Thursday, August 12th: Yours Truly posts LRH on Disconnection, presenting proof that disconnection is an LRH policy, not a DM policy.
Saturday, August 14th: Marty Rathbun posts Pimps, Prostitutes and Disconnection, defending disconnection as defined by LRH.
Coincidence? You be the judge.
Marty cites the “idiots running a campaign against me because I don’t choose to listen to their abusive, infantile comm[unication]” (I assume that last refers to all the comments we post that he censors). For the record, I’m not the only idiot running a campaign against Marty; there are others, and not just from the Church. My favorite is this blog – I have my problems with Marty, but this guy (an Independent Scientologist, apparently) frickin’ hates him. (I LOLd at this hilarious entry about the bird on Marty’s page.)
Is Marty starting to crack under the pressure? He has violated one LRH principle: “Don’t ever defend. Always attack.” (LRH, HCO PL 15 August 1960, DEPT OF GOVT AFFAIRS)
Regardless, I’d like to answer what Marty said about disconnection.
Marty is correct; sometimes deciding to cut someone off is a good idea. (Although his example of leaving a beaten, bloody prostitute because she told him to go away is a pretty piss-poor example. Why didn’t you call the police, Marty? What kind of a human being watches a man beating up a woman, starts to intervene, then wimps out and drives away? Oh, I know – one who has been brainwashed by LRH and allowed Scientology to replace humanity.)
Marty says, “You’d also be a fool by ignoring the real consequences of allowing a Suppressive to continue to make your life hell.”
A point that has merit… except for the use of the word “Suppressive.” LRH has several definitions of a suppressive person, including “one that actively seeks to suppress or damage a Scientologist or Scn [Scientology] by suppressive acts” (LRH, Technical Dictionary of Dianetics and Scientology).
Marty, if you’re reading this, that is the key. LRH defined an SP as an evil being, one intent on destruction of all things, and one who seeks to damage Scientology. Therefore, to a Scientologist – like you – anyone who seeks to discredit Scientology – like me – is positioned with the other definitions of an SP: One who is insane, bent on destruction, psychotic. In LRH’s words: “All characteristics classified as those of the ‘suppressive person’ are in fact those of an insane person” (HCOB 28 November 1970, PSYCHOSIS). In other words, only an insane person would oppose Scientology. That’s bullshit, but it’s what you believe.
David Miscavige doesn’t “force” disconnections any more than LRH did. All DM does is point to LRH policy: Handle or disconnect. Everyone has a choice, and those who disconnect are choosing to follow LRH policy, even when they know it’s wrong. Just like a beaten-down prostitute.
So in fact,the only ones “forcing” Scientologists to disconnect are the Scientologists themselves. Like you, leaving that poor woman to be her pimp’s punching bag.
I can’t believe you don’t see the irony in your prostitute story, Marty. You are totally LRH’s bitch.
But unlike you, Marty, I’m not content to simply get in my car and drive away and let the abuse continue. I want to see the abuse brought to a stop. I want you and your followers to see who the real pimp is.
I’m not doing this because I’m an idiot who is mad that you won’t listen to my infantile comm. I’m doing it because I’m an idiot who is free – truly free – and I want you to be free, too.
