This is preposterous. The Church from the beginning has a bulletin
called KEEPING SCIENTOLOGY WORKING which explicitly states that
all Scientologists should do everything in their power to stamp
out incorrect technology and incorrect application of technology.
That of course refers to anything that is not Scientology Standard
You will NEVER hear the praises of EST, or Transactional Analysis,
or Primal Scream in Scientology, the last two being critical to
my still being alive.
It is inconceivable that anyone in the Church would ever admit
that any work ever done by anyone outside the Church was of any
use and should not be DISCOURAGED. In fact one of the strongest
principles there is in Scientology is NOT TO MIX PRACTICES. The
implication is that any practice at all that is not strict Standard
Scientology is squirrel and SUPPRESSIVE, born of evil intentions.
Further the thought that any independent group might be allowed
to actually test Scientology Technology in their own laboratories
or experiment with it to see if it can be improved is an anathema
to them and is preempted by the iron fisted hold the RTC has on
the copyrights of Scientology which includes forbidding anyone
to use it out side of the Church. Just as the medical profession
and the psychiatric profession refuse to allow anyone to practice
medicine (chronic drug addiction) or psychiatry (chronic drug
addiction) with out a license, the Church too refuses and has
the legal right to prohibit anyone from practicing Scientology
Technology out side of the Church.
The Church as spent MILLIONS to legally harass and stop others
from practicing Scientology out side of the Church, let alone
start their own groups and offshoots.
Now its fine to agree with all this, and maybe even it is true
that it should be this way, but then to come out and state that
this is not a 'ONE WAY' religion is complete balderdash and discredits
the hell out of you as an OT.
I was forbidden under threat of expulsion to continue with any
practice, mental or otherwise, that I might have still wanted
to practice from my earlier religions.
In fact I was forbidden to even practice SCIENTOLOGY in the absence
of strict control from my Case Supervisor and Auditor both of
whom were spiritual Neanderthals who were more interested in their
stats than they were in actually making me better. STATS and MONEY
were important to the org, not customer satisfaction.
They can all go to hell and stay there forever until I personally
come and dig them out of their deceits.
