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
July 26, 1999
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.
