Thread: Roger Jon Ellory, a Scientologist ?

    Default Roger Jon Ellory, a Scientologist ?

    Hello guys,

    I'm a French journalist, inquiring on R.J. Ellory - he's a much praised author here in France. I'm trying to understand his role in Scientology over the years - I understood he was an auditor in Birmingham the 80s, but what now ? I read somewhere he was now HES ? Did any of you know him and might share a bit of your knowledge with me, so that we could expose the truth ?

    Best !

    Julien

    I did a google search and saw that someone commented on this article stating that " At 0.13, we see the famous author RJ Ellory " in one of these three Birmingham church videos:
    Birmingham in the House! Another Jaw-Dropping Scientology Video

    The comment states:

    At 0.13, we see the famous author RJ Ellory. He's the chap with the red hair, white sweater, black trousers. Roger is a 'Richard and Judy book club' recommendes, and currently on sale in my local Asda. He has also been the chief auditor at Birmingham Org since the 1980s. In his books, he has described himself as working in the field of 'drug rehabilitation'.

    He's also an Honor Roll member of the International Association of Scientologists ( IAS )

    His wife is or was the public executive secretary - PES - at Birmingham Org
    A recent PR piece states:
    "
    Vicky Ellory, the Church's Public Affairs Director in Birmingham, said: "The planning still has to go through and it is quite hard to estimate exactly how long the restoration will take but I am hopeful that we will be in there 12 months from now. "

    Thanks for your help !

    I've caught a few pictures of him at a fundraising in 2011 for the new Birmingham HQ - the ones present in the video released. I also read a text he published in the Greenfiel School Blog last year. But I still don't understand if he's still a chief auditor, or if he has a different role... His wife Vicky, though, seems to be still a prominent figure, promoting these new HQ in the press...

    I doubt he's a staff auditor anymore. He's a celebrity now... perhaps infamous in the current but a celebrity never the less. The idea is that as long as his wife is on staff, they are contributing and will give him some slack. What they try to do is use him to promote scientology and it's programs. I am sure they are 'handling' him for having faked his own reviews, thereby endangering the church PR wise, and his celebrity status

    Good analysis. So he might just be off the regular staff, but still helping through other ways - especially financial ways...

    I don't think he's current staff at all. Just his wife is. He's an auditor and might come in now and then to help out but staff are on 2.5 yr and 5 yr contracts and most can't wait for a way to get out of re-signing another one. No, if he's at the org, it's probably as a volunteer, now that he's a big celebrity..... but this is just my impression from experience with how that all worked when I was in Scn. Better to verifiy it by finding someone here who has been to Birmingham Org who may know someone with insider info.

    The guy who runs the Scientology-London website you mentioned, he would be abble to find out if anyone could.

    Thanks AnonyMary ! I guess you're right on his current status. I've been trying to contact ex-Scn John Duignan, who said he had known him during his years in the cult. I hope he'll have time to answer me and give me more insight on his "active" years.

    He's often describing himself as dividing his time between writing and working in the field of drug rehabilitation. Since the man has been rewriting his own history several times, I was wondering if the latter part was a way for him to cover up his activities in Scn. I'll try to dig a little more on that.

    If he is using drug rehabilitation as part of his rewrite of history, then he will have to rewrite that again. Drug rehab, scientology style is bad for public image now!
