1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
I bought 'Book One' at a grocery store, found it fascinating,.....looked up the nearest dianetics org.

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
I was only interested in Dianetics. When I found out it was at a place called The 'CHURCH' of Scientology, I almost didn't go in.

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
Nothing in particular. I just had a general interest in mental and spiritual sciences.

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?
Not at first, but within the first year I saw all of the above.

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
I met and married a scientologist woman.

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 did all kinds of volunteer work, and was on staff for a short time,.less than a year.

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
I found most scientologists, including my wife to be cold,compassionless,money worshipping,robotic zombies.

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?
Drop the 'Church'from the name and go back to being the modern science of mental health.offer the services at a price that non wealthy people can afford.

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?
I would not join a 'Church' of Scientology, but would be interested in the techniques that they offer now,.if it was reasonably priced.

no
