There’s no question about it: the so-called Church of Scientology rips friends and families apart.
But Hubbard was not only a fantasist (as shown by both his most notorious science-fiction creation, Scientology, and the lies he told about his own accomplishments), but he was also a highly unethical person.
Small wonder then that there are countless stories that document the stark, disturbing reality of Scientology’s disconnection policy.
As Scientology-critic Tony Ortega says,
Disconnection is real. And it is used cynically by Scientology to keep its members inside a bubble. When will the larger public understand that this is at the heart of what Scientology is, and not some goofy set of outer-space beliefs that a few celebrities ascribe to?

The Disconnection Policy is one reason why Apologetics Index, Religion News Blog’s parent site, considers Scientology to be a hate group.
