    An interesting article from The Undergound Bunker on the subject that is my constant companion.

    I refused to stop posting about scientology. I know I'm not alone in this, let's revisit some stories on this subject.

    Some days are really hard, and I don't care if OSA knows it. To turn children against their mother for the sake of scientology is evil beyond words. I am human, not a robot and maybe one day those who use despicable practices like disconnection will come to appreciate the fact that real emotion, connection and love is something worth fighting for instead of working on it's destruction. The Bubble World of scientology has no comparison and the people within may fool themselves on that score ... but what they have is superficial and essentially meaningless on any deep level. You can't fake it with beaming (apparent) Success stories and flurries of money being used to try and buy love. Just wake up people!

    Hubbard simply could not tolerate any DOUBT in a scio's mind. SPs sow the seeds of doubt which leads the scio to question Hubbard's look critically at his dubious claims...and to wake up to the fact that Hubbard was a gigantic liar. Then the money stream from that scio would dry up. Thus, the only way he could stop this from happening is to enforce the disconnection prevent any scio from talking with an SP and begin to doubt Hubbard. Family members got into the cross-hairs because they have the most influence on a scio and in most cases have daily contact with the scio. If scio Mary woke up every day in her house and Mom (SP) engaged in some "suppressive" conversation, even if to lightly question scio doctrine, Mary would eventually break from the cult.

    It is a despicable doctrine but Hubbard didn't give a shit. He knew damn well the pain it caused and the broken families that followed. Hubbard was the asshole of assholes of the world. He cared only about himself and his cult and fuck anyone who disagreed or criticized him.

    Exactly right. Also other family members who have contact with the "SP" need to be isolated from them by any means possible in case the "SP's" influence gets back to the scio via them. It's par for the course. Thank goodness my parents refused to do that to me, despite the pressure.
