The Church of $$$cientology is buttmad over the new documentary, Going Clear

Pictured above is the director of the new Scientology documentary, Going Clear. His name, Alex Gibney, needs to be included in all your prayer circles for the forseeable future in case he suddenly goes 'missing' or 'disappears'.

The above plea stems from the following recent news: The Scilons have been filling in butthurt reports and sending them to all the film critics who have recently seen the documentary spilling the Xenu space-tea. Gibey interviewed many well known Scientology defectors, including director Paul Haggis, and Tom Cruise and David Miscavige are also portrayed in a negative light.

Said butthurt reports come in the form of an e-mail which includes the following:

The above article concerning Going Clear, Alex Gibney’s film, was posted without contacting the Church for comment. As a result, your article reflects the film which is filled with bald faced lies. I ask that you include a statement from the Church in your article. There is another side to the story which has to be told. Do not be the mouthpiece for Alex Gibney’s propaganda.

 While taking some time off from enslaving people and staking out potential beards for Tom Cruise, the Church also issued a statement about the documentary. Their spokesperson Karin Pouw said:

“The accusations made in the film are entirely false and alleged without ever asking the Church... Gibney’s sources are the usual collection of obsessive, disgruntled former Church members kicked out as long as 30 years ago for malfeasance, who have a documented history of making up lies about the Church for money.”

Apparently the Church also started an online campaign in a mission to discredit Gibney, and have started a Twitter account called Freedom Media Ethics. Because who knows better about freedom and ethics than a slave labour cult/Ponzi scheme disguised as a religion? Ahem.

Gibney's response was: “Anytime someone writes something — film criticism or social criticism — about Scientology, the Church of Scientology counter-attacks by smearing critics. But a careful investigation of the church’s claims will reveal that most of the misdeeds by critics (Rathbun, et al) were committed on behalf of the Church of Scientology! As you saw in the film, these people are now repenting and the Church of Scientology wants to punish them for it.”
