Scientology rips friends and families apart

There’s no question about it: the so-called Church of Scientology rips friends and families apart.

The cult denies it, of course, but more and more stories like this one keep popping up.

The Daily News and the Daily Mail have picked up the story as well.

Scientology tries to re-interpret — for the general public at least — the ‘disconnection policy‘ written by its founder, L. Ron Hubbard.

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.

Witness his Dead Agenting and Fair Game policies, which the cult also tries to deny — but which have directly led to its hate- and harassment reputation.

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.
