Ex-Scientologist story #87, “I was swindled and lied to”

Lawrence Toomajan became a Scientologist when he was only 17.  He joined staff and was stationed in NY FDN, and Flag.  He was an active member for 10 years, 1976-1986 which of course were some interesting times for the cult.  This is the era of Snow White, the Scientology plot to remove or mitigate damaging material about L. Ron Hubbard from the FBI and other government offices so that he could live openly without fear of being arrested.  To make a long story short a bunch of Scientologists, including Mary Sue Hubbard, went to federal prison.  Similar events took place in Canada where Scientology got a good beating by the courts and the press.

This man’s story is long as he goes into detail about his employment and experiences with other Scientologists.  As usual in these stories the life of a staffer leaves something to be desired, ” The food served in the church was rationed, unhealthful and not in sufficient enough amounts to nourish anyone. I bought most of my meals outside the church locally with my own money, not with church pay.”

Eventually he found his way to the truth, “In October 2002, I stumbled upon some information on the internet by sheer luck. I found the transcripts of Scientology’s much guarded confidential upper auditing levels called OT Sections 1 to 8, and read them for the first time.

As a result of reading these OT levels, every question I ever had or might think of about Scientology, was answered, forever.

It became real to me for the first time ever, how confused I was about Scientology, and not even aware of it. This knowledge was denied to me for years by church staff. Instead of being given the facts, I was swindled and lied to, by staff, looking for a quick profit and to wreck people’s lives forever thereafter.”
