    Surely OSA already knows about people who speak out publically. They monitor press reports and if a member speaks up in the media it's going to get noticed.

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    Would A. E. van Vogt belong on this list?

    pro: prominent SF author, early supporter/friend of LRH. Made quite a big stink within the SF fannish community over Hubbards fail.

    con: not sure if he ever officially "joined" the Church. He ran a Dianetics bookstore for years; but claimed it was all about science, nothing to do with religion. Among the foundational Free-zoners; he never stopped drinking the koolaid. Only really spoke out to friends and acquaintances, never to the feds/general public.

    not sure: Wrote a bunch of short fiction about people being hunted down by deranged evil cultists, but never explicitly named the cult.

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    I propose a series of blogs be started, reposting these people's stories and/or lings to the source articles or videos.

    My blog is here
    RANTS & RAVES
    and I can start another one specifically for ex-Scientologists' stories. Oh, don't worry about any of the "personal info" I put on the blog. THat's not my real name and I post more disinformation on myself than truth. If you read all my posts, you'd see why.

    If anyone else can start a blog, reposting the list and the stories of each of the ex-Scientologists, along with source links, we can FLOOD the blogosphere with this information and make it easier for the General Public to find.

    This would cause moar butthurt to CoS and Slappy.

    Who's willing to do this with me. I'll start another one on Wordpress, but we should have several blogs, so some one should start them on Blogspot, LiveJournals, etc to make them easier to find and harder to shutdown if OSA decides to come after us.

    I'm doing it. Who's with me?

    Alain Stoffen, France (book and lots of TV)

    Raymond Scapillato, France (book)

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    Holy Crap!!! If this is the list of the ones who actually spoke out that is freakin awsome. Multiply by a factor of 10 would probably account for all those out but too afraid to talk or who may have friends and family still in. How many of these are recent let's say within the last 5 years? Slappy is gonna blow another fuse if he hasn't already.

    Would Martine Boubil(Sp?) the lady kidnapped by her brother in France qualify?

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out


    great idea, love it!
    but I myself am too busy to help. :(

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    Yes, William Burroughs was an ex-Scientologist who spoke out. See, for example, Ali's Smile/Naked Scientology or the wikipedia article on Burroughs.

    I don't know if Pierre Ethier is in the Freezone. Marty Rathbun seems to still be a believer and he's on the list, so how to classify other believers who speak out?

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

  27. RightOn Member

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    Not to be arrogant or toot my own horn, but I am an ex-member (3 years in, one year on staff, 9 months in Berlin, 2 and a half months in San Francisco ) who has spoken out and protests the church. I was featured on German TV in ZDF's most recent news documentary. Although I am sure the Scientologists know who I am by now, considering my friends have in fact disconnected from me, I still wish to remain as AlexM.

    I also did an interview with Mark Bunker and AO early this year. I am number 264 on the following website: Scientology - Through the Door - Interviews and wrote most of my Scientology story on ESMB. I think that I also linked it here.

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    Hello!
    if you would like me to add you on as AlexM
    I certainly will.
    I just didn't want the list filled with a bunch of unidentifiable names, as it makes it look less credible.

    GLAD YOUR OUT!!!
  37. alexm Member

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    Sure and thank you very much.

    I understand that but I think if you say AlexM most would know it is me from the ZDF and XenuTv interviews.

    ITT,
    Alexm toots his own horn.

    AlexM is a pretty cool guy. He protests a cult and doesn't afraid of cake.

    re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    This list is fantastic. Thanks for mining Scientology - Through the Door. I think it might be useful to include info on those who are deceased, to prevent anyone the trouble of searching for someone who is, and to encourage anyone who knows any of these people still living to get in touch with them before it's too late. I'll start by marking those who I know are dead, in bold. Adding a few more at the bottom.

    Jim Beebe - worked for the old CAN after leaving - deceased

    Joe Harrington can be added also, he married Birgitta Harrington, after they left the cult, I think. He is deceased also.

    Homer Wilson Smith would count too, I think. He is freezone, but runs a free-to-access news server with only scientology-related groups.

    I don't think Martin Poulter was ever a member, but I could be wrong. Someone might want to verify this.
