Daughter of Scientology Head in Australia Goes Public With Allegations of Abuse

The increasing wave of former Scientologists going public appears to be growing. The video below details the allegations of Scarlett Hanna, daughter of Vicki Dunstan, president of the Church of Scientology in Australia, and Mark Hanna, a former Asian/Pacific director of public affairs for the church.

Hanna offers more details of growing up as part of Cadet Org, the group leading to membership in Scientology’s elite unit, the Sea Org. She joins other defectors alleging that children are virtually cut off from their parents and treated as property of the Church — after signing a billion year contract.

Scientology denies the allegations, here.

  1. about time someone put a stop to this cult they get away with what they want and goverments and people in power sit back and do sweet fxxxx all about it.owe the goverment $10 and they will go to any length to get it back,smack your child on the behind expect a visit from DOCS,you can’t say how you see things cause you will be hauled in to court,branded a racist etc all because you call things how you see them.justice comes with a price tag make no mistake about it.people need to stand up and be counted or get trampeled into the dirt along with your freedom

  2. Q of S,

    I agree with all of that except letting the FSM do the books. It is well known that he’s the Sloppy Accountant of the Gods. But taxing churches? Long over due and perfectly fair if they insist on screwing with our political and legal system.

    “What differentiates a cult from a religion? Tax exemptions. I say tax ‘em all and let the FSM figure it out – and balance the federal budget at the same time.”

    BINGO!

  5. Mespo,

    That wobbling could be this one or the RCC or the American Episcopal Church as we know it. Who knows what cult to fail is next. Make the guy that was a Hitler Youth put his other Uniform back on.

  6. The Cadet Org and then the elite Sea Org?

    Elite??!!

    Are they hoping to rival the other elites like the Knights of Malta, Opus Dei, Moral Re-Armament, the Christian Reconstructionists, or the KKK?

    I belong to my neighborhood book club … may I pleeeease be an elite too?

  7. The connection?

    Scientology was born in the pages of the April 1959 issue of Astounding Science Fiction in a story by L. Ron Hubbard on “Dianetics.”

    So bad 1950 SF is now the everyday pseudo-science of Scientology.

    In the meantime, real science continues to amaze and educate us as it outruns the wildest imaginings of old-time SF.

    So enjoy that tape and imagine it as “2010: A Space Odyssey.”

  8. IMHO, all organized religion amounts to nothing short of being cults. I am curious though, how an obvious cult founded by a drugged out, ex-con, science fiction writer who was also an alleged pedophile can be classified as a serious religion.

    Confirms my belief that the only legitimate religion and the only church worthy of worship is the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
