Tory Christman - Magoo and Jett Travolta - 2003 Affidavit

 

 

Tory Christman

Alias Magoo

Tory Christman is a Scientology ex-member who has been 30 years in Scientology. She is one of the most visible critics. Her credibility, though, has eroded even within the critical movement, with prominent critics claiming she is "loose with facts". She also is one of the few people, maybe even the only one, who was virtually "expelled" by Anonymous for her "deceitful and manipulative" ways. I always gave her the benefit of doubt, until I saw her from my own eyes engage in blatant lying while trying to capitalize on the wave of emotion in the wake of the Jett Travolta tragedy - something that prompted this web page. The sad thing is that even when directly pointed to the lies, she just did not seem to realize what was wrong at all.

  • In the wake of the Jett Travolta tragedy in 2009, exploited the media emotion to give interviews claiming Scientology prevents people from taking their anti-seizure drugs, when in fact she made an Affidavit in 2003 where it can be seen that she was allowing online and on staff in the Church of Scientology for 30 years while also allowed to take her medications.

Tory Christman 2003 Affidavit

Tory Christman, alias Magoo, made a video describing in a dramatic way her experience when she tried to stop her anti-seizure medication. She also gives interview to the press blaming Scientology for preventing people to take their much need medication, all in an obvious desire to capitalize on the emotions generated by the Jett Travolta tragedy. The problem with Magoo telling this story is not that it is untrue. The problem is that it is only part of the whole story, and that by presenting this part as being the whole, she engages in a monstrous lie, especially since the rest of the story actually disproves the impression she gives in the video and what she is telling the press. The full story can be found in an affidavit she made six years earlier, in 2003. You will find the full version below, with the relevant parts highlighted and commented.

Magoo and Jett Travolta

In the wake of Jett Travolta tragedy, Tory Christman Magoo made a video entitled "Message to John Travolta" and gave interviews to the press with contents aligned on the video. In the video and in the press, she relates the incident where she was ordered to stop her own anti-seizures medication. The problem with this, however, is that she tries to portray this incident as if this was what happens in general in Church of Scientology (CoS). She "forgot" to include the fact that this order was over-turned by L. Ron Hubbard himself, and that she spent 30 years in Scientology while being allowed on her medication. Magoo therefore lied by omission. Her intention was clearly to create a panic in public opinion, capitalizing on the emotions created by the tragic death of Jett Travolta. As if that was not bad enough, she also deleted the comments on her video channel from poster who pointed to inconsistencies between what she was saying and her 2003 affidavit. She also banned the posters. Eventually she had to leave at least some of these messages on her channel as her opponent started to write people individually. To lying, she thus also showed that she has no consideration for free speech either, quite at odd with what she is pretending to preach to the CoS.

Magoo's web page, most probably made and maintained by Frederic rice. Mostly just a confuse amount of unsorted links.

The CoS' "Hate" page about Tory Chrisman. Having seen her lie and engage in censorship to cover her lies, I now give credence to some of the claims made on this page. One is that she sued her employer claiming that she had for $2000 expenses after a fall in Dec 2001, the same month she was caught on camera doing a protest! The other is the testimony of her husband, whom Tory accused of leaving her, and of course blamed the CoS too (who else..). Reading her husband's story, we get a much more credible version, one that does not help to shed a better light on Magoo.

Mark Bunker's page on Tory. Unlike Tory, Mark has quite some credibility in my eyes, even though I disagree with him on fundamental questions. I am in no position to judge his friendship with her.

Andreas Heldal-Lund's page on Christman. Andreas explains how he came to talk Magoo out of Scientology, and also how she came to be one of his best friends. The page contains numerous links. Probably the best page of all.
