Thanks, Caroline, for clearing the weird ideas about raising children ElRon had.
Also, scientology is (to my knowledge at least) the only belief-system that states that the age of the child is not that important. The body may be under age, the thetan is millions of years old and perfectly able to consent to sex with an adult.
Every other culture and religion that I know of has some "age of consent" for sex. The opinions differ on what that age is, but a border between "old enough" and "to young" is, and has always been, set.
Scientology doesn't really care about this age of consent, since the thetan is old enough anyway. Most scientologists are not pedophiles and don't molest children because they don't want to, they don't feel attracted to them in that way.
The part of the small group that would want to have sex with minors but doesn't do it, refrains from doing so out of fear for legal consequences and the damage to their social status in case of getting caught. It's not their religion that stops them, it's wog laws and moral standards.
The predatory minority that feels invincible or just doesn't care about consequences gets confirmed, through LRH's opinions, that there is nothing wrong with them, because children are just adult thetans in little bodies. That means they are "fair game"(pun intended) for sexual exploitation. The feeling of guilt, of having sinned against God, that a Catholic priest will have after molesting his altar-boy, is absent in the child-molesting scientologist.
Most people presume every normal parent, specially every mother, will try to protect her child from those that molest him/her.
Unfortunately that is not always the case. Many women choose for their partner and the emotional and financial stability of their marriage over the safety of their children. This happens in every culture and religion. The child that tells the mother then gets punished for "trying to ruin her relationship" or "being selfish" or "being a slut that goes after her mother's man". So the victim gets victimized again, this time by the person that should protect her/him above all else.
In scientology this will happen even more often than elsewhere, because:
*emotional ties between parents and children are systematically flattened by the tech,
*the victim is supposed to have pulled the abuse in,
*children are grown thetans in little bodies, and
*the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics is what counts.
The last one means in this case that keeping your mouth shut as a mother of an abuse-victim will protect your family and your church, victimizing "only" your child.
Going to the police means that social services gets involved, nasty questions will be asked, your marriage will go sour, you won't be able to buy as many courses to progress along the bridge, your church will get negative publicity and won't be able to clear the planet anytime soon etcetera. If you don't want to play ball Jan Eastgate or a professional like her will drop by at your house and tell you the evil psychs will come to take your kid and submit it to even worse abuse and it will all be your fault because YOU WOULDN'T KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!
The victim will basically be told the same; They'll take you away from home, your father will go to prison, your mother will hate you, the psychs will torture you and the Planet-Clearing will be delayed thanks to you, because YOU INSIST ON MAKING THESE CRAZY ALLEGATIONS!
And what does a properly brainwashed clam do in such a case? Clam up. The greatest good....
I know, it's pathetic and enraging.
But that's the way it goes.
