Ex-Scientologist story #328, Cult “psycho-terrorism” in Germany.

This is the story of Thomas Kling who got an SP declare because he went to the press after a failed attempt to get him to disconnect from somebody as per the orders of Scientology.  Anyone who does not follow orders well will not make a good Scientologist.

Contact seen as “crime”

Scientologist receives dubious letter /
Called “psycho-terrorism” by
Constitutional Security

Bremen, Germany
July 26, 1999
Weser Kurier

Bremen Geli von Allwoerden is not afraid. When the woman from Bremen  thinks about the letter which she received from two Scientology members not long  ago, though, she gets uneasy. That is because the former member of the  organization and her spouse, Thomas Kling, from the viewpoint of the  Scientologists, committed a “high crime” when they made contact with our  newspaper last May. According to Hamburg Constitutional Security, former members such as these are threatened with psycho-terrorism and libel from the side of  the Scientologists.

Monday, July 26, 1999

“All nonsense,” Gisela Hackenjos, Scientology press spokesperson, denied the  accusations. She said the woman from Bremen and her partner should finally let  the past go and leave the “Scientology Church” alone. She said the “high crime  report” which Geli von Allwoerden received from the Scientologists through the
mail was an “internal matter of the Scientology Church.” She stated that these  kind of reports are written on people who have “soiled” the writings and  technology of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. “High crime reports” were  alleged to have no effect on subject people like the pair from Bremen. Hackenjos  stated, “The von Allwoerden woman can throw it into the trash can.”

Security Checks with the “E-Meter”

Geli von Allwoerden was an active member of the Bremen Scientologists for  twelve years. When she dared depart the organization four years ago with her  partner Thomas Kling, her friends from the sect kept in touch with her. Her  acquaintances had to pay a high price for their friendship with the apostates,  reported Geli von Allwoerden. The men and women from the Bremen “Scientology  Mission” continued to be required to undergo so-called “security checks” at the  Villa on Osterdeich. The interrogations were carried out with the “E-meter,” a  form of lie detector. Presumably the organization was worried that the two  former members were cooperating with German Constitutional Security.

“At some point in time we got tired of this surveillance by the thought  police,” said Thomas Kling. In early summer of this year, Geli von Allwoerden  did something unthinkable for a former member: she marched directly to the  “Ethics Officer” in the Bremen “Mission” on Osterdeich and told the perplexed  woman that she finally wanted to be left alone, and to stop interrogating her  friends.

Overtaxed “Scientology Secret Service”

Just the opposite happened. Resigned, the couple finally turned to our newspaper and thereby committed, in the eyes of the Scientology teachings, a  “high crime.” According to a policy by L. Ron Hubbard which is still in force  today, people who publicly turn against Scientology are declared to be  “suppressive persons.” In the 1960s, Ron L. [sic] Hubbard wrote about such  people that they could be “lied to, sued, tricked or destroyed.” The sect press  spokesperson, irritated, countered with, “This policy has not been in effect for  20 years.”

Other ideas are expressed by the Hamburg Scientology Commissioner, Ursula  Caberta. In contrast to the Scientologists’ methods in the USA, German critics  do not have to fear physical violence. However, whispering campaigns and  harassment continue to be used to cause former members or journalists to be
silent. For this purpose, the Scientology organization utilizes its private  secret service, “OSA” (Office of Special Affairs). In view of the many former  members in northern Germany, however, Ursula Caberta is convinced that the OSA  has been overtaxed in their work.

According to information provided by the Hamburg Scientology specialist, the  Villa on Osterdeich has recently been put up for sale. The Hamburg  Scientologists are also said to be having massive problems. Presumably they will  shortly be served with a notice to vacate.

Ex-Scientologist story #327, Eva Kleinberg, Child Neglect in Scientology.

Rock slam!! Into the salad you go!!

Excerpts from ‘SCIENTOLOGY’S CHILDREN,” St. Petersburg Times, November 10-11, 1991

Eva Kleinberg moved from Germany to Clearwater with her 9-year-old son, Mark, in 1986. She had joined a group of Scientology staff members called the “Sea Org.”

Eva was told she would have two hours a day for family time. But with travel time from work, she said she actually had only one hour with her son. Because of the 12-hour workdays, she couldn’t always stay awake for the full hour.

“I would compromise with my son,” she said. After eating, she and her son would divide the remaining half-hour of their family time. “I would play a game with him for 15 minutes, and I would get to lay down for 15 minutes and sleep.”

While Eva worked, Mark cleaned up around the motel or played with friends.  About a year later, Eva and Mark left the church.  Asked what he thinks of Scientology, Mark, now 14, said, “I don’t think it’s
too good ’cause the people … they don’t get to spend any time with their family and it’s real expensive.”

Church spokesman Richard Haworth said staff Scientologists actually spend three or four hours a day with their children, which he said is more than the average family.

Eva Kleinberg said she lived in a one-bedroom motel unit with her 9-year-old son and another mother and child. She said she knew of a family of seven that lived in a single room. Home was the former Quality Inn, 16432 U.S. 19 N near Largo.

“When I came here (in 1986) it was such a disaster, she said.”

Michael Pilkenton said he used to live in a two-bedroom apartment with seven roommates, including a boy of about 10 whose parents were in California.

Pilkenton, 27, is a former staff Scientologist. He lived in Hacienda Gardens, a Scientology-owned apartment complex, in 1989.

Ex-Scientologist #336, Narconon Exposed as cult front group.

Mark Jones was the former head of Narconon for the USA until he quit Scientology.  He is interviewed in a three-part series in Turlsa that exposes Narconon as a front group for the cult.  Part three is of interest as it has Gabe Cazares telling his story.   Once again Scientology shows that it has the ability to look like Cro-Magnan heavies when it comes to PR.

Another update by the Village Voice Blog dated 9/14/12.

Ex-Scientologist story #325, Mustard and the RPF for Quentin Hubbard.

Rebecca Jessup, wife of Mike Goldstein while she was in Scientology saw a lot while in the cult, for Training and/or processing level:Class VIII, did to OT3 ‘in’, NOTs ‘out’ Org or location: NY org (’66-67), London Org (67-68), St Hill (67-69), ASHO (69) AOLA (1970), AOSHDK (1970-73), Apollo (1973-74), Denver org (’74-80?), Ft Harrison (~1980??) Time involved in the Church of Scientology:1966-1987. 

 While on the ship “Apollo” she saw how L. Ron Hubbard treated his son after a failed suicide attempt.  This is taken from the book “Bare Faced Messiah”  chapter 19:

“Doreen ran to the Commodore’s cabin and said ‘Quentin’s taken some pills.’   Hubbard did not need it spelled out. He told Doreen to fetch some mustard from  the galley and mixed it into a drink which he made Quentin gulp down. The boy  vomited repeatedly and was taken to the sick bay to recover. His father sent  down a message that as soon Quentin was well enough to leave the sick bay, he  was to be assigned to the RPF. Mary Sue, who had a reputation for protecting her  children against the excesses of the ship’s regime, was powerless to intervene.   She was supposed to be responsible for welfare on board – indeed, she had won a  special dispensation from the Commodore to allow married couples in the RPF to  spend one night together a week – but knew her husband was in a towering rage  over Quentin and there was nothing she could do.

Rebecca Goldstein was among the inmates of the RPF when Quentin arrived. ‘It  was real tough for him,’ she said. ‘He was very delicate and refined, not at all self-important, very unlike his father. He  had hardly any facial or body hair and it was very hard to say whether he had  started shaving. There were rumours that he’d attempted suicide before. He  cringed from his father, he was completely overwhelmed by him.”

If you have never read Russell Miller’s “Bare Faced Messiah” you don’t know what you are missing, he shows unrefuted evidence that Hubbard was a con man and a liar.  http://www.xenu.net/archive/books/bfm/bfmconte.htm

She had few kind words for David Miscavige, in an exit survey she says:

‘Disconnection as a condition no longer exists’ — LRH policy of about 1968 or so should be enforced. Freeloader bills should be cancelled. DM should be drawn and quartered — no, make that, he should be beached.   If disconnection were cancelled, I might hear from my brother and sister again. After all these years, I would have mixed feelings about that.
