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.

Tom Padgett was a Scientologist who simply lost faith in the organization. He walked away from the belief system, however his wife stayed. At the dissolution of his marriage, the Church of Scientology deemed him a "Suppressive Person" and church operatives began a campaign of harassment. That harassment continues today.
One piece of evidence that stands out like a huge sore thumb is, for the past 10 plus years, not once has any so-called minister of the Church of Scientology ever come forth to try to "help" sort things out with our protracted family and perceived legal issues. I have spoke with priests, rabbis, and reverends from mainline faiths, as well as psychologists, psychiatrists, medical doctors, sociologists, etc. Again, NEVER has an official with the scientology entity stepped forward with a helping hand. That's like a big loud bell ringing.

Consequently, I cannot say with certainty who the perpetrators were. One incident, however, strongly indicates that perpetrators were Scientologists. In the police report filed after Mr. Padgett found that items inside his garage had been vandalized, the officer stated, "written on the newspaper sheet in print were the words, 'SHUT THE FUCK UP'" [underlines in original report]. The underlined letters, 'SP' are the same as 'suppressive person,' which has very definite meaning in Scientology.
First of all, I would assert that Frank Ofman is simply following in a robotic fashion the L. Ron Hubbard public relations manual given to all heads and executives of Scientology missions, churches, organizations and celebrity centers in the event any media poke their noses into the group's secret beliefs, teachings, policies and practices.
Ofman says Scientology is a bona fide, benign and mainstream religion. Nothing could be further from the truth. [...]
