Godly Power

The Church of Scientology has elaborate means of preventing its leavers from spilling its secrets, according to ex-members.

“For years, the Church of Scientology chased down and brought back staff members who tried to leave,” writes “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. Others said that, as a condition for leaving, the church cowed them into signing embellished affidavits that could be used to discredit them if they ever spoke out.”
