  1. The Church of Scientology is guilty of "hate speech" against gay and lesbian people according to Scientology's' own definition of "hate speech."

    Indeed, Scientology teaches, preaches, disseminates and promotes such hate speech daily.

    The Church of Scientology has adopted the American Bar Association definition of "hate speech":

    As noted by Mike Rinder in his seminal essay "Scientology Homophobia" --

    https://www.mikerindersblog.org/scientology-homophobia/

    -- Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard says the following about homosexuality and lesbianism in his book Dianetics:

    "The sexual pervert (and by this term dianetics, to be brief, includes any and all forms of deviation in Dynamic II such as homosexuality, lesbianism, sexual sadism, etc. and all down the catalogue of Ellis and Krafft-Ebing) is actually quite ill physically. Perversion as an illness has so many manifestations that it must be spread through the entire gamut of classes from (1) to (5) above."

    Dianetics is referred to as "Book One" in Scientology. The book, including the passage quoted above, is currently sold and taught in Churches of Scientology throughout the United States, and indeed worldwide.

    Publicly stating that homosexuals and lesbians are perverts, and equating them with sexual sadists, certainly "offends, threatens, or insults [them] based on... sexual orientation" within the American Bar Association definition of "hate speech" adopted by Scientology.

    In order to fully understand what Scientology teaches about homosexuality, we must next note that in his book Handbook for Preclears Hubbard states that, "Homosexuality is about 1.1 on the tone scale."

    The threat against gays and lesbians is then made explicit in Hubbard's book Science of Survival. Here, Hubbard writes about people below 2.0 on the Scientology Tone Scale, including "1.1" homosexual "perverts":

    "There are only two answers for the handling of people from 2.0 down on the tone scale, neither one of which has anything to do with reasoning with them or listening to their justification of their acts. The first is to raise them on the tone scale by un-enturbulating some of their theta by any one of the three valid processes. The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow. Adders are safe bedmates compared to people on the lower bands of the tone scale. Not all the beauty nor the handsomeness nor artificial social value nor property can atone for the vicious damage such people do to sane men and women. The sudden and abrupt deletion of all individuals occupying the lower bands of the tone scale from the social order would result in an almost instant rise in the cultural tone and would interrupt the dwindling spiral into which any society may have entered. It is not necessary to produce a world of clears in order to have a reasonable and worthwhile social order; it is only necessary to delete those individuals who range from 2.0 down, either by processing them enough to get their tone level above the 2.0 line — a task which, indeed, is not very great, since the amount of processing in many cases might be under fifty hours, although it might also in others be in excess of two hundred — or simply quarantining them from the society. A Venezuelan dictator once decided to stop leprosy. He saw that most lepers in his country were also beggars. By the simple expedient of collecting and destroying all the beggars in Venezuela an end was put to leprosy in that country."

    Like Dianetics, Hubbard's book Science of Survival, including the passage quoted above, is sold and taught in Scientology churches today.

    Saying that "1.1" homosexual "perverts" must be either "handled" with Scientology processing or disposed of "quietly and without sorrow" is not only offensive and insulting, but is also an obvious threat based on sexual orientation within the definition of "hate speech" adopted by Scientology.

    Scientology's offensive statements, threats, and insults directed against gay and lesbian people do not end there. Homosexuality is a sin that must be confessed both in the Scientology Johannesburg Confessional:

    "Have you ever raped anyone?

    Have you ever been involved in an abortion?

    Have you assisted in any abortion?

    Have you ever committed adultery?

    Have you ever practised Homosexuality?

    Have you ever had intercourse with a member of your family?

    Have you ever been sexually unfaithful?

    Have you ever practised Sodomy?

    Have you ever consistently made a practice of sexual perversion?

    Have you ever slept with a member of a race of another colour?"

    -- and pursuant to the Scientology Standard Integrity List:

    "Have you ever raped anyone?

    Have you ever been involved in an abortion?

    Have you ever committed adultery?

    Have you ever practiced homosexuality?

    Have you ever had intercourse with a member of your family?

    Have you ever been sexually unfaithful?

    Have you ever made a practice of sexual perversion?"

    Telling gay and lesbian people that they must "confess" their sin of homosexuality, and equating homosexual behaviour with rape, adultery, and incest, also "offends, threatens, or insults [them] based on... sexual orientation" within the definition of "hate speech" adopted by Scientology.

    Likewise, the Model Session for Scientology Auditing (i.e., Pastoral Counseling) instructs:

    "To get the pc over any condition or aberration that he is agonizing to get rid of, find a terminal that adds up to it and run single confront on that terminal.

    Example: If the pc is sick, the process would be “What about a sick person could you confront?”

    If the person is homo, it’s “What about a homosexual could you confront?""

    The Church of Scientology's hate speech against gay and lesbian people is perhaps best explained in the video by ex-Scientologist Nora Crest:

    Why You Can't Be Gay In Scientology.




    There is, and can be, only one conclusion: The Church of Scientology is guilty of "hate speech" against gay and lesbian people according to Scientology's' own definition of "hate speech," and indeed teaches, preaches, disseminates and promotes such hate speech daily.
