                       Albuquerque Org is sooo downstat.




Last night our anon cell raided the org just before course started. There was MAYBE one person on course from what I could tell.

They started parking on the side of the org a while back so their front parking lot is always empty except for the mandatory yellow van they use to try and block the window. So we moved over to the side because we knew they were all entering through the back door on our protest days.

So last night they had all parked in front thinking it was safe. When we pulled up someone RAN to the window and closed the blinds to the course room! lol

We even moved to the front of their building so we could look in the window. Someone started pointing and gesturing like crazy when they saw us. We figured it would just be a matter of time til the cops arrived. But no cops this time. We stayed the 20 feet away so we were legal.

I figure from the info I've been given that at least 4 of the cars there were staff members. That leaves one car that may be a public.

I'd say that we crashed their stats but I don't think they have any stats. Can stats go in the negative?

Boy have things changed since I was in.

          Seattle Times Article on the Cult's latest Empty Org




 Originally Posted by Janet I. Tu Seattle Times Reporter

Scientology representatives say the building campaign is in response to explosive growth — though others have questioned whether the church in the U.S. is indeed growing. Church leaders say their increased numbers are because people are searching for something, and/or are curious about the religion, which has garnered much publicity — and controversy — in recent years.

Actor Tom Cruise's rant against psychiatry several years ago highlighted the religion's opposition to much of that medical field. The New York Times and St. Petersburg Times have run stories reporting some who've left Scientology have accused church leader David Miscavige of physically attacking staff members. The St. Petersburg Times recently reported that a dozen women said the culture of Scientology's religious order, the Sea Organization, pushed them or women they knew to have abortions.

...

One study — the 2008 American Religious Identification Survey — found that the number of Scientologists in the U.S. fell from 55,000 in 2001 to 25,000 in 2008.


http://www.mediacurves.com/Religion/J7477-Scientology/Index.cfm

This is a weird survey.
That shows a Scientology video advert.
You say whether it was effective or not.

If you want to waste the rest of the day trying to figure out how to
do the survey...help yourself. Go for it Mike.

Very effective 100 %  . There ... I am OT.

                                         I AM SO ANGRY!

The more I read about the life I lived the angrier I get. The more I think about what these people are doing to my mother the more I want to expose these people for their wrongdoings. The more I see them ABUSE their ex members who served half of their life (such as Rinder, the headies, etc.... I remember seeing Mike Rinder doing the Autobiography years ago) It just makes me sick! There MUST be a way we can expose this!! Other than the protests and faceless attacks. I grew up in this and at first I was almost.... Hmm... squashed? from it? Now I'm just plain PISSED! My mother has spent most of her life savings on this crap. She's currently on OT7 at Flag. I have to be very vague so as to not let on to OSA, However I must be honest.. If OSA DOES infact figure out who I am and my mother is forced to disconnect from me (which she said she would absolutely do because I'm just another thetan looking for companionship) I will fight until my EYES BLEED! Until my fingernails are worn down! I have a lawyer in the family who would be more than willling to take the church down... as hard as that may be. I am SO angry that the courts denied the headleys case but at the same time I'm not surprised;.
Anyway, please PM me if you wanna be friends. I'm desperately searching for ex's that are REAL. PS.. If I find out that a PM is infact OSA that will just add fuel to my fire. I have A LOT of dirt on you fuckers being around PAC since 1993 and I will NOT hesitate to use it. I was in the Sea Org as well. So if ANYONE should be scared it should be you and your little bitch leader DM.. which IMO stands for Dinky Midget.

Terrific story from Karen on Jeff Hawkin's blog the other day:
http://leavingscientology.wordpress....duck/#comments

Quote:
On a posting on Marty’s blog I mentioned some Sea Org veterans who had to use Hemet Sherriff’s department to actually flee the place….Andre Tabayoyon (google his name), Jeff Walker, (Senior CS INT) Jesse Prince, former D/IG RTC, Marc Headley author of “Blown for Good” and so on.

It is unthinkable that veteran staff leaving, need an escort from LAW ENFORCEMENT to leave a Church. This has not gone un-noticed by Riverside Country Sherriffs and other agencies.

Who exits a Church with a Police escort ??????

Here’s a recent Email excerpt where LAPD has to do the rescue ~~ (25 year veteran fleeing)
QUOTE
As we stepped outside, I saw a pay phone. I immediately jumped at it, dialed 911. “What is your emergency/” “I am being held against my will by the Church of Scientology. I need police protection immediately. “ The blast of adrenaline literally left my body shaking, and my voice trembling. My Security guard clicked the receiver and cut me off. I told him my security guard to back off, at this point I was being held against my will and this is kidnapping. 911 called me right back. I proceeded to get their help. My Security watch was worried –for himself. He blurted out, “Think what they will do to me if I let you go.” (RPF’s RPF)

I felt badly for him but I now needed to watch out for myself.

Within minutes two police cars arrived. I asked if they wouldn’t mind questioning my Guard and delay him so that he doesn’t run off to tell the other security guards. I explained I needed to at least get taken back to the Anthony building to get my things and I would leave. The police were accommodating. I stripped off the shackle of the blue boiler suite and threw it in the trash. Two officers drove me back to the Anthony Building and came in with me.

When an SO officer attempted to intercept them, I simply told her that this was under control, they were with me. They were let through, I went upstairs, gathered my duffle bag. I believe what they saw shocked and awed them – appalling living conditions in full view. One of the officers commented, “ Can you believe this?” looking at the overcrowded berthing, dilapidated ceiling. My final request to them was to drop me off somewhere down Western Avenue away from the area.

One of the officers reminded me that they were not in the business of giving out free rides. I reminded him that as long as I was near them, the security guards could come after me and get me back, and I felt that my life was in danger and required police protection. Well, they surprised me. They drove down Western and turned their sirens on behind a taxi cab and pulled it over. When the driver asked them what he did wrong, they told him to give me a ride to wherever I needed to go.

I thanked the Officers. I headed to the airport. I had my credit card on me. As soon as I got to LAX, I got a one way ticket to New York and took off 20 minutes later On that flight I kept turning around looking for security guards. I made it, I escaped.
UNQUOTE

(Her full story coming out soon ~~ Karen)

LAPD needed to escort someone to safety !!!!!!!!
Religion indeed.

                          Sea Org Resignation: Chris Guider
     
Wednesday, 01 September 2010 11:57


For many years, Chris Guider was Inspector General MAA RTC, a very senior post. Besides being OT V and a Class IX auditor, Chris is a Scientology Magistrate -- among the most highly trained Ethics staff in the world. Chris was the person who handed me my SP declare when I routed out from the Int base. Now, he too has seen the light and is out. Chris is yet another ex-RTC member who, as a real Scientologist, has come forward to blow the whistle on David Miscavige and his corrupt organization. Chris is also an HSSC, FPRD Aud, and has done OEC Levels 0, 1 and 2. Chris and his wife just had a son. - Thoughtful

Read Chris`s story here...

Greetings from another ExScn...
Just wanted to say hi.

                     Ex Scn, staff, er, "Blown Staff" here.

Not as much damage in my case, as others here, mainly lost years and wasted effort. I'd like to thank the Sea Org member who so incredibly ARC broke me during a "mission" that I reevaluated my life in Scn and blew. Spent a season and a half homeless as a consequence. You know the drill: all friends and contacts were Scn, had nowhere to stay or go.

I know, or rather knew some number of posters here.

More later. Maybe. Probably.

              My stay was brief, my relationship not so much

Another newbie here. I've spent a surreal amount of time reading this forum lately, and I thought it was time I registered.

Well, okay, this is the third time I've registered. I keep getting deleted. Maybe because I hadn't actually gotten up the nerve to post yet? So maybe past time.

I'll admit, before I started doing some serious reading online, my time 'in' isn't something that I really thought about much anymore. It was brief, for starters, less than six months. It was also around twenty years ago and I was only 13-14 when my legal guardian first got involved in Scientology and then brought me along for the ride.

As a result, the already messy custody situation got even messier. Actually that's a pretty funny story, well, now it is, not so funny back then, but I'll save that for some point in the future when I'm less nervous about posting. Long story short, I ended up living with an entirely different part of the family in a tiny farming town in the middle of nowhere. It barely had a post office, it sure as hell didn't have an Org.

But even though my time on the inside wasn't something I've thought about that often, I can't say the same thing for the cult itself. A number of my family members remained in for years, others are still in to this day. Those in have tended to clash with those out, resulting in a cascade of disconnection, drama, and family get-togethers so chaotic that a cousin of mine once invited a roommate to Thanksgiving dinner because said cousin thought it was fitting revenge for an embarrassing practical joke the roommate had pulled.

I ran into a bunch of critical stuff a few years back, the Xenu story and so on, but I didn't do any real heavy reading until very recently. And wow, I'm stunned at how much worse things are than I thought -- and I'll be honest here, my opinion of the cult wasn't exactly what you'd call positive before I started reading horror story after horror story.

Well, um, so I guess that's my hello, of sorts. I'm kind of scared of this whole concept, because I've spent the last twenty years or so with Scientology as the elephant in the room. I'm so used to keeping my mouth shut on the topic whenever I'm with family, so as not to instigate another argument or handling/disconnection. But, well, now I realize that's how the monster gets away with eating the sheep from the field. And I want the sheep eating to stop. But it's scary anyway. Baby steps, I guess, and I'll get there in the end.

                       Another COS Defector


Since I was already aware of "Little Doubt" over at ESMB, I considered offering a half-snarking, half-gloating "Ho-Hum, one more defector out of how many?" But then I looked at his blog (thanks for the link). Wow. The ranks of the defectors is growing not only in numbers, but in ways of communicating effectively with those still in; that resignation letter is a collection of tasty 'entheta' in one tidy package. The only reason it's tl;dr is because the evidence against Miscavige is mountainous. Grab any section of it and there's plenty to chew on. I love the string of "Clear #XX, DECLARED SUPPRESSIVE..." Beautiful.

I'm really enjoying how this ride is accelerating.

Jim Little - Ex-Cult Member St. Louis
Hello,

My name is Jim Little, and I was a member of the Cult of Scientology for 22 years. It started back in 1989 while I was living in San Jose, CA and I bought the book Dianetics. Mostly a public member with a few attempts to be on staff over the last 22 years, but never more than a few months each time.

I am actually from Missouri so shortly after I got involved I moved back to St. Louis, MO and having been living in Missouri since then. Recently my wife, step-daughter, and myself all got our "SP Declare". All on one paper "goldenrod". Of course it's about 98% lies, 1% half-truths, & 1% truth.

Just wanted to let you know that I am here and let OSA I am here as well. Will have more to say in the next few weeks. We are getting our information together and going to make some videos to address the "SP Declare" and our experiences with the cult.

Since we three got declared my mother-in-law has told the cult to go *%$#*@ themselves along with my wifes oldest son who told them to refund his money on account. Now her middle child has decided to remain in the cult because his job, car, girlfriend, and living space is all tied to the cult. When it all comes down to it he is just thinking with the head between his legs. Out of one side of his month he says I believe what you all are saying and I don't think you are suppressive but my penis... I mean my personal integrity tells me its the greatest good to stay over here with the cult. I am sure he said church.

Anyway, there will be more to come.

Jim Little
Ex-Cult Member

               Standing Up to be Counted: Synthia Fagen

Another courageous former member of the Church of Scientology takes a stand. The following writeup gives a chilling picture of the corruption, criminality, harassment and pressure that exists in today’s Church of Scientology.

OTVIII Luis Garcia's Letter To Miscavige
Here is a copy of a letter I’ve written to COB. I hope it helps you cognite. But what you do afterwards is entirely up to you, as it should be.

Best,
Luis Garcia (was COS public)

Mr. David Miscavige, COB RTC <———– November 6th, 2010
_______________________________________

Luis A. Garcia, Public Scientologist

Mr. Miscavige,

My name is Luis Garcia. I became a member of the Church of Scientology in 1982 at Orange County, CA. From the very first moment I developed an intense interest in reading, studying learning and applying the teachings of Mr. L. Ron Hubbard. I wanted to go up The Bridge, and I wanted to help others do so as well.

Throughout the years, I have taken many courses and received much auditing, becoming an interned Class IV auditor, a Gold Seal Ethics Specialist, a graduate of the PTS/SP course, and also completed the Basics Book and Lectures among numerous other courses. I am New OT VIII, a Patron of the IAS, a Founding Member of Super Power, a Gold Humanitarian of the Orange County Org, a Supporter of ASI and a contributor to many other Orgs, libraries, causes and projects.

I have learned much and I have had great gains from my involvement with Scientology. I have the utmost respect and gratitude to LRH, and to all the staff across the globe that selflessly dedicate their lives to help others, and the many devoted public who have helped so much.

I am first and foremost a Scientologist; i.e.: “one who betters the conditions of himself and the conditions of others by using Scientology technology.” – LRH, Aud 73.

I have made it a practice to adopt stable datums as I learned them in Scientology and found them to be workable and true. One of these key stable datums I adopted early on from The Code of Honor, is “Never compromise with your own reality.”

Another one, is “Look, don’t listen.”

I took these and many other datums to heart and I used them as guiding posts in my travels through Life.

“WHAT IS TRUE FOR YOU is what you have observed yourself

And when you lose that you have lost everything.

What is personal integrity?

Personal integrity is knowing what you know —

… And to have the courage to know and say what you have observed.

… And sufficient personal belief and confidence in self

And courage that we can observe what we observe

And say what we have observed.

Nothing in Dianetics and Scientology is true for you

Unless you have observed it

And it is true according to your observation.

That is all.”

Ability, Issue 125
February 1961
(Tech Vol. VI, p. 23)

In following the above I must state I have found Scientology to be true. I have found LRH to speak the truth. I have also found to be true hundreds, yes hundreds, of horror stories I have heard and read about from current and former members of our church, telling a sad tale of abuse, alteration and misapplication of the Tech, heavy handed ethics, malfeasance, lies, out-ethics, extortion, blackmail, harassment, enforced realities and just plain viciousness...

You can read the rest of the letter here:

Newbie
        
                                    Officially Out


My name is Robert Horn, and I am officially out of the Church Of Scientology.

Some information about who I am:

I came into Scientology in 1989. I pretty much joined staff right away, and have been on and off staff for 12 1/2 years. 3 years of those I was the ED of Joburg Foundation. The balance was the Deputy ED on Foundation, and there was then a period where I was on Joburg Day and Foundation at the same time. On Joburg Day I was the Qualifications Secretary, and then the ED's Programs Operator.

I was on staff in the grotty old building in 95 Commissioner Street, helped the org move to 130 Main Street, and was there when the Org moved into their "Ideal Org" premises in Kensington.

Training wise I completed my Level 0, but had to start again with the "Golden Age Of Tech" and got stuck on the Metering Course. Funny enough, I did not actually get stuck on it, I just saw how much shit everyone else was having on it, and the disputes about instant reads and F/N's, that I decided not to bother. I trained up through the OEC volumes and did the Data Series Evaluator course.

Auditing wise I went up to OT V, and out through the bottom with the Advance Program where I had to do NED.

Why did I leave?

Good question. I will leave the whole story for another time. But the bottom line was that I started applying my Data Series Evaluator course to the Church Of Scientology itself. I started looking and evaulating all of the things I was seeing within the Organisation and at events. I then did the big jump and got onto the Internet. Spent a lot of time investigating further. Then, after discussing things with my wife, we decided to take a repayment of the money we had at Flag. At that point we got expelled, and once we actually received our money from the local org, ANZO and Flag, that was the last time we have heard from anyone within the Church.

The major Outpoints:

1. The "Ideal Org" strategy.
2. Donations for library campains.
3. Donations for IAS.
4. Donations for everything else.
5. Golden Age of Tech.
6. 6 month Sec Checks for OT VII's.
7. Lack of results.
8. Bad Management.
9. International Events.
10. False PR.
11. Advance Programs.

Each of these is a subject of a post on it's own. I am sure that a lot of this has been covered by posts on this forum.

So why am I making this public?

Through my dealings with Scientologists I have found that it is best to be totally open about how you feel about the "Church" and where you stand. You will not believe how it opens the door, and how many people actually totally agree with you. I am also hoping to network with other Ex-Scientologists in Joburg and South Africa area. So feel free to PM me.
