'Bachelor' Star

Scientology Won't Leave Me Alone!

12/17/2010 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former "The Bachelor" winner Shayne Lamas is waging war on the Church of Scientology -- claiming Xenu's followers are billing her $1,500 ... even though she wants nothing to do with them.

1216_lamas_doc_launch
Shayne's lawyer fired off a letter to the famous L. Ron Hubbard shrine in Hollywood, demanding the church quit sending her bills for $1,506.35 -- claiming the bills are bogus ... and that Shayne "is not now, nor ever has been, a member of your organization or the Church of Scientology."

A Church rep claims Shayne "made a donation in 2004" -- but the check didn't clear. The rep says they'll stop sending letters to Shayne.

Best part ... Shayne's lawyer also reps her husband Nik Richie -- the guy behind TheDirty.com -- who says he's a big "Top Gun" fan and might be interested in joining the Church ... if they send him letters addressed to "Maverick."

We're guessing that's a negative, Ghost Rider.

You do not get a role in Hollywood if you do not invest your money into scientology(Scientologists were that smart that they attacked all the heads of major hollywood studios).

But be warned, when you hook up, and they know all of your secrets because you so willingly told them, you are their house pet for life.

Oh, wtf eva! They are nice people. Never ever once bothered or harassed me for anything. In fact one of the guys gave me one of their books free. I wanted it and no one forced me. Actually, something they do worked really well for me. She's a loser for writing a bad check for a donation.

Wow she sort of looks like Heidi Montag in this picture. Funny how people resemble each other. Just recently I was sitting with ‘xxxxx’ from the Bohemian Grove and a 12ft. tall alien-life-form, reincarnate named Daśagrīva - Dude uses an elephant trunk appendage that extends from below his naval to communicate in any spoken tongue. Anyway, we’re working feverishly trying to implant this chip deep in Evi Quaid’s somatosensory cortex when without warning the appendage reaches over my shoulder and says in this creepy voice “ Tim Russert.” I’m confused till I see a framed photo, I say “No Daśagrīva that’s Randy Quaid.” (Daśagrīva hated Russert). Anyhow It dawns on me just how surreal the moment is and I bite my lip to hold back a flood of laughter. I’m thinking: Shiit, If I laugh out loud Daśagrīva is going to vaporized me! Out of sheer luck I stood back and bumped into a stereo and no kidding it started to play ‘Scenes from an Italian restaurant,’ by Billy Joel (which apparently is one of Evi’s favorites songs) Anyway we ALL started laughing, in retrospect it was a very good time.

Of course they were nice to you - They wanted your money and total devotion!

How nice are the Scientology people to the so-called 'SP' Suppressive People in your life? The defintion of an 'SP' being a person who doesn't believe in or questions Scientology and might be warning you about it.

They specifically prey upon people who are at a weak point in their life...

Scientology is creepy, and it always surprises me how some seemingly rational people have bought into it.

They never got a dime from me nor asked. There is something in it that works. I always try something before I knock it. Too many things are all hyped up. I seriously can go on for days about Christianity out of all the different religions I have studied. Churches ask for money all the time. You don't hear people griping about tithing. It's all the same just a different name. Whatever makes you happy. Tom Cruise seems really happy. Good for him and he seems like a genuinely good guy. So who cares.

"Scientology is creepy, and it always surprises me how some seemingly rational people have bought into it. "

Honestly, I could use that same response about Christianity. You can debate back and forth with it. I'm not a Scientoligist btw. It's creepy to you because it's different then what you have been taught. I guess one must have to have some sort of intelligence because it does requires some reading skills. lol

This is probably a Scientology's Office of Special Affairs agents trying to handle this story. Scientology has never and will never give one dollar to any sort of charity so it's they who are the losers.

Writing a bad check to Scientology means you may as well "blow your brains out, or dive off a cliff."

Oh wait, those are the logical alternatives to knowing Xenu, once you've paid up to that level, according to their old "orientation" film.

Giving any money to Cruise's mafia is equivalent to insanity certification, but bad checks don't count, so Shayne.

Stay away from The Org, aka "oasis of sanity."

OT OT7    

StupidScientology!

They wtf eva is certainly coming form OSA (office of special affairs - the cults intelligence division - what kind of church needs an intelligence division???).

I'm old OT7. Formally the highest level you could achieve. Simply put, organized scientology is a: mind bending, brainwashing, family destroying (That's actually their policy too!), financial ruining, First Amendment hating (except for them), U.S. Government hating (Just like Al Qeada!), public school infiltrating (Very scary), criminal enterprise cult with Satanic and black magic roots.

To see their most sacred "scriptures" for free go to: www.xenu.net. Scroll down the home page all the way to the bottom where it says,"Always Remember To Laugh." Click on "South Park Takes On Scientology." Let it ramp up and enjoy the show.

The reason they don't tell you what they believe up front? Because if they did you'd be ROTFLYAO (Rolling on the floor laughing your a** off!) After which you'd be walking out the door with you back accounts still in tact.

I am old OT7. Formally the highest level one could achieve. After OT3, it's all about disembodied space aliens (or space cooties if you like) that have attached themselves to your body. Each human has between 2,000 and 3,000 (more if you're rich!) alien spirits inhabiting their body. Seriously, I'm not kidding. and that's the cause of all of your negative emotions and problems. Space cooties. You just can't make this stuff up! Wait, my bad! That's exactly what Hubbard did and called a religion!

To see their most secret sacred "scriptures" for FREE, go to: www.xenu.net. Scroll down the home page to the bottom where it says, Always Remember To Laugh." Click on "South Park Takes On Scientology." Let it ramp up and enjoy the show. Tom Cruise used his influence to have this episode taken off the air because it exposes their "core belief."

Why do they keep so super secret? Because if they told you up front what they believe in you'd be ROTFLYAO (Rolling on the floor laughing your a** off!). After which you'd be walking out the door with all of your bank accounts still in tact!
