Leaving Scientology

From the SMH, a former high-ranking scientologist talks about why he left what he now considers to be a cult.

He joined the church in Sydney in 1976. He rose through the ranks and became a full-time employee before being sent to work for the church in the United States, where he joined Sea Org, Scientology's elite inner core.

Sea Org members must sign a billion-year contract to the church (because they believe in an afterlife this condition is taken very seriously).

The man who spoke up still lives in fear of retribution.
