Rosie Pace was just 13 when she started Scientology along with her sister. She was a highly classed auditor at the age of sixteen. She soon found her way to Clearwater, the Mecca of perfection in Scientology. Only, don’t get sick if you are on staff, “I had a high fever and swollen glands and I couldn’t get out of bed. And I was ordered out of bed because there was going to be a meeting with the senior CS of the Flag Land Base. So, I got out of bed and he screamed and screamed and screamed and ordered me back on post the next morning. Also, my sister, Annie, who’s not here, was sick, also. And he ordered her back on post the next morning and said he would not tolerate any illness.”
She came to Clearwater for advanced courses, NED for OTs. But they didn’t roll out the red carpet, “. . .which was supposed to be beyond your wildest dreams and it was just going to handle everything that’s wrong with you, and that I would be treated like gold when I got to Flag Land Base. And I later found out that was an absolute lie. . . ants all over the bed. There were about eight to ten beds in each room, no air conditioner, luggage all over the room; you could hardly walk. There were roaches all over the entire building.”
This is why she left: “Because I hated it. I wanted to die while I was there. I was hoping — and this is the truth — I was hoping that when I went to the doctor that he would tell me I had cancer. And that — that way, I could get out, because, mentally, I could not leave Flag Land Base unless I was dying.”
There is a lot more to this story and it is well worth the time to read it. Remember, these are the people who think they have the answers for the world. Yeah.
