Scientology Spokesman Confirms Xenu Story

Scientology Spokesman Tommy Davis Confirms Xenu Story

Los Angeles, CA - After years of dismissing the story as false, Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis has confirmed that the story of mankind's origins involving an alien overlord named Xenu is indeed authentic Scientology teaching.

In the exclusive interview with KESQ News Channel 3 reporter[1], Nathan Baca, Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis was asked about the story of Xenu, known to senior Scientologists as part of "Operating Thetan Level III", or "OT III" for short. Davis denied the story at first (as he has done in the past), stating that these were claims "forwarded by anti-Scientologists."

When Baca began reading from a book written by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard that mentions the Xenu story, Davis became defensive, admitting that the story is indeed authentic, but confidential. He then accused Nathan Baca of religious hate, saying that a non-Scientologist asking about Scientology's core beliefs is an "offensive concept", and that Baca was "just forwarding an agenda of hate."

Tommy Davis previously denied the Xenu story, asking CNN reporter John Roberts if it "sounded ridiculous" and saying the story was "unrecognisable" to him[3]. The Xenu story has also been denied by actor Tom Cruise and other famous Scientologists [6]. In that same interview with John Roberts, Davis claimed that anti-Scientology protesters known as "Anonymous" had sent death threats and bomb threats to Scientology "orgs" around the world. When Roberts revealed that the FBI had told CNN that they had no reason to believe Anonymous was responsible for the alleged threats, Mr. Davis stuttered, and claimed that the alleged threats were being investigated by local law enforcement.

The organization is well-known for aggressive public relations and media handling tactics, such as claiming threats of violence against itself. New York journalist, Paulette Cooper, the author of the famous critical book "The Scandal of Scientology", was framed for making bomb threats by Scientology in the 1970's. "Operation Freakout" was revealed by the FBI after raids on Scientology headquarters in Washington and Los Angeles in which were seized detailed plans for the false bomb threats. In 2007, the Church of Scientology in the UK alleged that the BBC sent "terrorist death threats" to the organization[5].

A leaked recording exists of Hubbard giving a lecture[2] on OT III, as well as a hand-written document summarizing the Xenu story written in Hubbard's own handwriting[4]. Hubbard instructed his followers not to mention OT III to any non-Scientologist and Scientologists who themselves have not reached the level, ostensibly because Hubbard wrote that people are liable to fall victim to pneumonia and die if exposed to the Xenu story before they have completed the preparatory steps in Scientology. Scientologists pay up to $350,000 to reach OT III. Those that reach OT III are required to have a safe in their home and to transport the OT III materials in a locked briefcase [7].
