Robert Dam and his Family's Journey through Scientology

Interesting video's filmed in Denmark, about Robert Dam's journey through scientology and how he got out after 30 years inside. Unfortunately it is in Danish without sub titles, but there are some interesting parts in English. Robert and Mike Rinder being followed. Marc Headley and Robert at Gold Base has an intense, dramatic interaction with the scientologist. Crazy! Worth watching, particularly part 3...

Part 1- Robert meets Kaja Ballo's Father, all in Danish.

Part 2 - Robert meets Anette Iren Johanson and the sea org come and collect Robert from his home and escort him to the Org (re-enactment)

Part 3- Scientology wants a confession. Robert meets Mike Rinder and Marc Headley. All the scientology books go into a dumpster

Meanwhile here in England in todays Times newspaper...

Sect leader advises defectors to commit suicide with arsenic

by Billy Kember and Alexi Mostrous

The leader of a hardline Christian sect which runs 34 schools in Britain has suggested that followers considering leaving the group should kill themselves with rat poison or arsenic.

Bruce Hales was meeting members of Exclusive Bretheren, also known as Plymouth Bretheren Christian Church, when he was asked how to help a man aged 25 who was thinking of leaving.

Mr. Hale's word is treated as gospel by the 45,000 members of the church worldwide.A leaked transcript of the meeting in Surrey in June obtained by The Times reveals the Australian saying that "having links with persons under discipline or opposed (former members who have left) was a poison"

He told a British member of the Bretheren who was attempting to convince the young man to stay that "the trouble with your fellow is he's got poisoned". Mr. Hales continued: "He might as well get a shot of - whats the best thing to kill you quickly...cyanide? No, not cyanide. Rems. Arsenic."

He discussed in detail the means of committing suicide, before going on to tell followers that he wasn't advocating suicide "in the slightest degree".

Members of the Bretheren, which former members have described as a cult, regard the rest of the world as evil and avoid socialising or eating with anyone who is not an adherent.

Members are prohibited from attending university or working for a non-Bretheren business. Anyone who breaks the rules is disciplined by "elders" and may be "withdrawn from", a sanction which often means that nobody in the sect, including family members, will ever speak to them again.

The group has charitable status in the UK, despite the regular finding that its practices broke up families. This status was upheld by the Charity Commision after the bretheren ran an extensive and aggressive lobbying campaign in 2012 and agreed to soften some policies.

A spokesmsn said that Mr. Hales comments, published in full in the White Book, which collects all of his public utterances and is a required purchase for every Bretheren household had been taken out of context.
