The Church of Scientology International’s formal 1023 submission to the IRS in 1993 states that CST can take back the advanced tech and religious marks under these conditions:
My proposal is that concerned Scientologists should file a lawsuit to compel CST, its Special Directors, Trustees, and Directors to take back the advanced tech and religious marks from RTC due to the damage David Miscavige has caused to the Scientology religion.
David Miscavige has caused serious damage to the Church in many significant ways, particularly by the massive public exposure his physical assaults upon senior Church executives; his waste of money on paying PI’s for 25 years to spy on Pat Broeker; his numerous documented lies and falsehoods; and his Squirrel Busters operation that has arguably placed the Church’s 501(c)3 in serious jeopardy.
Why is CST not acting in a way it told the IRS it could? Did CST lie to the IRS or is the CST Board merely a self-perpetuating rubber stamp for David Miscavige?
The Miscavige-ordered Squirrel Busters Operation was morally reprehensible, reckless, obnoxious, unnecessary, and has proven to be destructive to the Church — and yet the Squirrel Busters have now become the global face of the Church of Scientology and of L. Ron Hubbard — and this while CST breaches it core duties of care, loyalty, and obedience as Judge Gerhard Gessell articulated in the landmark Sibley Hospital Case. And indeed, a case could be made that the rubber stamp boards of RTC and CSI are engaging in the exact same pattern.
The Church of Scientology cannot have it both ways: The Church is either governed as it represented to the IRS, or, the Church of Scientology is the alter ego of David Miscavige.
If the Church of Scientology is governed as it represented to the IRS, then the IJC should immediately declare David Miscavige an SP and order him off Church premises.
However, if the Church of Scientology is actually the alter ego of David Miscavige then the Church should immediately lose its 501(c)3 status.
