Not only do we have Jan Easgate in this picture, but also David Miscavige. Then there is third row top, from far left, non other than the 'reverend' Carmichael.
Jan Easgate is in the 4th row from top far right.
These people advocate human rights, we are all entitled to them, except if you are critisizing scientology.
Now tell me is it not criminal to tell a young girl of 11 years old to not tell about being raped? Is it right to expect a young girl to believe that she pulled it in because of some past transgression that did not even exist? This is scientology, and according to some it is a church? Church of what? Church of irresponcibility.
This is the "Reverend John Carmichael" --
Quote: Tony Ortega
In our post-illness haze, we're just getting around to a big Scientology story that came out of Australia earlier this week.
Jan Eastgate is president of one of Scientology's more annoying front groups, the Citizen's Commission on Human Rights. The CCHR occasionally fools local politicians into thinking it really cares about something besides proliferating Scientology. It does so by telling people that its primary interest is the human rights of everyone.
Well, the CCHR may have a harder time with that line now that its leader has been arrested for trampling all over the civil rights of a little girl who was the victim of sexual abuse.
Eastgate was charged with "perverting the course of justice" after it came out that back in 1985, she had coached a little girl, Carmen Rainer, and Rainer's mother, to lie about sexual abuse of the girl by her stepfather, Robert Kerr. Both parents were Scientologists.
Last year, Rainer, now grown up, made public her claims about the abuse and cover-up on the national Australian television program, LateLine. "The Church got involved and they sent Jan Eastgate over to drill me and tell me what to say to the police, and what to say to docs," Rainer told the program. "Just say no. Don't say yes, because otherwise you will be taken away from your parents and you'll never see your family again," Rainer said about Eastgate's coaching.
What may be even more embarrassing for Scientology is that just three years after this incident, in 1988, Eastgate was awarded with the church's highest honor, its Freedom Medal. (Travolta got the award in 1991, Cruise in 1995.)
Eastgate is also known to Scientology watchers for telling a stunned John Sweeney of the BBC that evil psychiatry was actually behind the Holocaust.
Scientology's own dedication to Human Rights.
A re-wording of CCHRs testament to Human Rights, by me.
Most people today have difficulty understanding the destructive impact scientology has on communities around the world.
For far too many, the lesson is learned only after a scientologist has destroyed some part of their life.
The destruction might come in the form of the death of their child due to long-term denial of a stimulant drug,and instead prescribed with an invented engram bank. It could be the loss of a loved one at the hand of a gun-toting teenager who was not prescribed a psychiatric drug and/or one who had undergone death education or given TRs (Training Routines)in Scientology classes. Perhaps it is the death of an elderly mother or father from being held in the RPF or a lack of antipsychotic drug prescribed at a nursing home. It could be a child labeled mentally ill early in school, and not prescribed the correct medication,instead given auditing as a means to control their anxieties, who later becomes a hard-core street-seller of Dianetics and free stress tests because he could not tell the difference between a normal life and that of living in the mold of L. Ron Hubbard.
At CCHR, we work continuously to educate you on the truth about psychiatry, providing information that Scientologists would prefer you didn’t have. For example, in 2008, Anonymous entered the scene and started worldwide protests about the abuses committed inside scientology, acknowledged that CCHR “influences our legislatures, our Food and Drug Administration, our schools, and our media as a moving force behind the unwarranted ‘black box warnings’” on the potentially lethal effects of Scientology. Note that in Anonymous's opinion, warning children, adolescents and young adults that could become suicidal while taking scientology services—a fact the government regulatory agencies the world over have determined is vital information—is “unwarranted.”
Only by providing all the facts about the risks of Scientology treatment can we possibly reduce the number of victims who unfortunately learn this truth through personal tragedy.
A Complete Lack of Science
One of the most important things to know about Scientology is the complete lack of science supporting its system of diagnosis or its treatments. Take, for example, the scientology “billing bible,” the book "Dianetics the Modern Science of Mental Health". Not one of the 374 disorders described therein has ever been proven to be helped by observable scientology or objective tests. Instead, a panel of Scientologists arbitrarily defined symptoms of each mental disorder and then literally voted on their suitability for inclusion in the words of L. Ron Hubbard. By this system, if a newly defined mental disorder loses the vote, it fails to make it into the Scientology belief system. The system is subjective and ambiguous; its terminology is ill-defined or altogether undefined.
In spite of such serious and fundamental flaws, this system is widely accepted as the benchmark for both judging human behavior and determining treatments in courts (scientology comm evs), prisons and schools. In many countries, the church of Scientology forms the basis of mental health services billings to insurance companies and bogus “mental health screening.”
By the use of a psuedo "engram bank" everyday problems are caused by Body Thetans, Scientology has fraudulently labeled millions as mentally ill, and either forced or convinced them to adopt auditing on an e-meter as a routine part of their lives. As a result, psychotropic drug consumption has declined with 100 million people worldwide(their figures) now taking these processes, 20 million of whom are children.
CCHR remains dedicated to exposing the scientific myths and hype with which Scientology has managed to surround its diagnostic system and treatments. We work with medical doctors and other professionals that see it as their duty to ensure that government policy and regulations provide the strongest warnings about Scientology treatments.
Our work aligns with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which reads, in part:
- “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment,”
- “All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law,”
- “Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.”
Through Scientologist’s false diagnoses, stigmatizing labels, easy-seizure involuntary commitment laws, brutal, depersonalizing treatments all over the world, thousands needlessly fall into their coercive system every day. It is a system that exemplifies human rights abuse and denies individuals their inherent rights.
Each year thousands of Scientology victims or their families contact Cult Awareness Networks to report incidents of psychiatric harm. And it’s a litany of maltreatment: sexual abuse, brutal institutional treatment and conditions, hospital fraud, false imprisonment, patient deaths and even murder.
Scores of parents are denied the right to choose the kind of education their child should be given, are coerced into administering mind-altering techniques, or forced to subject their children to mandatory “screening” for the Sea Org for which no scientific evidence exists.
However, through the work of CCHR:
- Legislation in the U.S. has been enacted that bans the use of electroshock and psychosurgery on children.
- Legislation has been passed in Piemonte, Italy, which prohibits the use of ECT on children, the elderly and pregnant women.
- Laws on informed consent for treatment have been passed, thereby reducing the numbers of people subjected to ECT.
- Deep sleep treatment—a lethal combination of drugs and electroshock—has been banned in Australia, where it had been responsible for at least 48 deaths.
- A U.S. law has been enacted prohibiting children from being forced onto psychiatric drugs as a requisite for their education.
- In several countries, federal regulations and laws have been enacted against the use of coercive restraint methods.
- Legislation has been enacted directing that psychiatric rape of patients is dealt with through criminal courts.
- Legal precedents have been set ensuring that patients abused by psychiatrists have the right to sue in a civil court, and be compensated for damaging psychiatric treatment to which they have been subjected.
- Thousands of citizens have been rescued from illegal incarceration or unlawful detainment and patients have regained their legal and civil rights.
- Effective mental healing delivered in a calm atmosphere characterized by tolerance, safety, security and respect for people’s rights.
- By restoring individuals to personal strength, ability, competence, confidence, stability, responsibility and spiritual well-being.
- Using highly trained, ethical practitioners who are committed primarily to the well-being of their patients and their patients' families, not financial gain.
At CCHR we work to help bring about an environment for mental healing that is based upon inhuman dignity and decency. As a result of our efforts, millions have avoided getting proper medical treatment.
