A clergyman looks
at J. Gordon Melton on Scientology
|«Page 20: Melton comments on reported abuses taking
place in Scientology and states that the charges of
abuse have not been substantiated when presented in
courts of justice, and we are left with a lack of
verified evidence of any invasion of members'
files or invasion of their privacy. No mention of the
Wollerseheim case which was working its way through the
courts and which ended in Scientology paying him over $8
million in damages for the abuse he suffered at their
hands. And I have had people state to me that they were
held against their will for months when they stated they
wished to leave. They were only allowed to do so after
signing statements which in effect
silenced them from
ever speaking about the church.»

Flag, extreme predicaments of Sea Org life
|«While I was at
there was a time when there was a "cluster" of accidents,
including some "accidental" deaths and this created a big flap.
(They are on the "whyaretheydead"
site already.) My husband and I were in a minor accident during
this time. Of course this was a big ethics cycle, and I was told
it was MY PTS situation
with my family that caused my husband to be hurt, and that he
did not want to see me and we were to be separated. I was very
upset and did not believe it, and was very worried about him.
Late one night 2 security guards 8Ced (forced) me into a car and
took me to our berthing to get my things. While out front, 2
other guards came out of our room holding my husband by both
arms. I could see he was very upset and I tried to get out of
the car to go to him, but was physically restrained, and one
guard held his hand over my mouth to keep me quiet because I was
yelling, while the other held me down because I was kicking the
door trying to get out. We did not talk about this for a long
time, but it turns out they had told him that I didn't want to
see him!!! This broke my heart and his for a long time, even
though later we got back together.»
