How does Scientology view deprogrammers and groups that attempt to force people to denounce their chosen religion?

So-called “deprogrammers,” are better described as depersonalizers who kidnap others for profit. Their methods include brainwashing, imprisonment, food/sleep deprivation and various forms of torture. Such activities are clearly against the principles held by Scientologists and have been proven to be against the law as well.
