    Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    On 11 April 2010, the Big List exceeded 1000 names. In celebration, a new thread was created:


    a bit out of date, current list is located at
    The following is a list of ex Scientologists that have left and have spoken out against Scientology.


    Some people thought it was a better idea for various reasons to have this list on a wiki page and voted in a poll to stop adding names in this thread.

    So it doesn't get confusing....
    All new names, links and additonal info will be updated to the wiki only. All people are welcomed to update the wiki.

    If you do not want to do the wiki, you can still submit new names and info etc... in this thread and the "wiki people" will add them over there. okey doke?
    The count on THIS list here will stay at 399 names.

    ****THE LIST ON THE WIKI NOW HAS 801 names!!!
    ******LET'S PUSH IT TO 900! GO GO GO! ****

    Thanks to all who have contributed names!

    Click here for the Why We Protest wiki site:

    To edit the list, please register for the wiki (only takes a second, and doesn't require email). For a quick overview of wiki formatting, see How to use this wiki.

    There will be an intermittently updated tally of names on the wiki."

    We are not going to include critics names who are not ex-Scis.
    ONLY ex-Scis names who have spoken out in an interview, a testimony, publicly, in protest, books, articles, or openly on a forum or website or what have you. Sound fair?

    There will be mistakes, typos, and misinformation due to the fact that it is just being set up and updated.
    Names are listed Alphabetically by LAST name.


    *Please check and double check names and facts before submitting new name.. THANKS!!!!

    The purpose of this list is to give courage to others who are still in to finally leave, or those who have already left to speak out.

    Also perhaps those that are still in may recognize a name they may have known before and are unaware they have left.
    It is also important to show how extensive this list is, especially now that four top execs have come foward.

    It shoots BIG holes into Scientology's claims of that there are only a handful of disgruntled members who have left and have spoke out.
    When put all together, it is pretty mind blowing.
    Thanks to all that contributed to this list!!!
    Any BLANKS that can be filled in, (how long they were in, their position,deceased etc.. would be helpful)

    Please don't start name-fagging anons that are ex-Scilons. It's not right. If AnonSparrow or anyone else wanted their real name published here, they would have said so.

    I am an ex-Scilon(not on the list) and don't give a shit where my name is published but others may not agree. Ask them first.

    Graham Berry was never a Scilon. Debbie Cook has never spoken out.

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    Graham was taken off the list, it got copy pasted from a list that had lawyers, critics and members all listed together.
    I am just trying to help.
    I thought it was important that we had a list so everybody can see just how extensive the list is. Some people thought it was a good idea, so I went for it.
    I will pull all names off that want to be off of course.If you do't want your name onthe list I will also leave it off.
    It is a work in progress, and of course there will be mistakes and corrections.

    These lists are readily available on the internet, I doubt I did OSA any favors.
  37. RightOn Member

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    Thanks. but I am only including actual names of people (not knicknames or other IdS) who spoke out and found these names through other wesbites, testimonies etc....
    I inlcuded one anons name, but he is already name fagged and does multiple vids for Youtube,, but Smurf said to ask and get his permission first, so I just took the name off.
    If any Anons that are name fagged and were ex sci and want to be included on the list, I will add them.

    Again this list was done to show how extensive it is, and I wanted to compile it especially because 4 more top execs came out.If anyone thinks this is a bad idea... let me know and we can vote to keep it on or off.
    I think it's important.
    All the people on the list have spoken out in court cases and sworn testimonies etc... and listed on the

    Please try to check the list crrefully, you guize are sending me lots of names that are already on the list.
    And this list is only for EX SCIs, that have spoken OUT.
    Not critics.
    Trying to show just how many people have spoken out, maybe if people still in see this list, they may be inspired to leave, or if they are out, maybe they will join in on speaking out.
