- The Orthodox church in Greece has condemned Scientology. It pursued a long campaign to prevent Scientology from establishing a presence as a religious organization. In the process, OSA attempted to defame and destroy Greek Orthodox priest and cult fighter Father Antonios Alevizopoulos.
American Greek Orthodox Bishop Maximos Aghiorgoussis of Pittsburgh. has also pointed to the psychological dangers of Scientology auditing (counseling) and its dealings with the occult.
Well, Representative Gus Bilirakis. Damage has been done.Tarpon Springs is a community of 35,000 and is known for its substantial Greek community. Bilirakis is a member of St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral.
Last night I met with my friend, a Greek, in a wealthy and influential Greek family in the Orthodox church of Tarpon Springs where you are from and a member of the church. My friend was appalled at the info I had about your dealings with the cult. Conversation something like:
Me:"By the way, do you know Gus Bilirakis?"
Greek:"Gus? Oh yea, of course! He's great, my dad knows him really well."
Me:"You know he supports Scientology?" This is where I show my friend dox.
Greek:"WTF. I can't vote for him now. I gotta tell my dad this."
Me:"Will this news not go over well at church this weekend?"
Greek:"No it won't. Greeks hate Scientology."
Pick your friends better, sir. And I'd advise no more letters supporting the cult to other countries if you want to keep office. Have a good one.
This was actually confirmed by the Church of Scientology in its attack on the four courageous defectors. Speaking of Scientology lawyer Monique Yingling and spokesman Tommy Davis, the St. Petersburg times writes:
Yingling and Davis said the church doesn't relish using documents from ethics files. But after the four defectors spoke out against Miscavige, the lawyer and spokesman said they had no choice.
You can watch The Times video of Tommy Davis' response here. It is a vehement rant in which he repeatedly calls Marty Rathbun psychotic.
