Blog: Ten Things that Really Piss Off David Miscavige & Scientology - 2020-02-20
1. Publicly departing Scientology by announcing one's departure to other Scientologists, the media, family, friends, etc. Hubbard wanted people to disappear without a trace or a whisper when they left Scientology. Scientology seeks to accomplish this by having people "route out" and sign various legal documents in which they, among other things, agree not to publicly disparage Scientology, its leaders, or to ever discuss any internal information of which they have personal knowledge. Departing Scientologists, particularly Sea Org members, are often asked to sign bonds in which they agree to pay amounts ranging from $25,000 to $1,000,000 (or more) if they violate these gag agreements.
2. Asking for a repayment of unused monies on account. Money works like this in Scientology: Money goes in and never comes out. Scientology steals money when it refuses to give back monies on account for undelivered services. Scientology does so by calling money paid for future services "donations." It then makes Scientologists sign a contract stating that the Church has no obligation to return donations. This is legal theft under the color of religion. Here is an example of letter written by Scientology in which it refuses to give back money based on a Catch-22: This person is a declared SP. As such, he is not allowed to set foot onto any Scientology buildings. However, the form required to request a return of monies must be completed on Scientology's premises:
3. Scientologists who refuse to "handle or disconnect" from family and friends that are antagonistic to Scientology. Such people are deemed Potential Trouble Sources (PTS). Hubbard warned that Scientologists that are PTS can cause all sorts of trouble:The Snow White raids on Scientology in 1977 were the largest FBI raids in US history. Hubbard never explained who in Scientology went so PTS that the FBI raided Scientology. The chief suspect seems to be Jimmy Mulligan who was Mary Sue Hubbard's assistant in the Guardian's Office. He was eyeballs-deep in Snow White and yet was never indicted. Why didn't Mary Sue Hubbard or anyone else in the GO spot Jimmy Mulligan as being PTS?
