pages accessible trough
Please bear with me while I try to put my motives and feelings
into words. I am not known to be a great writer and English
isn't my first language. It isn't easy to formulate my gut
feelings, just the mere notice that Scientology is "bad" won't
do if I want to offer you a glimpse into my motives. Try it for
yourself. I find it hard, very hard to do if I want to make a
well reasoned focused argument, leaving many other immoral
concepts of Scientology aside. I don't know where this little
exploration will end and how it ultimately will look, so lets
just start.» — Mike Gormez
Deaths at Flag: why are they dead Scientology?
On December 5, 1995, Lisa McPherson died.
Scientology had held her against her will for 17 days.
During that time, she tried to leave, became violent, and
refused to eat. At the time of her death, she had bruises
and abrasions on her body, and she had lost over 30 pounds
in just 17 days. [...]
An autopsy report lists
[Josephus Havenith] death as "probable drowning" but notes that
his head was not under water. He died in February 1980 at
the Scientology Fort Harrison Hotel in a bathtub filled with
water so hot it had burned his skin off.
Stop Wise: World
Institute of Scientology Enterprises = Recruitment Vehicle for
Mike Gormez organized these web pages
because he feels that "religious" organizations should be
honest with their members about their true goals, and
businesses should be honest about religious connections with
their clients and employees. Trust is vital when doing
business. A check of a dozen or so Scientology front groups
in the US, such as the Citizen's Commission on Human Rights
(CCHR), Narconon or its management consultants arm, World
Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE), reveal that
their main statement of purpose, filed with the IRS (US tax
authority), indicates the group's main purpose is to
proselytize Scientology. The Organization has numerous
facades and front groups, many of which flat out deny their
connection to Scientology. Many suspect this is so because
if its doctrine and practices were revealed to the "raw
meat" (Scientologese for potential recruit) they would run
away and never come back.
A defector tells how a
management/consultancy group's employees were told to keep
the connection a secret. Persons like Larry Wollersheim,
Shiona Fox-Ness, Tory Bezazian (now Tory Christman), Greg
Barnes (fourth video), chiropractor Ed Hattaway, who alleges
World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE) and
Scientology destroyed his life, architect Lawrence Woodcraft
in Los Angeles, and Michael P. Pattinson are but an example
of those who have had businesses hurt by Scientology. Julie
Richard was employed in a medical office and told how a
scientologist wanted access to patient files so he could see
which ones were likely candidates for Scientology
There is too much disparity to uphold the integrity of an
organization that allows its employees (eg. management
consultants) to tell clients that their material is secular
and non-religious, and then turn around and among themselves
talk freely about "Routing Clients onto the Bridge" (Scientologese
for increasing membership in Scientology). Or are quoting
Scientology scriptures ( What we expect of a Scientologist)
in World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE)
Do you really want to give these people your money and
access to your company, or worse, let Scientology decide who
to hire and fire ? Educate yourself on Scientology before
you decide it's just a harmless cult. [...]
Scientology & Dianetics: Tax-exempt Child Abuse and Neglect?
A witness testified: And I was
called in to help to audit this little boy because I had a
good reputation as an auditor. So, I went there and I found
this little boy. He had a hundred and five fever. He was
unable to move his head and his neck. . . And I went there
with my E-Meter and I had this little boy pick up the cans,
he was too weak to hold the cans. So, I-- just didn't do it.
I said, "This child is too sick to receive auditing. I think
he should go to a doctor." The Medical Officer said, "Well"
-- he had a medical book in which he looked up certain
things. And he said, "I don't feel that he's in any danger.
We'll see how he is tomorrow."
Cover up of pedophile child sexual abuse by Scientologists
A Scientologist by the name of Donald Anthony
Strawn, also known as Tony Strawn, was convicted in 1995 to
thirty years in prison for sexually molesting two girls, ages 11
and 13. The children were in his custodial care at the time.
Scientology directed (under threat of expulsion) that the mother
not report the incident
to the proper authorities, because
the church could "handle" his "aberration".
One little baby I knew in the Sea Org got
herpes during a Cadet Org epidemic. A 14 year old girl
disclosed to me how she and a few other little girls were
leaving the Cadet Org in the daytime and performing sexual
services for one of the girl's uncles in exchange for money.
A man who worked in the Cadet Org admitted he was sexually
molesting the children. Although these incidents were
written up, as far as I know they were never "handled."
