Ex-Scientologist story #43, Vermin in Scientology, for RR

[It is simply amazing the number of stories I have found that talk about nasty roaches, spiders and other vermin infesting Scientology properties.  This goes double for the Ft. Harrison Hotel in Clearwater, Scientology hoards their money, why pay for pest control when you have auditing??]

This story by Donald Bear is short and to the point.  When joining Scientology he relied on statements made to the effect that L. Ron Hubbard was, among other things, a war hero and a nuclear scientist.  He was also told that by using Scientology methods he could raise his IQ, a perfect
memory and that it would prevent illness.  All of these claims were,
however, false.  Of the year he spent in Clearwater during 1978-1979
he states:

“I observed numerous conditions which I believe were unhealthy and unsanitary.  In the Fort Harrison I observed approximately 20 individuals living in the garage and sleeping in a confined area in triple bunks. . . Similarly, the staff dormitories were over-crowded.  I observed a small room, designed to house one or two guests, filled  with twelve Scientologists.  Many of them I observed contained

I was in Clearwater at the time of the hepatitis epidemic.  I received  a shot which I was told was a hepatitis vaccine.  The injection was administered by a Scientology “medical officer”.  The Scientologists attempted to conceal the epidemic.  All Scientologists were instructed not to disclose any information pertaining to the epidemic to the community.  The Scientology “medical officer” who “treated” any sickness or illness was imprisoned in the R.P.F. and replaced by another Scientologist who then served as a “medical officer”.

It looks like the Scientologists found a new way to treat disease,
just throw the medical officer into the RPF!!!

Ex-Scientologist story #132, “Scientology preys upon people with good intentions.”

Rich Dunning tells how the hook was set, “In 2001 my life changed forever. My wife, Anne Marie, wanted a career change so she went out and found a new job. After some time, my wife informed me she was working for a Scientologist. One Saturday afternoon, her boss invited us to the local Org to have a look at what Scientology was about. We did all the introductory things that new comers do. We took the free Personality Test, watched various Scientology films and received the free Introductory Dianetics Auditing Session.” This was at the Buffalo org.  Soon after followed the infamous Scientology training routines that like a mental virus start a victim on his way to becoming a Hubbard-Bot. Then Rich went on staff part-time. As usual his pay was misrepresented, when he complained to his superior he was shown Hubbard references stating that HE, Rich Dunning was the cause of the low pay! The spiral down the rabbit hole continued, Rich’s wife joined staff too, part-time, and more and more of their lives centered around Scientology until the group was the most important thing in their lives. Soon strange, sinister words like “ethics,” “Entheta,” “counter intention,” and of course, “disconnection.”  Scientology was, in the end, not strong enough to conquer the hears and minds of this couple, They quit the cult for good and stand ready to help others do the same.  In summing up Rich had this to say, “We are slowly getting our lives back in order and moving on. It has been a hard road though. I started out with a constant fear that Scientologists would appear at my door. Anne Marie did not want to risk the chance of becoming declared a Suppressive Person (SP). However, time, healing and lots of reading, have helped us both to see passed the phobias that were once rooted deep inside of us. Scientology preys upon people with good intentions and hearts, or others who have done something wrong and want to correct it.
