Ex-Scientologist story #316, -Get a life, Get a refund!!

This post was made on May 26, 2006 in the newsgroup Alt.religion.Scientology by former Ron Bot Shawn M. Hollenshead.

The consequences of involvement with Scientology:

You are going to spend lots of money or lots of time. If you have money or  access to money then you will be persuaded to spend it. I personally spent  my college savings on scientology services and for 3 years I spent 8 hours a  day at the church studying so that I could get the results I was promised. I  lived very poorly for those 3 years and realized that I had nothing to show for all my hard work. It is scary to come to such a conclusion. I am
 currently seeking a refund from scientology as I feel that the services did  not improving my life the way that I was promised they would.  I started in scientology when I was 18; I am 30 currently and feel like I am  just starting my adult life. This is only one repercussion of  scientology.

I feel that my request for a refund is the right thing to do.. When you are  old something that doesn’t perform as it should or only sometimes works the  way it is supposed to I don’t see that as a fair exchange.   I am able to see if something has made a great difference in my life.  I  think that it is dishonest to say something is beneficial to you if you  can’t see the daily results in your hard work. I have no interest in letting someone keep my money because I an agreement. Had scientology been as  effective as it was initially sold to me I would still be involved. An  agreement is based on fair exchange. If  I buy a $60,000 BMW, it had better  be drivable otherwise I am not just ging to keep it parked in the garage as  a nice souvenir.
