1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
Drug user. I thought this was a way off drugs.

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
Promised some big things. High IQ, happiness, spiritual awareness. I ignored the rule, 'If it sounds to good to be true.' I bought it hook, line and sinker.

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
Drug use.

4. Did you see, experience, or hear about things that didn't seem right while you were in the Church of Scientology? What were they, and what convinced you to set aside your feelings?
I was forced under extreme duress to sign a staff contract. I nearly had a mental breakdown afterwards but I figured I was wrong for not wanting to join staff and help others so I joined.

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
To achieve Total Freedom as a spiritual being. I believed L Ron Hubbard when he said, 'Deliver what you promise.'

6. Were you staff or public? If staff, was it at a mission or an org? Were you ever in the Sea Org or OSA? Which unit? If not on staff, did you ever volunteer to 'help out'?
2 Years at LA Org.

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
When I realized that Scientology is much like Christianity, both require strong faith and beliefs. Both promise eternal life and understanding of how the universe was created but, of course, neither can prove their theories but in Scientology why should they have to when they have people like me buying every word of L Ron Hubbard. The main difference is in Scientology you find out why Christians belief the way they do. You find out that everyone on earth, including Tom Cruise, was implanted with false ideas and concepts, millions and yes even trillions of years ago. Really! I studied this stuff, this is what Scientologists think and believe. In Scientology you think these 'implants' are being fixed, that you’re becoming more aware of self and you “KNOW” that they are not being fixed in Christians which means if Scientology gains world power, Christianity along with every other religion on earth will be forced out of business. In Scientology you learn that the only way to go free as a spiritual being is by using and applying Scientology. There is no other way. You also learn that all other religions are dead ends, that they are continuing to push those false concepts of God and Gods, implanted trillions of years ago and continuing to enslave beings even further.
I left Scientology when I realized it too was the biggest dead end of them all. Scientology is the reverse of what I thought it was, you don’t gain greater and greater freedom and abilities, you are pushed deeper and deeper into the mud that you think is freeing you. It’s a very clever trap. I bought it without reservation for nearly 17 years. Without Scientology I can finally see the sky and it’s beautiful.


8. Do you think the Church of Scientology needs to change some of its practices? If so, what should be changed? How did those practices affect your life?
It needs to close its doors. No change would help this religion.

9. If the items you listed in the previous question were changed, would you consider rejoining or staying in the Church of Scientology? If so, why?
Never.

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
I saw Scientology from many different views, inside and out. Believe me when I say it's a con game, designed to drain you of your assets and giving you nothing in return.
