What Judges Say About Scientology
Quotes from judges and others about Scientology
Justice Anderson, Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia:
"Scientology is evil; its techniques are evil; its practice is a
serious threat to the community, medically, morally, and socially; and
its adherents are sadly deluded and often mentally ill... (Scientology
is) the world's largest organization of unqualified persons engaged in
the practice of dangerous techniques which masquerade as mental
Kenneth Robinson, British Minister of Health:
"The government is satisfied that Scientology is socially harmful. It
alienates members of families from each other and attributes squalid
and disgraceful motives to all who oppose it; its authoritarian
principles and practice are a potential menace to the personality and
well being of those so deluded as to become followers; above all, its
methods can be a serious danger to the health of those who submit to

of money from its adepts by pseudo scientific theories...
and to exercise a kind of blackmail against persons who do not wish to
continue with their sect....
The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid, and this
bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder, L. Ronald
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Paul Breckenridge, June 1984, in the
Gerry Armstrong case:
"In addition to violating and abusing its own members' civil rights,
the organization over the years with its 'fair game' doctrine has
harassed and abused those persons not in the church whom it perceives
California Supreme Court, United States v. Lee [455 U.S. 252,257,258
"When a person is subjected to coercive persuasion [as in Scientology]
without his knowledge or consent ...[he may] develop serious and
sometimes irreversible physical and psychiatric disorders, up to and
including schizophrenia, self-mutilation, and suicide".
"...capable of such danger that the public interest demands that
people should know what is going on".
Judge Constandia Angelaki:
"It is an organization with medical, social and ethical practices that
are dangerous and harmful,"
"It claims to act freely so as to draw members who subsequently
undergo... brainwashing by dictated ways of thinking that limit
Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia, Justice Brookings, 1982:
"...the teaching of Scientology and the practice of Scientology will

commission of many others".
