Taking Liberties with Religion<snip>
More than two years ago I noted on this blog – perhaps in the comments section – that Miscavige’s defense to the statements of me, Amy, Tom, and Mike about the Hole at Miscavige’s Scientology Inc heaquarters was out and out blaming his crimes on L Ron Hubbard policy. The following are the Miscavige orchastrated responses to the original Tampa Times Truth Rundown series testimony to Miscavige’s wholesale aggravated assault & battery, false imprisonment and the psychological torture on par with Abu Ghraib prison:
That is how David Miscavige characterizes a day of Debbie Cook’s testimony in which she described false imprisonment, aggravated assault and battery, torture, and kidnapping all carried out at the direction of David Miscavige.
”Fundamental ecclesiastical matters”, “Church discipline”, “discipline, faith, and internal organization”, and – sit down if you are not already sitting – “religious liberties.” In order to invoke the law Miscavige’s counsel has cited, the church must claim the conduct Debbie has testified to is mandated by scriptures of Scientology (legally defined as the written and recorded-spoken words of L Ron Hubbard concerning Scientology).
Never mind that Miscavige, not Debbie Cook, dragged the dispute (and thus the conduct he says doesn’t belong in court) into court. Never mind that his factual nexus between L Ron Hubbard scripture and his unconscionable conduct can’t be made. Never mind that even if he could, the supreme court case cited couldn’t possibly shield the activity Debbie has testified to. Do mind, however, what this sociopath is doing.
David Miscavige is having to spend a bundle of parishioner donations to get a guy with the reputation of Spencer to tell a court with a straight face that TORTURE, KIDNAPPING, FALSE IMPRISONMENT, STALKING, AND AGGRAVATED ASSAULT AND BATTERY are STANDARD L RON HUBBARD SCIENTOLOGY RELIGIOUS PRACTICES and thus off limits for the court to even hear, let alone consider.
Miscavige wants to spend the religious recognition capital we struggled decades for to protect his heinous, serial felonies from scrutiny. More fundamentally, Miscavige – once again – wants to heave L Ron Hubbard under the bus.
Line in the sand, indeed.

Yeah, excellent post Marty! Thank you for Keeping Scientology Working (KSW)…. religious liberties is NOT to violate the scriptures of Scientology. Someone has it very wrong. Thanks for drawing the line there!

This is incredible stuff. It is time for the rank-and-file Scientologist to stand up and say that they have lost confidence in the ability of Int Management to lead this organization. Stop giving money and participating in Org activities until there is a complete change in management. Even if you don’t believe what Marty, Mike, Debbie and others are saying, then isn’t it a screaming outpoint that COB continues to appoint SPs to top leadership positions and leave them there for decades? Either way, Scientology has to change or it is going to die. It’s become a damn joke all over the world. We need a whole new board of directors, a real board with the power to post Int Execs and remove them, and with members who can also be appointed and removed (without being declared), and who are not all Sea Org members, maybe not even all Scientologists.
