Ex-Scientologists and Operation Reconnect The whole reason I'm here is that after 30+ years of not being engaged with Scientology on any level after leaving staff and after several moves and number changes, somehow the "church" found me again and tried to get me back in. I told them no thanks and take me off your mailing list, but they persisted. They started calling, and I have again asked them to stop to no avail. My last letter to them stated that every time I get a mailing or a call I am going to assume they agree that I can talk to whoever is on the other end about leaving the cult. Their attempts at communication ignored this and continue unto this day, and I have fulfilled my end of the bargain, answering by signed letter in the fashion I promised. It occurs to me that as we are entering the Reconnect phase that what I'm now going to do in my responses is to ask the caller a question from a list of possibilities depending on what I feel is right for that person. When's the last time you called your Mom? Do you know anyone who isn't allowed to talk to their family? Do you have any kids? etc. And generally, through their "reg cycle" just stay on target with my questions in pursuit of trying to get whoever has contacted me to take a look at this. My idea - in a general sense - is that I know a few ex-Scientologists who are also still being contacted by the "church" and have this same opportunity. This is what I'm doing. I would urge any exes still on lines (God knoweth how that happened to us) to do the same. In fact, should they persist anyway, we may want to think about forming our subjects around the campaign currently in operation in months to come.
