There is a list of places to view the Southpark Episode here. I think these Southpark guys should be given an award for this. First off, they have enough money to protect themselves under the SATIRE laws of the USA. They should be able get any lawsuit against them dismissed. Notice how the "Tom Cruise" character said he was going to sue them in England, in the episode? This is b

I just happened to come across this strangely written petition from the "Legion of Christ" about the Rick Ross page about them! I had never even heard about them until now... What is interesting is as far as I can see, the RR page has ZERO editorial content, and is just a list of articles from the press. How can they protest a list of about 80 news articles?

The Making Of Dr. Phil I just finished reading the book, “The Making Of Dr. Phil” which is quite a good book. It paints a clear picture of the kind of person Dr. Phil really is, a hypocrite! What is interesting is that this book did not receive much publicity, as there is an alleged campaign against the book by Phil, and most media outlets refused to interview the writers for fear of

Certain LGAT's will sue you, or threaten to sue you, any chance they can. Look at this web-forum. The "Winds of Changes" folks were sued for going public with allegations.

The Institute that did a coup to get rid of Albert Ellis, also shut down the web forum they were running, due to all of their customers complaining about what they did to Dr. Ellis. They censored and deleted all the critical posts that were there. Straight up censorship, and suppression of dissent. I have just been notified that a new web forum has just been put up, and information about thi

Dear lord, those DVD's would be full out hypno-persuasion, in surround sound. That is new for him, to offer some DVD's, for a cheaper rate, to draw in new people. Then he will inject endless "upsell" stuff, to get people to move into the higher seminar levels. Now Tony gets to brainwash you in Digital 5.1 surround-sound on your big-screen TV.

Dr. Albert Ellis, who is 92 years old, has been ousted from his own Institute, The Albert Ellis Institute, a non-profit corporation. I have spoken about Dr Ellis many times and the amazing work he has done, who is the founder of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). There is a lot to this story, but the bottom line is that his Institute has been seized by people who in my view are after the

Some information is coming out about more failure in Robbins personal life. This is relevant in this sense.

I am also highly suspicious of the main claim these types of sites are making. You will notice that a number of them use the term "multi-faith" when describing themselves. Since when do "multi-faiths" play well together in an organization? What happens is they start fighting within themselves, and ultimately one group takes over. My gut feeling is that these so-called Rel

They also claim here that CAN is run by a "multi-faith group", when I t
