With titillation galore, for some reason Scientology thinks the Nigerian government is interested in their usual scurrilous statements about Vaughn and Stacy.
Probably in a concessionary moment to the Moslem faith of the Nigerian delegation, Scientology sought to soften their trashing of Vaughn and Stacy by making such patently absurd statements as the following:
"This story is not an attempt to just trash the Youngs, but to provide an accurate perspective from which to understand how they arrived at the point where they abandoned their own spiritual enlightenment and turned to evil, where they now find themselves in the pay of an extremely unscrupulous attorney (who has been accused by a former associate of having sex with minor boys)."
Further attempting to justify their flagrant character assassination of the Youngs, the Scientologists wrote that "No one wishes to see the Youngs suffer. On the contrary they have been repeatedly warned against the course they have embarked upon, not because of anything the church would do, but because they are now driven by a mixture of hatred and greed and are being trapped by their own destructive acts despite the pain it is bringing to their lives."

THE TRUE STORY OF VAUGHN YOUNG AND STACY YOUNG
One of the most absurd falsehoods which Stacy Young once tearfully related to a CAN audience several years ago was that the Church had attempted to break up her marriage and was still somehow trying to do so, even while she and Vaughn Were at a CAN convention. While this makes for a great cult victim story, Stacy's story and reality are far apart. Telling a lie over and over does not make it the truth no mailer how many people repeat it, no matter how much sympathy it evokes.
Factually, Vaughn and Stacy's Young's own unfaithfulness and deceit toward each other is the real reason their marriage was failing at the time this statement was made and it would not be surprising if this same sort of thing was going on today given their long record of unfaithfulness toward not only each other, but to their friends, former spouses and family. This surely cannot be blamed on anyone but themselves. Though Vaughn and Stacy have glorified their departure from the Church for purposes of interest and to enhance their ability to entice newspapers and magazines to pay them (mainly the German publications), to any impartial observer it is certain that there is two sides to every story. The other side of the story requires one examine their history of betrayal in their personal relationships and in so doing a strong argument could be made that the real story includes the factor that Vaughn and Stacy failed to remain in the Church because they were continually dishonest with others and with themselves. When the betrayal became too great, and the Youngs lost for money overcame them, the only way to ease their conscience was to belittle, ridicule to make it appear that they were the victims.
One of the first problems the Youngs encountered while members of the Church, was when they began a relationship by sexually cheating on their respective spouses. This was hardly something which could be expected to be condoned. Trust and loyalty are among the qualities most admired by Scientologists and by many people. This quality is very important when one is helping another to reach spiritual enlightenment through auditing in the Church and it is a very important quality in any, civilized society. Despite this, the Youngs chose to begin their relationship while Vaughn was receiving basic levels of religious counselling from Stacy.
Unbelievably, the Youngs now promote themselves as "experts," yet, having sex with someone whom you are supposed to be counselling is a grave ethical violation and no "expert" would ever commit such a serious violation. If a doctor were to do such a thing, he could probably lose his license and certainly would not be considered an expert' in his field in a court of law. Looking back on it, it is certainly not unreasonable to believe that they should have been dismissed on the spot, However, the Youngs promised they would reform and that it would not happen again. What compounded this incident was that both Vaughn and Stacy were legally, married to others at the time, introducing adultery into the picture.
This story is not an attempt to just trash the Youngs, but to provide an accurate from which to understand how they arrived at the point where they abandoned their own spiritual enlightenment and turned to evil where they now I . find themselves in the pay of an extremely unscrupulous attorney (who has been accused by a former associate of having sex with minor boys).
The main point of this is simply that the unfaithfulness in their personal lives has been going on for a long time and extends through two marriages and to the people the), were once friends with in the Church. (This incident was not the first time Vaughn had committed adultery. While married to his first wife, he had several extramarital affairs with women who were also married.)
Even so, despite how the Youngs now portray with heavy bitterness what happened, they were not treated harshly by the Church over the matter but were offered help to overcome their lapse in personal integrity. The evidence shows that the stories the Youngs now tell are done to enhance their earning power in collecting fees for being witnesses in court for opposition lawyers looking to make a buck.
Instead of harsh treatment, the Youngs were given every assistance to resolve the matter. Eventually they divorced their then-partners and later married each other. Instead of learning from the harm which this sort of betrayal creates for others, history would repeat itself after the Youngs left the Church. While living high on the hog, earning thousands of dollars in witness fees for bearing false testimony, against former friends in the Church (testifying on behalf of a known lying criminal - Steven Fishman and his wacko psychologist) Stacy became involved in yet another extramarital encounter which resulted in a tubal pregnancy (not by Vaughn) which of course necessitated considerable financial expense to the Youngs, for an operation to terminate the pregnancy.
No one wishes to see the Young's suffer. On the contrary they have been repeatedly warned against the course they have embarked upon, not because of anything the Church would do, but because they are now driven by a mixture of hatred and greed and are being trapped by their own destructive acts despite the pain it is bringing to their lives.
As to Vaughn, he is also no stranger to this pattern of betrayal. Admittedly, he began his road to infidelity with prostitutes and under-age girls. His first dalliance was with a minor, with whom he had regular sexual relations for four months. To many this sort of thing sounds harmless or the tribulations of youth. However he did not stop in his Young. In another instance, while a house guest of some friends, Young regularly peeped down their young daughter's blouse at her breasts and took every opportunity to rub her back, although he was a grown man. His behavior became so evident and reprehensible, that the girl's parents threw him out of the house. The question has to be raised, what the hell was doing that has never been found out if he 'A was be I ng so blatant with his friend's underage daughter?
Flaunting Church ethical principles, Vaughn secretly continued his deviant behavior. On one occasion unbeknownst to anyone at the time, he misused his position while working on a project out of town, to attempt to seduce a 16 year-old female assistant whom he had coyly arranged to stay in his hotel room. The incident only came to light when the frightened and shaken girl reported the incident to Vaughn's superiors: "I woke up about 3 am to find Vaughn in my bed telling me he was going to rub my back He started rubbing my lower back By this time I was getting very nervous and upset and not sure how to get out of this tactfully. Then he stared to move closer to my chest and I jumped up and said I had to go to the bathroom. He made a sound as if he was asleep. When I got back he was in his bed, he reached over when I got into mine and patted me on the head.
"I fell asleep - then at 6 am I woke up again to find him next to me - again he was rubbing my back but his hand went up my shirt front. I shoved it away and told him to get in his bed and let me steep. He turned over as if in his steep and eventually went to his own bed. This time I was really scared and I didn't go to sleep for one and a half hours."
Vaughn, who was 47 years old at that time, was shown this letter from the girl and asked to respond. He claimed that she had awaken and that he was only rubbing her back to put her to sleep, however his written statement at the time belies what was really going on:
"I sat down on the edge of the bed and began to rub her back to put her to sleep. I continued to rub her back and her breathing began to grow even. My mistake was then not getting up. Instead, I laid down on my side, on the right side of the bed, popping my head up with my right hand. She was now laying on her stomachI rubbed her back and her neck for some time as I found it relaxing also. I remember laying there just rubbing her back with my eyes closed.
"As far as touching her breasts, she was on her stomach. I think twice I ran my hand across her back (I had rubbed up and down and then went from one side to the other) and then slightly down the ribs, I encountered what would be the flesh side of the breast. I did not dally on it nor did I message the side of her breast. I spent the time on her back and neck."
His flimsy explanation was not bought by his superiors, who had no other choice but to remove him from his position. His attempted molestation of one of the Church's members had been outrageous, What possesses a 47 year-old man to make sexual advances toward a 16 year-old girl who has been entrusted to help him its his assistant?
Rather than society's choice, which would have been outright dismissal or possibly jail, Vaughn chose to enter the Church's voluntary rehabilitation program. Today, Vaughn continually makes outrageously false statements about alleged hardships he experienced while doing this rehabilitation program (the RPR He of course leaves out the real reasons that he was sent to be rehabilitated i.e. he could not be trusted to keep his hands of underage girls and thus was potentially a threat to them and to himself. Perhaps the smartest course of action would have been to dismiss him right then and be done with it, but because Young wanted to remain, he was given the option of proving he could manage to keep his unethical impulses in check and to rehabilitate himself.
The real truth about the RPF, is that Young faked his way through and was never honestly doing the program. Even so, what he is saying now about the RPF is nothing like what he describes in his written report about how the program was. Youngs wrote after completing the religious[sic] counselling program which forms part of the rehabilitation program:
"so... to summarize it? -an amazing adventure into (and through) one's sell its well as another and others.
"I wish all others similar gains and knowledge -' but done easier. One is responsible for one's condition. And more. And more again.
"Pretty amazing stuff."
So the reader is not mislead, Scientology auditing is quite effective and routinely produces miracles, however it requires one's active participation and it is clear that Young was just not up to the standard of ethics needed to ensure his own advancement.
In whatever way Vaughn's perverted behavior was being held in check while he was a member of the Church, once he left and apparently the peer pressure which was acting as a restraint on his anti-social impulses came off and Young was left to his own devices.
This became evident when it was learned Young was in touch with a perverted old woman who was publishing pornography on a BBS as a way to attract men with whom she could have affairs. Regardless of his motive, Young started editing hardcore pornographic material for a woman he met on a Computer, bulletin board called "Easystreet," and whose computer name was "Redhead."
In one letter to Young, introducing him to her latest sex stories which she was asking him to edit, "Redhead" described one of these stories as "a man I was to meet and possibly have an affair with." and another as "a sex story about a pre-teen." She credits Young for restarting in her porn- story career, and wrote "the last two chapters (of the pre-teen sex story) since I have been talking to you."
Vaughn's answer was to give her his telephone number and suggest times she could call when his jealous wife was away. (Note, rather than face the consequence of engineering an encounter with another woman and getting caught in the act, Young has apparently convinced Stacy that this whole affair was actually a set up and that his lapse in faithfulness was really something which was staged by an investigator. Nothing could be further from the truth.)
Vaughn's activities are reminiscent of those of former CAN president, Michael Rokos, who resigned from his position in October 1990, amid a flurry of publicity exposing him as a pervert found guilty on the charge of "soliciting lewdness." Cynthia Kisser, who tried to cover up Rokos' criminal conviction, was the executive director of CAN at the time.
This story is only printed here to present perspective and to expose the real motives of the Youngs. Since the Youngs chose any public forum to lie about the Church of Scientology it is important to know that the are completely mercenary and only do it for money. Just ask Wollersheim: he could not get their help until he agreed to pay the Youngs $5,000 per month from the FACTNet insurance funds.
Stacy and Vaughn currently live in Seattle. Stacy says their move was motivated by family reasons and their own "Scientology affair." She even gave her husband that as the reason when she moved there ahead of him. However, it later came to light that her Northerly exodus was motivated by an affair of an entirely different nature - one which she does not publicly discuss.
Following the same "auspicious" pattern with which she launched her marriage to Vaughn, Stacy began an affair with Bob, the bosun of a cruise ship, while on a trip to Mexico with her mother. Stacy began the sexual relationship, unbeknownst to her mother, who later said, when asked about it, "That's impossible, she's married!"
Bob's account of this meaningful relationship, however, is quite different.
"The ship usually had old women on it," he said. "Stacy was on board and she wasn't wearing a wedding ring and she kept on flirting with me. When at sea you get horny, and Stacy was an available and willing piece of ass." Stacy explained she was married, but that she and her husband had an "understanding." Though she kept saying how much she liked him, Bob let her know he was only interested in a one night stand. A few months later, Stacy went to Seattle where the cruise line offices were located, pretending to be ,vorking on an article for an LA magazines She interviewed everyone at the cruise line office so that she could contact Bob again. When she did, she told him again how much she liked him. Bob paid little attention to what she said, but willingly accepted another opportunity to have sex with her in her hotel room Stacy then moved to Seattle, and Bob spent several days in her apartment. She told him she did legal work for her husband, a very successful attorney and that she earned $20,000 to $50,000 per year.
She also kept telling him how much in love with him she was, and that she had moved to Seattle just for him.
In a rare moment of honesty, she also admitted that she had become pregnant after having sex with him the first time on the ship. At that point Bob ended the meaningful relationship. The last time he saw her was in June 1994.
The story might have ended there but it did not. While the cat's away the mice will play. And while Stacy enjoyed her infidelities in Seattle, Vaughn was having yet another affair elsewhere.
Vaughn who was still living in California, took the opportunity to begin a new affair. this time with a woman named JJ, who he met at a local spa, The affair lasted for several months, and might have continued longer, had a by now upset Stacy not insisted that Vaughn move to Seattle to be with her.
Vaughn's relationship with JJ was getting too out of hand, even for Stacy. JJ flattered him and Vaughn talked about how she thought lie was the best lover and a great guy.
He claimed, however, that she was very shallow and they didn't have much to talk about. But he felt that he had the best of both worlds - great sex with JJ and intellectual conversation with Stacy.
But Vaughn was in a real bind. He didn't want to lose either one and had to lie to both. He felt JJ was getting "really close" (she wanted him to marry her - the other side of the coin from Stacy's affair!) - and though Stacy knew about his affair. he hid just how involved that relationship had become.
Stacy tried to accept all of this as a natural part of their "understanding," but in fact became very upset, as she was also aware of several other women with whom Vaughn had had affairs during the same time period.
Stacy said that she would have been more worried about JJ if she didn't think that Vaughn loved her, although she admitted being upset it away by saying that Vaughn was simply getting in touch with his feminine side, which is a phase some people go through.
Incredibly, Stacy has even given a tearful speech during which she has sought to place the blame on the Church's doorstep for her marriage being on he rocks several times even a fool can see that her own unfaithfulness is to blame for any wedge that has been driven between them. The point of this is not to embarrass the Youngs for being unfaithful, but rather to show, that no matter what it is that has gone wrong in their lives, the Youngs refuse to be responsible for the circumstances they find themselves in and to show that as a matter of personal history, they call in no way be objective about their pronouncements about Scientology or people involved in it. They can only take their own impressions and artfully and purposely twist them to make them sound as negative as possible as this is what they get paid for.
Although it is always regrettable to see any marriage in trouble, these two have created their own problems.
End of histories.
Personal and confidential (Some people might think this means "Don't show Bob." But Bob thinks it means "Show Bob.")
I told you, it just keeps getting better and better...
