Scientology-Narconon vs. Catholic Church

 

The ongoing controversy concerning the Church of Scientology, Narconon Trois-Rivieres and now potentially involving the Catholic Oblates (Nuns), in Quebec, Canada, may be heading to the courts; at the discretion of the Catholic Oblates.

Legal Land Registry documents arrived in the writer’s email box recently, with connotations of “Opening King Tut’s Tomb” being the expression of the day. More than eighty-eight pages of Property Sale Agreements, transfers of ownership, and lease agreements from an anonymous source scattered the desk top. Most were in French, but many of the pertinent legal issues, with potential litigation ramifications, were informally translated into English.

On Nov. 19, 2001, OMMI (Catholic Oblates) sold their property to two private individuals who are Scientologists, Antonino (Tony) Putorti and Mario Desrochers, at less than market value. In a struggling Quebec economy, why would the Oblates sell a massive commercial property capable of housing more than one hundred persons, far below market value?

A special sale agreement condition number four on pages 6-7, was the bomb shell that echoed through over the bold, translated text. Informal translation:

“The buyer or any tenant or nominee or company that operates within the premises included in the present sale promise to exercise no activity in connection with the Church of Scientology, and this in or on all buildings and/or grounds included in the present sale.  They also promise not to sell any of the property acquired by this sale to the Church of Scientology directly or indirectly, under penalty of lawsuit for damages and interest by the seller [the nuns].”

An additional special sale condition eight on page seven, specifically states:

“The seller, Ommi (Oblates) is aware that the buyer will lease the premises included in this sale or part of them to an organization known as Narconon, given that the nature of this organization must be not-for-profit.”

As of Aug. 28, 2001, the property was evaluated at $727,000 by the City of Trois-Rivières. The sale price is $575,000 ($365,000 cash, $210,000 by 42 monthy payments of $5,000 plus 5% interest calculated and paid monthly).

On November 19, 2001, the Sale Agreement of 7525, 7535, 7555, 7595 Parent Boulevard, Trois-Rivières by, “Les Oblates missionnaires de Marie Immaculée” (the Oblate Missionaries of Mary Immaculate) to Antonino (aka Tony) Putorti and Mario Desrochers was completed.

Antonino (Tony) Putorti married since Sept. 15, 1984 to Lucille Proulx, Mario Desrochers married since May 7, 1983 to Micheline Lecavalier.

On February 2, 2005, Mario Desrochers sold, for $210,000, his 50% share to Lucille Proulx (30%) and Cynthia Putorti (20%). Antonino Putorti ceded 10% to his wife, Lucille Proulx. Proportions of property ownership after this transaction: Antonino Putorti 40%; Lucille Proulx 40%; Cynthia Putorti 20%.

The subject property was then leased to the scientology entity Narconon Trois-Rivieres, contravening the sale agreement. The lease agreement was for a period of ten years commencing November 19, 2001 and maturing on October 18, 2011.

On February 27, 2007, the subject property was sold by Antonio[sic] Putorti, Lucille Proulx, Cynthia Putorti sold 7525 – 7595 Parent Boulevard to Thetasoft Inc., represented by Antonino Putorti, president and secretary, and Lucille Putorti. The sale price being $575,000 ($340,547.45 paid by the May 23, 2006 mortgage, $234,452.55 to be paid by installments interest-free).

On March 6, 2009, a loan in the amount of $1,284,000 was granted by Caisse Desjardins Les Estacades to Thetasoft Inc. (registered as number 1147484001 on Feb. 26, 1998), represented by Antonino Putorti, president and secretary, and Lucille Proulx, shareholder, at 15% annual interest.

Several properties were used as collateral, including the one Narconon Trois-Rivieres leases from Thetasoft. As of July 1, 2008, the City of Trois-Rivieres evaluated the subject property for tax purposes at $765,000.

Mr. Antonio Putorti, president of Thetasoft, is no virgin to controversy or being stained with attempts to bending laws and government regulations. Antonio took over ownership of Golf des Forges in Trois-Rivieres on or about February 7, 2007 and ended up in hot water when he introduced as a condition and part of an employment contact, that employees accept L. Ron Hubbard Scientology administrative policy. Employees who refused to participate were dismissed and filed complaints followed by out of court settlements.

Executives at Narconon Trois-Rivieres and the Church of Scientology in Montreal vehemently deny that Narconon is connected to scientology in any way whatsoever. On July 13, 2010, Marc Bernard, Narconon director stated to Le Nouvelliste Newspaper, “We are not a religious propaganda centre or whatnot.” Mr. Bernard then admits to using scientology doctrines at Narconon Trois-Rivieres to help employees who are distracted by oppression. He states, “This is when negative things happen to us and this is why the method encourages “disconnection.”

Disconnect strips away a person’s freedom to associate with any friend or family member who speaks against Scientology or Narconon.

In the Le Nouvelliste Marc Bernard states he has never hidden the fact that the writings of L. Ron Hubbard inspire the method used by Narconon but without in any way turning Narconon into a religious recruitment centre.

When one weighs the entire Narconon program with the scientology doctrines and teachings at the church of scientology, it is clear that Narconon Trois-Rivieres is scientology in every aspect.

In 2009 Scientology Dianetics books were given to patients by members of the Church of Scientology Montreal. Scientology videos were brought in to Narconon by ABLE Canada, the entity which charges licence fees to Narconon Trois-Rivieres. Scientology anti-pharmaceutical and anti-psychiatry

Videos were brought in by scientology church members for Narconon patients to watch in the dining room.

Scientology E-Meters were also at Narconon Trois-Rivieres. An E-meter is an electronic device used during Dianetics and Scientology auditing. The Church of Scientology restricts the use of the E-meter to trained Scientologists, treating it as “a religious artifact. At Narconon, one such E-Meter was used on a regular basis by a Case Supervisor in self-auditing sessions and another E-Meter was used by two staff members at the Narconon premises in a Scientology auditing session.

While nearing completion of one patient’s Narconon program, the patient was forced to view a Scientology video in the executive board room with a Narconon Executive present during the viewing.

When some patients complete their Narconon program, cases of Scientology books are given to the graduate. Several cases of these books were readily available to potential recruits.

Clearly, Narconon Trois-Rivieres is Scientology with only the corporate entity name that separates the two. Back in 2001 when the Oblates sold the property to Scientologist, Antonino (Tony) Putorti, it was easy to disguise Narconon as a simple not-for-profit organization which operated as an addiction treatment facility helping society cure addiction. To the Oblates, this probably seemed like a noble cause and thus sold the subject property at a reduced price to facilitate a charitable work.

The key agreement to the property sale and purchase is;

“The buyer or any tenant or nominee or company that operates within the premises included in the present sale promise to exercise no activity in connection with the Church of Scientology, and this in or on all buildings and/or grounds included in the present sale.  They also promise not to sell any of the property acquired by this sale to the Church of Scientology directly or indirectly, under penalty of lawsuit for damages and interest by the seller [the nuns].”
