A link was posted on another thread but I think this deserves it's own.
What the Village Voice is saying about disconnection is so true. Let those suffering disconnection add their voice here.
I am one, and there are many others on this board.

So if Katie seems to have won, and in the process brought Scientology unprecedented bad publicity, why are some Ex-Scientologists greeting news of the divorce settlement with derision?
Because of its hypocrisy, they tell me.
With so many ex-Scientologists cut off entirely from their own children, or parents, or siblings through the church's policy of "disconnection," it's another slap in the face, they say, that Tom Cruise gets to bypass that rule and see his child and communicate freely with his ex-wife.
Excellent article and as usual so is the Comment section.
So here's a guy who gets all the goodies, who the rules don't apply to, but who has starred in the biggest disasters in a decade. And right next to that, in sharp juxtaposition, you have the tragedy of a woman who was both high in rank in the organization and beloved by everyone who met her, denied a chance to grieve properly for her son, and maybe even denied a chance to have saved his life due to the disconnection policy. Those two facts in sharp relief would have to get through some serious thought-stopping.
