    If anyone wants to do the press release.
    ANY TAKERS?



    List Of 1,000 Former Church OF Scientology Members Publicly Speak Out Against The Church


    Over 1,000 former members of the Church of Scientology have spoken out publicly against the so-called church, according to a list researched and compiled by Anonymous over the last year and announced on April 11th 2010.

    The individuals on the list have spoken out under their real names against the abuses seen and experienced within the so-called church despite being subjected to Scientology's "Fair Game" policy, which gives members permission to destroy its critics. Most former members do not ever speak out against the church, largely due to this policy.

    The stories told by these ex-members are similar to the revelations made recently by former members speaking out against the Scientology in highly-visible stories in the New York Times, the St. Petersburg Times, and most recently, in a five-part series on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360. According to the Church of Scientology, these former members are "liars" and "apostates" with an agenda to destroy the church. Anonymous wonders whether Scientology will also call all 1,000 of these former members liars.

    The list, which continues to grow daily, contains many names of individuals who no longer practice Scientology at all as well as many others who do. What they have in common is that each of them has decided to step forward and tell the world what happened during their time within organized Scientology. While their backgrounds vary widely, their stories are similar and many themes run throughout: rigid control of information, enforced disconnection from loved ones who are critical of the group, zealous campaigns to squeeze money from members, physical and emotional abuse of children and adults, slave labor camps designed to reinforce indoctrination, and many other disturbing practices. The problem is not limited to any particular country. Their compelling stories emerge from numerous countries all around the world.

    Anonymous now celebrates the compilation and publication of a 1,000-strong list of human voices no longer silenced, and never again alone. You can find the list online here: Former Church Of Scientology Members Who Have Spoken Out. Documentation is provided for each name included in the list.

    All remaining victims or observers of abuse within organized Scientology are invited to speak out and add their names and their messages.

    We hope that the courage shown by those named on this list empowers more people to come forward with their stories of abuse, and ultimately prevents such abuses from ever taking place again.

    Since February 2008, Anonymous has protested the crimes and abuses of the "Church of Scientology" and its many front groups. These protests, as well as public awareness efforts like the Big List, will continue.

    A minor correction:
    Lloyd's name is spelled incorrectly. He and Thea were husband and wife. Greenberg is the correct way to spell it.

    Re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    Fixed on the wiki.

    Re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    thanks,
    but the whole list on this thread is outdated.
    The list posts in this thread were totally uneditable until this past week. Prior to last week the list here was not editable for me.

    I have not had the time to go through each name and cross reference it with the Wiki yet. (All new names go on the wiki not here. The list here stays at 399)

    I need to go through and correct and add links to what I can when I have time.Although any vids from Youtube will not embed, so I leave them out.

    Thanks for letting me know :)
    I corrected the list here

    Re: Big List Of Ex Scientologists Who Have Spoken Out

    I noticed that only particular youtube links don't appear as embedded videos in posts such as my spoiler one. It's the links that have a given time offset at the end of the url, like #t=4m33s for example if you're getting it to start playing 4 minutes and 33 seconds into the video.
    Most likely it's just the serverside code of this forum failing to pick that up when parsing links, with a regex match or however it's done.

    Re: Big List of over 1000 Exes Who Have Spoken Out

    holy cow thanks Mary!!

    question though. ....
    Are you are sure these are all exs? Or did you know of these people?
    Because many people go up against the church who are not ex scis .(as you already know)
    None of these names are in the Sci data base. (which doesn't mean they are not scis)
    Any completion records?
    The last one says Medical/Podiatric Malpractice???


    and for your website, this link goes directly to the "big list" It's a better link to use .

    Re: Big List of over 1000 Exes Who Have Spoken Out

    Does anyone have access to a copy of "What Really Happened To The Class Of '65?", by Michael Medved & David Wallechinsky (1976, ISBN-10: 0394400747)?
    Hardcover in 1978, ISBN-10: 0491024649 and ISBN-13: 978-0491024648

    It seems both authors were in Scientology but the excerpts given here don't specify which author is telling which first person excerpt (minus the excerpt about someone else who left)

    dam shame the presser on this fine effort hasnt gone out yet... in hindsight, keeping it in this thread (and not doing it under translation/text subforum where they always get done & everyone would see it) was prolly a bad idea :(

    John Leemhuis - left after 10 years, recruiter (body router)

    "Amsterdam daily, Het Parool, today carries an article in which former Scientology recruiter John Leemhuis explains why he has left the organization and joined the ranks of other defectors who, while still pursuing Scientology’s ‘tech’, want nothing to do with the so-called ‘Church’ of Scientology.
    Leemhuis: “In the past it was all about Hubbard, about the ideals. Now it merely is a money machine. It is all mind-control, PR, and money, money, money. Nothing else.”
