Ex-Scientologist story #66, Craig & Suzanne Houchin

Craig Houchin states, “Suzanne has been a Scientologist since age 11. I have been a Scientologist since 1984, and we were married in the Church in 1986. I am an OT IV, Class IV, KTL, LOC and L11 completion. Suzanne is Grade III, Permanent Class IV, KTL, LOC, PDC and Briefing Course trained.”

But all these courses and levels didn’t lead to any outstanding gains in the world of happiness.  ”

By 2001, we were wrung out spiritually and financially. The trade-off just wasn’t worth it anymore and we began to quietly drift away. But, as well-indoctrinated Scientologists, we didn’t dare to discuss our doubts with each other.  For “good Scientologists”, the band of acceptable communication, even between the most intimate people, is extremely narrow. So, we simply didn’t talk about the big white elephant in the room — until about 3-years ago. That’s when Suzanne broke the cardinal sin of the Church and began to LOOK.”

As soon as Scientologists begin to look the game is over.  There is just too much information out there, there is nowhere that Scientology can hide.

“For that reason, all of the blogs have been immensely valuable to us in this journey, but it was Counterfeit Dreams that, for both of us, finally stilled our minds, moved us from doubt, and marked a dramatic turning point in our journey.

That’s why it is such a privilege for us to make this announcement on Jeff’s blog.

We are no longer members of the Church of Scientology.

We are no longer Scientologists.

We are members of the human race, and as such, we want to help end David Miscavige’s reign of terror.”

Look under book reviews for Jefferson Hawkins book, Counterfeit Dreams.
