                           Two More Out: Craig & Suzanne Houchin
May 16, 2010

Dear Friends,

We are Craig & Suzanne Houchin and we are here to announce that we are leaving Scientology.

Suzanne has been a Scientologist since age 11. I have been a Scientologist since 1984, and we were married in the Church in 1986. I am an OT IV, Class IV, KTL, LOC and L11 completion. Suzanne is Grade III, Permanent Class IV, KTL, LOC, PDC and Briefing Course trained.

From 1994 to 2010, Suzanne and I were key leaders in the Boy Scout Program chartered to Celebrity Centre International (CCI), and all three of our bright and wonderful sons are Eagle Scouts.

We are Patrons and Honor Roll members of the IAS. And since 1998, our family photo and success story have been used to promote the effectiveness of Scientology on a Church website at this link (Note: as of 17 May 2010, the Church has removed us from this website).

http://www.scientologyreligion.org/pg012.html

We got into Scientology to understand the mysteries of Life, to understand ourselves, and to become more self-determined and causative beings. LRH’s words from Personal Integrity had the sound of freedom to us, “Nothing in Dianetics and Scientology is true for you unless you have observed it…”

Even now, the words are inspiring. Unfortunately, the reality turned out to be different.

We did gain a glimpse into the mysteries of Life, we did come to better understand ourselves and one another, but every good piece of Scientology came with a new chain that we had to wear. It was always a trade. For a little bit of tech, we had to give up a little bit of awareness, a little bit of integrity and little bit more self-determinism — which, of course, was tragically ironic.

By 2001, we were wrung out spiritually and financially. The trade-off just wasn’t worth it anymore and we began to quietly drift away. But, as well-indoctrinated Scientologists, we didn’t dare to discuss our doubts with each other.  For “good Scientologists”, the band of acceptable communication, even between the most intimate people, is extremely narrow. So, we simply didn’t talk about the big white elephant in the room — until about 3-years ago. That’s when Suzanne broke the cardinal sin of the Church and began to LOOK.

For the first year she kept it to herself, fearing what my reaction might be, and swimming alone through a sea of shocking stories of personal tragedy that literally turned her world upside down.

We have been married for nearly 25-years and love each other deeply, but such was our indoctrination that she was afraid that our marriage might be in jeopardy over what she was doing. When she finally broached the subject with me, I agreed to look at what she was reading, to evaluate it, i.e., to discredit it.

Well, very shortly, I got my own severe reality adjustment.

For weeks, I resisted, denied, and justified what I was reading, but finally I accepted that there was just too damned much smoke for there not to be a fire somewhere.

After that painful reach, I withdrew. I dropped the whole subject and went on with my life. Then, some friends of ours caught on to us and made us talk. Thankfully, they joined us and began looking themselves. And all over again we began reliving with them the “WTF?” “This can’t be true!” “Oh, shit! I knew it!” roller-coaster ride.

Together, we all discovered the SP Times series, then Marty’s, Jeff’s and Steve’s blogs. We discussed, discussed and discussed forbidden topics, personal experiences, revelations, cognitions, and even wins from de-PTSing that we had never had the freedom to discuss before. It makes a huge difference to have others to go through this experience with.

For that reason, all of the blogs have been immensely valuable to us in this journey, but it was Counterfeit Dreams that, for both of us, finally stilled our minds, moved us from doubt, and marked a dramatic turning point in our journey.

That’s why it is such a privilege for us to make this announcement on Jeff’s blog.

We are no longer members of the Church of Scientology.

We are no longer Scientologists.

We are members of the human race, and as such, we want to help end David Miscavige’s reign of terror.

We want to thank all of the thoughtful and courageous beings who post on this blog and all of the other blogs. Every story, every viewpoint has made a difference on our journey.

And Jeff, from the bottom of our hearts to the very tip-top, thank you for telling your story, thank you for doing what you are doing, and thank you for being.

Craig & Suzanne Houchin

                             17 students leave LA Org


I sold my last 2 boxes of Scn materials yesterday. The lady who bought them had an interesting story. I wanted to share it with you.

It turns out that 17 students that were at LA Org (not sure if Day or Fndn) left 3 weeks ago and are NOT going back. It was an entire group that was studying from Taiwan. They are going to study Scn together as Independent Scientologists. This is the same group that was studying at CCInt before 2006. They were getting trained up for the Kaohsiung Mission.

The two main opinion leaders of the group, one of them OTV, did some research online. Some websites that helped them see what was really going on was Marty's blog, FriendsOfLRH.org, SP Times Truth Rundown, and videos by Helmut. They were tired of all the out tech by staff members, ineffective and wrong ethics actions, mandatory attendance at events, constant reging, staff members yelling at each other, The Golden Age of Altered Tech, and the constant suppression they felt in the environment. They were not "winning" on course and in life, according to her. They had written up KR's that had gone nowhere. They could see that it wasn't going to change.

The two leaders of the group wanted to create a peaceful environment where they could be left alone and just study and practice Scn in a more user-friendly way. They wrote a letter to the other 15 as to what they discovered and where they were going. They let them make up their own minds about it. Sure enough, they all left together!

         Louise Cronin is out of the Church of Scientology


There is a comment on Marty's blog that Louise Cronin is out of the Church of Scientology:

Right, here goes …deep breath. After various happenings and goings on (yup, I have one of those five page stories too) and having spent the last 10 years or so laying low and putting my life back together and trying to make some sense of it all, I find myself rather wanting to raise an inelegant two finger salute to the church and their bullying tactics, so… I’m Louise Cronin and I’m with you awesome fellas.
"I'm with you awesome fellas [on Marty's blog]" = I am an Independent Scientologist = I am no longer a member of the official Church of Scientology.

Mike Rinder later provided some family information:

Hey Louise!

Nice to see you here! You are very welcome amongst friends.

For those former Flag/Int SO members, Louise is Rachel Donohue’s sister.

Mike

Finally, it appears Louise's sister, Rachel Donohue may still be in the PAC RPF:

                     This IS a real ex-scnientologist!


I would like to post a letter “form a friend of mine” that
I believe to be in line of what it’s being discussed here:

“ Dear… some people continue asking me why and how
I could stay in CoS for so many years and then suddenly
come out.
Well, analyzing carefully my time track I can see I was full
of energy and purposes from the beginning and for many
years I was really happy in doing what I was doing.
I was helping people to walk on the only road that takes to
true spiritual freedom.
I knew that SCN was constantly attacked by bad guys that
didn’t wish to see people free from the status quo.
There was no doubts or “maybe” in me but only certainty
that I was doing the right thing and playing the only game
worth to be played on this planet.
Then something happened and gradually my feeling that
something was wrong began to increase. I don’t know
what really happened but I was starting to hang “maybes”
on space and time. Orgs rules seemed to become more
restrictive and I started to dramatize more and more service-
facs in order to see where the outpoints were.
My comm.-line with myself was full of nuttering but I tried
to hide that to my fellow staff, because I didn’t want to go to
ethics and after all I was clean like a rose.
Even some LRH policy began to bother me, the same policy
letters that before I found totally right.
The game that before I was playing as a protagonist, now
seemed to becoming hard and rendering me an effect.
One day walking out from the org a man wearing a mask
(he was dancing and looked like a bit stoned or drunk)
gave me a leaflet on which was written “it’s ok to have doubts”
and…boom! I left the Church the next day.

Honestly, few days after I left, a feeling that I betrayed my
friends and my original postulates, begun to assail me.
I was loosing the grip on my services-facsimiles?
I needed to do something about it and I started to surf the
Web in order to find something that could be able to
completely justify my decision to leave.
(LRH policy on “blow” was not correct for my case,
you know?)
And…Boom! On the internet I found all the answers I was
looking for:
I was PTS to David Miscavige ! Yes that explained my
feeling of becoming more and more effect.
Why I didn’t realized that before?
Of course I couldn’t! And the works of Margaret Singer,
Steven Hassan, Pavlov and Ted Patrick explain very well
to me about how I was being mentally controlled and
“brainwashed”. But why many specialists in the field of
psychology don’t agree with their theories?
Because those specialists didn’t study “cults’! That’s why,
and I found that answer on the web as well.
So was LRH a con-man? I don’t think so because I
had many wins with SCN tech. And I witnesses so many
wins in other people too. But of course he was not perfect
because there are also so many people on the web who says
that he was a psychopath, I don’t think all of them are liars.
No, it’s DM who altered the tech! That explains also why
so many different “squirrel groups” (eachone with his
own version of the tech) are springing out.
Thank God for the Internet.
What about all of these SCN groups such as Narconon,
ABLE, Criminons, CCHR, Drugs and human rights
campaigns, etc…?
Oh well, those are only SCN front groups established by
SP DM with the purpose of recruiting and PR.
Thank God I have an internet connection.
Thank god I found all the motivators I needed to make
me feel better now.
All I have to do now is opening a blog where I can find
people like me so as to exchange those same experiences
and get constantly acknowledged for what I now know.

Thank you my friend for listening."

                       Small PAC update, ASHO and AO public... 


Got an update from someone at PAC.
ASHO F has 5 people on KTL....and they don't deliver KTL during the day at all.

AO has no KTL course room at all anymore.

The food at PAC is down to pretty basic stuff. If you want coffee or OJ you have to buy it yourself. They serve apple juice once in a while.

The report said it's pretty empty in PAC is terms of pubic in general.

                       Monday, 31st May, 2010 07:29:21am

Name or Alias: Adam Holland
Training and/or processing level: BSM, Purif, SSII
Org or location: CLO Canada (Sea Org Base), Toronto
Time involved in the Church of Scientology: 2 Years
Recommended Website - Ex-Scientologist Message Board

1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
    I was born into a scientology family. As I grew up, my father gradually introduced me to the concepts contained in scientology. I was quite young, so I accepted the concepts to be true.

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
    The appeal is in the promise of restored immortality, and supernatural ability to succeed in life. By comparison, the abilities I thought I could attain would exceed those portrayed by the Jedi Knights in the movie Star Wars. Equally important was the idea that you were able to help other people regain these abilities.

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
    When I was recruited into the Sea Organization in Toronto, I had finished high school, but hadn't been motivated to get good marks. I had doubts about what I wanted to do in life, and whether I could succeed in college or university. I planned to 'go OT' regardless of my career path, so joining the Sea Org seemed to make it simpler to reach that goal. I also had a friend in high school who was prescribed a cocktail of psychiatric drugs. Because I was indoctrinated that psychiatry is evil, I blamed his condition on psychiatry, and I strongly wanted to help scientology in their battle against psychiatry.

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?
    There is way too much focus on money:

    In July 2007 was the evening of the big event in Florida where they unveiled the $3,500 'Basics' book and lectures package to scientologists. When word of the event arrived, staff went around shouting and cheering to each other that 'Flag made 4 million dollars from the event!!!' For the next year or so, the majority of the Sea Org members were heavily involved in this sales campaign. Each time a sale was made, music would play over the P.A., and the sale was announced, followed by cheering and clapping. Some Sea Org members, even with an 18-hour work day, were only spending 2-3 hours on their management duties, while the rest of the time was dedicated to Basics sales.

    We weren't really helping people:

    Every week that I was a Sea Org member at CLO Canada, the most emphasized goal was to make $50,000 for the coming week. All discussion was in terms of dollars. Nobody ever spoke in terms of how many people we ought to help. Sea Org members were frequently assigned to call public scientologists to begin the process of selling a package. It was heartbreaking to go through the calling lists, because I often ran into cases where the person had been called once or twice every day for the preceding month, and they were very upset at the volume of calls. I avoided calling as much as possible. It doesn't help that the training given to callers included phrases like 'don't hang up without a credit card number!'

    The OT levels won't give you 'Jedi powers':

    I have seen an OT8 blow - took a plane to the other side of America - just because his OT3 senior yelled at him during a phone call. I thought that OT Sea Org members should make things easier with postulates (ie base crew wouldn't have to push heavy furnitiure around anymore, just make stuff float around wherever you want it to go) but nobody at any level of the Bridge demonstrated any advantage over a regular Joe. The only way they get things done is the same way everybody else does it: hard work, plain and simple.

    The rules and lifestyle in the Sea Organization are designed to eradicate your individuality:

    I only realized this because I witnessed it happen to somebody else in my second year at CLO Canada. She was just a kid, a 13-year-old new CMO recruit, but eventually I detected something wrong: her personality started being 'wiped' as time went by, until she was completely withdrawn as a person. Before she started to change, she would usually greet people with a cheerful 'Hi!' and a smile. But whatever training or ethics she was engaged in, it was destroying her. The last thing she ever said to me was 'I'm not at liberty to talk', nearly in tears. Her mother was a Sea Org member, too. A friend of mine. Eventually I found out that this little girl wasn't 'at liberty' to talk with her own mom either - the explanation was something to do with 'security rules.'

    It wasn't until months later that I would realize that I had also been 'wiped' more or less, but didn't notice. I guess CMO is much more ruthless with their dealings, and by comparison, I was subjected to fairly subtle conditioning.

    Leadership in Management rules by force:

    I spent a short time at the Hollywood Guarantee Building, where upper-middle management is housed. That is where I encountered one of the highest-ranked Sea Org members: an RTC Representative. Known as Mr.Z, she is one of the angriest persons I have ever met. Whatever training she did, I don't know, but she can stir fear with a simple look, at 100 feet away. Now it is my solid belief that those who are at the top will behave as their predecessor did: therefore they serve as an example of how L Ron Hubbard would run the show. I never met him, but the movies and stories I have read illustrate a very smart, caring and generous man. The leadership in LA and the CMO Executives in Canada paint a much darker picture. Maybe sometime after he passed, they deviated from his kind way of dealing with people, or maybe that's the way he actually behaved himself - in either case, the image being presented to the public is completely opposite of how things really work in management. And it's being hidden for a good reason.

    As a Sea Org member, there is a tendancy to disconnect you from your family and friends - just by virtue of being there.

    In December 2008, I wanted to visit my family for a week during Christmas. a couple of weeks prior to my planned time off, I was shocked to discover another young man had not seen his family for Christmas in 6 years! His job was a critical 'post' and he couldn't leave it without someone to fill in over Christmas. I told him that I would cover for him while he visited his family. He did. I subsequently asked for a week off in January, so I could have my share of family time. My senior would not sign the authorization to allow me to go, because I had not sold any packages yet!

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
    There is a quote by L Ron Hubbard that says the supreme test of a thetan (spirit) is to make things go right. I knew that this sales program was being run in a blunt, cold-hearted and destructive manner. But Sea Org members were taught to believe we could fix any situation, no matter how messed-up it was. Yes, a good chunk of the Sea Organization worldwide was tied up in this insane push for income, but it was a short term problem, I thought, and I could fix it so we could go back to helping people. And yes, it seemed that the personnel department was operating by creating fear in the staff, but again, that could be fixed, I thought.

    On my very last day in the CLO, I was working in the files room on a mundane project to tidy it up. But those last few hours revealed that the Sea Org would not likely change: I discovered that hundreds of 'sales' compaigns were planned and run just like this one, and the papers were dated all the way from the 70's until now. I discovered that it has always been about sales. The Sea Organization can't 'go back' to helping people - it never did.

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'?
    Sea Org. In 2007 I spent most of the time on various projects related to the Basics sales. I went to LA for two months, where I did more related projects. In February 2008 I spent a month as a night-shift security guard during the initial phase of the Anonymous protests. Later that year, I was posted as the Director of Communications, CLO Canada. I remained on that post until I found out that I was not allowed to see my family in January 2009.

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
    I witnessed that Ethics is ultimately 'Control by Fear':

    When I wrote to my superiors stating that I was going to take a week off with my family - whether they authorized it or not - I discovered just how extreme it can get. The night before my planned week off, I was brought into a room by two Ethics staff, and I was screamed at for wanting to see my family. A large scientology dictionary was thrown before me onto a table, making a loud bang. All at once, they were screaming that I was being suppressive, and that I would be declared a Suppressive Person if I did go for the week. I was told that I would be re-captured and brought back to the base if I did make it to my father's house. And in my head, I knew that this was the kind of treatment being recieved by that little girl. This was what was ruining her.

    Despite my personal strength and confidence, even I was scared by that interrogation. It didn't end until 2am, 5 hours later. But they failed to assume control over me - I went anyway. It gave me time to think about what was really going on in there. Once I figured out that this was really all about control, I wasn't afraid anymore. The deception was over: they had tricked me, and now I felt deeply betrayed.

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?
    As of January 2009, CLO Canada operates a computerized telemarketing centre, designed to make sales as fast as possible. Unless they are planning to start selling windows and doors, this cold-blooded sales pattern needs to be abandoned, or they soon won't have any people to call.

    Don't make false promises about OT levels. The fine print says it like it is: you are promised nothing from the services. Leave it at that; don't exaggerate.

    Children should not drop school to join the Sea Organization. Short-cutting their Education isn't ok. If completing their Education leads them away from the Sea Org, then maybe it's time to change. Just because drop-outs are less likely to question things doesn't mean everything is ok, it just means they haven't figured it out yet.

    Follow The Way to Happiness: treat your subordinates as you would like to be treated. I am sure that those two Ethics staff would not like to be prevented from seeing their family. And they definitely wouldn't appreciate being screamed at just because they miss their parents.

    Sea Org members must not be confined to base. Freedom of mobility is a fundamental right in developed nations; don't thwart it. If somebody wants to go: let them.

    Threatening to declare people as a form of control definitely isn't a good operating basis. It needs to stop.

    Declaring people who honestly speak of these injustices is only another injustice. Listen to them - and heed their advice - they know what they are talking about!

    Percieving that they have enemies, when really they are dealing with former members, only aggravates the situation. There are no enemies to scientology - the only reason they have a conflict at all is due to their stubborn refusal to correct their behaviour.

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?
    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice...

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
    There is one thing I am proud of here: I had the guts to commit myself entirely to helping other people - for the rest of my life. And I when I agreed to that, I sincerely meant it. I may have left scientology, but I don't intend to back out of that commitment. I'll just have to discover ways that I can actually make a difference in the community.

                    Lisa Hamilton speaks

Lisa was a stable terminal for many staff and public in the LA area, in fact, across the entire Western United States.  In that part of the world, if you said Senior HCO the person that came to mind was Lisa.  A 22 year Sea Org Veteran, she was respected, admired and loved for her ability to apply standard tech (especially ethics) to those she was working to help.  And that is perhaps the one word that sums her up – help. For the benefit of the individual.  She left the Sea Org with her husband in 2008. She explains why.  This is an “on the ground” report of how the C of M has perverted Scientology.  If you know Lisa, you will also know that this is utterly devoid of hype or overstatement.

JB here.  Anyway, I just completed the most successful blow from the Int Base without anyone having a clue that it was going to happen and, aside from my pc and ethics folders, I got out with all my stuff, bank account emptied and phones and blackberry wiped clean and left with the batteries out and SIM cards destroyed and my vehicle full of gas courtesy of motorpool.
 
Let me fill you in a bit more as I feel that some of the marbles have settled a bit in my head now as more time goes by.  Firstly, please realize that I am extremely paranoid right now.  I am out all alone here and freaked that they might magically find me.  I am pretty familiar with all the lines and tricks they use to locate people, hell, I used to do it myself!  But I am pretty confident that I did a good job of leaving no clues or leads or ways of tracking me down electronically or otherwise.  But my paranoia even extends to hoping I am not writing to an OSA bullshit email set up on a clone website that I got to in an effort to get to yours! Or that they are hacked in to your site or even hushmail or your pc and are monitoring every communication that goes in and out from you. I‘m a bit vulnerable right now and haven‘t contacted anyone yet and fear looking up old friends as they are probably  tracking down and calling every name of old buddies from my life history.  I was never anywhere near as high in  terms of power as you or Mike were, but I have been DM’s “personal engineer” as he used to brag to people ( I hated that leash he put on me)
 
Anyway…  back when I was Internal Security Officer in RTC and you came back from the ship and became my senior, I remember one comm cycle we had where you told me very sincerely to “only listen to LRH and don’t buy what other people might give you as their interpretations or their examples“.  You said to study and understand LRH and I wouldn’t go wrong.  I really took that advice to heart at that moment in that comm cycle.

I remember, not too long after that, being in the courseroom in Qual, I don’t remember what course I was on, but I was reading An Essay on Management.  It blew me away.  It made so much sense and while reading it and really seeing LRH’s description  of punishment drive I had my first thoughts of how DM operated.  Man what a withheld thought!

I had a square peg suddenly and it seems that the nature of theta is to reason out how it actually fits the round hole.  But the seed was planted.  I read a bit of entheta crap on my lines here and there over the next year on that post and I ended up expressing my “THOUGHTS” and ended up at HV on the RPF for 3 years.  I was the MAA out there ultimately and I heeded your advice and studied LRH profusely.  After all my RDDs and whatnot I ended up reading all the LRH books and just about the entirety of the tech vols.  I was incredulous.  This was awesome.  I fell in love with the auditors code and the better virtues of man and had phenomenal wins by really caring about people and helping them.  It became simple. The comparison was what I had seen back at the base over the prior years and the horriby failed attempts to “handle” people by putting them in tents and forcing them to admit they were SPs and then retraining them on the Criminon program and George Washington’s rules on good behaviour.  80 percent of them just ended up not getting handled or blowing.  Some standard tech, 100% results, huh?

Another realization I had out at HV was that all these people that were so “fucked up” were a phenomenal work force.  Much to the contrary of DMs continuous rantings at the time (and still to this day) that RPFer were constant overt product makers without exception, all the work they did was generally far superior to the construction work and sets and props work that the miserable lot of Gold crew were producing in their oppressive environment.  It might have been the RPF but it had a special factor of a lot of people that were actually validated for their creativity (albeit only internally in the group of RPFers and some of the Sets, Props and Estates guys that we were constantly bailing out).

I remember starting to formulate back then my conviction that man really WAS basically good and it was actually easy to help him get better.  My wins along this line were staggering.  I had a blast and completely ended up differentiating myself from the bullshit way things were done at the base.  “SRA’s”, “ripped his face off”, scrubbing dumpsters and toilets with toothbrushes and all the myriad other forms of RSing ev purp dramatization were so obvious to me as a means of destroying people rather than any sort of therapeutic help or MEST work to get someone out of his head.  I gained more in my three years out at HV in this de-PTSing enlightenment than I had gleaned in my whole SO career since 1977 (I think I joined around the same time as you).  So I came back to the base, supposedly to go back to RTC but no one dared post me for some reason.  I was put on full time “training”  I said fuck that and went to motorpool and started working.

I realized within a week that nearly everyone on the base was around the Fear band on the tone scale.  This was wierd to me.  I decided that few people could be trusted as when down at that band they will gladly use you as a shield for any imagined bullets they perceive coming their way.  To put it another way, they will „throw you under the bus“.

I ended up later going in a training pool for RTC and found that the plan was for me to become Estates Manager RTC.  But again, no one would post me.  They were scared to take any initiative cuz “COB might get upset” or something.

The square peg started to get splinters and stuff for me, but I still managed to rationalize it and figure out how it fit the round hole.  So I just took over gradually as Estates Manager by getting involved in that great empty mausoleum, Building 50.  I got the place pretty perfect and snagged myself a couple juniors, Maggie and Brenden, and strived to be a good senior and help them improve and be more competent.  I think I set a pretty good example for them and probably tainted them (good!) with my slightly different views and observations that it was easy to make things better and help people and that it made no sense that all the people on the base were „all just a bunch of SPs“ and that what actually made sense was that there was something else wrong that was as yet unidentified (although I was building my own secret arsenal of observations that this unidentified factor was good old Dave himself)

The square peg started to get barbed wire wrapped around it, but I was careful to not cross any line in my voiced “dissension” and get anyone alerted to me.  I still managed to figure out how I was somehow wrong and that this bristling square peg still fit the round hole very smoothly.
 
I started making a name for myself.  I started handling some screwed up MEST type cycles that were on Dave’s lines in all manner or fields.  Stuff for TC was big on the list.  I started noticing how effusive DM was with people who would directly help his MEST and money empire.  These were his best “friends”.  Nobody got the prolonged handshake and piercing howitzer gleam right in the eye “THANK YOU, REALLY” like those who forked over hundred of thousands of dollars.  The square peg started getting slathered with napalm.

Then the thing that really nailed it for me.  The Freewinds.  Those previously in charge made a disgusting OP mess of the mega 30 million dollar full renovation of the ship in preparation for the MV 2008.  50 to 80 people from Int, PAC and Flag piled in to somehow get it “done” and presentable in the last 2 weeks.  I was one of them.  It was a total bandaid sets and props job and the place was such a seething overspend and OP that a large part of it had to be fully ripped apart and redone.  I stayed on board for a whole 14 months “fixing” it.  I became somewhat of a hero.  How and what I did and the final product that was way beyond what was originally envisioned is its own long story.  But I basically took over the whole ship and ran it “my way” (LRH’s way of common sense and actually helping people).

I spotted Sue Price as the “DM clone” she was and decided to depower her by de-PTSing her whole CMO from her.  I started to realize that the source of this ranting disgusting demoralizing SP op basis was DM himself and that she had “learned” this when she was at Int and brought it with her to the ship, and so had many other staff.  I saw that this was a disease spreading throughout the SO.  I had never experienced first hand anything other than the Int base and all the bullshit that it was somehow a peculiar place full of all the SPs you could imagine.  But I was out on the clear blue seas away from all that crap and I took the opportunity to “try” doing what made sense to me and had huge wins pulling it off and changing the lives of hundreds of staff with my example.

Marty, they think I’m a god or something.  Its really something.  I can’t imagine DM black PRing me to them with any measure of success after they got to work with me for 14 months.  I imagine he will keep my blow “quiet”.  I came back to Int from the ship last September and noticed that all the photos and products I got on the ship were used by him to “stuff up the ass” of some people in the hole and elsewhere by showing them how effective he was with his „personal engineer“ doing it right.  I could tell by how disgustingly propitiative they were to me in their „congratulations“ they were giving me.  Good news was only useful to him if he could use it to show people how fucked up they were.  Pretty sick.  The square peg with splinters, barbed wire and napalm was now lit afire and I started to see that it really did not fit the round hole at all.

When I returned to the base from the Freewinds last September,  I got pulled aside by Carol B in COB’s office and “briefed” that I was not to reassume my post as Estates Manager and to stay aloof from my two juniors and any of the other “crap” going on at the base.  I was put onto full time study on “the basics” and told that I had a couple projects coming up.  I rebelled and moved back into my old office and told my juniors that it was not covered in any policy that I was aware of that I could just willy nilly be taken off post.  I was perm posted and fully hatted and not replaced so I just kept my post, though I did let my juniors get on with it as they had stepped up to more responsibility in my absence and I was not going to knock them back.

Over the months I got sicker and sicker of the obvious downtone lackeys in the hole and the dozen or so of  them that were now the “Int” people that got moved into Building 50.  They were so beaten down and useless that I couldn’t fathom it.  I saw them being completely useless and didn’t know how they could live.  Something was very, very wrong.  I decided that I needed to start preparing for something.  I could tell by various comm cycles and indicators that I was being kept with some idea that I end up with COB and possibly a handful of other “trusted and loyal” people somewhere.  This terrified me.   NO way!
 
And then I got a brand new iPhone for Xmas!  Wow! internet access at my fingertips.  I ventured to “look and not listen”.  I watched the series of AC360 shows and then looked further and saw your Tampabay.com stuff and from there found your blog.  Holy crap!  I am NOT the only one who has seen this crap.  That settled it.  I had to get out.  I couldn’t do anything from inside that I could think of without getting incarcerated and hammered into submission.  I would have ended up taking off if that happened.  So I decided to take off without being “in trouble” while I had hundreds of people who saw me as a pretty sane cool dude who was in high ARC with all people he worked with and helped them.  I thought that would help get them thinking better than if I became just a “disaffected asshole like the rest of them”.  So poof…I blew.  They can‘t find me too easily.  I want to talk to you.  I am leery of getting tracked down until I can get some more firm ground and wherewithall under my feet.  There are some things I know that may be revealing and beneficial to you from my recent observations of his op against you and what has been happening in those circles.
 
A real painful part is the friends I left behind.  I got nobody out here!  I want to help them and see if I can pluck more of them out from this crap.  But mostly, I want to depower DM by getting his minions out from under him.
 
Enough for now. I will send this and await a reply.  I am very sincere about this.  I’m not shitting you.  Maybe DM has planted some false “leak” that I am his next secret infiltration attempt in order to keep you from contacting me or listening to me.  I wouldn’t put it past him. There is a lot of scheming going on.  Its a bit scary and lonely out here.  I want to do something.  I need to.  It is my duty.  Let me know, huh?

Love you,  JB

 New COS Detective Hat; COS contacts ex Scientologist after 40 years
Church of Scientology contacts Ex-Scientologist after 40 years.
The New Church of Scientology Detective Hat.

From Leaving Scientology: Never Gonna Give You Up :
Quote:
Never Gonna Give You Up

June 23, 2010

by Jeff

On my last trip to LA, I had lunch with an old high school buddy. He told me, with some surprise, that he had been recently contacted by the Church of Scientology.

Some background: my friend took a few courses and did some auditing back in 1968-69. We got into Scientology at the same time. After about a year, he decided it wasn’t for him and left. It took him several years to get off the mailing lists. But after he changed addresses several times and threatened legal, they stopped sending him stuff.

Now, suddenly, 40 years later, they’re baaaaaack.

My friend was surprised, but more than that, he was seriously creeped out. “How did they find me?” he wondered. He felt like he was being stalked.

Well, it’s all explained in an e-mail from the Pasadena Org, announcing what they laughingly call “The ARC Project.”
Quote:
“There is a Brand New Game at Pasadena!! We are the first Class V Org on the planet where the field has demonstrated such willingness and competence on the files project that we have been asked to go one step further….

“It’s called THE ARC PROJECT and you can ALL be part of it!!

“The Purpose is to build full understanding between the Org and everyone in our Central Files. The full understanding does not yet exist for some of the folks who have gotten lost in CF. So we restore the ARC by getting the basics in first – locating each person in CF and confirming their contact info. They can then be helped back onto or further up their Bridge!

“Our hat is to be the detectives and locate the people and confirm that they in fact are at that number or live at that address. Then they can be accurately represented in the Org Addresso and approached effectively by the Org or by industrious volunteers and FSMs!!

“Talk about a game where EVERYONE wins – WHAT FUN!!

“There is a variety of hats you could wear – from detective, to in-putting data in Addresso, to phone calls to confirm we have found the right guy, to pulling and returning our beautiful new CF folders, to helping with food/water and signing up more Volunteers for the project, to name some of them. There is definitely something for EVERYONE!!

“All eyes are on Pasadena and the whole wonderful LA field!! Please come in and help us RIGHT NOW so we can set ANOTHER RECORD in completing the ARC Project!!!! We are Trend Setters – movers and shakers – SO MOVE ON OVER HERE AND LET’S SHAKE IT UP!!

“Please come in NOW and BRING YOUR FRIENDS – let’s show the rest of the planet how it’s done…AGAIN!!!”

Okay, Trend Setters, let me get this straight. It’s a project to find people on the address list who are no longer in touch with the Org, who haven’t been in touch with the Org for many years – in the case of my friend, 40 years. People who have decided, for whatever reason, not to continue with Scientology (or to continue it in another location, possibly even as an independent). People who have made it clear through their actions that they no longer want to be contacted by the Church of Scientology. People who, many of them, have spent considerable time and effort to get OFF the mailing list so the Church is no longer wasting paper and postage on them.

And now, with a lot of effort and “detective” work, the Church is hell-bent on finding these people again, putting them back on the mailing list, and contacting them to sell them more Scientology.

Why?

One has to ask, what part of “I’m not interested” don’t they understand?

I know, I know. There are those who would proclaim “everyone on Earth is a Scientologist, they just don’t know it yet.” Or “once a Scientologist, always a Scientologist – they’re just ‘inactive’ or ‘temporarily off the Bridge.” I was guilty of this myself when I was working in Church Marketing. It was well known that the bulk of the Int Addresso was “inactive.” We called them “inactive Scientologists.” It never occurred to me that, in all probability, many of these people were no longer Scientologists at all.

So here we have Project ARC, “to build full understanding between the Org and everyone in our Central Files.”

Which begs the question, what definition of understanding are they using? What definition of ARC are they using?

Because there’s no effort to understand the reality of the people they contact. No, the project is all about enforcing the Church’s understanding on them. The Church understands that they are all still Scientologists. The Church understands that they all have to be gotten “back onto their Bridge.” That’s the Church’s “reality.” To hell with the public person’s reality.

In other words, enforced affinity, enforced reality, enforced communication – and enforced understanding.

I’m reminded of a lonely middle aged man who finds his “little black book” in a trunk in the attic, listing the girls he dated in high school twenty or thirty years ago, and he begins a campaign to call them all and “rekindle the old flame.” Dude, sorry to break it to you, but they’ve all moved on. And there’s a reason they haven’t called you in decades.

If the Church is really serious about increasing their membership numbers, how about dusting off some of those old Planetary Dissemination Campaigns. The ones that actually worked.

But that would be work. That would be hard. It would require staff and money and expertise. It’s much “easier” to browbeat staff (and now, apparently, volunteer public) to call long-neglected mailing lists of people who aren’t interested and give them a ton of enforced reality.

What is it with the Church that they can’t let people go? If you blow the Sea Org, there’s a whole “blow drill” to get you back, Dozens of staff are mobilized, and in some cases PIs are hired to track the person down. When John Brousseau recently blew, they sent 20 Int staff and unknown numbers of PIs to Texas to try to get him back.

And now they’re trying to “recover” anyone who’s ever bought a book or done a course, attempting to mobilize field Scientologists, hat them as “detectives” (PIs?), and get them to search out and find these people.

And if they don’t come back, what will you do? Mobilize field Scientologists to follow them around in black SUVs?

                Heber's Ex Karen announces she's now out of CofS

                                  Part 1
 Here's the post....
We’ve told Miscavige time and again, do not mess with a mother’s nature. Try as we have, he just won’t listen.

He now has Karen De La Carriere/Jentzsch to deal with. Karen is an empire builder; she excels at acquiring territory and turf . She is a true friend to LRH and a legend from the early years of the Sea Org. Today, she is a very successful and influential businesswoman, internationally recognized as a leading expert in her field. We consider Karen one of our dearest friends and a highly valuable player in the Independence movement.

- Mike and Marty



"I have done a huge amount of soul searching and given a lot thought to exiting DM’s “church”. It is not easy to make such a decision to walk away from what has been an integral part of your life for decades. I had planned to withdraw my support (and stop the considerable flow of funds I had poured into the Church) and remain relatively quiet behind the scenes. But then everything changed, when once again, the Church of MEST decided to try to destroy my family.

Let me provide just a little background to put things in context.

Flagship Apollo

In the early 70′s I traveled to the Flag Ship Apollo as a public. I took just one suitcase, for a planned 10 day stay. I had trained up through Class VIII at Saint Hill in the UK and decided to celebrate my graduation with a Mediterranean Cruise and some auditing. And I also really did want to meet LRH.

A ship is a tight knit group and everyone gets to know the comings and goings. I had barely been aboard 3- 4 days when one of the first LRH Watch Messengers (someone who was with LRH for 8 hours a day), Janis Gillham, found me in the bowels of the ship. She had a message from the Commodore. I looked up at her startled that she knew my name. Her message was: “The Commodore asked if you have finished your auditing, and if so, would you like to join the Sea Organization?” I was silent for a moment. I felt a rush of excitement. My life was about to change in one second. I told Janis to tell the Commodore I would be honored to join his team. About 20 minutes later I met LRH on the Promenade Deck and received his congratulations. Janis told me later she knew of no other person who was invited to join the Sea Org personally by LRH.

And boy, I sure have some rare LRH stories to tell. I must tell them on this blog. The LRH Biography staff spent 2 days debriefing me for these stories about 3 years ago. Of course they will be deleted now that I am a Proud SP. So I will preserve these anecdotes for posterity on Marty’s blog. And based on the track record of Miscavige, the Biography will never be completed anyway as the person who is supposed to be writing it is instead his personal speechwriter.

I soon discovered that a “Field Class VIII” did not mean a Flag Class VIII. And so I re-did all my internships and then trained up to Class XII with LRH as the CS overlooking the folders and giving final TR passes. I won several “Auditor of the Year” awards and was personally commended by LRH 9 times. I was a high producer as part of LRH’s Flag technical team. I am the last LRH trained Class XII that belonged to Church of Miscavology. All other XIIs died, left the Church, or were declared. And now, I will proudly join the ranks of those who have been declared for withdrawing their support for the SP that is destroying the life’s work of LRH.

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks

I am sure you can imagine my reaction first to the “Golden Age of Tech” and then to “The Basics” events where DM in his infinite arrogance put down and invalidated all prior training and auditing. A relative handful of us kept the delivery high and the Gross Income rolling in, month after month, year in and year out. Half a dozen Class XIIs were the main source of income for the FSO. We kept the ship afloat with delivery of the Ls and other auditing, so LRH could continue his research and overlook and guide Scientology’s growth and impact. I sat at those events and literally watched Miscavige assume the (false) position of the new Messiah. HE WAS GOING TO IMPROVE ON LRH!

Those of us who worked on LRH lines knew very well, that LRH did not sell botched overt products. Every single facet and characteristic of LRH was to improve and upgrade the quality of life as best he knew. Now, in strutted Mr. Arrogance to inform everyone that they were incompetent, out tech, unknowing fools and that he had slaved feverishly to correct all the mistakes LRH had made (of course, there was a lot of PR and hype, but read through the bs and this is what he was saying). I audited 1000s of hours under LRH. I called FNs the way LRH wrote the definition. Not the David Miscavige definition. All those Ls and special Flag Rundowns delivered throughout the 1970s and 1980s did not incorporate the DM definition. In those years, I do not recall a single request for refund, missed withhold or trouble made for the pc in all the people I audited.

This is not to say I did not live a life of dread. The registrars David Light, Sonia Jacques etc. would get the Tours to sell huge blocks of auditing to No-Case Gain pcs. They were all dumped in the Class XII HGC for a miracle cure. I was the Class XII C/S. Jeff Walker, the Senior CS and I lived a life of daily combat over this. The stats of Flag Service Org were climbing nicely and Jeff wanted all pcs handled in the Class XII HGC. I was concerned about the well-being of LRH’s org and not to create a disaster with an illegal pc. I saw the future YEARS and YEARS before Lisa McPherson happened. It was just a matter of time. I cared very much to protect the Flag Land Base and on my watch, there was no death, no suicide, no one in my HGC under my CSing or auditing hit the skids.

Miscavige orders Heber to divorce me

Karen and Heber's wedding day

From early 1982 to 1987 I worked at OSA International. I had married Heber in 1978 and when he became President CSI in 1982 and was located in Los Angeles I transferred there to be with him. I had the grandiose title of “Presidential Aide” (Heber’s Assistant) One day I was summoned with Heber to INT base and it did not sound good. Upon arrival, Mike Sutter (then CO OSA Int) who had the previous week presented me with OSA “Staff Member of the Week” award, questioned me about a sentence I had told someone in FSO about Vicki Aznaran and Jesse Prince’s removal from RTC (Vicki was Inspector General). Even though this fact was Broad Public Issue a few days later, distributed in everyone’s in-basket, I paid for that goof dearly. I had committed out-security and this was used as a justification to destroy our marriage.

I was confined to the Int base and not allowed to return to Los Angeles to pick up a change of clothes. I did heavy deck work in the same underwear and dress for 10 days. It was humiliating. One sweats on the decks. It is HOT in Gilman Hot Springs. I was not ”trusted” to return to Los Angeles to pick up clothes and toiletries.

At this point, I spoke up. I went to Jackson, Security Chief (who posts here — Greetings Jackson!) and announced that nobody had the right to keep me against my will. I called it kidnap. I said they were breaking the laws of the land. I tend to speak up and meet things head on — I am not the silent suffering type. Well, that caused an explosion. My car keys were promptly taken away and I was put on increased hours of sec checking. And no surprise, that sec checking became wilder and wilder. Was I a psychiatric case? Had I been institutionalized? (LOL I had been in the Church since I was a teenager) Had I been implanted? Was I sent in by the FBI? Was I an IRS agent or plant? ROFL! Yes, I can laugh now. But it is not funny when this is run on you for hours, days, weeks and you cannot leave the base. It was 6 months of hell. Someone wrote on another site: “Under the totalitarian regime in Russia those that objected to the program were by definition ‘mentally ill’ as only a person who was mentally ill would be against the people’s paradise.” What a great quote. I was not “with the program,” therefore I must be psychiatric…….whoa. This is DM’s “Church.”

The years of performance, the stellar products, the Auditor of the Year awards year in and year out, all wiped out in one nanosecond. I did not agree to be kidnapped against my will at Int Base, therefore I must be psychiatric — even though I was one of 6 people on planet Earth that trained to Class XII CS. On reflection, those 6 months of kidnap and being imprisoned against my will at Int Base should have been reported to Law Enforcement at that time. But it would not occur to an SO member to do that. You just could not think that way when you are in, even though kidnap is a felony. I know now that was an overt because the same brutality has been repeated and even expanded in the 23 years since; witness the horrors of “the Hole” where Heber still resides.

                                  Part 2

I later learned from other sources that the whole 6 months incident was carrying out the DM order to get Heber to divorce me. Either get the evidence through sec checks that could be used to show him I was a plant or a psych case, or break me and make me act in a psychotic fashion that would prove it to him that way. Heber was sent to Germany and I was forbidden to use the phone, talk to Heber or talk to anyone other than my “handlers.” Lockdown.

Eventually the strategy worked. There was no way of fighting it.

Now, this was more than 20 years ago and DM has gotten progressively worse since. The Hole is a reflection of the insane deterioration of DM’s ability to see the value of a Staff Member. Especially a dedicated SO member.

In 1990 I routed out of the Sea Org. I endured months of Sec Checking but did all the right things on the route out. In 20 years it never occurred to me to be hostile towards the Church. I remained a “good” Scientologist, funding libraries, buying all the new releases, showing up at events, giving AOLA $250,000 in the space of 3 years, and even embroiling myself in things of a more confidential nature to support the Church. I’ve had 20 years since my departure from the Sea Org to step out of line. I never did. And when the inevitable doubts crept in, I would think of my time track with LRH and just keep on going.

Karen, after recovering from Int and succeeding in the business world.

Alexander Jentzsch and Office of Special Affairs

Heber and I had a son in 1984 — Alexander Jentzsch. He was born and raised in the Sea Org.

When Alexander was 11 years old (he had left the SO with me in 1990 when he was 6 and had then been regged to return to the SO when he was 10), Heber and I were both located in Los Angeles and Alexander was at Flag. He was being used as a child slave laborer at the Fort Harrison, with no schooling or study time – instead cleaning toilets and floors in the Fort Harrison lobby 10-12 hours a day. I called OSA multiple times to tell them this violated the laws of the land. Finally I threatened that if it was not handled I would fly to Clearwater and extract him myself. OSA put him on a plane to Los Angeles within 24 hours.

Alexander was born in Scientology and knows nothing else. The culture is deeply embedded in him.

Fast forward to 3 years ago. Alexander is now married and his wife Andrea is pregnant. Pressure is brought to bear for an abortion. It is done skillfully – no heavy threats, but both are both taken off post and made to look at “the greatest good”. The message was loud and clear. Alexander called me multiple times a day as this goes down. All of the while his father, Heber, is uncontactable in lockdown in Miscavige’s Hole. In the end, Andrea had an abortion and they were returned to post. But she never gets over it and feels she has committed an overt of magnitude.

3 years later she is pregnant again. She really does want to be a mom. But now, times have changed. Claire and Mark Headley and Laura Decrescenzo’s lawsuits, media and the internet have caused the Church to re-think their enforced abortion policy.

This time Alexander and Andrea are routed out with ” love”. Kirsten Caetano, in charge of External Security at OSA, befriends Alexander in an unnatural, unheard of way. She arranges for his apartment rent to be paid. Helps arrange and approves him working for a Scientologist owned company at a very high wage, and gives him lots of sympathy and compassion. She strokes his feathers every way she can. He is given $3500 after he signs a bunch of documents on video. God knows he signed his life away, though of course the documents are worthless and Alexander was not given a copy of what he signed.

Psych Ops.

I keep hearing from Alexander how WONDERFUL Kirsten is. She gives him all her phone numbers: berthing, cell and work, and she is just a click away on email. Ahhhhhhhh. Feel the love….

Then Marty and Mike posted the blog on Heber (http://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2010/04/04/). Alexandar has a huge ongoing upset that Heber has not seen him in 6 YEARS. Even though he is a dedicated Sea Org member and can put up with a lot “for the cause”, it makes no sense to him (it shouldn’t) that he cannot see or talk to his father. It is a BIG button. Heber was born on October 30th 1935. He is 75 years old. And he is incarcerated at Int Base and he has been for years. Miscavige has not permitted any family time for Heber to see Alexander.

But the magic of Marty’s blog. Within 36 hours of that posting, Heber comes down to Los Angeles and spends 8 hours with Alexander for the first time in 6 years. Heber has a cell phone number he gives Alexander and promises to attend a family re-union of his brothers and sisters in August with Alexander.

Wow, what a change! Thanks Marty and Mike!

Scroll forward to a few days ago. I ask Alexander if he wished Heber “Happy Father’s Day”. He said he had called but could not get through. Heber no longer has a cell phone. And when he calls Alexander back he informs him that he will not be going to the family reunion, but will see Alexander next… at Christmas!!

I am outraged and try to communicate about this but Alexander shuts me down. I feel Kirsten’s presence in the comm cycle. How dare I question authority or hint that there may be something wrong in the world of Miscavige! The Thought Police scrambled into action.

Last night, Alexander was directed by his OSA handlers to guide me to an entheta site on line (entheta about Marty, Mike and even me). He actually tried to get me to read entheta about myself!! I will not tolerate my son being manipulated against me and when he began screaming at me to “get my shit squared away with OSA or lose him as a son,” I knew that the body snatchers had him firmly in their grasp. For any that think I am in error airing private mother/son stuff on the web, the scene of the church infiltrating and turning my son against me is something that must be exposed.

Mike Rinder went through this when 7 people assaulted him in that parking lot. His own daughter, Taryn, was screaming at him for being an SP.

The internet backlash as a result was enormous. People found the behavior of the C of M appalling and horrifying. But, the leopard cannot change his spots. Just another OSA op. Seems the latest ploy is a new twist on “family leverage” that would make Terl proud. But, once again, they have delivered a massive footbullet. I was content to withdraw my support at the start of 2010 and remain relatively quiet. All that changed yesterday. If OSA thought they would control me by using Alexander as a pawn, it backfired.

Every time Alexander is used by OSA I will faithfully post every detail on the web, so that the “Office of COB” can see that the world knows and understands their dirty tricks.

Sometimes it is fun to be underestimated.

But we live in a world of instant digital communication. Marty’s site gets 50,000 hits a WEEK !

We can let sunshine disinfect.

My life is good now. I am highly successful, healthy, wealthy and wise. I have no doubt who my true and dear friends are – they are the people who read this blog every day. And I have no doubt that I will dedicate myself to preventing the destruction of LRH’s legacy by the SP David Miscavige. This is my Doubt Formula announcement.

              Gary Lerner has left the Church of Scientology

Tater/Gary // July 3, 2010 at 1:49 am | Reply

HAPPY HAPPY Anniversary, Marty! What a trip it’s been!

Oh yeah, by the way, Marty, Mosey, Mike, Karen, Heber (I know you’ll get this soon) and so many others here that I’ve read and blogged with —

I’ve Pulled The Trigger!!!

Yep, that’s right… I’ve gone and done it.

My Name is Gary Lerner, Original OT7, OT8, KTL, PDC

I am Declaring MY Independence as a Scientologist.

I will not support any regime that has ANYTHING to do with David Miscavage as he is in my opinion a CRIMINAL for taking my Church and it’s Tech away from everyone. He has altered and abused many many many parishioners and org staff and SO staff.

I’ve been in Scientology since 1978. I have seen hundreds of beings become free and kind and loving. When I got in I took and OCA test and went right onto the Comm Course at the Santa Barbara Org. I loved it and I never looked back.

I’ve learned so much about life and livingness. Friendships. Caring for one another.

Soooo many wins that I gave up counting decades ago!

A lot of people both staff and public have helped me stay the course and guess what? I was just the most natural thing for me to do. From DAY ONE, I’ve always felt good about what I was doing and promoting to my friends and others.

UNTIL… BRAIN-DEAD DM decided that HIS brand of tech was what everyone should use!! WHAT F_ _ _ING COJONES!!!

The “Blind Leading The Blind”!!!??? Total arbitrary horseshit! That day that I saw this on paper I decided that was it for me. I didn’t have an executive’s viewpoint with data I could point to and drum it out of existence. Just my knowingness that this was coming from a squirrel.

When I was told about this blog I was finally given proof. Not just my feelings but PROOF about all of the CRAP that David Miscavage has unleashed on this planet. I won’t tirade over all of it now. BUT little Squirrel needs to know that I have “spotted” you and you really really have no concept about what a pissed off OT can do for you. You’ve fucked with my Bridge and Whole Track and you are gonna pay dearly for that MASSIVE OVERT!

All of the beings that have left, your spiritual prison, physically/emotionally/and will soon, get revenge and justice.

I Read. I Looked. I Listened to LRH. Books and tapes. Courses on communicating, auditing, understanding Matter, Energy, Space and Time as it applies to Theta.

I GOT IT!! DM, YOU DIDN”T!!!

To everyone here: Marty and this band of merry Thetans, I AM WITH YOU!!

I am now an Independent Scientologist!

Love to All for giving me the space and freedom to JUMP! Woooooo Hoooooo !!!

ΘTater/GaryL, Le, Ler, Lern, Lerne, Lerner

          Marsha Pearlman Sorensen has left the Church of Scientology


Marsha Pearlman Sorensen (OT III, Class VI, 7 years AOLA staff) has left the official Church of Scientology. She is now an Independent Scientologist.

While the following comment from Marty's blog is short and bit more cryptic than one might like, Marsha is now on the List of Independent Scientologists as IS #128 [Marsha (Pearlman) Sorensen, OT III, Class VI, 7 years AOLA staff.]

In addition to thanking Marty, Mike and Mosey, I would like to thank all of you who post here. You have given me a community…a fellowship…a place to BE.

I’ve said this before but it bears repeating. The level of intelligence , insight, theta beingness on this site brings me to a place I had all but forgotten for so many years could exist. I’m a better me on a daily basis. Keep blowing that great wind of change and renewal. It’s being felt all around the world.

Happy Independence Day everyone!

And, to those of you who are fortunate enough to be celebrating together….please figure out which direction Colorado is from you and raise a toast to another Scientologist “found.”

Marsha Pearlman Sorensen
