Cuddly BBC Reporter John Sweeney

Recently a panorama story aired on the crazies in Scientology ( yes this is my belief they are nut jobs as well as it being a cult by the way crazzzziiiesss ! )

Anyway unfortunately Mr Sweeney , the investigating reporter, had a teeny tiny little outburst with one of the guys from " the cult" Now to be fair he did lose it ever so slightly but from what I have gathered he had also pretty much been followed 24/7 by the churchs hired goons....even into the bathroom.
It has been reported on the ABC news website and they have people commenting on it ( most saying that the sceintologists are crazies as well) . The below comment made me laugh out loud. I believe it is one of the funnier things I have read in a little while:

" I took a look at his verbal outburst. His was direct and forceful, but controlled. In some cities, that would be considered a hug. Not necessarily cuddly, but a hug none the less. "

I guess it is easy to sling around slurs like "cult" and "crazies". If you used the "N" word for black folks and a host of other offensive words for other ethic or religious minorities, people might use the term "ignorant bigot" in describing yourself. However as I have never met you, nor you me I won't prejudge you, though I find your characterization of Scientologists or any derrogatory genealized characterization of someone's religion or race offensive. I believe that this is what Scientologists found was the problem when they first met with John Sweeney and thus felt the only way that anyone would believe how they were being treated was to document it on film. If you care to find more facts you can watch the documentary prepared by the Scientologists who were involved with Mr. Sweeney. They used their own cameras and footage. It is enlightening and reveals how the media sometimes attempts to shape or negatively characterize a target group from the outset while purporting to be conducting an unbiased and fair "investigation". And it shows how, unless you document what such media is really up to, the public buys it to form a negative characterization of a whole group of individuals. You can find the documentary at or

I appriciate you dropping my little sight. But your intensity of response concerns me. Could it possibly be that you have a monomaniacal belief??

be careful of them as from what I have seen they are a very persistant group to say the least. I live near their world headquarters in Clearwater Florida.
