The NY Post has a great followup piece to the devastation that was wrought by Nightline on The Church Of Scientology last week. I know I linked to ABC yesterday and in one of the video segments you see Tommy Davis walking off the set in a huff. That was when Martin Bashir asked Tommy about the whole Xenu thing. Instead of Tommy taking the questions like a man and spinning them into something palatable he chose to get up and walk off the set. You can tell the guy is like a child. He must be the biggest a-hole in the world because he looks like one when he is trying to lie and do his PR thing and I would hate to ever have to work for him or be near him. He seems to exude evil.
Anyway, I'm guessing that perhaps Tommy got yelled at by David Miscavige or perhaps by his mother because he seems like the biggest momma's boy on the planet. He probably got yelled at for walking off the set and not spinning the Church's position. So, on Thursday night about 45 minutes before the piece is set to air, Tommy shows up at ABC headquarters in New York and asks to see Martin and the producers of the show. He wanted Thursday and Friday's segments both killed. Seriously? Did he really think they would say, "umm, you know what Tommy, that is exactly what we were thinking of doing because we would like to talk to each other and show shadow puppets for the next two episodes of our show."
Tommy was told no and hell no and then was asked by security to leave the premises. It's kind of like when Anonymous gets chased from Scientology areas but with a happy ending. Maybe Tommy will have to go work at SeaOrg for awhile for 18 hours a day and no pay and no mommy to give him hugs and kisses every night after work.
Thanks to everyone who sent me links to the various articles from around Europe which heralded the fact that in France a court there convicted the Church of fraud, but did stop just short of banning the group entirely. Oh, they will. The Church was fined almost $1M and of course the Church says it will all be thrown out on appeal. Uh huh. Good luck you a-holes.
