Is Luka Magnotta, Canadian Porn Actor and Murder-Dismembering Suspect, a Scientologist?

Magnotta, from a 2007 blog in which he announces that he's joined Scientology
As the world tries to hunt down porn actor and murder suspect Luka Rocco Magnotta, Canada's National Post today pointed out something interesting -- Magnotta, 29, apparently converted to Scientology a few years ago.

Activists over at WhyWeProtest.net, naturally, were on to this months ago, when Magnotta first gained notoriety after he was blamed for posting to the Internet in January 2010 a notorious video of two kittens being strangled.

Now, Magnotta's in much more trouble, on the run after mailing parts of a man he allegedly killed and dismembered -- while videotaping it -- and then disappearing from his Montreal home. He's now thought to be hiding in France, and Interpol is on his trail.

We looked around and found evidence that this monster did become active in Scientology about five years ago. We've sent a request to the Church for a statement.

At a blog from 2007, Magnotta posts two very mechanical statements about Scientology. The first reads as though Magnotta cut and paste it from a Scientology website:

Luka Magnotta : Model and Church of Scientology Member

Scientologists come from all walks of life. They are concerned about social problems and support numerous social betterment programs which provide successful drug-abuse rehabilitation, improve educational standards and help reduce crime and moral decay. Thousands of Scientologists help their communities as Scientology Volunteer Ministers.

The Church always has been a relentless voice in search of social reform and justice. We have brought to light such issues as the enforced drugging of school children, the dangers of psychiatric brutalities such as electric shock treatment and lobotomy; and the chemical and biological warfare experiments secretly undertaken against unwitting American citizens. Scientology churches have championed the principle of open government and pioneered the use of the Freedom of Information Act to eradicate abuses.

Because the Church is so active and so prominent, and because Scientology is a large and growing international religion, Scientology continues to be a subject of public and media interest.

The second post is an even longer, and just as generic, description of Scientology's basic concepts.

After that, there's an anti-Hamas statement by Magnotta, and then the blog ends.

In 2008, Magnotta also appears to have spoken up for Scientology at an Amazon.com forum that was titled "Scientology is a cult, with very real risks for its members who are abused and taken advantage of!"...

Pardon me, Let me clarify something to you please sir...I am a member of the Church and I dont appreciate you talking negatively about them.

I am not being taken advantage of and they have been a big help in my life. Nor am I abused. I feel better then ever being associated with them, alot of very wonderful people, I need the church.

Sincerely Luka Magnotta

As for Magnotta's bizarre past, the National Post points out several lowlights of his life....

Magnotta is also believed to have tortured and killed several kittens in 2010, accusations which he denied. His blogs often deal with cyber-stalking and online defamation -- against him. But many believed he defamed himself, by posting rumours that he dated Karla Homolka.

However, he does have an official record for defrauding numerous large retail chains in 2004, including Sears Canada Inc., the Brick and 2001 Audio Video. He also was accused of stealing $17,000 from a woman and sexually assaulting her, although the sex charge was later dropped.

One of the eeriest and most recent blog posts, however, was posted in March, 2012, and titled "Necrophilia Serial Killer Luka Magnotta." It describes his sexual attraction to dead bodies.

"It's not cool to the world being a necrophiliac . . . I don't see myself as some creepy pervert. I'm just somebody who has feelings, real feelings, for dead men."

More about Magnotta as we get it...


UPDATE: The Sun reveals that it was communicating with Magnotta for some time, and tried to alert authorities about him. The newspaper says that it became alarmed about the man after the kitten-killing videos surfaced, and actually traded messages with him. In those messages, Magnotta boasted about killing, and said that a human would be next. He apparently made good on that promise. Much more at The Sun.

New readers might want to check out our primer, "What is Scientology?" Another good overview is our series from last summer, "Top 25 People Crippling Scientology." At the top of every story, you'll see the "Scientology" category which, if you click on it, will bring up all of our most recent stories.

As for hot subjects we've covered here, you may have heard about Debbie Cook, the former church official who rebelled and was sued by Scientology. You might have also heard about the Super Power Building, Scientology's "Mecca," whose secrets were revealed here. We also reported how Scientology spied on its own most precious object, Tom Cruise. (We wrote Tom an open letter that he has yet to respond to.) Have you seen a Scientology ad on TV lately? We debunked some of the claims in that 2-minute commercial you might have seen while watching Glee or American Idol.

Other stories have looked at Scientology's policy of "disconnection" that is tearing families apart. You may also have heard something about the Sea Org experiences of the Paris sisters, Valeska and Melissa, and their friend Ramana Dienes-Browning. We've also featured Paulette Cooper, who wrote about Scientology back in the day, and Janet Reitman, Hugh Urban, and the team at the Tampa Bay Times, who write about it today. And there's plenty more coming.

Quote:

"Admiration particles"



In The Creation of Human Ability, Hubbard hailed "compelled admiration"
as an important step of progress in "Knowingness", as measured on his
"Know to Sex" scale. Hubbard stated:



"It can be observed that the eating of living flesh or live cells
delivers a kind of admiration to the taste, and it can be observed that
under torture, duress of all kinds, the tortured one will suddenly, if
degradedly, admire his torturer."



Hubbard then went on to say that sex was an even better "communication
system" for the same purposes of forced "admiration", and defined the
sex act, consensual or otherwise, as "an interchange of condensed
admiration particles".

Scientology's views on the body



Hubbard called the physical world MEST, which is something we, as
ethereal Thetans temporarily operating our "meat bodies", are meant to
transcend and conquer. Thetans are of the "Theta Universe", and the
entire purpose of the Theta Universe is, in Hubbard's words, "the
conquest, change, and ordering" of this universe. [12]



Scientologists often refer to their bodies as "this piece of meat," or
"this meat of ours" [13] and new recruits to the church are classified
as "raw meat". [14] Scientology is geared towards attaining "cause over
MEST", attaining awareness that our bodies are undesirable physical
objects that are only holding us back, and attaining the ability to
abandon one's body via "exteriorization" and ultimately by becoming an
Operating Thetan Clear and a Cleared Theta Clear. [15] The Scientology
Tone scale, in fact, lists needing a body (and all body-related matters)
among the lowest of all possible states."

Why do I think this guy who is a known deviant, nut-job for years was thrust into the spotlight to deflect attention from a more high-profile Scientologist? That's how it works in the business, right? You keep some livestock around for this type of sacrifice. To keep the machine going you must feed it. You don't feed it with your gold, platinum and diamonds. You feed the machine with the slop. Allegations against the celebrity being true or false, it seems to me a convenient time to introduce a far more salacious story by a less-than-important practioner. No doubt, we'll all be reading about the celeb couple's renewal of vows, another baby on the way or some spectacular event in coming weeks. Textbook military PR.

Sheesh, I just closed a tab of French paper Le Figaro after a quick check just to see how big this story's playing in France (there are several Magnotta articles in today's edition). Magnotta's been seen in Paris this weekend. I thought I wouldn't have to look at Magnotta's psycho-baby-face again today, thankfully, & would check out the Ortega blog instead for a break from the gruesome story that's received  saturation coverage here in Canada. No such luck!Instead, more Magnotta revelations! I missed seeing the National Post article citing his Scientology affiliation. The first few days of the story, I was reading everything on it,but soon reached over-saturation point, & don't want to spend too much more time learning every detail available about this narcisisstic psychopathic murderer's mind. As one pundit noted after reading details about the snuff video of the murder Magnotta posted online to a public gore-celebrating site, you want a  long hot shower after reading it. And as a cat person, I view Magnotta's kitten killing as more than enough to place him far beyond redemption in my mind!Anyway, I'm still glad I learned via the VV about Magnotta's Scientology membership.Hard to know what the Scientology connection might mean, or if his brush with LRH's teachings impelled him towards violence ( it certainly didn't seem to help stop him) for some reason or other. He must realize he just lowered himself WAY down on L Ron's  tone scale though!

I have SUCH a strong disapproval of scientology and regularly attend anti-scientology protests, but honestly I don't think this is one of the many terrible things which reflect on them. This guy is a lunatic, he did some insane shit that even they wouldn't want him to do. If the Church tried to cover it up to save face (for the thousandth time), or involved themselves in some shitty way, it would be another story.

Luka Magnotta has been known for making up lots of tall tales just for the sake of generating attention. He once claimed that he was in a relationship with Karla Homolka, a Canadian serial killer, and that turned out to be completely false. Then he claimed he had briefly lived with Marcus Allen, a porn actor who has been found guilty of murder. Once again, this was completely invented. Magnotta is just out there for anything that could stick provided that it brings him attention. To become a member of the Church of Scientology is a choice that can generate attention and controversy, right? Well, that's why Magnotta, the mentally disturbed attention seeker he is, has claimed to be a parishioner regardless of his real status in terms of church membership. It makes people talk about him. What you've found, Tony, is evidence that Magnotta has been posting in the 'net messages in which he brags about his commitment to Scientology, but that doesn't mean much. That's not proof positive that he's really a Scientologist. When you're delusional and you say something, it's up for grabs whether you're telling the truth. Those messages that Magnotta posted in one of his many blogs, now, it takes two minutes to copy them from a Scientology website and paste them over there. Bottom line: If you're normal and you claim that you're a Scientologist, I guess it's not a stretch to believe you upfront. But when you're Luka Magnotta, that's a completely different thing.

Until we have reliable evidence like his name on a course completion list, I tend to think of him as a wanna-ba clam. I have observed another person with a tenuous grasp of reality (he was, apparently, the number one target of and threat to the CIA and Mossad and so on) who learned that the Co$ had been found a tax free organisation by the IRS and said "I want to join them! They're so powerful that they can make my CIA trouble go away!! After the IRS, the world!!!"

Also, I'd be surprised if he did not have a drug history that would make him ineligible. And I'm happy to be corrected, but I do believe that it's standard operating procedure to turn away, even for the criminal organisation known as the "church" of $cientology, to turn away people who are too wacky.

All I see is a scary nutter who found the Internet to be the perfect arena for his psychosis and perhaps found the idea of pretending to be a member of a perceived powerful and notorious group stimulating.

As others have alluded to, there does seem to be much to the Manson / $cientology connection. In that case, we're talking about masquerading as a religion, about being apocalyptic (both a core part of the $cientology shtick) and the connection is well documented (by the standards of this story ;) ).

Even as a fervent critic of the organisation, and the belief system, of $cientology, I do not see mutilated kittens - I see people whose souls have been raped, whose wallets have been emptied and whose families have been destroyed. But not a lot of dead kittens.

From what I've read this is a guy who wanted to be a.) famous and b.) persecuted. So it makes sense for him to glom onto Scientology. I don't think that Scientology broke him, I doubt he had any dedication to it. However it does show that Sci certainly was unable to identify and help this fellow... Not that anyone needed proof of that.

No, this nutball is one for the record books. He used a knife and fork, and brought a dog in at some point to... well, you can imagine. This was after the multiple stabbing, dismemberment, and necrophilia. Plus, the part about how he made a video package of "highlights" and posted it online alongside his kitten-torture videos. Bath-salt maniac didn't do anything unheard of for someone jacked up on PCP, speed, or now, this new chemical crap. He was caught on security video while violently flipping out. Lukey-boy has ambition, to make some kind of psychotic mark. Much, much worse, IMO. And, he's still on the loose.

The Toronto Sun talked with their reporter who did a story on Magnotta in 2007. Apparently he scared a lot of people that he talked to. FF to 05:24 into the video.http://www.torontosun.REMOVEcom/2012/06/01/magnotta-linked-to-white-supremacist-site

I'm not sure that his connection with Scientology was anything more than part his online chameleon facade. But I will wager this: If he did have a real connection with Scientology, somewhere in the Montreal or Toronto org, there's a paper-shredder that's cooling down from hard use.

If he did date Karla Homolka, then he's not totally gay. (Totally F'ed in the head, yes.)

Is it just me, or should Ms Homolka's contact lists be examined in great detail? Anyone else?

Does anyone even know where Homolka is ? Last I read people were guessing she was living on some Caribbean island with some millionaire. To bad she wasn't still in prison so we wouldn't have to speculate about it, but she was a victim of Bernardo's abuse and brainwashing so I guess I should cut her some slack.

Actually I was being sarcastic about Homolka being abused and brainwashed. Many people consider her the more evil of the two much the same way many people considered Myra Hindley the more evil one in that folie a deux.

In order to get testimony against Bernardo, Homolka was painted as some kind of victim rather than an equally guilty co-crazy. I found that to be pretty dubious, and not a high point of Canadian law history.

We in RTC once again deny that Luke Magnota is a Scientologist or is any way connected to the Church of Scientology.

The Church's Office of Special Affairs has investigated this matter thoroughly and determined that Magnotta is a "Manchurian Candidate" who was programmed by Nazi Psychiatry to claim status as a Scientologist and then perform a gruesome murder, this in order to discredit the Church of Scientology.

This same Manchurian Candidate programming happened with Gur Finklestein. Rex Fowler, and Charles Manson and many other criminals. This programming is done using PDH (pain, drugs, hypnosis) and is a specialty of the Rockefeller-funded World Psychiatric Association.

The recent wave of Cannibalism the world is seeing is caused by another Psych Drug called "Bath Salts"' and is yet another way that Nazi Psychiatry is terrifying the masses into taking more Psych Drugs to alleviate the fear and anxiety that people have when they think that crazed killers can eat their faces off or mail their severed body parts around the world.

The recent wave of Cannibalism, mutilations, and shocking new mind-control drugs that make people act like monsters has been created and engineered by Nazi Psychiatry as one of its endless social engineering plots to destroy the Church of Scientology. Nazi Psychiatry is pushing new globalist UN laws that would force all people who refuse to take Psych Drugs into prison camps in Alaska, Siberia, New Mexico, Antarctica, China, Australia, and the large underground camp whose secret entrance is located insider of a theater in Alhambra, California.

The Office of Special Affairs has the evidence. Freedom Magazine will be issuing a special hard-hitting edition aimed at nuking Psych funding lines at their source thus eradicating the scourge of Nazi Psychiatry.

The only safe place these days is an officially sanctioned Church of Scientology Ideal Org. We urge people to run to their closest Ideal Org today for safety from cannibalistic attacks, murder, insanity, and the 100% lies found on the Internet.
