    Response to Today Tonight from the Church of Scientology:

    SHANE KELSEY

    Shane was always treated with care and respect during his time with the Church. When Shane came to live with his mother, sent here by his father Adrian who had full custody, it was apparent that whilst under his father's guardianship, Shane's education suffered a setback when he was living in Mexico and he was at least two years behind in his education.

    This is detailed in a letter that Adrian Kelsey wrote to Shane's mother in 1996, a copy of which was just provided to the Church. When Shane came to his mother, his reading and writing were substandard and he had other personal problems. Shane was then home schooled and his literacy improved drastically and he undertook several programs to improve his study.

    When Shane did decide to leave the RPF, he simply walked out, with absolutely no barriers and caught a plane. There are no gates and the Church facilities are on a wide open property, highly visible from the street and anyone can leave and enter the property at any time. The Church has toured members of the Australian media through our premises as well as other officials (including the police). Shane simply left (as a grown adult) and other than his mother being in contact with him who was understandably concerned for his welfare and whereabouts, no Church staff member originated any communication to Shane after he left.

    He was not followed, visited, or called. He sent several emails to the Church a few months later and was assisted with his personal requests.

    Whilst Shane was on the RPF, he agreed that he would do the program and this included not watching TV or movies or reading novels. This was only for the set time of the program and this is not unlike other religious programs. Prior to his joining the RPF program, Shane read any novel, watched any movie, or whatever he chose. Shane had a short holiday with family mid the program and went to the movies and fishing as well as other activities.

    Proper meals are provided to all Church staff on the premises at numerous times in the day. There is ample food and a varied and nutritious menu.

    Other children who were brought up in the Sea Org have gone on to earn degrees with high literacy and competence exhibited.

    THE REHABILITATION PROJECT FORCE (RPF)

    The Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF) is a voluntary religious program of spiritual rehabilitation to provide a "second chance" to those who have failed to fulfill their ecclesiastical responsibilities as members of the Sea Organization, the religious order of the Church of Scientology. It represents a free religious commitment by the individual to a spiritual discipline. The word "force" in this context means a group of people acting together.

    The RPF is based upon one of oldest and most fundamental concepts in religion--a religious retreat in the form of a cloister focusing on intensive spiritual introspection and study and balanced by some form of physical labour. This practice is common to the religious orders of many other world religions in addition to Scientology including Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and the monastic orders of the Roman Catholic Church.

    The RPF was created during the 1970s at the request of Sea Organization members in order to be given a second chance. As with any religious program requiring high spiritual and ethical standards as well as dedicated service, some Sea Org members stumble in their effort to maintain such high standards and a few members commit serious breaches of ecclesiastical rules governing their conduct as a member of this order.

    In such a situation, the individual is given the choice of either leaving the Sea Organization or participating in a religious program designed to provide the individual with an opportunity to progress spiritually and remedy past shortcomings -- the Rehabilitation Project Force religious program.

    The program is done voluntarily for purposes of penance and amends. It consists of 5 hours scripture study and counselling per day and extroverting physical actions. The program is devoid of luxuries, to motivate the individual to improve himself and get through the program to once again be a capable and contributing member of the group. It is conducted in the Church facilities which contain grounds, gardens and the property is open to the street with free access to and from the property.

    Every Sea Organization member who does the RPF is only permitted to do so after reading all relevant Church policies, so they can give fully informed consent for their participation. It is a voluntary religious program of spiritual rehabilitation. This is expressed in the expertises of J. Gordon Melton, Professor of Religion at the University of California; Frank K. Flinn, Adjunct Professor of Religious Studies at Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri; Juha Pentikäinen, Chair of the Department of the Study of Religions, University of Helsinki, et al., who have studied the RPF and provide the true and scholarly information on this subject.

    There are many accounts from those who have undertaken the program, expressing the countless benefits they have experienced from doing so, and also expressing their gratitude that they were given the opportunity. People do leave the program without completing it and leave the religious order.

    Before participating in the RPF, any applicant for the program signs an "Acknowledgement of RPF Assignment and Election to Proceed" which states the following:

    "LASTLY, I FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND that I need not sign this Acknowledgement and Election to Proceed and I need not proceed to the introductory and preparatory stages of the RPF, as this entire religious atonement process is designed and intended to be totally voluntary, and I MAY NOW OR AT ANY TIME DURING MY PARTICIPATION IN THE RPF CHOOSE TO DECLINE TO PARTICIPATE AND TERMINATE MY MEMBERSHIP IN THE SEA ORGANIZATION."


Street view of address discussed on TV.  Worth a look.

                                       Bill Shorten's Response to Child Slavery

    Many of you may not be aware of this, but Bill Shorten is considered by many of his fellow parliamentarians and the media, to be a future Prime Minister. With Bryan Seymour's interview of Shane and Adrian et al, he has a challenge, a very real challenge, which could make or break him in his pursuit of his Prime Ministership.

    I suggest that each of us write to him demanding or requesting that he take positive and effective action with respect to this totally criminal scene. Pointing out to him that you will be advising his fellow parliamentarians of his progress or absence of it.

    If we do this well, really well, we could bring about the final collapse of the CofS in Australia.

    His contact details are as follows:



    The Hon Bill Shorten MP
    Title: Minister for Financial Services and Superannuation; Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations.
    Party: Australian Labor Party
    Parliament House Contact
    PO Box 6022
    House of Representatives
    Parliament House
    Canberra ACT 2600
    Tel: (02) 6277 7320
    Fax: (02) 6273 4115


    David.

                      Scientology on German TV


Last week, the ZDF (Second German TV channel) broadcast an episode of its crime investigation series "SOKO Leipzig", where the cult of Scientology was at the center of attention.
Compared to the movie "Until Nothing is Left", this TV-show made a rather unspectacular debut on German television's evening programme on 3rd of February 2012. Part of the reason for this I guess is that here Anon did not discover a secret filming location full with Scientology books.
This movie is much shorter being only about 45 minutes in length, much more fast-paced, and may appeal to those who found "Until nothing is Left" to be long-winded.

Since media attention like this plays a big part in our struggle against Scientology, the video is now on Youtube with English captions put to it.

You can access it via the playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL88674F7942334541&feature=view_all

but for sake of completeness I'll include all three videos here as well:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24jHcX_OuOw
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBAKXP9sTnc
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtH-EMUZ7R4

Enjoy!

If you don't see the english subtitles then you need to click on the button at the bottom right of the video nav bar and click on [CC] to turn on the closed captions.

Not my cup of tea, a bit cheesy, and there is little care for accuracy in the details. However, it is fiction, and it is scientology featuring in a TV drama as the baddies (again), which is a good thing. It's still interesting to watch.
