    Why I Left Scientology

    By Carmen Llywelyn, Gawker, June 23, 2015

    I was a Scientologist for eight years. Although I identified as one I didn’t really understand what actually being a Scientologist fully entailed until after a couple of years of being heavily indoctrinated. The reality of Scientology is deceptively hidden and cleverly disguised. When I look at Scientology today, I have to forgive myself for not seeing through the manipulation sooner. I’ve spent the last 13 years keeping Scientology out of my life. It hasn’t been easy, but I’ve realized that the religion is built on a foundation of violence. I’m proud to add my voice to the many who, despite fear of retribution and humiliation, have come forward to tell of our experiences. This is my story.

    I liked the part where she watched "Going Clear" with her kids and they said how glad they were to not be Scientologists. :D

    Ex-Scientologist Carmen Llywelyn blasts 'cult' and her treatment after divorce with Jason Lee

    By Heather Saul, The Independent

    Last paragraph:

    A spokesperson for the Church of Scientology told The Independent: “This is yet another in a long series of shameless and transparent attempts by Ms. Llywelyn to get attention by exploiting her former Church. The Church of Scientology has had nothing to do with her for years, and had no involvement in her relationship with her former husband.”

    Perhaps the author of the NY Post piece? I dunno. I haven't read it, beyond seeing a tweet reproduced ITT.

    Sorry, I meant the person who tweeted the picture.
