Possibly Helpful Advice

Finding your way after leaving the cult of Scientology

Onrushing 2014 heralds the return of Declared SPs to the fold? Not!

I’ve already written about the racket of the IAS and how to evade their dodginess here and here and here and here. But they’re still at it.

We all know that 2014 is approaching fast.

That means that the “church” of Scientology Inc is obligated to leverage its 501(c)(3) tax status to get your “donations” in before the end of 2013.

This is apparently so important to the “church” that Declared SPs are getting promo soliciting “donations”.

Of course, since the IAS and the “church” are joined at the hip, an SP Declare from the “church” is an automatic ejection from the IAS. After all, the “church” can’t allow you to be in its membership organization if you’ve been disbarred from the church, can it?

Yet, times are getting so tight in the money flows of the “church” and the IAS that this holiday season, blackballed former parishioners received promo demanding “donations” that would guarantee the “freedoms” enjoyed by Scientologists in good standing.

The below are scans of IAS year-end “donation” solicitations that were sent to me by a friend who’s been DECLARED.

What’s wrong with these pictures?





















Don’t forget, if you make a “donation”, you have to sign a document saying you understand that you can’t get it back.

That’s why the Garcias are in federal court trying to get their money back.

The “church” is desperately fighting that battle because if the Garcias win, it will set a legal precedent that destroys the underpinnings of the “church’s” fraudulent criminal financial structure.

(More “church” irony: the Garcias are actually the ones fighting for your freedoms here. Don’t forget it.)

Possibly Helpful Advice of the Week

If you’re still in the “church”, stop giving money to the IAS.

Especially if you already have a Lifetime Membership.

There’s absolutely no practical, logical reason to give the church any money above and beyond that amount.

You should give whatever extra money you have to get yourself up the Bridge.

And don’t do it by making “advance payments”, either, since you could wake up one morning and find yourself declared simply to begin a years-long battle with a “church” that used the refund policies to obtain 501(c)(3) exemption, only to deny you a refund later.

Put your money in a bank, or certificates of deposit, or something that will earn interest.

That’s a “religious freedom” that the Knights Templar earned for us in the Middle Ages.

And it’s not one afforded you by the “church” of Scientology Inc.
