Several years ago I received a phone call from L. Ron Hubbard's former son-in-law, who later sent a binder notebook four inches thick, filled with news clippings, court transcripts, etc. detailing criminal activities -- including theft of personal property/funds and murder -- by leading members of the Church of Scientology. It happened in Florida.
I've spoken with former members of the "church" who realized the intensive brain-washing to which they had been subjected. Those who are current members will deny that the methods used on members is, indeed, brain washing/thought/mind control.
We're posting the Ruby's piece here relative to George W. Greer, the circuit court judge who has held the doors wide open for Michael Schiavo, so-called husband of Terri Schiavo, to commit murder. The evidence mounts that a conspiracy to kill -- MURDER - Terri, does exist, involving lawyers, judges, sheriffs, state's attorney, agents of state agencies, etc.
We certainly know Terri is not being murdered because she said she would want to be killed. The "clear and convincing evidence" accepted by Judge Greer was Michael's say-so, propped up by his brother and sister-in-law. No family member nor close friend ever heard Terri mention the subject one way or another, except to exclaim loudly and passionately that "where there's life, there's hope!" That was said after watching the docu-drama of the woman who was in a coma for 20 years (name escapes me) whose parents finally released her from artificial life-support.
Food and water is NOT artificial life-support. Terri is totally free of any type of machine, is strong and healthy despite the abuse and neglect over the past decade and a half, ordered by her ever-lovin' husband.
Maybe part of the lust for her death is religious fervor; most probably the greatest factor is $$$. Check out the information on Insurance Reserve Fraud. When we see the tens of millions of dollars available with which to grease the palms and stuff the pockets of the minions helping to pave the way for Michael Schiavo, it makes a bit more sense.
It would be different if the effort was just Michael's, wanting to rid himself of the evidence against him if Terri does learn to communicate. The army behind him, opening doors and closing books on his abuses and neglect, has been puzzling.
As this is being prepared for posting, Terri is in her fifth day without water. Yesterday George Felos, Schiavo's attorney said she is "failing fast". Meantime, the charade goes on. . . the pretended efforts to save Terri by Governor Jeb Bush, the Department of Children and Family, etc. Pray for her peace and absence of pain. She DOES feel pain, despite what has been said.

The Clearwater Bar Association,
and Judge Greer
Judge George W. Greer presides over Florida's Sixth Judicial Circuit Court. He is known internationally for the Terri Schindler Schiavo guardianship case. Pat Anderson, former attorney for the Schindlers, characterized Judge Greer's unprecedented rulings as "The Rule of Terri's Case."
The Clearwater Bar Association is delighted with Judge Greer's performance in this particular case. They presented the John U. Bird award to the Pinellas-Pasco Circuit judge on May 15, 2004. This prestigious award, which is the Clearwater bar's highest honor for a judge, was granted to Judge Greer for the way he has handled himself while overseeing the Terri Schiavo case!
Robert Dickinson III, the outgoing president of the Clearwater Bar Association, cited Judge Greer's handling of the Terri Schiavo case in terms of "passing the test". Dickinson said:
"Rarely is a person's mettle and faith tested in such a strenuous and public way as this gentleman's has been over the last few years. Rarely do mortals pass the test with such flying colors."
(Quote source: Lawyers laud judge in Schiavo case)
I find these words rather ominous when I reflect on "the test" Judge Greer has been passing — all these years. Judge Greer's consistent practice of upholding Scientology doctrines over and above Florida law is being lauded by the Clearwater Bar Association! The "test" Robert Dickenson III is alluding to is the "test case." The euthanasia test case.
Greer is "passing the test" with flying colors because he is permitting Michael Schiavo to abuse, exploit and neglect his disabled wife in defiance of the Florida statues. And the Clearwater Bar Association cheers.
Scientology attorney Wally Pope—who represented his "church" in the Lisa McPherson case—was the individual selected to bestow this high honor on Judge Greer! Wally cited high ideals, personal character, and judicial competence:
"Yet, in the teeth of all that, he has steadfastly demonstrated exactly what the John U. Bird award was created to honor: high ideals, personal character, judicial competence and service,"
lawyer Wally Pope said before bestowing the honor.
(Quote source: Lawyers laud judge in Schiavo case)
The "judicial competence" that Judge Greer has exhibited in his handling of the Terri Schiavo case is clearly the kind that ignores evidence and even Florida statutes in order to uphold Scientology doctrine — which requires the deletion of "social contagions" (the disabled) from society. It is no coincidence that a Scientology attorney — who was a lead attorney in the Lisa McPherson case — personally bestowed this award to Judge Greer. Greer's decisions to consistently rule in favor of terminating a disabled person do reflect high ideals — in the sight of Scientology.
Lies to Make Terri Schiavo Fit the Scientology Mold
One of Scientology's major goals is to change society's views about death, dying, and those L. Ron Hubbard considered to be "past the half-way point": the disabled.
Scientologists believe (1) that a disabled person is in such a state due to his or her own failings, (2) the disabled person will deliberately move in the direction of death, and (3) disabled people (Individuals who score low on the emotional tone scale) will also bring death to those around them. (See L. Ron Hubbard's book, Self Analysis, chapter 4)
Scientology teaches that if a person is disabled it is his or her fault. Terri has been falsely represented as being disabled due to self-induced vomiting which supposedly caused a potassium imbalance that resulted in a cardiac arrest. Medical records have disproved these claims, but these "facts" were presented in the court record and are still being promulgated via the media today. The truth is that Terri suffered serious injuries, (including a head and neck injury and numerous broken bones). An exceptionally competent neurologist testified (that Michael Schiavo's attorneys predictably attempted to discredit) stated that Terri's injuries are consistent with strangulation:
Dr. William Hammesfahr, Nobel prize nominee and neurologist, testified that Terri's neck injuries are consistent with only one type of injury: that of strangulation.
(Quote source: State-Funded Agency to Probe Claim of Spousal Abuse in Terri Schiavo Case)
The only person in the apartment with Terri at the time of her collapse was her husband, Michael Schiavo.
Scientology teaches that a disabled person will move in the direction of death. Terri has been illegally denied therapy for over ten years for the purpose of causing her abilities and health to deteriorate.
She has also been placed in hospice facilities — and denied any stimulation — rather than in a nursing home. This was done to create the illusion that Terri is moving in the direction of death. According to L. Ron Hubbard's doctrines, a disabled person wants to die. Michael Schiavo never misses an opportunity to state that death is "Terri's wish." This is not true. Terri wants to live so much that she exerts tremendous effort to demonstrate her abilities.
Scientology teaches that disabled persons (individuals who score low on the tone scale) will also bring death to those around them. Michael is so worried that Terri will bring "death" to him (accusations of attempted murder?) that he refuses to allow her to have speech therapy — or any therapy. Of course Michael's power to keep Terri in a state of disability is contingent upon Judge Greer's continued collusion with the Scientology agenda, which is not in accordance with Florida laws.
The Clearwater Bar Association: Cozy with Scientology
Mike Faehner, who was president-elect of the Clearwater Bar Association in 2001, endorsed the Johnson Blakely Pope Bokor Ruppel & Burns PA. firm, saying:
"In the legal community, they have a good reputation. They do quite a bit of legal educational outreach. They're a solid law firm."
(Quote source: Clearwater firm breaks from standing tradition)
This firm brings in a lot of money by litigating for the "Church" of Scientology:
Their clients include parents involved in a baby swap, a woman who was not allowed to dress after she was arrested for skinny-dipping, the controversial Church of Scientology and developers who have changed the landscape of Clearwater.
(Quote source: Clearwater firm breaks from standing tradition)
Here is an old picture of Judge Greer with attorneys who have litigated for Scientology. Wally Pope is one of them: Left to right: Chief Judge David A. Demers, Tim Johnson, Probate Judge George Greer, John Blakely, Bruce Bokor, and then Wally Pope. Wally Pope was (at times) listed as Scientology's lead counsel in various parts of the Lisa McPherson-related cases. Blakely and Bokor are or were both partners in the law firm Johnson, Pope, Bokor, Ruppel, & Burns, which often represents Scientology.
It is probable that Scientology attorneys are on the board and/or are officers of the Clearwater Bar Association! Mike Faehner said:
Many Johnson Blakely lawyers have been board members or officers in the association. The firm also sponsors bar activities, he said.
It is becoming increasingly clear that the Clearwater Bar Association is on cozy terms with the "Church" of Scientology. They choose to have their monthly meetings at the Fort Harrison Hotel—Scientology headquarters. (See: Res Ipsa Loquitur) The Clearwater bar gladly endorses firms that litigate for Scientology. They even chose a Scientology attorney to present an award to Judge Greer for "passing the test" in the way he handled the Terri Schiavo case.
Scientology For Euthanasia; Florida Law Against it
Wally Pope represented the "Church" of Scientology in the wrongful death suit filed by the Estate of Lisa McPherson. He fought to enable Scientology to completely get away with dehydrating Lisa McPherson to death. They did not succeed. They settled with the Lisa McPherson Trust!
Judge Greer's rulings have enabled Michael Schiavo (working on behalf of the Scientology agenda) to almost get away with dehydrating Terri Schiavo to death. The only reason this did not happen is because many Americans — once they saw the videos of Terri that Mr. Schindler bravely released to the media — made it known they would not stand for such evil in our society.
It is time to take a stand against this barbarism once again. Disabled citizens of the United States of America (including Terri Schindler Schiavo of Clearwater, Florida) must not be denied therapy and even life itself due to L. Ron Hubbard's disgust over the fact that a decent society takes care of its own:
"Society, the bulk of which is bent upon survival, fails or refuses to recognize death or the urge of organisms toward it. Society passes laws against murder and suicide. Society provides hospitals. Society carries such people [the disabled] on its back. And society will not hear of euthanasia or 'mercy killing'." (Self Analysis by L. Ron Hubbard; pg. 28)
May the Lord Jesus Christ be glorified as his people "hear his voice" concerning this matter and follow him.
