Check out Jim Bakker's new pitch:

I would love to have these to pull out when people come over. I'd act really serious and tell them that a storm is brewing and those who don't prepare will die first...

I had an older co-worker who kept getting mail from Popoff's crew. She would ask me to look at it and tell her if it was legitimate. I got a prayer cloth, holy water, commemorative coins, prayer banners (little tiny flags) to leave under your pillow, and lots of other fun stuff.

I kept her from sending money to them, but she really, really wanted to believe.

popoff is in the mercola-level genius school of exploiting suggestible people for mad cash

You might be interested in ordering the free anti-psychiatry materials from the Scientologists: http://www.scientology.org/free-information/cchr-kit.html

They are a hoot to read and look like they were pretty expensive to produce so even if you just take them out of the mailbox and throw them in the garbage you are doing a good thing.

ETA: It looks like most of it it is on a DVD now. Back when I got it there were several glossy brochures/booklets.

the thing is is that if you accept anything from scientology or take any of their materials or even just stop in one of their places for a free e-reading or whatever, you now have a real bunny boiler cult stalking you.

not nearly as dangerous as it used to be now compared to what they used to do to people up into the early aughts, but still

I never heard from them again after I got my packet, which was several years ago.

It's the equivalent of turning off the lights and saying "Bloody Mary" three times.
