My mom is the auditor in the 'Reckless Ben' Scientology infiltration videos - 2020-01-25
In 2017, we told you the devastating disconnection story of Clarissa Adams, a woman who had grown up in Scientology and then was cut off by both of her parents when she decided to leave the church. She hasn't seen or spoken to her mother, Irmin Huber, since 2014, when Irmin cited a Scientology policy at her while they were both visiting Austria, where the family is originally from. Clarissa sent this account of what it was like to see her mother featured so prominently in the Reckless Ben videos, shot by a couple of young men who wore spy glasses into the Los Angeles Ideal Org several weeks ago.
Of all the people at PAC [the Pacific Area Command, Scientology's "Big Blue" headquarters in Los Angeles], it's a little wild that this video series features my mom as Ben's auditor. Seeing how intensely dedicated she remains is not surprising but makes me sad nonetheless.
It's tough to watch her as an auditor knowing she fully, 100 percent believes she's helping Ben. The idea that she was brainwashing him would appall her. Her entire goal in life is to help people. She loves everyone, unless you turn to the dark side of course, and she wants to help everyone she meets. Unfortunately for her (and all of us kids, really) she picked the wrong group to do that with.
