The Cat Story


The cat thread is quite hilarious. Bob Minton finds a dead cat on his doorstep. This is enough for critics to launch in a series of unfounded accusations and paranoid rant against the CoS.


"Believe it or not, most mysterious coincidences are well within the normal probability ranges. How hard is it for someone who is bigoted towards a class of people (you know.. clams, evil cultists, death cult, criminal cult... bigotry) to jump to the conclusion they're being harassed when something fairly routine happens. The cat thing had me laughing so hard I woke my kid up. For Christ's Sake! There are about 900 million cats in America. How hard is it to believe you may occasionally see a dead one? Yes. Even on your porch. Only on ARS would this be reported as harassment, seconded and then generate a long argumentative thread. And you claim you believe what you read here?" (Wolf)

 

Here is the original "dead cat" message :

My wife arrived at our house in NH a few moments ago to find a dead, but otherwise healthy looking, cat on our doorstep.

Who do you suppose deposited this cat there?

Bob Minton

 

And here is the "critical" reaction of the a.r.s crowd, happily jumping to conclusions without a shred of evidence :

Disgusting cult. Thank god there's a public forum so people don't feel alone when this sort of harassment takes place. Have we all properly thanked Bob's wife for tolerating his unusual hobby? I can't imagine many spouses would take this calmly, and I hope your family is all right, Bob. I can't be sure I would continue work against Scientology if I had kids at home to think about.

This is an old Scientology trick. Long before I found ARS I have had heard this was an old Scientology 'calling card'. Yes, they did it again. And it won't be the last time. Slimey bastards. Well you just made sure I will be here for 1998.

I owe you bastards one. And interest.

Dead dogs, dead cats. What's next ? Co$, (assuming it was them) placing horse heads in critic's beds ? Dead hamsters stuffed into mailboxes ? Sigh...classical terroristic tactics.

You know, you might want to report this to rec.pets.cats. I'm sure there are a bunch of people there who'd go ballistic over the clams killing cats to intimidate critics.

Mind you, I'm no cat-lover (I'm *very* allergic to the things), but this kind of thing is pretty fucking juvenile.

Note: the above is just what critics did, trying to stir more Scientology hatred through other newsgroups.

The message of the dead cat thrown on Bob Minton's doorstep by the punk/thug cowards of Dept 20 is quite clear, now that Bob has helped my wife and I reestablish our animal sanctuary. The tactic is how Scientology's criminal section operates: by threat, intimidation, harassment and breaking the law to do it. That is why Dept 20 has been raided so many times around the world and why Dept 20 executives have gone to jail.

[Huge snip of demonization against the CoS]

That is why a dead cat was thrown on Bob Minton's doorstep.

A few years ago, no one would have known about it. But now the world does.

Thanks to people like Bob, it is only a matter of time and the amount of time left has been greatly shortened.

Probably another example of $scios "means to an end". Their mentality is , it doesn't matter what we do along the way as long as we "clear" the plant, "even if that means killing every man women, child and cat>

As well, that principle of exposed dying pets or other corpses is very much used by maffias, another type of pseudo-religious bodies.

Bob,

I sincerely hope that your security cameras were rolling. Maybe the cat "delivery service" person will also show up on videos of the picketing or leaflet dispersal while you were in Clearwater.

Blam! Blam! Operation Foot Bullet again!

This latest incident will be another nail in the criminal RICO coffin.

I have been reading many of the aricles on here. The one about the cat really struck a chord. I have been asking people about your beliefs for a long time on here. It is starting to become clear to me that this is a very cold church. I always thought of it as very amazing to say the least and really wanted to learm more. I love animals so much,I have 3dogs and three cats.It disturbs me that hardly anyone took the time to say abusing animals is wrong. You seem like a very cold church and if someone could prove me wrong,I will listen with a open mind.

And weeks later, the shabby dead cat allegation became an a.r.s. "fact" :

They are more than happy to harm an animal in their idea of a 'just cause' - Swearinger's dog, the Young's cats, the Minton cat in question, etc.

This I find truly disgusting.

I have taken steps to distance myself from them slowly so as not to get any dead cats on my doorstep, even though in Canada, it would bring the arm of the CRMP (that's the Canadian Royal Mounted Police for...(equivalent of the FBI for you Yanks...)) to bear heavily on them.
