Why Scientology is a haven for sexual abusers - it's the way L. Ron Hubbard designed it - 2018-08-09
After yesterday's disturbing report about a convicted child molester being a featured performer at Scientology's exclusive "Maiden Voyage" celebrations, we received this sobering report from former Sea Org member and Scientology "technology" expert Sunny Pereira. We think it pairs pretty well with what we learned in yesterday's story.
I can tell stories from each of the decades that I was in Scientology about how sexual deviants were dealt with in the organization. In each decade — the 1970s to the 2000s — the stories would all be the same. And now stories similar to the ones I witnessed are coming out on Leah Remini's television series.
Why is this such a persistent problem in Scientology? It goes back to its core ideas. L. Ron Hubbard was very specific that only he could be the one to tell the world anything about Scientology — this was made clear in an important Scientology policy letter, "Keeping Scientology Working." And since his death, those ideas can't be altered. Taken as a whole, Hubbard's policies created a haven for sexual abusers.
