What Does Scientology Say About Gay People?

Today I watched Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath Season 2, Episode 6. In it is a clip of Laura Prepon claiming Scientology doesn’t say anything negative about gays.

Just last month I lost a Scientologist Facebook friend named Devin Angus, a boy I have known for 20 years, because he couldn’t handle the truth about Scientology. It turns out he was too much of a pussy to hear the truth about Scientology’s view on gay people.

With so much buzz about Scientology and gay people going around the web, I figured it’s time to set the record straight on what Scientology textbooks actually say about homosexuality.

An individual aberrated enough about sex will do strange things to be a cause or an effect. He will substitute punishment for sex. He will pervert others. Homosexuality comes from this manifestation and from the manifestation of life continuation for others. A boy whose mother is dominant will try to continue her life from any failure she has. A girl whose father is dominant will try to continue his life from any failure he has. The mother or the father were cause in the child’s eyes. The child elected himself successor to cause. Break this life continuum concept by running sympathy and grief for the dominant parent and then run off the desires to be an effect and their failures and the homosexual is rehabilitated. Homosexuality is about 1.1 on the tone scale. So is general promiscuity.

— Handbook for Preclears, page 64

A 1.1 is the most dangerously insane person in society, and is likely to cause the most damage. Because of the covert nature of this insanity, it is completely beside the point whether such a person is pronounced insane by any agency. On this level there is no concept of honor, decency or ethics; there is only desperate, death-bent thought of self and of damage to others.
Society can handle the angry man; it knows what to expect from him. Society can handle the apathy case; his insanity is obvious.
But the 1.1 is a skulking coward who yet contains enough perfidious energy to strike back, but not enough courage ever to give warning.
Such people should be taken from the society as rapidly as possible and uniformly institutionalized;
for here is the level of the contagion of immorality, and the destruction of ethics;
here is the fodder which secret police organizations use for their filthy operations.
One of the most effective measures of security that a nation threatened by war could take would be rounding up and placing in a cantonment, away from society, any 1.1 individual who might be connected with government, the military, or essential industry;
since here are people who, regardless of any record of their family’s loyalty, are potential traitors, the very mode of operation of their insanity being betrayal.
In this level is the slime of society, the sex criminals, the political subversives, the people whose apparently rational activities are yet but the devious writhings of secret hate.

— Science of Survival, page 63

The sexual pervert (and by this term dianetics, to be brief, includes any and all forms of deviation in Dynamic II such as homosexuality, lesbianism, sexual sadism, etc. and all down the catalogue of Ellis and Krafft-Ebing) is actually quite ill physically.

— Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, page 102

So there you have it in black and white. Straight from Lafayette Hubbard.

Homosexuals are sexual perverts and skulking cowards which are categorized as the slime of society, which in times of war (i.e. now) should be rounded up into military camps. In non-war times they should be institutionalized.

So I’m guessing then that Laura Prepon hasn’t read any of this. Why don’t you ask her?
