Remind me to tell you about it sometime.
This is a story as told to me by an exscientologist:
She had been having alot of problems with recounting her ordeal as a scientologist, due to disconnection there were a lot of family she had no idea of the exsistance of, as she had been disconnected from family most of her life.So on this particular day she finds an e-mail in her in box saying :
Hi, I think we are sisters, I've been reading some stuff on the internet and the names and timeline all add up. I would like to get in contact, here is my phone number. I have no interest in being in contact with my parents but siblings is different. I understand if you would rather not, but I think it would be a good idea.
Well, this exscientologist was besides herself as it was only a little while previously that she had learnt the name of this sister and suddenly out of the blue this sister is trying to make contact.She had to think really long and hard about whether or not it was a good idea to make contact, as she was having a really hard time of it, years and years of no family and suddenly they were popping up out of the woodworks right and left.She figured what did she have to loose, so phoned the sister. They got on really well in this one long phone conversation, but the sister told the exscientologist some things that although put some light on some things that had been bothering her and was unable to get any headway in accounting for in the past totally devastated her aswell.
It was told to her that her Father upon leaving Scientology had started up another family, although they didn't actually live together for some time, as things were tough, trying to find work and having very little money. The Father lived in a slum in London, which eventually everyone got evicted from.On at least one occasion Seas Org officers turned up to collect a lot of money which was owed as a freeloaders bill.The Fathers girlfriend had a baby which was adopted. The Father and girlfriend got married but were only married a few days when the new wife dissappeared, never to be heard of again.
The new girlfriend was the Mother of the sister, by all accounts both the Father and the Mother were very damaged people but for very different reasons.One had been heavily indoctrinated as both a Scientologist and a Sea Org member and the other had a very strict upbringing in the Catholic chuch and also had a very abusive and alcoholic Father.What a combination.
The sister dosn't recollect much about her Father, but the Mother says the Father was very paronoid much of the time.He did not like any of his possessions to be moved, he got quite distraught if the Mother tried to move them. The Father also had a big thing about perfumes and went as far as to not allow the Mother to buy any toiletries including soap.The Father also had an obsession that the Mother was seeing someone else behind his back. She swears this was not the case, but he was obsessed. One night in a violent row, the Father beat the living daylights out of the Mother with a hobnailed boot according to the Mother. There was blood every where, all up the walls. The Police came but the Mother refused to press charges as long as the Father left.Which he did.
The sister says many years later when they were redecorating the room where the vicious assault took place, upon stripping the wallpaper off of the walls, there were blood stains all over the walls, which the sister questioned her Mother about, as previously the Mother had never talked about it.
After this phone conversation with the sister, the exscientologist was extremely upset.It preyed on her mind for ages, especially in light of what she already knew.The exscientologist told the sister that as far as she was concerned the Father had never been violent in any capacity prior to being indoctrinated with L. Ron Hubbards Scientology and his Sea Organization, and at times he had worked quite closely with Hubbard. His head was messed up beyond comprehension.
The sister then sent an e-mail suggesting that the exscientologist talkes to the sisters Mother and gave a phone number, also saying she had lost the exscientologists phone numbers.The exscientologist phoned the Mother and had a long conversation, which was quite bizarre to say the least.The Mother told the exscientologist some extrordinary things and then when the exscien told the Mother what she knew, the Mother said "thats why he was so caved in".
The Mother then went on to say "Has your Father got life insurance?" the Exscien was quite taken aback and said she had no idea. The Mother then went on to insist that the exscien got life insurance for her Father.
For the rest of that week the Exscientologist kept trying to phone the sister but no one answered the phone. Then on the last attempt, the phone line was dead.She attempted to phone several more times but the line was deffinitely dead.
The exscientologist was then left wondering what the hell was that all about, and was extremely upset.
I'll let you come to your own conclusions, I wonder if they are the same as mine.
Look at our brokenness.
We know that in all Creation
Only the human family
Has strayed from the sacred way.
Teach us love,compassion,honour
That we may heal the earth
And heal each other.(part of an Ojibway prayer)
