Scientology's Paramilitary 'Sea Org' is Looking for Suckers

"A recently-leaked 2009 issue of "International Scientology News" features a large advertisement recruiting for Scientology's paramilitary organization and pretend-Navy, the Sea Organization. To anyone who didn't know better (which apparently includes the 50,000 remaining Scientologists worldwide), to join the "Sea Org" is as honorable an endeavor as such legitimate public service as joining the military forces of one's own country. Those fancy uniforms must mean that the Sea Org is very important, right? Unfortunately for Scientology, being in the Sea Org is about as useless a thing as anyone can do. Moreover, it is really an intensification of Scientology brainwashing and in many ways is even a kind of slavery."

Uncertain about Clear for eternity

"After McPherson died, Miscavige successfully withheld from even those handling the criminal and civil cases that he in fact had initiated the chain of events leading to her death. Then in his inimitable every-outpoint-is-a-why style of evaluation, DM instituted a number of arbitraries to make the attestation to the state of Clear an engramic episode. He created a pendulum swing whereby it became an increasingly complicated process to attest to Clear."

Enturbuation X 3

From the Leaving Scientology Blog:

"The cults problems have multiplied approximately threefold every year since the mid 1990's. In other words the collapse of sceintology has become exponential. The interesting thing about exponential change is that it appears to most people that nothing much is happening until everything simply implodes. The collapse of socialism in central Europe is a good example- years of quiet decay followed by an almighty bang."

Scientologists, Trapped By Lies

From the Ask A Scientologist Blog:

"Liars will insist that you not look at opposing viewpoints, not do any research on your own or read anything that contradicts their lies. They will say terrible things about anyone who dares contradict them, accusing them of crimes and horrible behavior (but never providing actual proof).

In case anyone missed it, my description of liars' behavior is exactly what the Church of Scientology does.

To newly-out Scientologists: It is embarrassing to find out how much you've been lied to, but that isn't any reason to continue believing in lies. True freedom comes from living with the truth, whatever it is."

Human Rights Activists Celebrate 2009's Many Wins Against Scientology Cult

"As 2009 comes to a close, the Scientology organization is reeling from another year of high-level defections, criminal convictions, journalistic exposes and books detailing the cult's criminal practices, and intense pressure from human rights activists. The Anonymous global network of human rights activists are keen to hold Scientology's leaders accountable for their crimes, which include organized fraud, human trafficking, kidnapping, obstruction of justice, and toxic waste dumping.

Here are just a few of the many recent victories against the Scientology organization, which until quite recently believed itself immune to all criticism, able to do as it pleased in its insane quest to 'clear the planet' of non-Scientologists through the 'global obliteration of psychiatry.'"

Lise O'Kane Resigns from cult of Scientology

Yet another soon-to-be-pronounced liar dumps the CoS: Lise O'Kane Resigns.

"I was absolutely disgusted with what Miscavige has done to our technology. With Reverse Dianetics & Reverse Scientology DESTROYING SO MANY LIVES WORLDWIDE, I realized the source of that plague was Miscavige himself. The CoS management in its current form is a suppressive group who are forwarding ILLEGAL ORDERS & downright destructive activities from International Management. This group deal in PROPAGANDA AND LIES & promote this widely throughout the world as unprecedented expansion. ORGS ARE EMPTY & hatred of Scientology is at an all time high yet the focus is to get upstat buildings and raise $ for the IAS to solve the problems and attacks. You cannot get Scientology within the churches any more. The brilliant tech of LRH is just NOT available & in its place is a SQUIRREL VERSION. I assign the Church of Scientology management and all its entities the condition of TREASON."

From today's Leaving Scientology Blog:

"Here we have the true spirit of Christmas according to David Miscavige. Spend as much of parishioner money as possible to put on the biggest and most ostentatious display of excess that you can possibly put together. One of these, we assume, went to Tom Cruise. And we have to impress Tom, dont we? Other copies I am sure went to all of the top IAS contributors or, should we say, all of Miscaviges top enablers. Why?

Scientology and anti semitism

From the Leaving Scientology Blog today:

"Scientology and anti semitism."

"Scientology is terrified of international networks (such as Interpol) and has a generalised dislike of bankers and of 'psychs'. Both of these professions are heavily populated by Jews and yet this was not proof of anti Semitism.

LRH seems a genial and all purpose bigot. He was probably happy to take money from any race- but he was also happy to play to prejudice when it suited him. This is why he talked of black people having more overts than white people while he was in southern Africa. It was also why he denigrated Mexicans while in the USA."

Scientology's Foresight: They Have None

"I find humorous about all this Scientology tech is these are supposed to be super-human individuals who have complete control over their environment, but have no foresight into up and coming technologies. You'd think L.Ron, while he was doing all his out of body trips to the Van Allen Belt, he would have bothered to notice a little thing like the internet, South Park, Anonymous or even blogs. Or that they were going to be Scientology's Achilles' heel."

Sex and the Scientologist: From the Desk of L. Ron Hubbard

A little background to help get through the jargon in today's memos. (If we miss anything, there's a fully glossary of the bizarre terms here.) The cult divides its teachings into eight 'dynamics': 1) the self; 2) sex and the family; 3) groups; 4) humankind as a whole; 5) life forms (including animals and plants); 6) the physical universe; 7) the spiritual and 8) infinity. The two documents here come from the Second Dynamic — sex and the family.

Comment by 'Thoughtful' on Portait of a ponzi man

"Scientology has somehow, I don't know how, but somehow it's gotten a bad reputation as a cult. Maybe it's because of Miscavige's insane antics on Night Line years ago. Maybe it's because he started wars with people online. Maybe it's because he tries to discredit whistle blowers. Maybe it's because he's stolen and has wasted hundreds of millions of dollars. Maybe it's because of all the forced abortions in the Sea Org which kinda flies in the face of LRH saying there's 8 dynamics.

Maybe it's because of the many people in his wake who have died. Maybe it's because of all the marriages in the Sea Org that he's crushed. Or people he's destroyed. Or billing Sea Org veterans who leave for $80,000 each which is illegal due to labor laws. Or maybe it has something to do with decades of human trafficking. Maybe it's because of all the people he's violently assaulted and threatened.

I don't know. I'm not Sherlock Holmes.

Then again, maybe it's because of a few "Scientologists" who seem entirely unable to differentiate the logical from the illogical even when the facts are right in front of their face, thereby helping to convince the world that apparently mindless Zombies really do "Walk Among Us."

I'm sorry I can't be of any more help. But I do know that neither you nor anyone else can disseminate Scientology in the face of being a cult.

So Target #1 on any dissemination campaign would have to be "De-cultify Scientology." But somehow in 24 years, David Miscavige has overlooked the first, most obvious, most essential, most important, most vital target.

Thanks again for letting me know that the current campaign is still running! I'm amazed and astonished as since I live alone in at the bottom of a cave with no outside contact with the world at large, I had no idea Miscavige was running ads in a pathetic attempt to prove he is honest after all, only he put the wrong kind of ads on since (god forbid) he didn't want to really sell any LRH books, but mainly just stay out of prison as long as he can since the authorities are asleep at the wheel. Or are they?

By the way, when this Ponzi thief goes down, you're going to look pretty foolish for having blindly supported a criminal. So I recommend you stay anonymous least you go to jail along with David Miscavige."

Just exactly how OT was Ron the OT?

From ESMB:

"First things first. Did Ron actually evidence to anyone in a reliable scientific way that HE himself was an Operating Thetan? Did he demonstrate that he could operate exterior from the body with perception? Did he show anyone his presser and tractor beams? Did he heal bodies, his own or others, with turning black energy white or any other ways? Did he manifest whole track recall that enabled him to find billions of buried treasure? Did he use his whole track recall to patent life-saving medical technology? Did he use past-life intergalactic knowledge to eliminate disease, environmental problems, automobile pollution, poverty or world hunger? Did he show engineers how to build faster and more fuel-efficient passenger vehicles, public transportation or airplanes?Did he show his mind technology healing the sick or curing the insane? Did he ever have one OT tested by an impartial fact-finding study (i.e. scientific authentication)? Did he use his why-finding, debug, correction, qual or recovery technology to recover the vast majority of Scientologists who had left Scientology?

It is clear that he did not do any of these things. Yet, one might still conclude that Ron did in fact possess these OT capabilities yet CHOSE to not reveal them directly. Assuming that could (in theory) be true, there is another way to observe OT phenomena and behavior and that is by simply looking at Ron's personal & professional life..."

Could loneliness be contagious?

From today's Daily Mail:

"Could loneliness be contagious?"

"What lonely people should be doing is seeking out the company of happy people with lots of friends; not marinating in a gang of the emotionally desperate like themselves.

If you find yourself disenchanted by some ghastly cult - like Scientology - the way to get out of it would not be to surround yourself with more disenchanted Scientologists. No, it would be to leave the whole process completely, and step into the outside world."

How Scientology deals with external criticism

Graham Berry publishes an excellent write up, with sources and video, titled, "How the Scientology Organization deals with external criticism, illustrated by the example of the Anonymous Movement in the U.S.A.":

"The Anonymous movement against the criminal and abusive behaviour of the Scientology enterprise began in mid-January 2008, with the publication of the Andrew Morton book on Tom Cruise and the Anonymous Internet release of a 2004 Scientology recruiting video featuring Tom Cruise. Anonymous criticized the Scientology racketeering enterprise for many of the same reasons that were recently stated in the Australian Parliament by Federal Senator Xenophon. He called the Church of Scientology “a criminal organization.” In my opinion and experience, Senator Xenophon and the Anonymous Movement are correct. The Church of Scientology is an international criminal, psycho-terror and hate group."

Defections, court fights test Scientology

The Church of Scientology is going through a difficult season.

Over the course of two days last week, a French court convicted the church of fraud and Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis' resignation from the church over a litany of concerns was aired publicly. On one hand, it was just another bad press week for the embattled institution founded in 1953 by the late science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard.

But for former Scientologists and scholars of the movement, the setbacks pose a greater challenge coming on the heels of defections of top-level Scientologists who lifted a veil of secrecy on the organization and alleged a culture of violence and control under Hubbard's successor, David Miscavige.

"With any organization, the loss of a substantial number of your most experienced people and chaos at the upper levels is problematic," said David Bromley, a Virginia Commonwealth University professor who studies new religious movements and has written on Scientology. "There are PR implications, the possibility of legal actions ... That dwarfs the other things."

The church has strenuously denied the allegations against Miscavige, portraying the accusers as lying disgruntled ex-employees.

Church spokesman Tommy Davis said Scientology is flourishing, with more than 8,000 Scientology churches, missions and groups in 160-plus nations. He said assets and property holdings have doubled over the past five years, including a new church in Rome and another opening this weekend in Washington, D.C.

"From our perspective, things are going pretty great," Davis said. "In fact, that's downplaying it. Actually, what's happening with the church right now is frankly spectacular. To the degree there are these various things happening, it really is a lot of noise."

One major survey of American religion shows Scientology declining in the U.S., however. The estimated number of Americans who identify as Scientologists rose from 45,000 in 1990 to 55,000 in 2001, then plummeted to 25,000 in 2008, according to the American Religion Identification Survey.

Davis said that while the church avoids membership estimates, it's "absolutely in the millions" globally and growing in the U.S.

Scientology has long been controversial. The Internal Revenue Service granted the church tax exemption in 1993 after a nearly four-decade battle over whether it should be considered a religion. Critics say Scientology is a business, preying on people by charging exorbitant sums for services.

The church continues to fascinate, fueled by interest in celebrity adherents such as Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Kirstie Alley, as well as beliefs that don't fit into typical American religious boxes.

Hubbard taught that the "thetan," the equivalent of a spirit, can be cleared of negative energy from this and previous lives through a process called auditing. With the aid of auditors, Scientologists seek a state called "Clear" and then advance through various levels of "Operating Thetan."

The allegations of violence were leveled by four former high-ranking Scientology executives who told their stories to the St. Petersburg Times last summer. The executives said they witnessed Miscavige, chairman of the board that oversees the church, hit staff members dozens of times and urged others to do the same.

Davis called the allegations "absolutely, unquestionably false" and "sickening and outrageous." ABC's "Nightline" aired a report this month covering much of the same ground.

To critics of Scientology and ex-members who have grown increasingly vocal in recent years, it's a breakthrough — critical voices from former members of the inner circle, not the media or outsiders.

"When you have dozens of people speaking out, it's no longer too credible to say they're all malcontents and criminals," said Jeff Hawkins, a former Scientology marketing guru who defected in 2005. "(The church) is either going to reform or collapse, and I think it's going to be the latter because they're incapable of reform or admitting any wrongdoing."

One defector, Marty Rathbun, who served on the church's board and was a top lieutenant of Miscavige's, said a growing movement of people hold to the tenets of Scientology, but reject the institutional church.

"I don't foresee another church," Rathbun said. "That was the first attack on me — that this was a coup, that I'm trying to tap a schism or start another church ... That's not an objective of mine or a positive way to go."

Haggis, the Oscar-winning director of "Crash," was not a high-ranking Scientologist. But his defection is significant, said actor Jason Beghe, who left the church in 2007 and has become a critic.

"He was somebody the Scientology community was proud of, and therefore I'm sure he helped hold some of their base in place," said Beghe, who appeared in the film "G.I. Jane" and TV's "Everwood" and is cast in Haggis' next film, now shooting in Pittsburgh. "Anybody who is a Scientologist is harboring doubts."

It was Rathbun who obtained a copy of Haggis' critical letter to Davis and posted it on his blog. Haggis complained that Davis didn't do enough to distance Scientology from proponents of California's gay marriage ban. He criticized the church's "smearing" of the high-level defectors.

The filmmaker also wrote about the church's practice of "disconnection," in which members cut off contact with loved ones who leave or advocate against the religion — something Davis said is not mandated.

A day after Haggis' letter went public, a Paris court convicted the Church of Scientology of fraud and fined it more than $900,000, but stopped short of banning the group's activities in France. The organization's French branch likened it to a modern-day Inquisition and said it would appeal.

Davis questioned the attention paid to the French verdict, saying that little notice was given when the church won court victories in Italy and Russia that cemented the church's presence in those countries. He said the top-level defections are not troubling, but rather a gain for the church.

Some scholars of Scientology believe the recent setbacks are momentary.

Defectors are overly optimistic about doing any real damage, said J. Gordon Melton, director of the Institute for the Study of American Religion in Santa Barbara, Calif., and editor of a book on Scientology.

"If five cardinals walked out of the Roman Catholic Church and turned on it and said there are bad things happening, it'd be a storm, but the church would weather the storm," Melton said. "I think Scientology is big enough to where it can and will weather the storm."

Most religions, Scientology included, experience disagreement and leadership turmoil after a founder's death and survive, said Susan Palmer, a religious studies professor at Dawson College in Montreal.

"I think they'll end up like the Mormon church or Jehovah's Witnesses, that were very controversial in our time but now are largely accepted," Palmer said.

Others think the Church of Scientology is in trouble. Along with the defections and French court setback, Scientology has been unable to stop Internet leaks of confidential material that members must pay a premium for, said Hugh Urban, a professor in the department of comparative studies at Ohio State University.

"They're really losing what has been the bread and butter," Urban said.

Meanwhile, an online betting parlor is taking wagers on the next celebrity Scientologist to leave.

Church of Scientology convicted of fraud in France

From The Mail online:

The self-styled ‘celebrity’ Church of Scientology was today found guilty of fraud in France and fined more than £500,000.

Prosecutors in Paris were told that the only reason the cult was not banned from the country completely was because it would carry on anyway ‘outside a legal framework’.

The conviction will come as a huge shock to the church’s millions of followers around the world, who include Hollywood actors Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

Examining judges sitting at the Paris Correctional Court found six leading Scientologists guilty of fraud, including Alain Rosenberg, the sect’s leader in France. Rosenberg was given a two-year suspended jail sentence and fined the equivalent of just under £30,000

The church’s so-called Celebrity Centre and Bookshop – both of which make up the HQ of Scientology in France - were ordered to pay the equivalent of £600,000. All were accused of extorting money from ‘vulnerable’ people who had become Scientology followers or employees.

The Paris case was launched following a complaint from two women, one of whom said she was tricked into handing over £20,000 towards dubious projects, including the development of an ‘electrometer’ to measure mental energy. The second woman said she was forced by the Scientologists to undergo embarrassing tests, and to enrol in courses about the sect in 1998. When she refused she was sacked.

Convicted: The Paris branch of the Scientology Church's Celebrity Centre and Bookshop was ordered to pay a £600,000 fine after being convicted of fraud

Judge Jean-Christophe Hullin, who spent years examining the cult’s activities, attacked the Scientologists' ‘obsession’ with financial gain and practices he said were aimed at plunging members into a ‘state of subjection’.

Prosecutors had originally asked for the Celebrity Centre and Bookshop to be shut down completely, and for a £2m fine to be paid. But last month the French courts were alerted to a little-noticed legal change voted in by parliament in May - the month the trial opened - which bars French courts from dissolving an organisation convicted of fraud. Although the change has since been dropped, this was not retrospective and thus Scientology was protected from an outright ban in the ongoing case, forcing the court to downgrade the sentence. Judge Sophie-Helene Chateau said: ‘A ban on its activities would have risked taking us outside the framework of the law.’

The Church of Scientology was founded in America in 1954 by science fiction writer L Ron Hubbard. It is officially recognised as a religion by the US authorities, and claims a worldwide membership of 12 million. In 1995 it was officially classified as a cult in France, where it claims 45,000 followers.

The group’s French branch immediately announced it would appeal today’s Paris verdict. Defence lawyer Patrick Maisonneuve had claimed during the trial that neither the six leaders nor the church had gained financially from the group’s practices.

"Oscar-Winner Paul Haggis' Stunning Departure From Scientology, Accuses Leader Tommy Davis Of 'Lying' To The Public

Haggis learned that in a CNN interview, Davis had laughed off the idea that Scientology has a policy of 'disconnection.' Haggis couldn't believe he was watching Davis 'lying.' His own family had suffered from disconnection when 18 months ago, his wife, actress-turned-producer Deborah Rennard was ordered to 'disconnect' from her parents because of something Scientology officials claimed occurred when they resigned from the church 25 year ago."

Paul Haggis Cult Resignation Letter To Tommy Davis

I posted earlier about Paul Haggis resigning from the cult, and his letter to Tommy Davis. I thought I'd post it again with an easier to read link:

"These were not the claims made by outsiders looking to dig up dirt against us. These accusations were made by top international executives who had devoted most of their lives to the church. Say what you will about them now, these were staunch defenders of the church, including Mike Rinder, the churchs official spokesman for 20 years!

Tommy, if only a fraction of these accusations are true, we are talking about serious, indefensible human and civil rights violations. It is still hard for me to believe. But given how many former top-level executives have said these things are true, it is hard to believe it is all lies"

Church of Scientology defied coroner on suicide

The Church of Scientology refused to provide records demanded by a coroner investigating the death of a soldier who committed suicide two days after finishing one of the church's intensive courses.

It emerged yesterday that the American headquarters of the church instructed its Australian branch to send the soldier's "audit file" to the US -- which is outside the coroner's jurisdiction -- before warrants were issued.

Edward Alexander McBride was found electrocuted and hanged at an Energex substation at Everton Park, in Brisbane, on February 7, 2007. The soldier, who was based at Brisbane's Enoggera Barracks, was on leave from the army at the time and had been doing Scientology courses almost full-time for about a month.

Manic Depressive Episodes And Scientology

"Scientologists believe that chemical imbalances do not exist. In their view manic episodes should be treated with periods of introspection and audits; a notion which is particularly bizarre and scientifically untenable. Scientologists believe that these large swings can be controlled without chemically interfering with the brain. This is utter nonsense. Scientology claims are largely based on science fiction, claims that are highly harmful those suffering from mania or depression."

Cults and Coercion: How Ordinary People are Turned into Extraordinary Fanatics

A great audio lecture from an ex-Scientologists who now helps victims of many destructive cults:

"Twenty years ago, Paul Grosswald was recruited into the Church of Scientology during his sophomore year at Hofstra University. During six months of intense indoctrination he became increasingly drawn to the group, until he ultimately dropped out of school, moved into the cult's Manhattan compound, and signed a one billion year employment contract with Scientology's Sea Organization."

John Travolta Testifies About Son's Death, Says Jett Was Autistic

"John Travolta took the stand and testified against two defendants accused of blackmailing him following the tragic death of his son Jett earlier in the year.

'My son WAS AUTISTIC and suffered from seizure disorder. Every five to 10 days he suffered seizures which lasted 45 seconds to a minute," Travolta testified before a jury of six women and three men."

David Miscavige: Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous

From the excellent 'Leaving Scientology' Blog:

(Miscavige) pays himself a six-figure salary. And that’s without having to pay for housing, food, clothing, or transportation. That’s about forty times what the average Sea Org Member is paid. Over the last 25 years or so, he’s paid himself something like three million dollars."

Accountability: Where Does Your Money Go?

From the Leaving Scientology Blog:

"The Church, by its own newsletter figures, has regged over $140 million for the (Superpowers building) project, which is projected to cost $90 million. According to my figures, that’s $50 million unaccounted for. Fifty million dollars. Where did that $50 million go? Well, part of it, according to Joe’s reg, went to the Oak Cove renovations. Part of it, we know from that same St. Pete Times article, went for over $245,000 in city fines levied for not bringing the empty shell up to code."

Scientology's drugs message after Bray murder

"The DVD's tagline says it tells the "story of big-money drugs that fuel a $330bn psychiatric industry, without a single cure. But since its release, one professional involved with the DVD has distanced himself from the CCHR. Professor Howard Brody said that he believes anything produced by this organisation requires independent confirmation."

Scientology and "Know"

From "Ask a Scientologist":

"This word, "know", when used by a Scientologist does not mean what you think it means. When you hear a Scientologist say they know something about Scientology or the Church of Scientology, they are not saying what you think they are saying.

This can be very confusing. Let me clarify this. First, you need some basic Scientology concepts.

When Scientologists speak about knowing something, they are talking about what L. Ron Hubbard called "knowingness". Hubbard defined knowingness as "self-determined knowledge".

To say that more plainly, in Scientology, "knowingness" is what you "know" without any information, facts, evidence from outside yourself. It is what you, yourself, have decided is true.

You will note that this definition of "knowingness" would also be a perfect definition of belief.

This is not some trivial bit of Scientology, this is core Scientology dogma. This is tied to what Hubbard said about "OT" powers of "postulating". According to Hubbard, postulating is creating reality by just deciding that something exists or that something is in a certain state.

According to Hubbard, if you "postulate" something without any doubts or reservations, it must become true. This is what OT powers are all about.

And this is "knowingness". If you self-determinedly "know" something, and hold that "knowingness" without any doubts or reservations, then, according to Scientology, it will be true.

It's like telling people that, if they can hold a wish in their mind for an hour without ever thinking of pink elephants, that wish will come true.

Good luck with that.

But Scientologists believe this. And so they believe, pardon me, know that Scientology works, that everything the church says is true, that David Miscavige is the most wonderful person in the whole universe.

And they must hold this belief knowledge firmly in place without any doubts or the whole thing will fall apart!

And so you have someone who has attested to being "able to talk to anyone on any subject" -- and who obviously can't do that -- still "knowing" that Scientology works.

You have Clears -- who get sick -- who still "know" that Scientology works.

You have Scientologists, who can easily see the "OTs" around them struggling and failing in life -- still "knowing" that Scientology creates "true OTs".

Scientology true believers will put up with the most amazing abuse, broken promises, greed and fraud from the Church of Scientology -- and still "know" that the Church of Scientology is perfect and good.

Because when they say they "know" these things, it means they believe these things and they desperately hope that their belief will make it come true.

Scientology defines itself as "knowing how to know". Using the Scientology definition of "know", we can finally translate that: "Scientology: Learning how to believe".

And now you can understand what a Scientologist is actually saying when they say they "know Scientology works", and why they cannot tolerate any discussion or outside facts. They are trying not to think of pink elephants."

How Scientology Works: The Slave Becomes King

"Sometimes the greatest victims of bullying become the greatest bullies. An abused child can go either way. He may become an advocate for those who have no voice- or he may grow up to become a bully himself. This depends on who he chooses to identify with. If he identifies with the victim he will generally become a force for good in the world- but if he identifies with the bully he will become a bully himself.

Scientology ethics tends to turn people into bullies because it asks people to identify with bullies.

I will give you an example. Let us assume that a Scientologist is being picked upon by ethics or knows of somebody who is being unfairly singled out. Who is he likely to identify with? In the outside world bullying is unacceptable and so he is likely to identify with the victim and wonder what is wrong with the bully. What is the situation within Scientology? The exact opposite! The Scientologist is expected to ask why the person being bullied 'pulled it in'. In other words the mere fact that a person is bullied by another PROVES that the person being bullied is in the wrong! This is the ultimate in blame the victim. But wait! There is more! Nobody is alowed to pity those who are bullied because this is below death on the tone scale. It is literaly better to be dead than to show pity or humanity to the victim of bullying.

The result of this insanity is that Scientologists come to identify with Ethics bullies. This is entirely natural as bullies are always sure they are right and always certain of their own reality. Bullies also demonstrate Tone 40 (tantrums and shouting) while they are bullying weaker people. They are also characteristic of the Psychopath. Naturally, a good Scientologist wants to be ethical and so he is suckered into identifying with the bully- and eventually becoming one.

The basic deal within Scientology is that one can only avoid being bullied by becoming one.

This is why Scientology is never short of bullies- and why nobody stands up to them."

New Marty Rathbun Letter To Bert Fields

A new letter from Marty Rathbun in reply to Tom Cruise's lawyer, Bertram Fields:

"Miscavige informed all of the members of International management that he had been telling Cruise all about how suppressive Yager, Leserve, and Mithoff had been to Miscavige personally. He told the executives that he had told Cruise how all other members of management were suppressive to Miscavige too because they refused to beat Yager, Leserve and Mithoff to pulps in defense of Miscavige’s honor. Miscavige said that Tom, as his best friend and most trusted confidante, had vowed to come to the Hole and personally “beat the living shit” out of Yager, Leserve, and Mithoff if the managers failed to do so themselves. Miscavige said that if they didn’t show evidence that they had acted, they all would be bypassed the next day by Cruise. The tantrum was accompanied by the usual ill-tempered and sadistic threats to the executives detailing what would become of them if Tom had to do “their job.”

John Travolta & Kelly Preston, What Will Their Future Hold?

An excellent article by "Queen" over at

"One of Hollywood’s big questions right now is whether John Travolta is having serious doubts about Scientology. Added to that question now is his future with wife Kelly Preston. They are having a very difficult time dealing with the loss of their son Jett who passed away this past January. I don’t think anyone ever gets over a death of someone that is near and dear to their hearts, and healing from a tragedy such as this can prove to be both exhausting and devastating.It is especially hard to function after a death if you are always under the microscope of paps and fans. But that is part of the package deal of being famous."

For whom does Bert Field Work?

Marty Rathbun receives another letter from Tom Cruise's attorney:

Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger LLP
August 26, 2009
Marty Rathbun

Dear Marty:

I am out of the country on a family vacation, but I did want to respond to your letter.

As I think you know, I represent Tom Cruise, not David Miscavige or the Church of Scientology. My letter to you was soley to protect Tom’s rights, not to deal with whatever issues you may have with Mr. Miscavige or the Church.

So far as Tom is concerned, I will repeat what I said before. It is neither appropriate nor lawful for you to refer to yourself online, in the media or elsewhere as Tom’s auditor. I would like to avoid taking action over this, so please stop.

I am not going to respond to your accusations about David Miscavige. Personally, I have never seen him even hint of the behavior you attribute to him. Our conversations have always been civil and respectful. He does appear to be a strong champion of the Church and its values. But that is not only his job, it is his life.

I know from what Mike Rinder has said that Mr. Miscavige, in effect, saved the Church when he cleaned house in the 80’s.

In any event, whatever your issues may be, I hope you can solve them.


Bertram Fields"


More interesting was the accompanying comment from one Jason Beghe:

"I was in the front row at AOLA when TC personally thanked Marty for delivering him his NOTS. I was on turnabout with TC as Martys other PC for over a month. I even coached TC through some meter drills on his OT VI. Am I now in some legal jepordy for having publicly stated this?"

Of course, as every on the lines Scientologist knows, Beghe is an insane liar being paid by Anonymous :)

How Scientology Works - The Body Snatchers

"Hubbard never did like human beings very much- too unreliable. His ideal was always some sort of super powerful robot 'well oiled, shimmering with power.'

Divine Dishonesty: Cracks in my Belief System

"My thinking, as a scientologist, had been limited within a vast series of written rules and regulations, procedures, etc, written by L Ron Hubbard. The scriptures of scientology if you like. If I got sick, there was a formula to follow. If I got upset, there was a procedure to follow. If something wasn’t going right in my life, I’d jump into the Hubbard books and find a suitable scripture to sort it out."

Scientology: Crisis in France

"It claims to be one of the world's fastest-growing new religions but a battery of legal cases threaten its very existence in this secular country.

Le Berre, 21, keeps the machine as a memento of his mother's life. Four days before Christmas 2006, Gloria Lopez, a 47-year-old secretary, tidied her kitchen, hung out her washing, left her dull, suburban apartment overlooking the railway in Colombes, west of Paris, and walked the 30 metres out on to the tracks. She stood with her arms outstretched, smiling at the driver of the oncoming commuter train. He couldn't stop in time."

Rathbun Emails Tom Cruise's Attorney For a Second Time

Marty Rathbun fires off another email to TC's attorney:

"NUDGE - August 27, 2009


Having not heard a word in reply to my letter of August 12 (sent by email to you Aug 12) in response to your letter of August 7 (sent by email to me on Aug 10) I am left to wonder whether you acted upon my suggestion on how to handle my letter and its referenced webpage links vis a vis your client.

Should I not hear anything from you by noon Tuesday August 18, I will proceed under the assumption you and your client ignored my suggestion and are instead working on a coordinated defense of Miscaviges conduct.

A must-read open letter from Marty Rathbun to Tom Cruise's attorney:

"Top Gun and Hired Gun put on notice - August 26, 2009"

Even more accusations against Miscavige, out there, in the open, and STILL Slappy doesn't sue! The most litigious, vengeful cult in the entire universe and yet Slappy just bends over and takes it up the you-know-what! We all know why that is of course (we'll those of us that aren't afraid to doubt that is!).

What else is interesting is that Tom Cruise's own attorney also corroborates the fact that Rathbun WAS TC's auditor, AND is trained to audit, despite what the lying bastard Miscavige had to say in Freedom magazine's bullshit about Rathbun.

My Perspective On Auditing

A great write up on auditing and the OT levels by former Scientologist and OT7 Stacy Brooks. Though this item is nine years old now, it should be required reading for any anti-Scientology critic.

"through the process ofauditing as I have described, these people have been stripped of all sense of themselves; they have lost all sense of responsibility - indeed, all contact with their own emotions, their own thoughts, even their own hopes and aspirations."

Young Boys Are Still Her Weakness

Another "celebrity" putting up a weak defence for Hubbard's gay-hating ways:

Why am I always reading about Scientology helping its adherent's "fight adversity"? Normal people don't have constant battles with adversity. I would imagine that submitting one's mind to Hubbard's horse shit probably necessitates one's need to fight adversity with increasing frequency.

It's like the "Scientology saved my life" crap we're constantly being bombarded with by the hate group apologists. Most normal, stable people don't need their lives saving. If, at a weak & desperate moment in a person's life they find a cult promising Heaven & Earth and most importantly, friendship & comfort, is it any wonder people are so easily hooked and conned?

Tip: Just because you have people pretending to be your friends, it doesn't stop the organisation from being a human rights abusing hate group. Lets see how long friends love you for if you ever decide to blow the cult.

Greg & Debra Barnes (ex Scns) Interview

I missed this upload from Mark Bunker of, posted in June of this year, maybe you did too? Two ex-Scientologists, Greg & Debra Barnes, on OTVII when they left the church, in a one hour, 20 minute interview. I recommend all Scientologists who are not afraid to, watch this:

One of the last statements near the end of the video was well observed, "What are you doing in a church that you're afraid of?"

You can read Greg & Debra's knowledge report (very interesting) here on Mark's Blog:

Geir Isene: "When I met David Miscavige"

"The real two year research with 1,5 hours of Internet reading and forum lurking as daily average didnt start until the summer next year. It got priority when the Director of Special Affairs of Oslo Org asked if I could check something for him on the Internet. He told me that some journalist was about to write some fiction about David Miscavige beating his staff. It turned out it was not so fictitious after all. I checked and cross checked, fact checked and analyzed. When Tommy Davis seriously botched his rebuttal of the SP Times articles, I knew it was over for me as a member. I spent a couple of weeks to write down my conclusions. The rest is on this blog. David Miscavige: You cannot escape honest observations."

Tom Cruise, Your Auditor Certs Should Be Cancelled

Tom Cruise, you knew Marc Headley on a personal level and I'm sure you bonded with him while auditing on the Academy Levels. I'm sure you saw that Marc had gains and enjoyed being your pc. You also knew that Marc was a staff member at the Int Base and had been raised in Scientology. So how does it make you feel now to see your pc upset about the fact that he got majorly screwed by Scientology to the point where he's been all over the media and is now suing your so-called "Church" into oblivion? From your own experiences with Marc, do you really think he'd go to this extent to lie about what he's claimed? Even when there are many others who are making the same claims he is making? Do some soul searching.

Do you remember the Scientology Tech about how an SP does not make case gain? Well, you audited Marc personally, so I'm sure you know he makes case gain - so either you falsified your auditing reports to complete your Levels or, per the HCOB above (your own Tech) you missed withholds and need a retrain - Certs Cancelled.

I can't imagine what's going on in your head right now knowing that your own pc could be the world's biggest SP. Not quite in the History Books yet Tommy Boy. You had the biggest SP in the world right in front of you on the cans, and not even YOU could handle him. Aren't you the authority on the mind? Aren't you the only one who can really do something about it? Think about it

The Church of Scientology Implodes

"Already we saw churches closing, excused as "combining" with nearby churches, but now we are seeing churches actually disappearing, closing their doors.

Already we were seeing the membership numbers drastically dropping, and every day, newly out ex-Scientologists are telling their stories, getting in touch with old friends.

Already we were seeing the "formidable" attack machinery of the church falling apart, failing. But, today, they have so few trusted staff that they can no longer fight more than one battle at a time -- and they have so many more than one battle today."

It appears there are some INVESTIGATIONS going on to find ANYONE who is DISAFFECTED. And.......who knows where THAT will lead? Pull the string and find SP!"


Hubbard The Coward

I don't think there's any sane person on the entire planet that doesn't know that LRH was a liar and a very accomplished one at that. When LRH was in charge, if the church lied, abused, or in any other way did thing unethical, you can bet your bottom dollar Hubbard knew about it or was behind it. Like the current COB, he was a cowardly bastard who could never take responsibility for his mistakes AND crimes.

Hubbard ran away from the law on numerous occasions, and when the possibility was that he might not be able to, he would let other people take the fall for him, like his own friggin' wife for God's sake! What a cowardly sack-of-shit he really was. Sorry, but as unpleasant as some might think I'm being, Hubbard was cowardly dishonest scum of the highest order. That's a fact.

Hubbard himself admitted it was perfectly acceptable to lie to people. In fact, he put it down in writing. I don't think I need tell you what that document was, and that it is still in effect today.

Abusing Civil Rights

"In addition to violating and abusing its own members' civil rights, the organization over the years with its 'fair game' doctrine has harassed and abused those persons not in the church whom it perceives as enemies."

Scientolgy: An Enterprise To Extract Money

"[The court record is] replete with evidence [that Scientology] is nothing in reality but a vast enterprise to extract the maximum amount of money from its adepts by pseudo scientific theories... and to exercise a kind of blackmail against persons who do not wish to continue with their sect.... The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid, and this bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder, L.Ron Hubbard."

E-Meter debate

Warning: VERY long thread!

Scientology is socially harmful

"The government is satisfied that Scientology is socially harmful. It alienates members of families from each other and attributes squalid and disgraceful motives to all who oppose it; its authoritarian principles and practice are a potential menace to the personality and well being of those so deluded as to become followers; above all, its methods can be a serious danger to the health of those who submit to them... There is no power under existing law to prohibit the practice of Scientology; but the government has concluded that it is so objectionable that it would be right to take all steps within its power to curb its growth."

Geir Isen's doubt formula

I also refer to those current Scientologists so inclined, to read the recently departed OTVIII Geir Isen's doubt formula, and pay particular attention to section 1.2:

There are too many Scientologists repeating similar stories for them all to be lies. They are not all being paid millions of dollars from the media, the big pharma, or the NWO! Just how many more ex Scientologists speaking out will it take before you sit up and take notice? Will you ever run out of excuses for your criminal organisation? Is over 500 ex Scientolgists not enough? What is enough? 1,000? 10,000? 50,000?

Is Geir another treasonous, money-grabbing, fame-seeking, villain, being paid by the big pharmas?!

I was reading the cringe worthy to gather a bit of data and noticed a line there that has either been added since I was there last, or I missed it on previous visits:

"Something not generally known is that, among other things, Mary Sue helped Ron to coin the word 'Scientology'."

Erm, no, she didn't. As is usual with LRH's thieving ways, he took the word Scientology from another source. The word "Scientology" was originally coined by the philologist Alan Upward back in 1907 as a synonym for "pseudo-science". How apt :)
