Suppressive Person {SP}: a person opposed to the activity of Scientology
20% Of society is composed of SP’s.
2½% Of SP’s are dangerous {such as Adolf Hitler}

Potential Trouble Source {PTS}: a person in league with an SP
80% Of society is composed of PTS people

Degraded Being {DB}: person that is “normally” PTS in life and only listens to and believes SP’s. 1 In every 18 people are DB’s.

PTS means one’s actions are fueled by an SP and SP’s are out to get Scientology. This can manifest itself by a Scientologist becoming ill during auditing giving birth to the idea auditing does not work or seeking other solutions to the problems one is being trained and audited to solve and possibly believing those solutions will work better than Scientology.

There are 3 types of PTS people determined by the manner in which they are connected to an SP:

Type I: Immediate {spouse, child, parent, in-law, sister etc.}
Type II: 
Remote {co-worker, ex-spouse, store clerk, landlord etc.}
Type III: 
Unavailable {the PTS person is a mental institution type case}

Within those 3 categories are 10 sub-categories from Type A to J that further define what to expect from the person in the way of manifestations {such as someone that will most likely wind up wanting to sue the church, or someone that will most likely call the police on an auditor, or someone that will refer people to the church that cannot be helped just to help the person later get a refund etc., etc., etc.}.

SP’s Have anti-social characteristics that distinguish them from social personality types who have the exact opposite in attributes an SP does. Scientologists are trained and counseled to identify both SP’s and PTS people to enable them to better handle either such type in life. A church intelligence department compiles lists of SP’s and their organizations and a church Ethics Officer uses these compiled lists as a guide in handling troubled Scientologists.

A Psychiatrist is considered an SP by the church in any capacity and any person that receives psychiatric treatment is automatically declared PTS.



Anti Psychiatry Rally Of Scientologists









     If an ethics officer determines that your 14 year old son is an SP and that you are PTS to him, the options are to either bring that child to an understanding about Scientology so that any antagonism ceases and/or disconnect from the child and/or be expelled from the church. This means that in Scientology one must literally do what the church says, even if the church says one must throw one’s 14 year old son out into the street because he is believed to be evil. As difficult to believe as that may sound is as true as it is.

A Scientologist that is declared an SP {expelled} will have this expulsion placed in writing about them and then sent to Scientologists anywhere in the world by the church, determined by who it is the church feels will most be able to benefit the church by having this information to act on. Following an SP declare no one in the church is any longer allowed to associate or communicate in any way with the declared person {personally, professionally, sexually, socially etc.}. This is called disconnection and it is a practice the church ruthlessly engages in. Any Scientologist found in violation of this practice will eventually find themselves in the same situation as the declared person if the matter is left unaddressed.

 1. A declared SP’s children are enrolled in a Scientology private school?
         The children are expelled from the school and any contract with the SP and/or regarding the SP’s children becomes non-binding.

 2. A declared SP’s employer is a Scientologist?
The SP’s employment is terminated and a copy of the declare is sent to other potential professional contacts the person may appeal to for help.

3. A declared SP has money left in their church account?
The church confiscates any money without notifying the declared person of this action, without any regard of any legal, moral and ethical right the declared person may still have to the money.

4. A declared SP was a Class VI auditor and OT VIII at the time of their declare?
        All of their certificates for training and auditing they have received are cancelled. Meaning, this person is now viewed as an untrained raw public person.

Reversing an SP declare is a strenuous non-rewarding activity involving a series of steps called “Steps A to E” that a declared person must complete in order to regain any kind of standing in the church again once such is lost.

A declared SP is allowed contact with only one person in the church called the International Ethics and Justice Chief {or IEJC}. SP’s Are viewed by the church as dangerously insane people. Contact with the IEJC is carried out through a 3rd party person in the church {a liaison} a declared person must go through in order to have their communication heard and reverse their SP declare.

When and if an SP declare is reversed, the former SP must retrain and be re-audited at their own expense a second time all the way up to the training and auditing level they were at when they were declared in order to continue on to what might have been their next level or action. Potentially it can cost a person $1,000,000.00 just to be declared and then get into good standing in the church again.

Disconnection is in accordance with L. Ron Hubbard’s written scriptures regarding the handling of SP’s.






     Scientologists sign an agreement with the church that they will be turned over to the church for help in the event they ever develop symptoms of any kind of behavior a psychiatrist would normally address. For example, if a Scientologist is placed in a hospital emergency room psychiatric observation ward for emotional trauma related to witnessing a crime, a Scientologist will come when and if notified and bring the person to the church for help instead. This practice, although seemingly warm and caring, is not guaranteed medically sound.

     Scientologists use a form of auditing called the Introspection Rundown to restore the behavior of people that act in a psychologically impaired manner that is always attributed by Scientologists to be brought on by an affiliation with an SP, hence the church’s hard line attitude toward SP’s. The PTS person is locked in a room alone outside of which stand a security guard and a specially trained auditor in 24 hour attendance. The auditor passes a note under the door to the person with a question written on it and waits for any form of a response. Any kind of a response is handled by the auditor with a new note under the door with a new written response on it to the person. No outside help of any kind may be summoned or any other procedure used for the person other than this auditing.

The rundown takes at most 72 hours to complete and is continued until the C/S in charge decides the person is OK to be let out. By OK to be let out means the person has stopped screaming on the top of their lungs at everyone or exhibiting some other form of what the church considers to be psychotic type behavior that would normally attract the services of a psychiatrist. Upon release the person is closely watched for a time.

In December 1995, a Florida woman named Lisa McPherson died on the 17th day of her Introspection Rundown auditing.

     Public people that disagree with Scientology and are not members of the church cannot be declared SP’s or expelled so, the Guardian Office {GO} was formed by L. Ron Hubbard in 1966, as a private branch of the church to address bad publicity. L. Ron Hubbard’s wife Mary Sue Hubbard was appointed head of the GO with the purpose to:

  “Document and handle any people critical of Scientology and any bad publicrelations events such individuals cause.”



Mary Sue Hubbard



MARY SUE HUBBARD {1931-2002}



     In 1979, Mary Sue Hubbard and at least 8 other GO staff were sent to federal prisons after being found guilty of domestic espionage against the Unites States government. Mrs. Hubbard along with other members of the church acquired fake government security clearance I.D.’s and used them to burglarize the offices of officials in the U.S. Justice Department and the I.R.S. hoping to locate and destroy any damaging information the government might have in its possession about the Church of Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard. In addition they attempted to place false information in the government’s files about itself so public officials and agencies would attack each other publicly. The plot was code named “Operation Snow White” by the GO. A Scientologist that was aware of the burglaries but later left the church volunteered information about “Operation Snow White” to the F.B.I. who in turn acting on this information conducted raids on Scientology churches in 1977 that led to the 1979 prison sentences of Mary Sue Hubbard and her co-conspirators.

During the 1977 church raids by the government, the F.B.I. uncovered written information concealed in church files that detailed crimes the GO carried out against the church’s perceived enemies. One notable discovery was that of information regarding a former New York City investigative journalist named Paulette Cooper Noble. Ms. Noble had published some articles and a short book about Scientology that the church did not think was in their favor. Through covert means the GO acquired stationary with Ms. Noble’s fingerprints on it that the GO then used to write a fake bomb threat to themselves on. Ms. Noble was arrested and charged with this crime but later vindicated for it and she resultantly sued the Church of Scientology for $55 million dollars.

     In 1982, the GO was renamed OSA {short for Office of Special Affairs} to distance the church from Mary Sue Hubbard and the GO’s activities as L. Ron Hubbard and his wife Mary Sue eventually divorced.

To prevent L. Ron Hubbard from being sent to prison as master mind of the GO, Scientologists hid him in a house in California where he remained a fugitive until the time of his death in 1986.






     One attack policy called “The Fair Game Law” is applied to enemies of the church by the church’s “Public Relations” offices formerly the GO and now OSA.

A Scientologist appointed to Fair Game a perceived church enemy may by any means available cheat, steal from, deprive of property, financially ruin, slander, libel, physically attack and even murder if necessary their target. The church views this as an ethical act and will reward the Scientologist with VIP status in the church and immunity from justice through the use of highly paid corrupt attorney’s. Former Scientologists can become the target of Fair Game by leaving the church and then speaking out about corruption in the church to the press or media. A popular method of Fair Gaming former Scientologists that talk to the press is to acquire and publish to the internet the confidential religious confessionals the people previously communicated to their church auditors regarding their previous transgressions in life. Some of the most “upstanding Scientologists” are the people most likely to Fair Game others, including former fellow church members.

In May 1990 a New York City college student named Noah Antrim Lottick aged 24, was involved in Scientology in New York City through the financial help of his parents. One night he left a party going on at the church and walked up the street to a 28 story hotel and jumped out of one of its 10th floor windows with $171.00 in his hand killing himself. Noah’s parents Mr. and Mrs. Edward Lottick tried to investigate the matter with the church but got nowhere furthering their suspicion that the church had caused his suicide.

     If a Scientologist had reported to authorities facts that led to the church being held legally responsible for Noah Antrim Lottick’s death, that person would have been declared an SP and Fair Gamed.

Noah’s parents were given a complimentary tour of the New York City church by Scientologists there during their period of mourning in which they open heartedly tried to unravel the cause of their son’s death with the church. The church was not only not moved but flatly refused to turn over to them any money they had given Noah that was still left in his church account. A church spokesperson in New York City gave as a reason:

  “…we don’t do that, refund money…Noah seemed like such a nice guy…we had no idea he was like that …we will miss him…”






     In January 2008 a group named Anonymous began protesting Scientology churches internationally. Regarded by public law enforcement officials, community leaders and business people as civil, peaceful non-violent protestors, Anonymous activists are frequently verbally and physically attacked at their protests by members of the church outraged by the gatherings.

Anonymous vs the Church of Scientology


     Many former high profile public members and top executives of the church have left the church and gone public with the activities they took part in and/or witnessed as members of the church. A whole new wave of books, short films and web sites has emerged specifically aimed at alerting people to the practices of the Church of Scientology.

This diary is a vital and necessary contribution to information available about the Church of Scientology.
