It was bound to happen, and now it has.
Today the Mail & Guardian featured a full-length exposé article on the Church’s current state of affairs – both in South Africa and Internationally. In addition to many other issues covered, the article exposes details of the en masse declares, enforced disconnections, harassment and fair gaming of good people and their families, denigration of senior OT’s and attacks on former long-serving & loyal Scientologists.
This result rests squarely on the shoulders of the Church – that fact cannot be denied. For them to think that their ongoing fair-gaming, harrasment and nefarious activities would not eventually be revealed in the South African public domain is naive to say the least.
True to nature, the Church has gone straight into “deny-attack” mode as stated by the CO OSA when she was approached for comment:
“Gaetane Asselin, a senior church member who arrived from one of the church’s main bases in California late last year when the alleged purges began, spoke to the M&G on the church’s behalf…………..”
” Asselin would not comment on matters currently before the court. She dismissed the allegations by former members, noting that the claims by apostates of any religion are not reliable.”
Of course with the Church placing all the blame on “apostates” and steadfastly denying their culpability in this unholy mess, the M&G reporter knew there had to be more to the story and started digging. And so the BIC blog was found. Pandora’s box was opened. We were asked for further information and assistance, and naturally we obliged. (Please note that the upper-level data was NOT supplied by BIC).
