It has been an awful long time since I posted here. My apologies, life tends to march on tirelessly, whether I pause to write or not! Myself and a few others have started doing live radio interviews on the subject of Scientology’s practice of disconnection, this is intended as a follow on to HBO’s Documentary Going Clear. The idea being…

In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I’d write about my mother, Gen (Geraldine) Whitt nee Ward nee O’Sullivan.   Here is a picture of my mother and I at my wedding, August 22nd 1992:   I love my mother and it saddens me that she has chosen to allow Scientology to mandate disconnection, that she has chosen to follow…

An Open Letter To Scientology’s Most Innocent Victims:

Since leaving scientology, I’ve never quite been able to wrap my wits around why I never called 911 for help. I know why I didn’t, but understanding what that meant in terms of mental and emotional restrictions put in place by scientology has been hard to process. I was questioned about this in deposition by scientology lawyers, who were trying…

In the 14 years that I worked at the scientology headquarters located in Hemet California, Shelly Miscavige was ALWAYS with David Miscavige.   She was his wife, but more importantly she was his personal assistant.   As such, she was responsible for attending all of his meetings, handling his correspondence, running his office and taking care of anything and everything…

Life and other things…

I know I’ve been absent here all too long. In the 8 years since I escaped the scientology compound in Hemet CA, I’ve found an important part of my recovery from scientology has been to force myself to take time off when I need to, life will pass me by if I do nothing but focus on the past. Everything…

There is much to be said on the subject of Scientology’s disconnection practices, and I will cover my experiences with this.   For anyone who claims Scientology supports family, love and relationships, I suggest you thoroughly research their practice of disconnection.   Careful examination will show that behind their glossy façade, the practice of disconnection is really about Scientology’s evil…

Well, a couple of weeks ago we finally had the opportunity to see Paul Thomas Anderson’s new movie, The Master.   Marc had read the screenplay several months ago for an article he did for The Daily Beast:   http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/07/19/is-the-master-based-on-scientology-and-l-ron-hubbard.html   This was a much anticipated movie for me and I was not at all disappointed, in fact I will…

Continued… My first trip to the Riverside Planned Parenthood clinic was some time in April 1994. Jocelyn Webb, a staff member in the medical office, drove me to the appointment with several other women. I did not know why those other women were going, nor did I ask. I had my written approval to leave work for the two hours…

On Forced Abortions, Part 1

Dedicated to and in loving memory of the two children I lost to Scientology.   And with that, my vision blurs and the tears start flowing all over again.   If there was one super power I’ve ever wished for, it was the ability to turn back time.   That’s not possible and I’ll have to live without that, but…

In my wildest dreams, I never imagined I’d be able to push the reset button on my life. And yet that is exactly what I did. At the age of 30, I escaped from the only life I had ever known, deep in the bowels of the Scientology cult. After working for the cult day and night since the age…

This post is dedicated to and in loving memory of Alexander Jentzsch. I never met Alexander, but there is much of his life and circumstances I can relate to as they mirrored my own in many ways.  Alexander was one of so many who lost their lives in an untimely manner – in, around or because of Scientology.   There’s…

  I’d like to share an open invitation to send me links to add to the Related Links page here.   I put this site together in two days, on a small budget, and in my rush I learned I left off some very important sites – particularly Anonymous and Ex Scientologist Message Board.   I’ve since added those and…

To provide some context…

On September 6th, Marc and I posted the below on our fundraising site, I’m reposting here for purpose of context: In 2005 my wife and I fled the compound where we had worked for Scientology for many years. After getting out and starting our lives over, we realized that what went on there was not only wrong but that no…

An update…

Again, a big thank you!!!   In just about a week we are on the home stretch of raising the full amount.   We never imagined this was possible in our wildest dreams.   And more so, so many of you have reached out and given us such incredible messages of support.   As most of you know, Marc has…

How do I say thank you?   I think I have shed more tears these last few days than I can remember… Not sad tears, but the tears that come automatically when you see incredible acts of kindness.   To add some perspective that I felt it really important to share:   Never have the words “every cloud has a…
