Criminal liability?

Edited by another user.
Last edit: 20:34, 7 May 2013

Do you think the Scientology organization, or its management and leadership including David Miscavige, have exposed themselves to criminal liability and possibly may face prosecution in courts in countries such as United States or Australia, related to this story?

Oh, if only. If you want to make a million dollars, or evade criminal liability for your acts, start a religion.

Tom Morris (talk)23:01, 6 December 2011

That almost sounds like a creative alteration of a quote historically attributed to the founder of the Scientology organization ...

What an Insult to Humanity

Scientology should never have been allowed to begin - it has become akin to Nazi Germany, but more well-hidden. They use the justice system to keep justice away, and their slaves' - I mean disciples' - sense of decency to avoid the obligations of decency. Religion apparently excuses them from any liability and they will never be punished. Something must be done, something beyond all scales dreamed before. But to do that, we would need as many people as there are scientologists and they would have to be as cutthtroat and at filthy rich. Anybody got thirty trillion dollars in stolen court proceedings tucked away somewhere? (talk)15:40, 16 January 2012

Expansion of this article and updating it with progress on the story would be great (talk)02:11, 16 December 2011

It's a news article, that's not done with news articles - they are a record of what was known at the time.

Instead, if there are significant developments (and someone interested to write it) a followup article is written.

the exposure of this sort of cult makes the world a better place. (talk)14:15, 9 December 2011

This well documented story has confirmed a longheld suspicion I have had. Scientology is not a religion. (talk)20:30, 2 December 2011

Comments from feedback form - "I believe no religion on earth..."

I believe no religion on earth is involved in as much destructive activity as Scientology. It regularly and systematically destroys families and lies about this and other activities the public would not accept. IMO it is awful and its abusive behavior should be exposed. Thank God for those with the courage to do so. (talk)14:55, 2 December 2011

All religion is destructive (talk)15:43, 2 December 2011

But scientology is much more so than the average religion.

If her allegations are even partly true, it is still very wrong. And legal action should be taken against those responsible. It is in violation of human rights. (talk)19:08, 2 December 2011

Life In the Godless Cult of Sin and Greed

Edited by another user.
Last edit: 19:50, 2 December 2011

To be sure of what will happen to the mailing list an/or contact info--learn what will happen to you first: The Godless Cult of Sin and Greed is all that we Ex-Scientologists claim it is. 1. It kills, beats up, harms, harasses, stalks, and in always possible victimizes any ex-member and anyone else that opposes their evil agenda. 2. In the Sea Org., it forces its slave members to get abortions. It kills innocent babies so the mother can be more productive as a low paid slave. 3. It uses its slaves to repair the new bought buildings with money you have donated, which remain nearly empty years later, for pennies an hour. Its non-volunteer contracted workers get the lowest wages (.10 to .40 cents an hour) in the civilized world and work the longest (70-80) hours. 4. It exposes all your own sins and secrets in your endless Security Checks and/or required non-voluntary confessionals to bring you harm and destroy you, when you expose their evil Godless agenda and policy letters. 5. It has its own prison camp (The Rehabilitation Project Force, or RPF-- punishment duty for unsatisfactory workers and children) with Ronbot guards with automatic assault weapons, where you are sent if you fail to be very productive or angry or upset with your slavery. Slaves are not allowed to voluntarily leave or even escape and will be shot if they try. 95% of the slaves that finally are allowed to leave, soon leave the cult. The other 5% are sent to “fair game” the rest. 6. It has broken up hundreds of thousands of families by their Godless policies of Disconnection and Fair Game. Many parents have committed suicide after losing their kids. 7. If you oppose them, the Godless cult sends their slaves to your neighbors, job, relatives and friends to ask questions in such a way, that makes them think you are a rapist, criminal, sociopath, drug addict, child molester, Gay or Lesbian or a deviant, without any proof or verified criminal complaint. They use this Godless tactic to ruin you, cause you to get fired, and cause your friends and relatives to avoid you or even intentionally cause you to commit suicide. 8. As a last resort they will poison your pets or let them loose to get run over, break into your house for any evidence to blackmail you, plant drugs in your car or house or hit you to make you retaliate and film you when you do, and then they will sue you and/or have you arrested. There are hundreds of other reasons to run from this Godless cult. But I think you get an idea of its evil. Please help us Independent Scientologists to bring back ethics, humanity, compassion, honesty and integrity back into the group. Help us stop them! Note! all the above has been verified as true over the years by Governments and hundreds of thousands of Ex-Scientologists.
