That creepy Super Bowl Scientology advert for sports fans and other sectarian egotists
DID you see the advert for the Church of Scientology aired during the Super Bowl? If you heard it, you’re probably reciting the mantras word for word in your sleep and at the bank. If you didn’t, here’s your next tattoo from the starriest self-improvement system in Tinsel Town – the one penned by Ron (that’s a name you can trust):
“To the curious, the inquisitive, the seekers of knowledge. To the ones who just want to know about life, about the universe, about yourself. Not cute questions, big questions, one’s that matter. To the rebels, the artists, the free thinkers and the innovators who care less about labels and more about truth. Who believe non-conformity’s more than a bumper sticker. That knowledge is more than words on a page. You’re young, you’re old, you’re powerful beyond measure and the fuel of that power is not magic or mysticism, but knowledge. The things you see, the things you feel, the things you know to be true. Sure, some will doubt you. Let them. Dare to think for yourself, to look for yourself, to make up your own mind. Because in the eternal debate for answers, the one thing that’s true is what’s true for you.”
Now go and let them stroke your ego and empty your wallet, sports fans.
PS- are sport fans more susceptible to being sold dreams of sectarian superiority ?
