This is an entirely non-commercial site. Its content is intended to be critical
of the human and civil rights violations, abuses, fraud and criminality of the
Scientology enterprise. If we failed in this intention, we apologize. Neither
Gerry Armstrong, Caroline Letkeman or gerryarmstrong.org is affiliated with or
sponsored or authorized by any Scientology organization, and in no way or measure
whatsoever do we support Scientology's rights violations, abuses, fraud or criminality.
We are fully aware that many documents herein, and gerryarmstrong.org itself,
are prima facie violations of an Injunction
the Scientology cult obtained in California Superior Court against Gerry Armstrong
and anyone acting in concert with him. It is our conviction, however, that said
Injunction is illegal, legally unenforceable, a legally impermissible violation
of our civil rights to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly,
due process and freedom from slavery, and that the Injunction was obtained by
the Scientology cult by fraud, threat and other illegal means. We therefore believe
that we are legally and completely justified in webbing and making available the
information and documents on this site.
We hope that court papers on gerryarmstrong.org from Gerry Armstrong's litigations
with Scientology, or documents from related legal proceedings, assist attorneys
against the cult and assist its victims and opponents in their defenses from the
cult's legal predations, in seeking redress for its attacks or abuse, and in prosecuting
its criminal activities. We are aware that any help the site might be to people
abused or persecuted by Scientology or to these victims' attorneys is also prohibited
by the Injunction the cult obtained in California. Such a prohibition, we also
believe, is illegal and legally unenforceable, and we believe that we are morally
and legally justified in providing whatever assistance to wogs ® or to Scientologists
that the site can in any way be. There is no way, of course, of knowing if we
are assisting, so please let us know,
or send other materials to us that you think could help us help even more.
We are very aware that the Scientology organization is the most notorious abuser
of copyright law in the world. The cult uses this commercial law to suppress discussion,
prevent people from making informed decisions, and as a "legal" weapon
to attack and fair game critics of its abuses and criminality. Scientology is
no respecter of the fair use guarantee of copyrights, and consequently is no respecter
of the benefits the fair use doctrine gives to society; namely, teaching, scholarship,
criticism, comment, reporting and research. Scientology seeks to triumph, and
attain its goal of world domination, by suppressing or destroying these societal
The formulators of the fair use right of copyright could not have predicted
that any persons or organization would have the malevolent intent and hubris to
use commercial copyright law to hide their public libels of people or to keep
secret their manuals directing criminal acts against their human targets. Thus
there is no mention of limiting or curtailing tortious or criminal conduct as
a public benefit in national or international copyright acts. But it is for this
public good, as well as for the various copyright acts' stated benefits of education,
scholarship, criticism, research, etc., that we have included on this site complete
versions of certain Scientology copyrighted documents. We have included Scientology's
published attacks on our persons, its black PR disseminations, publications ordering
criminal conduct, and any other category of the cult's documents pursuant to our
fair use right granted by copyright law, and pursuant to our common law right
to self defense. See, e.g., " Squirrels,",
"Who is Gerry Armstrong, "
and "Dept of Govt Affairs ."
It is also needful to include some Scientology documents in their entirety to
eliminate any validity to the cult's charge, which it has the bad habit of making
with critics of its abusive or noxious policies or directives, that its statements
are being taken out of context.
In a number of instances our parodies require our use of Scientology's photographic
images because the humor in the parodies derives from that particular use, without
which they would neither be humorous nor parodies. See, e.g., this
page. Parodies and other jokes directed at Scientology are also included pursuant
to the fair use right of copyright law, and the right to self defense, since it
is the traditional, inalienable self defense right of the abused and oppressed
to poke fun at their abusers and oppressors. Our use of Scientology's images or
other materials is specifically encouraged by copyright law exactly as we have
In all instances where we have used Scientology's, or anyone else's, materials,
documents or images, we have mentioned their source and author, if these are known
or available. If we have failed to properly mention or credit the source and author
of any materials, documents or images on the site please advise us at email@example.com
and we will correct the omission immediately.

Scientology's copyright terrorism, see Caroline's
letter to Scientology cult leader David Miscavige in response to his cult's
attack on her own website.
