We in the Church of Scientology wish to make it clear that our religious prison located at the Church’s International Base (Int Base) in San Jacinto, California is a place of uncompromising ecclesiastical discipline where errant Sea Org members are rehabilitated for their own good and that of Scientology:
The Tampa Bay Times has made a big deal out of Scientology’s comprehensive program of religious interrogation, torture, and imprisonment and we in RTC see this as just another Psych attack on the Church of Scientology.
Any thinking person conversant with religious history will understand the need for religious dungeons and torture in order to handle Church members most at risk of becoming heretics or apostates. Scientology’s prisons, its RPF system, KR’s, Introspection Rundown, and other forms of torture and Inquisition exist to save “At Risk Scientologists” from falling away from the Truth. Indeed, COB RTC David Miscavige famously saved Scientologist Lisa McPherson from becoming a bitter defrocked apostate by use of the fully legal and highly effective Tech of Scientology Applied Religious Torture :
The Tampa Bay Times does not understand religious history and, as a result, has once again overreacted in its latest attack on the Church of Scientology.

Indeed, we in the Church are looking at a new Enhanced RPF modeled on the Catholic Inquisition:
