Scientologists peddling their bullshit in Haiti
:grr:

"Volunteer ministers" from the Church of Scientology are going to Haitian earthquake victims with severe injuries and touching them with the promise of healing their nervous systems. Calling the procedure "assist", they tell their subjects that they will touch them, and their damaged nerve connections will repair themselves. They claim to have saved people from having their limbs amputated by restoring feeling to the limbs.

1. How do the Scientologists expect to get any money
from their new Haitian converts?

5. Did anyone else but me notice that the Scientology "stars"
weren't at the Haiti telethon, or they kept themselves well-hidden? After all, who wouldn't want to see Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Jenna Elfman, or Kirstie Alley, huh?

:puke:

Seriously. I didn't see any of them. Wonder why, huh?

:rofl:

6. They're quacks and that's the last thing desperate people need
I wish someone would get the balls to throw them out.

No one else is doing it (peddling their 'religion').
