Scientology’s day care from hell: The scandal the church managed to keep hidden — until now

DayCare1b
Written by Tony Ortega | Illustrations by Chad Essley

 
Ellen was driving back from an outing in San Diego with her daughter when she got the call. [“Ellen” is not her real name, but this account is exactly how she told it to us.]

It was Julian, an ethics officer at Scientology’s “org” in Los Angeles. Julian was one of the young “masters at arms” who enforce Scientology’s myriad rules and regulations. If you heard from him, it usually meant you were in some kind of trouble, Ellen knew.

“I need to see you right away,” he told her.

“No, tell me what it is now,” Ellen answered. If she was in trouble, she wanted to know right away.

“I can’t really get into it. You’re going to be getting a call from a police detective.”

Ellen frowned. Why would a Scientology ethics officer be telling her that she’d be getting a call from the police?

“Why is a detective going to call?” she asked.

“You’re probably also going to be getting a call from –,” Julian said, and then he named a woman we’re going to refer to as DayCare Mom.

“Something happened there,” Julian continued.

Ellen could do the math. She looked at her daughter, who was just seven, and she seemed all right. Ellen tried not to show how much she wanted to scream.

It had been two years since Ellen stopped sending her daughter to DayCareMom’s house, where she operated a business that catered to other Scientology families. Ellen had a bad feeling about the place then. And now her worst fears were coming true.

After she got home, she dropped off her daughter and drove to the org. She went to Julian’s office and asked him what was going on.

Julian asked her to wait as he brought in DayCare Mom. He also brought in a Scientology chaplain, and a man in a suit, who was introduced as an attorney for the the church. DayCare Mom then began speaking.

“My son was molesting the girls at the day care, for over a year. Your daughter was one of them. We’re just coming clean about it.”

Ellen sat stunned as DayCare Mom then went into a Scientology practice of giving “time, place, form, and event,” and methodically described what her son had done to each of the girls, and how many times.

“That was hard to hear,” Ellen says.

Julian then explained that DayCare Mom had revealed the crime during a sec check.

A “sec check” or “security check” is a brutal interrogation that all Scientologists must go through from time to time. The subject of a sec check is asked to hold the sensors of an E-meter — a crude electronic device which simply measures tiny fluctuations in skin galvanism, but to Scientologists the machine is a sophisticated tool which can detect if they’re lying. With their utter confidence in the E-meter’s ability to tell when they’re holding back information, Scientologists spill their guts under the tough questioning of ethics officers.

In this case, DayCare Mom had spent tens of thousands of dollars to go through something called “OT Eligibility” in preparation for starting the vaunted “Operating Thetan” Scientology levels. As Claire Headley explained to us during our survey of Scientology’s courses, Up the Bridge, a member isn’t allowed to start the OT levels (which themselves cost many thousands of dollars each) until passing “OT Preps” and “OT Eligibility,” which includes a sec check.

Scientologists can’t begin these high-level courses, Claire explained, without first going through an intense interrogation to find out if they have “evil intentions.”

During her sec check, convinced she couldn’t defeat the all-knowing E-meter, DayCare Mom had revealed the information she’d been holding back: That her teenage son was a predator, and for more than a year he had molested the girls other parents dropped off at her house.

Julian told Ellen that as soon as he heard about that confession, he told DayCare Mom that it was her responsibility to call the police. “I told her, you’re either going to report the crime or I will,” Julian claimed. But even though the crime had been reported, Ellen was told that the mothers were being asked to keep the matter within the church.

Ellen was told that if DayCare Son were charged (he was then 17 and still a juvenile), he’d be subject to psychiatric treatment and medication.

“We’re begging you not to press charges because he’ll be subject to psych evals. We want to avoid that,” the attorney said to her.

Scientologists are taught to regard psychiatry and its medications with a white-hot hate. The thought of DayCare Mom’s son on psych drugs in custody was worse, to these Scientologists, than doing nothing about a young man who had molested their daughters.

“Julian was very clever in the way he did this. He did make sure it was reported to police, but then he turned it over to the chaplain, like it was a church situation. And it was clear that he was the one making sure none of us filed charges or filed lawsuits,” she says.

“I told them there was no way in hell I was going to allow that.”

After that meeting, Ellen did hear from the police detective, who called her last out of all the parents involved. Ellen’s daughter had been at the day care the least, and hadn’t been victimized as much as some of the others.

The problem, the detective told her, was that none of the other parents wanted to press charges.

Ellen called each of them, and they told her it was against Scientology rules to prosecute a fellow Scientologist — not without permission from the “International Justice Chief,” a man named Mike Ellis who members almost never saw or heard from.

“The mothers were concerned that if they pressed charges, they would lose their own OT levels,” Ellen says.

What she means is that when the mothers, like DayCare Mom, also reached their “OT Eligibility” in order to go into the high-level courses, they would also be interrogated, and if they had sued or prosecuted a fellow Scientologist, they’d lose the right to spend tens of thousands of dollars per level to reach the top of Scientology’s spiritual attainment.

Ellen was infuriated. She said they didn’t need anyone’s permission to press charges. But the other mothers didn’t budge.

Each of them, and Ellen, had been instructed by Julian how to talk to the police detective to convince him that DayCare Son should not be prosecuted.

But Ellen didn’t go along with it. She not only helped the detective with his investigation, she personally rounded up the four other mothers and took them to meet with a prosecutor at the district attorney’s office.

“I actually got the other mothers to the DA’s office, and got the kids interviewed by the police detective, using the doll. But the mothers decided to let the church handle it,” she says.

With the limited cooperation they received, the DA’s office charged the young man with a crime that only resulted in a sentence of probation.

“I at least wanted him on the sex offender’s list, but we didn’t even get that,” Ellen says.

Ellen was so disgusted with how the affair had been handled, she decided to leave Scientology, after having grown up in a rather prominent church family. Once she did, her parents, who remained in the church, cut off all contact with her as they followed the Scientology policy of “disconnection.”

Ellen shared with us a lengthy document she wrote to her father, explaining her reasons for leaving Scientology. In the document, she tells her father that not only had DayCare Son escaped the punishment he really deserved, but that Scientology’s way of handling the manner had involved the young man spending time in the homes of his victims, doing a “liability formula.”

When Scientologists are considered to have committed a transgression of some kind, they can be assigned a “lower condition” to reflect their lack of status. “Liability” is one of the least severe lower conditions, and making up for it requires an involved program of contrition, including asking permission of others to rejoin the non-liable population. DayCare Son had reportedly spent time in the homes of his victims so he could accomplish this program, Ellen told her father.

When she found out about it, Ellen says she was shocked. “I thought sure the church was going to declare them all,” Ellen says, referring to Scientology’s practice of excommunicating members by “declaring” them “suppressive persons.”

“But the mom is still in the church, and so is the kid. They let them do the conditions to make up for the crime, and they’ve even let him babysit. That’s when I never went back,” Ellen says with disgust.

But there’s more to the story.

One of Ellen’s friends had also recently left the church. And at one point, Ellen was asked by her friend why she left the organization.

The friend was livid after learning about the incident, saying that publicizing it could cause Scientology major pain and might even “bring the church down.” The friend knew a major Scientology celebrity who had been having some doubts, and who became irate upon learning what had happened at the day care. The two of them got busy gathering information about the case. Each of them told Ellen that if she went public, they would pay for her to have an attorney and any other expenses she incurred.

The friend, meanwhile, has pressed reporters, trying to get them to do this story.

But the friend was told repeatedly that the detective wasn’t talking about the case when he was called by reporters, and there were no court documents because the perpetrator had been a juvenile at the time.

While Ellen was willing to talk, she didn’t want to be named, and the other parents weren’t interested in talking.

Scientology wanted it kept quiet and wanted it kept in-house, and they were successful.

Several years later, the friend and the Scientology celebrity are still fuming that the church was able to keep a lid on the incident, and that DayCare Mom and her son are still active members.

DayCare Son is now in his mid 20s. When we called him last week, he told us he didn’t know what we were talking about when we told him we were going to write a story about the day care incident. We explained that we had no interest in naming him, and were more concerned with how the Church of Scientology had handled the matter. But he continued to say he didn’t understand what we were referring to. We thanked him and ended the call.

Ellen, meanwhile, says that despite the backing she received from the Scientology celebrity, she felt unsure about making the story well known. “It’s a delicate thing,” she told us. “My daughter is a teenager now, and she doesn’t really remember it.”

She received another round of encouragement from her friend to do this story, and then reluctantly agreed to talk about it.

“Unfortunately, this story is all too typical. It is not, by far, the only instance of sexual abuse of children in Scientology that has not previously seen the light of day,” says former Scientology spokesman, Mike Rinder, who knows Ellen well and is familiar with the underlying facts in the case. “While Julian played on the fear of psychiatry, this isn’t always a factor in these cases. But there are two fears that are always overriding concerns: 1. The terror of negative press and bad PR that such circumstances would generate and 2. The hatred and fear instilled into all Scientologists of ‘wog justice.’

“The only reason these people are not declared is the fear the church has that it might somehow prompt the perpetrators to come clean and spill the beans about how it was covered up by the church. After all, if there is any application of Scientology ‘SP and disconnection tech’ that would ever be applicable, it is for a child sex abuser. Scientology routinely offers up the example of an abusive spouse to justify application of SP/disconnection tech. The implied message is that even a moron would understand that you should disconnect from such a person and they should be made known to warn others. Yet, here we are, another example where the SP Declare and Disconnection policy should be used and it is ignored. Meanwhile, Scientology forced Ellen’s parents to disconnect from her because the crime of no longer choosing to call yourself a Scientologist is so much worse than molesting children.”

Links of note

An interesting story hit the WPTV Channel 5 website at midnight last night. It’s about a Boynton Beach alternative medicine doctor, Brian Sheen, who has filed a civil rights complaint with the state of Florida, alleging that his civil rights have been denied by the Church of Scientology.

Sheen says that his daughter, a Scientologist, has “disconnected” from him because he’s been declared a suppressive person by the church. In a website he put up about the matter, he indicated that he himself left Scientology some 35 years ago, and had tried to do so in a manner that left him in good standing with the church. But recently he received a letter from the church telling him his only way of contacting his daughter was through the International Justice Chief, Mike Ellis.

We’ve emailed Sheen to see if we can get more information on this story, which at this point is short on details. We’d like to see the letter he received, as well as his complaint. According to the story at WPTV, Sheen made his civil rights complaint to the state, which one of our legal experts points out means it may have been submitted to an office run by Attorney General Pam Bondi, which is a little ironic.

    OT: just saw a commercial for Leah Remini’s new season of “It’s all Relative”, her show on TLC … the commercial had the actual title “Leah Remini left the Church of Scientology” and then it shows her and her family in a therapy session talking about the experience of leaving the church. Very out and open. That’s good stuff.

    • ReallyMGM

      I loved her show last season. The episode when her mom gets the “tramp stamp” is so funny. Her mom is a gem!
      I remember her VH1 or MTV Getting Married and Having a Baby shows, but didn’t connect her to Scientology at the time. I just remembered how funny she was and didn’t seem to take crap off of anyone. Not surprised she left the cult. I was sad to hear now that they are disconnected from some family members. Sigh.

        nope. I think there was a 5000 day, Monique’s trial.

        • SP Wogsy

          Moniques trial Jan 2014 was the first day I discovered the Bunker. I will never forget. I was watching the live updates taking place, and I was thinking “Omg, these people are all talking to eachother. Weird.”

          • SP Wogsy

            WoW. I just had internet De ‘Ja vu.

          • beauty for ashes

            that is crazy! I had been here a while when I did a live blog, but it was not Monique’s trial. That would have been like watching 100 ping pong matches at the same time.

            • SP Wogsy

              It was crazy. I had never seen anything like that before. I was glued to the screen like I had just discovered the internet. I had seen the blog before but never clicked on the link. I was not a fan of blogs, so it was easy to overlook.

            • ReallyMGM

              I had read since the VV days, but got more interested after the Going Clear book, since I am a fan of L. Wright’s writing. Never really read the comments until the doc came out. Then I jumped on in. I remember reading something by LRH as a teenager, thinking it was nuts, and never finished it. (It’s probably still in my closet at my moms house!) I didn’t put the connection with the Sherriff Joe stories to Tony until recently. I kept up with that saga for several years…still goes on.

    Interviewer must be under a time constraint. It takes balls for a victim to come forward and she cuts him off, until he sort of gives up. Sorry have to add this. When you are little and this happens to you for some reason you are looked at even bu other WOGS,”as somehow bring this on yourself.” Like adult female rape victims who are blamed for wearing certain clothing. It has gotten better but not by much. Also, once again the people with money walk compared to their poor counterparts,”not even heard by courts.” Sick, it really is.

      I have heard rumors about the Disney Channel studios for several years. And what about the now aging rockers who are now getting hit with lawsuits from the women who were in their teens during the 60-70s? Roy Harper (UK folkie) is in middle of a law suit and he is about 70 yo now.

            • Todd Tomorrow

              Well if you ever need some donation of some baby batter mine have,”great motility.” Donated at clinic in Seattle four times. But I think couples wanted a dude with a higher IQ. Still I always wonder if any of the four took.

            • SP Wogsy

              Serious?? You really donated? Are you like okay with it? I could never imagine some part of me roaming the earth without me. Thanks for the offer, I’m cool. lol Call me senile, I wouldn’t want to bring a baby in this world unless my other half ABSOLUTELY wanted one. And I mean ABSOLUTELY.

            • Todd Tomorrow

              You got a couple of hundred bucks per,”donation” So three times per; 600$ total. As I said I only did it four times. Pretty good money for not a lot of work plus you got complete physical exams prior to each set of donations. I’d been around Medical work so it didn’t bother me. One time I was at, Six Flags and my sister said,” My god look how much that little boy looks like you.” I looked at the parents and they had dark hair and their child was blonde like me. 1800 easy bucks and I saved it to visit Spain and Morocco for spring break. Sad, but I had a buddy who was broke and donated plasma all the time just to eat in college. Glad I had the life drawing model gig. Hopefully, I made a couple happy:)

            • SP Wogsy

              WoW. Interesting story, Todd. You learn something everyday. Shall I ever be desperate in the future, I will hit you up on an old line. LOLOL. I’m J/K. Anyways, I gotta roll. Nice catching up with you. XoXo.

  • Unfortunately I knew about this story already. Thank you for telling it here Tony. Julian is one of the most evil, vile, sub humans that I have ever had the displeasure of knowing. He is the number one henchman for Scientology. He tried to break up my family, he got hundreds of people to disconnect from me, he has shown my SP declare to countless people but never to me. He is disgusting. He isn’t the only one to blame though. He is just the sword being wielded by the AOLA/PAC arm of Scientology. There is a Julian at EVERY org, in EVERY field. Julian is the end product of Scientology. He is what you become when you are 100% on source.

    • ReallyMGM

      Keep speaking out Nora. There is a growing army standing by you and other survivor’s sides. Scientology is synonymous with crime syndicate now, and there is no going back. This will be the thing that takes the bastards down. Hold on!

    • Mockingbird

      I am so sorry you have been subjected to Scientology’s totalitarian “ethics” policies . It is heartbreaking to hear of families broken up and lives ruined. I was in for twenty five years and encouraged to disconnect from my wife and kids thousands of times . They are great people and didn’t deserve that at all. I naively believed disconnection was a rare last resort . I now believe over 95% of Scientologists will be disconnected from one or more people if they spend decades in the cult . The cult pretends to SP declare only murderers, rapists and psychos but in truth declares perfectly sane and compassionate people routinely. Thousands of people get declared for minor infractions .

      Your voice being added to those speaking out helps to make the whole truth shine through. You are doing a very needed thing in speaking out . I hope more people join you .

    • dchoiceisalwaysrs

      Aren’t you glad this is all being given to you by extorted ‘donations tax exempt donations’. What is next? IRS Tax grants for ISIS for all their public benefit movies about beheading? YUK

      I think the IRS commissioner needs to apologize.

    • indie8million

      Hi Nora. I know Julian too. I can’t tell you how many times I said hello to that guy and he never even uttered one ack or nodded his head or made any attempt to acknowledge my presence. I tried and tried to talk with him about a very serious situation with someone and he wouldn’t respond to me in any way, shape or form. What this person did ended up helping someone die. Julian wanted nothing to do with it.

      I’m not sure if Julian’s “Julian” has anything whatsoever to do with “100% Source” or God or whatever, whatever. Julian has always been like that, for as long as I’ve known him. I honestly think he is mentally/physically damaged in some way. Head injury or something. For those of you who don’t know him, personality-wise, he is, no kidding, a walking black hole.

      My take on it is that, in the real world he wouldn’t make it very well because he’s not social, probably somewhere around controlling bodies on the tone scale. Scientology takes his silence and solidity as certainty and they have given him a powerful post with which to practice his sadism.

      I’m not sure if there is a Julian at every org. I’ve been to almost every org in the US and Julian is his own brand of solid. But there are certainly a lot of Julian wannabes.

      Julian so resonates with COB that, when COB visited the OC org for the grand opening, Julian was DM’s “Lurch”, guarding the photo op area where The LIttle Leader was taking pics with the whales.

      No offense to Lurch.

  • indie8million

    Well I am surprised as sh*t that Julian ACTUALLY had the police called. My my, Scientology has come a long way (I say facetiously).

    They must have gotten so much crap about concealing these types of things that Julian got his hatting on how to report it (so it isn’t withheld from the authorities) so that Scientology’s tit wouldn’t get in a wringer.

    Well Julian, what about the case of the *ssh*le who molested his own 4 year old and his wife’s 5 year old girl for months and NO ONE would report it? Oh and then the MOM, who was all over the lines, trying to get the husband “handled” in ethics, was the one attacked by the ‘cherch’ for making so much ‘noise’ about it? Terrible molestation, just short of penetration.

    The mom persisted and tried to get ethics to do something about it and, the more noise she made, the worse standing SHE was in. This is a woman who was always on call to help with any production that was needed for events around the Pac base. Super upstat and she distanced herself from the org because of the injustice.

    Then I go to one of Gerhard’s postulate seminars and here is the sexual offender, signing people up and working with the AO OT Committee, as if he’s some upstat. I was furious.

    So you see, this isn’t one, isolated incident with “Ellen”. It is a pattern that the criminal doesn’t get declared but the good person, trying to get help and get justice is told to shut up and to stop making waves – or we’ll declare YOU. Or, they ridicule the mom and tell her that she’s imagining things.

    I could talk about a few other situations where the perpetrator should have been declared but, because they had money, they were allowed to stay in (and spend said money) rather than the group being protected by declaring the anti-social.

    As a point of reference, an old-timer told me a story that someone on the Apollo had sex with a 14 year old girl. Ron sent him back to LA on a cattle boat WITHOUT pay. Maybe he didn’t report him to the authorities but he made sure that the guy knew he was persona non grata in the group.

    Declaring was supposed to be used for the person’s own protection against someone who was actually a threat to them or from someone who was a risk to have around good people (hostile, violent or criminal).

    The way declares are being used now, it’s executive C/Sing of the ethics section. DM says, “They are a risk to me or my income – declare ’em! Off with their heads!”

    Oh, and that mom is out now, too. Next time, maybe I’ll tell you about her son nearly dying while in the SO.

    • MostEthicalPimp

      I’m wondering if I don’t know the name of the 14 year old girl. email me and I’ll give the name I think it is. m8r-vbbt6b@mailinator.com

      • indie8million

        Hi MEPimp. I don’t know the girl’s name to confirm it or anything. Were you on the ship at that time?

      • indie8million

        Kind of a funny story I heard was that, because it was the 60’s, the decade of the sexual revolution, the people on the ship were always changing partners. From what I heard, it was causing upset and upheaval from jealousy etc.
        One day Ron called all of the couples up on deck. He called everyone’s attention to the above situation and then proceeded to have a group ceremony so that each couple was then married, so stopping the second dynamic musical chairs on the ship.

        Some may have negative things to say about that, too, but I thought it was a hilarious solution to the problem.
        Were you there for that, ME PIMP?

        • MostEthicalPimp

          I’m 31… So maybe last life time… πŸ˜‰ My dad told me about an underaged girl he knew who claimed to have been gang banged on the apollo. I was wondering if it was the same girl you mentioned. She said it was called an OT fuck. Good story with ending of musical chairs though.

    For those who have concerns about child abuse, there is a story in the media now that will stun. http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/2015/07/09/jailed-kids/29944037/ If you think this is unusual for a court to place blame on a protective parent, and children who refuse to be victims of violence, it isn’t. It’s called “The Fatherhood Initiative”, which began with Nixon and the government’s desire not to pay to enforce child support even in situations where women and children are brutalized. Often when violence is reported to the courts, the tables then turn and the blame is placed on the wrong parent. This judge compares the family to Charlie Manson and his “cult”.

  • aegerprimo

    The treatment of Scientology children is atrocious. One of the first books I read on my way to becoming an EX-Scientologist for real… was Margery Wakefield’s book “The Road to Xenu”. One chapter in her book she was sent to help out in the Scientology nursery. Here is a powerful and appropriate excerpt from her book…

    On another day, Aileen called me into her office and said, “I want you to go help out at the nursery. They are short staffed.”

    I followed her directions as I walked the twenty or so blocks to a small windowless building on Franklin Street. So this is where they keep the children, I thought to myself, suddenly realizing that I had seen no young children in the weeks I had been in Scientology, even though I knew many of the staff were married. As I passed the fenced back yard, I saw a dozen toddlers wandering around in the dirt, clothed only in diapers. There was no grass in the yard, just several large trees surrounded by dirt. The children had no toys, and were playing with each other or using their hands to draw pictures in the dirt.

    I went to the door on the far side of the building on which was a small blue and white sign printed “Cadet Org, Church of Scientology.”

    I was let in the building, and as I looked around I was greeted by a dismal sight. The walls of the rooms and the hallway surrounding me were painted stark white. The floors were a dull grey and dirty linoleum. There were no pictures on the walls, no decorations of any kind. Wandering in the hallways and in the two rooms I could see several dozen children dressed only in diapers and t-shirts. Most looked as if they had not been bathed recently. Several carried bottles, but most were just wandering in the hallway or sleeping on the bare floor. The rooms were bare of furniture and there were no toys, books, or any of the normal and familiar signs of childhood. I could smell urine in the room, and I heard many small voices crying plaintively. A young girl in a Sea Org uniform came up to me and greeted me. She was one of two staff members in charge of all these children.

    “Where do you keep their toys and books?” I asked the young girl, whose name was Colleen.

    “They don’t have any,” she answered in an expressionless voice. “Children are down statistics, and you don’t reward down statistics. That’s in the tech.”

    “But what do they do all day?” I asked her noticing that many of the children had a forlorn look about them. I had a sudden instinct to grab as many children as I could and run out the door.

    “We just watch them. They play in the back yard. If their parents’ stats (statistics) are up, they can come and see their children for a hour or so after dinner.”

    “Do they sleep here?” I asked her.

    “Yes, most of them do.” She showed me a room further down the hallway. In the room were rows of cribs, side by side, about a dozen in all in the small room. “Some of the Sea Org children stay here, and some are sent to a ranch in Mexico if their parents are going to be on a mission for a long time,” she explained.

    “But don’t the parents miss their children?” I asked.

    “Remember,” she told me severely, “children are part of the second dynamic. The third dynamic (the group) is more important than the second dynamic. The rule in Scientology is `the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics.’ Our main purpose in Scientology is to clear the planet. Don’t ever forget that. Until the children can begin to work for the group, they are downstats, and they can’t be rewarded. Besides, Hubbard says that children are just thetans in small bodies. They are just as responsible as adults. We have to get their ethics in. So we don’t reward them until they can produce.”

    At that, she led me into a back room in which there was a solitary playpen. In the playpen was a tiny baby, female and horribly deformed. Her face was grotesque and distorted and her body twisted. One leg was shorter than the other, and her arms were abnormally short and not properly formed. “This is Lisa,” Colleen informed me. “Her mother is on staff. She took LSD when she was pregnant.” She bent over the edge of the pen and stroked the baby’s head. The baby seemed to be having trouble breathing and her eyes looked clouded.

    “She’s blind, but she can hear you. We just talk to her and hold her. But I don’t think she’s going to live very long.” Colleen reached down and picked up the poor creature and handed her to me. I spent the rest of the day holding and walking with baby Lisa. I walked around and tried to make contact with some of the other children. They crowded around me, desperate for attention.

    At the end of the day, I left the building and walked home, numb with the shock of what I had seen during the day. From that day, whenever I received any money from home, or had any money left from my meager Sea Org pay, I would walk over to the drugstore on Alvarado Street and buy cheap children’s books or crayons for the children of the Cadet Org.

    I returned to the Cadet Org several days later for another babysitting shift and was told that baby Lisa had died two days earlier.

    • And I’m Cute, Too

      Thank you, AP. I hadn’t read this before today.

      “Downstat”. I just can’t imagine any human being looking on a crying child, and saying or even thinking something so heartless.

      The weakest and most vulnerable people in our society, and Scientologists are being told not to “reward” them, by giving them toys, or attention, or even (apparently) proper hygiene and medical care. And why? Because they can’t “produce”. They can’t make money or lure in “raw meat”, so they don’t deserve to have their needs met.

      I’m not sure I can think of a word that adequately describes this attitude, especially towards children. Sick. Perverse. Twisted. Disgusting. Obscene. Abominable. They all come to mind, and yet none seem quite right.

      The good news is, the Cadet Org is gone. The bad news is, the abuse and contempt go on.

      • aegerprimo

        Have you read Jenna Miscavige Hill’s book Beyond Belief yet? She grew up in such an environment, where children were considered “downstat” and hidden away at a boarding school, if you can call it that, where they never saw their parents. The kids at her “school” worked like slaves cleaning and building and landscaping when children should be playing.

        A couple more descriptive words to add to your list; despicable and heinous.

  • And I’m Cute, Too

    I’m disgusted and revolted, but I can’t say I’m surprised. I knew a story like this was coming. With its contempt for real therapy, for the legal system, for the “wog” world in general, and most of all for children, I just knew a story of mishandled child abuse would come to the surface eventually.

    One aspect that did shock me was DayCareSon doing his “liability” formula by spending time in his victims’ homes. Can you imagine being a little girl and being forced to live in the same house as this freak?

    It reminds me horribly of one case that was mentioned in the lawsuit against Sovereign Grace Ministries. One teenage boy confessed to molesting a 3-year-old girl, and the leaders in that church tried to handle it “in house”. One of their most heartless and clueless ideas was make the girl meet with her abuser. She was so terrified at the sight of him that she hid under a table, but the leaders still tried to force her to forgive and “reconcile” with him. And all of this on top of failing to report the molestation to authorities, and discouraging the mother from doing so.

    http://thewartburgwatch.com/tww2/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/20130514115743611.pdf

    May this story, and all those yet to be told, do their part in bringing Scientology to justice, if only in a poetic sense.

        TUBML is a great book, and has a lot of history in it, but I cannot recommend strongly enough that you read A Piece of Blue Sky by Jon Atack, Going Clear (so much more than is n the movie, good as it is) by Lawrence Wright, Blown for Good by Marc Headley and “Counterfeit Dreams” by Jefferson Hawkins… “Barefaced Messiah” is wonderful too as an overview and porrait of Hubbard.

        A real thriller and moving personal memoir, as wella sn up-close-an-monsteral look at life in the CoS and CoB, the Captain of the Ankle-Biters, David Miscavige, Pope to all His Dopes-on-the-Ropes of False Hopes, written by his very own niece, Jenna Miscavige.

        The subject is so vast, and our motto (“Scientology: It is Always Worse Than You Think”) is so true that it is really good to get a bit of an overview and perspective before jumping down the Rabbit-Hole with all us Hunks (or is that ‘Hunkered’) here in The Bunker.

      If ever there were a bunker article to bump up for attention it’s this one Nat.

      • There have been a lot of important stories over the years. And I didn’t say doing it was cuckoo — just the intensity is all. It was a little disturbing is all.

    This is a story that makes me think, just when you think you have heard it all. Bam!!!

      Thinking are you?

      DISALLOWED! @bitemebigtime:disqus is PTS to Tony Ortega!

  • Sally Atwater

    First of all Tony Ortega you are amazing! The work you are doing is helping alot of people so keep it up. Just wondering a few things. Why wasn’t one mom (alias Ellen) pressing charges enough? Also don’t the other children have rights too? If they are interviewed and show that this wrong doing has occurred wouldn’t the testimony of the children also weigh in a bit? Are the parents really allowed to just not have kids interviewed and testify if a crime has been committed against them? What was the crime that the kid was charged with? Why is the name of this molester kid being protected? He’s just going to go on and continue this into adulthood. Wouldn’t it benefit others to know his name. Are you not publishing it for fear of slander? Some of these things are really bothering me.

    KIDS PHOTO CAPTION:

    Three little toddlers! Can you spot the snitch?

    (Trick Question! They have all already snitched on each other!

    Remember when LRH invented the Lullaby and the idea of singing and putting notes to rhythm, he began with the haunting ballad:

    Turn in Mama,
    Turn in Papa,
    Drop a dime on
    SP Grandma!
    Siblings bug you?
    Turn ’em all in!
    Not filing a KR is the
    only real sin!

    (now go get my f’ing ashtray you 8 year-old, sniveling HE&R “Where’s Mommy?” future amateur abortionist and unfaithful wife!)

    So the mother who went to teh police is now covering up for the molester. Won’t name him so that others can avoid a sexual preditor.
