They say that trying to circumvent the truth is like trying to step out from under the sky—there’s nowhere to go and no way you can avoid it.
Showbiz411 blogger Roger Friedman, like the bigot that he is, has ceased searching for plausible reasons for hating Scientologists and just assumes if he complains loudly enough about nothing, people will agree with him.
Roger Friedman thinks he can outshout the truth.
And the truth is that the Church of Scientology is a good thing, that its people are good people and that despite his protestations, they with their global programs of human rights education, disaster relief, drug prevention, literacy, character building and rehabilitation are doing more for the world in any given minute than Friedman could hope to achieve in a myriad of lifetimes.
That is the truth. And the truth never sleeps. And it doesn’t go away.
Bigots, however, never learn. And Roger Friedman is a bigot. In his latest rant he shrieks that there are Scientologists in Hollywood. (He can’t say why this is a bad thing—just that it is bad.)
Roger Friedman, like the bigot that he is, has ceased searching for plausible reasons for hating Scientologists.
Bigots refuse to see what is staring them in the face. Friedman knows that his whinings hold no water, knows he can’t persuade with logic, knows his anger and stupidity are on full display, so instead of reason he resorts to name-calling—the classic playbook of the bigot.
He has a problem. Roger Friedman is hostile toward good people who have done him no wrong.
When you write one witless piece defaming good people, it’s called a smear. When you write two, it’s excessive. When you write as many as Friedman has, it’s pathetic. He is screaming alone in the dark with only his echo to endorse him.
Winston Churchill once said, “The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.”
And there it is.
