Description: Hubbard is lecturing about communication problems. He gives an example of Earth beings who are out of touch with a space civilization called the Marcab Confederacy. (According to Hubbard, Earth is a prison planet for the Marcabians and we are all inmates.)
Hubbard follows bit of history with an example of Christians who are not getting answers from God, and take out their anger on the Catholic Church.
Somebody who is very Christian, extremely Christian–you know, has to have permission to eat breakfast and has to have permission to eat lunch and then forgiven for the evening. You know, their life wholly turns on these little pivots–will sooner or later in one lifetime or another listen for a moment after the prayer, you see, or something, and the circuit they’ve been using hasn’t–hasn’t spoken for some time. They get no acknowledgment. And they realize they’ve been talking all this time to the Big Thetan4, you see? And nobody’s ever said a word. And they get madder than hell at the Catholic church, you know. And they start revolutions and burn popes and . . . It’s marvelous.
