All true Mr. Bad except for the freeloader thing. It quite pissed me off when I heard (way back) that Debbie got what the church called a hefty "severance" package when she left the SO. The church has a caste system based on how much you donate and also on how much you know when you leave the SO. Those at the bottom get a freeloader bill. Those at the top who also have potentially damaging info get a big check from church lawyers.
At first I thought she was brilliant. Now I'm beginning to think she's in La-La land. Or very confused.
This is the first I've heard of a severance package.
And this pisses me off!
But I'm not surprised because all you hear about are double standards in La La Land.
Now I just think she's a corrupt bitch, and I bet the fact that she didn't leave with a massive freeloaders debt pisses off 1000's of people who were used and discarded with a freeloaders bill. (not because they want to be apart of this nuthouse, but because it's disgraceful and disrespectful to be called a freeloader after you work your ass off)
I worked like a rented mule while I was in the Sea Org, and I went through it because massive lies were told that gave me a false impression as to who L. Ron Hubbard was and what $cientology is. (which I went over exhaustively in the Your Story section)
When I left the I was handed a hefty freeloader debt along with this message: "if you want to be welcome around here and spend time with your so-called $cientology friends, you better pay this "debt.""
I was 20-years-old and I was pressured (hard sold) to quit my college education, and I was given assurances of what life was like in the $ea Org and I was sold on a "greater purpose"
Then, I got to Celebrity Centre International and everything dissolved the second I got there, and I watched the superficial culture that catered to the money. No rules applied to people with money.
When I was in the Sea Org, I spent 4 hours a day studying L. Ron Hubbard's bullshit that had nothing to do my job, but it did generate more money onto my freeloader debt, which kept accruing more money after every course.
To make matters worse, I wasn't given a proper uniform. My uniformed consisted of parts left over from people who blew. I slept 8 to a room. My room was searched for contraband without my presence. My mail was opened and read. People threatened to break my legs for not reaching a quota. I was coerced into at least 8 sec checks and O/W write ups. I was also coerced into signing a gag order that prevent me speaking to the press when I left. I worked 14 hours a day 7 days a week and I had to ask permission for a day off! When my parents flew out to visit me, my CSW was denied to spend time with them.
In other words, the culture is pure shit. And this is how everyone gets treated because they churn through staff like there was no tomorrow because they don't give a fuck about people. They had to recruit one person a week because a least one person a week left. While I was there for 2 years I watched more than 100 people go through what I went through and then leave disgraced by a Cult that gave good decent people a freeloaders debt.
This is bullshit.
Then you hear, "Debbie Cook got a severance package."
