1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
Someone handed me a free magazine =the Auditor

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
Seemed at first to be a psycho Therapy

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
Shy with girls,not that confident in my self, felt victimized by peers at times, a certain relative was mean to me borrowing money without repaying Also,was manipulative and struck me a few times. ( Sort of like a mini-Hubbard!) Also when I smoked marijuana would get paranid and fearful

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?
Looking back to 1972, seeing the big picture. & the forest for the trees. My relatively miniscule involvement,: As follows=
When I mentioned that I majored in Psychology the success officer Joe Saia, looked at me as if I had too heads. (And I had no idea why.)I looked up the word 'schizophrenia' in the dictionary from my psychology days. All the while thinking of Hubbard as a split personality. That must have gone over Big. (Ha ha) A success story of mine mentioned that The training routines were good like yoga, a mental excercise. When it was Not posted on the board. They said we don't mention Other Practices, Oh. Also, I got a ride home. And the young girl insisted 'Where is your Bank?' meaning saving bank (money)I bailed out of the car. Began to walk. But she drove me home. And the next day dismissed it 'Oh thats just our High pressure sales drill' When I joined staff for one week, then the guy pinned my named high up on the bulliten board with $750 written next to it. And said we called your savings bank they are staying opened so you can today (Wednesday) buy an intensive of auditing. I said not today but I have a surprise for you. Intending to buy it in my own sweet time. So the first question on the e-meter was Not one that would enlighten me.BUT 'How could you harm LRH or MSH?' My reply was 'To sink his ship with a torpedo!' Hey you asked me So I told you. Then once I was asked while on the meter 'Are you with the F.B.I.?' Answered 'No thank goodness' Also, they said to yell as loud as you could to an ashtray 'STAND UP' Two sea Orgers entered and said people passing by will get the wrong impression. That is bad P, R, public relations. I thoght well I asked ahead of time are you sure I should yell as loud as possible. Yes. They said.



5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
To find out more about their mysterious beliefs. Stolen from various elsewheres.

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 for a short time as an expediter. But I would not sit at the desk and log-in peoples names and the time! I just typed customers and how much they spent. Or retrieved people from their beds to go to the org. No never would volunteer to hand out leaflets at the baseball game.

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
My aunt went with me to complain how it was wrong to be involved in Scientology. The person needed to control So he said 'Mrs Smith look at that wall' When I went to the next room to get my jacket. I saw a TAPE-RECORDER running! (Must have been the Guardians Ofiice listening in to an aunt looking at a wall) Next I temporarily snapped out of the hypnotism.because My relative showed up unannounced Demanding a Refund. I said I am afraid of relative in that he had hit me. The recruiter said when you talk into your hand do the Words harm that hand? Notice that My relative who hit me was a kind of equal to Hubbard. More or less. So I could claim that I quit the church because I am afraid of that relative. And he insists I get a refund. So I did get the $750 back...

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?
N/A

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?
N/A

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?

I was in the mall recently and I thought I would break their balls, And say 'Why dont you tell your customers about the RPF concentration camp hard labor camp. The Scientologists called security.. I said I'm not afraid of you Or security. As I walked away. (More electronic devices not a tape recorer but a cell phone) Taking my PHOTO!. They cannot discover who I am in order to harrass me!! As a second photo was taken . Close enuf for me to slap the phone out of his hand. I eventually got the phone. But After the scientologist struggled with me and got me in a Bear Hug from behind. What's that T.R.6 The young girl Scientologist rushed over by now and kept following me. I repeated loudly 'Get the hell away from me!' I uncharacteristically threw the phone over the balcony. And the young girl called security to say 'A guy threw my friends phone over the balcony' -Boo hoo The cult can afford to buy millions of cell-phones.I ran as fast as I could and drove home I was out-of-breath for an hour. A successful Operation by me.
It seems that it is classical brainwashing -2nd generation.In that you are sick and forbidden to criticize. Yet Hubbard is infallible. So what does that make Miscarriage. If he never wrote any books. Or I would assume never went OT 8-producing insanity. I feel vary proud of the picketing going on recently worldwide!!! As I am their identity needs to remain a secret... Thanks for this oppurtunity
