ARE THINGS BEING HIDDEN FROM YOU?
If you are reading this, you quite possibly are considering joining Scientology or you are "in" Scientology, but have come to the realization that there MUST be more to it. Guess what? You're right!
If you're in, you have experienced people you love and respect being declared SP (an enemy of Scientology). I know, as I'm now one of them, and I was a member in great standing for 30 years.
For those unfamiliar with this term, SP stands for "Suppressive Person." Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard was always fighting hidden "enemies" and once he decided they were "bad" (usually because they thought differently than he did, or disagreed with him or his policies) he would literally "declare" them SP. A declaration was officially written by top executives, put on a goldenrod-colored piece of paper and distributed throughout Scientology.
On this "SP declare" would be a list of the "crimes" this person had supposedly committed. Once you are declared SP, just to give you an idea of the extent of this, NO ONE within Scientology can or will speak with you, except for one person, the International Justice Chief. (Once I was declared, even this person refused to speak with me, which violates their own policy).
While "in," I was told of all the "bad" things various "SPs" had done. Once out, I have met most of them, and of course their own stories are dramatically different, and one quickly realizes the lies Scientology has told. My "SP declare" is filled with lies. Hubbard said re his supposed enemies, "If you cannot find bad things someone did, make them up."
Have things been hidden from you? The
best way to find out is to read the many websites, with the facts
and experiences on them. Also, there are videos at
http://www.xenutv.com where people who did most or
all of the Bridge are speaking out.
