I tried to search for this and could find nothing posted.


Mr Guider says he was eventually punished for the incident in the edit suite by being sent to the Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF) in Dundas in suburban Sydney.

The Church of Scientology in the US disputes this, saying he went voluntarily to the RPF for "... long-term negligence in fulfilling his religious duties and his repeated violations of church scriptures".

The Church of Scientology says the RPF is a voluntary religious retreat. Defectors describe it as a punitive re-education camp.

"It's like prison, except it's worse - you don't have television, you don't have visitor rights, you can't read the newspaper, you can't read books, you can't listen to music," Mr Guider said.

Former Scientologists say those sent to the RPF are forced to wear black, do hard labour and eat basic meals like rice and beans.

They say they are not allowed to talk to others except those on the RPF and are not allowed to walk, having to run from one project to another.

Mr Guider says he did two-and-a-half years at the RPF in Dundas.

I am shocked that this kind of thing is going on so close to Sydney.

What will it take to have this cult shut down?

It can't be shut down, Free from religious persecution an all that (
at how they pick an choose who to persecute).. There's to many people with money involved in it for it to be shut down, even though there is daily protests outside their church here in San Jose, CA and elsewhere.

Lots of good info on this very evil cult that I was personally involved with for many years:
Operation Clambake

I'm not sure what I find more shocking.

The fact that this is happening and the government appear to be powerless to do anything about it or that it's being overlooked by the majority of ATS users?

Maybe I should have put Elenin or 911 in the title.

It will take a real alien fleet showing up at our doorstep, laughing at the absurdity of the scientologists beliefs.

It might also take some deep undercover work by the FBI or other police forces, but eventually these people will be shown the truth about how they've been duped.

I hope for humanity's sake it's the first bit.

The shield afforded to organizations which lay claim to being 'faith-based' is powerful; but not so much so that they can avoid justice.

It seems likely to me that just as was done here in the States, the "church" used surreptitious and Machiavellian means to acquire legitimacy by actually becoming closely involved with government... And since most civilized nations agree what one chooses to believe is one's own business, who will stop them, if they decide to use the color of government authority to facilitate their exploits? Few seem to have the courage.

Any citizens who dare organize an effort to respond to this particular community, will not have the protection of government, since they are directing their disaffection towards what has been successfully marketed as a religion. That makes the disaffected ones 'bigots' who are "against freedom of religion." Furthermore, those who 'fight' against the church, and are even marginally effective, will be subjected to the churches own 'defense' capabilities...

Sad, sad. It seems rather unclear how people would subject themselves to the treatment they do, all in the name of overcoming "body thetans" and "engrams".
