Barbara Graham Debunks Scientology 'President' Susan Taylor's Lies

http://www.hillnews.com/letters/020504.aspx

Scientology President Susan Taylor would have you believe that the "church" has turned over a new leaf since its repugnant behavior in the 1970s.

Typically, nothing could be further from the truth!

While it's true that the "Church" reorganized after being caught infiltrating government offices and stealing documents in the 70s, it should be noted that the "few Scientologists" brought to justice included founder L. Ron Hubbard's own wife, Mary Sue.

Hubbard went into hiding until his death in 1986.

This was the largest domestic espionage case ever perpetrated in the United States. Referred to by the Scientologists as "Operation Snow White," it was carried out under Hubbard's orders by the Guardian's Office, the church's intelligence unit.

The GO was supposedly disbanded following this debacle; in reality, it was renamed the Office of Special Affairs, and many of the old GO personnel are still active within OSA.

There are no "misunderstandings" about the Scientology organization, and criticism of its abuses and actions are stronger than ever, thanks to the Internet.

Ms. Taylor is being a bit cagey when she claims the IRS granted Scientology religious recognition. That is not a function of the IRS. In fact, the organization acquired tax-exempt status by coercion.

This "church" had high ranking IRS officials investigated, while at the same time orchestrating a barrage of nuisance lawsuits by individual Scientologists.

The IRS, in a secret agreement leaked to the Wall Street Journal, finally arrived at an agreement in which it granted them tax exempt status in exchange for a percentage of the millions of dollars in tax money owed, and the termination of hundreds of lawsuits launched by Scientology practitioners.

Ms. Taylor would like you to believe that the dirty tricks perpetrated by this fraudulent brainchild of a hack science fiction writer are no longer carried out. This is a flat-out lie! L. Ron Hubbard said, "If you want to control people, "THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN CONTROL PEOPLE IS TO LIE TO THEM. You can write that down in your book in great big letters."

Since the year 2000, Scientology has worked to discredit people who protest their abusive, destructive attacks on innocent families and critics. There is solid evidence that the Scientology organization, through one of its law firms, actively suborned perjury to destroy the career of attorney Graham Berry. The group also wielded its influence in a court case involving critic Keith Henson, who is now a fugitive in Canada. This case took place in Riverside County, California, home of Gold Base, Scientology's secret paramilitary compound.

More recently, several critics in Florida were named as suspects in the firebombing of a Scientology mission in Palm Springs, Florida. And last year, I was visited by the San Diego Criminal Intelligence Unit a week before I was scheduled to speak at the County Board of Supervisors in opposition to a Narconon facility planned in San Diego County. It seems an anonymous caller accused me of planning to bomb our local "Church" of Scientology building! The detectives who visited are now well informed about this so-called church and its abhorrent behavior.

Narconon is one of the "social programs" mentioned by Ms. Taylor in her letter.

In actuality, it is nothing more than a recruitment tool for the Church of Scientology, as are all its other front groups supposedly dedicated to dealing with social problems.

They also provide opportunities for the Scientology organization to promote itself as secular programs "based upon the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard," when the religious angle becomes awkward.

Hubbard's teachings, as well as his life, have been thoroughly debunked by legitimate scholars. He dropped out of college. He purchased a doctorate degree from Sequoia University, a mail order diploma mill. He lied about his military record to the extent that his name is included on several websites devoted to exposing phony war heros.

I wish to set the record straight here. Sure, Ms. Taylor is lying to us. By doing so, she is merely carrying out the doctrines set forth by L. Ron Hubbard. People who are interested, or merely morbidly curious, can easily research any of the names or topics I've mentioned. There is plenty of evidence online which clearly reveals that Scientology hasn't changed a bit since the 1970s. Their fifty year history is rife with criminality, abuses, deaths, and unbelievable dirty tricks! But don't take my word for it. Look for yourselves.
