Hello , I am an ex Scientologist , this blog is primarily about that but I may address other topics as the mood hits me to . I was in Scientology for 25 years and spent about 10,000 hours using the indoctrination and thought reform method "study tech " . I also spent time on staff and met hundreds of Scientologists and did hundreds of the cult practices . Many were the "ethics cycles and OW writeups " that really are an attempt to suppress or remove a person's identity and replace it with a mental pseudo clone of Ron Hubbard . To make a fanatical slave for the cult .

I looked outside the cult for answers in about January 2014 and left the cult in about March of 2014 . While in about 99% of members have no idea of the truth .

We are told we are in a mental therapy or spiritual enhancement or religion or science for helping people unlock potential . Or any of several other fronts that all pretend kind and humanitarian goals .

The truth is Scientology is a terrorist mind control cult and this blog is my attempt to understand and expose that . And try to state as clearly as possible the tools that I have found helpful in dealing with this .

Scientology And The "Gays"

I recently heard Michelangelo Signorile on his radio show discuss the possibility that being around gay people can help others to be more understanding and less prejudiced. He had a hopeful outlook. I am very happy to consider all of Ron Hubbard's allegations against gay people to be demonstrated to be entirety false and pseudoscience designed to generate and use disgust to motivate Hubbard's followers.

It is a tremendous relief to know unequivocally that his claims have no merit and gay people are people and not perverts or degraded as he claimed. I in my twenty five years in Scientology had to resolve the conflict between the good people I met and Hubbard's claims. It was particularly troubling for me as a generally liberal person who has a very progressive wife with many gay friends. I just had to accept individuals as good and gay but had to do endless mental gymnastics to accept both Hubbard's infallible godlike authority AND the obvious good character of gay people I had met on an individual basis. 

It was almost maddening. But it inspired confusion and THAT is intended in Scientology, as Hubbard knew it would create cognitive dissonance and he could use that to control people. He used confusion and authority to induce hypnotic control. If a follower submits the dissonance is cast aside consciously. The victim denies it and enters a childlike state of submission in which Hubbard is the only thing that matters.

It's like being a young child and not understanding why a parent requires something but knowing they know best and you just need to do what they say and not understand why they say it. That's why the contradictions disappear: trance logic negates everything but the focus of the mind, the total absorption of attention, the single minded blind faith that Hubbard coveted in his slaves. Being confused by his contradictions is a great way to increase suggestibility and induce hypnosis. 

And when the victim avoids the unpleasant associations it is a way that Hubbard guides thought. By avoiding things that Hubbard was wrong about a victim supports him subtly and subconsciously.

To be thorough and fair I should have a small sampling of evidence to show the case that Hubbard both was anti-gay and that attitude is clearly integrated into Dianetics and Scientology doctrine.

Here are some selections of L. Ron Hubbard’s views. He lumps gays in with criminals and urges quarantine or disposal for all people below a certain level on his made-up “tone scale.”

Science of Survival, Book One, Chapt. 1:

“At 1.1 on the tone scale we enter the area of the most vicious reversal of the
second dynamic. Here we have promiscuity, perversion, sadism, and irregular practices.”

From Dianetics, the “modern science of mental heath”

“The sexual pervert (and by this term Dianetics, to be brief, includes any and all forms of deviation in dynamic two such as homosexuality, lesbianism, sexual sadism, etc., and all down the catalog of Ellis andKrafft-Ebing) is actually quite ill physically.”

Science of Survival, Book One, Chapt. 13:

“The only answers would seem to be the permanent quarantine of such persons from society to avoid the contagion of their insanities and the general turbulence which they bring to any order, thus forcing it lower on the scale, or processing such persons until they have attained a level on the tone scale which gives them value.”

Science of Survival, Book One, Chapt. 13:

“Such people should be taken from the society as rapidly as possible and uniformly institutionalized; for here is the level of the contagion of immorality, and the destruction of ethics.”

Science of Survival

There are only two answers for the handling of people from 2.0 down on the tone scale, neither one of which has anything to do with reasoning with them or listening to their justification of their acts. The first is to raise them on the tone scale by un-enturbulating some of their theta by any one of the three valid processes. The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow. Adders are safe bedmates compared to people on the lower bands of the tone scale.  Not all the beauty nor the handsomeness nor artificial social value nor property can atone for the vicious damage such people do to sane men and women.  The sudden and abrupt deletion of all individuals occupying the lower bands of the tone scale from the social order would result in an almost instant rise in the cultural tone and would interrupt the dwindling spiral into which any society may have entered.  It is not necessary to produce a world of clears in order to have a reasonable and worthwhile social order; it is only necessary to delete those individuals who range from 2.0 down, either by processing them enough to get their tone level above the 2.0 line — a task which, indeed, is not very great, since the amount of processing in many cases might be under fifty hours, although it might also in others be in excess of two hundred — or simply quarantining them from the society.  A Venezuelan dictator once decided to stop leprosy. He saw that most lepers in his country were also beggars.  By the simple expedient of collecting and destroying all the beggars in Venezuela an end was put to leprosy in that country.

Handbook for Preclears

Homosexuality comes from this manifestation and from the manifestation of life continuation for others. A boy whose mother is dominant will try to continue her life from any failure she has. A girl whose father is dominant will try to continue his life from any failure he has. The mother or the father were cause in the child’s eyes. The child elected himself successor to cause. Break this life continuum concept by running sympathy and grief for the dominant parent and then run off the desires to be an effect and their failures and the homosexual is rehabilitated. Homosexuality is about 1.1 on the tone scale. So is general promiscuity. Ron Hubbard

He made it quite clear that he considered homosexuality a perversion and all gay people as evil and perverted. He calls them 1.1 on his tone scale and says that this is covert hostility. He says that 1.1 is the level of the suppressive person and all the worst and most evil traits possible in a person are present in the suppressive person. 

It is quite clear that Scientology discriminates against gay people. They aren't allowed in the Sea Org or on staff. There are auditing questions that treat being gay as a crime and perversion. This is all well known by staff and Sea Org members and most public Scientologists too. 

I should also point out that David Miscavige himself is notorious for using anti-gay slurs. He has reportedly called Sea Org slaves "cocksuckers" and said YSCOHB and CICS to harass Scientology executives. They are abbreviations for you suck cocks on Hollywood Boulevard and counter intentioned cock suckers. He also is well known for calling his subordinates "faggots" and being notoriously vicious in his hatred of homosexuality.

Scientology is fundamentally anti-gay. It was intended to be by its founder, is clearly this way to all but the most uninformed and sheltered Scientologists and is a position passionately maintained by the current administration.

I hope all Scientologists who escape the cult also escape this hateful, cruel, prejudiced and downright evil mindset. I am certainly relieved to have myself.
