  2. Is Scientology seriously saying that it does not discriminate against gay people?

    A response from the Church of Scientology

    The Church of Scientology have responded to today's segment with Bryan Seymour, whereby Scientology was described as 'homophobic'.

    The Morning Show on March 22, 2016, 12:46 pm

    ********

    The Church of Scientology opposes discrimination of any sort and we practice a policy of inclusion among our parishioners. As a minority group we understand what it is like to be discriminated against and persecuted. We are staunch defenders of human rights.

    The fundamental belief of Scientology is that each individual is an immortal spiritual being and all of their personality and individuality are part of that spiritual being. They are not the body they inhabit for their time on earth, be it male or female. It is just a shell which is discarded upon death. The spirit lives on in a different body, lifetime after lifetime, and can be in a female body one life and a male body the next. If one takes the principle that they have lived before and will live again, then one gains a different perspective on the nature of gender. The native individual – the spiritual being has no innate sexuality. It is something that is assumed for each life.

    Our purpose is to assist people to become more able and spiritually aware.

  3. "Homosexuality in the Church [of Scientology] is the lowest of the low." "You're treated like scum."

    Wanna hear some horrors reportedly endured by "life counselor" to celebrities involved in Scientology? Buckle up, because it's about to get real stomach-churning in here. A woman by the name of Nora Crest -- a former Scientologist -- did an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, where she talked about kissing another girl -- for which she was punished heartily -- by being pushed off into a hard labor program set to "right" her wrongs.

    'It was the most horrific time of my life," she says. "I was battered and bruised, pushed around and nearly died trying to leave the Church and all because I had the audacity to desire another woman."

    "Homosexuality in the Church is the lowest of the low," says Nora. "You're treated like scum."

    In 1996, Crest began working as a what's called a "Church recruiter" -- in Los Angeles -- so that she could become a "Word Clearer." Is this scary enough yet? Hang in there.

    She says that around that time, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman were divorcing. Crest says, "We were ordered never to speak of her and she was a bad person."

    Well. That explains that.

    She also opened up about purportedly working with John Travolta, saying, "I was Word Clearing John Travolta as he was having trouble with a specific policy that LRH had written."

    "I used an E-meter," she continued, "to guide him to words that he didn't understand. The meter helped me look for a reaction if they didn't understand a word. The needle would flicker if he didn't understand and I'd use a dictionary to help him and he'd have to repeat it until the needle flowed like a sweeping hand of a clock. He was very nice and apologized 20 times for helping him."

    Frightened as hell yet? Just you wait.

  5. A Horrifying Look Inside The Church Of Scientology’s Jail For Gays.

    Queerty: A Horrifying Look Inside The Church Of Scientology’s Jail For Gays

    This is absolutely horrifying.

    A former top female Scientologist, who worked with some of the Church’s biggest celebrities, including John Travolta, is opening up about the thee years — three years! — she was forced to endure Scientology “prison” all because she kissed another woman.

    In an exclusive new interview with Daily Mail, 39-year-old Nora Crest (pictured) speaks candidly about the ordeal.

    “It was the most horrific time of my life,” she says. “I was battered and bruised, pushed around and nearly died trying to leave the Church, and all because I had the audacity to desire another woman.”

    The cult’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard, believed homosexuality was an “illness” and ordered the Church to “cure” any homosexuals in their midst, which is exactly what officials tried doing to Crest.

    “I was brainwashed into believing I’d done wrong and had to live in horrific conditions for three years before I was finally allowed to leave,” she recalls.

    How the Scientology sect deal with other lovers

    KRISS RUDOLPH 26 March 2016 08:22

    She was a high-ranking Scientology functionary, worked with John Travolta and coaching the children of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, while the actor parted. Her career came to an abrupt end when she was caught as she kissed a woman. Then they spent three years in a prison of the sect. Opposite the Daily Mail reported Nora Crest now has the "most horrible time of my life" . Accordingly, it has been pushed around, beaten, humiliated, tortured - "just because I've dared me to lust after another woman".

    According to Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard homosexuality is a disease and needs to be healed. Something worth looser than homosexuals Missed the sect, says Nora. After being caught, as she kissed another woman, she was sent to a secret warehouse in Southern California. There she was very closely watched every day every minute of hundreds of people. When she went to the bathroom, she was accompanied by five people. She was allowed to speak only when she was spoken. They had to sleep with more than 30 women in a room where there were bedbugs and cockroaches. 80 hours a week, she had to work and had hardly breaks. Who worked too slowly, was tortured. "We were doused with ice water and you yelled at us to what we had for a scum." In these repulsive conditions, Crest, you think at some point that you've earned it and then you "a worthless piece of shit" is.

    She could free herself by drinking a bottle of bleach in despair and was hospitalized. Before she was released, she had to declare in writing that they would not speak ill of the Scientology sect. "I did not care," says Nora. "I just wanted to go home."

    Scientologist who worked with Tom Cruise condemned to horrific work camp over lesbian kiss

    Joseph Patrick McCormick

    2nd April 2016, 8:26 PM

    A former Scientologist, who worked with celebrities like Tom Cruise and John Travolta, has said she was put in “prison” for kissing a woman.

    Nora Crest spoke to the Daily Mail about her ordeal which lasted three years, and said it nearly killed her.

    The 39-year-old said: “It was the most horrific time of my life,” she says.

    “I was battered and bruised, pushed around and nearly died trying to leave the Church, and all because I had the audacity to desire another woman.”

    The founder of the Church of Scientology, L Ron Hubbard, had voiced his views that homosexuality was an “illness”.

    He also said those found to have same-sex attractions should be “cured”.

    During Crest’s time in the Church, she was subjected to attempts to “cure” her sexual orientation.

    “I was brainwashed into believing I’d done wrong and had to live in horrific conditions for three years before I was finally allowed to leave,” she said.

    The former Scientologist said she was sent to a secret work camp in Southern California, where she was made to endure hard labour, and was watched “every minute of every day” by “hundreds of people.”

    One day she tried to escape, but was pinned down and brutally restrained.

    “I was trying to get to the door and got five feet from it, but they were grabbing all parts of me and dragging me down. At one point, I had 13 people on my body and was pinned to the floor. I couldn’t move … I was being kicked and punched, my face was covered in blood … I was screaming.”

  10. Scientology's horrific treatment of its indoctrinated members including the illegal Scientology RPF internment in the case of Nora Crest and countless others over the years who show any hint of homosexuality has been going on by policy since the beginning under hate-filled cult leader L. Ron Hubbard.

    Thanks for speaking out against this criminal organization, Nora. I'm sorry you had to endure this brutal treatment, I admire and appreciate your courage, it's a big help to those deluded Scientologists still trapped in Hubbard's mindfuck.
