Scientology's Disconnection Policy Tears Families Apart

Pat Harney, spokesperson for the Church of Scientology, claims "The Church has no policy of disconnecting members from their family"

However, Rev. Gerard Renna of the Church of Scientology in Boston has a different opinion.

BostonNOW asks:
"What can you say about Anonymous' allegations that the Church of Scientology "disconnects" its members from opposing family and friends?"

Rev. Gerard Renna of the Church of Scientology in Boston responds:
"The only reaction is, you have 1,000 church members. Or say 10,000 members. Our church has an open door policy.

"We know of 2.5 percent of these individuals who will have harmful intent to others.

"They will be asked to leave, excommunicated. There is a certain percent in any organization, any religion - even an ex-employee of BostonNOW. It's just a human way of life. It's just human nature that you're going to have people that have to be destructive. They only seek to harm and impede the forward policy of Scientology. They do not want to have the ethical codes to which religion subscribes. They just don't want to be ethical. They try to tear down ethical structure. You try to bring harmony to the group and sometimes these individuals - they actually take themselves out.

"Sometimes when you help a person a lot they ... separate themselves because of the harmful acts they do. No one looks at the fact these people who are expelled, they take themselves out. With anyone like that, you have criticism that results."

In other words, the Church of Scientology considers 2.5% of Scientologists (or any group of people) to be "suppressive persons" - people who should be ignored and abandoned.

I strongly disagree with such a callous and arbitrary policy.

Scientology is hurting families with their harmful policy of Disconnection.
