Gretchen Carlson slams Danny Masterson and Scientology ‘arbitration’ to Congress

 
Former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson took her battle against forced arbitration and secrecy agreements that keep sexual harassment under wraps to a House Judiciary subcommittee today, and as an example of the way women are prevented from getting justice she brought up the case of Danny Masterson’s rape accusers, who have been forced into “religious arbitration.”

It was the only mention of that particular case during the hearing held by the Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law subcommittee which otherwise tended to focus on whether workers know that they’re giving up the right to sue when they sign contracts with binding arbitration clauses.

But Carlson’s testimony was dramatic and focused on how women are being silenced by such contracts. And then she brought up the plight of the women who sued Masterson, the Church of Scientology, and church leader David Miscavige in 2019. (Please see our previous story about why the ruling by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Steven Kleifield was so egregious, since it will allow Danny Masterson to take part in the proceeding with his victims.)

Carlson has been pushing for legislation that would end such secret agreements, and her testimony today was intended to help another attempt to pass a bill. From a Marketwatch story:

The Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal (FAIR) Act would ban agreements like mandatory arbitration, which takes away the rights of people to take legal action and participate in class-action lawsuits in case of employment, consumer, antitrust and civil rights disputes. It would allow employees to sue their employers in cases of wage theft, harassment or discrimination, or customers to sue companies over fraud, privacy violations, product liability and more.

Here’s Carlson’s entire opening testimony…

 

 
Chrissie Carnell Bixler, one of the women suing Masterson, filed a letter for the subcommittee that was formally entered into the record, and so was a letter written by another former Scientologist whose lawsuit has been forced into religious arbitration, Valerie Haney. Here are both of them.

 
Chrissie Carnell-Bixler

My name is Chrissie Carnell-Bixler and I am a wife and mother living in Los Angeles, California. I am also a rape and cult survivor. I respectfully submit this statement for the record on the hearing for the FAIR Act on February 9, 2021. I have omitted my address purposefully due to the repeated and horrific acts of intimidation, harassment and stalking I have experienced described more fully below.

When I was eighteen years old, I started a six year relationship with a man who was a member of the church of Scientology. This man was extremely abusive both emotionally and physically and this man brought me into his religion of Scientology. I was told I was broken and damaged and Scientology was the only answer. I was an active Scientologist throughout my relationship with this man.

When the abuse began to escalate, and the sexual abuse became more violent, I went to his church to report the rapes and sexual abuses I suffered hoping they would help him. Instead I was punished. I was told by Scientology officials that I cannot say the word “rape” as it’s not rape if I’m in a relationship with the person. I was also told that I did something to deserve the abuse so I would be the one getting “handled.” I was shown in the Scientology Ethics Book that it is a High Crime in Scientology to report another Scientologist to the law enforcement agencies. I was told that I could be declared a Suppressive Person and then I was shown the handling of Suppressive Persons by the Church of Scientology and that I would be lied to, tricked, sued, and ultimately destroyed. I understood what that meant and I was terrified so I never again told anyone what my rapist had done to me until years later when I married my husband.

Then in 2016 I found out that my rapist had also raped other young Scientologist women (and later other non-Scientologist women.) It was in 2016 that I called RAINN and told them the things this man did to me and how the church of Scientology told me it’s not rape. The person I spoke with at RAINN informed me that it was, in fact, rape, and that I should file a police report. I filed a police report with the LAPD in December of 2016. I also emailed the officials at Scientology letting them know that I know now their role in silencing the rape victims of this man they protected and that I am no longer a Scientologist.

Immediately they made good on their threats to me back when I reported the rape and abuses. Under Scientology’s Ethics and Justice I was to be considered a Suppressive Person and my “handling” was to be “Fair Game” under Scientology order. Since December of 2016 until this present day my husband Cedric Bixler-Zavala, my two young sons, and I have been living in terror! We have been constantly surveilled, followed, filmed, harassed, attacked, threatened. All of our accounts have been hacked, our WiFi, home security system, home cameras, etc have been hacked and disabled. Two of our beloved family pets have been killed.

While our criminal case had been thoroughly investigated, in June of 2020 my rapist was charged by the LADA’s office on 3 counts of rape by force or fear and is looking at 45 years to life in prison.

In 2019, three of his rape survivors along with myself and my husband filed a civil lawsuit in the hopes that the church of Scientology would end its terror campaign over all of us. The church of Scientology argued that we all had signed an agreement with Scientology that should we have any disputes with the church that we agree to an internal “religious arbitration.” I never knew I had signed this agreement. Apparently any person who signs up for a Scientology service (even if you are not a member and only want to do one service like my husband) you are forever beholden to the church of Scientology’s justice system.

Judge Steven Kleifield of the Los Angeles Superior Court agreed that our arbitration agreements are valid and ordered us to Scientology’s version of arbitration under the rules and justice of Scientology. The same Scientology justice who told me it wasn’t rape. The same Scientology justice who believes I am the one who committed High Crimes by going to the police. The same Scientology justice that has mercilessly stalked, harassed, threatened me and my family for years. The same Scientology justice that thought it a good “handling” for me that they murdered my beloved dogs. I am ordered to go to my abusers for justice now pursuant to a system that is set up to condemn me, all because I signed something I was never allowed to read while in Scientology many, many years ago, even though I do not subscribe to this “religion” nor believe in any of its beliefs. I am terrified of them. I am ordered to go back to my abusers even though I have a criminal protective order in place with my rapist and any of his “agents,” which Scientology agrees they are. Judge Kleifield also ruled that our rapist gets to participate in the arbitration, and under Scientology’s rules our rapist could even be our arbiter.

The thought of having to return to my abusers to beg them to stop harassing me and my family is crippling. Since Judge Kleifield’s ruling, I’ve not been able to leave my home out of indescribable fear. I have debilitating panic attacks. My husband is suffering. My poor children who are 7 years old now, have been witnessing the attacks on their family and home since they were 3 years old. As much as I’ve tried to shield my children from these horrific attacks, they are deeply affected by everything that’s happened to us.

I beg you on hands and knees to pass the FAIR Act to restore equal justice. No one should be beholden to any organization especially when some of the disputes are of criminal nature. No one should be beholden to any organization for life.

 
Valerie Haney

My name is Valerie Haney and I am a former Scientologist who was a victim of abuse and human trafficking while trapped within Scientology and after I was able to escape I have
been continuously and systematically stalked, harassed and threatened at the direction of Scientology.

I decided it was time to seek justice and fight back. I retained counsel and have a current case filed against Scientology in Los Angeles, CA.

To provide some context, I was born to Scientologist parents in 1979. From 1985 until 1991, from ages 5 – 12, I lived at the Church of Scientology’s Spiritual Headquarters, or “Flag Land Base” in Clearwater, Florida. I also attended “school” in Clearwater, Florida where I was instructed on Scientology’s practices, rather than being provided with the minimum compulsory education required under law.

From a young age, I was told what I could and could not say publicly about Scientology, and was taught never to question Scientology’s teachings and practices. I could not speak publicly about Scientology without a direct order from another high-ranking member in Scientology. I was told that I could never go to the police and/or any government agency, because they were the enemy of Scientology. I was also not permitted to meet or speak with a “wog” (civilian) attorney.

As a Scientologist, I was told and raised to believe that I only had rights that were afforded to me by Scientology. I was never told or had any information that I was allowed to view regarding what rights I had as a citizen of the United States. I was made to “sign over” my rights to Scientology or else it would be a sin against the “Church.” Scientology brainwashed me so that I did not understand or appreciate that I had rights as an individual. I was educated in Scientology “schools.” I was not taught that individuals outside of Scientology had rights afforded to them by the government and the law or that rights could come from any source but Scientology.

I was told that the police were hostile and enemies of and to Scientology and that “wog” (civilian) law enforcement was hostile to Scientology and that they could not and would not help me under any circumstances and that I would be punished by the Church for even attempting to speak with them.

Signing documents was a required and non-negotiable part of receiving any services or taking any position within Scientology. Being born into Scientology there was no option other than to sign whatever was put in front of me. I was never given a choice whether or not to sign any agreements, including any forced arbitration agreements. Every time I signed a document, it was in front of a high-ranking Scientology official. I was not permitted time to review any of these documents. The official who handed me these documents to sign would summarize the contents in their own words and I would then be required to sign with the official standing over me. If I took too long or attempted to read these documents, I would be told, “are you are done yet, just sign it.” I sometimes asked if I could take these documents home with me to review and I was told that was “not possible.”

In 1995 when I was 15 years old, I joined the Sea Org in Clearwater, Florida and in approximately 2002 or 2003 as a Sea Org member I moved to Gold Base, located in California. When I joined the Sea Org, I was forced to sign a “billion-year contract” dedicating my life to serving Scientology. From my arrival until my escape, I was forced to live in communal housing and subjected to laborious and back- breaking work for an average of 100 hours per week. I was paid less than fifty dollars per week.

I was verbally, physically, and psychologically restricted from leaving the Gold Base. I had little to no contact with family or friends, including my husband, throughout my time at Gold Base. Scientology was my sole source of security, survival, information and human contact. Scientology also heavily censored any and all of my communication with relatives, friends, and the outside world, including reading my mail and listening to my phone calls. Eventually, I was sent to work on filming promotional videos for Scientology. The non-Scientologist actors hired for the promotional videos were my only “life-line” to the world outside Scientology.

In 2016, I submitted written requests to leave the Sea Org to my superiors seven times. All requests were denied. On one occasion, I was physically restrained and prevented from leaving. In November 2016, I learned that filming would be moved off Gold Base to a location where I would lose the non-Scientologist “life-line” to the outside world. I decided to make an escape attempt and hid in the trunk of an actor’s car to leave Gold Base. I was then able to reunite with my father.

My father, who was a Scientologist, encouraged me to return and complete the Church’s official exit procedure, known as “routing out.” The Church assured me this process would take no more than three weeks. Instead I was held for three months and again Scientology treated me like a prisoner. I was forced to do everything with a “handler,” including using the bathroom,
showering, and sleeping. I was made to do videotaped interrogations in which I was forced to make false confessions about myself and provide false positive testimonials about my experiences with CSI.

During the routing out process, I was made to sign the departure documents in a room with only Scientology’s general counsel and a man armed with a gun. I do not know the contents of any of the documents I signed. I was not given copies of the documents. I signed any document that was given to me because I just wanted it to be over and to get out of there. It was under these conditions that I was coerced to sign agreements with the Church of Scientology, under the constant threat of imprisonment. I was not given time to read the agreements before I signed them and I signed agreements with Scientology, particularly the Staff Departure Release Agreement, because I was desperate to escape Scientology and I would be further punished or imprisoned if I did not comply. I never had any opportunity or chance to negotiate any of the terms of the arbitration agreements or any documents that I signed while a Scientologist.

Moreover, if you speak about Scientology in any way that Scientology deems negative, regardless of the truth, you are deemed a suppressive person and an enemy of Scientology. As such, if this case is arbitrated by a panel of Scientologists there is no way that I will receive a fair, unbiased and neutral panel of individuals who will decide my case in arbitration. Instead, the panel chosen will be Scientologists who have been trained and taught by Scientology that any person who speaks out, regardless of the truth, is evil and a sinner. It will be in that light and with those biases that I will “judged” when I am forced by the court to engage in what even the Judge has said is forced “religious arbitration.”

Currently the California Courts are enforcing the forced religious arbitration decide the circumstances described above. I will be forced to reenter a Scientology building be judged by Scientologists despite being a victim of numerous crimes. In other words, I am being forced by the judicial system to be revictimized by going through religious arbitration which is known in Scientology as a committee of evidence. This is yet another way that Scientology attempts to silence those they have victimized and wronged. The psychological warfare and damage that Scientology has already done to me has resulted in me being diagnosed with PTSD and me having to see a trauma specialist for the abuse I endured and have continued to endure. A court subjecting me to this torture again is inhumane.

I humbly ask that Congress pass the FAIR Act so that victims and those wronged by large organizations like Scientology and others will have a voice and be properly judged by a jury of their peer with a fair and neutral judge presiding over the case. Again, I urge you to pass the FAIR Act to restore equal access to justice for people like me.

“That’s a trick I learned from Commander Thompson, by the way. He used to train cats. It’s almost impossible to train a house cat — I mean really train a house cat into doing all sorts of dog tricks and so forth. He used to be able to do that, and he taught me how to train cats when I was a kid. He would wait for the cat to do something and then he’d reward it. And if you don’t think that requires patience! You’re going to wait for this cat to do something that’s going to be totally accidental, and then you’re going to approve of it. Wow! Oh, you can just burn up hours and hours and hours trying to train a cat.” — L. Ron Hubbard, February 11, 1957

“TIME MACHINE ORDERS: I issue a lot of TM orders and queries. Very many of them are routed straight back to me. Those who don’t know what dreadful things happen to their Ethics Files if the TM doesn’t know they have answered the order or query should find out very fast as some Ethics Files must be getting very fat indeed. Those who think they know should check up on it. The PL to refer to is in Vol 0 of the OEC Book.” — LRH Pers Comm, February 11, 1971

Overheard in the FreeZone

“Total Knowingness, initially experienced solo as a subjective recognition point is quite different to objective exteriorisation from the entire theta/mest construct experienced with an auditor in session and the recognition of total mutual knowingness in PT outside all. Likewise practical total knowingness, subjective, objective and practical tested, verified and demonstrated with regard to truth per definition in session with an Auditor — the precise consideration, the precise time, place, form and event, in PT — is a further gradient of recognition which then opens up the route to OT per definition.”

Past is Prologue

1998: A number of court filings regarding Keith Henson were posted this week, including this filing to show that the posting of NOTS 34 material was not “willful” under copyright law. “Defendant (if permitted) will produce witnesses to the nature of the NOTs 34, ‘The Sequence for Handling a Physical Condition.’ Defendant maintains that NOTs 34 is an instruction manual for criminal activity. NOTs 34 specifically claims ‘healing’ with the E-meter, a claim which (besides being illegal) was specifically denied to all Scientology organizations by Judge Gasell in an order, a copy of which has been provided to this court. Just this morning news has come from Germany of a person who is reported to have died from the effects of scientology’s ‘medical’ treatment.”
