The heat is on to get more Scientologists to NY.
On Oct 18th, 2001, the C of S reported that over 825 Scientology Volunteer Ministers were at Ground Zero.
See: Thu, Oct 18 5:07 AM EDT http:// news.excite.com/ news/ pr/ 011018/ volunteer-scientology
"In the first week after the strike on the World Trade Center, over 825 Scientology Volunteer Ministers donned their trademark bright yellow shirts and made it down to Ground Zero administering thousands of the Hubbard assists to the rescue workers. These included people of all ages from as far away as Florida, California, and even London, England. The diverse group included actresses, certified public accountants, computer consultants, housewives, professional artists, and students amongst others."
As of today there are a total of 11 VM's in New York. Eight of these eleven will be gone within the next few weeks. This and other data is constantly being forward on various Scientology email lines.
Also reported on Scientology email lines:
10 Children from the Mojave Academy www.mojaveacademy.com will be traveling to New York City as Volunteer ministers. They will be there for one week or more.
Pier 94 needs additional Volunteers. Pier 94 is where family members of the victims of the WTC disaster go to be assisted in getting death certificates, financial help etc. It appears that the Salvation Army oversees this operation but that the VM's are working this area as well. Per the VM email these areas needing to be covered are vital in keeping the victims away from the evil psychs.
The 825 VM's in September down to 11 VM's in December. Looks like the VM program is downstat and explains why you never see those yellow shirts.
Pier 94 is home of the Family Assistance Center, set up to aid the families of the 9/11 victims. This is the place where the city of New York presented an urn of soil from the World Trade Center site to the families as a memorial for their lost ones. I was fully expecting to see an indelicate Scientology memo describe how "The Way To Happiness" booklets were handed out with each urn and flag. Thankfully, I, and most especially the victims' families, have been spared this affront. (So far.)
I have been reading a series of essays by Jonathan Wallace, author of Sex, Laws and Cyberspace, about his experience on the day of the terrorist attacks and afterwards as a Red Cross volunteer. I was struck by the details of his essays. They provide "texture" and, in my opinion, authenticity: only someone who was there could report such things. They are sorely lacking in any of the Scientology writings I've seen on the subject. The accounts of Scientology's Big Wins could have been written just as easily by me, sitting at my desk thousands of miles away; i.e., they show no special knowledge of the area or events that would indicate the author was present.
Let me pause here to say that I do not expect Scientologists, impaired as they are by Study Tech, to write as beautifully or emotionally as Mr. Wallace. What I do expect is a mention here or there about the disaster site. I don't see how it is humanly possible to avoid talking about it. But they do. Instead they gush "We delivered hundreds of Touch Assists today." "We prevented emotionally damaged people from accessing professional counseling." "We gave Dianetics seminars at every firestation in Manhattan." We…We…We…
Back to Pier 94…
I had not seen Pier 94 mentioned in any of the internal Scientology materials that have been leaked or otherwise posted. Mr. Wallace says of the facility:
"Inside, every agency, governmental or private, which has anything to provide, or to say, to the families of the victims has its own area. The Red Cross, Salvation Army, United Way, and a Buddhist compassionate organization are all there, along with the Department of Labor, Crime Victim's Bureau, Workers' Comp, Immigration and the FBI. There are large waiting areas everywhere for family members to sit, and a cafeteria dedicated to them alone. Mental health workers and chaplains are everywhere, looking for signs of despondence or distress, or simply for people who are sitting alone and look like they might need company."
Isn't this EXACTLY the kind of situation Scientologists are compulsively drawn to? I thought it exceptionally odd that they had not mentioned Pier 94. If they knew about it, why weren't they crowing about their Big Wins there (whether or not they were actually inside)?
We know from Mark Ebner's eye-witness account that Volunteer Ministers were indeed in NYC but I'm certain they were never as numerous or active as they claim. If they were, certainly ONE of them would have said something about Pier 94. Well, now someone has. Disappointing but not really surprising: just as the sun rises in the east, so Scientology preys on the vulnerable.
Please read "The Urns" for a real volunteer's story of Pier 94.
