Authentic Information & Answers to Questions About Scientology


 Q How does Scientology view anti-religious groups and deprogrammers?

 A So-called “deprogrammers” are money-motivated criminals who kidnap and harass for profit. Their methods include imprisonment, food and sleep deprivation and various forms of personal assault, including assault and battery and even rape. Deprogrammers in many countries have been jailed for their involvement in such violent and illegal practices. Such activities are against virtually every principle held by Scientologists.

Where families express concern over another family member’s religious beliefs or practices, the situation can generally be handled with communication. Kidnapping and violence do not resolve upsets. They destroy families.

The Church does not condone the use of violence in any form and holds that each person has an inalienable right to their own beliefs as well as their personal freedom.
