Scientology: Abuse At The Top

Amy Scobee, OT VII, spent 25 years in the top ranks of Scientology.  In 2005, she left the church and wrote a tell-all about her experience called Scientology: Abuse at the Top, which came out earlier this year.  (In an attempt to avoid the wrath of Xenu, please consider the following gossip of unconfirmed veracity.)According to Scobee, naughty staff were sent to clean a self-descriptive place called “rats alley.”  Other punishments included chipping rust off old boilers in a basement, and keeping guard outside a room where a fellow Scientologist was kept isolated because “she’d gone crazy.”Grueling hours and ritual sleep deprivation resulted in one guy cutting his finger off with a table saw, another cutting open his leg with an angle grinder, and another woman falling off 20 foot scaffolding and shattering her pelvis. During her lengthy service, Scobee met all the big dawgs: Travolta, Kelly Preston, Kirstie Alley, Anne Archer, Nancy Cartwright, Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley, Juliette Lewis, Isaac Hayes, and Jenna ElfmanScobee said both Jenna and Tom wanted to join Sea OrgScobee bragged she talked Jenna out of joining and advised her to pursue acting instead.  Scobee got into some hot water by alleging Cruise was ineligible because of his history of recreational drug use (an allegation Cruise’s attorney denies).  Apparently, LRH was very touchy about LSD.As an antidote to all that drug use, the Scientologists sure are fond of niacin.  Scobee reported she took 5000 milligrams a day for months during a “detoxification program.”

On the gays: Scobee describes the Church of Scientology as “homophobic.”  Within the church, homosexuals are reportedly considered “aberrations in need of handling.”

Scobee allegedly overheard David Miscavige and other officials giggling like school girls over the auditing transcripts of (what is implied to be) Lisa Marie Presley (described as a female celebrity connected with Michael Jackson).  According to Scobee, many of auditing rooms were reportedly equipped with cameras and microphones for recording.  Will leaked audits be the new celebrity sex tape?
