Another preview from Chapter Four:
Selling of Indulgences
Callous greed grows pious very fast.
– Lillian Hellman
Four hundred and ninety-five years ago Martin Luther sparked the Protestant Reformation with one seemingly innocent act. He posted what would be called his 95 Theses on the door of the Catholic church in Wittenberg, Germany for purposes of discussion. The 95 Theses were an enumerated list of abuses by the Vatican, carried out at the direction of the “infallible” pope. While many abuses were covered, the ones at first most focused upon were those connected with the practice of selling indulgences. The idea of buying one’s way to salvation, to Luther, was the most hideous single desecration of Christ.
And here is where our reflections on history come into play with respect…

The Gates of Hell
Hell has three gates: lust, anger and greed.

Some still caught in the throes of denial may be saying to themselves, “But still, to compare Miscavige to Pope Leo X? After all, Miscavige isn’t having naked little boys jump out of his birthday cake!”
If you harbored such a thought, you would be correct on one score. We have no reports of naked little boys jumping out of birthday cakes for David Miscavige. But, fact being sometimes far stranger than fiction, we have reports of far more degraded, cruel and outlandish depredations, regularly practiced by Miscavige on Scientology parishioners’ dimes and dollars.
Around 2002, already a narcissistic personality…

Sea Org Members will most likely never read this – although I do know several who managed to covertly access the internet while still in the Sea Org. So for the most part this is written for the family of the Sea Org Member.
Getting a family member out of the Sea Org is a daunting task. They are watched and guarded 24/7, and their letters and phone calls are monitored. So they cannot be honest with you about what life is really like in the Sea Org. They cannot use the internet or access e-mail. Their letters and calls will tell you that everything is wonderful, and they are doing fine and having great wins. And if you are even slightly critical of the Sea Org in your calls or letters, they will get in trouble, and you risk them being forced to “handle or disconnect.” You also risk their resentment if they perceive you as “anti-Scientology.”
I’ve read almost every post on this blog and it was time well spent.
Buy and read this book.
Marty, in his simple and straightforward style, presents the differences between a philosophy of individual Self-Determinism and a
CultC hurchCorporation gone mad, Hell-bent on domination and control.

Excerpt from Chapter Seven – Confessional:
In this wise, a new moral code is imposed upon individuals, covertly and against their own determinisms. It is exacerbated by repeated questioning about the individual’s failure to report on other Scientologists. After a while, a corporate Scientologist modifies her behavior accordingly, in order to avoid more security checks. She not only edits her own behavior and thoughts, she attempts to do the same with Scientologist friends and family members, so that she does not get into trouble for overlooking such transgressions of others. Thus, a process that was originally intended to free a person from the self-imposed mental prison she has created by her own inability to live up to what she considers right and ethical conduct becomes reversed. The preclear is instead forced to agree to a new mental prison…
