All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

Long time critic, her scientologist son disconnected from her.
Ida's son went into "The Church of Scientology" years ago, when there was no Internet, and really very little written about Scientology.
Ida basically lost her son, who "Disconnected" from her as she was "Antagonistic" to C of S, or so they say. Ida is merely someone who disagrees with their group and it's way of isolating people, such as her son. She wasn't "Antagonistic" to start, but after years of they doing things to her — when I left, I told them that "you CREATE your own enemies!" and they do! — she's learned a lot from them.
Many people... especially back then... left but said very little, or if they lost their family members, not knowing what to do, they just suffered in silence. I've spoken with people as such.
However, there was one Mom I speak of today who said, "Not on MY watch!" and that Mom was Ida. (Let me clarify that: I'm SURE there are more, and please let me say Happy Mother's Day to each Mom who also helped in this!)
Ida started writing to Senators, Congressmen, and basically has spent years getting the word out on this destructive Cult.
Ida is smart, fun, and very loving. She is a wonderful Mom. She cares greatly, and the only person who has lost here in this picture is really her son. Ida has stood up for what she believes, and has told many people about it. As a result, Scientology (C of S) has run a consistent "hate campaign" against her, practicing their "Fair Game" by trying to get her to "Shut up". Ida has persisted, when most would have given up.
Ida has been a great friend/Mom to me and many others. I know I do not stand alone in thanking Ida for her love, care and courage to speak out, when few would.
We'll never know just how many people Ida has helped, but I know personally it's WAY more than many Mothers.
On this Mother's Day, may you smile knowing this, Mom: I love you, and I know tons others who say the same.
I'm proud of you. I thank you. I wish you the Happiest of Mother's Days!!
Lovingly, Tory Christman
I doubt if we will ever cross paths again. He has me as a Suppressive person and there are no changes to see that will change. I will continue to do what I can to expose this group and their gains in our government.
My friendship goes to all the other disconnected parents who I know have broken hearts such as mine. I know of those who are recently "disconnected" and it is truly painful however, they as I have, will survive. Keep busy and be surrounded with true friends and other sps.
Dear Ida Camburn,
Thank you for your very detailed letter regarding Scientology. We haven't yet found a way to attack these jackals who feed on children and young adults who are too emotionally weak to stand by themselves when they reach the age of consent.
It's too bad there isn't a 20th Century Charles Dickens to write about the terrible destruction of these 20th Century fagins who make themselves rich while they destroy the psyche of so many. At the present time, I can only encourage you to do more of what you have been doing.
