Harassment againts Scientologists


While critics endlessly bring up the same examples of harassment from the CoS, their own  harassment often goes unnoticed. Indeed, the type of harrasment many engage into and support is the kind mobs exert on discriminated minorities, and therefore it is, in a way, accepted. This letter from Helena Kobrin doesn't cover by far all cases, but can help to give one a small idea.

Re: Storm Subscriber Kady O'Malley

Dear XXXXX:

I am writing concerning a subscriber to your Internet service named Kady O'Malley. Ms. O'Malley has a website on Storm at http://www.storm.ca/~tallulah. Last week, Ms. O'Malley posted to her website photographs of my home, that of my partner, and those of several other individuals. Those pages are at http://www.storm.ca/~tallulah/invest/kobrin.html

[The page is now down.]

Apparently, Ms. O'Malley came to Los Angeles in the week or so before that and took these photographs while she was here. As you will see on the first page of her "Kobrin" photographs, Ms. O'Malley suggests that she intends to produce maps to direct others to these homes.

A few days prior to these photographs appearing on Ms. O'Malley's website on Storm Internet Services, an anonymous individual posted to the Internet considerable personal information concerning my partner and me, our spouses,and other family members.

[Extremely detailed and extended information on various CoS leaders, no doubt gathered through private investigators, have indeed been posted anonymously to ARS and webbed for a while on Operation Clambake. Andreas Heldal-Lund, webmaster of Operation Clambake,  justified the publication and webbing of this information in that it would "help to cut off the source of fund of the evil cult". (Note the similarity between this justification and the one used in the early 30's against Jews.) It had, however, nothing to do with CoS fund, but with extremely intimate personal information. All this while critics use the argument of "violation of privacy" as an example of the evilness of CoS.]

On page 1 of Ms. O'Malley's website, you can see that she refers to that action by an "anonymous" accomplice of hers, obviously acknowledging her part in that act, and provides a link to that information.

The posting of this information to the Internet, including photographs of our homes, is of great concern. Ms. O'Malley is attacking us because we represent various Churches of Scientology, and she has decided that she dislikes the Scientology religion. Actions such as Ms. O'Malley's foster hatred and violence in those who are so inclined, and while we do not know if Ms. O'Malley herself is prone to violence, her actions indicate that she is clearly engaged in harassment. Her postings may well incite others to violent acts.

This is no idle concern. Members of the Scientology religion have been subjected to such violence and harassment. For example, in 1997, a gunman entered a Scientology church in Portland, shooting four people, including a pregnant woman who was paralysed as a result. He is currently contained to a mental hospital and will stand trial if he is ever found competent. In 1995, a man was arrested in Bakersfield, travelling to Los Angeles with explosives and weapons to kill an executive of the Church's Celebrity Centre. He was convicted of attempted murder. Other Scientology churches have been the targets of bomb threats and actual violene, including just last year, when someone entered a Scientology church in Toronto, Canada and punched the receptionist in the face.

In 1996, someone posted my address to the Internet, and our home was robbed approximately 10 days later. I have personally been robbed, and my husband and I have had our ATM card numbers fraudulently used to the tune of over 40 transactions and nearly $6,000 in the last few months. I am regularly vilified on one of th more scurrilous USENET groups on the Internet, and subjected to unspeakable obscenities and other forms of name-calling.

[Grady Ward, a CoS "critic", prouded himself of dozens upon dozens of posts in which Helena Kobrin was vilified, David Miscavige raped, etc. Some excerpts: "She is really getting wet down there thinking about her children looking up their mom on the Internet and finding "shit-vagina whore" accompanying it ... Shit-vagina 'ho ... They spit on her wrinkled face. They teach their children to defecate on her and her publicly-buggered boss, [Miscavige]. Even <Miscavige> won't fuck her when she is eventually offloaded ... Menopause won't come too soon for that bitch."

My partner, Kendrick Moxon, has experienced similar harassment. Websites and postings such as Ms. O'Malley's literally place us and our families in great danger to person and property.

I seriously doubt that you intend for your service to be used for such purposes. I therefore request that you have Ms. O'Malley remove these photographs and links from her webpage, or cancel her account should she refuse to do so.

Very truly yours,

Helena Kobrin
