Billion-Year Scientology Contract
From Boing Boing, this is a copy of a billion-year contract to join the Sea Org division of the Church of Scientology. According to Operation Clambake, the Sea Org is some kind of naval division of the church that is very powerful. The contract is a hoot.
The K is difficult to read, but here are the good parts…
I, ___________________ DO HEREBY AGREE to enter into employment with the SEA ORGANIZATION…
being of sound mind, do fully realize and agree to abide by its purpose which is to get ETHICS IN on this PLANET AND UNIVERSE and, fully and without reservation, subscribe to the discipline, mores and conditions of this group and pledge to abide by them.
THEREFORE, I CONTRACT MYSELF TO THE SEA ORGANIZATION FOR THE NEXT BILLION YEARS. (As per Flag Order 232)
Huh? It is a strange agreement and one that Siouxsie would not advise any client to sign. Admittedly, most religions are pretty weird. The document probably isn’t a valid contract. There doesn’t seem to be any consideration. There is no meeting of the minds. Perhaps, it is a contact of adhesion? No matter, one billion years is a really long time.
Siouxsie would like to take this opportunity to call upon Greta Van Susteren, the famous lawyer, television commentator and practicing Scientologist to explain this document. What in the name of Xenu is this all about?
Until Ms. Van Susteren responds, enjoy this video.
