Several years ago I saw some headlines on various websites indicating that there was a CoS connection with the effort to help Michael Schiavo get a court ordered euthanasia procedure against Terri Schiavo in Florida. I brushed it off and paid it no attention.
This Christian website has some very interesting articles on the Schiavo situation and the CoS's possible involvement. They make some interesting comparisons with Lisa McPherson and how she died, or was murdered.
Here's a snippet from the central article followed by the link.....
"....Pat Anderson, attorney for Robert and Mary Schindler, knows something about Scientologists and litigation. She referred to them as "the masters of Rambo litigation." During the time Pat Anderson was representing the former Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner Joan Wood (Lisa McPherson case) she made a statement about their fair game policy:
If you are not a member of the church or an active supporter of the church, you are fair game for the church. And they will use litigation to silence their critics. They do not tolerate contrary opinion.12 [bold emphasis added]The fair game policy is used on anyone the Scientology organization deems an enemy:
ENEMY SP Order. Fair game. May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed. 13Terri Schindler Schiavo, a woman that Scientologists consider to be worthy of treatment they reserve for the incapable kind, is definitely "fair game." She is not known to be a Scientologist but she is being treated as though she, like Lisa McPherson, tried to defect from Scientology. Terri is legally married to a man who shares L. Ron Hubbard's philosophy in at least one crucial area: desiring death over disability. Michael Schiavo's illegal pursuit of Terri's death by dehydration instead of her rehabilitation is also in line with L. Ron Hubbard's diabolical value system...."
And this link takes you to a list of articles....
Whether there was a connection or not, this website has really done it's homework on Scientology. Some of the articles portray the CoS's thorough infiltration of both Clearwater's and Florida's legal system, including politicians.
Arnie Lerma's case is mentioned in this article.....
