When Scientology's toxic policy of disconnection is forever: Saying goodbye to Angela Paris - 2018-07-03
You know that wrenching feeling in your guts that doesn't seem to go away, the grief in the pit of your stomach that just sits there, the tears that just keep flowing when you hear an emotional song or when you look back at the magic that a person that is now gone has given you in your life? The feeling that a herd of elephants are rampaging towards your heart to trample all over it? That is the feeling I have had since Saturday morning when I woke up to the shocking message that my mum, Angela Paris had died.
I don't know much about my mum's past before I met her. She didn't talk much about it. All I know is that she found Scientology after having had her heart broken by a guy. She joined the Sea Org in the 70s. She told me once that she was assigned to the Religious Technology Center (RTC, the entity that oversees Scientology) when Vicki Aznaran had been running it, and that she was taken out with the rest of RTC by David Miscavige. Those are the only details that she gave me. When I tried to find out more she told me it was confidential and that she could not talk about it.
