This is a comment about Scientology on Something I didn't know...
As xenubarb already mentioned, Amnesty International is currently investigating Scientology's Sea Organization for human trafficking, but the process started in the Southern Division Offices of AI in Atlanta, Georgia. Information was sent to the Southern Division by ex-Scientologists, non-Scientologists who had worked around Sea Org members and saw some of the abuses first hand, and by longtime critics of this cult.
They went over the information and found it very credible. They forwarded the info to their national offices in New York City where it was once again gone over with a fine tooth comb. The info was sent to AI-London Offices because the London offices have the most experience in investigating human trafficking cases.
Scientology has been operating a slave ring by culling poor people from third world countries. They are brought to the United States; their passports and visas are confiscated---which is against the law; they are put through a brainwashing technique that includes sleep deprivation, starvation, and long hours of manual labor; they are paid $45-75 a week with $75 being the top pay no matter how long you are in the Sea Org. Many stories of physical, mental, and sexual abuse were reported to AI.
When everything comes out about this cult, people will be shocked. There are many stories of what goes on in this cult. Many of the horror stories can be read on a website started by three young women who were raised in Scientology. If you google ex-scientology kids you will find their website. It's not for the faint of heart. out all of my blogs by googling my name, John Scott Ridgway
