1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
My male parental unit (Father) was involved, and he forced me to be involved.

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
I found nothing appealing about Scientology. I wanted nothing to do with it.

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
This does not apply to me--- I never thought or believed Scientology could 'address' any of my problems. I alwas thought Scientology created my problems by breaking up my parents and taking my father away. My parents divorced and my father did not have any time to spend with me he was gone most of the time on 'missions' and 'courses'.

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?
Everything right from the start appeared 'wrong' to me. The other kids did not want to be there. Almost everyone hated the senseless labor, the worthless 'schooling,' the squalor we lived in, the lack of any adult supervision (my 'teacher' was the same age I was), the spoild food we were given, the bugs we slept with, the lack of heat in the winter. If given the choice, 99% of the Cadets would leave the Cadet Org instantly.

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
I left the day I turned 18 years old.

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'?
Staff.

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
I never wanted to be a Scientologist. I never wanted to participate in a Fascist organization. I saw only brutality, abuse, and hatred among Scientologists (between themselves and wogs).

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?
This list would be far too long to sit and type in. Chiefly I would like to see Scientology children treated like human beings and not like rats in a cage. I would like to see State health inspectors come in and correct the vast number of violations in dangerous Cadet living.

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?
Scientology is nothing more than a scam. This was apparent to me when I was first forced to participate, as this is apparent to most people there against their will. Scientology does not deliver what they claim they can. It is all a bunch of crap.

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
Cadets are constantly told that Scientology is a religion, but there was no hint of religion in it. It was all commercial.
