How to Investigate Your Church Without Ever Hitting a Single “Enemy” Site

Notice I did not say “without hitting a single entheta” site…  But relax – there are NO websites here which contain “enemy lines” or “OT data”.  You are “allowed” to see any and all of the following, I assure you.

Every single one of the sites given here are “official” or are media interviews stating “official positions”.

Let’s start with Scientology’s official website:

Scientology » SCIENTOLOGY ATTITUDES AND PRACTICES » WHAT IS DISCONNECTION?

“There is no policy in Scientology that requires Church members to disconnect from anyone, let alone family and friends who simply have different beliefs. To the contrary, the moral code of Scientology mandates that Scientologists respect the religious beliefs of others.”

then…

You can watch Tommy Davis, official church spokesman, confirm the church position given on the above website:

“There’s no such thing as disconnection as you’re characterizing it…We consider the family to be the building block of any society…There isn’t any such policy…that’s dictating who people should or should not be in communication with…”

Now, brace yourself, this next one is not “rated G”, but since David Miscavige coached Tommy Davis what to say, and they both knew that these statements were for public consumption, it’s time for a judgement call – your judgement.  How do you think his language reflects on our religion?  Does this handling align in any way with LRH’s PR Series?  Is it in ARC with the environment?  If not, is it really justified?

The Church of Scientology’s response:

The same applies to the following.  What is the purpose LRH had for Freedom Magazine?  Does this issue align with this LRH purpose?  Is this issue appropriate to publics of Freedom? (government, opinion leaders)  Have you listened to RJ 67 lately?  If so, make your own comparisons.  This is not a spoof site – I promise!

Finally, apply the Data Series (summed up in the Investigations chapter of your Scientology Handbook).  Pull the string where you see outpoints.  Apply “Personal Integrity“.  And remember, you have many, many friends who have already done so.  We all want the same thing.  LRH’s tech available by LRH policy in churches and missions faithful to his stated purpose, as it appears here in the founding Creed:

THE CREED OF THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY

The Creed of the Church of Scientology was written by L. Ron Hubbard shortly after the Church was formed in Los Angeles on February 18, 1954.

After Mr. Hubbard issued this creed from his office in Phoenix, Arizona, the Church of Scientology adopted it as its creed because it succinctly states what Scientologists believe.

We of the Church believe

That all men of whatever race, color or creed were created with equal rights.

That all men have inalienable rights to their own religious practices and their performance.

That all men have inalienable rights to their own lives.

That all men have inalienable rights to their sanity.

That all men have inalienable rights to their own defense.

That all men have inalienable rights to conceive, choose, assist or support their own organizations, churches and governments.

That all men have inalienable rights to think freely, to talk freely, to write freely their own opinions and to counter or utter or write upon the opinions of others.

That all men have inalienable rights to the creation of their own kind.

That the souls of men have the rights of men.

That the study of the Mind and the healing of mentally caused ills should not be alienated from religion or condoned in nonreligious fields.

And that no agency less than God has the power to suspend or set aside these rights, overtly or covertly.

And we of the Church believe

That Man is basically good.

That he is seeking to Survive.

That his survival depends upon himself and upon his fellows and his attainment of brotherhood with the Universe.

And we of the Church believe that the laws of God forbid Man

To destroy his own kind.

To destroy the sanity of another.

To destroy or enslave another’s soul.

To destroy or reduce the survival of one’s companions or one’s group.

And we of the Church believe

That the spirit can be saved.

And that the spirit alone may save or heal the body.
