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

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
The promise of better communiction skills, helping others

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
Shyness, low self-esteem

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?
Verbal abuse, threats, lies, unethical behavior

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
I truly cared about many people in the org and thought I could help make things better

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 for a very short time, staff for almost a year at the org

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
Couldn't stand that my free will and logic was being suppressed on a daily basis. Also the general disintegration of my loved ones who were connected with the church

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 complete lack of compassion and refusal to treat others with respect by those in 'upper management' should be stopped

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, too many lies and falsehoods within the philosophy of the church

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
I have come to appreciate my time at the org. I learned a great deal about what I wanted my priorities in life to be, to always trust my logic, and that I don't have to put up with abuse to achieve enlightenment

BTW - I thank all those who were kind to me in Austin in the early 90's and hope they found a way to escape, as I did. Please feel free to email me if you like.
