DECLARATION OF KEITH SCOTT

I, Keith Scott, declare:

1. I am over the age of 18 years. I am a resident of the

State of California and I have personal knowledge of the matters

set forth herein. If called upon as a witness herein I could

testify competently thereto.

2. I was an active member of the Church of Scientology

from February, 1974 to 1979. I studied its "technical" and

"management" policies and I became familiar with its organization

structure and many of its practices.

3. I am now a Christian. Along with my wife Shawn I have

Christian ministry we call the Cults Awareness Ministry. A vital

aspect of my ministry to offer advice born of experience people

who are going in or thinking about coming out of Scientology. I

do this work from a Christian perspective, using the strength and

truths I have gained through my faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord

and Savior. I expose the untruths of Scientology and explain the

dangers to the spiritual well-being and future of people who

follow those untruths rather than the truths of the Word of God.

4. I have known Gerry Armstrong for about two years and

have communicated with him a few times during this period. I am

familiar with the part he played in bringing many of the untruths

of Scientology and its founder L. Ron Hubbard to light. I use

the information he made public, where applicable, in advising

people who are led to me as a result of their doubts about

Scientology. I am familiar with the attacks on him by

Scientology to impugn his credibility so his information would

not be believed. I am familiar with Scientology's attacks on any

critic; and this is one aspect of Scientology which is dangerous

and which I expose in my ministry.

5. When I first got involved in Scientology, I was a

Christian, but a lapsed one. At that time I believed

Scientology's public statements that it accepted Christians, had

no essential disagreement with the Christian Faith, and that

someone could practice both Christianity and Scientology. The

farther I went in Scientology, the clearer it became to me that

Scientology in its actual practices and policies was anti-

Christian. I understood that if I put my faith in God, or if I

proclaimed Christ as my personal savior, I would have been

considered " PTS Type III," or psychotic.

6. I believe I was saved from the manipulation and mind

control of Scientology by the Grace of God recognized through my

faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.

7. Only recently did I see the two bulletins appended

hereto as Exhibits [A] and [B] respectively, "Routine 3 Heaven,"

dated May 11, 1963, and "Resistive Cases Former Therapy," dated

September 23, 1968. In these bulletins Hubbard asserts that

Christ, God and Heaven are implants, designed for the enslavement

of man, and that only Scientology can save man from this

"religious" slavery. I believe this is a blasphemy of the Holy

Spirit, and that people led along Scientology's "road to total

freedom" to believe these lies and themselves blaspheme the Holy

Spirit, are in danger of eternal damnation.

8. Scientology claims to be a religion, and calls its

practices religious expression, and its management policies and

technical bulletins and all other writings about Scientology

"scriptures." That may be, for our country permits even the most

antisocial organizations to call themselves "religions," and

receive ail the benefits of the First Amendment. It is entirely

inconsistent, however, that our country, through our courts, can

stop anyone from his religious expression, speaking out against

the dangers of such-antisocial organizations.

9. To my wife's and my knowledge, harassment of us from

Scientology individuals has been minimal. We say "to our

knowledge," because we are so aware of the operations done

covertly against critics of Scientology. We feel concern that

this will change and that we will become targets because of our

friendship with Gerry. Even so, we feel compelled to offer our

help.

I declare under the penalty of perjury under the laws of

California that the foregoing is true and correct.

Executed in Arcadia, California, this 5TH

day of April, 1995.

 

[signed]
Keith Scott
