Because of various problems with Blogger, I've copied everything as of November 26, 2012 over to WordPress. The new location is Ask the Scientologist. I am not deleting this blog and will still accept comments and answer questions here too, but any new articles will appear at the WordPress location. I apologize if this causes any problems.

What's the deal with Anonymous and the bomb threat?

By now, you might have heard of, or seen, the video purporting to be from "Anonymous" that contains a bomb threat to the Church of Scientology.

Pretty nasty stuff, eh?

Whoever did that was evil.

Well, experts have examined the video and the method of its distribution and have determined that the video was almost certainly produced by ... the Church of Scientology.

The video was posted on youtube by "anonymousfacts". The Church of Scientology has admitted that they are anonymousfacts, but claim they didn't produce the video.

Hokaaaay ... then, where did it come from? It wasn't posted anywhere else. The official "Anonymous" sites repudiated the thing. It was first posted by the Church of Scientology themselves, on their youtube page. Any guesses as to who created the evil thing?

UPDATE:
Additional information has been posted on Glosslip about this. From that post:
... what they are saying is the Scientologists have what seems to be the original source of the video, rather than a copy obtained from the internet. You can draw your own conclusions ...

The Church of Scientology has staged bomb threats against themselves before in an attempt to frame a critic. See "Operation Freakout".

So, whoever created the bomb threat was evil, weren't they? Gee, making a bomb threat, even against yourself, is a crime, isn't it?

Ironically, the Church of Scientology's greatest enemy is, and always has been, the Church of Scientology.
