My Escape from Scientology

above the clouds

This is my story of escaping from Scientology’s Sea Organization. I spent 18 years at the so-called Flag Land Base, Clearwater, FL and 2 years on the cruise ship Freewinds at the Caribbean. The schedule on the ship was much more tough than at Flag and the sugarcoat treatment I received at the beginning melted away very quick. I ended up in the brutal atmosphere of the galley with a nasty Restaurant Manager as my senior. I acquired a hernia and I had to continue carrying heavy racks for several more months. I also noticed the way the Captain of the

Scientology Jokes That Would Count As Blasphemy

heavens

Just so everyone understands, joking is not allowed in Scientology. You get sent to Ethics and will probably undergo sec checking (confessional). Here is the theory: “Joking & Degrading” or J&D in Scientology slang is done because the person had committed serious harmful acts and now he has to attack that entity to “prove that it is bad” and therefore the harmful acts against it are “justified” and therefore he will not “feel bad” because of them. Therefore the handling is to “pull” the person’s overs and withholds, and as a result, after doing all the ethics stuff that goes

Christmas In The Sea Org

Mecca

Christmas is one of those times when Sea Org members are entitled to some fun. We usually got some Xmas bonuses, we were able to go shopping for a few hours and … we had some parties! The photo above is the Flag building made up of marzipan. Here are some Beer & Cheese party photos:   XMas banquet in the old Clearwater Building dining room that we hated so much… XMas tree from OSA: And finally a clip from a Xmas concert from the Fort Harrison auditorium:            

The Scientology Website Empire

Since I left the Sea Org, I spent a lot of time studying the subject of websites and internet marketing. I decided to start a new blog on a Scientology-related subject and I was trying to figure out my domain name (if you are not familiar with this subject, it’s the address of a website). I recalled seeing a website a long time ago, it was called TheTruthAboutScientology.com, which would have been a proper domain name, and when I typed in, I saw that it didn’t have a website connected to it. I looked up the recent history and I

Is Scientology Leader David Miscavige Evil?

david-miscavige-flag-building

My Encounters With DM During my 20 years in Scientology’s Sea Org, I had the (un)fortunate experience to run into him a few times and I will tell you my experiences, and also about the idea that Sea Org members have about him. Who Is David Miscavige? David Miscavige is the head of the Church of Scientology. His official title is Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center (RTC). What is the Board? Theoretically, a company has a Board of Directors. He is the chairman. I have never seen the board itself… It doesn’t exist. It’s a smoke

How Did Scientology Get Tax Exempt Status?

There have been articles on President Trump wanting to revoke Scientology’s tax exempt status. Here is the original article of how Scientology became tax exempt in the first place. March 9, 1997 Scientology’s Puzzling Journey From Tax Rebel to Tax Exempt By DOUGLAS FRANTZ On Oct. 8, 1993, 10,000 cheering Scientologists thronged the Los Angeles Sports Arena to celebrate the most important milestone in the church’s recent history: victory in its all-out war against the Internal Revenue Service. For 25 years, I.R.S. agents had branded Scientology a commercial enterprise and refused to give it the tax exemption granted to churches.

Leaving Scientology, Waking Up To The American Nightmare

Freewinds Reboarding Pass

Leaving A World In A Bubble Isn’t Easy In case you never read my previous posts, I spent 20 years in Scientology’s top level restricted “religious order”, the Sea Organization. I know this post will probably be shared in other areas and therefore it is written in such a language that anyone will understand. I want to bring the fact to your attention that this story could have happened to a relative of yours and it could have been another religion or cult or community, etc. The main thing I want to say is that such people will fall onto

A Fine of 40 Million HUF for the Scientology Church Because of Unlawful Data Management

Scientology Budapest Raid

The Church of Scientology of Budapest, Hungary was closed off with police cars and cordons last Wednesday. There were police standing in front of the headquarters, and the investigators were going in and out. About thirty more locations were searched nationwide. The National Data Protection and Information Authority has been investigating since December last year because of the fact that more people complained: the rights of the Scientologists’ data management practices could have been compromised. A few days later, due to illegal data handling, the National Institute of Data Protection and Information (NAIH) imposed the maximum 20-20 million HUF (USD 250,000)

My Story Showed Up In The Media

HirTV

Well, the details got changed around a bit, but this is what was published yesterday on a Hungarian news site… A Contract For One Billion Years In September, the story of a deserter Scientologist from Hungary, Péter Nyíri, came to the Internet. Nyíri became a member of one of the most infamous organizations in the Church, the so-called Sea Org. This is a sort of religious order of Scientologists, members work on church owned ships. They need to sign a contract that they undertake to serve the Church for the next one billion years (i. e. after their death in
