Name or Alias: anonymous
How long ago was your disconnection? 3 years
Are you a current member, an ex-member, or never a member?
never a member
Did you disconnect, or did someone disconnect from you?
The other person disconnected.
1. What is (or was) your relationship to the disconnected person?
My wife's son disconnected from her because she refused to disconnect from me.

2. What were the circumstances surrounding the disconnection?
My son in law was ordered to disconnect from his mother because of her relationship with me. She is not a (vocal) Scientology Critic and neither of us has ever attempted to influence his own practice.

3. Were you given a choice about disconnecting? Was there anything you could have done to avoid the disconnection? If so, please describe the choice involved or what you could have done. Do you now feel that you made the best decision?
I was never given a choice. My wife was given the choice of either disconnecting from me or forcing me to cease my open criticism of the 'Church'. There was no decision necessary on our part, and, on my son-in-law's part, it was a decision of whether to lose his mother or his own job, friends and wife.

4. Was a formal disconnection letter sent? If so, what did it say? If not, how was the disconnection communicated?
No. Since my wife was never a 'critic' herself, the entirety of the extortion was aimed at controlling me. There was no disconnection letter and the first knowledge of 'Church' action was direct action to get her fired from her Scientology company. There was never an 'official' goldenrod sent, nor any disconnectionletter, only phone conversations from her son, his auditor and the IJC to the effect.

5. In what way has the disconnection affected your life?
In my case, it's had little effect, except to emphasize the malicious nature of the 'Church', which was never in doubt. It's been very difficult for my wife, who was, until the 'Church' orderd the disconnection, very close with her son.

6. What were your feelings at the time about the disconnection?
Resigned abhorence

7. What are your current feelings about the disconnection?
Resigned abhorence

8. Has there been an attempt at reconnection? Were there any conditions for reconnecting? If there was an attempt, did you succeed at reconnecting?
The Disconnection was purely one-sided, and, 'Church' ordered and enforced, so, although every effort has been taken towards reconnection, since the prerequisites haven't been fulfilled, i.e. divorce or my cessation of opposition to Scientology, it has not been successful.

9. If you are currently disconnected, would you like to reconnect? Do you believe it is possible, in your particular case? If not, why?
Absolutely. I think it's not only possible, but probable, once the 'Church' that is enforcing it loses its ability to enforce it.

Would you like to make any additional comments?
The 'disconnection' I'm describing is of a kind not even described in Scientology theory, yet, it's completely in keeping with the extortionist nature behind the theory. Scientology deliberately takes hostages in order to enforce compliance.
