This area is to compare the practices of being ex-communicated from the LDS Mormon Church, disfellowshipped from Jehova Witnesses and being declared a suppressive person from the Church of Scientology.

Scientology Presidents Son Alexander Jentzsch’s Death Ruled an Accident

I touched on a story a few days ago about Alexander Jentzsch, the son of former Church of Scientology President Heber Jentzsch.

27-year-old Alexander was found dead on July 3 at the home of his in-laws in Los Angeles. According to The Village Voice, Assistant chief coroner Ed Winter has now ruled Alexander Jentzsch’s death as an accident. Alexander was suffering from pneumonia while he was on a prescription of methadone. His injury was “drug intake,” Winter says, and “final mode” of death an accident.

Alexander’s mother Karen De La Carriere was not told about the death of her son, she came across the information on Facebook. Alexander disconnected from his mother a couple of years ago as she was declared a “suppressive person” by the church and ex-communicated. Church policy states Scientologists can have no contact with anyone ex-communicated from the church, until such time as they “handle” their situation and return to “good standing” within the church.

Alexander was living with his in-laws in Los Angeles at the time of his death, no-one had the decency to call his mother to inform her of his death, in fact Karen’s request to see her sons body one last time was refused by Alexander’s wife, who is a Scientologist.

Karen De La Carrier was not allowed to attend her son’s funeral service at the Church of Sceintology. She instead honored her son with a service at sea amongst family and friends, some of which traveled all the way from the UK to attend.

Watchtower Society Found Guilty – A Landmark Win for Candice Conti / Church of Scientology Covers up Alexander Jentzsch’s rape at 12 yrs old

In a landmark case against The Watchtower Society (Jehova Witness), Candice Conti now 26, said from 1995-1996, when she was only 9 and 10 years old and a member of the North Fremont, Ca Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, she was repeatedly molested by a fellow congregant, Jonathan Kendrick.

Conti also claimed in her suit that the Watchtowers national leaders formed “church policy” in 1989 that instructed the religion’s elders to keep child sex abuse accusations secret. Congregation elders apparently followed that policy when Kendrick was convicted in 1994 of misdemeanor child molestation in Alameda County, according to Contis lawyer Simons. This is just another way for churches to try and maintain perfect public images.

Kendrick was never criminally charged in the case involving Conti, but besides the 1994 conviction, he was later convicted in 2004 for lewd or lascivious acts with a child, according to records.

In July 2012 a Northern California jury has awarded $28 million in damages to Candice Conti – “This is the largest jury verdict for a single victim in a religious child abuse case in the country,” said Simons.

This guilty verdict against the Watchtower should serve as notice to Scientology, Mormonism and the like – you can not keep hiding behind doctrine, your self serving church “policies” will not be tolerated any longer, human life is more important than your public image! Good trumps Evil – every time!!

And while we rejoice for Candice and her landmark win against The Watchtower Society we must not forget others are
mourning the loss of a young mans untimely death. Karen De La Carriere, the mother was not informed until days after the death of her son and was not allowed to attend her sons funeral service at the Church of Scientology.

A tragic story of Alexander Jentzsch¬†(Scientology’s Former President Heber Jentzsch’s son) who recently passed away in early July. It was later found out he was raped at age 12 yrs old and was covered up by the Church of Scientology and it’s staff who knew about it. This story is an outrage!

See detailed story at this blog:

There is an ongoing investigation by the LAPD

Child abuse and molestation has become headline news almost daily in our society. I just can’t rap my head around it, there’s absolutely nothing that would silence me if I had knowledge of a child being abused, in fact I’d probably take matters in my own hands out of pure anger and disgust!

The Watchtower, Scientology & Mormonism have nothing in common, or do they?

I always knew churches were similar in many ways, they all were looking for new members, they all had certain beliefs they practiced, they all say they help the community, they all depended on donations etc. But I never thought about really comparing some of the different churches and most importantly their practices until I started making friends who were very outspoken about being ex-members of various churches. This intrigued me as I to had recently "broken up" with my church and ended the relationship after 20 years.

I’ve come to the conclusion that Religion is a belief system, Church is a MAN made organization, that can and usually does go corrupt. Despite popular belief, they are not one in the same. We do not need a building (a church) to worship or practice our faith. This blog is Not a place where we will talk much about religious philosophy, (God knows there’s enough of that going on) but rather the controlling, manipulating practices used within churches to keep their flock in line.

There are some chilling similarities between MANY Churches that I’d like to talk about with anyone interested. We will talk about things like:

Ex-communication / Being labeled by your church – why would any church put labels on people – aren’t churches supposed to be non-judgemental and open to anyone?
Shunning / Disconnection – how are people brought to the point of shunning their own children, parents, siblings & friends and why is that even neccessary in the first place?
Tithing / Donations – why do we give our money blindly without evidence of where it has been spent in the past?
Recruiting tactics
Why alot of churches practically have their own “language” to learn
Thought reform and manipulation – why do we so easily believe everything the church says?
Why are members afraid to DOUBT or question things? Doubting and questioning is healthy, it’s using your Critical Thinking SKills!
Why are so many families being broken apart (shunning) – isn’t Church supposed to help bring families and friends together?

Is there a bigger picture that we need to be looking at? My hope is that this blog will be a “not so serious” place where current members and Exes from any and all churches join in, agree or disagree or just agree to disagree on the topics. I invite you to join in, speak your mind, but most of all Think for Yourself!
