The originals of the videos that my daughters, Astra and Zoe,
and I made for the
are now with Scientology. This makes me want to puke.
These videos detail the horror that my two daughters were put
through by Scientology when they were members of the
The price that they have paid for their honesty, and their
desire to warn others to avoid the unbelievable lies,
manipulation and abuse they were subjected to, is that they are
now victims of the single most evil aspect of Scientology, their
Disconnection means that if you are a Scientologist who is
connected to someone who is
critical of Scientology, has ever attacked Scientology, in a
newspaper, online or just verbally in some way, then you must
never see or speak to that person again, or you will be
disconnected from. It doesn't matter if this person is your
child, spouse or friend. If you don't disconnect, you will be
disconnected from. This is all as per the written policies of
L. Ron Hubbard.
They are permanently disconnected from their mother Leslie
Woodcraft (watched Lisa
Mcpherson, when she was being held against her will in
Clearwater), grandmother Daphne Farrow (in the Sea Org. at Flag
and 80 years old so they will never see her alive again, or even
know when she dies), brother Matthew Woodcraft (in the S.O. in
In better days, Bob and
Stacy invited us to speak at the Leo J Ryan conference in
Cleveland. I was staggered to discover that every cult
discussed, operates the policy of disconnection. The
Hari Krishna, all of them. It is the basic element of
control for these cults, as it homes in on RAW HUMAN EMOTION.
There is nothing more important than family, for most normal
people. Their WHOLE life is shaped by caring for their family.
That here in the USA, Scientology is allow to operate its
pathetic policy of disconnection to control and manipulate, is a
DISGRACE. That it is recognized as a religion is a pathetic
Anyway, on mother's day my two daughter's were in a funk.
They know that they will never talk to their Mother, Grandmother
or Brother again, they don't even know how to contact them. They
haven't seen them in nearly two years, since the proverbial hit
the fan. When they tried to call them at the Sea Organizations
where they work, their calls were not forwarded. They have long
since given up any attempt at getting through, as a waste of
Their last meeting with their mother was in LA in 2000. Janet
Weiland (OSA operative)
showed up. They were trying to stop Astra doing the
article for the San Francisco Times. Janet Weiland made a
pathetic statement that she was trying to prevent the family
from being broken up. We all got into a shouting match at The
House of Pies (a restaurant close to their complex) in LA.
Leslie promised Astra and Zoe that she would never disconnect
from them and her granddaughter Kate (now aged 3). Soon after,
OSA must have realized that we were in contact with the LMT.
Leslie vanished from LA and Astra and Zoe have never heard from
Their "crimes" are to have agreed to make the videos with the
LMT, and a couple of newspaper articles. Basically, they told
the truth about their gruesome experiences with the "Church." I
can tell you that the effect on them is devastating. Get them
counseling, I hear you say. That will help, for sure, but the
fact must be faced, that they will never ever speak to Leslie,
Daphne and Matthew again, and that is devastating. In reality
they are in grieving mode, as their family members are now in
effect DEAD. And how do Leslie, Daphne and Matthew feel. They
are being so totally controlled by the Cult, who knows?
This emotion devastation is for what? If your country is at
war or there are terrorist attacks, sacrifices have to be made.
But this disconnection policy is being used to further a
BULLSHIT SCIENCE FICTION CULT whose highest intellectual
achievement is their claim that we are all possessed by
dead space aliens.
