Dear Mr. Miscavige:
As you know, for many years I have been writing and speaking about your “Suppressive Person” doctrine. As you know too, I have been a declared SP since 1982, and I represent and speak for the SP class. And as you also know, you have been majorly responsible for SPs’ victimization since you took over leadership of the Scientology cult. The SP class is created in your religious scripture that you personally control, and you promote yourself as the Scientologists’ ecclesiastical head. Since we SPs comprise a clear religious class, your vilification and victimization of us individually and as a class are clear religious bigotry. So both you and I are uniquely qualified to do something about this hateful doctrine.
I came across a Q&A “What does “Suppressive Person” mean?” on a “Scientology Canada” web site, which brings me to write you on this occasion. As you know, I have written to you previously a number of times and never heard back from you, other than with continued black PR, lawfare and other forms of fair game.
The answer provided to the question “What does “Suppressive Person” mean?” which I am sure is what you ordered, is dishonest, defamatory, fanatical and dangerous. I just wrote and published my response. 1
I have not confirmed this in every case, but it appears that Scientology organizations around the world link back to the same Q&A, the same dishonest, defamatory, fanatical and dangerous statement about SPs. I had not realized this when I published my response. I also now see that the subject page on the “Scientology Canada” site, plus pages with the same text, and pages linking to those pages all state “© 2019 Church of Scientology International. All Rights Reserved.”2 CSI is the Scientology entity or corporation you commonly use to “fair game” SPs like me.
I will also try to get this letter and my response seen by as many other Scientologists as possible. They all apply the SP doctrine. You, of course, control your junior Scientologists with the SP doctrine and threat of its application. They have an interest, even if unaware of it, in not being controlled by you and this terrible doctrine.
So this is an alert to every Scientologist to confront the SP doctrine you are living by, and give serious thought to repudiating it. Society is beginning to realize what your SP doctrine is, and the evil it does, despite all your efforts to cloak it in falsehoods and fake reason. This is an opportunity for Scientologists among yourselves to realize what your doctrine is as well. It only leads to ignominy. It cannot be saved or made workable with lies. This is an opportunity to do something about it, something honest and courageous.
