    • Joyce Miller - joined aged 10 under her father’s influence, came out as gay in August 2015, New York - video
      Kickstarter Description: A Repressed Lesbian Ex-Scientologist Satire of "The Hours"
      Short Film title: My 28 Years of Heterosexuality Was Just a Phase
    https://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/my-28-years-of-heterosexuality-was-just-a-phase

    https://www.kickstarter.com/project...years-of-heterosexuality-was-just/description

    "My 28 Years of Heterosexuality Was Just a Phase" is based on a humor essay of the same title that I published on the internet with McSweeney's Internet Tendency in August of 2015. It's a satire about realizing I'm gay in adulthood after coming of age as a Scientologist. I wrote it as a way to mobilize myself at a challenging moment of coming out during an extremely delayed realization of sexual identity, while beginning to unpack the psychological and emotional impact of growing up involved involved with a cult.
    While using the internet, for better or for worse, to start figuring out what I was going through, I looked at a number of gay conversion therapy testimonies on YouTube, and read a lot of distraught online message board posts from women who, like me, were disrupted in the process of realizing their sexual identity until later on, but don't have the same safety, resources, or support network.
    From my experience, I am compelled to explore aspects and intersections of religious homophobia, sexual repression, and brainwashing. "My 28 Years of Heterosexuality Was Just a Phase" is the first of other projects I would like to create around these stigmatized and isolating issues.
    Funds for this Kickstarter will go exclusively towards the production costs which include:
    -Brief but essential rehearsal day
    -Sound and Equipment
    -Paying cast and crew for their risk, talent, and hard work.
    -Location
    -Travel
    -Insurance
    -Soundtrack
    -Post Production
    -Festival Campaigns
    We are aiming for a short but focused 2-3 day shoot and day of rehearsal.

    [IMG]

    Joyce Miller was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and moved to New York to study acting when she was 17. She has published humor essays for McSweeney's Internet Tendency and worked on a number of downtown and independent productions alongside her personal video projects. She appears onscreen in recently released "Tango on the Balcony" (Minos Papas), upcoming "Cold Fusion" (Eric Sanders), and an August production with RADY & BLOOM Collective Playmaking. She just completed the transformative & revolutionary Betty's Daughter Arts Collaborative Body Ecology Spring Intensive.
    Risks and challenges

    The Church of Scientology has a history of litigation towards dissent, however in more recent years seems to have become more adaptable towards critique possibly due to the volume and diversity of voices on the internet. I am not interested in alienating or shaming individual people for their spiritual beliefs, nor do I feel it is decent or productive to do so. Exploring certain personal experiences by extension necessitates addressing my interactions with Scientology and its written doctrines.

    SO glad to add this name to the list. Izzy AND his wife are OSA helpers.
    Who could forget his racist remarks on that video?
    I hope Izzy is good and pissed.

    I think someone should mirror this vid and save before it disappears!

    I'm not sure how worthwhile you may find this, but I didn't find Tom or Rebecca McKee mentioned here.

    High school sweethearts reunite, marry four decades later

    ...in 1970, Rebecca’s parents, staunch Scientologists, pulled her out of school.

    “I was forced to go to Scientology college in Los Angeles.”

    <snipped>

    Because the religion was so important to her family, Tom, a Catholic, enrolled in a course at the Scientology Celebrity Centre.

    That class proved to be the undoing of their relationship.

    “I asked a lot of questions,” he said. “They didn’t like my questions. I was told I wasn’t welcome there and I should not see Rebecca anymore.”

    <snipped>

    Eventually, Rebecca’s entire family left Scientology.

  20. Is Ned Mc Crink on the Big List? Should he be? It appears he has already come out as an Indie.

    From a leaked e-mail posted on Mike Rinder's blog, it appears Ned Mc Crink was still in the COS as of 12/18/14:

    * * * * * BEGIN QUOTATION * * * * *

    From: Ned McCrink
    Sent: Dec 18, 2014 2:15 AM
    Subject: What Postulates for 2015?

    Ned McCrink here, reporting from Orange County, California!

    To finish 2014 and start to 2015, I rounded up my personal Scientology comm lines from around the World. It was a lot of work because I’ve met literally thousands of extraordinary beings on all continents.

    Whether at Flag in Clearwater, the Ship, LA or here in OC, it’s a network of Free Theta on the broader 3rd & 4th Dynamics. This has put my anchor points way out. And it strengthens my ARC for each of you. Fantastic!

    Though our paths may have crossed for only minutes or years, we are – each of us – a vital part of Scientology. This is what I want to communicate:

    If I could plant a micro-chip in your brain to command you go into your Org and get onto Service – I’d be tempted! But that’s not Scientology! That’s a whole different thing! That would be an anti-Scientology operation!

    I can only try to spark – in you – your own determinism; to ignite in you, your urge to reach for Freedom and Ability; to truly grasp Ron’s tech – thorough and straight – so you move up to higher states; a higher Intelligence; a higher Dynamic; a higher aesthetic band of existence. Because exceptional individuals and crack auditors are the products of Scientology Orgs.

    Others can push, pull, encourage or sway. But it’s only you who can demand of yourself to place the data in the Basic Books into your own universe as your knowledge. Whatever it takes to set you up to successfully study the Basics: Purif, SRD, KTL, Study Tech or even a grounding in logic (Data Series), you can’t truly call yourself a Scientologist until you get a good grasp of the core of subject itself.

    That knowledge – and that knowledge alone – puts you on a rock-solid path: To higher intelligence, higher Dynamic and higher states.

    When you are on that path, you’ll begin to reap the rewards that Ron wanted so much for each of us; so that you have the data – and use it, naturally and routinely in life; so it becomes part of who you are. When the data starts to engage in your life, you will then – and for real – be able to:

    “get the show on the road in all branches of human activity including Scientology.”
    (ref: HCOPL 26/05/61 Quality Counts)

    Ron offered these gifts of Ability and Freedom – with not a single string attached – to use as you see fit.

    It’s yours for the taking!
    Live Long and Prosper!

    Ned McCrink

    P.S. If the urge strikes you, feel free to pass this along to your network of Free Theta!

    * * * * * * END QUOTATION * * * * *

    However, on January 29, 2016 a "Ned McCrink" responded enthusiastically to the announcement on the Independent Scientology Religious Liberty League blog of the First Independent Church of Scientology:

    * * * * * BEGIN QUOTATION * * * * *

    Ned McCrink January 29, 2016 at 7:34 am Reply
    I’m so excited I can’t stand it!!! THIS is the group that I want to be part of!!!

    We’ll make it zoom!!! Through Self-Determinism and enlightened personal initiative!

    Through the kind of “Word of Mouth” that money can’t buy.


    Ned McCrink January 29, 2016 at 7:35 am Reply
    “Bodies in the Shop” will be “Out The Top”!!! We’ll take A LOT smaller amount of money from A LOT more people.

    And it WILL be the “kind” of Ideal Org where, “Nobody would think of attacking it”.

    Why???? Because it will have a stellar reputation and operate on the Highest Survival Concept: “Greatest Good with Minimal Destruction along the Dynamics”.

    And Why???? Because the the undying goal is to make GREAT SCIENTOLOGISTS!!! (the kind that truly know what they are doing and what the Mission of Scientology actually is!!!

    And now . . . . For David:

    “Na, Na, Na, Na!

    “Na, Na, Na, Na!!

    Hey, Hey, Hey . . . Goodbye!!!

  35. I'm here. Any questions?
  36. So my name is weird huh?

  37. That is not me in the completions list. That is a Latin American man who did his services in Clearwater at Flag. I met him once. I was in the Sea Org From 1992 to 2007.

    Ah, then I owe Trev an apology. Sorry Trev, you were right!

    David: thank you for clarifying, although this info unfortunately does leave us with no corroborating evidence that you were indeed a member of CoS from a source other than yourself, which is needed for being added to the list now:
    Doing my own googling only brings up an empty profile with this pic:
    david.jpg?w=206&amp;h=300.jpg
    If of course you do not wish to have your name added then no action is necessary.
  39. RightOn Member

    Welcome! I am in the creator of the "Big List"
    I certinaly hope you will want to add your name to the list? :)
    It gives others the courage to come forward. Strength in numbers.
    Let us know and again WELCOME!
