rapport avec la scientologie et les sectes: les "rencontres internationales"
bidon des pro-sectaires: personne n'a été invité
chez les anti-sectaires.
That's a presentation of the speakers invited to this meeting
about what some US congressmen call "religious tolerance".
Some were already present while meeting in april the President Alain
Vivien of the French Interministerial Mission to Combat Cults:
-Jeremy T Gunn - USIP (US institute of peace)
-David Little USIP
-Karen Lord, CSCE staff (Congrès)
Was also present then M. Parmly de l'Ambassade US
M. Gunn is well known as someone holding very displaced speeches against
France in september 99 in OSCE. French Embassy has protested already.
Reiterating, M. Gunn - despite the fact he's no longer a member of the
US delegation, has still used inflamatory speeches against France and
french positions, lying overtly before the US congress during its 14th
june 2000 hearing. This was presided by M. Gilman, already known for
his declarations favouring the scientology cult, and already a signatory
of the letter adressed to Lord Russell Johnston, president of the EU
assembly before the EU council. That letter tried to get rid of the
discussions about the EU resolution 1412 presented by the EU deputy
Nastase against cults illegal behaviours.
M. Seiple, Embassador for the USA, has given a far more subtle/nuanced
declaration before the same US congress committee's hearings.
David Little looks to be completely scientology-acquired, as he has
signed many "open letters" to the french president or prime
Minister in newspapers, in France or in USA.
He would now be a member of a "religious group", having therefore
now a lesser position in this group of apologists.
Karen Lord has always been since a member of the CSCE staff, has spoken
before the BIDDH in Vienna, and has always had a defending line favouring
any "religious" group. She's also a friend of Massimo Introvigne.
Massimo Introvigne has insisted a lot of times in writing to know why
the french mission had supposed that she was a member of a cult -specifically,
of scientology; it looks that it was a desinformation having been overtaken
trhoughy different channels. Both will speak into ex-USSR countries
to penetrate the idea there of accepting any "religion". Neither
Introvigne nor Lord has ever said a word criticizing any criminal cult.
Part of these meetings are to be done in Lettonia, and will attack France
positions against criminal cults.
The meeting on july 13th in Lettonia should be under the presidence
of John Graz, a swiss journalist and activist writing from time to time
in "Conscience et Liberté", a magazine of evangelist
inspiration. He's a pro-cultic activist. His organization: http://www.irla.com/organization.html
Bruce Casino, Herbert Jentzsch, and probably Joseph Grieboski are scientologists.
Jentzsch is the president of scientology international, and is under
arrest from spanish justice.
WELLSPRING OF FREEDOM
A PROGRAM OF THE INSTITUTE ON RELIGION AND PUBLIC POLICY (IRPP)
Invites you to a discussion of
The State vs. Religion in France:
New Legislation Threatens Religious Liberty in France
A new, "anti-sect" bill passed by the French National Assembly
latest effort of extremists in France to pass repressive legislation
to infringe upon the rights of religious believers and to restrict the
of 173 "blacklisted" groups, including Southern Baptists,
Seventh-day Adventists, Scientologists, Mormons and Unificationists,
manufacturing a means to ban disfavored religions from France. According
to the bill, it "intends to provide individuals and the public
authorities alike with new causes of action to allow them to paralyze
the activities of cult organizations and render them harmless."
While such language denotes a desire to protect the lives and interests
of the French people, in reality
this law limits and restricts the rights of all French people to practice
their beliefs as they wish. There is a great deal of interest and concern
over these recent initiatives in the French Parliament, as measures
any religious or faith community in a free society will effect the lives
countless believers, not only in France, but around the world.
