Derek Bloch: Why is Scientology keeping a dying mother away from her son?

[Theresa and her son Derek]

We first wrote about Derek Bloch’s story of being victimized by Scientology homophobia back in 2012. He’s continued to be a favorite of ours here in the Underground Bunker, and he’s written on Scientology’s toxic ‘disconnection’ policy for us numerous times. Recently he received some devastating news, and we asked him to tell us how he was coping with it.

My mother’s name is Theresa Norene (Pehl) Bloch. She was born September 17, 1961. Her late mother, Linda, passed in 2002 from leukemia. Her father’s name is Bill. He is around 80 years old and incredibly healthy. He makes delicious wine at his home in Texas from all kinds of different fruits.

What are Scientologists being told about the Danny Masterson rape case?

 
What are Scientologists being told about the Danny Masterson rape case? Very little. They don’t say “Danny Masterson,” “rape,” or “Scientology.” They’re being told he’s innocent, even if they can’t say his name or mention the charges.
