1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
Book one

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
I felt that's what I'm have been looking for

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
nothing special

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?
poor living conditions, wrongdoing, unfair treatment, blocking communications, people with a low IQ, extremely high prices, people became fanatic etc.

I told myself that maybe I am too critical and I blamed the enemies of the Church


5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
I was and am sure the tech works

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'?
I was a mission staff for years

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
I had difficulties in my private life and first time ever I felt I needed some help but nobody bothered to help me. Meanwhile I saw the outpoints. Finally I met a friend of mine who introduced me the Free Zone (loose network of ex-members)

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?
a.) Yes,I do
b.) It should be changed from bottom to top. Especially they would need a really honest management.
c.) I feel that the Church claims a monopoly over the tech which was intended to be free. On the other hand a lot of honest people frown at me if I tell them I am a scientologist. That is due to the corrupt activities of the church.


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?
Yes (q #5.)

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
I don't mean that scientology is a religion. In my opinion, it is a philosophy or a movement.
