XENU TV Reborn

August 3, 2009

Wise Beard ManI’m pleased to announce that my website has finally been revamped and awaiting your return.

Everything from the Wog Blog has been moved over to the site as well as my videos from both YouTube channels.  I’ve rebuilt it using WordPress, the same blogging software that has made posting here so damn easy.

From now on, expect to see all the new posts over there on my site.  Today I linked to Scientology’s Freedom Magazine attack on Rinder, Rathbun, the SP Times and anyone one else who dared call Miscavige Slappy.

Hope you like the site and I’ll see you over there.

Thanks for your support through the years.

More Speak Out

August 2, 2009

The St. Pete Times has another lengthy expose of David Miscavige’s brutal treatment of his underlings.

They are stepping forward — from Dallas and Denver, Portland, Las Vegas, Montana — talking about what happened, to them and their friends, during their years in the Church of Scientology.

Jackie Wolff wept as she recalled the chaotic night she was ordered to stand at a microphone in the mess hall and confess her “crimes” in front of 300 fellow workers, many jeering and heckling her.

Gary Morehead dredged up his recollection of Scientology leader David Miscavige punishing venerable church leaders by forcing them to live out of tents for days, wash with a garden hose and use an open latrine.

Steve Hall replayed his memory of a meeting when Miscavige grabbed the heads of two church executives and knocked them together. One came away with a bloody ear.

Mark Fisher remembered precisely what he told Miscavige after the punches stopped and Fisher touched his head, looked at his palm and saw blood.

These and other former Scientology staffers are talking now, inspired and emboldened by the raw revelations of four defectors from the church’s executive ranks who broke years of silence in stories published recently by the St. Petersburg Times.

Those behind-the-scenes accounts from Marty Rathbun and Mike Rinder, the highest officials ever to leave Scientology, were buttressed by detailed revelations of highly placed former managers Amy Scobee and Tom De Vocht.

Now their stories have prompted other former Scientology veterans to go public about physical and mental abuses they say they witnessed and endured.

Some want to support and defend the initial four, whom church representatives labeled as liars attempting a coup. Others say they feel more secure now that Rathbun, Rinder and the others are on the record with their unprecedented accounts of life on the inside.

But fear still prevents many defectors from talking. For every former church staffer willing to speak out, one or two more refused.

Those who talked confirm the earlier defectors’ stories of erratic, dehumanizing treatment and provide a deeper view into the controlling environment in which members of the religious order known as the Sea Org live and work.

A few days ago, Miscavige distributed a special Freedom Magazine issue smearing the four people who spoke out in the first St. pete Times articles.  He’d better crank out the next issue fast before the villagers chase him down with pitchforks and torches.

Slappy sees the end draw near.
