Jenna & Dallas: $cn’s Epic Fail is Epic
Jenna has asked that the following message from her be forwarded everywhere possible. This is another example of Scientology making matters worse for themselves. And it’s even more evidence of just how much courage Jenna has:————————————————

So where do I begin…. I did an interview this week with ABC Nightline. They of course had to call the Church for comment which they did.

Last night at 11pm, while we were in bed, we got a call from Dallas’s father. He said he was 20 minutes away from our house and he was driving down from a meeting he had today and in the car with him were 2 Sea Org members from OSA Int and they were coming to talk to us at our house.

He said that they had come to talk to him but he insisted that we should be there and that they wanted to talk to us. So they just decided it was okay to drop in on us in the middle of the night in true Sea Org style. Continue reading

Portland, Oregon – March 11, 2008
— For Immediate Release —
Portland, OR resident Susan Lentsch is issuing a public statement on March 15 at the Scientology Headquarters Los Angeles, CA, calling on her daughter’s employer, the Church of Scientology, to permit her daughter, Katherine “Kate” Olson, to come home from Los Angeles to Portland to visit her family. Ms. Lentsch has seen Kate for only six days during the past 15 years and reports that the Church of Scientology has forbidden Kate to leave the facility where she both works and is housed in order to visit family.

“I only hit you because I love you! I’m sorry baby; come back. I won’t hurt you anymore. I promise. Come on, baby.” Yes, those are the words you might hear Cult of Scientology president David Miscaviage (DM) say if you happened to be his bayotch of the month. Or if your name is Jeff Hawkins.

Hawkins, a former Scientology cult member, who worked on graphic design and advertising for the cult (including some of the D:MSMH advertisements with the volcanoes) speaks on Tom Smith’s WXYB show, The Edge.

Among other things, Jeff adds his name to the growing list of defectors who have personally observed DM box the rosy ears of upper-level Scns. Among other things, Jeff relates:

“He never liked me. …He’s a very intense forceful commanding person. His public persona…he’s very intense…he has a certain kind of charisma…when you’re dealing with him…He is very intense and forceful and he actually rules the place through threats and fear and intimidation. And he loves to intimidate people and put them down. Continue reading

That’s right, Amnesty International–or at least their Southern US Division–wants to hear from ex-Scientology kids about their experiences growing up in the Xenu Cult. They have asked for email-only information, but understand that many ESKs may wish to remain anonymous, and as such are accepting unsigned emails. In other words, just set up an anonymous gmail/hotmail/yahoomail account, and away you go. Continue reading
