Témoignage d'une enfant "messagère" du gourou Hubbard: Tonya Burden

http://scientologie.fraude.free.fr/06/aff-tonya-burden.htm

Vers le 3 Mars 1973, alors que j'avais treize ans, mon père et ma mère furent recrutés en scientologie. J'ai moi-même été recrutée en scientologie par Billy Kohn et j'ai signé mon contrat d'un milliard d'années à la Sea Org (Organisation Maritime, "l'élite" de la secte, ndt) vers la même date.../...

La fille d’un cadre supérieur de scientologie et son père  témoignent

http://www.antisectes.net/enf-erlich.htm

Les abus dont je voudrais témoigner ici sont ceux dont j'ai été témoin : les abus mentaux et spirituels qui sont perpétrés sur les enfants élévés dans l'environnement de la secte.

Mes 4 enfants ont subi les pratiques dont j'ai parlé et si Dieu le veut, ils seront un jour libérés de l'influence destructrice de la scientologie dans leurs vies.

Familles détruites, divorces à répétition : c’est la scientologie (Ariane Jacquier Jackson)

http ://www.antisectes.net//tristepasse.htm

extraits :

  • 3/ Les effets de la scientologie sur ma vie en tant que mère et épouse, comprennent deux divorces, un mari (à qui j’étais mariée avant l’ex-mari ci-dessus) qui était persuadé d’être une réincarnation de Jésus-Christ et donc, capable d’accomplir des miracles, mais ne pouvait travailler et assumer nos trois enfants.
  • Comment me suis-je laissé prendre mes enfants... Mon mari et moi, durant nos relations communes, avons eu un total de quatre divorces et 5 mariages, impliquant un total de 6 enfants. Pour démontrer que ce problème ne se limite pas à nous deux, un aperçu des autres maris et femmes de tous mes ex-maris et de leurs ex-femmes donne un total de 9 divorces, 11 mariages et 13 enfants en familles reconstituées, le tout, pour 6 personnes scientologues. De ces 6 personnes, trois sont actuellement mariées, dont mon mari et moi-même : deux mariages seulement continuent jusque là, dont le nôtre.

 

Les enfants martyrisés en scientologie

http ://scientologie.fraude.free.fr/06/aff-enfants-howell.htm

Ce texte est un plaidoyer fourni par une scientologue qui a vu sa famille détruite, un de ses enfants tué et un autre blessé pendant son « séjour » à la sea-org, l’organisation « élite » des scientologues.

Elle décide de parler de sa famille. 23 ans plus tard...

http ://scientologie.fraude.free.fr/06/aff-famille.htm

Ce message passé sur Internet explique les tribulations d’une scientologue. Elle montre la profondeur des dégâts, puisque cette jeune femme ne s’est décidée à parler que 23 ans plus tard. Nota : les capitales sont dans l’original.

La famille, les enfants, est-ce que ça compte

Un avocat indique que les scientologues l’ont écarté de ses filles  (St Petersburg Times)

Une Gamine haute comme trois pommes témoigne

http://www.antisectes.net/enfmolly.htm

« Je vais vous dire comment on vivrait [dans l’organisation scientologue] : on devrait avoir un appartement. Maman et Papa devaient travailler tous les jours de la semaine. Ma soeur et moi, on devait aller à lécole de scientologie. On y apprendrait pas des choses comme l'orthographe et l'anglais: on y apprendrait des trucs sur la scientologie. Le soir, on devrait aller travailler dans les centres de scientologie. On répondrait au téléphone, on nettoierait, et on ferait le ménage.

On devrait dormir dans des endroits séparés des parents. On ne verrait nos parents qu'aux heures rien que pour la famille. C'est une heure spéciale pour que les parents voient leurs enfants.

Après avoir passé quatre ans en scientologie, la seule idée d’y retourner le pousse  au suicide

http://www.antisectes.net/suicide-alain.htm

Alain tient à faire savoir au monde entier tout ce que la scientologie lui a fait endurer, et ce qu'a subi sa famille, en particulier sa maman, pour avoir écouté les mensonges des scientologues.

La maman d'Alain est entrée en scientologie pour aider son fils qui avait des difficultés comportementales. Il lui arrivait de se bagarrer avec des camarades.

Les gourous sympas : Hubbard déhérite deux de ses enfants, et en pousse un troisième au suicide

http://www.antisectes.net/index0.htm

Des faits: les gourous sectaires aiment-ils leur famille et leurs adeptes?

Jamie Kennedy, fils du fils ainé d'Hubbard senior:

"Mon père avait une lettre de Ron Hubbard Senior, fondateur de la scientologiedisant que s'il le rencontrait un jour, il lui casserait les jambes."
 Doit-on en déduire que Ron Senior aurait « suicidé » un de ses autres fils, Quentin? Je ne sais pas. Je pense plutôt que Quentin a été mené à la folie par son père et sa scientologie.

Comment la patron mondial tyrannique de la secte traîte ses parents

http://www.antisectes.net/misca-rape.htm

J'étais présent lors de cette « explication familiale façon scientologue », Miscavige tenant lui-même le rôle de chapelain. Il fit assoir ses parents et leur dit de divorcer immédiatement, leur dit que Ron Senior entrait aussi sec à la Sea Org, que la Sea Org pourrait le protéger. Loretta était manifestement blessée et bouleversée du verdict et accusa son fils David Miscavige, les autres étant présents, d'être un petit Hitler. Ces autres spectateurs étaient Ray Mithoff, Marty Rathbun, et Norman Starkey. Réaction du patron de la scientologie ? Hurler sur sa mère jusqu'à ce qu'elle se cache la tête dans les mains, de chagrin

La mort du bébé du numéro Trois de la secte, Mike Rinder

http://www.antisectes.net/vickya1.htm (aller au point 18 du témoignage)

18. Mike Rinder, membre de CMO International et sa femme, Kathy eurent un bébé, au début des années 80, né à Clearwater. Mike Rinder était à Gilman Hot Springs, Californie, au même moment.Ce bébé mourut à quelques jours.Le bébé avait reçu la "technologie de soin aux bébés" d'Hubbard. Quand il mourut, Rinder demanda une permission pour voir sa femme et sa famille. Quand on l'apprit à Miscavige,il répondit que la permission pour aller dehors n'était "que de la merde" et que Rinder n'en avait aucun besoin, qu'il devait seulement s'occuper de faire monter ses statistiques, qui n'étaient pas bonnes, que de toute façon le bébé trouverait un autre corps et qu'il n'y avait pas de quoi pleurer.

La fille de l’avocat principal de la secte électrocutée après des années passées dans la secte

http://www.antisectes.net/electrocution.htm

La jeune femme s'appelait Stacey Myers-Moxon. Elle est la fille de l'avocat scientologue MOXON, dont l'importance pour la survie de la scientologie est absolument capitale. Y aurait-il un rapport avec ce décès? Pas impossible. Elle avait 21 ans. On ne sait rien de son mari, certainement un scientologue.

"On ne peut trouver meilleur révélateur d'une société que la façon dont elle trâite les enfants -- Nelson Mandela

Scientology Executive Directive, 06.11.1989, "Les Horaires des organisations scientologues de la zône Pacifique et le temps réservé à la famille" --

Une enquète approfondie démontre qu'il n'existe aucune référence signée Hubbard allouant quotidiennement une heure de temps en famille aux employés de l'Organisation Maritime scientologue (ceux qui ont signé pour un milliard d'années.one billion year..). On a découvert que laisser une telle interruption dans les temps de travail violait la forme d'une organisation telle qu'Hubbard l'avait ordonnée. (extrait d'un message de Tom Voltz)


La scientologie fait passer de nombreux communiqués de presse en profitant de l'enfance

2004-2005-2006

Les services spéciaux de la secte (OSA) ont créé des associations formelles ou informelles dénommées "Jeunes pour les droits de l'homme" ou Non à la drogue, Oui à la Vie", et se servent de ces paravents pour faire passer dans des sites privés de "Communiqués de Presse" diverses annonces racoleuses destinées à établir un parallèle tout à fait trompeur "droits de l'homme"/scientologie". La scientologie est connue pour utiliser depuis 1953 des façades portant des dénominations trompeuses comme Egise de lIngéniérie Spirituelle, Eglise de la Nouvelle Foi, Comité des Citoyens pour les Droits de l'Homme, etc.

Scientologues menaçant des acteurs enfants

Guardian Unlimited, 22 October 2004

Timbers indique que les parents d'un des gosses présents avaient reçu un appel de la part de scientologues travaillant dans le spectacle, leur disant que s'ils continuaient les représentations [d'un spectacle moqueur de la secte], cela pourrait faire du tort à leur carrière.

San Francisco Unified School District

Pourquoi a-t-on autorisé les conférenciers Narconon dans les écoles??

On est scandalisé d'apprendre que le "programme narconon d'éducation et prévention" ait réussi à faire passer son endoctrinement au sujet des drogues et de la désintoxication à des jeunes écoliers. Les experts ont qualifié ce programme de "pseudoscience", indiquant qu'ils en profitaient pour faire passer des croyances et méthodes scientologues aux enfants sans qu'ils en soient conscients.

Meagan Porpora au "Scientology's Mace-Kingsley Ranch"

et Alain, au même ranch (2005)

Mars 2004

La discipline dans le ranch est vraiment bizarre. Il y avait un endroit cloturé pour faire courir des chevaux, mais ils y mettaient les enfants pour les punir. Il fallait rester toute la journée contre la barrière, et en ôter la rouille avec une brosse à dents! On était parfois condamné à y demeurer des jours et des jours... et l'on ne recevait qu'un bol de riz désséché à manger." (Meagan Porpora)

"Alain X" explique dans son récit de l'année qu'il a passé au ranch qu'il y a été battu à coups de poing, qu'il a reçu d'autres sévices et travaux forcés, qu'on lui prenait tout argent qu'il n'avait pas dépensé, alors que ses parents avaient versé des dizaines de milliers de dollars pour qu'il soit traité convenablement. Alain a tenté de se suicider quand ses parents ont voulu le renvoyer en scientologie. Voir www.antisectes.net/suicide-alain.htm

Hana Eltringham: "Il a enfermé pendant deux jours et deux nuits ce gamin de 4 ans et demi, Derek Greene, dans le puits d'ancre du bateau; c'est un endroit froid, trempé, tout d'acier, très sombre, et qui pue.. Mais Derek est resté assis là pendant deux jours et deux nuits, dans le noir. Ce n'est là que brutalité complète, ces't un abus direct contre un gosse.

Un témoin raconte: Et on m'a appelée pour ce gamin à cause de ma bonne réputation d'auditeur. J'ai vu ce gosse. IL avait plus de quarante de fièvre. Incapable de remuer la tête ni la nuque. Et je suis arrivée avec mon électromètre, je lui ai demandé de prendre les boites, mais il n'évait même pas la force de faire ça. Alors, je n'ai pas audité, j'ai dit: ce gosse est trop malade pour être audité, je crois qu'il faut envoyer un médecin. L'officier médical [scientologue sans formation médicale, ndt]. Il a ouvert un livre de médecine en disant qu'il allaitr regarder certaines choses, puis il a déclaré: "Je pense qu'il n'y a aucun risque. On verra demain."

Tout cela avec des fonds exemptés d'impôts (aus USA du moins)


 

Hubbard kidnappe sa propre fille
Documents d'une vie

Hubbard a kidnappé sa propre fille aînée Valérie, dont il prétendit ensuite qu'il s'agissait d'une enfant adultère, afin de payer le minimum lors du divorce d'avec sa seconde femme, la maman de Valérie (Sara Northrup). Frank Dessler fut l'un des auteurs de l'affaire, explique ensuite Sara Hubbard. Voir les articles sur le site: http://www.rickross.com/groups/scientology.html

Pas de Grand-parents pour des enfants scientologues
Extrait de Dianétique pour enfants, par L. Ron Hubbard

Grandparents should not be permitted into the home of their grand-children until they have learned to behave themselves dianetically On ne devrait pas autoriser les grands-parents à vivre sous le même toit que leurs petits-enfants tant qu'ils n'ont pas appris à se comporter en dianéticiens..

Scientology versus education
Huge collection of newspaper articles
The purpose of this website is to help explain the conflicts inherent within Scientology's efforts to forge relationships with education communities. We also want to equip parents, educators, and media with the tools to not only spot these front groups when they creep into town, but to question politicians, school boards, and pricipals who might knowingly or unknowingly support such intellectual fraud.

 

Dear Amanda
Steve Keller writes to his daughter who is still in the cult

I give up. Fighting for your freedom has degenerated into fighting with you. I can no longer tolerate that, because I love you and I remember who you really are. I will also no longer subject myself to the verbal abuse, the accusations and the name-calling with which you and your mother have chosen to deal with me. Such tactics are demeaning to us all, and they're inappropriate.

By Ilse Hruby

FLAG ORDER 760, 25th May 1968 by L. Ron Hubbard -- The word "children" is not to be used to describe these as it is a generality. If there are children about they are classified as children but this does not include Cadets. Children are people who have not passed checksheets and have no paid posts in the Sea Org. -- from a posting of Andreas Heldal-Lund



Hubbard knocked boy off his feet
Interview with Kima Douglas   (oder auf Deutsch)
I saw him physically violent twice. He slapped a boy who answered him back and slapped him across the face with an open hand, and knocked him off his feet.


Scientology children dehumanized by L. Ron Hubbard
Little Mark and Tony

The four-year-old boy could no longer cry. He had been nearly 48 hours in the chain locker of the flagship _Apollo_ and his entire body was aching from his efforts to chip off rust. His knees and hands were raw with cuts and bruises. His voice was raspy from crying, and he was desperately afraid.

Delphi is not and never has been accredited by the State of California. In fact, by making such a claim, the school was violating state law.


Low Priority for Child Welfare
By Adeline Dodd-Bova
I had been a teacher and word clearer in Scientology schools, including Delphi, for three years. I loved the children and was very dedicated to my profession. It was personal observation that provided me the first clue that Scientology placed a low priority on the welfare of children.


Opinions on Scientology Study Technology
Collection of articles
Hubbard's "Study Tech" is the ultimate way of implanting Scn orthodoxy and conformity into people, based upon his notion that ANY difficulty grasping some idea or doctrine stems solely from "misunderstood words", not errors in the ideas or doctrines. Made mandatory in compulsory attendance schools it would stifle free thinking.


Applied Scholastics: A testimony from inside
Anonymous account of deceit and neglect in a Scientology affiliated school or in Italiano

Child neglect: Not every kid there was a scientologist; many were not. You could really tell the difference betweent the scientology kids and the others, though. The Scientology kids were hungry, dirty, scabies, "pathetic", inadequate clothing, etc. HRS ((Health and Rehabilitative Services, an agency looking for neglected children)) had checked into some of the children.

Scientology "education" - An account from inside
An account of Scientology "education" by an ex-member
Tutoring was a joke. By that I mean it was non-existent at the Cadet Org and the Apollo Training Academy where my oldest child was kept while I was on post.


Then came the death lessons
The Scandal of Scientology - chapter 13

Miss Hoad told twenty-five of her pupils to "close your eyes. Concentrate. Now imagine you are dying. Imagine you are dead. Now you have turned to dust and ashes. Now imagine you are putting the ashes back inside yourself." These "death lessons," as they came to be called, were given behind locked doors with a "Do Not Disturb" sign outside, and the children were told "never think about these lessons after they are over," which suggested to many that she was warning the children not to tell their parents about it.

Applied Scientology In Public Schools?
The Watchman Expositor Vol. 14, No. 5
Indeed, despite Scientology's sophistry about the superiority of its teaching techniques because they focus on how to use a dictionary, Hubbard introduces much of his own unique and oblique language into his work. That is a common method of "loading the language" as described in Dr. Robert Lifton's model of mind control.


The Learning Cure
LA Weekly 12 November 1997 (in Italiano)
Johanna Lemlech, a professor of education at USC specializing in curriculum and teaching, calls the books "awful." They "violate everything we know about how children learn, and appropriate pedagogy," she says. "In short, these books should be carefully placed in the cylindrical file."


How the child indoctrination begins
Scientology's Basic Study Manual
So now you realize why the Church of Scientology wants The Basic Study Manual put in on as many children as possible. It is more a r"primer" on Scientology methodology for absorption of Scientology courses and processes.


The Hidden Message in L. Ron Hubbard's "Study Tech"
by David S. Touretzky and Chris Owen
The real danger of Study Tech is that it was designed for indoctrination, not education. While it may be good at producing obedient Scientologists, it is completely at odds with promoting the ability to think independently. It quite deliberately aims to reduce a student's ability to think critically. Students are taught to distrust their own intelligence and background knowledge, passively and uncritically accepting whatever they are being told.

Church Seeks Influence in Schools
Los Angeles Times 27 June 1990   (in Italiano)

The program is designed to win recognition for Hubbard as an educator and moralist and, at the same time, introduce him to the nation's youth. The pocket-size booklet, entitled "The Way to Happiness," is a compilation of widely agreed upon values that Hubbard put into writing in 1981. But Scientology publications have called the campaign "the largest dissemination project in Scientology history" and "the bridge between broad society and Scientology." The booklet is distributed by the Concerned Businessmen's Association of America...

CCO ED [Child Care Organization Executive Directive] #36, 14 MARCH 1979 by Susan Calhoun for the BOARD OF DIRECTORS of the CHURCHES OF SCIENTOLOGY
There is always a short crew of nannies on the weekend, when most liberties occur, and children who have not been picked up when they expect to be become enturbulated [disturbed] and spread this enturbulance around the environment. This upsets nannies who then have to handle these upset, ARC [Affinity, Reality, Communication] Broken children so they don't create problems with their group.

To prevent these instances from occuring when unneccesary, the following rules for Liberty Day are for immediate implementation.

1) PARENTS ARE TO PICK UP THEIR CHILDREN EVERY LIBERTY DAY, FOR THE ENTIRE DAY.

2) THE CHILDREN SHOULD BE PICKED UP BEFORE NOON AND LOGGED OFF WITH THE RESPONSIBLE NANNY OR NANNY I/C [In Charge].

3) THE CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE BROUGHT BACK BEFORE DINNER AND ARE TO BE LOGGED ON WITH THE RESPONSIBLE NANNY OR NANNY I/C.

4) NO CHILD SHOULD BE LEFT WITH ANYONE EXCEPT THE NANNY RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT GROUP OR THE NANNY I/C.

5) NO CHILDREN SHOULD BE LEFT AT THE QM DESK OR ON THE STAIRS, IN THE HALLWAY OR ALONE IN THEIR ROOMS TO GO TO SLEEP BY THEMSELVES.

6) THE PARENTS ARE TO PUT THEIR OWN CHILDREN TO BED AND ENSURE THAT THEY ARE ASLEEP BEFORE THEY LEAVE THE AREA. THEY ARE NOT TO BE LEFT FOR THE NANNY OR NIGHT NANNY TO PUT THEM TO BED OR SLEEP. THE ONLY EXCEPTION TO THIS IS THE CADET GROUP (5 YRS. AND UP).

7) CHILDREN ARE TO BE DRESSED PROPERLY FOR BED; NOT IN THEIR DAY CLOTHES. -- from a posting of Andreas Heldal-Lund

Scientology and child molesters
Sub-index of this page
Excerpt: A Scientologist by the name of Donald Anthony Strawn, also known as Tony Strawn, was convicted in 1995 to thirty years in prison for sexually molesting two girls, ages 11 and 13. The children were in his custodial care at the time. Scientology recommended (under threat of expulsion) that the mother not report the incident to the proper authorities, because the church could "handle his aberrations."

(Scientologists are not allowed per policy of "bringing civil suit against any Scientology organization or Scientologist". These are Suppressive Acts and persons "that would do such a thing act out of self interest only to the detriment of all others, they cannot be granted the rights and beingness ordinarily accorded rational beings and so place themselves beyond any consideration for their feelings or well being.")



Scientology and Family
From the book "THE NOW RELIGION" by George Malko

I met one family where the total, absolute involvement of the children resulted in such a cataclysmic break, such a destruction of all the bonds which had kept six people together and sustained them as a family that, in desperation, the mother had decided to get into Scientology to try and understand what it was that had, in effect, taken her children from her. Within months - she told me all this in a voice which dropped at times to a nervous, confidential whisper, rising at other times to declare, posit, be strong and confident - within months she had become convinced that she had discovered a philosophy which did work, just as her children claimed, and she was certain it would eventually help her as much as it had helped them. She argued sincerely that she had experienced all of the soul-illuminating insights Scientology promises mankind. When I asked her what her husband thought of what she had done, she grew hesitant, almost confused, and finally confessed she couldn't begin to describe the bitterness he felt.


Teen Worker Exploited by cult

Of course, my bosses determined that my mind was cluttered and was forced to attend class. I didn't exactly like their classes. Slowly but surely, my wages were cut from $6.50 to about $2.00 bucks an hour. It was all a scam to try to convert me to Scientology.

CADET GO ED [Guardian Office Executive Directive] #4, 5 May 1979 by Stephen LeMarr for the BOARD OF DIRECTORS of the CHURCHES OF SCIENTOLOGY -- Then in Feb. the hepatitis scene happened and we were swarmed over by County and State Health Inspectors. The County Inspector (an ally) found out about the existence of the Fountain and said this is not OK and let's quickly work together and handle it. He continually predicted an attack from another agency and was not able to say which one. We found the Annex could be used and was legal with a small amount of renos and started to work. Sure enough, we were raided by 2 Special Agents of the State. But because of our taking full responsibility for our scene and well into having the Annex ready for use, there was nothing they could do to us. I will not go into detail of what they could have done but will indicate that we were suited in 1974 for running illegal child care and this would have been our second offence. First time we got probation and you could imagine what the second offense would have gotten us. -- from a posting of Andreas Heldal-Lund



Letter of Delphi to a Scientologist parent
Delphi School, Office of the Headmaster
I have been concentrating largely on the situation existing among Scientologists regarding the education of their children. We have found that education is generally a quite low priority anong Scientologists and that the idea that "study tech equals education" is very common.


Punishment of children
Extract of Child Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard
If punishment of a child becomes necessary, don't nag and hit the child and then nag some more. Tell the child the reason for the punishment in simple, direct language, and then apply the punishment in *absolute silence*


A Childhood in Scientology!
By Ilse Ruby
Scientology considers and treats children as Thetans in small bodies, therefore there is no place for childhood in the Scientology system. Procedures such as auditing and dubious communication training exercises, such staring at people, is also done by children; in all likelihood it leads to a loss of reality and social problems.


Leaving the Fold
San Francisco Chronical 12 Feb 2001
When she was 14, young Astra Woodcraft was recruited to follow her mother's footsteps and join the Sea Organization. From age 14 to 19, she said, she was working from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., laboring for months without a day off, doing administrative work at the church world headquarter building in Hollywood.

Scientology never saved me from a life of promiscuity and petty crime. I would have turned out great without them. All they did was take my childhood.

..to manipulate your children
..they are thetans in small bodies
..kids have committed harmful acts when they're critical

Scientology's Rejection of Family
Essay by Stacy Brooks
When LRH [L. Ron Hubbard] said in the tape excerpt that "your urges toward family are not thetan urges at all, they're the GE," what he was saying was that anyone who puts any importance on the family is going in a direction toward MEST, not Theta. That is an out-ethics thing to do. It is putting counter-intention on the forward motion of Scientology. It is holding back the entire group.


Scientology "Reverend" Bagley to a father
Letter of Bagley
I am expert at harassment, try me and find out. You are not strong enough. You are not smart enough. You haven't the funds to go through long lengthy court battles. We have. Bigger men than you have done their best to stop us. They failed. So will you because you are a blatant moron in comparison.


Security Check Children
Hubbard Communications Office Bulletin of 21 September 1961
Children's Security Check Ages 6 - 12

What has somebody told you not to tell?
Have you ever decided you did not like some member of your family?
Have you ever taken something belonging to somebody else and never given it back?
Have you ever pretended to be sick (ill)?

(The "security check" (interrogation) is done while connected to a crude lie detector . Scientology is so nice to confirm the existence of this "Bulletin" on its own web-site .)


Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman split a question of faith
New York Post 12 Feb 2001
"Mothers who have raised children in the Church of Scientology and come out have a terrible sense of guilt over what our children went through," Summers told the Post. "They had children doing physical work, sometimes 40 to 60 hours a week. It could be anything - shoveling gravel, laying carpet, but mostly it was clerical work," she said.

Contrary to Hubbard's claims, breast milk is quite usefull, as was also reported in The Lanclet that breast milk fights infant diarrhea. On top of that, honey is a potentially fatal substitute for infants under 12 months, due to possible presence of Clostridium botulinum bacteria.

 


Children and teens and Scientology's Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF)
Sub-index of this page
According to Scientology "Any law which applies to the behavior of men and women applies to children" and so it is no surprise that the harsh re-indoctrination RPF program with its forced admissions of alleged past wrong-doings and a maximum of 6 hours of sleep per night, is also applied to children.

 


HCO [Hubbard Communications Office] BULLETIN OF 20 December 1958, "PROCESSING A NEW MOTHER" by L. Ron Hubbard - Next, the delivery itself should carry as little anaesthetic as possible, be as calm and no-talk as possible and the baby should not be bathed or chilled but should be wrapped somewhat tightly in a warm blanket, very soft, and then left alone for a day or so.



British child custody and visitation cases

Children also become damaged pawns in family conflicts as the result of Scientology policy which teaches people how to manipulate others. One sees the untoward effects of this policy within the family home when the group works to alienate a child from a spouse who has incurred the 'church's' disapproval and who must be shunned by any means available.

ED NW _26_ PAC, 29 JUNE 1979 by Susan Jones for the BOARD OF DIRECTORS of the CHURCHES OF SCIENTOLOGY - Currently the execs of the CCO [Child Care Organization] are working to set it up to take care of our children but the current set up is inadequate for our existing Sea Org children and far behind the growth of the baby population in PAC [Pacific Area Command]. It is important that CCO be given the chance to become set up to ensure our children are cared for optimumly and trained for their future. -- from a posting of Andreas Heldal-Lund




Scientology disconnect policy destroying families
Sub-index of this page
This is one of the worst policies of scientology. To "disconnect" means cutting off all communication. Between parents and children, or husband and wife. Regardless what bond one had previously. Scientology does this under a pretext of helping them. In fact it is more a means to keep members ignorant of outside interference/information, which could result in revenue loss for the organization when members would leave because of gaining new perspectives with information previously withheld to them.


11 year old girl tells her story
Molly Hutchinson's experience of Scientology   (en Français)
We would have separate sleeping quarters from our parents. We would only see our parents at family hour. Family hour is an hour set aside for the parents to be with their children. Luckily, we got out of Scientology just in time. The day we put the for sale sign up in our front yard was the day we got out of it.

Affidavit of Tonja Burden, January 25, 1980   (en Français)
Children were not allowed to live with their parents. Scientology permitted one visit every other week, and only for 45 minutes during mealtime. My parents were placed at American Saint Hill Organization and left Scientology in September 1973, when I was aboard the ship, the Apollo.
Affidavit of Carol Garrity, May 21, 1982
I am aware that many similar operations were conducted against Tonja Burden while I was working for the G.O.

"Commodore's messengers:" The youngsters, whose parents belonged to Hubbard's Church of Scientology, would lay out his clothes, run his shower and help him dress. He taught them how to sprinkle powder in his socks and gently slip them on so as not to pull the hairs on his legs. They made sure the temperature in his room never varied from 72 degrees. They boiled water at night to keep the humidity just right. They would hand him a cigarette and follow in his footsteps with an ashtray.

She had been an aspiring, very talented actress, but once she got into scientology she dropped her acting career entirely.

We document the introductory speech in Cologne with a hidden camera. The director of the German "Applied Scholastics" center tells us, "Basically we are this office in Germany and we establish various study groups all around the country to become better known. And the bad thing at the moment is that we really are not able to become known, because the press immediately arrives and talks Scientology and brainwashing. And people close up. They don't want to hear anything about it or have anything to do with it. It's rather criminal, what's happening out there."

Quite a number of children are behind their grade level on studies in the public school system (which is absurd since we have study tech and wogs don't). . . A plan is to rapidly be worked out by Estates NW Ops IMO [Int Management Org] on getting the PAC children back in public school since we clearly do not have the resources at this time to run a proper school ourselves (though this is something that should be phased into in the future per Child Care Strat Planning). This plan will need to include getting in the Founder advices on tutoring of the children after school to pick up MUs [Missunderstood words]and get them up to grade, etc.

Coerced abortion and childabuse in Scientology
Declaration of Tera Hattaway 12 April 2001
In one of his tapes, he [L.Ron Hubbard] mentions just letting a baby or kid “cry it out” when upset. Unfortunately, I saw a lot of this crying it out when the kids were dropped off at the facility or when they just needed someone to give them a hug. There was no sympathy given, as LRH described sympathy as “low toned. There just were never enough grown-ups to go around to give these kids love, affection and the true nurturing that a child deserves and has a right to have.

Scientology reaching into Israeli school system
Sub-index of this page
Two months ago, parents of third graders at a Tel Aviv public school contacted Lev L'Achim when they discovered that a workbook written by the founder of scientology was being used in an after-school enrichment program. Parents who confronted local education officials were told not to worry. The book may have been written by a scientology adherent, the officials said, but the subject matter is "unrelated." After failing to persuade the school to drop the text, Lev L'Achim hired lawyer Tomer Moskowitz to file suit in the Israeli Supreme Court, contending the workbook violates Israeli laws against forced conversion of children.

Chapter 17 of the book Recovery From Cults - Children and Cults
This chapter will try to make the best of this unfortunate situation. We will first examine the psychological dynamics that make cultic groups especially prone toward child abuse and neglect. We will then describe the types of harm that have been observed in cultic and related groups. Lastly,we will offer some thoughts on treatment issues pertaining to children coming out of cultic groups.


Why should we provide information about cults?

A goldfish living in a bowl that is painted black on the outside will never know it lives in a bowl unless someone takes it out and shows it the rest of the world. Mindsets can be like that - locked into a `thinking box', unable to see outside because the web of beliefs is so all-encompassing.
