Why don’t you tell people that you are a Scientology and that the information is not fact, but your opinion?
My second question, again in relation to the quote above, is: If your goal is to answer questions neutrally, why do you not link to other sites with neutral information on the topic?
A comment on my “neutrality”, if something like this exists at all. As a Scientologist I have experience with Scientology and can talk about it, find out things and know where to look for answers if I don’t have them right there. If it’s an opinion I say “In my opinion”. If it’s a newspaper article I say “In the article of …”. And for a court document I say “In the decision by the blah court..”. There are plenty of sites about Scientology on the internet. If you want to find negative, one-sided information, well, that’s easy. Go to Clambake and get all confused, if you want. Go to Wikipedia which is swarmed by the same guys who put up negative websites and just a remote outlet for them and add some “reference” in there, if you like. Freedom of Speech! But I got some Freedom of Speech too, like anyone else. And I say, post, put online what I find out and what I think. And if I put my opinion you can see that it is my opinion, it’s not falsely declared as a “fact” or “everybody knows” type of statement. Test me.
I am a Scientologist. That has never been a secret. The facts are marked facts and opinion is marked opinion. Most if not all websites about Scientology on the internet represent the ideas and purposes of their creators. The official Scientology websites want to inform you about how the Church works and what Scientology is. If that is done well or not has nothing to do with it. All anti-Scientology websites are set up by one person, usually with an axe to grind against Scientology. None of them is strictly neutral. It is the beauty of the internet that you can find everything, fanatic data sources, moderate data sources, sources of vicious and false data, balanced data sources, it’s all there. And now it is your responsibility to inform yourself thoroughly and make up your own mind. I can only give you a new side of the story and be as open as possible. You decide and you eat it if your decision was wrong.
