Ex-Scientologist story #74, Driven crazy by Scientology.

No, No, don't put me in the salad!

 

Usually it takes about a half a million dollars and some years of study to reach the upper level courses that teach alien possession.  But this guy got there on his own.  This story is from the Clearwater Sun, August 25, 1981.

“A downtown Clearwater businessman who last year joined the Church of Scientology was committed to a Mental hospital Monday after a psychiatrist testified that Scientology apparently contributed to the man’s insanity. Francis G. Diamond, 45, a successful antique dealer before his breakdown, told Circuit Judge William Walker that other Scientologists’ “thetans,” or spirits, had invaded his body during counseling sessions and now control him.”It’s not something out of Star Trek-it happens,” insisted Diamond, who brought a book by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard to corroborate his defense.The book states that “Operating thetans” – advanced – level Scientologists can leave their bodies and “control or operate thought, life, matter, energy, space and time.”The commitment hearing was at Horizon Hospital, a psychiatric facility on U.S. 19 where Diamond was taken by police after friends grew concerned about his behavior.”. . .”Such hearings are generally closed to the press, but Diamond, requested that a Clearwater Sun reporter attend, and the judge agreed, “I want people to know what Scientology did to me,” Diamond said in a weekend interview in a locked ward at the hospital. Diamond contends he is neither irrational and nor violent, but says the “Operating thetans” who control him are unpredictable. He blames them for his decisions to close his business, liquidate his inventory, sell land he owned in Pennsylvania, move out of his apartment and live in a car.   . . .Scientology spokesman Wolfe ridiculed Diamond’s statements, saying “he’s crazy.” Wolfe said the E-meter does not produce an electrical charge. Wolfe also said that although Scientologists can command their thetans to leave their bodies, “it’s nonsense” that a thetan will enter another person’s body.”  Dedicated Scieno watchers will recognise Milt Wolfe as a Guardian’s Office agent which is their department of criminality and harassment of critics and unruly Scientologists.  His boss, Mary Sue Hubbard, did seven years in federal prison for ordering the burglary of the FBI among other things.  To read the rest of this story go here:  http://www.lermanet.com/scientologynews/clearwatersun/cwsun-0825-1981.htm
