Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L.

President of the Church of Scientology cc RTC cc ASI cc CO UK cc MAA AOSHUK BPI 27 January, 1984 After my due care and consideration and a prolonged examination of events, patterns, attitudes and activities within the Church of Scientology over the past seven years, I hereby tender my resignation from this Organization. Whatever value exists in the basics of Scientology technology is vastly and completely overshadowed by a corrupt and degrading modus operandi imposed by the Church's senior management. This operandi operates to the continued detriment of those remaining Church members whose integrity is till uncontaminated. As a member of the Sea Organization for five years, and closely associated with top management of the Church, I can state completely and unreservedly that the following are the results of my observation based upon abundant and existing evidence. (1) Under RTC control the Church now represents the Bridge to total intimidation, fear and enslavement: not the Bridge to Total Freedom. (2) The valuable goals for man's betterment expounded by the organization exist today only on paper, not in practice. (3) In my experience, staff are degraded, intimidated and oppressed and are rendered robotic and manageable by fear tactics. I have witnessed the disillusionment, degradation and departure of hundreds of good, honest and highly dedicated staff members who have suffered through successive purges, experiencing cruel and inhumane treatment. These individuals have been severed from friends and families, their only crime being an expressed desire to see an end to injustice, suppressive and dictatorial behavior, and the blatant corruption of the tech and policy of Scientology. Staff are routinely handled with ruthless force, psychotic screaming, obscene shouting and absurd programs. Lies, trickery and treachery abound. PAGE 2 (4) The public are viewed solely as gross income products. The attitude is to control them with propaganda. To deprive them of their upstat field opinion leaders (regardless of opinions) so that no voice exists other than that of the official Church propaganda manipulators. The insane rationale behind such attitudes is that 'the field is composed of dilettantes', that 'anyone not in the Sea Org is under suspicion', that 'the field respond best to intimidation and make-wrong techniques'. (5) 'Ethics' and 'justice' within the Church of Scientology are viewed as aids to management control, they have nothing to do with any benefit for the individual case. Ethics are implemented with threats and emotionalized with fear. Justice is a sham, reminiscent of the worst South American dictatorships and Nazi Germany. Comm Evs are a farce, a mere 'going through the motions' executed AFTER someone has already been targeted for demolition and the decision taken to expel them. The findings are often invented and always grossly over stated, and serve as a means to blacken the character of and to denigrate an individual, to render him impotent as a credible source of information. These black propaganda techniques are aided by the culling of data directly from pc folders (in violation of the sanctity of confessional material) and the use of any and all third party gossip or tittle-tattle regardless of its truth or taken from such reservoirs of 'black opinion' as are contained in the secret dossiers of the Church's B1 files. ((GO Bureau 1, Intelligence.)) (6) As an aid to the furtherance of control and manipulation, all Church of Scientology members are requested to spy on each other and encouraged to write up their opinions of others. Reports exist in my ((Ethics)) files (copies are rarely if ever, these days, sent to the individual concerned) containing criticisms of my colourful, high fashionable and upstat dress and appearance. These reports from obviously jealous Church members complain that I walk around as if I own the place, looking like Lady Muck; furthermore a close friend of mine was written up for having too many pairs of shoes! The utter claptrap and 'weird think' behind these and other originations are indicative of the insidious and creeping contagion coupled with sinister mental disorder which represents a major product of today's Church of Scientology. In the past several months I have witnessed the Church's techniques of intimidation and oppression reach new heights: (1) My 2D ((boy friend)) partner has been effectively worn down by hours and hours of mental grilling at the hands of Ethics and the so- called RTC 'Justice' mission to the point where he has been forced to change his 2D allegiance toward me. (2) My business associate has recently been grilled with the object of breaking her allegiance toward me. (3) Professional associates of mine in the community have been subjected to a campaign of lies and vilification. PAGE 3 (4) Certain of my friends have been continuously and libelously defamed. (5) My daughter has witnessed several of her school friends expelled from her school through no fault of their own, owing to the application of oppressive RTC policies within the school. I now feel that it is a matter of public concern that the effects of this frightening monstrosity within our midst, the Church of Scientology, be seen and known for what it is; hence the public nature of this resignatory document. Upon my realization that the present Church bears no resemblance to the valid organization I originally thought I had become a member of, I realize that I am betraying my own Code of Honour in remaining connected to such a PTS source. Since my decision to completely sever this connection, my life and livingness have boomed and I have experienced a tremendous resurgence of case gain. As an ex-highly trained LRH Public Relations Officer, one of only three planet-wide at the time of my appointment, I, in keeping with Omar Garrison and Gerry Armstrong, had access to files containing much extensive, detailed and sensitive material, massive evidence in support of the statements I now make, and others before me have made. Accordingly I can now state that: (1) THe Scientology public and staff have been lied to, tricked and deceived. (2) The S.O. 1 Line to and from LRH is a complete and utter farce. ((Standing Order 1, 'You can always write to me - LRH')) He neither receives nor answers letters sent to him by the public. Even letters to his own children are written and signed in his name by others. (3) Many of the datums given on Ron's Journals especially RJ 38 are untrue. (4) In my past experience, LRH EDs, bulletins, policies and telexes have not originated from, nor were they signed by LRH. Whatever the situation in earlier years may have been, the present identity of LRH as expressed in these documents is a figment of their writers' imagination. As an end to such deceit in my own universe, I previously resigned for the Sea Org. As a furtherance of such an end and as a source of honest enlightenment for the universes of others, I hereby resign from the Church of Scientology. My resignation will remain effective until such time as affinity, reality and honest communication are seen to exist with the Church of Scientology. ((In, other words, until hell freezes over - Jane)). Such a change in my opinion could not be undertaken under the present management or framework. Nor indeed until such a time as their degrading alter-is has been removed from the policy record. PAGE 4 With the availability of the whole Bridge from alternative groups being delivered by honest and caring individuals in many parts of the world, the MYTH of the Church's monopoly on YOUR ROUTE TOTAL FREEDOM has finally been exposed as a suppressive falsehood. ((Editor emphasis added)). 'The focal point is upon Scientology, not its organizations or auditors or personalities.' LRH For many of us a new day already exists. For others the first dawning rays of understanding are penetrating into their heavily suppressed universes. I take heart that the goals envisioned for this planet by LRH and others are finally achievable. I trust that the truths expressed herein will enable others to examine the situation of the Church of Scientology, if they are not already aware of it, and take these necessary steps towards resignation and real Total Freedom. I and many others have been betrayed by the unscrupulous yet again, but all has not been in vain. The Bridge is still available, elsewhere. My abilities to disseminate the tech and my abilities to help people with it remain ever strong, and my intention to do this continues unthwarted. I am aware of the intimidation, harassment, threats of bodily harm and psychological warfare techniques used by the Church and its agents in attempts to silence its detractors. I therefore wish to make the following quite clear: My personal collection of documented evidence and witnessed affidavits are held on my behalf by my personal legal representatives. Should any act of retribution for my resignation be perpetrated against myself, my friends. and/or my family, these documents will be released for public consumption. Be it known, that I will not tolerate harassment in any form nor the issuance of any documentation, nor the circulation of any verbal denigration of my character in any way whatsoever. Such attempts to do so will be treated by myself as slander and/libel, etc. and the necessary legal action will be taken immediately.
