I guess Harold Bezazian is trying to do more Scientology services, as he's now written a letter which RFW has posted, obviously trying to decrease the fact that Scientology breaks up families, and decrease their abuses of medicine. Please let me clarify what did happen, and to the OSA floormats, spare us your endless comments. This is to Harold. He can answer, or not. I doubt he will, as he's too afraid of the critics. Great for an OT 8, huh?
Answer to Harold Bezazian: Former Husband and his False Story about Me on RFW
Here's the story, with my comments between:
To Religious Freedom Watch:
I was married to Tory Christman for 26 years. She left me in July 2000 while I was away on a business trip.
<As I told Harold many times, "I didn't ever leave you: I LEFT THE CULT OF SCIENTOLOGY".>
When I spoke to her the night of July 19, 2000, she said she was leaving for a while and would be home in a week or two. She lied repeatedly about where she was going, and refused to talk to me any further about what was going on. When I asked her why she was leaving, she told me to call our friends and they'd tell me what was happening. She said she had to go and hung up.
<I didn't lie; I just said I couldn't tell him who I was going to see. As it was, I was trying to make a transition OUT of Scientology, and I knew Harold, who was basically born into Scientology, would not agree with me. >
I called our friends and they told me that Tory was going to Florida and would be changing planes in Chicago the next morning.
<<And how did "Our friends" Know that I was going to Florida? I guess ol Harold doesn't care about that personal intrusion into my life, but I sure did!>>
I drove to Chicago and stopped at my sister's house. She said she'd had a long talk with Tory and Tory told her that she was leaving me,
<<I didn't say ever that I was leaving my husband: I said I was leaving Scientology. He can pretend forever that his version is true, but he and I both know I spent months trying to get him to LOOK and not divorce me over this. My guess is he or his new wife are now trying to 'get services" and part of their PTS Handling is to "Handle Tory". Ya......sure pal.>>
saying she was leaving Scientology and was unhappy with our relationship.
<<I never said I was unhappy with our relationship, and my leaving had N O T H I N G to do with leaving him, but everything to do with leaving Scientology. Again, this is more of the attempted "Handle".trying to steer this OFF of what it really is: My leaving Scientology, and also, that Scientology breaks up families, which it continuously does>
Tory also told my mother, step-father and brother that she was leaving me,
<<LOL>>>>>>>>Harold doesn't have a Step-Father, and his father was dead when I left. Had he been alive, he would have cheered me on, as his OT 7 "Win" was this: "Now I can spend *MY* money with whatever Charity I want". I didn't tell his Mother I was leaving him, or his brother. That's a flat out lie.>>
saying it was no big deal as we weren't getting along anyway. (All this from a woman who told me two weeks earlier that I'd thrown her "the best birthday party ever and that I was the most wonderful husband in the world.")
<<This is truly sad. I never said that, period. I'm very sorry to hear that my x-husband has stooped this low. Obviously Scientology is on him. Guess what? It isn't working, as usual. Lies never work, didn't you know that by now?>>
I drove to the airport and met Tory as she was changing planes. I told her I'd cancelled the rest of the business trip and wanted to go to a resort and talk with her and find out what was going on.
<<Ok, let's get the facts straight. Yes, he did arrive at the Chicago airport as I was changing lanes, telling me he just happened to be there. (Right!) Then he told me, "We need to go on a vacation". I knew what that meant, as I knew what I'd done with Bill Yaude. Because I had signed a waiver promising to NEVER tell anyone, including husband, friends, Executives of Scientology, Ethics officers, Auditors, etc.I'd never told him about the Top Secret OSA Int Mafia, but I knew THEY knew, And suddenly their 'bird' was flying the coop! I knew most probably they'd lock me up in some cabin, and do the Introspection Rundown on me, as they did with Lisa
McPherson, and I knew Yaude would tell him it was the right thing, and I knew HE trusted Yaude as much as I had, until he screwed me. Thus, I said, "No...I need to go to this on my own, and then we'll sort it all out". I felt like I was making a transition out of Hell....and needed to get strong and clear before I presented it all to him. That's the facts>>
She told me she did not want to be a Scientologist anymore and that she was leaving the Church. I said, "Okay, you don't have to be a Scientologist if you don't want to, just don't leave me. Let's go away by ourselves." She told me, "No way, my ticket is paid for, I have to go." She then threatened to have me arrested if I "bothered" her again.
<<Facts: After I said "No---I need to go by myself and sort this out".OSA arrived in the airport. I was truly pissed then and said, "I thought you were just here??" This was a total lie, and ODS came at me with a pile of papers I had to read.
IT was at that time that I said, "IF I have to I'll call the police: I AM Getting in that plane!" (( Remember: He's leaving out that the Vice President of Scientology had met me at LAX, told me, "We know where you're going and you're not going to see those people". Also, she followed me around for nearly an hour while we got another ticket, as my plane had been cancelled. Earlier than that, my van had been *anonymously* cancelled, so I'd had enough of these OSA manipulation techniques))>>
I then told her I'd get a ticket and fly with her and we could talk. She repeated that she'd have me arrested if I didn't leave her alone. I took a later flight to Florida and found her in an airport hotel.
<<True....I did say that, as he was there with OSA, which he manages to leave out each time>>>
I tried to talk to her again in private but she refused, saying she'd only talk to me in the presence of her new friends. She again threatened to call security if I insisted on talking with her away from her new friends. I took a room and invited her up for dinner and a movie. She said "maybe later" but she never called me.
The next day I called her to talk and she said she was sleeping and asked if I could bring her some toiletries. When I went to set them outside her room, the door of the next room opened and she was sitting on the bed talking to one of her new friends. She was in her night gown. She didn't want to talk to me and she got angry when I questioned the motives of her new friends. I talked to her once more that night with her friends waiting in the next room
<<For some reason this man has a HUGE hang up on my sitting and talking with some people in my flannel nightgown that covered me from head to toe. He leaves out that I'd just left ALL of Scientology, and felt practically nude telling my story on the Internet. Somehow I felt far more covered up than he seems to think, but then, he hadn't gone through what I had, either. Whatever, it was a mute point that he constantly tries to make into something. We who were there laugh at it, as it was such a nothing deal. Also, I did try to talk with him, but he only wanted to watch a movie. I found that amazing. I was literally transforming out of this mind control cult, and he wanted to go watch a movie?>>
After that night, she was out of touch for weeks. Whenever she called me she needed money and her epilepsy medicine, both of which I arranged for her. As a side note, Tory has complained to reporters that the Church ordered her to stop taking her medication. This is a complete fabrication. She wanted to quit taking the medicine because she didn't like it,
<<That is SUCH a lie.....I'm astounded. He wasn't even there, I didn't even know Harold Bezazian when I was ordered to get off of my medication, but I certainly didn't do it because I didn't like the medication! Right, I wanted to roll around in the Scientology orgs having Grand Mal Seizures.....sure pal. He knows the truth about this totally and utterly as it came up eternally while I was "in" Scientology. Why he's lying about it now, I do not know, but I'm sorry for him.>>
but she was never told to do so by the Church at any time since I'd met her in 1974.
<<The point I speak of mainly about being ordered off my medication was when I was in the Sea Org, years before I even knew Harold, and yes, I was most definitely told I had to get off of my medication, to be in the Sea Org, and he knows this. I did fight the entire BS about Epilepsy for years, including Flag trying to throw me off the Flag Land base, which he knows of, also, and won't admit. My very fight about this at Flag helped his very own Mother do OT 8, as they had told her she had to get off of her heart medication to go onto the Freewinds. After I got this medical issue cleared up via RTC, she got an Ok to do with, on her medication. He knows this very well >>
In fact, she was told by the Church and by a Scientologist doctor that it was not necessary for her to stop taking her medicine.
<<Yes, ~~after~~ a HUGE fight I had ..taking it all the way to RTC, and after one month, in 1989, (which he was there for all of this)..finally it came down I was OK to do OT 4-8, and a Senior C/S Int Bulletin was written, with me as the first example, which he knows, too. This is amazing that he is lying for Scientology---it shows what it means to be an OT 8!>>
Several months later Tory called me saying she was going to move to Florida permanently and was coming home to pack. She wanted her car serviced so she could drive it cross country. When she finally arrived home, she showed up with her friend Nancy Many who helped her set up an inexpensive divorce agreement by recommending we utilize "We the People" - a business which does this. Tory made the appointment and she wanted me to be the petitioner, as she was going to move to Florida and it'd be easier for them to contact me.
<<Nooooooooooooooo.Harold said he was divorcing me as he insisted, "You left me" and refused to discuss what I had learned, at all. He wanted the divorce, and when she said "Someone has to initiate it" I said I wasn't going to, so Harold did. It had nothing to do with me going to Florida>>
After helping her pack for a month, she decided she wasn't going to go. She thought we could live in the house and split the rent. I agreed to this in the hopes of repairing our marriage. But in the six months we lived under this arrangement, I never saw a dime from her. I covered all the rent, utilities, phone, food, etc. During this time she tried several jobs, but never made a go of it. I helped her and coached her and set up a financial plan for her, but to no avail.
<< In the 6months we lived together, I admit I was quit a mess. I was crying all the time, trying to get my husband to realize I hadn't left him; I'd left the CULT of Scientology! He refused to listen, ever. We even had a garage sale and as I sat inside crying, he rapidly sold off all of the things we loved. He'd cut all of his pictures out of our Wedding Album, and sat outside burning God knows what that he was trying to hide. Later I realized he'd burned all of my receipts, he'd given or sold all of our E-meters (Which I never got a dime for), and all of our LRH Library, again, which I never got a dime for. No, I didn't pay for rent, but he never asked, and as my husband he always had paid for it, and still was my husband. I did give him half of what I got for selling my Grand piano, which was I believe $2,000. He never coached me on any financial plan. He left me..without any alimony, which he told me, "I'd rather go to prison than give you a dime". He finally agreed to assist me with Health insurance money, and this I am grateful for.
She finally left permanently.
<<*** I*** am still living in the very house we lived in for 20 years. He obviously left me, or he'd be here, wouldn't he? Harold Bezazian is re-married and I believe his new wife is on the Bridge in Scientology, which may be what this is all about, who knows?>>
She now has been quoted a number of times over the years as saying I left her. It is time to put this lie to rest once and for all.
<<You shall never put that to rest, as it's true: You left me, and did so without ever even really asking me what happened.>>
She left me and our 26-year marriage with no notice at all and resisted all attempts to put our relationship back together.
<<And when was that? When you were with OSA in Chicago, or Bill Yaude in Clearwater? Come on, man!>>
That is a truth she can never run away from no matter how far she goes.
<< Harold Bezazian..I wish you well. You can post as many lies about me to try to handle whatever Scientology says they need, but you and I know the truth. I know this, as an "OT"....I doubt you can even remember the truth. You will believe what you need to believe, so you can do Scientology. How pathetic is that?>>
<<Good night, Harold Bezazian.and good luck!>>
Happy to be free From Scientology!

Since Harold Bezazian has decided to post info on the net, I have decided to post some Harold video. This selection is the footage I shot in 1999 at a picket of a Celebrity Center gala event.
I haven't edited out his words or taken him out of context. This is all the raw footage I have of him at this event. I think he comes off well, even though he had to lie about his name and say he was J.R. That seems a bit non-confront.
I like Harold. I always did. We exchange pleasantries on camera that I believe were honest and sincere. I'm sorry he divorced Tory and disconnected the way he did. I am very sorry he felt he had to write up a malacious, untruthful KR on Scientology's behalf.
The dial up version will be posted later today.
