The Crazy Dianetics & Scientology Holiday Catalog!

Girl blog Jezebel has come up with a great find! Make sure to click through the gallery to view “gotta see it to believe it” gifts such as a collection of 18 Nigerian goatskin-bound books of The Basics for $2,000 and a $4,650 E-Meter (in a wide range of colors, shown at right):

A million thank yous to the reader who mailed me the Dianetics & Scientology Holiday catalog! With so much crazytown inside, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.

While Scientology has been going through tough times lately — a French court convicted the church of fraud and Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis resigned publicly — spokesperson Tommy Davis says the church is flourishing: assets and property holdings have doubled over the past five years. Is some of that cash from the catalog sales? Maybe!

    For those of you still confused about what to get me for Christmas, I'd like the large gold OT bracelet (with diamonds). And don't worry, I'm clear. The quantum e-meter also, in blue please, to match my eyes.

    I'd also really like someone to put a hardcover on that catalog, so I can keep in on my coffee table.

    I have always been interested in the E-meter. William Burroughs flirted with Scientology, but mostly came away with a respect for the E-meter and the bio-feedback aspect it could bring to psychotherapy.

    I am also reminded – as I saw him play last night – of the Leonard Cohen song “Famous Blue Raincoat” with it's ominous/Scientology-inspired chorus.

    Jane came by with a lock of your hair.
    She said that you gave it to her
    The night that you planned to go Clear.
    Did you ever go Clear?

    Everything should have the option to come in ‘Planetary Dissemination Blue’.
