Is Ukraine ruled by hilarious (or just plain) superstition?

Some 85 percent of Christians in Ukraine belong to the Orthodox Church, Russian or Greek. Protestants comprise one percent of the population. This country is now ruled by a Baptist President and an alleged scientologist Prime Minister, (in that case) both within two typically western belief systems, one of which is even extremely American. Let’s just assume this is a coincidence, unrelated to them being appointed to their positions by the US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland.

The president, Oleksandr Turchynov, is presented by a Christian website (CT) as “a well-known Baptist pastor” but by Wikipedia as just “a lay preacher”. In the western world we’ve had our toll of deeply Christian Heads of State waging bloody, devastating and illegal wars, so Christianity is nothing comforting in itself. We may just hope that this Baptist president is of a more peaceful kind, though signs of that hitherto aren’t overwhelming.

The allegation that the Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk is a scientologist is most troublesome and it’s vitally important for him to deny every connection with such a compromised sect. Due to the deep secrecy in the organization in question it’s difficult to collect any kind of proof, and there are no such to be found by a quick search on the Internet. For the time being, and following a fundamental legal principle, Yatsenyuk must be considered not guilty. This is also what our media have done by not reporting a single word about the allegations.

It’s hard to believe that a scientologist would ever be considered fit to become Prime Minister in any western country, simply because that “religion” is all too wacky. According to the rumors in question Yats – as Nuland calls him – is not just a passive participant in this “church” but a high-ranking member of the sect with a “level of auditing” called OT-6 (out of a total of 8). If this would be the case he would be familiar with the secret myths in the scriptures, concocted by L. Ron Hubbard and now leaked. (But, as I said, we must assume he isn’t.)

Hubbard’s story is hilarious and breaks all records from the very beginning. The reality, as known by scientology, came into existence four quadrillion (1015) years ago, which also is to say some four quadrillion years before Big Bang. Wikipedia has parts of the continued story: “… Xenu was the ruler of a Galactic Confederacy 75 million years ago, which consisted of 26 stars and 76 planets including Earth, which was then known as “Teegeeack”. The planets were overpopulated, containing an average population of 178 billion…”

“Xenu was about to be deposed from power, so he devised a plot to eliminate the excess population from his dominions. With the assistance of psychiatrists, he gathered billions of his citizens under the pretense of income tax-inspections, then paralyzed them and froze them in a mixture of alcohol and glycol to capture their souls. The kidnapped populace was loaded into spacecraft for transport to the site of extermination, the planet of Teegeeack (Earth). … When they had reached Teegeeack, the paralyzed citizens were unloaded around the bases of volcanoes across the planet. Hydrogen bombs were then lowered into the volcanoes and detonated simultaneously, killing all but a few aliens.”

No wonder Yats had to deny all connection with such lunacies, regardless of everything.
