    Re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    A long time back ITT, I pointed out the solution for this problem of "yes/no" voting on whether to inclue each person: make it The Database instead of The List. Then, from The Database, all kinds of queries can be drawn, each producing a list:

    - The List of ex-scientologists who have woken all the way up again
    - The List of Free Zoners
    - The List of Martyologists
    - The List of oddball nutcases who have left and spoken out, but are still oddball nutcases
    - The List of suspicious Scientology deaths a la Lisa McPherson
    - The List of Scientologist suicides
    - The (Super Duper) List of all the above

    ...and all sorts of further queries and sub-queries, like which of the above were in for > 5 years, or which knew Hubbard personally, or which were ex-SO, or which were "clear" or "OT", etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.

    It's disappointing to see this same problem still hanging around when the solution has been pointed out.

    That said, even if my advice is ignored forever, I'll continue to be very, very happy that this EPIC WIN project continues.

    Can more people manually check the count please?
    At the time of saying there were 764 names there were actually 766 names listed.

    hey Johnny, yes I remember your suggestions and your input is much appreciated!
    I think we should try to stay as less complicated as possible.

    I am still asking for help in digging, if anyone who wants to chip in.
    I have had some massive computer problems on and off this week, grrrrr!
    so I have not had a chance to hunt at all

    Re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    I just wanted to say that this list has provided invaluable information. It is an extremely powerful document that helps substantiate claims made to the media and in discussions with exes and those still in. I applaud the efforts of everyone who has contributed.

    With that in mind, it can only get better! Having a way to sort by location would be one nice feature, if possible to add. Other database-like search- and sort-ability would be an even further enhancement.

    BRACING FOR 800!

    Re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    more research needed: Tom Berenger

    there is evidence he has spoken out against scientology (court docs re child rearing/support during a divorce)
    Celebrity Critics of Scientology

    but its only third hand that he was a scientolgist himself rather than just a (?) sci-groupie:
    Tom Berenger - Rotten Tomatoes Celebrity Profile

    and also named in the article in this thread:
    "Top 10 Anti-Scientology Celebs" - Why We Protest | Activism Forum

    His given name is Thomas Michael Moore...does anyone have any better evidence he was actually a scientologist?

    Re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out



    Found this on Berenger:
    Berenger, Tom (Actor):
    "This week's Globe has an article on actor Tom Berenger who is divorcing his wife. He is claiming that they are divorcing because she is a scieno and has spent thousands and thousands of dollars on it." - "The article says, 'Calling it a "cult", in court papers, the 47-year-old star asks the court to ban his wife from sending their three kids to Scientology classes or giving the group money from his child support payments.'" -

    Celebrity Critics of Scientology

    EDITED: this is more info, although still does not say he was a member

    Add to Rose Simpson-

    "Rose left LRH's cohorts behind years ago and, in her present capacity as mayoress of Aberystwyth, revealed in a recent interview how Scientology had narrowed the band's view of the world and how damaging that had been to their music." - Joe Boyd, quoted in A Mind-Bending Experience, The Guardian Weekend, January 4 1997, pp 18-22.

    Jeffrey Aylor- joined Sea Org at age 13. EPF,Escaped after 7 years. Declared
    Jeffrey listened to a taped lecture given by L. Ron Hubbard, in which he made his famous statement "If it isn't true for you, it isn't true." For Jeffrey, this began a questioning process that would eventually lead to his leaving Scientology altogether. "Nobody can force Scientology upon you, but that is exactly what was happening to me," he says.

    Re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    Yes it is going really great.

    Although I was leary in the beginning of the list being sabatoged by anyone being able to edit it on the Wiki, the Wiki was the best way to go for having the list in a place that is safe and to have several people be able to add info and names.

    I think it's great that if we have a name that we need a vote on, to discuss or to confirm, that we can do that in this thread before it goes over to the Wiki. And I am glad that the original list was able to stay here where it was born. :)
    I think it turned out to be a good marriage.

    Thanks to everyone who has spent so much time digging for names and info. It is getting tough. But again, hopefully more new names will come forward now. And thanks to all the Wiki people who edit and add names and info and to those who created it. :)

    On that note..... again I would LOVE to see the list hit 1000 by Jan 1st.

    We have a LONG way to go. As of today we need 230 more names to get to 1000 by Jan 1st. Thats only 53 days away.

    It's a a big challenge! Who's up for it? DO IT FAGGOTS!
    (pretty please?)

    As the members of the IFA do not wish to participate in the practice of an altered philosophy they have elected to practice their chosen philosophy independently of the church.
    They believe that, since the death of the founder of the movement, the Church of Scientology has strayed from the original philosophy and purpose of the group which Hubbard first researched and developed.
