Anyone with first hand knowledge scientology child abuse

Post by ElronBlubbard » Fri Jan 27, 2006 5:36 am

And this is the only way Oprah will do a show on the mind control cult of scientology.

Post your first hand accounts here, get together, let's compose a letter to her and pass it around and sign it and send it off to oprah, ex cult members needed to go on the oprah show.

I know it’s a long shot but somebody has to start a post.

Or post in these threads which Tim, serenitynow and nunya initiated...

I want to ask that some of the members of the XSO group who raised children in the Sea Org, or saw teenagers in the RPF or knew about the lack of family time and education of our kids come forward with their stories.

These young adults deserve our support. We let them down once, let's be there for them now.

Alot of them grew up with no extended family, and in many cases their parents are still in the SO, so they are alone in the world, often with no skills, family, Drivers Liscence or knowledge of the real world.

These are the true victims, and true survivors of the CULT of scientology.

I agree with Ladybird, ex S.O.ers are probably the best sources for child abuse witnesses in $cn.

Next would be former staffers of missions, orgs, celeb ctrs, etc.

As time moves on, more and more 2nd and 3rd generation scienos (kids now adults) are defecting by the dozens and dozens. I've met some of them through meetings.

I personally have witnessed squaller, filth, and neglect in $cn org child care facilities. Also talked with kids (now adults) who were subject to family DISCONNECTION and thus being deprived of normal and healthy relationships with fathers, mothers, siblings, grandparents, and other extented family members.

Hubbard wrote in his book CHILD DIANETICS -- Processing of Children; "Grandparents [relatives] should not be allowed into the home untill they learn how to behaved themselves dianetically!" To me that's abusive to children to grow up without a normal family because
of Hubtoad's weird paranoid BS and directives.

I'm sure I'll be able to help in some areas (other letter writing campaigns, etc.) but since I was never in the Sea Org I have never witnessed first hand abuse. However, I have a favor to anyone who picks up the baton on this one. Can we include stories about the Sea Org also? That report of the young deaf and dumb child who was put down in the chain locker of a ship by Ron until she (or he) learned to write her name - I would like that story placed in front of Oprah. That story absolutely broke my heart. To this day I wonder and worry about what ever happened to that child.

"In 1968 [onboard the ship, Royal Scotsman] Hubbard's Ethics was put into
action with the chain-locker punishment. A chain-locker is 'a dark hole where
the anchor chains are stored; cold, wet and rats,' to quote one ex-Sea Org
officer. The lockers are below the steering in the bowels of the ship. A tiny
manhole gives access, and they are unlit. When a crew member was in a low
enough Ethics Condition, he or she would be put in a chain-locker for up to two

"John McMaster says a small child, perhaps five years old, was once consigned
to a chain-locker. He says she was a deaf mute, and that Hubbard had assigned
her an Ethics Condition for which the formula is 'Find out who you really are.'
She was not to leave the chain-locker until she completed the formula by
writing her name. McMaster says Hubbard came to him late one night in some
distress and asked him to let the child out. He did, cursing Hubbard [all] the
while. Another witness claims that a three-year-old was once put in the

"Another Ethics Condition had the miscreant put into 'old rusty tanks, way
below the ship, with filthy bilge water, no air and hardly sitting height. . .
for anything from twenty-four hours to a week . . . getting their oxygen via
tubes, and with Masters-at-Arms [Ethics Officers] checking outside to hear if
the hammering continued. Food was occasionally given in buckets,' according to
a former Sea Org executive.

"The miscreants were kept awake, often for days on end. They ate from the
communal food bucket with their blistered and filthy hands. They chipped away
at the rust unceasingly. As another witness has tactfully put it, ' there were
no bathroom facilities.'

"It is difficult to comprehend the stoicism with which some Scientologists
suffered the Ethics Conditions. It is remarkable even to many
ex-Scientologists. It is even more remarkable that most Scientologists have
probably never heard of the chain-locker, bilge tank or over-boarding
punishments. Scientologists were used to Hubbard's auditing techniques, where
they did not question the reasoning behind a set of commands, but simply
answered or carried them out.

"Most Sea Org members accepted these bizarre practices out of devotion to
Hubbard. It is impossible to add to these stark details a convincing picture
of Hubbard's charisma. The Sea Org saw themselves as the elite, the chosen
few, who would return life after life to rejoin their leader..."

This has been tried before. Oprah is in denial about Scientology and has probably instructed her team to trash any entheta sent to her.

She has her own good causes, don't waste your time on this.
