Yes Barb, well done! If you plant the seed of curiosity within just one
Sea Org kid it may blossom into a child confronting the truth and
reality. If only one child listens then you have saved one child.

To The Church of Scientology, The Sea Org, The Religious Freedom
Network and the Office Of Special Affairs (et al): Why not let your
children explore the internet and the world around them and let them
make the choice as to whether or not to stay in Scientology? Would that
not be the 'total freedom' L. Ron Hubbard spoke and wrote about so
often and is the mainline in your public relations and promotions?

Lies dissolve in the light of Truth. To continue a lie one must lie
about the Truth and call that Truth lies.

One must always be kept in the dark to re-inforce lies - and tell those
kept in the dark that the light that they see is really the darkness
and that their isolated world is the only true light for only the true
hope for those not in the darkness.

Sea Org children: When you are also brave enough to demand your rights
as a citizen of your country then maybe you can explore these
Scientology-critical sites. Read what is posted and decide for yourself
who may be right and who may be wrong. NO ONE is ever entirely right
and NO ONE is every entirely wrong. That's just part of life - nothing
is black-and-white; everything is a shade a grey.

Sea Org children:

Read everything.

Make up your own minds... you'll need to learn to do this; it is part
of adulthood.

Beware of any 'advice' by anyone who is really telling you what to
think; you can tell the difference: being told what and how to think
results in punishment if you do not do it: advice has consequences,
good and/or bad that you will discover for yourself.

I came into scientology when I was 17 years old - I left when I was 35
years old. I had to start my life anew. I had to work extra hard to
make up for 18 years of not earning. Everything people normally do
much younger. I vowed to give my kids a better start than I made for
myself.

My daughter was born into scientology. We left when she was quite
young. She did her schooling and then went to university. She studied

sound and TV production and has just graduated. She is working her
first job. She is a female DJ and obviously heavilly into music. She
teaches kids to DJ. She has travelled to many countries and has just
learnt to surf. She has been riding horses since she was 6 years old
and has had three horses/ponies. At the moment she is learning
dressage. She has boyfriends, a car, a flat of her own and she can
talk to ANYONE she wants. And she does - because she is very outgoing.


She is better at communication than me - an OT! I love her to bits as
I do her younger brother. I am a very proud dad!!


Sea Org kids - what you have isn't life. Read Barbz message again -
think about it.


You are told scientology will deliver something to you - it won't. As
I said I
came in mid 1960's as a 17 year old boy. Scientology does NOT give
what it promises - I promise you. The rest of the world thinks
scientologist are aggressive looneys. They are - but it doesn't have
to be that way for you. Good luck.

Email me if you want to swear at me or ask a question. I can talk to
anyone and if you have the courage so can you.

God (Creator, Lord, Great Spirit, any power greater than yourself
except for L. Ron Hubbard)...
Grant me;
The serentity to accept the things I cannot change,
[you CANNOT change your past with Scientology]
The courage to accept the things I cannot change,
[you CAN change your future in Scientology]
And the wisdom to know the difference.

You do not even have to believe anyone or anything will hear this
prayer... it WILL be heard. That's something called 'Faith' rather than
'policy' or 'tech' or 'ethics orders'.

Hey warts Schwarz...by this time of day, all the good little drones are
back in their hive doing slave stuff. They won't be online again until
next Saturday. You better get up early to reach them. Get your poop in a
bag and shuffle on down to wherever you have internet access, girlie.

Unlike you, all I have to do is get up, boot up, and start coffee, in
that order. That's why I post early in the ayem. You don't even have a
phone, do you? <mimics puzzled concern>

Hubbard was a very clever man. Mixed up by psychiatrists as the agents of
the church of christ.

Well Scientolgy is not a religion but the orgs are a religious order which
is organised like a ship. There is a captain and various ranks and grades.

The duties include cleaning, washing, cooking and keeping healthy with diets
and vitamins and exercises and purification means using the toilet and
showering to get rid of toxins both natural and artificial.

Food is to be natural and organic grown on organic farms I've never tasted
food so good as I buy in the little canteen for $3 or so.

I almost got better overnight they saved my life one night when collapsed
with 3 bullets in my chest (one in my heart) after being under a mini atom
bomb explosion in London when people around me just melted away and a dog
just vanished, and the stress of switching off 5 20 Mega ton bombs I sort of
found in homes near me after some terrorists shot the family in their
houses, after my emergancy operastion, some thing like a brand new heart or
just an angioplast or two and the bullets taken out, one from my heart the
others somewhere else, made me cough a bit and just collapse, well they
stuffed vitamines down my throat becaise I also have pernicious anemia.

Lifes better now.

I don't know what they believe, but it isn't xenu and stuff itis not
available unless you pay them the $6000 but if yo've got three hours to
spare you may be allowed to watch a terrible video which will fill you with
terrible fear, about people being dragged screaming to their execution and
sobbing and crying for mercy as their execution grown near. In the gulags
called hospitals for those cerified insane for stepping out of line with the
catholic church. The are executed naked bound and concious by having their
fore brains cut out.

Their unconcious robotised bodies can be picked up for sex and dancing
performances.

Their sin is usually their trivial belief in aliens or bug eyed monsters.

Well these bug eyed people, who are quite nice, come and chat nown again
(beam me up scottie) and those that see them realise how terrible is their
own mortality.

And some will testify of their time aboard the starships that call
ocasionally, and the astrobioly of the local stellar cluster we are in, and
the fact that our sun is a technetium flare star and will some day burst
into a planetary nebula. That was Hubbards message so carefuilly hidden in
his science fiction books and the poor man who wanted so much to do research
to pass on this alien knowlege to the human race was prevented by psychiatry
who are the agents of the catholic church and that the scientology movement
was set up to preserve this knowlege.

The exobiology of the solar system will be revealed and the physics of the
universe passed down. The science of knowlege and the other sciences such
as chemistry and the study of intelligence (brain science) the begining and
end of things is discussed and social systems.

That Jesus taught similar things is taught to and that attempts at contact
have gone on throughout human history.

The possiblity that the human race is the decendents of the escapees of a
breeding at culturing of early humans to be used as pets for the alien race
and that these pets were cleverer than their creators and threw them out.

The human race is not as stupid as the human race thinks it is.

The escapees built their own starships and populated planets all over the
place, but we are all freinds now.

As the ice age ended and the meltwaters destroyed the coastal civilisation
all over the planet.

And that we all live on in gods memory after we die because we are sentient
beings and god does not let us die.

This is the outer limits of the Galactic empire and we are all in it. And
there are laws.

And news that you will never see or hear on TV.

Chris.

Barb your post to the kids was great. I will re-post it here and in the
future.
Thanks for your ability to put it all in words that the youngers can
understand

the sea org kids.txt ]
Hey there.


Have you ever looked around you while walking around Los Angeles? Do
you
ever notice other kids your age, driving cars, shopping for clothes,
enjoying a meal on a restaurant patio?


Some of them are devoted to saving the world, and dedicate some of
their
time to saving the environment, being politically active, adopting
causes. But children, these kids aren't spending 99% of their time
running on the Hamster Wheel to Toadle Freedom!


Youth is a time of discovery. Parties with friends, a day at the beach,

your first car, dating, and learning what the real world is all about.


Have you ever been to the mountains or the desert? Or, is your time
spent within the Scientology reality bubble?


So much of what Scientology is teaching you is not true. If you're
reading this, it's possible that you, yourself have nagging doubts, but

you keep them to yourself, don't you? Because you know what will happen

if you dare to share them with a confidant...kr reports, Ethics, the
RPF.


Kids, out in the real world, we have the right to speak out about
things
we feel aren't "right." Real communication means sharing your thoughts
with others, and getting their input. I have met many
ex-Scientologists.
They are, like you, often intelligent people who misplaced their trust.

One thing I think is interesting is, they all harbored these doubts.
So,
if there are things about the Sea Org that bother you, be assured that
the people around you are also harboring doubts about Scientology, yet
none of you dare to mention them for fear of reprisal.


This isn't freedom! The gate to the Auschwitz concentration camp had a
message to the prisoners on it; 'Arbeit macht frei,' work makes you
free. The Nazis twisted these words around, being in a concentration
camp doing slave labor isn't freedom!


You are at a time in your life when you should be getting your first
car
and exploring the world around you. Like the song says, 'Nobody walks
in
L.A."


You should be playing at the beach. You should have your first job, and

be earning your own money for toys like Ipods, computers, video games.
You should have a dog. You should have real friends, who like you for
who you are, friendship not dependant upon membership in a group.


Saving the world is a noble endeavor. But Scientology is a mock-up; the

organization isn't really working in that direction. Deep down inside,
you probably know this, but you don't want to know. Your youth is being

stolen. Many members, when they finally leave, are in their 20s and
30s.
You can never get the time back when you are free to explore the world.

You'll be spit out as an adult into the real world, with no skills, no
connections, no friends. It's harder as you get older.


Right now, there's still time to go to school and learn to do something

you enjoy. Making money is only part of life, but it does grease the
wheels. If you start now, you can take your life back, and still get in

on some of the youthful fun you're entitled to enjoy.


I know, you wouldn't know what to do if you packed up your small
belongings and walked out, never to return. You don't know where to go,

or who to trust. Los Angeles is a big city.


However, there is a big network of people who would be happy to help
you! Magoo, myself, Arnie, Warrior, Dr. Dave Touretzky, we can all be
contacted thru email.


If you're fed up with your life in the Sea Org and Scientology, you can

find help. Some of you, like Magoo, have invested their whole lives
inside Scientology, and you know that, if you leave, you will lose all
your friends and, some of you, your families as well.


That's no different than a drug addict who decides to clean up. They
have to give up their old friends and their old life, too. But, people
do it all the time. It's not impossible.


And here's a funny thing. Ex-members are connecting up with some of
their old, dear friends on the other side of the veil! Sometimes you
just have to wait until they "wake up" too, and leave the organization.

If you stay in, Scientology will use you up. There is no retirement
home
for elderly Scientologists. There is no pension plan. When you quit
producing, that's it! You will find yourself on a street corner,
clutching a garbage bag of possessions, with nowhere to go, no Social
Security (such as it is) and few options. You know this is true! An old

person with few skills is doomed to taking crappy jobs for minimum
wage,
living in a crappy little apartment somewhere. But, think about it.
They've got their own place, which they don't have to share. Nobody is
going to drink the last milk in their fridge, or eat the last Ho-Ho out

of the cupboard. They can have a television if they wish. They can call

their friends whenever they want. They don't need permission to go out
of town.


It's better when you're young enough to create a decent life for
yourself. Think about it! If you want to cut class, you can, although a

responsible person would realize that they're going to school for a
reason. Having your own car means you can take a drive up Mt. Wilson to

see the snow whenever you want. You don't need anyone's permission to
do
anything. That's Total Freedom, kids! Being responsible enough to pilot

your own life, not relying on somebody else telling you what to do,
being free enough to hit the beach on a sunny day when you feel like
it.


Taking up hang gliding, riding motorcycles, exploring the boundaries of

your own ability. You should, at this point in your life, be driving
your own bus. Don't you want to?


Surf's up! The fish are biting! The sun is out (well, not today) and
you
should be outside, expanding your mind, learning new things, meeting
new
friends. You should be driving your own bus. Don't you want to?


One other thing. There are people on this newsgroup whose job it is to
confuse and instill mistrust. They pose as critics of Scientology, but
it's just a Scientology op. All the off-topic posts about eevil psychs,

same thing, a Scientology op to disrupt communication here.


Odd behavior for a group that claims to be committed to communicating,
isn't it?


Road Runner, Truth Seeker, Lily Fired, Space Traveler (aka Roadrunner)
Barbara Schwarz, are all Scientologists trying to break the flow of
communication about Scientology and its abuses. Some pose as critics.
However, they will never recommend critical websites, trying to
convince
you that the critical sites are somehow Scientology related OSA ops.


Truth Seeker is known for referring readers to a series of essays,
written by OSA, which purport to be critical.


http://www.xenu.net is one site he won't recommend.
http://www.lermanet.com is another.
The creator of lermanet.com is Arnie Lerma, ex-SO member, who almost
married one of Hubbard's daughters! You can trust him. He has helped
many people get their lives back.


Beware of the sock puppets who say everyone here is OSA. I'm not. On my

hate pages at religiousfreedomwatch.com/extremists, the first thing on
that page is, "Barbara Graham has never been a Scientologist, never had

relatives who were in, etc."


Look at those pages. If a person is listed as a "religious extremist,"
it means they are on Scientology's "enemies list."


Did you ever wonder why a "church" has an enemy's list?

It's just so hard to believe that "the real chris" aka BS was kicked

who she also claimed was the son of Eisenhower, got her a golden ticket

This is what your disturbed mind is telling you, Barbzzzzzzzzz Babbles
Graham. Kids are minors and they have to do what their parents want not
what you, the anti-religious extremist want.

> Who

I have no friends who broke up with their families. Tory Christman and
Ida Camburn did that with their families but they are like you
anti-religious extremist. You just mentioned that you want children (!)
to quit Scientology, in other words, you want kid to run away. If a kid
would do that and gets harmed, you have to carry the legal
responsibility as you made the kids (if any should be so dumb and
listen to you) leave their parents and run off!

SO kids can play all their want. I wish I would have had study tech and

Dear, those kids at AOLA don't live at home. If their folks are also SO,
they don't even have a home life. If they're minors, they shouldn't be
working for Scientology. If they're over 18, they're old enough to make
their own decisions. Your argument is not only spurious, it's stoopid.

It's hard to imagine why you would want this. Would you be more sane, or
more crazy now? For instance, I wonder what you would have changed about
this wonderful little spurt of incomprehensibility:

"If you want to be babbled, you have to address them for some loads of
babbles. I don't pass out any babbles or schwarzed, not for free and
not against payment."

That's a hella argument against calling you Babbles, innit!

Barbara S. If the 18 year olds and above do decide to leave it will be
their *parents* who will disconnect from them. I'm certain the kids
just want a real life and get along with everyone. However once they
criticize what their parents are doing or their parents become a non
existant PTS to them then the parents have no choice to disconnect.
Otherwise their *bridge* will be withdrawn from them.

I count myself extremely lucky that the sea org was invented when I
first came in. By the time it was I was a little more grown up and had
a character of my own. When I saw what went on (on occasion) in the
sea org I wondered how people could treat other people so inhumanely -
all in the name of "spiritual freedom". I excused it by saying bthat
when it "matured" they would be better. Here we are some 35 years
later and it has only got worse. Doesn't that indicate anything to
you??

Hey kids - my daughter went to Spain last weekend for a gig!! Tonight
she is doing a gig in fancy dress. To think she could very easily have
been a sea org kid!! Next week she will spend a week with her horses
on the "ranch". Just think you too could have what you *deserve* - all
it takes is getting a real life with real people. I'm serious - think
about it. Not for me but for you.

Congrats to your daughter (and to you).
Still, I think it's important to stress that the Sea Org, Billion Year
Contract and all, does *not* only recruit 18-year-olds, but, at least seems
to still be recruiting younger; down to 14 in some cases.

Naturally, these victims are almost universally the children of
Scientologists, but it's still happening.

As far as I know the 'theoretical' youngest age for the Sea Org is 10, and,
as far as I know, this is no longer common practice; not since the early 90s
at least. (Who knows what 'uncommon practice' is in Scientology?)

But, 18 is not now, nor has it ever been any kind of 'lower limit'.

Since Scientology is a 'secret society', they don't release any information
on the make up of the 'super sekrit' Sea Org, or, even more, the Commodore's
Messenger Organization.

http://www.lermanet.com/scientology/AstraWoodcraftDeclaration.htm

I, Astra Woodcraft declare as follows:

1. I am over the age of 18 years.

2. The statements herein are of my own personal knowledge and if called upon
as a witness, I can testify competently thereto.

3. I was born in 1978 in London, England. At that time, my mother was a
member of the Church of Scientology.

4. When I was 5 or 6 years old, my mother took me to the Scientology
organization in England called Saint Hill, which is located in East
Grinstead, Sussex. There I received approximately 12 hours of "auditing." The
auditing I received consisted of an "auditor" telling me to "look at that
wall, thank you, walk to that wall, thank you, touch that wall, thank you,
walk away from that wall, thank you," and similar such commands. I was made
to follow these commands on a repetitive basis.

5. When I was growing up in England to the age of seven, my mother would
apply the Scientology technology for sicknesses. When I hurt myself, she
would make me do a "contact assist" which meant that if I hit my elbow, I had
to touch it back to the place where I hit it over and over until it felt
better and I wasn't allowed to stop until it felt better. If I was ill, my
mother gave me a "touch assist" where I would lie down and close my eyes and
she would touch me with her finger and ask, "feel my finger." This was also
done until I felt better. I never felt better from theses processes but would
have to pretend I did because she wouldn't stop until I said I felt good.

6. Throughout my years in scientology, in all the auditing I received I never
felt good at the end. I made up wins to get it over with and generally felt
relief that it was over and dread that I would have to have another session.
I kept this secret always because it is scientology policy that if a person
does not get gain from auditing, it means they are a suppressive person.

7. In 1986, when I was seven years old, my mother's father died. He left her
some money and she used it to go to "Flag" which is the highest-level
Scientology delivery organization in the world, located in Clearwater,
Florida. While she was there, she was recruited for the Sea Organization
which is where people dedicate their entire life, and supposedly the next
billion years of their lifetimes, for the purpose of "clearing the planet"
which means getting everyone into Scientology and processed to the level of
"Clear." She called and told us she had joined after she had already started
working there. She told us we all needed to join, that we were moving to Flag
to live in a beautiful apartment, that we kids would go to a very good
private school and this would all be paid for by Scientology. She
additionally told us that her and my dad would get bonuses, time off every
other weekend and family time every evening.

8. When we arrived in 1986 to the Sea Organization in Clearwater, myself, my
brother, my sister and mother all lived in one motel room for several weeks.
Then we were moved into the main living quarters for the Sea Organization
members who had young children called the QI (Quality INN) and at this point
my dad joined us. Again, we lived in one small motel room. All five of us
lived in this room for approximately 3 months, when my brother moved out.
From this point on, the four remaining family members lived in this room for
about a year, wherein I was moved into a dorm with 4 or 5 other girls. In
this dorm, I slept on a couch, as there was no bed for me. I lived there for
another year, which was the remainder of our time in Clearwater.

9. We were never sent to a private school as promised. We instead went to the
local public school. I only recall my mother taking 3 days off out of the two
years we were there. She almost never spent the evening family time with us
(1 ½ hr), but stayed at work across town. After being in Clearwater for about
a year, my father was sent off to help on the renovations of the Sea Org
ship, The Freewinds. As I was moved into a dorm, my father was gone and my
mother didn't take time off to spend with us, I almost never saw my parents.

10. At one point of our time in Clearwater, we went back to England to take
care of our Visas. My father, my brother and I begged my mom not to take us
back to Florida, as we disliked it so much. I spent a lot of my time crying
about it. My mother refused and insisted we return.

11. For the two years that we lived in Clearwater, I went to school until 2
p.m. and then worked at the "Cadet Org" where we did such jobs as cleaning,
etc. On weekends, we would work as well.

12. In 1988, when I was 9 years old, my mother was transferred to middle
management of the Sea Organization, which is located in Los Angeles,
California. When we arrived, my father took a leave of absence so that he
could obtain our Visas and work to pay off debts. When we arrived in Los
Angeles, we were moved into a rundown studio apartment. After living there
for about a month, my father paid for and moved us into a proper apartment.

13. For approximately a year, from the age of 9-10, I was in the Cadet Org in
Los Angeles. This is where the children of Sea Org members go. During the
day, we went to school at a building they had rented where there were two
classrooms; one for older kids and one for younger kids. The teacher was not
a trained or certified teacher, but a trained Scientology "Supervisor." We
had no class lessons, but instead worked straight out of books and were made
to make clay "demonstrations" of what we were studying. If we acted up in
class at all, the supervisor simply threw us out of the room. This happened
to me on several occasions. One time, when I was 10, there was going to be an
inspection of our school. Many of the children were made to stay until about
3 a.m. cleaning up the premises.

14. Every day after school, we were made to work. We were sent to the
basement of one of the main offices for the Sea Organization and made to do
filing, as there were mounds of it piling up. When work ended at
approximately 9-10 p.m., we went to sleep on cots or directly on the floor
with pieces of blankets to keep us warm. When my mom got off work, she picked
me up. From what I recall, this was between 11pm-12am.

15. After being in the Cadet Org for about 1 year, I refused to go back.
Several things happened that caused me to feel this way. A boy who was there
got upset and climbed to the top of a billboard and threatened to jump and
kill himself: another boy threw a cockroach at me and kicked me. My mother
continuously tried to get me to stay but I refused and moved in with my dad.
I did continue to go to their school, but after a few months, I was told that
I either had to work in the Cadet Org or discontinue attending their school.
At this point, my father enrolled me in a private school. It was a
Scientology run school at my mother's insistence.

16. At the Scientology school I attended, which was called "Ability Plus,"
there were again two classrooms, one for younger kids and one for older kids.
There was no proper curriculum and no student had ever graduated from high
school, even though they claimed that you could. There were no class lessons;
we just worked from books and "checksheets". Our "teacher" spent several
hours reading us the science fiction book from L. Ron Hubbard called
"Battlefield Earth."

17. When I was 14 years old, I started doing a Scientology course at the
Celebrity Centre in Hollywood. Soon after, two Sea Org recruiters approached
me. They were recruiting for Bridge Publications, which is a Sea Org
organization. They told me that if I joined their group, I would get paid
minimum wage {which was several hundred a week, a lot of money for a 14 year-
old); that I would not have to wear a uniform like most Sea Org members; and
that I would go to school and finish my education. They also told me that
when I was older and wanted to have children I could. They spent several
hours convincing me including telling me that the only thing stopping me from
joining was my "reactive mind." The recruiter's names were Gavin Potter and
Malcolm Chisholm. I ended up agreeing to join. One of the reasons I agreed to
join was that my mother and brother had persisted in trying to recruit me and
I knew this would make them happy.

18. Soon thereafter, I started on the "Estates Project Force" (EPF), which is
like boot camp for the Sea Org. I started in May of 1993 and was on it for
approximately two weeks. When I first arrived, I was made to fill out a "life
history" form where I had to write down any sexual experiences I had had, all
my friends' names, and dozens of other extremely personal details. I also had
to sign a contract for a billion years. I never got a work permit. My
schedule on the EPF went something like this: 6:30 a.m. wake up and get
dressed; 7:00 a.m. breakfast; 7:30 a.m. muster (meeting); 7:30-8:00 a.m. run
(not walk) around and empty all the ashtrays and trashcans outside three
different buildings; 8:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. study Sea Org policies; 1:00 p.m.
muster and polish boots; 1:15-1:45 p.m. lunch; 1:45 p.m. muster, drilling and
marching; 2:15 p.m.-7:00 p.m. work, which included cleaning pots and pans,
cleaning out a clogged toilet, sweeping and mopping floors, etc.; 7:00-7:30
p.m. dinner; 7:30-10:00 p.m. more work; 10:00-10:30 p.m. shower; 10:30 p.m.
muster; 11:15 p.m. go to bed. This was a 7-day a week schedule.

19. After I finished the EPF in June of 1993, I started working at Bridge.
The day I started working there, they told me I was being transferred to
another organization for 2 months. I was told that I had no choice but to do
it, as I had no "staff status." I went to work in the International Justice
Chief's office doing secretarial work. I had to wear a military uniform.
After I worked there for approximately three months, I was told that I was
being transferred to another organization permanently and that I again had no
choice as I still had no staff status. The organization I was transferred to
was the International Training Organization. The staff there were on $15 a
week pay as they had no money and the food they were given was beans and
rice. I tried to refuse to go there but was told again and again I had no
choice. Once there, I felt I couldn't survive on the refried beans and rice
we had for every meal, so I took other food that wasn't supposed to be for us
because I was starving. This was considered stealing. This lasted
approximately 1 year.


20. For the first 6 months that I was in the International Training Org (ITO)
I was the Receptionist. I had trouble attending the 6 hours of school that
the minors went to on Saturdays because in order to attend I had to find
someone to replace me on my post. The school here was, again, substandard
with all the approximately 60 kids enrolled in one room with one non-
certified teacher. We had no lessons, no curriculum and no way to graduate:
you just stopped going when you turned 18 or got a GED.

21. Soon after I joined the Sea Org when I was still 14, I started having a
relationship with another Sea Org member named Jason Merrill. Jason was 21.
After two months we were heavily pushed by senior scientology managers to get
married, as in the Sea Org you are not allowed to do anything other than kiss
before you are married and if you do more, you may be sent to the
Rehabilitation Project Force, which means heavy labor for at least a year. In
December of 1993, when I had just turned 15, Jason and I went to Las Vegas
and got married.

22. Once married, the Sea Org did not have a room in which we could live
together so we were instructed to live in our separate dorms until they found
room that we could share and this would take several months. Instead of this,
we decided to stay down the road at Jason's parents house, and we did so for
about four months, knowing we would get into big trouble if we were found out
as it was against policy for sea org members to live outside of church
provided facilities.


23. After about 4 months, the Executive Director International and the
Commanding Officer of the CMO International, who were at the top of the
management of Scientology, came to inspect our organization. They asked me if
I knew anyone who was not living in the Sea Org berthing and I was compelled
to confess that my husband and I were not. We were immediately ordered back
into SO berthing and since there were still no rooms available, we stayed in
a storage closet that was 3/4 full of storage for a week. We slept on the
floor and there were no windows.

24. After a week in the closet, we were moved into a room of our own, but
after 1 week, that room was taken away and we were moved to another building.
We didn't find out we had been moved after other staff members had removed
our belongings. The room we were put into next had a missing windowpane that
was never replaced, very old carpet and peeling paint. We shared the bathroom
with 2 other couples and had no light bulb, no shower curtain and no hot
water the majority of the time. We lived in this room for 6 months.


25. After being the Receptionist at the ITO for 6 months, I was transferred
to the post of Master at Arms and then to Director of Inspections and
Reports. I was in charge of enforcing ethics and justice for the 100 staff in
ITO and the 50-100 students on training. My very first assignment was to
handle a 40 year-old man whose wife had been gone for 2 years on training. He
had been masturbating which is considered "out-ethics" and I was supposed to
make him stop. I was 15 years old.


26. On this post, I also had to handle people who wanted to leave the Sea
Organization. I had to convince them to stay and if they refused, I had to
make them do hard labor and order them to get "confessionals" which often
took up to 6 months or a year to complete before hey were allowed to leave.
One couple wanted to leave and they left without permission twice but came
back. Leaving without permission is called "blowing." I was ordered to put
them under heavy watch because there was no one else to watch them. Since
there was no one else to watch them, I had to do it. I was then ordered to
put a mattress outside their door and tie my arm to the knob while I slept so
they couldn't sneak out. The policy soon became that anyone who wanted to
leave must go under "watch" to stop them from "blowing."

27. I was ordered to do numerous watches while in the Sea Organization.
Anyone who admitted to having thoughts of suicide was immediately put under
watch. I was ordered to do these watches by executives at Religious
Technology Center, CMO and OSA. My husband at the time spent approximately
nine months watching an OT Sea Org member for reasons that were kept secret;
during this time she got pregnant and had a miscarriage. She was under watch
24 hours a day with my husband and another man watching her during the day
and another staff member watching her at night.

28. I was also in charge of investigating and finding the "Suppressive
Person" if a department wasn't producing enough. I had to make people write
up their "overts & withholds" (things they had done that were bad), receive
confessionals, do amends, etc. I had to write a "Suppressive Person" declare
on a lady who had already left with permission but then was ordered to
receive more confessionals and was having trouble getting a ride to come over
and receive them. She was then made to disconnect from family and friends who
were in the Sea Org and her husband was ordered to split up from her, but he
refused.

29. During my time in the Sea Organization I started going to the 6 hour a
week school less and less. I couldn't get anyone to cover my job and got in
trouble for leaving it. Also, the school got reduced even further to all of
us sitting all day in a room doing Spelling and Math bees. By the time I was
16, I was attending sporadically and at 17 I wasn't attending at all. I
didn't think it made any difference since I didn't learn a thing while I was
there. I didn't learn math, history, science, social studies or English. I
just did spelling bees, read a book, etc. After I turned 18, some of the kids
got to go take their GED, but because I was over 18 I didn't get to do it
since there was "no reason" as I no longer legally had to attend school. It
was well known that the legal minimum for school attendance for a minor is 20
hours a week. We were told this, but the law was blatantly ignored.

30. From the age of 14, I had an official schedule starting at 8:00 a.m. and
ending at 10:00 p.m., but regularly worked later, sometimes until 2 or 3 a.m.
We got 30 minutes for lunch and 45 minutes for dinner and no other breaks. We
regularly were ordered to work during part of our meal times. We sometimes
got into trouble if we went to the canteen when it wasn't our mealtime. The
schedule was 7 days a week, but we got Sunday morning to do our laundry and
clean our rooms. On Saturday's we did labor work, consisting of renovations,
etc. There was a period of 3 weeks or so in 1995 when I was still a minor
where there was a huge evolution to print new policies to revise all the
Scientology technology. (This is known as the "Golden Age of Tech within the
church.) During this time, all staff including minors were ordered to work
around the clock literally to produce these new polices and put them into
binders. My job was to go and wake up any staff who went to sleep and make
them get back to work. I would fall asleep while driving. I got approximately
2 hours of sleep a night during this time, but many times got no sleep for 2
or more days. I was ordered to drive around even though I was falling asleep
and incoherent due to no sleep. One time I parked my car and accidentally
fell asleep and woke up 3 hours later because a meter attendant was knocking
on my window. Once this "evolution" was complete, the staff was rewarded with
a trip to the movies.


31. In approximately 1996, when I was 16 or 17, there was a re organization
done and I became in charge of the ethics and security departments for the
entirety of middle management known as the Flag Liaison Office. One day, the
Chief of Security International, Jeff Porter, came and gave me an order to
get some staff to do security at an event. I didn't do it because I didn't
consider it my job. He then came back and screamed at me, pushed me up
against a wall and screamed at me more while holding me against the wall and
spitting in my face. I complained about this but nothing was done to handle
it.


32. When I was 18, I was transferred to another job in the Data department.
This was because someone said I was not qualified for the job I had been
doing because I had tried marijuana when I was 13 years old. I worked in the
Data department for one year. My senior, Wayne Furness, harassed me on a
regular basis. When I first started working under him, he started calling me
a lesbian and telling me and another girl that we were lesbians. I got very
upset and finally wrote a report to his senior. She told him to stop and
nothing more. He stopped calling me a lesbian, but because I had reported
him, he continued to call me other names such as "Two-ton Tesse" (I was not
in the slightest overweight being 5'6", 130 lbs), telling me I had "soft-
skin", etc. When he would say these things I got upset and then he would say
that I had withholds and to write them up or he would tell me to go to
ethics. He got his other juniors to side with him and tell me that I had
"soft-skin", etc. I reported this behavior but nothing was done because our
department, which Wayne was in charge of, produced a lot and the policy from
L. Ron Hubbard is that if someone's statistics are "up" then they can't get
in trouble no matter what they do. Someone once "looked into" the situation,
but nothing was done.

33. When I worked in the Data department, one of my jobs was to gather the
statistics from around the world on a weekly basis and compile them all and
graph them on the computer. There were approximately 300 organizations and I
had to get each one to report in between 50-200 statistics each week. Every
Thursday we had to get this done and had to stay at work until 3am. We also
only got 5-10 minutes to eat lunch and dinner if at all. Every week there
were, of course, a few organizations that were late reporting or had missing
reports and every week staff from an organization called CMO International
would write to me on a system similar to instant messaging getting
progressively angrier as the day went on and there were missing reports. They
would call us if they got really mad. I had to sit and answer their questions
about where the reports were from 8am until about 9pm at night. I was told
things like "You are fucking counter-intention," and "You are stopping these
reports coming in," and other such expressions if any reports were late. They
would also call me and my senior and scream and swear at us. Screaming and
swearing is the regular way that seniors get juniors to do things in the Sea
Organization. I was screamed and sworn at on a regular basis while I was in
the Sea Organization.

34. There were a series of policies implemented by management while I worked
in the Sea Org. When I had been there for a few months, our Commanding
Officer made a new rule that no one could leave the building without her
permission. Then I was told that I was not allowed to see my dad and have
dinner with him without a specific reason and special permission. After about
a year they told us that we were not allowed to eat anywhere but in the
building nor were we to eat any food other than that provided. We were not
allowed to go next door for pizza or anything. After about 3 years, we were
told that we could not use our Sunday morning laundry time for anything else
either, i.e., seeing our family, parents seeing their kids, or anything.

35. At around this time, another new policy was issued stating that no one
could make or receive any personal calls without someone from the ethics and
security department being with them. Personal calls were not transferred to
us and a list was made each day of all incoming personal calls. This list was
sent to the executives and the Religious Technology Center so that they could
monitor who was being "influenced."


36. My calls from my father were rarely routed to me and instead I would
receive a note 2 or 3 days later telling me he had called. I had to go and
hide in a phone booth to call him. On Christmas Day we were not allowed to go
with our family or do anything other than the planned trip unless we got
special permission, which was sometimes denied.

37. About 9 months before I left I was told that I could never see my father
again unless I was working to get him back into the Sea Organization.

38. We were also made to fill out interrogatories listing out any gifts we
received from family members, who we spoke to and anyone we knew who had left
the Sea Organization. Anyone we were talking to, family or friends, who had
either left Scientology, gave us gifts or money or tried to get us to take
time off, were called 'External Influences" and we were ordered to either
handle them or disconnect from them entirely.

39. The staff was also made to practice how they would handle family members
who inquired about how they were doing, etc. I was instructed to lie to my
father and tell him I was attending school and not working long hours.

40. If a staff member got into trouble they would be assigned "lower
conditions." This meant doing formulas and amends, etc. A new policy came out
after I had been there for a year stating that staff who were in lower
conditions had to sit in the fire escape stairwell or in the trash room to
eat their meals. They also had to do up to 40 hours of amends on their own
time, which was during their meal times or after 10:30 at night. I myself had
to eat in the stairwell and do hours of amends on my sleep or mealtime. We
also were not allowed to watch TV and anyone who had a TV and VCR had it
confiscated and only given to them if they had a day off and wanted to watch
a movie.

41. For the almost 5 years that I was in the Sea Organization, I never got
one day off with my husband other than 2 days when we got married and
Christmas Day. I myself only got approximately 10-15 days off in the 5 years
that I worked there.

42. Approximately 1½ years before I left, a new rule came out stating that if
you got pregnant, you had to either get an abortion, which was heavily
pushed, or leave. The rule had previously been that if you got pregnant, you
had to get an abortion or be sent to a small and failing lower organization
where you had to fend for yourself and your baby. I had to handle any staff
that disagreed with this new rule. I myself disagreed with it because I
wanted children and was told I would be able to have them when I was first
recruited. However, I never said anything for fear of getting into trouble. I
got to the point of being suicidal because I was so unhappy, but I never said
anything because I would have gotten into big trouble and been looked down
upon.

43. In September of 1997, my grandma in England died. I convinced my seniors
that I had to go to her funeral in England. They did not want me to go, but
finally relented and let me take an 8-day leave. When I returned I realized
that I could not take being split apart from my family any longer. I decided
to get pregnant because if I tried to just leave, I would be made to do heavy
labor and confessionals for 6 months to a year and be called a "degraded
being" by the other staff. I got pregnant in January of 1998 and on February
23rd 1998 I left without permission, got on a plane and went to stay with my
aunt and uncle in England. No one knew up until then that I was pregnant and
I was really sick and had to get away. My seniors in Scientology threatened
me that if I didn't come back and receive a confessional I would be declared
a Suppressive Person and my family would never speak to me again. My mother
who is still in the Sea Org called me on a continuous basis telling me to get
an abortion and return.

44. I returned on April 1st, 1998. Jeff Porter told me that if I left again,
I would be declared immediately. I told the security staff there that I would
stay with my father and come in every day for my confessional, explaining
that I needed proper nutrition and they couldn't provide it. They told me
that I had to stay in their berthing or I would be put under a non
enturbulation order, which means that if I caused further trouble, that is if
I still refused to stay in their berthing, I would be declared suppressive. I
then agreed that I would stay there for four days, which is how long my
confessional was supposed to take. The Security Chief wrote me a letters
stating that if I was not done with my confessional within four days, I could
stay with my father until I finished.

45. Four days later I was not done, but I was told that they had only written
the letter to get me to stay in the berthing and that it was not valid.
Therefore, I had to continue to stay in Sea Org berthing and eat micro waved
meals even though I was suffering from morning sickness. I had to sleep on
the floor in a small room while waiting for my confessionals. I was there for
1 month.

46. It took a lot less time for me to leave because they didn't want any of
the other staff to know I was pregnant, so they were trying to get me out
quick. A staff member from the Religious Technology Center (The Sea Org's
highest organization) came up to me one day while I was in the process of
routing out and asked me what I was doing. I told him that I was pregnant and
leaving and he said to me "Oh, too late for an abortion?" I personally knew
of three other girls who got pregnant and were convinced to get abortions.
One was my sister-in-law who was 16 weeks pregnant when she was convinced to
abort her child although she was strongly against it. My mother told my
sister and I that it was good that she got an abortion.

47. Another thing I had to do before being allowed to leave was sign an
affidavit stating that I thought Scientology and the Sea Org were great and
that I was leaving because I couldn't confront bad things I had done. I was
told I could not leave without signing this document and that if I did leave
before signing, I would be declared a suppressive person. I signed it knowing
that it was not legal as it was signed under duress. It was the standard
policy to make anyone who left the Sea Org sign such an affidavit and if you
didn't agree to what they wrote in it, you were sent in for more
confessionals and ethics handlings until you did.

48. For the first few months after I left, I was called to come back in
several times to answer questions for investigations. I was threatened if I
wouldn't come in.

49. When I left, I was given a bill totaling $89,000 for auditing and courses
that I had done while I was in the Sea Org. I have been called approximately
10 times by various staff members including Bob Diskin and Renee Norton
pressuring me to send them money to pay this bill. I have been sent about 20
letters on this subject.

50. When I was about 8 months pregnant, my ex-husband wrote me a letter and
told me that he had decided that he did not want to have anything to do with
our daughter when she was born. He stated that it was because he had to
dedicate all his time to the Sea Organization. When my daughter was 6 months
old, I wrote to him and told him that I needed him to figure out a way to pay
child support, as I was not able to support our daughter. He didn't reply for
6 months, but told his parents to stop seeing our daughter. They had been
seeing her every other weekend up until that point and then I stopped hearing
from them. They, too, are Scientologists. I ended up giving up trying to get
child support from my ex-husband.

I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of
America and the state of Florida that the foregoing is true and correct.


Executed in Clearwater, Florida this 24th day of January 2001.

What is the age that kids can leave their parents control? The reason
I address the 18 year olds and above is that I expect that it would be
only possible for this group to leave.

Certainly it's the younger ones I fear for most, but I don't expect we
can do anything for them at this stage. If govts outlawed home
education and private schools they would have a chance but that isn't
likely.

How many under-18 Sea Ogres do you think 'live with their parents' ?

Ans: Nobody knows, but, I'd guess practically none.

That does raise the question: How many Sea Org married couples are living
together?

Ans: Probably more than SO parents/families living together, but still,
probably a *very* low number.

The reason I bring this up is not because I disagree with you, but to avoid
any misconception 'wogs' might have that the Sea Organization only recruits
above age 18.

That's not the case.

This thread was started with the intention of addressing the young SO slaves
who may be reading ARS or similar on their 'day off', and, I think it's a
give that, even though their parents may have *allowed* them to join, or even
*pressured* or *forced* them to join, that does not mean that they are bound
to the inherently abusive and illegal contract.

Even in the unlikely event that they *did* live with their parents, there
isn't a court in the US (or, probably the world) that would force them to
remain, regardless of what their parents' wishes were, or whether they 'lived
with them' or not.

The Sea Org is *inherently* abusive.

I accept everything you say - it is the truth. How would the younger
ones survive though if they were to leave? Granparents, other
relatives?

At least the older ones can get jobs and accomodation - probably with
some help "adjusting" to real life.

What a problem! How does a society go about really looking after its
most vulnerable?

If the parents are on "mission" or some such garbage then who does look
after these kids? In most of the places I've lived in kid minders have
to be licensed. I doubt this would happen in the sea org.

Do kids in the US have to have precise learning requirements for home
schooling? Who checks this out? What about social workers who's job
it is to monitor kids "at risk"? Do they enter sea org premises to do
their job?

I always remember my daughter at seven years old cleaning up inside a
male horses penis sheath - as you do!!

Horse shit is the *least* of it!!!

Still it is a buzz at flat stick on a thoroughbred. Far better than a
a bike. Actually training kids to ride is FAR better than TR's. The
level of confront & intention projected required to control a horse is
far higher than taught in TR's.

I would just love to see some of these OT's start to ride - and yes
that brown stuff oozing out of their pants would be what you think it
is!

Any kid that can ride well could out TR any scientology kid. Fact.

'Children' in the Sea Org are'nt 'children' as far as the 'Church' is
concerned. They're 'little thetans'. They have their *own* posts. Possibly
some very high ranking Scientology Sea Org members have children living with
them, but, if so, I've never heard of it.

Sea Org parents have their 'post'. Sea Org children have their 'post'.
And, ne'er the twain shall meet...

There is no longer a 'Cadet Org' as far as I know, so the children of current
Sea Org parents are farmed out to relatives or 'friends' or anyone handy as
long as they'll take them. Luckilly, the 'Church' has pretty much eliminated
childbirth in the SO through abortion and heavy ethics, so the problem isn't
quite as pressing.

The younger ones could get help too; but, the 'wog' social system isn't
particularly adequate either, and I'm afraid there's just no simple answer.

Still, at *any* age, leaving the Sea Org, even if it meant foster homes,
would be an improvement. Bear in mind that these Sea Org minors are almost
certainly *not* living with, or under the protection of their parents.

Inadequately.

It's not about whether they're on a mission. I've never heard of Sea Org
kids being 'posted' with their parents; and, Sea Org kids are almost
certainly *not* the children of current Sea Org parents, but, far more
likely, the children of Scientology Pubics, who have offered them up to the
moloch in order to curry favor or expedite their *own* movement 'up The
Bridge'.

There's a lot of pressure on Public (not Sea Org) parents to sign their kids
up; although, few do.

'Home Schooling' has rules and regulations, but, the Sea Org kids don't
*live* at home. There *are* no Sea Org homes.

There are social workers/agencies who are supposed to be monitoring these
things, but, *they don't*.

The 'Church' has been fairly successful so far in *not* coming under
scrutiny.

A picture of a happy 'Sea Org Family' sitting down to a Norman Rockwell
evening after a busy day of 'Clearing the Planet' would be as ridiculous as a
portrait of Xenu. It doesn't exist.

Could this girl {your daughter} have been following an example already
set for her by someone else?

I don't know what you are saying! Certainly I have never had my hand
up any horses penis parts - or any other part either!!

I started to ride after my daughter started. I took it up when my
daughter wanted to. I am not a natural - sorry to say and this
includes "cleaning bits and pieces".

Mind you my female business partner is very horsey. I often think she
enjoyed this part of horsewomanship. She is very willing to lend a
hand when the stallion services the mare!

It's just Larry. Nobody knows whether he's the most outrageous OSA Op to
date or just a bizarrely pitiful example of Scientology Training.

I don't even know myself. On the one hand, he's got the OSA fragrance; but,
on the other, he's so bizarre that my woggy little mind has problems
comprehending what the hell they'd be thinking.

Still; OSA is nothing if not willing to swim in literally pathological shit,
so, I tend to see him as 'agent'.

Decide yourself, but, don't waste too much time.
