Scientology And Terri Schiavo - Is There A Connection?Topics: Commentary
I've recently become more interested in what many believe to be an influence upon the Terri Schiavo murder by judicial fiat and scientology, and have previously written on the relationships and connections between various Pinellas county folks that beg for an investigation. Although a connection has long been suggested(not by me alone), no clarity exists on the matter, and there's certain to be many who will disagree, among them a close personal friend and fellow vet. However, the idea of there being a connection seems to be gathering a little steam, and we've received info about a few comments and posts on other sites. One of the more interesting comments was found at Title of Liberty. The entire comment follows; I've posted it here because I intend to follow-up on the matter with subsequent posts.
From an anonymous commentor via Title of Liberty: I've read some web sites which say that there is a connection between Terri's plight and the Scientologists.
I find these web sites to be "Michael Moorish" in the way that they draw diabolical conclusions by drawing loose connections together.
Particularly the following site:
(I think whoever does that site is well meaning and the site has a lot of good factual points... but it is too "trigger happy" and, therefore, will come across as irrational or nutty... which is a shame considering what is at stake here and how much of a Scientology connection there really is that should be investigated and revealed.)
However, on the other hand, I do think that there is some merit to the argument which need to be presented in a more no-nonsense way and backed up by mainstream sources.
(1) the scientologist's philosophy is very, very pro-euthanasia... in fact, to Nazi-like extremes.
(2) The scientologists probably have more political, legal, and economic power over Clearwater than the Mormons do over Salt Lake City. No kidding!
(3) The scientologists have long been in the habit of using the judiciary to accomplish their goals (policitical, economic, philosophical, etc).
Even if there is no specific grand conspiracy going on here, these facts alone indicate that there was probably some kind of "subliminal" influence of Scientology values on the judiciary in Clearwater regarding Terri's case.
But don't take my word for it... READ/WATCH the items below:
1981 60-Minutes report about Scientology just starting to move into Clearwater
Time Magazine Article
EXCERPT: "You can't separate Salt Lake City and the Mormons, and you can't separate Clearwater and Scientology," said Ray Cassano, a Scientologist whose 146-unit downtown condo tower will rise next door to the historic post office. "We may be a bigger presence here because Clearwater is a smaller city."
St. Petersburg Times article (inadvertently) describes similarities to
Terri in Lisa McPherson's mysterious death while in Scientologist's
L. Ron Hubbard own writings demonstrate an extremist Nazi-like
philosophy about dealing with disabled or retarded or unstable
individuals. Disturbing tactics are also revealed. There is an
unmistakable connection between these tactics proposed in Hubbard's
writings and the actual actions of the Scientologists as described in
the 60-minutes and Time magazine reports. No doubt about it. here, here, and ESPECIALLY... here.
Answers.com general article about Scientologist's extensive use (and abuse) of the legal system.
Testimony from a writer who was harassed by Scientologists. She wrote 1 book back in 1971 and was harassed by the Scientologist with character assassinations and frivolous lawsuits for decades. Ironically, this testimony was before a commission in Clearwater at the time that they were concerned about scientologists moving into their town.
(They have since accepted the scientologists because the "assimilation" is practically complete.)
Lastly, there is this fictional movie that is supposedly about cults in general (not necessarily scientology.. but there are some similarities and the creator of the movies was a former scientologist for 20 years. He is also a former Universal Studios V.P.) This movie is currently blocked from release by a Pinellas County judge... has been for quite a while. See here, here, here, here. (Is this normal? I thought this was a free country with freedom of speech?)
Given the Scientologist's proven track record of attacking the messenger (with vengeance), I'm too fearful to post my name...
Definitely, something is not right in Clearwater/Pinellas County.
Keep in mind that the links I've provided make extensive use of mainstream media sources and direct quotes from L. Ron Hubbard. Check these out and draw your own conclusions.
...someone needs to get this information to the public...
