For those of you who responded to this already, thank
you! For the rest, especially Clearwater-area guys,
please take a few minutes to do this one. And I have a
slight modification of what’s needed. See below.


This is especially important for the Clearwater-area
guys but anyone can do it.

A very nasty article came out in the St. Petersburg
Times today. If you are not going to write this
letter, I would rather you not even read the article.

Even if you’re doing the assignment, reading the
article is optional. It’s basically just a pack of
falsehoods about how SPs are “victims” because they
have been declared and cut off from their friends and
families. The article neglects to mention the
horrendous suppressive acts that the SPs committed in
order to get declared. They also neglect to mention
that the doors remain open to these people if they
cease their suppressive acts, take responsibility for
what they’ve done, and make up the damage.

Here’s your assignment.
Write a letter to the editor. What we want to do is
“fill the vacuum”.

Here is the viewpoint I’d like you to write from:
-The SP Times is a paper distributed in a community
where there are thousands of Scientologists. We are
sick and tired of the misinterpretation of our beliefs
and practices. This is intended editorializing or
sensationilistic reporting for the purpose of
misinterpreting Church beliefs. The Church has a huge
presence here. Scientologists are more than a little
happy about what is happening in Scientology, our
involvement and the various things we are
doing to help Man – and the St. Pete Times articles
just have nothing to do with it.

Don’t defend against what the article says, just tell
the truth about your experience in Scientology. You
can use specific positive examples of Scientology in
your life or in social betterment outreaches.

These letters have to be qualed. Send your letter only
to me and I’ll get them approved and back to you in a
day or two.

Thank you,

The unperson

Scientologists who cross their religion can be
declared suppressive persons, shunned by peers and
ostracized by family.

By ROBERT FARLEY, Times Staff Writer
Published June 25, 2006

“The only reason to declare someone a suppressive
person is to give them a road map to their own
salvation.”- BEN SHAW, Scientology spokesman

Church spokesman says Times report is unfair
Some Scientology terms
SP profiles

“It’s fun creating a new life. I just wish the ones I
love more than anyone in the world could be part of
it.” – Caroline Brown, whose daughter no longer sees
or speaks to her

“It’s the ultimate weapon for them because no one can
talk to you.” – Randy Payne, on the threat of being
declared a suppressive person

“The hardest thing for me is explaining to my daughter
why she can’t see her dad.” – Astra Woodcraft, who
left Scientology, and split with her family

Kathy Feshbach reversed an invitation when she learned
her guest was labeled an SP.

Religions have always penalized those who betray the

Catholics excommunicate, barring the wayward from
church rites. The Amish, Jehovah’s Witnesses and some
orthodox Jewish sects shun their nonconformists.

In the Tampa Bay area’s burgeoning Scientology
community, members abide by a policy considered by
some religious experts extreme: Scientologists declare
their outcasts “suppressive persons.”

Another Scientology policy – called “disconnection” –
forbids Scientologists from interacting with a
suppressive person. No calls, no letters, no contact.

An SP is a pariah. Anyone who communicates with an SP
risks being branded an SP himself.

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote the policies
four decades ago, church leaders say, not as a tool to
oust members but to provide those going astray with a
mechanism to return to the church’s good graces. That
aligns with Scientology’s tenets of improving
communication, strengthening relationships.

But SPs who have felt the sting and other church
critics say the suppressive person policy is a
sledgehammer to keep marginal members in line – and in
the flock.

Whatever Scientology’s motivation, its suppressive
person policy results in wrenching pain, say a dozen
SPs interviewed by the St. Petersburg Times.

Some have gone years without seeing or talking with
sons, daughters, mothers, fathers – all of whom abide
by Scientology’s no-contact requirement.

For a Scientologist thinking of forsaking the church,
the decision is grueling: stay in or risk being
ostracized from loved ones and friends.

It left Caroline Brown in Cincinnati, weeping at the
sight of a basketball court.

* * *

Like so many Scientologists, Caroline and her family
came to Clearwater in 1991 to escape the “wog”
non-Scientology world.

By 1998, she was divorced and living with her teenage
daughter, Darby Zoccali. Her ex-husband and son lived
together just a few miles away.

Caroline was unhappy, depressed. Her drinking strained
her relationship with Darby.

Mother and daughter agreed Caroline could give her
life new purpose by taking a Scientology job in Ohio.
As a church staffer, her Scientology counseling would
be free.

Darby, who just turned 18, stayed in Clearwater in her
own apartment.

But the counseling in Cincinnati didn’t help, Caroline
said. Depressed and having anxiety attacks, she was
flat broke and crying herself to sleep.

Walking past a basketball court one day, she burst
into tears.

Her son played basketball. What was she doing in
Cincinnati, working 14 hours a day, seven days a week,
a thousand miles away from her son and daughter?

Caroline decided to bolt – from Cincinnati and from
Scientology – even though she knew she almost
certainly would be declared a suppressive person.

Hers was an “unauthorized departure,” akin to going
AWOL. To leave church service in good standing,
Scientology staffers must complete “sec checks” –
short for security checks.

They are like confessionals. Scientologists spell out
transgressions to “feel better about them and take
responsibility for them,” Clearwater church spokesman
Ben Shaw said. “It is one of the most invigorating
experiences you can imagine.”

The process can take months. Fellow church staffers
pose questions to the outgoing member seeking to
discover “crimes” deemed to be the source of
suppressive acts.

Questions include whether an SP has made statements
against Scientology to friends or to the media, but
the sec checks can be extremely personal, according to
church documents obtained by the Times. Questions can
probe possible drug use, history of theft or
nonpayment of taxes, or ask about masturbation or

A staffer who leaves without routing out through sec
checks violates a signed church contract, Shaw said,
and likely will be declared an SP.

That’s what happened to Caroline. After she returned
to Clearwater, the Scientology community turned its

She bumped into an old Scientology friend at a Dollar
Store. Without so much as a hello, the woman said, “Go
handle it. You go fix it. Handle it.”

Darby wrote her mother a disconnection letter, and
helped her brother, then 14, write one too. The
letters are clear: Until you get back on good terms
with Scientology, Mom, we’re disconnecting.

Darby says her decision to disconnect from her mother
had nothing to do with Scientology. She says her
mother doesn’t need to become a Scientologist again
for them to have a relationship. But she needs to do
the sec checks to remove the SP label.

Her message for her mother: “All you have to do is fix
it. So do it. It’s not that horrible.”

Now 23, Darby is a Pilates instructor and a service
broker for her boyfriend’s telecom company. She took
her first Scientology class when her mother was in

“Every time I used it, my life got better,” she said.
“I’m not going to give that up for someone who created
so much pain.”

Her mother knew the consequences of walking away.
“It’s more like she disconnected from me,” Darby said.

When Caroline got her son’s disconnection letter, she
called a lawyer. Her parental rights trumped
Scientology’s disconnection doctrine. She and the boy
met at Cody’s Roadhouse in Clearwater.

“I love you more than any other human being on the
planet,” she told her son.

He lit up, she said. She now sees him regularly. But
not Darby.

“My heart is still broken about not having my family,”
Caroline said. “I’m the one who got her (Darby) in it,
I’d like to be the one who gets her out.”

Remarried now, Caroline attends St. Petersburg
College, hoping to become an art teacher.

“It’s fun creating a new life,” she said. “I just wish
the ones I love more than anyone in the world could be
part of it.”

The suppressive persons who spoke to the Times were
declared SPs because they publicly and repeatedly
challenged the church. They also faced the church’s
regimented internal justice system.

The process typically begins with a Scientologist
writing a “knowledge report” about another church
member, outlining alleged transgressions. The accused
may be directed to undergo ethics counseling or
ordered to face a “committee of evidence,” a tribunal
of church staff members who, acting as jurors,
determine if the person has committed suppressive

Suppressive acts must be renounced, and suppressive
persons must atone. Failing to comply carries heavy
consequences, as Randy Payne discovered.

* * *

For two decades, Payne, 53, was a dedicated
Scientologist. He and his wife published a Scientology
newspaper in Clearwater. He paid tens of thousands of
dollars for Scientology training.

He expanded his Clearwater private school, Lighthouse,
which incorporated L. Ron Hubbard’s study techniques,
and opened sister schools in Scientology’s target
markets of Hungary, the Czech Republic and Italy.

To use Hubbard’s “tech” and materials, Payne agreed to
pay 10 percent of his schools’ revenues. He paid the
fee initially, but stopped in 1997 because he said his
curriculum had evolved to a point where Hubbard’s
techniques were used only marginally.

The church threatened to declare him an SP.

“It’s the ultimate weapon for them because no one can
talk to you,” Payne said.

He pleaded his case through four committees of
evidence – two held in Clearwater, two in Los Angeles.
He formally was declared a suppressive person on May
11, 2003. The order said Payne “spread false and
derogatory statements to others about Scientology and
Church staff.”

Scientology agents sought to cut off Payne’s ties to
the church community. A church ethics officer told an
employee at Payne’s school that he needed to quit,
according to a note the employee wrote to Payne.
Church staffers informed Payne’s students who were
Scientologists that Payne had been declared and that
they should leave the school, he said.

The suppressive person policy was used against him as
a form of extortion, Payne said, to get him to pay the

He wrote legislators and met with law enforcement
officials, asking they investigate his claim of

Last October, Payne made a more public protest that
could happen only in Clearwater. During the opening
moments of a Clearwater City Council meeting, when
residents typically complain about parking problems
and potholes, Payne stood and with TV cameras
recording his every word, complained about the Church
of Scientology:

“It is my belief that this church’s leadership has
created a corrupt internal justice system to enforce
its money-making scheme on individuals and

Council members sat mute.

* * *

Extreme? Perhaps. Effective? Definitely.

That’s the view of many religious scholars who say the
motive behind Scientology’s suppressive person
doctrine is clear: keep members from breaking ranks.

“That’s the way the church keeps discipline,” said J.
Gordon Melton, director of the Institute for the Study
of American Religion, a think tank in Santa Barbara,
Calif., that focuses on smaller groups. “For them,
that’s an internal control mechanism.”

Scientology’s disconnection requirement is far more
extreme than the severing practices of most modern
religions, Melton said.

“I just think it would be better for all concerned if
they just let them go ahead and get out and everyone
goes their own way, and not make such a big deal of
it,” said Melton. “The policy hurts everybody.”

Church spokesman Shaw suggested the Times interview
two other professors who have testified in
Scientology’s behalf in legal cases.

“It is rather strict,” said the first, F.K. Flinn,
adjunct professor of religious studies at Washington
University in St. Louis. It also is characteristic of
a young religion, he said.

“It has to do with feeling threatened because you’re
not that big. You do everything you can to keep unity
in the group.”

Scientology is not as controlling as were the early
Christians, Flinn said. Its SP practices are akin to
the shunning of the Amish and Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Some Amish communities allow contact with close
friends and families; Jehovah’s Witnesses cut off all
communication except in cases of family business or

The second expert Shaw suggested, Newton Maloney, a
professor at the Fuller Theological Seminary in
Pasadena, Calif., characterized Scientology’s
disconnection policy as “too extreme,” particularly as
it affects families.

“Some people I’ve talked to, they just wanted to go on
with their lives and they wanted to be in touch with
their daughter or son or parent. The shunning was just
painful. And I don’t know what it was accomplishing.

“And the very terms they use are scary, aren’t they?”

Shaw says the church’s policy is far from extreme.
Doesn’t everyone distance themselves from negative

“Prisoners are disconnected from society,” Shaw said.
“Employees are fired, spouses scorned and divorced by
their partner.”

Unethical lawyers are disbarred. Discriminatory
businesses are boycotted. Journalists who fabricate
stories are fired, he said.

“All of these actions represent the practice of
disconnection in cases where an antisocial person will
not reform or restrain their destructive actions.”

The suppressive person and disconnection policies are
a last resort, Shaw said.

“The only reason to declare someone a suppressive
person is to give them a road map to their own

And many SPs have returned.

Hubbard once wrote that SPs were “fair game,” meaning
that they could be “tricked, sued or lied to or
destroyed.” Hubbard canceled the “fair game” policy in
1976, saying it was never intended to authorize
“illegal or harassment type acts against anyone.”
Church critics, however, remain wary.

* * *

Potential Trouble Source. No Scientologist wants to be
called that. PTSs can’t take classes or get the
spiritual counseling called auditing. But if you
maintain contact with a suppressive person, that’s
what you are.

Two recorded messages left last year on the answering
machine of Creed Pearson illustrate just how serious
this can be.

The caller: Scientologist Kathy Feshbach, a major
contributor and founder of a Scientology mission in

The first call was placed on March 2.

“Hi … this is Kathy Feshbach. … Ah, George Mariani
is running for mayor again in Belleair, called us;
wants us to have all our friends over on Sunday at our
house at 4 for him to talk. It’s really important
because No.1, he is reaching for us, the
Scientologists. So that’s really a good indicator. So
I really want to have a big showing for him. … So,
anyway, it’s a big deal that the mayor called us so I
really want you guys to come over.”

What Feshbach did not know was that Pearson – a
Scientologist for 25 years and big church donor – had
been declared a suppressive person the previous month.
Pearson, 50, said he was declared because he told his
friends in Scientology that the religion was being
altered by current management. He also said L. Ron
Hubbard had lied while ticking off his accomplishments
during a speech.

Four days later Feshbach called Pearson back and left
a second message. It was clear she had learned he was
a suppressive.

“Hi, Creed, this is Kathy Feshbach. Sunday morning …
I just heard that you were under some kind of ethics
cycle. So, you are not invited to our house today. I
am sure you understand. So, ah, thank you very much
for understanding. Please do not attend the event.
Thank you very much for understanding.”

* * *

As the community of Scientologists has grown to an
estimated 10,000 in the Tampa Bay area, so too has the
number of declared SPs increased, according to church
officials and former members.

Shaw said there are only about 40 SPs in the bay area.
Former Scientologists say the number of suppressive
people is much higher.

Thousands of SP declare files are kept at the church’s
administrative headquarters in California, said Astra
Woodcraft, who worked there for three years ending in

Now, she is in those files herself.

* * *

The Woodcrafts are a family divided. The mother, a son
and grandmother are Scientologists. The father and two
daughters left.

The two sides do not speak.

Raised with her brother and sister in Scientology,
Astra Woodcraft spent two years in Clearwater as a
teen, living in a church-owned motel on U.S. 19 and
serving as a Scientology cadet.

Her family later moved to Los Angeles and at 14 she
joined the Sea Org, the legion of church staffers who
dedicate their lives to church service. Woodcraft was
assigned to the ethics security team, which tried to
keep people from leaving Scientology.

One month after turning 15, she married a 22-year-old
fellow Sea Org member. A few years later, she traveled
to England to attend her grandmother’s funeral.
Enthralled with “the outside world,” she stayed on for
a time in England and decided to leave Scientology.

Her husband wrote her from Los Angeles: “What really
will happen if you decide not to come back and get
declared? I will have to disconnect from you, and so
will the rest of your family – your Mom, your Dad,
Grandma, Matt and Zoe. Or, you come back and
standardly handle the situation, with whatever
decision you have made.”

Woodcraft, pregnant, filed for divorce. She was 20.
She returned to the church in L.A. in April 1998 and
did her sec checks. It took a month. She signed a
document admitting to trying marijuana at age 13 and
once stealing a pair of pantyhose.

Then she left. Scientology hit her with a
“freeloader’s bill” for $80,000. Sea Org staffers get
Scientology courses and auditing for free. But leave,
and you are billed retroactively. She refused to pay.

Later, Woodcraft’s younger sister, then 15, also left
Scientology. She was in the Cadet Org, living with her
mother, then a church staffer in Clearwater. She
called her father, who had been declared an SP years
earlier. He picked her up at the Clearwater Library
and spirited her away.

Shaw provided the Times a letter from Astra
Woodcraft’s mother, Leslie Woodcraft.

“While not happy about it, I could have accepted her
(Astra’s) decision to leave church staff,” Leslie
Woodcraft wrote. “But what is very, very upsetting is
that she reverted to her old, dishonest ways.”

Astra became a “puppet of vested interests and her
‘story’ – lies and false accusations really,” Leslie
stated, likely made as a way to seek attention.

The letter ended, “Still, I have not given up hope
that one day Astra will realize that she made a
decision that, as final as it may appear to her now,
can be reverted.”

Astra says she left “not hating Scientology,” but the
church’s reaction left her wanting nothing to do with

“The hardest thing for me is explaining to my daughter
why she can’t see her dad,” who did not contest Astra
getting sole custody. “I don’t want him to see her. I
don’t want Scientology to touch her in any form.”

But she wishes she could speak to her brother and
mother and grandmother, all of whom remain

“I really love my mom and I miss her a lot,” Astra
said. “I would love for her to see my daughter.”

Happy 4th of July!

200+ years ago, the United States of America shook off
the suppression of English rule. The people named what
they wanted – freedom. They wanted freedom, they
demanded freedom, and they got freedom.

However, in today’s world we have a new kind of
suppression, much more subtle and insidious,

Psychiatric interests do not want you to live free.
Perhaps you are free of psych influence now and will
remain so, but can you stand by while millions are
denied that freedom?

In today’s New Orleans Times-Picayune, there is a LONG
article. Read it if you must but I’ll summarize it for
you in a few words, “Psychiatry and drug companies are
cashing in on Hurricane Katrina”. The story is all
about how Katrina’s victims are “stressed” and need
mental health treatment. You can translate that to
drugs, very expensive stays in psych hospitals and
ECT. Basically it’s an appeal for more money.

Write a letter to the editor. You can put almost
anything in the letter provided that you tell the
truth about psychiatry.

I suggest you point out that no medical tests exists
for these “disorders”, like post-traumatic stress
disorder, so that fraud will be rampant. I also
suggest that you point out there is no evidence that
treating people with drugs does any good in the long
run, and that the drugs themselves are KNOWN to cause

And here’s a good theme for a few of you – “Now is the
very wrong time to drug people out of consciousness,
awareness and ability. Right now they need to rebuild
their homes, businesses, and lives, not be turned into
disabled mental patient living on the dole”.

You can also point out that even on the first page,
there is a demonstration that the drugs don’t work.
Mr. Harrell can’t sleep and has to add his “tonic” of
alcohol, very dangerous to mix with psychiatric drugs.

Write whatever you want; be creative.

Here is the link to the article if you want to read
it. Warning, it’s 6 pages long. The first page is at
the bottom of this email.

Proposed drug center raises concern
Other Narconon treatment sites have been cited for

LEONA VALLEY – An organization with ties to the Church
of Scientology that wants to open a drug treatment
center in Bouquet Canyon was cited for dozens of
violations by state inspectors within the last five
years, according to documents.

The county Board of Supervisors on Tuesday will vote
on whether to allow Narconon International to open a
66-bed facility near Leona Valley.

Narconon runs four treatment facilities in the state.

At the Newport Beach facility, state inspectors found
in January 2003 that staff members administered
medication to residents without authorization and had
alcohol on the premises. In February 2003, state
inspectors found two staff members at Narconon’s
Watsonville facility went drinking with a graduating
resident from the program.

Clark Carr, the head of Narconon, said the two were
fired and his organization has corrected the other
problems and violations that have been found at
Narconon facilities.

“We completely agree with strict standards and
unannounced surprise inspections,” Carr said. “We’re
glad to have them.”

Another violation state Department of Alcohol and Drug
Programs inspectors found at Narconon facilities was
beds without mattress pads, including an inspection at
the Newport Beach facility in November 2004, that
found 24 beds without pads.

Carr said he was unsure why the pads might have been
missing, but he said that problem had been corrected
as well.

Narconon was created 40 years ago and uses the
writings of L. Ron Hubbard, late founder of the Church
of Scientology, to treat addicts. Instead of
administering drugs, the program puts addicts on a
regimen of vitamins, including niacin, and has them
“sweat out” toxins with time in the sauna.

“We’ve been doing it for decades in California and
throughout the United States and the world, and we
have a very good record,” Carr said.

Sheriff Lee Baca has expressed support for Narconon
going into the Bouquet Canyon site. Although the
sheriff said he has not visited a Narconon facility,
he has been briefed on the program and he liked what
he heard.

“This is America’s No. 1 health problem, illegal drug
use, and to a certain extent legal drug use, including
alcohol,” Baca said. “So I’m an advocate for any
program that can help people get away from drugs and
their addiction to drugs. That’s why I support it.”

But the Narconon approach to fighting drugs has been
questioned by outside experts. Narconon has a program
to educate schoolchildren about drugs, which the
California Department of Education evaluated last year
and found wasn’t based on science or medicine.

Jack O’Connell, state superintendent of public
instruction, asked that schools not use the Narconon
program, but Carr said the program is still taught at
schools at the request of on-site administrators.


The inaccurate information given to students included
that drugs burn up vitamins and nutrients, and that
small amounts of drugs are stored in fat and are
released at a later time, making the person want to
use the drug again, according to the education
department report.

“The materials I’ve seen in their brochures would
suggest to me that the treatment that they provide
certainly is not in line with current scientific
thinking about addiction,” said professor Richard
Rawson, associate director of Integrated Substance
Abuse Programs at the University of California, Los

“Some of the use of vitamins and saunas and all of
those things certainly may be good general health
practices, but they have nothing to do with the
effective treatment of addiction as far as any
literature has ever demonstrated.”

If the county Board of Supervisors approves the
Narconon facility for Bouquet Canyon, it would be the
largest Narconon facility in California.

The county Regional Planning Commission in March
approved the project, but Supervisor Michael D.
Antonovich called for the Board of Supervisors to hear
the matter after hearing concerns about the project.

Several residents in the rural area oppose the
project, citing safety concerns from addicts going in
and out. Residents also feel that Narconon has tried
to bully them to drop their opposition.

Ron and Sherry Howell, who live near the former
boarding school site that would be used for the
project, received a letter from an attorney for
Narconon in January telling them to stop attacking the
project or face legal consequences. They received the
letter after submitting their written opposition to
the project to the county Department of Regional
Planning, and after Sherry Howell had written a letter
to a local newspaper.

“It tells us that we’re dealing with somebody that
doesn’t care what they do to people to intimidate
them, to shut them up,” Ron Howell said.

Alice Benoit, who would be living near the facility,
also feels that Narconon has targeted opponents of the
project, including herself.

“They kind of like invade our Town Council meetings
and shout us down,” she said.

Hello Crew,
We’re going off TeenScreen for just one assignment but
we’ll be back.

The subject of this one is Scientology.

Write a letter to the editor and send it to

You’re not responding to any particular article but
there have been some unsavory letters lately.

Start your letter with something like:
-I thought I’d set the record straight on
-Let me tell you my experience with Scientology…
-There is a lot of false information about Scientology
being spread by people who don’t know firsthand. Let
me tell you how it is…
-Your letter writers got it wrong. Scientology is…

And then tell your experience with Scientology, some
win or a general opinion about it.

It should be a true story about how much Scientology
has helped you, especially the wins you have had in
helping others.
(“I was amazed and happy to find that the assist
technology helped this woman walk so much
better….or, I never thought I could be happy and
now…or, I was happy to hear my daughter say that she
would never
take drugs because she pledged to be a ‘Drug-Free
Marshal’….or, I always thought I couldn’t learn and
then learned the Study Technology and now…or, I’ve
been noticing lately that more and more people want
to know about Scientology as they have been hearing
such positive things about our community betterment
programs and how we are helping in the community…or,
I’m really glad my daughter is happy again after
she learned about the Study Technology that L. Ron
Hubbard devised to help others learn…)

The paper requests 200 words or less. If you just have
to go over that, go ahead but it will probably hurt
your chances of getting published.

Include your name, address, daytime and evening phone

And report compliance by email.

Thank you!

Forgot to put the article for you to read. In a way,
there was enough information in my write up and a half
dozen people already wrote without looking at the
article itself. That’s an interesting hatting point.
We know what the psych PR lines are. You don’t always
have to read the article, or the whole article, to
know what true data should be communicated.

Anyway, here you go. The link is right here and the
text is pasted at the bottom of this email:
