Once Again The St. Petersburg Times Rips Scientology A New One In A Scathing Three Part Series
The St. Petersburg Times continues to be a huge thorn in Scientology's side. Their Sunday edition reported horrific stories told by former Scientology members who have left the cult. Or should I say when they TRIED to leave the cult. It is part one of another three part series that they are continuing to run in addition to their Truth Rundown Series that they ran back in June.
Once again these former members were in Scientology for years and years and held very prominent positions.
The ex members talk about the two ways that a member can leave the cult. Which are called "routing out" or "blowing".
If members have doubts and have decided they want to leave, Scientology has a procedure called routing out. To route out of the cult is of course Scientology's preferred method. Reason being.... there is a good chance that you will end up staying in the cult because of Scientology's continued manipulation, brain washing, emotional distress and they also tell members that they are giving up their chance at eternity. It also gives the cult the chance to have a leaving member sign a "pumped up" affidavit. (which Scientology will embellish) This affidavit along with confidential and personal information that is in a member's file, while in turn will be used against them if they choose to speak out.
Scientology member's personal and intimate information is acquired through auditing sessions and "sec checks" and kept in a member's "PC file" which is held by the cult. Actor Jason Beghe who left the cult has asked for his files back, and as far as I know, has not received them back as of yet. Correct me if I am wrong.
Scientology has continued to prove that they do in fact use this tactic every time they respond to any ex member's story that has gone public. Former member's confidential information was not only printed in Scientology's edition of their Freedom Magazine for all other members to read, but this time around member's information along with out right lies and were used by Tommy Davis in his response to the SP Times latest stories. Former member, Oscar winner and actor Paul Haggis who has just recently left the cult, said this was one of the many reasons why he decided to leave. It was mentioned in a letter that her personally wrote to to Tommy Davis. So to any members still in... your information in your PC file is not safe!
Many members also tell of being chased and harassed by the cult for years. Not to mention the heart break of the family disconnection they have endured which continues today.
Basically, the more you know about the cult's inner secrets and the higher position you hold, the more you will be sought after to come back. The cult is in fear that you will spill the beans on the cult's activities. Well like it or not Scientology, there has been an awful lot of bean spilling lately.Continued on the next page
