Let us all get to work on our PT Anderson obituaries

18 Feb

It has been (confirmed: Paul Thomas Anderson is working on a movie about Scientology. Let’s set aside for a moment the potential brilliance of this film — you’ll recall Anderson is responsible for Boogie Nights, Magnolia and There Will Be Blood — and instead acknowledge the personal risk Anderson is taking to create this movie.

To be more specific, I am saying Anderson is probably going to die soon.

Consider the deaths of others who have tried to sully the good name of those Xenu-loving, alien-believing Scientologists. Read up on the many illegal activities undertaken by the “religion” to publicly attack anyone who dare question its integrity. And last, remember the haunting, unforgettable Vanity Fair essay that details the suicides of two people with a history of speaking out against Scientology.

Now, for all I know, the many reports of crimes enacted by the organization could be exaggerated or flat-out untrue. Hell, the movie could be pro-Scientology, for all we know. I’m just saying, when considering all the facts, it might be best to start writing Anderson’s obituary today.

I’m really gonna miss him.

    If you don’t watch it we’ll be writing yours as well, with all your links to anti-Scientology propaganda and whatnot.

    The truth in that comment has me scared shitless. I’ll be under my bed if anyone needs me.
