Message from discussion Juggernaut
From: kes...@cyberpass.net (keshet)
I was fortunate (?) enough to see a copy of the program for
Scientology's New Year's Event. Pretty standard fare, with a
sports arena seating diagram, street map, list of tours
available, and schedule of events (including a Sunday Service
with the Reverend Heber Jentzsch and a concert with Isaac
Hayes & The Dukes of Soul).
On page 7, "Sign the Commitment to a Scientology Millennium",
the following appears:
We are on our way to clear a planet and free a world
population. With the advent of the year 2000, we intend
to create a true Scientology juggernaut and make this
-- LRH's postulate -- a firm reality.
To create that juggernaut you are invited to sign a
commitment pledging your adherence to the Code of a
Scientologist and the intention to making this new
millennium -- the Scientology Millennium.
"Juggernaut" caught my attention. The word is derived from the
title of the Hindu deity Krishna, whose idol is drawn on a huge
cart in an annual procession. At one time it was (mistakenly)
thought that fanatics would throw themselves under the wheels
to be crushed, as a sacrifice to the god. Thus, the definition
(from the American Heritage dictionary):
Something, such as a belief or an institution, that
elicits blind and destructive devotion or to which
people are ruthlessly sacrificed; an overwhelming,
advancing force that crushes or seems to crush
everything in its path.
Scientology "crushingly" defined in its own words.
