Now, thanks to tye's publicity, I've been inspired to learn more about scientology. And feel like I need to say that I've taken up that shining light and will aim to spread the good word, and clear as many people as I can. THANKS TYEDAWG

Chased by their church: When you try to leave Scientology, they try to bring you back

For years, the Church of Scientology chased down and brought back staff members who tried to leave.

Ex-staffers describe being pursued by their church and detained, cut off from family and friends and subjected to months of interrogation, humiliation and manual labor.

One said he was locked in a room and guarded around the clock.

Some who did leave said the church spied on them for years.

Wait, wait. The drunken masked stick figures are the anonymous folk who are brave enough to stand up to the church? Like yourself? You're a hero!

There's seeing when you are brainwashed and there's extreme paranoia. Your OSP behaviour suggests the latter.

"He put this 4½ years old little boy - Derek Greene - into the chain locker for two days and two nights. It's a closed metal container, it's wet, it's full of water and seaweed, it smells bad. But Derek was sitting up, on the chain, in this place, on his own, in the dark, for two days and two nights. He was not allowed to go to the potty. I mean he had to go in the chain locker on his own, soil himself. He was given food. And I never went near it, the chain locker while he was in there, but people heard him crying. That is sheer, total brutality. That is child abuse."

Resistance is futile. Become one with anonymous. It only hurts for a second.

Scientology investigation overdue

In Print: Sunday, November 8, 2009
* Multimedia: More on Scientology, including video interviews with the defectors and previous coverage of the church.

When workers for the Church of Scientology sign a contract agreeing to serve in the church's Sea Organization for "the next billion years," the church can twist that agreement into a license to harass its workers, track them down if they leave and pressure them to return. What true church, what caring employer, would trample on the dignity and free choices of its own members in such a way? And what are authorities going to do about it?

In a three-day special report last week, the St. Petersburg Times' Joe Childs and Thomas C. Tobin told the stories of former members of the so-called Sea Org, Scientology's most dedicated labor force, and the ordeal the church put them through after they tried to leave without permission.

Sea Org members hold jobs such as gardeners, cooks, laborers, secretaries and assembly line workers. The church demands sacrifice and obedience from its employees, and what does it deliver in return? Sea Org workers are provided room and board but paid a pittance — far below minimum wage. Those interviewed by the Times said they were required to work extended hours, deprived of sleep, separated from their spouses, subjected to multiple daily head counts to ensure no one slipped away, punished if they fell short of expectations and required to sign "confessions" the church kept and later used against them.

If they wanted to quit, these workers could not just resign from their jobs and leave. Church policy required that they "route out," a process that could take months of daily interrogations and intense pressure. If they gathered their meager belongings and ran, church security teams and private investigators tracked them by using their bank and credit card records as well as personal information they had given the church about their backgrounds, family and friends. Once located and confronted, the workers were told if they didn't return to the Sea Org, their chance at "eternity" — to be reborn into a new body each time they died — would be lost. In effect, Scientology held the cards.

If they succumbed and returned to the Sea Org, some received even worse treatment. They were placed on a punishment detail called the Rehabilitation Project Force, enduring weeks or months of manual labor, limited food and rest, and enforced silence. In one instance, former Sea Org member Don Jason told the Times that after he agreed to return he was held captive in a locked cabin aboard the Scientology ship Freewinds, with a security camera trained on him even as he slept. He eventually escaped from the ship and is now telling his story.
