Scientology's Hipocracy Highway

Scientology's Commuter Lane on the Human Trafficking Turnpike

Human Trafficking is a crime against humanity. It involves an act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring or receiving a person through a use of force, coercion or other means, for the purpose of exploiting them. Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. Every country in the world is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit or destination for victims.

In a recent PR stunt, the Church of Scientology has joined the UN's Blue Heart Campaign. Why do I use the word stunt?

Because at the same time, Anonymous also supports the same campaign, charging the abuse committed by the Church of Scientology management is the same they appear to rally against.

From NowPublic: "...The US government has recently been cracking down on the abuse of religious worker visas, which the Church of Scientology has been using to import people for work such as sales, guard duty, construction, gardening or sewer repair. Some of the manual labour takes place in Scientology's own correctional program called the Rehabilitation Project Force, where inmates are given the most filthy tasks and treated as sub-human. Even children are subject to it."

"...Staff members, and particularly 'Sea Org' members, sign odious and mostly unenforceable contracts; they are not aware that they are free to leave, and some are so isolated and conditioned that they are afraid of the outside world."

The following is a podcast by commentator 13Heathens on Scientology's claim to have joined the Blue Heart campaign against human trafficking, regardless of the fact that the cult is doing exactly what it's campaigning against.

To further demonstrate the hipocracy, an Anonymously created PSA borrowing from one of Scientology's own PSAs on Slavery.
