Blog: Disconnection -- Scientology's Nasty Secret - 2013-05-31
While Scientology spokespeople have routinely denied that "enforced disconnection exists", anyone who is familiar with the Corporate Church of Scientology knows only too well about disconnection. Like so much else in the Corporate Scientology empire, its an ugly truth to be hidden from the "wog" world through a game of carefully worded deception of the same order as Bill Clinton's infamous "I did not have sexual relations with that woman."
When you see a church spokespeople emphatically state "there is no policy of enforced disconnection" in Scientology, the language is carefully chosen. (You can see Tommy Davis doing even worse than that here though frankly, he is a pretty poor example of the art of careful wording, he set records for horrendous blunders in his short career that will never be surpassed).
But if pressed on the subject, the response is further dissembling in this wise: "those who disconnect CHOOSE to do so" followed by "everyone has a right not to communicate with someone who is harming them, like an abused woman has the right to leave her abusive spouse."
