1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
Found a 'Way to Happiness' booklet on a bus bench as I was walking by.

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
The book seemed to be logical & helpful.

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
Well...I was in bad shape--drugs/alcohol/depression. Needed something but didn't know what. So I walked into the local mission and saw some happy faces & thought there might be something to this.

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?
Well....lets see. The missionholders psychotic 5 year old that would walk on the edge of the roof!! (he was OT of course!) The filthy mission conditions. That HIDEOUS sculpture of Hubbard(looked evil). A supervisor who would throw a dictionary at students. That supervisor who 'pulled in' cancer and died without a mention(staff thought she deserved it!) It seems as though they all smoke!! Of course they are 'at cause' over cigarettes. Those MANY hours long sessions with registrars--('well do you have another credit card? We can get you another one! How about your parents? You want to go free dont you???') The OT 8 who being 'in power on all 8 dynamics' was scared to death of dogs! (hilarious). That other OT 8 whose apartment(!)(many 10's or even 100's of thousands of $$$ to the church forced her to stay there) was a filthy pigstye---with out of control, hateful kids. No questioning of the 'tech' and especially 'LRH' who was thought of as god! (Look up the Hymn of Asia...) Disregarding medical science. Poisonous amounts of vitamins used in the purif. Physical force used to subdue a course member from leaving (they call it blowing).

I could go on and on and on and on.


5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
The auditing did help. Of course I had NEVER had ANY sort of counseling/therapy before Scn so I thought it was amazing! Felt happier than ever but always had those nagging doubts(see previous). The doubts got bigger & bigger. But my registrar former husband (who was working at the mission when we met...) managed to convince me time & time again to stay. I must have 'blew' 10 times.

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'?
Public. Did occasionally help out with filing.

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
The screaming of a supervisor & Director of Tech & Case Supervisor Int. in my face telling me I was a 'FUCKING ASSHOLE' to want to take time off course. 'How dare I (having spent 2 YEARS on the same altered 'Golden Age of Tech' course) be so selfish???'
I said 'fine no problem' went back to course. At 10pm left all my coursebooks & E-meter there & NEVER came 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?
The auditing is good. The auditors are caring people. But the whole thing is ultimately doomed. OTIII is on the web. Xenu and his renegades. (I think LRH spelled xenu with an X instead of a Z for because it looks more 'exotic'--was a science fiction writer after all...)
THE WHOLE FUTURE OF PLANET EARTH IS BASED ON THE 'MEMORIES'(WHOLE TRACK) OF ONE MAN! WITH NO SCIENTIFIC CORROBORATION GIVEN OR ALLOWED!
This ALONE will bring about the end of Scn. It shows the world in graphic detail the LUNACY and DEEP PSYCOSIS of the OT levels. The 'NOTS' are on the web. Lisa McPherson is on the web. The Fishman afidavit is on the web.
Whats amazing is that they FORBID public and ESPECIALLY staff to look at the internet concerning Scn. They are told they could DIE viewing the OT levels before they are ready.
Well its been 5 years now---I'm still alive!!
Give me a break!!


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?
As I say--OTIII is a ridiculous lie. This is what ALL Scn's aspire to acheive. How can something survive that is built on the delusions of a paranoid man?? Its a huge house of cards.
The only thing they could possibly do is make EVERYTHING open and available and non-secret and let the public judge for themselves. Of course that could never happen as LRH stricty forbid ANY scrutiny.
Scutiny would reveal truth.
And truth would be the end of Scn.


10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
I'm just angry that I became so caught up in such a ridiculous cult for so long. The truth became so obvious that I had no option but to leave.
WWW.XENU.NET will give you so much more you need to know than I could possibly give.
'Pay no attention to that man behing the curtain' indeed.
The internet is HERE.
Sorry Lafayette Ron Hubbard.
