Denial by Scientologists

THE Church of Scientology last night denied the Sydney man who was allegedly stabbed to death by his psychotic daughter after refusing her psychiatric drugs was a top recruiter for the church.

A man with the same name as the dead father is listed on the Church of Scientology’s “Honour Roll” in the 2002 Impact magazine which glorifies members worldwide for their efforts in “signing more than 20 members to the church” or for donating $US20,000 ($23,200) or more.

The man’s daughter, 25, faced Bankstown Local Court yesterday charged with fatally stabbing her 53-year-old father and sister at their Revesby home last Thursday. She is also charged with stabbing her mother, 52.

The girl’s parents refused her psychiatric treatment because of their Scientology beliefs, the court heard.

The man is also named on a website, stop-wise.biz, set up by a former Scientologist as a warning to would-be church recruits that the World Institute of Scientology Enterprises, known as WISE, is a recruitment vehicle for Scientology.
