and some examples of its use

The late and Honorable Congressman Leo Ryan was murdered in Guyana on Nov. l8, l978. Before the House of Representatives in 1977, Ryan quotes the testimony of John G. Clark, Jr., M.D.from the Harvard Medical School, as it was sent to Ryan by longtime activist, Ida Camburn: "I will state that coercive persuasion and thought reform techniques are effectively practiced on naive, uninformed subjects with disastrous health consequences. I will try to give enough information to indicate my reasons for further inquiries as well as review of applicable legal processes."

Coercive persuasion is antithetical to the First Amendment. It contains aspects which could be interpreted as constituting the illegal acts of fraud, false imprisonment, coercion, undue influence, involuntary servitude, intentional infliction of emotional distress, outrageous conduct, and other tortuous acts.

At the Emmy's Southpark played during during the opening, and it was empowering to hear the crowd cheering for South Park!

After being banned in the UK and pulled from the rotation lists in the US due to pressure from Tom Cruise, himself a victim of Scientology's lies and deceptions, as I once was. South Park's "Trapped in the Closet" episode, The Scientology Episode, aired on Comedy Central on July 19th, you can view that segment online HERE and remember, when you see the overlay "this is what Scientologists Actually Believe"

- Here is the PROOF it is TRUE!

The once secret materials are the very same "secret scriptures" which Scientology's lawyers called "Advanced technology" that I (Arnaldo Lerma) was raided by Scientology and sued, in US Federal Court for posting to the net in 1995!..

Many of us have paid dearly to bring this information into the public eye, and thank you to all who have provided support over my 13 years spent working to expose Hubbard's Hitlerian Hubris called Scientology, and especially thank you to all those who went before me, such as Paulette Cooper, Richard Leiby, Gerry Armstrong and the late Lyle Stewart.

And despite South Park's not winning the Emmy, the clips of that show may be likely be aired!

Scientology did not "WORK" for tom cruise

Tom Cruise Canned by Paramount!

Now maybe this will provide for tom cruise the shock therapy necessary to make him wake up from the scientology trance

Oftimes a shock such as this wakes people up enough to leave scientology, and then they start really doing some research to find out what happened to them

and then comes the lawsuit. - I can easily explain his erratic behavior - HERE

In July 2006, I made a posting concerning Karen Black and the Church of Scientology. The information set forth in the posting was completely false.

The Military Industrial Complex is a phrase coined by President Eisenhower .This is the the realm of industrial manufacture of weapons, procurement, kickbacks, junkets, and self interest of its owners, those who profit from war versus two men who have been led to think that they are on opposite 'sides', sitting in foxholes, looking at each other across a no man's land, who both just want to get back to their wives, children....and that little plot of land they call their own and sit again under their liberty tree, be it an Elm, fig or palm.. - Continues HERE

Temporarily anoninizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!"

The duo signed the statement "Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants of the dark lord Xenu."

The courageous creators of South Park - Trey Parker and Matt Stone after the AP article about Isaac Hayes quitting South Park and their renaming and promotion of the segment's Monday night rebroadcast as

The Scientology Segment -

The Xenu Story in South Park was REAL! - Full Story HERE

In response to Isaac Hayes comments upon quitting, "South Park" co-creator Matt Stone responded sharply in an interview with The Associated Press Monday, saying,

"This is 100 percent having to do with his faith of Scientology... He has no problem ? and he's cashed plenty of checks ? with our show making fun of Christians."

"Stone told The AP he and co-creator Trey Parker "never heard a peep out of Isaac in any way until we did Scientology. He wants a different standard for religions other than his own, and to me, that is where intolerance and bigotry begin."(emphasis by arnie lerma, as I and many others have been the target of Scientology's harrasment and lawsuits)

Of course, L Ron Hubbard says that "There was no Christ" hear his words ( audio tape ) HERE so making fun of Christians is not a problem for Mr. Hayes.

Why does Scientology demonize Psychiatry? and Arnie Lerma, the master of this Web site?

So that current victims will not learn the fact that Dianetics is nothing more than a perverted version of the state of the art of psychiatric "Advanced Technology" in 1943 - (Reference: William Sargant Ph.D - Battle For the Mind)

Scientology, at its lower levels, is, similarly a refried and also perverted version of Jungian free association techniques that also, has been laced with Alestair Crowley's satanic invocations which strip you of your conscience, while you are being told you are on the bridge to "Total Freedom" by a man twice convicted of FRAUD who was a master stage hypnotist - L Ron Hubbard.

At Scientology's highest secret levels you are essentially stripped of any money you still have while being made physically ill and mentally addicted by long exposure to the E-meter's electrical effects and driven over the edge..

Scientology's Director of Special Affairs at SCientology in SanFrancisco said that: ?The police dept., the FBI and the court system are all suppressive, they are all a bunch of morons and they are down stats and can?t get real jobs." "The Police are a bunch of crooks and especially the FBI. The FBI is the number one terrorist group in the United States?

Tommy Gorman and his new wife woke up and left Scientology. This story was covered by the NY Post.

Newsweek - September 5, Reveals that Scientology claims of 8,000,000 million members is a LIE, and that Scientology's claim of being the fast growing religion is also a LIE. September 5 Newsweek covers religous belief in america, in their feature article, the us the information that astute readers of have known for two years or more, that in 2001 there were only 55,000 "scientologists' in the USA.

That number is going down at a rapid pace at this time, in my opinion, based on deprogramming current members and the volume of new contacts from leaving members who found out for themselves, that the data on this website is accurate.

It's appalling that he and other Scientologist actors and actresses are able to address governing bodies which make policy that affects all of us. I am appalled that the so-called "church" of Scientology continues to abuse and defraud innocent people. I am appalled that they create phony front groups which purport to tackle social problems, while all they really are is a recruitment arm for the "church." I am appalled that Scientology front groups such as Narconon, Criminon and Second Chance are even considered by state legislatures, as they only use these groups to spread Scientology and the dangerous Purification Rundown. However, the one thing I am most appalled and disgusted by are the Scientology Volunteer Ministers, who flock to tragedy in order to prey on vulnerable victims. 9-11 Jerusalem hospitals Breslan Tsunami California wildfires Columbine shooting As bad or worse than ambulance chasing lawyers, the VMs have been kicked out of several disaster areas, as they provide nothing but imaginary healing touches and copies of The Way to Happiness, a nice little booklet of Hubbardian homilies. They've moved in and taken over distribution of goods donated by others. They pose for nice PR pictures. They get in the way. They endanger rescue workers with their presence. Happily, some governments can see through their facade of "help" and eject them from disaster areas. They know it's just Scientology, trying to profit from tragedy. Appalling.

At an ever increasing rate, Scientologists seem to be waking up and realizing that they have been LIED TO, by the current substitute for L Ron Hubbard, who died with his blood full of the Anti-Psychotic medication called Vistaril, Recent long time members who have come forward have revealed that Scientology has been CONTRACTING, and SHRINKING, since 1986. The Scientology scam has been forced to seek out new rubes who have little exposure to the internet, in places like Mongolia!! Their Narconon division has been thrown out of California Schools.. Their Criminon division's "Faith Based" funding was vetoed by Governor Bush, In the next few days be sure to check back here for a major new series.

In the past I have used the analogy that Scientology would eventually collapse, as quickly and as spontaneously as the Berlin Wall .. However, recent data, being webbed at this time, discloses that the current apparition dba Scientology and all its Front Groups, are more aptly described as an over inflated balloon... being blown up bigger, and bigger... The analogy is apt, because balloons are filled with nothing but hot air... and further apt because scientology, in fact is based upon nothing, using the same promises as that organization that once signed its salutations as "88".

Stay tuned, the most exciting period in the rapidly disintegrating world of L Ron Hubbard is upon us...

Hating Crime is NOT a Hate Crime (Barbara Graham)

Current Scientologists should peruse Ex-member Robert Van Dam's pages if they have not already done so, BEFORE continuing to read mine - the following link to Creed Pearson's Doubt Formula is designed for members and ex-members of Scientology. There is considerable Scientology lingo. May I introduce, Creed Pearson:

The Wedding My Brother Never Saw
"Even today in the Sea Org, parents and children are often separated from each other. Sometimes even husbands and wives are separated as well. According to my brother, he was told when he joined the Sea Org, that he would be eating his meals with his children and would see them every weekend. This was not the case. In fact, he lived apart from his children in a separate location, and rarely saw them. His daughter, Leah, was married and he could not attend because he was in the "RPF". He never even knew she got married until I told him a year later."

Browne, the deputy commissioner for public information for the Police Department.

The detectives issued six people $50 summonses and ejected them from the Times Square station, Mr. Browne said." NY Times

TAKE THIS TEST - Sunday, March 6, 11:00AM

LA City Beat March 3rd 2005
You think Scientology isn't a cult?
What are you...brainwashed??

So believes Tory Christman, (Pictured above from Scientology's own publications) a 30-year member of L. Ron Hubbard's celebrity-filled church, until she "woke up" one day four years ago and she got the heck out. Now Christman spends her time educating people about what she perceives are the dangers of this organization, plus any others promising suspiciously sanctimonious answers to your ills.

She'll tell of her experiences this morning when she speaks at the Center for Inquiry - West in Hollywood. Security will be tight, however, so all you fanatics, hecklers, and other unruly folk best make other plans.

Tory received not one, but TWO standing ovations. We were told that was the first such response a speaker had gotten at these talks.

Mark Bunker was there to capture the event on video,

Secrets are the mortar binding bricks as lies together into prisons for the mind

The following words come from a publication called Pseudodoxia Epidemica, written by Sir Thomas Browne in 1646. In between paragraphs ridiculing urine therapy and astrology (both unfortunately still with us), he had this to say about "Saltimbancoes, Quacksalvers, and Charlatans":

For their Impostures are full of cruelty, and worse than any other; deluding not only unto pecuniary defraudations, but the irreparable deceit of death.

Scientology's "Religious Cloaking"
Scientology invoked religious trappings merely as an effort to avoid public and government scrutiny - merely as an effort to ("MAKE MORE MONEY" (c) L Ron Hubbard)

Scientology's plan to make money off WTC bombing--from an internal Scientology email boasting about disruption of Mental Health efforts:

"[W]e are trying to move in and knock the psychs [Psychiatrists] out of counseling to the grieving families and that could take another 100 plus people right now. Due to some brilliant maneuvering by some simply genius Sea Org Members we tied up the majority of the psychs who were attempting to get to families yesterday in Q&A, bullbait and wrangling. They have a hard time completing cycles of action and are pretty easy to disperse."
