MURDER IS MURDER
(Written on 12 November 1968 for release during the illegal inquiry and ban on foreign students in the UK and issued to preserve it as an example of LRH use of the media.)
People who live in tin houses shouldn’t throw can openers.
This furor over the world against Scientology is stirred up by small psychiatric controlled groups. It cannot help but result in worldwide demands to investigate the inhuman brutality they use in their institutions.
Their 19th century methods must end. They act like the mad scientists in a bad old-time movie. The true medical doctor is ashamed to be associated with them. The psychiatric idea of man is a godless, soulless piece of meat. They demand their rights to butcher at will. They mock every Christian sentiment. According to them everyone is hopelessly mad and anyone who opposes them is especially so. Yet where are their cures? They only have victims. They torture and kill out of sight in their institutions.
Scientology organizations over the planet are urging laws which forbid killing or injuring the insane. Murder is murder. Why do the nations of the world condone the seizure and slaughter of citizens? The political implications of letting these men seize and kill whoever they wish are serious. They do not know best. They cure no one. They attack anyone who tries to help his fellow man.
If legislators were sincere they would think of their people and forbid the abuse, injury or killing of the insane. This hypocrisy on their part has gone far enough.
