To some, Scientology is a bona fide religion based upon rigorous research and its doctrines are akin to universal scientific laws. But to others, including some former members, Scientology ... See full summary »
A series featuring stories from former members of the Church of Scientology whose lives have been affected by the Church's harmful practices. Along with a team of former high-ranking Scientology insiders who understand the inner workings and policies of the organization, Leah gives the victims a chance to be heard.
I used to think Scientology was extremely intriguing and fascinating and spent way too many hours of my life checking it out, reading about it, and reading a rather large & glossy Scientology primer I had found at Chapters, and then ultimately dipping my toes into it in the form of one of their cheapest and lowest level communication courses. Although I didn't know any Scientologists, the whole idea of organizing, quantifying, and mapping out "the path" to "enlightenment" really appealed to me. However, after doing my due diligence, and reading A LOT on the subject, I finally decided it was not for me and didn't even finish that first communication course.
That was when I got my own personal taste of what Scientology is really like. I began getting bombarded with calls from members of the local org encouraging me to come finish the course. At first, I would politely put them off telling them I no longer had the time to come in, then that I was no longer interested in Scientology. When the calls continued (for years), I got more short with them and told them clearly to stop calling and to remove me from their contact lists. At one point, they told me it wasn't possible to remove me from their contact lists, and that's when I really knew this whole thing is INSANE!!! I just hope that, as Rinder says in Episode 2, that the whole thing just implodes on itself when the world finally wakes up from the delusion that is Scientology. THANK YOU FOR THIS EXPOSÉ!!!
