Any ex-Scientologists in Canberra?

By arthwollipot - 7 December 2009 21

I am a co-host of a skeptical podcast, which has recently been covering some of the mentions that the Church of Scientology has been receiving in the news. I am looking for an ex-Scientologist willing to be interviewed for a segment of the podcast. I particularly would like an insight into the practices, financial and otherwise, of the church, and a reaction to Senator Xenophon’s recent unsuccessful attempt to initiate a parliamentary inquiry.

I will happily maintain anonymity (including voice changing) if desired.

I don’t want to spam my podcast at everyone, but my email address and the website of the Nonsense Podcast are in my profile.

What’s Your opinion?

Nothing like a media report with a biased view before it starts, maybe we can see you on Today Tonight or ACA in the future.

What information have you used to make that assumption? There are only three types of people with opinion on Scientology, scientologists, ex-scientologists, and people who are not and never were scientologists. The last is obviously useless for an interview, and I am assuming the OP would expect a member of the “church” to follow the party line, leaving on option for information with the least bias.

Oh leaving Scientology is easy. Say ‘bye’ and walk away. Getting them to leave you is the hard part.

Is there such thing as an ex-scientologist, other than the deceased kind?

Way to encourage people to come forward, bd84.

I never claimed to be on the cheer squad lol. I was more pointing out that it’s one of the “religious” organisations where they don’t let go of their followers easily and where death would be one of the few ways of leaving it.

Thanks for that, rebcart. I wasn’t aware of this board. I’ll head on over there.

You may be interested in joining up and talking to the ex-Scis directly. There’s quite a few who used to be on staff in Canberra, who now live elsewhere, and could possibly give you further background info on that org in particular. You can also talk to a few of those whose letters Senator Xenophon tabled in parliament.

(The inquiry is NOT unsuccessful, by the way. The vote on it will happen in February.)

Best of luck with your quest for someone who has escaped this terrible organisation.
