OC Register Columnist David Whiting Gives Blowjob Review to New OC Church of Scientology

Thumbnail image for David-Whiting-OCR-bootlicker.jpg
When Orange County Register columnist David Whiting wrote solely about the outdoors, he was entertaining, informative, and offered a valuable perspective to county readers. But as the Reg's main columnist, he's what Moxley accurately, hilariously refers to as The Bootlicker--and he's being nice as to what part of the human anatomy Whiting likes to drag his tongue and hands across in the effort to please (or maim) his subjects.

His most infamous apologias center around the Fullerton police officers who beat Kelly Thomas to death (and the now-recalled councilmembers who loved them), but Whiting was more than happy to offer sloppy seconds yesterday to the Orange County Church of Scientology and their new Ideal Org in SanTana.

"While researching Scientology, I read allegations about heavy handed and controlling officials," Whiting said early in his review. "Perhaps. But consider..." and then went on to say how welcome he felt when visiting the Ideal Org, noting "even the lobby was pretty amazing."

"Perhaps"? That's like saying the Catholic Diocese of Orange might've allowed a bunch of child rapists minister in OC for decades, but look at the original retablo where Father Serra prayed!

Whiting's research for his article? A tour guide, a visit to Scientology's website, and a quick mention of the Los Angeles Times' masterful 1990 series which further exposed Xenu to mainstream America--which Whiting distorts by implying that the series stated humans are descended from aliens, which allows him to quickly cite the Scientology website that states "these scurrilous statements, issued by the 'Internet fringe,' are not only patently untrue, they are intentionally designed to ridicule Scientologists and denigrate their actual religious beliefs."

Slurp slurp! Actually, Davy, the story goes that Xenu bombed Earth, unleashing a mass killing whose souls (thetans) are now attached to us, and we need to get rid of them by enrolling in Scientology. Nowhere do critics say humans are descended from aliens--it's Scientology 100, pendejo. Hell, that's remedial Scientology for Dummies.

The column goes on like this--Whiting visits a "Purification Center" (a glorified gym), attends a service, and that's that. No mention of Josh's getting banned from the Ideal Org's grand opening. No mention of the many defectors and controversies over the years, many documented by my fellow wab, Village Voice editor Tony Ortega. Nope. Just a boring, meandering waste of time that, of course, was immediately praised by Scientologists in the Reg's comment section. A new generation of bootlickers for you to promote, Davy!

Gustaveo you are clearly what L.Ron Hubbard referred to as the hopeless 2 and a half percent ......pretty much a waste of oxygen. You and you Scientology critics are willfully ignorant and or invincibly stupid. Go back to gay issues and blow jobs something your more familier with.

Oh, really now?

 

What irresponsible reporting. Sensationalism at it's worst.

 

Where is this SanTana place? Is it a city in Mexico? Is it a third-world country? Sounds like it is a third world country. Should just be bombed.

 

This Gustavo fool sounds very jealous.

David Whiting is starting to look like an OC Weekly contrarian! Are we also his raison d'etre?

OC Register is hack. OC Church must have paid their bills this month to keep a dying paper going.

Thanks for drawing attention to this.

It's one more glaring example of just how truly awful the Orange County Register is. Just when you think it can't get any worse, it sinks a little lower. Sometimes it's the willful neglect of real stories and the butchering of the news by the naive recent journalism grads, but the columnists and editorials add another level of lies and half-truths.

Is that new owner ever going to clean house?

Gustavo, you sound like the evil witch that was not invited to the party. How lame. That really hurt, that piece of first-hand journalistic information you had to read, right? Obviously the OC Weekly is only capable of is arranging blowjobs with minors through their "backpage.com" money engine. Stop pretending to be a news source and get your shit together.

Re: Purification center: Scientology's Purification Rundown uses toxic amounts of vitamins. They also sell it as Narconon to drug addicts with a bogus claimed success rate, and unpublished papers by Scientologist doctors citing each other.

I know the Register bows down and worships at the mere mention of the Irvine Company...but Church of Scientology? Wow that is sad news...

The check is in the mail. I think Scientology needed the 4th Tom Cruise wife and the alleged opening(think Super-Power building and it's long,uncertain history of construction) of some television studios to drive the entheta down on the net and media, they are feeling pwned right now.

The Cult of Scientology considers journalists "Merchants of Chaos." David Whiting is just gaining their confidence so he can gain access to Gold Base (Int) in Hemet and interview David Miscavige.Yes, he may have to suck a few more or even go for a ride on the Hershey Highway to gain access. This man is old school, he'll do what it takes to get the job done. Before persuing the story, he may want to up his credit card limit and start the paper work for a second mortgage.

Good call Gustavo.

 @LronJr Yeah, I wouldn't pay too much attention to the ramblings of a man consistently proven to be a bullshit artist bar none.

@LouanneLee That's a good seal--repeating the propaganda you're required to spew like a seal up chucking on bad fish. Arf arf!

 @cofsll  Scientology hired an out of work journalist lackey named Jim Lynch

who spend his time writing attack pieces on former members.

I heard they have a spot open on their Trashy Cult rag freedumb Magazine!

maybe the OC Register Journalist Is looking to work for the Cult full time!

it might be the lure of half price auditing that reels in looser willing to sell his soul to David Miscavige.

 

Louanne Scientologist aren't experts on blowjobs..they are.to fearful of swallowing thetans,except for John Travolta

 @ivanmapother I guess that's a possibility -- could be a strategy. I don't think it will work though because Miscavige doesn't allow interviews even with cult lickers. I read the Whiting story and just thought it was lame beyond credibility. The sauna was jammed with 2 people, so that part was funny -- probably both employees enlisted to be there during the reporter's visit. Scientology wouldn't need to hire a whole crowed to jam their empty Org unless a major network was visiting.

 @GavinoIdda I don't think Whiting will want the job when he finds out how many toilets he has to lick clean in order to reach a "state of clear".
