What does Scientology say about the raising of children?

L. Ron Hubbard has written a great deal about raising children. In Scientology, children are recognized as people who should be given all the respect and love granted adults.

Scientologists believe children should be encouraged to contribute to family life and not just be "seen and not heard" as the old saying goes. Children are spiritual beings, and as such they need to exchange with those around them in order to thrive and live productive, happy lives. For more information on raising children, the book Child Dianetics and the course "How to be a Successful Parent" are recommended reading.

Most children raised in good Scientology homes are above average in ability and quickly begin to understand how and why people act as they do. Life thus becomes a lot happier and safer for them.

And now for the truth

Everything you just read is a lie. Children raised by parents who have fallen into Scientology's clutches experience abuse and neglect as a matter of routine. There are many reasons for that child abuse yet among the worst reason is something the syndicate's spokesperson tried to lie his way around amove: Scientology's mad messiah L. Ron Hubbard told his followers that children are nothing but adults in little bodies and as such they shouldn't be treated as children.

Child abuse inside of Scientology is epidemic. It gets worse when one's parents sign on with the syndicate's "Sea Org." When that happens the children are put into a facility with other children where they're starved, worked until exhaustion, abused, and where there parents are rarely allowed to visit them. The crime syndicate even has a systematic child abuse campaign they call their "Cadet Org" which is as bad as you can imagine.

The authorities have a difficult time shutting down these abuses and putting the criminals in jail. While the policeman on the beat has to see the horror that Scientology children struggle with every day of their young lives, Judges are removed from the gritty reality and when detailed desriptions of what Scientology children are put through cross their desks, they don't give them the attention -- and the sentencing -- they deserve.

When I was in Clearwater, Florida in 1998 for the annual protest against the Scientology organization for its 1995 murder of Lisa McPherson, I met a battle-scarred police officer on the street and we started talking about Scientology's children. He told me about one of the appartment buildings the criminal enterprise uses to store its cast-off, uneducated children. This police officer told me that this building was the single most disgusting, filthy, degrading place of child abuse he had ever seen in all his years as a police officer.

I got to see just how bad it is for children in Scientology. I wrote up a protest report which describes much of what I saw. You should read that report yet in brief I saw children being forced to engage in slave labor, being kicked in the ass by their Scientology leaders to force them to run faster into and out of buildings.

Why can't the authorities do something about Scientology's rampant child abuse? That's a complicated question which has many answers. It can be summed up in one word, however: Funding; or actually the lack of Congressional funding. Lt. Ray Emmons of the Clearwater Police Department conducted a lengthy criminal investigation of the Scientology crime syndicate and developed an Investigative Summary (See also part two. In that Summary the overall reason why Scientology manages to survive today isn't because there's not enough evidence to put the ringleaders away and put a stop to the abuses, it's because Congressional funding would be needed to successfully dismantle the criminal organization.

And child sexual abuse? Scientology's epidemic with followers that sexually abuse children. (See Class 9 OT 5 Incestuous Pedophile for an example.)
