In recent years a lot of sexually-liberated women have supported and posed topless for a group called GoTopless.Org, myself among them. It seemed a worthy cause even to me when I first heard about it since I am a naturist and a free-thinker, so I contributed a photo of myself topless with the group’s sign (Free Your Breasts and Free Your Mind – GoTopless.Org) in my picture to support the movement. Many of us have done so without knowing exactly who is behind this organization. It turns out that it is one of several front-groups for a UFO religious cult called the Raëlians, the second-largest UFO-based religious cult in the world after Scientology. Its founder is a former French racing journalist named Claude Vorilhon who now goes by the name of Raël for his followers. There are many aspects to their beliefs that I actually find intriguing like the promotion of sexual freedom and an embrace of non-conventional sexualities including everyone in the LGBTQ community, but there are many more aspects to their beliefs that seem highly questionable or even bizarre and like any cult their leader Raël has established a hierarchical power structure with himself at the top. The most attractive female members of the cult are expected to provide their sexual favors to Raël of course, so his motivations seem obvious. He’s just another dirty old man!

The symbol of the cult is a six-pointed star-of-David within which a swastika is inscribed. This may seem an ominous iconography to use and some have condemned the cult for its display of the controversial symbolism and for their belief in a concept called Geniocracy which involves a plan for democracy which limits candidacy for public office and participation in voting rights to only those who pass a certain level of tested intelligence. This may seem eerily reminiscent of the Third Reich’s theme of a master-race ruling over the lesser races, but the leaders of the International Raëlian Movement claim that their intention is merely to reclaim the swastika from its unfortunate association with the Nazis and return it to its historic meaning as a symbol of good fortune as it was used in many ancient cultures including Native American and several Eurasian societies. The cult also supports genetically-modified food production, human-cloning for the purpose of transferring human consciousness from our aging bodies into cloned copies thus making humans immortal, and perhaps their most bizarre belief: that we humans are all the result of being seeded on earth by an extra-terrestrial civilisation called the Elohim which will return someday to welcome us into their interstellar society which they have perfected… once we have ended all war and embraced peaceful co-existence and the wise stewardship of our planet.

The Raëlians are gaining supporters from around the world and despite a theology which seems as crazy as the Scientologists, they draw in supporters who are attracted to the free sexuality practiced by its members and its pseudo-scientific pretenses of establishing a human paradise on earth, free of war, replete with promises of immortality through cloning technology. As religions go it is probably only marginally crazier than all the other established religions, all of which seem pretty irrational to me when you examine them closely, but if you’re a girl and like me believe you should have just as much right as a man to go topless in public, my recommendation is to support the go-topless movement for your own reasons and not out of support for the International Raëlian Movement. It took me over a year from the time I offered up MY bare tits to the GoTopless.Org website to find out about their connection to this weird cult, but I don’t plan to remove my topless picture from any of the websites I uploaded it to! I kinda like it!
