has a medical condition. In Scientology, this meant that she was
a potential trouble source (commonly referred to as "PTS").
In other words, they considered her illness was nothing more than
a manifestation of lack of personal ethics and she was treated as
a liabilty to the organization. Scientologists repeatedly tried
to shame her for having this medical condition. She discusses this
in two affidavits, the first
written in March of 2001 which gives an overiew and a second,
more detailed description in an affidavit written
in April of 2001 which is in pdf. format.
a series of six Internet postings, written in March and April of
2001 Tory tells what she knows about how Scientology's Office of
Special Affairs works:
addition to working with OSA for twenty years, Tory worked with
WISE, The Way to Happiness Foundation, Narconon, and other Scientology-based
front groups. She enjoys helping families involved in Scientology
and welcomes calls from kids, parents, adults, schools and businesses
about the sect and its front groups.
Scientology after thirty years wasn't easy for Tory but one person
who cared helped make the decision possible. In Tory's case, that
person was Andreas Heldal Lund, a critic of Scientology who lives
in Norway who runs the very informative website www.xenu.net.
Andreas has an extensive collection of stories and documentation
Tory on his site.
told us how she was doing eight months after leaving Scientology
in her April 2001 Internet post, "Out
for 8 months!"
feel free to e-mail Tory.
Bezazian is a star! We know you'll enjoy knowing her as much
as we have.
