced to fragments that reincarnate as clams. (If you're wondering what in the name of John Travolta's bad judgement I'm talking about, Operation Clambake will make it all clear.)

I often find him too harsh, but I agree with Mr Cranky when it comes to Battlefield Earth:The only thing I can figure out is that the Church of Scientology decided that they wanted to ensure nobody else joined up. This movie is like watching the Pope accidentally catch on fire while giving Easter Mass. If that's not a time to rethink your spiritual choices, what is?

If you ever get a chance and you aren't the type to brainwash easily, take a day and head to your nearest Scientology offices. Take the test. Watch the movie. It's a real trip. For that matter, if you want to hear how Hubbard bilked the creator of the solid-fuel rocket booster out of all his money, go here.

Parsons' girlfriend soon transferred her affection to Hubbard. With her, Hubbard and Parsons formed a business partnership, as a consequence of which Parsons lost most of his money to Hubbard. However, before Hubbard ran away with the loot, he and Parsons participated in magical rituals which have received great attention among contemporary practitioners.

Pretty much says it all for me.
