I recently had a conversation with a member of a significant human rights group. They research all sorts of hate groups. They considered declaring the cult a hate group but decided that psych-hatred doesn't meet their criteria since psychs freely chose their professions. There has to be some characteristic you can't change like skin color. I mentioned cult homophobia and told her the story of Allen Averay-Jones in Australia, outed by auditing as a teenager, and thereafter subjected to 7 - 10 hours a night for three weeks of intense interrogation and ex-gay reparative cult therapy. She perked up, and said they are very interested in ex-gay reparative therapy, and she would like to talk to gay exes about their experiences. The group will only act on testimony from the US so Allen would be excluded. If we can find about half a dozen gay exes in the US willing to share their experience then they would seriously consider declaring the cult a LGBT hate group. Wouldn't that be nice I think this is a worthy project, and we can approach it as compiling a document that is A Case Statement for Declaring the Church of Scientology an Anti-LGBT Hate Group. Besides the testimony of exes recounting their experiences of reparative therapy, we need to have documentation in detail of Scientology's auditing procedures for handling teh ghey. humanist in Manchester has courageously blown the whistle on OSAbot Sam Butler speaking a Parrs Wood Sixth Form's Spirituality Awareness Day today. We haven't heard anything from him, but over the weekend I pm'd him this question to ask Sam: Q: Mr. Butler, I understand that the Church of Scientology is opposed to homosexuality, lesbianism, bi-sexuality, and trans-genderism, which are conditions that Scientology's spiritual technology can remedy and turn people suffering from them into heterosexuals so they can become Clears and cross the Bridge to Total Spiritual Freedom. Could you please describe your church's spiritual therapy for this, how long it takes. and how much money in fixed donations for your church's spiritual services is required?Thank you. Sam Butler explains to a Manchester anon Scientology's John Travolta Rundown - its ex-gay reparative therapy technology.
