Ex-Scientologist story #383, “I’m sick of the Church being run by lawyers.”

John Cullison spend some ten years in the cult before seeing that it was all just a scam.  He was on staff, at a mission.  University Way mission, then Burien mission on staff,  and the Seattle Org.  His level  of training included the ARC Straightwire and the Pro TRs.  As usual doubts began to creep in and once that happens the floodgates are open for some very serious concerns, here is what John had to say:

I’m sick of the willingness to drag people way too far into debt for services.  I’m tired of buying services and then being coerced into spending it one something else, just so someone can get a stupid stat up.  I’m so sick of the focus on statistics as a measure of success instead of the Church having the integrity to get people what it promised in the first place, with statistics as the INDICATOR rather than the PURPOSE.  I’m sick of the Church being run by lawyers.  I’m tired of being treated like a product instead of a being.  I’m done being driven into agreement with bullshit I don’t agree with — ‘or else’.  I’m done with being treated like I’m nothing and the group is everything, the only thing that matters.  I’m done with stupid course room rules.  And I’m especially tired of the insanely poor PR the Church generates for itself.

Here is an interesting video of a 2011 picket in Clearwater,  Usually protesters don’t get this close to Sea Org members.
