Scientology continues its 'Fair Game' of Gerry Armstrong with court hearing today - 2020-10-26
Back in 2013 we dove into the incredible legal odyssey of Gerry Armstrong in a two-part series [part 1, part 2] with the help of Jon Atack and Gerry himself. It's nearly unbelievable what Scientology subjected Gerry to over the years in multiple lawsuits that to this day prevent him from coming back into the United States.
Gerry's crime, of course, was that while working in Scientology's Sea Org he had stumbled upon and helped preserve a trove of L. Ron Hubbard's original papers that documented Hubbard's life in minute detail going back to his childhood. A substantial portion of that trove eventually made its way into the hands of Hubbard biographers like Atack and Russell Miller and Lawrence Wright, and it forms the basis for much of what we know about Hubbard today.
Scientology will never forgive Gerry Armstrong for playing a part in getting out the truth about Hubbard's life, which undercuts the many myths and legends that Scientology and Hubbard himself had built up over the years.
