Russian “Press Council” decision for the Scientologists against Russia 1 TV

Caroline

Patron Meritorious
There has been a decision by the Russian “Press Council” that Scientology was unfairly treated in the June 23, 2011 broadcast of a panel discussion on Russia 1 television program "Pryamoy Efir." Gerry and Dr. Alexander Dvorkin participated in the program.

The “Press Council” was apparently established by the “Russian Union of Journalists. ” Also apparently, its decisions do not have any force and do not compel anybody to anything. The “Press Council” has given the Scientologists an undeserved PR win, which hopefully will become a very well deserved PR flap.

What purports to be the entire dossier was posted on March 4, 2013 on the presscouncil.ru website, where there is a photo of the council watching Gerry on "Pryamoy Efir" when the complaint was heard on February 7, 2013.

The complainants were “members of the Church of Scientology of Moscow,” and the applicants who attended the Council meeting were OSA agent Yuri Maximov and lawyer Yury Yershov.

We have been told that the material boils down to Yuri Maximov saying that the "Pryamoy Efir" editorial staff ignored the Scientologists’ warnings before the taping of the program, that the host and guests were biased, and that the program aired negative, unfounded, and untrustworthy testimony.

Page 5 of the dossier says that the material will be posted for three weeks on the presscouncil.ru website but does not explain the reason for this time limit.

Page 2 of the dossier is the Scientology Center's Statement." The third paragraph is about Gerry:

presscouncil.ru said:
The development of the theme of the “Pryamoy Efir” talk show began before the actual broadcast. The subject of the program became known in the media, where it was announced that an upcoming broadcast would feature the participation of G. Armstrong, a former Scientologist known for his critical and derogatory statements against the Church of Scientology and its adherents. We notified the editorial staff that the person invited to the taping of the program, Gerald Armstrong, was the object of an arrest warrant issued on January 17, 2001 by the Superior Court of California in the United States for violation of an injunction prohibiting harmful actions against the Church of Scientology. However, no response to this warning was received from the editorial staff, and the content of the program was not affected. During the taping of “Pryamoy Efir,” G. Armstrong continued to lie about his former co-religionists. For example, here is a clip and a quotation from the broadcast in which the host addresses Armstrong, trying to elicit comments that are "damaging" toward Scientologists: "So it's a kind of concentration camp, a prison? Have you been in it?” Armstrong replies: "It would be equivalent of a work camp or a re-education camp." In an interview with the same network, Telekanal Rossiya, that aired on March 20, 2005, the same Armstrong, aside from various statements hostile to Scientology, admitted: "It is true that Scientology does not have concentration camps ... "

On May 24, 2011, portal-credo.ru posted an interview with Scientology spokesman and Russian Freedom Editor Alexei Danchenkov that black PRed Gerry, and Gerry responded on June 2, 2011: Response to Scientology Moscow Black PR

Also in 2011, Yuri Maximov posted on a Scientology site this “rebuttal” to the TV program that also black PRs Gerry:

Rebuttal to performance in the television show "Live" on TV channel "Russia-1"

Yury Maximov

June 23, 2011 on TV Channel "Russia-1" came out the transfer, which contain false information about Scientology and its founder L. Ron Hubbard. Here are the documents and facts to refute allegations that do not correspond to reality. Firstly, it should be noted that the record is the talk show "Live" on Scientology held May 19, 2011, and immediately after the recording of the broadcast version was informed of the false information that made a number of speakers to record a talk show.

Further, the editorial staff was informed that with regard to guest on the recording of the program, Gerald Armstrong, Superior Court of California, USA on January 17, 2001 order was issued for his arrest for violation of that person injunction against harmful actions against the Church of Scientology. However, the organizers apparently thought transmission that is delinquent, hiding from the authorities, and they need to perform at the transmission.

Talk show host Michael Zelensky, in his comments, using unverified data, despite the fact that the duty of a journalist is to check the authenticity of the information to him the information (Article 47 of the Law on Media). In particular, he said: "As early as 1952, the Philadelphia Doctorate Course lectures, he [Hubbard] said ... We discovered several new ways to turn people into slaves" (1 minute 29 seconds and re-recording of the broadcast - 43 minutes 26 seconds). In fact, a distortion of remarks by L. Ron Hubbard. Here is the exact quote: "This universe has long been looking for new ways to enslave. Well, here we have new ways of slavery. Let's follow that no one made a slave. " Ron Hubbard, Philadelphia Doctorate Course, lecture number 20 on December 6, 1952, "Development of Scientology. Definition of Logic ", p. 128.

A copy of page 128, Philadelphia Doctorate Course, lecture number 20 on December 6, 1952

Any person reading this sentence, it becomes clear that Mr. Hubbard wanted no one a slave, so plainly written in the text. However, leading down the final sentence of the sentence and insert the preposition "We .." in the quote so that it looks as if the Scientologists discovered several new ways to turn people into slaves.

If you follow this method of working with text, it can be any innocent phrase or statement to transform into the most frightful appeal or declaration.

False Gerald Armstrong: "First of all, it is very difficult to leave the organization, they try to keep hold of people all sorts of ways, including physically isolating them, literally locking them by planting a castle." (3 minutes 27 seconds recording a program). This statement is denied Armstrong's another party - a former employee of the Scientology organization in St. Petersburg, Alexey Kondrashov, which lead to the question said: "The fact that I did not just quit the organization. Go and live quietly with their lives - it is not so difficult was it. " In addition, the L. Ron Hubbard in his religious philosophy developed by placing more emphasis on spiritual and physical freedom, in particular, he wrote about the violence: "In reality, the violence does nothing but further violence" (April 24, 1952, quoted in from the lecture "SRP8" text of the lecture, p. 590, series of lectures "Factors. Admiration and beingness revival.")

Distortion of Alexander Dvorkin: "This orgpolitika is Scientology's policy, which is fair game, it can be translated in two ways, as fair game. Its formulated Hubbard "(4 minutes 34 seconds record). In fact, this policy does not exist anymore, and assert that it exists at present, means to introduce others into error. Back in 1973, L. Ron Hubbard gave an exhaustive explanation on the matter: "These guidance letters were revoked as soon as it became clear that the concept of" fair play ", as described above, misunderstood and interpreted by ignorant people who believed that it involves the provision of Scientologists the right to act contrary to law, and (or) the standards of decency. " L. Ron Hubbard, March 22, 1976

Translated into Russian statements

False Alexander Dvorkin: "Well, Hubbard said, including ... Hubbard directive, which including destroying physically and it is considered sacred scripture of Scientology, as Hubbard's every word." (8 minutes 7 seconds of talk shows). This is a pure lie, never the founder of the religion did not make such statements. In particular, there are no guidelines and instructions of any kind about this. You might also notice that in 1980 L. Ron Hubbard created a non-religious moral code, "The Way to Happiness," which was released in booklet form and contain such chapters as "Love and Help Children," "Set a good example", "Strive to live truthfully, "" Do Not Murder, "" Do not do anything illegal, "" Be Worthy of Trust "," Do your commitments, "" Respect the Religious Beliefs of Others ", this material is widely used by Scientologists and spread throughout the world. Over the past 2 years more than 3.5 million copies of the book "The Way to Happiness" spread globally, from the Congo and on both sides of the Arab-Israeli conflict to Colombia and Venezuela. Since the opening of the new building fund, "The Way to Happiness" in 2003, demand for books grew so that the translation of this book was made for another 52 languages. Currently "The Way to Happiness" has been translated in 94 languages and distributed widely in the community. Russian Foundation for "The Way to Happiness" says that since 1981 has been extended more than 100 million copies of this book. In 2010 the book "The Way to Happiness" was entered in the Guinness Book of Records as the most being transferred at the time the book (70 languages).

Statement of Michael Zelensky lead. "Critics have categorically denied humanitarian and religious nature of Scientology and its methods of recruitment of followers associated with the sessions of hypnosis" (18 minutes and 33 seconds talk show). This phrase shows the prejudice against Scientology. If the authors approached objectively, they would not have mentioned the opinion of the "unknown critics," and famous scientists. Here are a few illustrative excerpts from their findings: "All that is said and done in Scientology can and should make sense only if Scientology is regarded as a religion." - Dario Sabatuchchi, Professor of History of Religion, University of Rome. Or "Scientology is undoubtedly a religion." - Jacques Robert, Associate Professor of International Law, University of Paris. The Russian scientist, NS Gordienko, who studies the phenomenon of religion for over 45 years, based on his research wrote: "All this taken together suggests that the organization of Scientology is a religious organization and is fully consistent with the status of the church ...." This conclusion is shared by scientists from Germany, France, Belgium, Finland, Sweden, South Africa, Italy, Spain, Norway, Denmark, Greece, Holland, Austria, Argentina, Australia, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, Kazakhstan, Slovakia, Hungary, Czech Republic Slovenia, the United States and other countries. With respect to hypnosis, which in Scientology are very negative and is not used by the church in any way, you can refer to the opinion of the church founder L. Ron Hubbard's "One could say that man lives partly hypnotized state. ... Scientology processes can be described as methods of "razgipnotezirovaniya" people, leading them to greater freedom and a better life. " (The book "Creation of human abilities." Head "PSA 8-K Rehabilitation of the human spirit", page 352).

Other scientists who carried a thorough investigation of Scientology, wrote the following: "Moral principles laid down in the Creed of Scientology Church of Scientology and the Code, the Code of an auditor, supervisor Code, Code of Honor. These documents prohibit universally negative actions (killing, stealing, lying, etc.). " (Legal Opinion on the Church of Scientology. Filipovic, LA, Jelenia VE Sagan AN)

Lies by Vladimir Ivanov. "The charter of the church is written direct style complete opposition to our Constitution and laws of the Russian Federation. The statute provides for discrimination against people who are screened for service in the Church of Scientology, by profession. It is forbidden to invite psychiatrists, military psychologists and journalists "(47 minutes 28 seconds recording a talk show). Such is not and can not be in the charter of the church. All the activities of the church are conducted in accordance with the laws of the Russian Federation.

Vladimir Ivanov lie about the Scientology organization, which he calls "fraudulent structure to make money" (46 minutes and 59 seconds talk show). Perhaps it goes without saying that this statement has no proof. Rather, it is an attempt to undermine the credibility of the faithful to L. Ron Hubbard himself or to sow hostility to the founder of the church among people who do not know about Ron Hubbard and his legacy. By the way, L. Ron Hubbard himself, spoke about what his study of mind and spirit have no commercial purpose. "You know, working in Hollywood, I was earning more per month than I think in three years, during which I have been doing Dianetics. I'm not kidding. So that money has little to do with this, "he said in 1953. Mr. Ivanov and other participants of the talk-show one hour transfer (3 hours was recorded) did not mention Scientology social programs aimed at addressing the critical problems of society. These programs covered a half billion people around the world. Corps volunteer Scientology clergy, amounting to September 11, 2001 6000, has grown to 200 000. Volunteer Ministers helped 10 million disaster victims in all parts of the world - this is ten times more than in the previous decade. With the support of the church was founded 30 great public service announcements on human rights and the documentary "The History of Human Rights", in a period of ten years of the new century, these materials that introduce people to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and calling for its implementation, have seen many people in different parts of the world. In the social program "The Truth About Drugs," sponsored by the Church of Scientology, was issued 16 public service announcements, as well as 13 brochures with actual data. He was released a documentary film in thirteen parts, where ex-addicts talk about the devastating impact of the most widely used drugs. These multimedia materials are told the truth about drugs to more than 500 million people belonging to "vulnerable groups". These data indicate the spread of secular programs to improve the society, carried out by Scientologists. The fact that neither the authors of the program, no guest has never mentioned about these well-known campaigns of the church shows a clear bias and bias.

Presenter Michael Zelensky, "You can, of course, a long time to understand what exactly is Scientology, and you can just remember the words of an old man Hubbard, who was fond of saying that the best way to make a million dollars - to found his own religion. Do not fall into the trap "(1 hour 00 minutes 34 seconds record). This is another lie, which is aimed at discrediting Scientology and its founder L. Ron Hubbard. Nothing like L. Ron Hubbard did not say. This rumor was debunked long ago. Moreover, Sam Moskowitz, Chairman of the Meeting of the Association of Writers of Eastern science fiction in 1948, which allegedly referred to Hubbard, and said the phrase about "a million dollars", provided a copy of minutes of meetings, from which it is clear that Hubbard did not say anything like that. In addition, there are court decisions - for example, the Munich court - in which the parties that mention this hearing, are found guilty.

Live gamy

Yury Maximov, blogger

We live, says the leader and he is partly right, because even though the transfer is in writing, but is called "Live." But if the viewer is accidentally switched on our channel, and only heard the phrase, "You live", the entire responsibility for the perception of the show as taking place in the air, he took over. June 23 in the "Live", was the transfer of Cu. Viewers saw three guests of the program, which were presented by Scientologists, and the two men considered themselves ex-Scientologists, and the third to opt out of membership of Scientologists.

One of the invited American Jerry Armstrong as hard slandered the Scientologists that he was forced to flee the state because, having appeared there, he will be arrested. Interestingly, the organizers invited not the former, and present Scientologists on the program (30 producers of the program - it will not fig and butter), and, of course, not talking about cursory Armstrong, and suggested that Scientologists tell about the social activities of the Church of Scientology, but in the transfer of so- no mention about this social activity. May well have been able to with an invitation to the Scientologists, if not the very activity of Armstrong and his friend, Dvorkin, who spoke at every opportunity that Armstrong was invited to one of the main Russian TV channels "Russia is a" for participation in the program. Overseas visitor from America, and became the first number of guests transfer, telling her in every way sentimental story. He was presented as a major figure in history, overriding the expert, archivist Ron Hubbard. Our archivist silent about what being a petty clerk who trusted the old archives, he fled along with these archives, but apparently, this detail for television viewers, from the perspective of the organizers is not important, and in the editorial did not respond to treatment with Scientology church information violations of Armstrong. Probably thinking: "You know we've got a topic with staff, the script is written, and you are here with their little things ...." Transfer to a peculiar and authentic voices of the interpreter, who translated the speech of Armstrong as the first import movies from the "Goblin". Unlike his famous namesake, our Armstrong is known for only one, relentless pouring mud former co-religionists. He told a very pitiful that kept him locked up, but his Russian "colleague" a former Scientologist Alexey Kondrashov the contrary, said that no one is held, "Go and live quietly with his life is not so difficult was it," who is right and who's lying, so viewers may not have understood .

Armstrong stands on the side of his great friend, Alexander Dvorkin, justifying attacks on his fellow Armstrong, he explains that now, they say, they have such a policy, "it was condemned in the decision Berkendridzha," he said, but the decisions did not show it. How not to mention the fact that Judge Ron Hubbard never saw, and all the ideas of Ron Hubbard, he podcherpnul of utterances of the same Armstrong. ... By the way, as in the transmission is not talked about that in 1984, Armstrong, trying to persuaded the police against the Church of Scientology, said - "we damn well do not need to prove it. We do not have, his mother, to prove anything. We just have to say it. " The investigation on the videotape was filmed Armstrong statement that he intends to throw cfabrikovat and incriminating documents on the territory of the Church, that they were discovered during a subsequent raid.

Any citizen of mature age, in America, we have, or even in a developing country, knows that a violation of his rights, he sues. But now, apparently, if the court found no violations, such as citizen sovramshi, that is a citizen of another way to take the shares and villages, and tell scary stories "for life". That's how our guest Armstrong, everywhere he goes with the stories of two decades ago, it seems, and lives.

Armstrong and another 'expert' on the transfer was Alexander Dvorkin, who is called Coryphaeus sektovedeniya, the subject of domestic science and on the poorly studied, probably not included in the list of specialties of the Russian Academy of Sciences. So that's what really unites these two wonderful people, so is the idea that "do not have to prove ... it is only necessary to say it," Dvorkin said and "I know so many victims of Scientology ..." question - and where are they? In addition to those that are alive and well, go around the world, as Armstrong, or write a book like Kondrashov, look outside, God forbid anyone here that's such a victim.

Very curious to hear opinions about Scientology from Associate Professor of St. Petersburg Orthodox Theological Academy, who was also an expert on the transmission. Who said, "pseudo-religion, it is distinguished, that she would adjust to some sort of traditional religion." True Father did not say specifically what traditional religion he has in mind. Or maybe, God forgive me, he is also contracted by Messrs. Armstrong and Dworkin terrible plague: "do not have to prove ... it is only necessary to say", because in fact Scientology at all desire can not "adjust" for Christianity, as its creed is not associated with bible. Actually, ladies and gentlemen, it seems that this idea of Armstrong, runs through the entire transfer. Very confused and incomprehensible said another participant, who spoke about different things that you can not always relate to each other. Interestingly, in a talk show broadcast showed footage election. For example, on the radio a woman says, "Our daughter has been secured by apartment 150 square meters. meters. There. And so they did with our daughter .... " But what was said a woman in the fixation of "Our daughter was secured apartment of 150 square meters. And she dragged her on the pyramid Green Line. Green Line, where it was Angelina Vovk, and begged us to go there, mom and dad go those, it's not a sect, it is not a pyramid, there is Angelina Vovk, that's so ...». And what is Scientology? It is true our objective and not biased experts suggest it, that Dworkin, for example, when a woman burst into another incomprehensible tirade suggests, "You mean Scientology. You mean it .... " "Yes, yes" - she said.

Another guest of Fyodor Kondratyev, supporter of the Soviet school of psychiatry. Responding to a question, suddenly mentioned the criminal act, "he managed to steal children, but not through official channels ...." Apparently, it must be regarded as a message about the crime, that's interesting, will be engaged in a review of the bodies of messages, given that the story featured a member of Kondratiev?

A journalist of the "Komsomolskaya Pravda" Catherine Rozhaeva picturesquely described how she was auditing (spiritual counseling form) from the Scientologists, by taking 50 grams of alcohol, without mentioning that the rules of the Church of Scientology prohibits alcohol at the time of auditing. Moreover, Catherine admitted she had come, "taking on his chest," to the Scientologists in a car ".... Even though my car was parked just in front of here." In general, do not transfer, but a collection of reports of crimes. The MP Mishchenko talks about how he came to the "letter of intimidation," I want to ask, where is your statement to the police? Or, again, it turns out, like Armstrong's, "do not have to prove ... it is only necessary to say it." Here it is, a great formula to manipulate public opinion. To quote our MP Mishchenko, who frankly admits in his intentions, "Yes, we will expel them from the country. Yes, we accept the laws. "

Our unsuspecting viewer might get the opinion that our country does not work the Constitution and laws, which guarantee the right to freedom of conscience and religion, and the deputies can do what they want. Silenced the audience, the Constitution is valid, and the law "On freedom of conscience and religion" is executed.

Another guest of Vladimir Ivanov, who somehow was introduced as the lead manager of Scientologists (although he had never been), fixed the lead, calling himself "a high-ranking person in the church," funny that a few minutes later, Mr. Ivanov admitted that he did not consider and a Scientologist. And after leading invited Ivanov to repent, that it is reasonable to ask, why should he repent? Here the "purification of sins," Mr. Ivanov joined Alexander Dvorkin, who recalled with bitterness Ivanov, "Do you remember how you showed by Scientology against me in court?". At that Mr. Ivanov had no qualms, he replied - "Yes. And he said that you have mold in the language and blood on his hands. And I justified it said. " Armstrong tried to doubt the competence of Ivanov, but Ivanov, in turn, questioned Armstrong, "and I'm doubtful your competence in this regard." And probably rightly, it is difficult to trust a man run from justice. Here are a motley crowd had gathered to denounce Scientology on May 19. Ekaterina Ivanova Rozhaeva prompted: "there is still hypnosis," to which Ivanov replied: "Hypnosis is not there at all." In connection with all this nonsense, there is a substantial question as to why editorial program "Live" has gathered all these people in the studio? Was not charged with any judicial decision, nor sounded not a single fact which would have a specific offender officer in the church. There were no opinions themselves Scientologists. Finally, none of the "victims" did not prove harm inflicted, and the woman involved in the transmission as the victim is confused in the names, mispronouncing the word Scientology and Dianetics. Why was raised this whole spectacle? Let us turn to the media law. Article 51: "Do not use this Law of journalists' rights in order to conceal or falsify publicly important information, rumors spread in the guise of authentic reports ...." Many of the statements except as studio guests with rumors can not be named. As faithful Scientologists refer to such transfer, in which their religion defiled and presented a television audience? Article 49 of the media law says - "In the exercise of professional journalist must respect the rights and legitimate interests, the honor and dignity of individuals and organizations." Such disregard for the faithful Scientologists show incompetence or dense, or a custom character transfer. And once again turn to the law on mass media "may not use the journalist's right to distribute information to discredit a citizen or individual categories of citizens solely on the basis of gender, age, race or ethnic origin, language, religion, profession, place of residence and work, as well as because of their political beliefs. " Such a transfer, is likely to discredit journalism, television image and missed the transfer.

And I feel sorry for the Orthodox Church. After all, it teaches humility. But Dworkin certainly not similar to the humble. He just destroys religion itself. only worth reading the signs of the sect. They are no different from belonging to any religion. It's just not a head not natyanesh - by Dworkin turns out that the Orthodox also CERT!! And just for that it can be planted as an extremist, but under the new legislation, and to deprive another of his property. Where ever heard that Orthodox men gained fugitives, which is the Armtsrong, which also boasts of this fact.

The blogosphere is common, if readers do not like are the messages, he starts asking questions about the identity of the author, instead of specifying the real disadvantages of the publication, if any. In our Constitution, which is the basic law, they say, "Everyone is guaranteed freedom of conscience and religion, including the right to profess, individually or jointly with others any religion or no religion, to freely choose, possess and disseminate religious and other convictions and act in accordance with ". So I can be a Scientologist, Christian, Muslim or Jew, the essence of the publication as it may not apply.

"... Such a transfer, is likely to discredit journalism, television image and missed the transfer." It says very politically correct. But, speaking directly transfer violates all of the above laws. To acknowledge this to be honest with yourself and have an unbiased opinion on things. Actually like to see what activities or what Dworkin does not sektovedenie (the study of sects), and inciting ordinary all at all (as some dibs at podezda). To cover their delisch he uses the ROC, and is friendly with the West (neprda a "patriot"). But for such a friendship with the ROC Dworkin does not honor. The church seems to have caught him seriously. Very unpleasant to watch as the faithful "pounce" on people who look at life different from their own. Author of the article thank you for daring to express their opinions, rather than move into the general flow.

Not the first time I read the columns from this author and I can say that this time he is very excited Russian TV. Author and so can be suspected in very close attention to the TV, but this time something happened out of the ordinary. The author, you are Scientologist?

Vyacheslav29.06.2011 12:08

Dworkin, Armstrong and another "father", God forgive me, just like three rakish horses just coalesced in an effort to spread lies about the Church of Scientology. Deceitful people at once seen, they fear, are in fear and horror of what someone learns of their prespupleniya. These "pepper" to file criminal charges for inciting religious hatred and defamation.

There has been a decision by the Russian “Press Council” that Scientology was unfairly treated in the June 23, 2011 broadcast of a panel discussion on Russia 1 television program "Pryamoy Efir." Gerry and Dr. Alexander Dvorkin participated in the program.

The “Press Council” was apparently established by the “Russian Union of Journalists. ” Also apparently, its decisions do not have any force and do not compel anybody to anything. The “Press Council” has given the Scientologists an undeserved PR win, which hopefully will become a very well deserved PR flap.

What purports to be the entire dossier was posted on March 4, 2013 on the presscouncil.ru website, where there is a photo of the council watching Gerry on "Pryamoy Efir" when the complaint was heard on February 7, 2013.

The complainants were “members of the Church of Scientology of Moscow,” and the applicants who attended the Council meeting were OSA agent Yuri Maximov and lawyer Yury Yershov.

This is a Google-translation of the Press Council’s announcement of the decision on its site:

There is a lengthy 2-part video of the entire hearing on vimeo. The 2011 TV show was reviewed at the hearing. Gerry appears at 11:14 of Part 1.

Part 2

Here's a 12 March 2013 article about the decision on portal-credo.ru:



Portal-credo.ru links to an article about the decision on sova-center.ru:



We have been told that the material boils down to Yuri Maximov saying that the "Pryamoy Efir" editorial staff ignored the Scientologists’ warnings before the taping of the program, that the host and guests were biased, and that the program aired negative, unfounded, and untrustworthy testimony.

Page 5 of the dossier says that the material will be posted for three weeks on the presscouncil.ru website but does not explain the reason for this time limit.

Page 2 of the dossier is the Scientology Center's Statement." The third paragraph is about Gerry:



The clip mentioned above is at 13:03 in the first video of the hearing. The other clips of Gerry played in the first video do not appear in the statement.

On May 24, 2011, portal-credo.ru posted an interview with Scientology spokesman and Russian Freedom Editor Alexei Danchenkov that black PRed Gerry, and Gerry responded on June 2, 2011: Response to Scientology Moscow Black PR

Also in 2011, Yuri Maximov posted on a Scientology site this “rebuttal” to the TV program that also black PRs Gerry:



This is a developing situation, and we will be posting more information and documents as we can. Many thanks to the kind soul who alerted us.

Thanks for posting this. Contains a lot of interesting information.

Subject: Notice of claim re: your online information about Gerry Armstrong



Dear Pryamoy Efir:

I am the Gerry Armstrong who participated in your talk show about Scientology with host Mikhail Zelenskiy that aired June 23, 2011. Thank you for inviting me, and also for airing the show.

I am writing concerning the information about me published on your web site at http://pryamoj-efir.ru/dzherald-armstrong/

The first two paragraphs of this information are generally accurate, and appear to be based on my own statements during your talk show or a similar venue.

The rest of the information-- the last five paragraphs -- however, were copied virtually verbatim from a web site created and controlled by Scientology. http://religiousfreedomwatch-ru.org/religious-extremists/gerald-armstrong

That web site exists to beastify people that Scientology targets as "enemies." These are people who speak out about Scientology's fraud, abuse and criminal and antisocial behavior.

The material about me on that site is what Scientology calls "black propaganda." It includes lies about me that Scientologists know are lies. The purpose of Scientology's black propaganda in its "scripture" is to destroy the repute of the victim in order to destroy his credibility, relationships, livelihood and life.

It is unacceptable that someone at your company has copied and repeated Scientology's black propaganda material as if it is true. It creates the appearance that this is your program or company's conclusion about me presented as fact. I am writing to ask you to remedy this wrong immediately.

It would be appropriate if you were to find out who posted Scientology's material on your web site, and how that person was able to get away with this.

The person who was initially contacted to have me on your show was my friend and colleague Dr. Alexander L. Dvorkin, who also brought me to the studio and participated in the show. He is also a black propaganda victim on the same Scientology-controlled site that supplied you with the black propaganda material on me. I will send a copy of this letter to Dr. Dvorkin, and trust him to further communicate to you to make sure that the damage done by your use of that material is remedied.

Scientology uses Dr. Dvorkin's association with me to beastify or vilify him, and uses my association with Dr. Dvorkin to beastify me. This black propaganda on me on your site also contains a specific reference to Dr. Dvorkin that is false and defamatory. It falsely accuses us of being together at a meeting of a hate group in Russia.

I have never been to any meeting of any hate group in Russia or anywhere, ever since I left Scientology.

I apologize for only being able to address this matter in English. Please feel free, however, to write back to me in Russian.

Please forward this letter to the proper person for dealing with such matters in your company.

And please feel free to contact me at any time.

I look forward to hearing from you what you propose right away.

Sincerely,

Gerry Armstrong

Subject: A question to work out

Gerald,

My name is Nikolay and I am representing the Religious Freedom Watch Russia. Recently you've been to Russia and RFWRU team is working on some materials on your activity as a critic of Scientology.

We want to make an article on site and we'd like to workout some moments with you. Just to make a try, let's start from that question:

As you say, there were several physical assaults (six?) and several threats of murder toward you and once you've been almost pushed away from highway. Have you made corresponding statements to police and do you have a police records on that?

I hope you don't mind to have this conversation with me as we want to recreate the whole story picture using certain and reliable facts and documents. So your answers may affect the final state of the article.

Dear Mr. Varshavsky:

Thank you for your communication.

I'm glad you only say that my answers may affect the final state of your article about me. If you'd said that my answers will affect the final state of your article, I'd almost have to laugh. All the answers and facts in the world haven't affected what Scientology and Scientologists have written about me over the past many years.

No, I don't mind having this conversation with you. I've tried religiously, in fact, to find a Scientologist who would honestly engage me about my experiences and knowledge, and so far failed utterly. I wrote last year to Mike Rinder, who executed years of fair game against me for Scientology, about my appeal and my long search for an honest Scientologist. http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/archives/4717 If you become that first honest Scientologist, I would be forever grateful, and it would be a boon and blessing for you too.

I'm glad that you say you want to recreate the whole picture of my story. You doubtlessly understand that I don't believe you. Importantly, for me to begin to believe you, I need some evidence that you honestly do, as you say, want to recreate that whole story picture. I want to recreate it in a number of arenas, most importantly in court, under oath, to judge and jury. I know my whole picture story well enough to know if you become honest about wanting to recreate it. And, as I mentioned, I've kept my eyes peeled for any sign of an honest Scientologist for many years.

Since the time I left the cult, Scientology and Scientologists have been trying without cessation to prevent my whole picture story from being recreated. All of the assaults and threats from Scientologists or their agents that you're asking about were motivated by that same Scientology-wide intention, to prevent my whole picture story from being recreated by shuddering me into silence.

What Scientology and Scientologists over the past many years have tried to make the world think is my whole picture story has been what your scripture calls black propaganda or black PR. Your web site is a black PR organ for the Scientology cult, and your page on me is black PR. http://religiousfreedomwatch-ru.org/religious-extremists/gerald-armstrong

Scientology and Scientologists have pretended for those past many years that their black PR on me is my whole picture story, but that is simply more black PR, more lies. Your black PR on me is part of my whole picture story, but as black PR. Similarly, the assaults and threats you're asking about are part of my whole picture story, as assaults and threats.

Your Russian black PR page on me is, of course, a virtually direct translation of Scientology's "Gerry Armstrong" page on its US-based black PR web site with the same design and name as yours, "Religious Freedom Watch." http://www.religiousfreedomwatch.org/anti-religious-extremists/gerald-armstrong/ Both Scientology black PR sites, of course, are controlled by cult head David Miscavige.

It is well known that the individual under Miscavige who is the "administrative contact" for the English language black PR site is Joel Phillips. I wrote Miscavige and Phillips objecting to their page on me, principally their very sick black PRing me as an "anti-religious extremist." One of Phillip's functions, and presumably one of yours, is to hide the black PR's source, which is Miscavige. http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/writings/armstrong-ltr-miscavige-2006-11-23.html

Because of their virtually conscienceless condition, which is tragically very common among Scientologists, neither Miscavige nor Phillips responded to my reasoned objection, but have continued their black PR attack. Scientologists' attack reaction is, as you know, justified, and in fact mandated, in your scripture from Scientology inventor L. Ron Hubbard. He directed the "right thing" Scientologists are to do about "any threat:" "Don't ever defend. Always attack." Obviously Scientologists view me, or tell each other they view me, as a threat, or you wouldn't attack me, even with your black PR pages on me.

As I'm sure you are aware, a document purporting to be a spreadsheet of West United States Scientologists who are trusted to do "volunteer" work for your Office of Special Affairs was recently released, and stated that Joel Phillips: "Works for Invest OSA INT." "Invest," or "Investigations," as you know, is a Scientology euphemism for "Intelligence." Phillips works for the Office of Special Affairs International's Intelligence Section. This fact was already obvious to people like me, and not really vital because he works for Miscavige who runs everything including intel, but it was nice to see Phillips' intel work acknowledged in an internal Scientology document .https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?hl=en_US&hl=en_US&key=tA86cAV6FR9JdHCatI7yQLA&authkey=CKvMx94N#gid=11

His wife Tina Phillips, according to this spreadsheet, also does work for OSA.

It is understandable that Phillips, who is a clear Scientology black propagandist, works for OSA Intelligence, because Hubbard wrote in your scripture that black PR basically "is an intelligence technique." If you really do, as you claim, represent Scientology's Russian black PR site, it is reasonable as well to acknowledge that you also work for Scientology's Intelligence apparatus. Your effort here to obtain details from me would be for your cult's malevolent intelligence purposes, and not to recreate my whole picture story.

Phillips claimed authorship of a 2007 article "Behind the Scenes at Religious Freedom Watch," that mentions the Religious Freedom Watch "teams." The backbone of the site is the investigators. We have a team in America and a team in Europe. Sometimes they travel back and forth. These people have years of training and have served in very high positions. They make it their life's work to identify bigots, zealots, extremists, perverts and terrorists. You will see the fruits of their work on the site. Everything is checked and documented. You won't just find a lot of hair brained yelling and screaming. You're going to find photographs, interviews, court papers, in a word, PROOF that what you're reading is true. http://religiousfreedomwatch.wordpress.com/2007/08/22/behind-the-scenes-at-religious-freedom-watch/

I imagine that you are on the European team that sometimes travels back and forth to America. Your team works for OSA Intel Int.

It is indeed possible to see the fruits of your Religious Freedom Watch teams on your sites, because your fruits are black PR. The checking and documenting that is done is to check and document that the black PR is what Miscavige intends and accepts. The yelling and screaming, of course, is probably done by the victims of your "investigations" and your black PR. But that Miscavige, Phillips, you, or anyone else has proof that what people read on your sites is true, is a conscienceless lie. Miscavige's Religious Freedom Watch teams' life's work is to black PR Scientology's victims as bigots, zealots, extremists, perverts, terrorists, etc.

It is instructive about Scientology and Scientologists that on your US-based site all the other Scientology targets and I are labeled and black-PRed as "anti-religious extremists;" and on your Russian site we are all labeled and black PRed as "religious extremists." This contradiction even shows up in the URLs for your two sites' black PR pages on me.
http://www.religiousfreedomwatch.org/anti-religious-extremists/gerald-armstrong/
http://religiousfreedomwatch-ru.org/religious-extremists/gerald-armstrong

I am, as Miscavige and Phillips know, and doubtlessly you know, neither a religious extremist nor an anti-religious extremist. I know all the other people personally that you black PR on your Russian site as "religious extremists," and I am convinced that you Scientologists from Miscavige on up, know that these people you target are also neither religious extremists nor anti-religious extremists.

You imply that it was my recent trip to Russia that precipitated your Russian Religious Freedom Watch team's getting to work on materials to recreate the whole story picture about me. This could be ironic to me because your Russian Religious Freedom Watch black PR site was a factor in my decision and planning to make the trip. I also mentioned your site in a number of talks or interviews I participated in during this trip to Russia.

In that sense, I could thank you and your fellow black PR agents because my visit to your great country (I'm assuming you're really a Russian, and not Danny Sherman with an accent) was more successful, memorable and meaningful than I ever imagined. I actually consider your contacting me now, even if for your antisocial intelligence purposes, a big win from my Russian mission. I returned to Canada never more hopeful that Scientology's persecution of the good people who might act in concert with me can be terminated, and that justice for Scientology's victims, including me, can be achieved.

I became aware of your Russian black PR site last November on the WhyWeProtest forum in a thread entitled "Russian Orthodox Priest now on RFW (Russian version)."
http://forums.whyweprotest.net/threads/russian-othodox-priest-now-on-rfw-russian-version.65205/

Obviously, your Russian site focuses its black PR attacks on Russian targets, principally Dr. Alexander L. Dvorkin, who is, to Scientology's leadership, a bigger threat to Scientology's plans and operations in Russia than I am. Your black PR on me in Russian, thus far, as I mentioned, is merely the mindless regurgitation of a translation of Miscavige's black PR on me from Scientology's US-based site.

While I was still in Russia, as I'm sure you know, another Scientology-affiliated Internet entity "portal-credo.ru" published much the same black PR in Russian in the form of an interview about me by one Valery Stepanov with your fellow Scientologist Alexei Danchenkov. I had the article translated and then posted a response for Mr. Danchenkov, and for everyone else, on my blog. http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/archives/5011

Because of the facts and nature of your relationship with me, and because of the legal implications of your communication, I will do the same with this response. I am sure you've already read my response to the black PR attributed to Mr. Danchenkov, so let me urge you to read it again, because it applies and responds to several black PR points on your Russian Religious Freedom Watch site. It's also part of my whole picture story, and necessary if you really want to recreate it.

The principal purpose for your black PR on me on your site, of course, is to black PR Dr. Dvorkin, by association with me, since I am an already extensively black PRed Scientology victim. On your US-based Religious Freedom Watch site, you Scientologists black PR many more people by associating us with each other, as I noted above, and identifying us all as "anti-religious extremists." I had responded to the black PR association on this site between Dr. Dvorkin and me in my 2006 letter to Miscavige and Phillips.

[Your black PR:] "At a meeting of hate groups in Russia, Armstrong met with deprogramming proponent Alexander Dvorkin."

[My response:] I have never attended any meeting of hate groups in Russia at any time, nor have I attended any meeting of any hate groups in any other country. I have met Dr. Dvorkin several times in Russia and in other countries, he has translated for me on several occasions, and I have been able to observe him for several hours at a time on many occasions. At no time did I observe him attend a meeting of hate groups, discuss attending any meeting of hate groups, or suggest that I or anyone else attend any meeting of hate groups. At no time did he propose deprogramming me or anyone else, as you define "deprogramming" on your hate sites; i.e., activities involving kidnapping and assaults or such stupidities. He is a Doctor of Theology, a religious man in the sincerest rational meaning of the word, and a teacher in religious studies and in religious organizations. He is one of the people identified on your hate sites as an anti-religious extremist that I know with complete certainly is not an anti-religious extremist. http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/writings/armstrong-ltr-miscavige-2006-11-23.html

Your black PR attacks on Dr. Dvorkin and me by association with each other has actually made us associate more with each other, so I thank all you Religious Freedom Watch team members for that. I think this is an expected result among conscienceful people whose associations or relationships people like your team members attack and threaten with your black PR. I had the opportunity, in fact, to observe Dr. Dvorkin each day during my recent trip to Russia, in many settings and circumstances, and over many hours, and became even more convinced of the blackness of Scientology and Scientologists' black PR on him. I also became more determined to end your persecution of such good people. So thank you for that as well.

I mentioned above that there are legal implications to your communication to me, which I'm sure you know about, but perhaps haven't fully understood. Whether you are a formally employed OSA staff member or merely a "volunteer," or if you really believe you are only a Religious Freedom Watch team member, you, Mr. Varshavsky, are a "beneficiary" of Scientology's infamous Armstrong injunction. This order of the California Superior Court prohibits me from communicating about Scientology or about you or any other injunction beneficiary. I wrote about the injunction, its beneficiaries, and how it relates to Russia and Russians in my recent response to your fellow beneficiary Alexei Danchenkov. I said that a major purpose of my trip to Russia was, in fact, to discuss the injunction and encourage action to get it declared unlawful and lawfully unenforceable. What times I was assaulted or threatened by whom are extremely tangential to the live, personal, global issue of your injunction, your efforts to enforce it, and how you use it.

The beneficiaries in this matter are every Scientology or Scientology-affiliated church, organization or entity and all of their officers, directors, agents, representatives, employees, volunteers, successors, assigns and legal counsel. As you can envision, this is a cult-sized number of beneficiaries around the world, and you can easily find yourself among them. The injunction also prohibits me from assisting victims of any of you beneficiaries, or assisting people adverse in some way to any of you. People adverse to Scientology and Scientologists, and adverse to any normal people who are beneficiaries, comprise, as you know, the Suppressive Person class. These prohibitions are unlawful, the injunction was obtained by unlawful means, and Scientology's actions to enforce the injunction have been unlawful.

Each Scientologist or Scientology agent who assaulted or threatened me, and the people like you who black PR me or run covert ops on me, are all beneficiaries of the injunction that prohibits me from communicating about any of you. Your Scientology-affiliated entity Religious Freedom Watch is a beneficiary of the injunction. It is impossible, of course, to tell, or recreate, my whole picture story without violating your injunction's prohibitions. The prohibitions contain no lower limit for what constitutes a "violation;" so one word from me about Scientology or any of the beneficiaries, or the slightest assistance to a Suppressive Person, are valid, punishable injunction violations. Directing you to documents, or telling or recreating anything from my past, so that you, as you claim, are able to recreate my whole picture story, requires clearly gargantuan violations on my part.

The Armstrong injunction's prohibitions, as you know, also apply to persons "acting in concert" with me. The prohibitions are just as unlawful for people acting in concert with me as they are for me personally. People acting in concert with me, in fact, comprise a class of citizens that you beneficiaries unlawfully threaten, and whose rights you unlawfully violate. To act in concert with me means that people do the things that I, and they, are prohibited from doing: discussing Scientology and you beneficiaries, and assisting your victims or opponents. The people who most act in concert with me are those who facilitate my violations of your injunction. Such people assist me in some way to tell or recreate my whole picture story, or assist me to assist the beneficiaries' victims or opponents. If you honestly wanted to recreate my whole story picture, you would be acting in concert with me, for which I would be grateful. Even now, you are inciting me, or perhaps even extorting me, to violate your injunction.

You write that you want to recreate my whole story picture using certain and reliable facts and documents, and you ask me if I have made statements to the police about the Scientology beneficiaries' assaults and threats, and do I have records of that. Yes I have, and yes I do.

More importantly, you beneficiaries already possess many, if not all, of such statements. You beneficiaries also possess all the records of your own statements about me to police, in numerous cities and countries.

David Miscavige can issue an order that all of OSA Intel's, RTC's, et al.'s records relating to me be supplied to you, or me or anyone, and it all could be done in a few days. The beneficiaries have known about assaults and threats against me since 1982, and have known that the number of physical assaults has stood at six since August 2004, which was the last assault recorded. I think we can both agree that there is no real urgency to getting facts and documents from me relating to twenty-nine years of assaults and threats because you now want to recreate my whole story picture.

Nevertheless, to make my work collecting and organizing my facts and documents for you as efficient and unburdensome as possible, please provide me all the facts and documents you beneficiaries possess about me. If you do this, I will be able to see if you are missing any facts or documents that would prevent you from recreating my whole picture story, which you say you want to do. I would then provide you with the facts and documents you're missing, and a whole picture story would practically be guaranteed.

One final note, if you do become honest, and perhaps can't stand the ignominy of being a beneficiary in Scientology's unlawful injunction that suppresses and destroys so many people's basic human rights, please take advantage of this Beneficiary Removal Form http://gerryarmstrong.ca/archives/267

I look forward to receiving the facts and documents I've requested.

Sincerely,

Gerry Armstrong

Mr. Armstrong,

I have to admit, that's beyond my idea of what the constructive communication is. Six pages in response to six sentences? We are not intended to get involved into anything like this since that's definitely out of our province.

Roughly speaking we find, prepare and publish documents. That's our job. We are not here to convince someone or advocate something with respect to who we are. Never did it before with all the contacts we had so far. Sure never will. The one can refer to <about us> page on the site.

And finally, talking business: this is very unusual to read about your concerns about the <legal implications> while having your site with such a content and considering your activity, in particular travel to Russia.

Anyway I am by no means urging you to violate any of your obligations if you believe it is applicable.
