Now that their golden couple has called it quits, the Church of
Scientology is pulling all stops to keep everyone from questioning their
The church recently sent out an email instructing members on how to "stand up for their religion" by commanding them to push sites like Microsoft and Google to take down anti-Scientology content.
Unfortunately, someone hit the "send all" button instead of filtering the recipients, which explains how it landed in Marty Rathbun's inbox. A former Scientologist , Rathbun who now blogs against the religion decided to share the email's contents which were distributed from the Office of Special Affairs (described as the "propaganda arm" of the church), highlights are in bold:

Dear Razz Line members,
I am not a big fan of media, but you may have glanced the news of the split between TC and Holmes and all the speculations around. While this is a personal matter, when people start to bring our religion into the middle and a bunch of uninformed people start to spread false datum, rumors and defame our religion it became a matter that does affect my Dynamics and I believe that affects yours as well.
Well, I am not somebody that I am going to simply stand and watch a bunch of uninformed people putting my religion under the carpet. So here is a simple hatting on how you can causative fight back and at the same time stand up and defend our religion on the internet.
Microsoft or Google or any of these big online company require that each person when create an account with them follow a Code of Conduct when they are on the internet. If there are abuse of such Code of Conduct, those website do actually invite you to report the matter to the Moderator — in other word, write the matter to Ethics.
These is where things can be turn around!
Here is a simple example on how to fight back abuse of the Code of Conduct that is happening within the Microsoft (MSN) website:
1. One of the Code of Conduct that Microsoft impose is to not “threatens, defames, degrades… an individual or group of individuals for any reason; including on the basis of age, gender, disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, race, religion; or incites or encourages anyone else to do so..”
So is you go to MSN Now – What’s Trending? you will see different articles about TC and Holmes split. The articles then ask for comment…. (Note: if the article does not show up anymore on the first page, go to the search bar and type ‘Tom Cruise Divorce’… or a similar search. You want to go where the comment section is)
On each comment if you place your mouse over it,it show up on the bottom right a tag that say ‘REPORT’.
2. Click the “Report” Tag and a small window show up. Click the tab “Send Note to Moderator”
3. Once you do that a new window show up and you can send a text of 100 character. You can write something like ‘Violate Your Code of Conduct’. “defames or degrades a group for any reason including on the basis of religion.”
The above exact comment it fit.
4. Read the comment from people and pick the ones that fit the violation of the Code of Conduct.
5. Report the Violation!! That’s it!! You are done.
6. Now rinse and repeat the same process from step 2 to 5..
Once you got the hang of it it get pretty fast and in one hour you can report of lots of these nonsense comment!
If is only one person (me) reporting these issues, the Moderator at Microsoft will not take the comment off. if you start to have 10 or 20 people reporting it, they are going to take this down.
LRH give an exact quote on the Price of Freedom that you find on Tape 1 – Transcript page 32 – The Genus of Dianetics and Scientology – ANATOMY OF THE HUMAN MIND CONGRESS. The same quote appear also in the Tech Dictionary under the Price of Freedom.
Ok – there you have it!! This simple hatting is something that you can use now for this or similar situations that may happen in the future.
Over to you! Best Daniel
