1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
a friend was involved and reccommended the Communication Course to me.

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
The comm course did help me in my work and I met many great people who in enjoyed and who told me of the many wins they had with training and auditing. My helping myself and others 'button' was pushed.

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
Yes, I was supervisor in an all women office and I wanted help in communicating with them to improve office production and spirit. I also wanted to better my self in anyway I could.

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?
Yes, there were things that I didn't agree with. I was a Christian and I did not agree with the idea that LRH was infallable and revered. I did not agree with the low pay for staff but my husband and I took turns working on staff or outside jobs, so we managed. I only experienced one Sea Org mission, and I thought it was ridiculous. They were running around in white space suits and acting nuts. I, personaly, was not affected by their visit because my stats were high, but I observed other staff in diry clothes, sleeping at the org, and very upset. The mission left the org in confusion with one girl pregnant.

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
We left the org shortly after their mission, as a mission owner paid our contract so we could go to work for him. We were told that the missions were much pleasanter to work in. This was true until the mission holder and his wife went to flag for OT levels. They came back very changed yelling at staff and acting quite different than when they went.

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'?
My husband and I were both on staff at LA org, and two missions. We attempted running our own mission for a short while, but gave it up to return to LA. I worked on ASHO staff for about a year. I worked in central files and put the addresses into IBM programs. LRH awarded me the SHSBC for completing this.

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
The final straw was when we were working in a mission and the owner went to Flag for OT levels. He returned totally beserk. He was yelling at everyone staff and students, alike. My husband and I quit and returned to LA. We both went to work for Delta Meters. I kept getting phone calls and mail from public back at the mission telling me of crazy things that the mission holder was doing. Like telling everyone to buy food, water, and guns because there was going to be a war and they would need these things. He told them to take the money for training and processing and instead buy these things. I sent reports and copy of their letters to the person in charge of missions and to every Ethics Officer I could think of. I think I even sent copies to the Gaurdians Office. My husband and I and a couple who had been writing me were ccComm Ev'd for 'Spreading Rumors about a Senior Scientologist'. Would you believe? I came out of the Comm Ev smelling like a rose because I had been awarded a 'green star' and could only be charged with High Crimes, but my husband and the other couple were charged and placed in a lower condition. As I was leaving the office one of the guys from the Gaurdians office stopped me and asked if I would like a job there. I said 'You have got to be kidding!' 'Four people who were only trying to handle a Phsycotic mission holder was just Comm Ev'd and the phsycotic is still running the mission! Now just where in hell is the justice in that?' I walked out of the office and out of Scientology.

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?
Oh, my God, yes. First it should stop calling itself a church. Then it should dismantle the SO. It should definitely stop the slave labor camps. David Mscavige should be caged and a thorough investigation should be held on the many people who have died in the hands or or by the hands of Scientology. I was so blessed that I left before this insanity began or at least before I knew about it, but I am horrified by the peoples stories that I read of what happenedd to them, and what is still going on.

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?
No, I would never have anything to do with Scientology. Most days I think it should be completely destroyed, but then I think there may be some lower level classes that could be useful to others. I am not sure the small benefit is worth it.

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
I do not understand why the powers that be are not investigating and arresting the 'church' members who are enslaving people, beating people up, and holding people against their will.
