I admire Lori's tenacity and wish her book had a happier ending. Hopefully her story will.
At the heart of Lori’s story of love and loss is Scientology’s insidious practice of “disconnection,” wherein the church forces followers to separate themselves from individuals or entire families, that Scientology perceives may be a “threat” to the spiritual health of a follower. More often than not, the follower has no choice in the matter, has been lied to as to the circumstances of the “threat,” nor is old enough to even know better, which is what makes the circumstances in “A Mother’s Heartbreak” all the more tragic. Stories abound of the abusive practices of Scientology, mostly from those who have served in the church’s monastic “Sea Organization” or on staff in the church’s many “orgs.” Lori’s is one of the first narratives that empirically reveals that the psychological, and at times physical abuse and devastation from disconnection, extends to “public” members of Scientology as well. Lori’s story is vitally important in understanding the personal costs of Scientology’s abusive, and potentially criminal conduct. Her book needs to be read by not only families who may be experiencing the very real pain of disconnection, but also by the public at large, as well as by sociologists, religious scholars and law enforcement, so that collectively, we understand why society needs to take a stand against these and other abusive, cult-like religious practices
When faced with the choice of giving her children willingly to Scientology's abusive Sea Org and sharing a parent/child unconditional love, she has no choice as this IS a story of unconditional love and hope. This is a Mother's Heartbreak and given you have half a heart, yours will break too but not without being filled with the tremendous hope displayed by this amazing lady full of love. Must read to understand this unique perspective.I am Inspired.
