Scientology attempts to position itself as defenders of Human Rights. They put out a constant flow of propaganda intended to create that image through their front groups, photo ops, slickly produced videos and booklet handouts. They try as often as possible to hitch their PR wagon to legitimate organizations and individuals as they are doing in this event. I wonder if Harry Cohen, Hillsborough County Commissioner has any idea what he is endorsing? Or Jeannette Matta or Rainey Nave for that matter….
And you have to question whether the Children’s Board Board members have any idea this is going on?
The truth about scientology’s human rights record is something none of these people would want to be associated with. They are being duped.
Scientology is engaged in a systematic campaign of destroying human rights. This is not a complete list, but it is an accurate one:
Scientology Sea Org members are victims of human trafficking. Many of them, right there in Tampa Bay, are brought in from Latin American or Eastern European nations with promises of a home and a job. They come in on visas the church obtains for them, often calling them “religious workers,” hand over their passports, are paid $50 a week for 16 hour a day indentured servant style labor (doing “religious work” housekeeping or gardening), have no access to news or information outside the scientology bubble, and have their communication monitored. They have no way of getting home.
Scientology protects child abusers and sexual predators by refusing to report them to law enforcement when they become aware of their crimes, and then covering up evidence and hiding witnesses to avoid “PR flaps.”
Scientology believes they have a duty to destroy their “enemies” — anyone who says things they don’t like or exposes their abuses. This is “scripture” of scientology. Rather than protecting freedom of speech, they actively seek to crush people for speaking out if the topic of their speech is the abuses of scientology.
Scientology causes the destruction of families with their policy of Disconnection.
People often ask what they can do to curtail the abuses of scientology.
Here is something anyone can do. Reach out to these people who are inadvertently supporting scientology and provide them with the truth.
