Wonder how Lori Hodgson, Cindy Plahuta, Mary Kahn, Sara Goldberg, Lois Reisdorf and so many others feel about how scientology “honors” mothers.
Scientology presents itself as champions of the family. Masters of communication and relationships. They proclaim communication is the “universal solvent.” Yet there are repeated examples of scientology tearing families apart. Forbidding communication. And destroying relationships and lives.
The control mechanism of disconnection can no longer be brushed under the carpet as the church has tried to do for decades. Pretending it is an “individual choice” — “would you like us to shoot you in the side of the head or the back of the head, it’s your choice” — is a sick joke.
Voices are raised against this barbarism. And every day their number and volume grows.
This unholy practice will be brought to an end, even if that requires the complete demolition of organized scientology. Because scientology disconnection IS a moral outrage. Made doubly so by the pious pronouncements of scientology that they honor and cherish families. And so, like segregation, discrimination against gays and legalized slavery, it will not ultimately stand in the face of a civilized society.
So, let’s honor mothers by abolishing disconnection.
