1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
FSM, OCA, Comm Course ...

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
Auditing others, ... exteriorized.

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
I really thought Scn had the answers to many questions.


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, something was wrong with O/W tech. Scn 'Justice' does
not work, took me a while to figure it out.

The 'stats' at the events were not right.

The 'stats' in the magazines are not right, they were
the same from year to year ... an emergency trend at best.

Living conditions sucked. RPF was worse than working
at a migrant labor camp, at the time I got about $6.25
per week alowance - that's less than a dollar a day.
sleep outdoors for months ... worked my ass off.

If you leave staff, I suggest you declare bankruptcy
instead of paying off your freeloader's debt. You
work 8-12 hours a day and study 3 hours as day and if
you leave, all that study on 'your own time' will cost
you $500+ per course. ... tell them to 'stuff it!'



5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
I though I was helping - wasted 5 years of my life as public
and staff and it took me years to 'recover' ... still working
at trying to recover myself.

I still suffer from bad 'fits' of anger at times.
(nothing like getting wrong items pushed on you)


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'?
SO staff -
Living conditions are the pits, be sure to ask how
much they make per week (now at $50/Week + food and
a bunk). The food for staff at Flag in the early 1980s
was so poor I was buying my own for a while ...



7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
Injustice. It was obvious the RTC was SP when I meet them.
The alter-is of sec-checking got me started on the way out.

Now, I have read too much ... The Mission holder's meeting transcripts, the lies under oath by DM.

Do you really want me to believe David Mayo and
all those others who made CSC work were all SP ?



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 CofS should be disbanded.

Some of the practices might prove usefull in a different
context (study tech and some processes), but without the
parnoia and mumbo-jumbo ... but this can not be acomplished
by the CofS, ... maybe in the FreeZone. But Scn has such
a bad name by now, it may end up only as a footnote in cult history.



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?
NEVER ! NEVER ! NEVER !



10. Any additional comments you would like to make?

Yes, I think in the final analysis RVY (Robert Vaughn Young)
had it right ... Scientology is like spousal abuse, you
keep living with it and try to 'make things go right' and
hope things will get better after the next session and you
are both elated and broke all at the same time ... all the
while you get more spun-in.

Google: 'scientology anger' and read the exit stories!
Google: 'scientology RPF' / 'RPFs RPF' (I WAS THERE)

You have no idea how badly your mind and soul can get
warped with this tech. Ron DeWolf was probably right,
it cracks your soul ...

Most of the staff are good people, just badly decieved.
But this is too 'complex' to explain in a few words.
