Nanette Asimov's latest San Francisco Chronicle article on the Narconon scandal ("Narconon banned from S.F. schools: Anti-drug teachings tied to Scientology called inaccurate", linked from Stop-Narconon.org) paints an interesting picture:
"Nor does the revised curriculum still direct the Narconon speaker to lead students in thanking L. Ron Hubbard, who founded the Church of Scientology in the early 1950s and co-founded Narconon in 1966 with William Benitez, an Arizona inmate and addict turned anti-drug crusader."
This must have been a bitter pill for Narconon Executive Director Clark Carr to swallow! The whole point of Narconon's infiltration of the public schools was to safepoint the schools for L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. Failing to publicly give credit to Hubbard for his "research" on drug addiction is in direct violation of one of Hubbard's own directives, titled NARCONON CREDIT, and dated 24 Nov 80. Hubbard wrote:
"It is understandble that NN [Narconon] would not use the name Scn [Scientology]. That would connect it with the church and church and state must be kept separate.
However, in order to make a bridge back over into Scn, it would seem to be necessary to use my name in NN publicity."
His name must be used. You can read the entire directive here:
So Clark Carr was actually offering to violate Hubbard's own orders in order to try to keep Narconon in the public schools. But this desperate gambit didn't work. Narconon is officially, publicly, emphatically BANNED in San Francisco. And come October it will be banned from every public school in California.
No wonder Narconon (Scientology) hates the Internet.
Boston is next, folks.
