The SeaOrg is Not A Religious Order

Mike Rinder has an excellent blog post discussing the SeaOrg and it’s “religious retreat” ship, Freewinds. In his post he refers to the SeaOrg as “a paramilitary organization that runs scientology in accordance with Hubbard’s policies and directives.” —https://www.mikerindersblog.org/the-real-story-of-the-freewinds/ My post is not in any way a challenge or refutation of Mike’s. He spent his […]

The Ethics of Scientology

“L. Ron Hubbard defined ethics as ‘reason and the contemplation of optimum survival.’ He has also pointed out: ‘Dishonest conduct is non-survival. Anything is unreasonable or evil which brings about the destruction of individuals, groups, or inhibits the future of the race.’” Further, in his book Introduction to Scientology Ethics he writes “Ethics actually consists […]

He leads with a simplistic history lesson as an analogy in order to lay a foundation […]

Scientology’s Forked Tongue

On February 25th, 2019 Edward Parkin posted a blog entry stamped “For Immediate Release”. The apparent urgency was for STAND League to announce that “STAND Condemns Rise of Anti-Semitism in France.” —https://www.standleague.org/news/stand-condemns-rise-of-anti-semitism-in-france.html According to upi.com, this anti-Semitic desecration is one incident of many in a 74% increase in anti Jewish hate crimes in France since […]

Running Blindly into the Darkness

In my short, curt discussion with Reverend L’Heureux earlier he admitted that he did not know very much about Scientology. All he was concerned with was its “Religious Liberty”. Further, he dismissed those of us who are fighting against this cult and trying to bring healing and justice to the victims of its teachings and […]

Hubbard’s Policy of Using People

L. Ron Hubbard designed a policy to enable Scientology to align with, and use, legitimate groups and/or people as camouflage. The example used in this directive is the issue of Mental Health, however it is clear that this policy is used for any situation where Scientology needs their agenda furthered but either cannot do it […]
