The Church of Scientology’s new enemy: Scientologists

October 23, 2009

In case you haven’t noticed, the Church is fighting a new war. They have a brand new enemy. They’re no longer fighting the Psychs, or Big Pharma. That’s old hat. They’re not even fighting Anonymous any more. They have a new enemy, one that’s more dangerous, more capable, more formidable than any they’ve ever faced.


That’s right, they are at war with their own members.

They are now telling the field that the Church has been “infiltrated.”  As “evidence,” they are presenting an HCO Information Letter from 1964 where LRH says that the Church was infiltrated.

Seriously, OSA, is that the best you can do? Come on.

First, “infiltrators” don’t announce themselves.

Secondly, the people speaking out are long-term Scientologists, high level OTs, people who have been in Scientology for two or three decades, some of them long term veteran staff and Sea Org Members. So when, exactly, did they do this “infiltration”?

No, get serious OSA.  Nobody “infiltrated” the Church.

They were already there.

Loyal, long-term veteran staff. Dedicated, top-level OTs. They were there the whole time, witnessing the outnesses, the violations of Policy, the alterations of Tech, the oppression of staff and public, the abuse, the endless push for more and more money, the demand for “compliance” to an increasing list of capricious and “mandatory” orders, the use of Ethics as a tool of control. Yes they saw it all, until they could take it no longer.

And they started speaking out. And people are listening.

So now, suddenly, you label them as “infiltrators.” Enemy agents.

And you think you can wage war on them – smear them, discredit them, rally public opinion against them. But there’s one big difference. These are not faceless government agents or nameless psychs or anonymous protesters. We know these people. They are our friends, our family, our children, our parents. These are people we have worked alongside for years, people we know, people we love.

People we trust.

So go ahead and wage your war against Scientologists. It’s a war you can’t win. Because you’re fighting the truth.

“…and truth, though fought, always in the end prevails.”

    Thank you for this awesome post! The true Scientologists are those who speak out. Those are the ones we TRUST.

    Those are the one who are not PTS to DM and saving LRH’s original policies and technology and make LRH so proud.
    We will win as an Independent Scientologist group!

    That cartoon from Pogo pretty much says it all!

    Miscavige calling us “infiltrators” is sort of like the pot calling the kettle black.

    First you have to be on the inside with an agenda that is contrary to the actual agenda of the organization.

    Wait a minute who could that be?????

    I recall the exact day I infiltrated. I read Dianetics, and LRH said a half inch back of my forehead was the greatest adventure I would ever go on, he wished I would never be the same. I took that first step on the road to truth, it is the greatest adventure I’ve ever been on, and I’ve never been the same.

    What DM and his duped staff don’t have, is Scientology ethics, tech and admin procedures to wage a successful war. That’s what I and many others DO have. When this is all over, because we do have that body of tech and the ethics necessary to its application, we’ll win. When we do, they’ll win. Real Scientology is that kind of game.

    Jeeez… this is getting more and more desperate, more and more crazy, more and more – not Scientology.

    I’m actually so embaressed that these insanely crazy accusations come from the Church of Scientology, my Church of Scientology. It’s like when that Iraqi boss told everybody when the U.S. tanks were bordering Baghdad that “everything is fine”.

    LRH would roll over in his grave.

    DM and Int Management is making such fools out of themselves that I can’t think of any other organization on earth right now so far sunken down, at least when talking about top management.

      That is so very well said, – and I feel it the exact same way…. And they have the high tech in management….. Gosh, Dianetics & Scientology is so great – this is such a petty, – LRH worked so hard to get this to the people, and someone just made tough hard bussiness of it…
      How now to study scientology? …as I want to go clear, hopefully also OT, and like to become an Auditor freelance…..

      I apreciated your comment Hubbardarian, – really! (o:=

    It appears that all-out civil war (minus guns, of course) has broken out within the Church of Scientology. Other major religions have had factions break away and form independent new groups and now the same is happening within Scientology on a scale it has not seen before.

    Yep, Rebel008 has hit the nail on the head once more and driven it clean out the other side of the 2 by 4. With the Church’s new masterful program to declare war on all Scientologists still worthy of the name, even sending out teams of people to reprogram old Scientological thinking into Miscavology thinking (follow “Command Intention,” not LRH), and to deprogram any dangerous and subversive ideas like “honor,” “personal integrity” or using Scientology to “know how to know” why, seems to me old Tommy Miscavige and Adolf Miscavige have risen into a new status: setting the standard as prime model Deprogrammers, taken up where Ted Patrick left off. Brilliant. Simply brilliant.

      Exactly Thoughtful!

        Also I was going to write before I suffered a computer glitch:

        I’ve always wondered why the Church of Scientology hung on to CAN after it forced the organization into bankruptcy?

        Now I know!

        They are just taking over from where Margaret Singer and her merry band of Mk Ultra alumni left off!

        Fortunately we have our own version of the Cult Awareness Network out here in the field and many of us are totally aware that under Miscavige, “Scientology” has become a cult.

    When I read this post I wanted to cry. We have come to this? After 36 years of devotion to my religion, to now be labeled an “infiltrator”. How sad for those who would believe such a thing and even sadder for those promoting it. They know it to be a lie. These are indeed desperation times for Scientology.

    Pitting family member against family member. Friend against friend. Parishioner against parishioner. To stoop this low is horrendous. How can anyone still “in” stand up and say “I’m a Scientologist”? It’s come to be synonymous with human rights abuses, extortion, blackmail, cults, religious fanatics etc etc. I”m truly sorry for this..but it’s a fact. It will take years to repair the damage if it ever gets repaired. And restoring trust? That may take decades.

    Very well done David Miscavage. You are accomplishing what you set out to accomplish.

      There are many LRH tools and successful programs to handle a ‘muddy field’. Don’t despair. It’s like a guy who has been sitting in a secondary in grief for decades. One session, it’s gone.

      We have our work ahead, yes, but many tools and the real wins of Scientology can blow out any past by-passed charge, upset, out-ruds, the works. This will turn out all right.

      First we get in ethics on the top, DM and any dupes handled. With ethics in, tech can go in and that will resolve it all.

      Stiff upper lip, eye on the prize, flourish and prosper. We’re winning.

    There’s another way to handle a muddy field – get out of the mud!

    It’s quite amazing that this is the level DM is now stooping too. I find it hard to believe that many Scientologists will believe this nonsense, so it may work in our favour.

    This is a great post. It illuminates the difference between these “new enemies” and the “old enemies”. When Scientologists find their friends on the CoS shit list, they start doubting their church. It’s a whole new footbullet game OSA is playing here.

    They mean, these people infiltrated decades ago and OSA didn’t spot them. Epic fail.

    Right, we “infiltrated” the organization.

    I worked for 27 years with little sleep, almost no pay, gave up family, was never able to have children or a normal life since the age of 14 and they call it “enemy infiltration”?

    Why, because I reported witnessing their self-appointed “religious leader” repeatedly commit assault & battery and actually had a mind of my own to think it wasn’t okay and report it?

    It’s AGAINST THE LAW and people normally GO TO JAIL for such acts.

    “Everyone knows” (especially OSA) that crimes like that should be kept secret because the ULTIMATE crime is causing any bad PR for the church, right? It doesn’t matter if someone nearly gets killed. It doesn’t matter who gets hurt – just don’t TELL anyone about it because that’s the bigger “sin”.

    Come on!

    The bottom line is the “church” of Scientology is completely out of control and dangerous with a sociopath in charge. I don’t care how many new buildings they renovate or how big the stages are for their continuous PR events.

    This “infiltration” accusation is just more cover up. And any sensible person will be able to see right through it.

    I don’t suppose they’re claiming that the defectors are squirrels, too? Didn’t they say something similar about the conspirators of Operation Snow White, in which Hubbard dodged a silver bullet using his own wife?

    Everyday I find another website that confirms my decision to leave the church. I am a Scientologist and learned to “Think for myself.”
    Of course this kind of thinking is frowned upon by most members and staff of my former church…as I lurk on the web and find out what happened to former friends and comm lines who mysteriously disappeared or got declared.
    A few years ago when I had been away from constant immursion of Scientology (as it is now in the church), I was able to look at it from the outside in and did not like what I saw.
    I looked back at my involvement to a time, when I actually ENJOYED being a Scientolgist on course without constant pressure to think, act, and do all of the same things from courses, to contributing, to viewing people who were not Scientologists in a certain way.
    When I was alone in the “wog world”,I realized how many wonderful beings there were that were NOT Scientologists and how cloistered my life and how narrow my viewpoint had become.
    Well…I’m way out of that now and discovering friends in the same lifeboat! I have my LRH materials, and my believe in myself and will soon be finding out who my friends really are.
