I haven't posted for a bit, and the reason why is because I've finally got someone dear to me out of Scientology. That is my girlfriend. She was sent from Chicago to Nashville in 2010 when she was 16 to work on staff at the Nashville org. When we met, she was so afraid to tell me that she worked there. I found it a bit odd, but wondered if Scientology was misunderstood. Then I did the research and heard her stories about the abuse she received. From ridiculous schedules with no pay to them verbally abusing her, they treated her like shit. Yet she didn't leave because she was afraid of family disconnection. She knew it was bullshit, but was too scared. Until they put her on a schedule so bad that she broke down. She left the cult less than a week ago, and she decided to tell her family to fuck off. We've received knocks from them and even threats to call the police, but we've stood our ground and now her family blocked her from Facebook. Even so, she doesn't regret her decision at all.
