Ex-Scientologist story #370, Tommy Davis caught in a lie.

 

The subject of disconnection has always been an embarrassment to the cult of Scientology.   It has a very important function and that is that it serves to keep intact the insulation between members and the real world.  Once that protective coating is breached fact, truth and history can seep in.  And once they find the Internet it is usually all over.   In this story below former member Shane Clark had foresight enough to tape record a conversation with DM’s flunky, Tommy Davis. 

Village Voice: Tape proves Church of

Scientology has lied  about shunning

pariahs

The Village Voice has obtained an audiotape secretly recorded in December 2009 at a meeting between Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis and a man named Shane Clark. The purpose of the meeting: Clark was facing the prospect of being declared a “suppressive person” by the Church of Scientology, carrying with it the prospect of Clark being “disconnected” by his entire family, who are all Scientologists.Just a year earlier, in May, 2008, Davis had appeared on CNN and claimed that the policy of “disconnection” does not exist. But in the audiotape he speaks openly about it, saying at one point, “It is what works. It is what safeguards the church.”Since that meeting, Clark, 30, has indeed been “declared” by the church, and his family — his parents, his brother and his sister — have all disconnected from him, cutting him out of their lives entirely.

Clark’s crime? He was employed by a man named Marc Headley, a former Scientologist who defected in 2005 and subsequently became an outspoken critic of the organization.

In the recording, Davis makes it plain that unless Clark quits his job and disassociates himself from Headley, he will be declared a suppressive person, or “SP.” According to church doctrine, Scientologists in good standing are not to communicate with people who have been declared SPs. To indicate the seriousness of the situation, at the beginning of the meeting, Davis announces that he is going to tape it. “I was going to record this, our conversation. I didn’t know if you were aware of it. For both of our benefit,” Davis can be heard to say.

What Davis was not aware of, however, was that Clark was also taping the meeting.

Clark’s recording of the meeting was made available to the Voice some time ago by Headley, Clark’s friend and now former employer. Since then, we have authenticated it, transcribed it, and turned a large portion of it into short movies so that our readers can view the words as Tommy Davis speaks them.

Last week, the Voice made numerous phone calls, left voice mail messages, and e-mailed Tommy Davis and the Scientology media desk seeking comment on this recording. We received no reply.

Tommy Davis was once a fairly ubiquitous face for Scientology, appearing on a CNN special series about Scientology last year, and also on widely seen programs in the UK and Australia. The son of Scientologist actress Anne Archer, Davis rose to become Scientology’s chief spokesman following the defection of his predecessor, Mike Rinder, . . ,”

To hear Tommy’s lies and the rest of this story follow this link.  I should say that his mother, besides being an  actress and Scientology member, is also the founder of the Scientology front group , Artists for Human Rights.   As to whose rights she is talking about she does not say.

As of this date 12/7/11 Tommy has not been heard from for a while.  We look forward to his return. 

Just for the fun of it I am posting this picket from March of 2009.  All hail Xenu!!
