Ben, I understand you've been making phone calls to a number of public Scientologists recently, threatening to declare them if they continue to communicate with certain people.
But Scientologists are beginning to realize that just because a person is a Scientologist, it doesn't mean they forfeit their First Amendment rights. One of those rights is Free Speech, Ben. Another one is Freedom of Assembly. Scientologists have the right to communicate with anyone they want to communicate with, Ben, and they have the right to get together with anyone they want to get together with, just like everyone else in the United States.
I realize that you've been ordered to force these Scientologists to do what they're told... or else. But from what I'm hearing, I don't think your threats are frightening them any more, Ben.
If you and the rest of Miscavige's henchmen don't change your attitudes, your membership is going to start leaving your Church in droves. In fact, from what I hear the exodus has already begun. Scientologists know they don't have to subject themselves to your abuse, Ben, and they're losing patience with your thug tactics.
Try calling these guys back and apologizing for threatening them. Then ask them why they're upset and LISTEN to what they have to say.
Just a suggestion, Ben.
